Special and Bonus Features

Great Golden Lion has a handful of fantastic bonus features players should be aware of…

  • Mystery Red Envelope

This feature can randomly trigger after any spin in the base game. When it does, the Red Envelope will reveal a multiplier that will be applied to any winnings. It only lasts for one spin.

  • Jackpot Pick Feature

This feature can be triggered randomly any time a RED COIN is collected. When this feature is triggered, players will be taken to a game board with 15 Gold Coins. Once a player picks a coin, it will reveal itself as a Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot or an Upgrade Coin.

Once a player reveals 3 identical symbols, they will be awarded that prize. If they collect 3 Upgrade Coins then whatever jackpot is won will be upgraded to the next level. If the Grand is won it will be doubled.

  • Hold and Spin Feature

The hold and spin is a very popular feature with slot players. Great Golden Lion has taken that idea and supersized it. When players spin into a Gold Coin, it will reveal itself as either a Red, Blue or Green coin. They will then fill up the same pot at the top of the game board. Once a pot over flows with coins, the hold and spin will be triggered.

If a Red Pot is triggered, players will receives a Jackpot Feature. A Blue Pot triggers the Grand Feature (5×3 game board with 6 coins held to start). A Green Pot triggers the Regal Feature (5×4 board with 8 coins held). A Blue and Green Pot triggering rewards the Majestic Feature (5×5 game board with 10 coins held). A Blue and Red Pot will reward the Epic Feature (5×3 game board with 6 spots held). A Red and Green Pot will trigger the Legendary Feature (5×4 game board with 8 coins held). All three pots triggering will reward the Mythical Feature (5×5 game board with 10 coins held).

Players will begin with 3 respins. Any time a Green Lion lands on the board, the respins will return to 3. The Green Lion will change to Gold and reveal a multiplier. The Hold and Spin feature ends when there are no more respins OR all the spots are filled. If that happens, players will want he Grand Jackpot.
