Shiny jewels can deliver rich rewards in Super Lion, a 5 reel, 10 payline jackpot video slot from Playtech. Brightly designed, this gem-themed game comes with expanding wild re-spins as well as offering a shot at a bumper progressive prize. Play on your desktop, tablet or mobile device from between 10p and £1,000 per spin.

Super Lion is a simply designed game – set against a star-filled purple backdrop, the symbols on the reels are clear and crisp. There is no playing card filler here, everything relates to the theme. The lower value symbols are a quintet of red, blue, purple, green and yellow jewels.

The gems are joined by a lucky red 7 which awards payouts of up to 125 times your stake as well as the Greek letter Omega which is the top payer, offering 50, 200 and 300 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. It’s worth noting here that Super Lion features a win both ways game engine with successful lines created from right to left as well as left to right.

The rainbow coloured lion is the wild and key to most of the game’s action. Landing on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, it replaces all other symbols. When it hits, you will trigger the Wild Re-Spin feature – the wild expands to fill the whole reel.

You’ll then be awarded a re-spin with the stacked wild locked in place – f another lion lands on the re-spin, it too will expand and you’ll receive another re-spin. Land a third and you’ll get another re-spin with 3 stacked wilds (3 wild reels) locked into the middle 3 reels. Needless to say, this offers some fantastic winning opportunities.

Super Lion also offers a chance to win a progressive jackpot – land all 5 of the different coloured gemstones on the same payline on the same spin and you’ll trigger the progressive payout.

Boasting classy design, a futuristic soundtrack and a regularly-hitting feature, Super Lion is a very playable video slot. No free spins usually raises a red flag but the re-spins come along so often we barely noticed. The pace remains high throughout with plenty to excite action junkies.

Throw in a shot at a progressive jackpot payout and Silver Lion offers plenty of entertainment and potentially big rewards. It’s basically NetEnt’s Starburst with a progressive jackpot element!
