Finally! Aristocrat have been bringing their slot games online gradually in recent years and now they have added the 50 Lions game to the armoury, along with the 50 Dragons slot, Queen Of The Nile and Miss Kitty (with more coming). As I write, the 50 Lions slot is exclusive to Game Account who operate MoneyGaming and also sub-licence the 50 Lions slot and other Aristocrat games to Mecca Games.
Most land-based slots players will be more than familiar with the 50 Lions slot - and probably 100 Lions too although that variant is more popular in Asia - I saw both a lot when I was at the Venetian Casino in Macau a couple of years back although 50Lions didn't seem to be as popular as the 50 Dragons slot - they are basically the same slots anyway, just with different symbology.
Anyway, personally I love 50 Lions. I was making up a video for the Slotjunkies site when I hit a really decent pay-out with stacked Lion symbols on every reel - in fact all bar 4 symbols were covered and I won 300x. So guess what - the 50 Lions video below is of that very same Big Win ;) It also shows the free spins bonus in action.
In actual fact, while you depend on the free spin feature on many slots, it's not quite the same with 50 Lions. Sure it's good to get, but the only real advantage of the 10 free spins over normal play - apart from the fact each spin is free of course - is extra stacked wild symbols. It normally means you will get at least one decent hit but unlike other Aristocrat slot machines the big wins can happen pretty much anytime thanks to the stacked Lions.
At the moment, the 50 Lions slots are restricted to exclusive agreements with Game Account although they are expected to be rolled out to other casinos soon. We will add all the places where you can play 50 Lions online as they come on-board so be sure to bookmark this page and if and when Aristocrat release 100 Lions online, you'll hear about it here first!
