Lion Strike Review
There is no shortage of supply in the safari-themed slot niche. These majestic beasts have become a firm favourite with slot enthusiasts the world over. And game producers, understandably, continue to create further additions to this category.
While Rabcat has thrown in a couple of quirky additions, it does feel like they have fallen slightly short of producing a real game-changer of a slot. But that's not to say that it isn't a good game. It has plenty of potential and visually, it does enough to hold your attention.
The Lion Strike logo is more than just a little reminiscent of the Lion King film. And there are various other elements that also seem slightly connected to this design idea. As the free spins kick out some decent wins, you’ll hear tribal music that wouldn't be out of place in the Disney hit movie either.
But back to this production, Rabcat has created a slick and attractive backdrop with animated elements bringing the reel-set to life. We join the scene at sunset for the base game and night falls over the plains as we trigger the bonus rounds. It's a fairly familiar process for games in this niche, but it is fairly eye-catching all the same.
Long stretches of time are spent in the regular base game. The Lion Spin feature can occur from time to time, which does help break up the cycle somewhat.
But being so highly volatile, it does feel like you spend some extremely long periods hammering away at the regular 5x4 grid while you pray for the scatter symbols to land. It is a very standard setup for the most part and this may not attract players looking for something a little more innovative.
As you might expect, this game offers a big maximum payout. It stands at 14,580x, so some lucky players may see their bankrolls roar with delight if everything goes their way.
There are various RTPs available ranging from 92% to 96.13%, so this is something to check out before you play. And once again, the game is highly volatile so don't expect any regular wins. Huge wins are possible but you will probably need to be in it for the long haul.
This visually pleasing slot production from Rabcat ticks many boxes but does leave a few questions unanswered. Lion Strike offers some clever additions, which will please many players. But the overall journey through this game isn't going to feel terribly different to many others in the genre.
