Find your flippers and grab your goggles, because you will be exploring an ancient sunken city and amassing its treasures! Treasures of Lion City, a brand-new online pokies game with 5 reels and 25 paylines, is due to go live at our casino in less than a month’s time.
The city in the game puts a fantasy spin on an actual site in China. The Lion City in which the action takes place is at the bottom of the Asian country’s deepest sea; however, the place on which it is based lies more than 30m below the surface of Qiandao Lake. The city, which was founded in 621 A.D., is known as China’s Atlantis. It was flooded in the 1950s, when the dam that created the lake was constructed.
As fascinating as the site is, the city you can visit with spins of the new from Microgaming partner Pulse 8 Studios is far more interesting. You certainly wouldn’t find the elixir of life or Rolling Reels™ with a Win Meter at the bottom Qiandao Lake, would you?
A Quest For Ancient Treasures
The Treasures of Lion City consist of gold, potions, and other esteemed objects. When it comes to awarding payouts, the game will follow the usual rules about 3 like symbols forming a combination on a payline.
Green on grey playing cards featuring J, Q, K, and A award prizes with lower values. The more valuable symbols include a single blue crystal, a cluster of green crystals, a bottle of the elixir of life, a helmet crowned with a dragon, and a wooden chest filled with gold coins and other precious objects. The special symbol is a gold lion’s face that features the word ‘Wild’.
Features to Boost Winnings
The Treasures of Lion City Wild can substitute for all the other symbols. The Wild will act as a replacement when in a position to do so, and when this happens, it will help complete wins. There are no other distinct bonus symbols, because special icons do not trigger the other features.
The Rolling Reels feature is one that many players are familiar with, and is always a popular addition to any game. In the new game from Microgaming’s creative partner, it comes with added power. The feature will remove winning combinations from the reels before replacing them with new symbols and it also will retrigger if the new symbols also form wins. That is all per usual. What you might not have seen before is the Win Meter connected to the Rolling Reels.
The first Rolling Reel win will turn the elixir bottle into an additional Wild. The third consecutive win will turn the helmet into an extra Wild. The fifth consecutive win will turn the treasure chest Wild. Landing seventh, ninth, and eleventh consecutive wins will unlock 3x, 9x, and 27x Multipliers.
Dive In and Be a Winner
The paylines that run across the reels of the Treasures of Lion City are fixed, which means they all are active and you will not be able to alter the number of lines in play. However, the new game will let you choose the coin denomination. The values range between 0.01 and 0.50, and the minimum and maximum bets are set at 0.25 and 50.00, respectively.
The game is medium volatility, which means it should offer the perfect blend of action. There are large wins to be enjoyed every now and again, as well as more frequent smaller wins. Thousands of simulated gaming rounds calculated that the RTP is 94.20%, and the hit rate is 21.89%, so there are winning opportunities galore.
The Treasures of Lion City goes live on the 10th of December and you can enjoy all the action and adventure it offers at Mummys Gold online casino.
