The Ultimate 5 slot by Pragmatic Play! The plains of the Savannah open wide on your screen in this wildlife-themed slot that boasts a Hold and Spin round and a Free Games bonus governed by the five rulers of the wilderness: the Lion, the Cheetah, the Elephant, the Rhino, and the Buffalo.
This is slot that puts the beauties of the untouched wildlife into the spotlight! Free Spins symbols that pay up to 50x the bet, Respins, and Progressive Free Spins – they all come together on a 3×5 grid with 20 paylines to create the Savannah adventure with a top award of 5000x the bet you’ve been seeking.
How to Play
As the title hints, The Ultimate 5 slot brings the ultimate experience in online slots, providing a rather classic 3×5 reels format with 20 active paylines. The symbols pay left to right on adjacent reels.
- Lion – Pays 20x the bet for five on a payline
- Cheetah – Pays 12.5x the bet for five on a payline
- Elephant – Pays 10x the bet for five on a payline
- Rhino – Pays 5x the bet for five on a payline
- Buffalo – Pays 4x the bet for five on a payline
- A Symbol – Pays 2x the bet for five on a payline
- K Symbol – Pays 2x the bet for five on a payline
- Q Symbol – Pays 1x the bet for five on a payline
- J Symbol – Pays 1x the bet for five on a payline
- 10 Symbol – Pays 1x the bet for five on a payline
- WILD – replaces all symbols on winning paylines, except for the Free Spins and Money ones. The Wild can’t substitute the animal symbols if there’s one of each on a payline.
- FREE SPINS – lands anywhere on the reels and pays up to 50x the bet for 5 on the screen.
- MONEY SYMBOL – appears on reels 2, 3, and 4 in the base game, and on all reels when the Respins round is active.
- FREE SPINS OVERLAY – hits on top of other symbols during the Free Spins.
Landing one of each of the five animal symbols on a payline brings a sweet award of 100x the total bet.
How to Win
HOLD AND SPIN SUPER BOOST – the Money Symbols can take the value of one of the Jackpots (500x – Mega, 100x – Maxi, 75x – Major, 50x – Minor, 25x – Mini) or one of the following values: 10x, 8x, 7x, 6x, 5x, 4x, 3x, 2x, 1x the total bet.
The round is triggered with 3x Money Symbols on the reels. Similar to any Respins round in a Pragmatic Play online slot, the feature starts with the symbols that activated it on the grid. During this round, the reels will bring only Money Symbols or empty cells into play.
If a Money Symbol lands adjacently to another Money Symbol, they will link, forming a group. The symbols that are part of a group get their value increased to the next possible higher value.
The bonus round starts with 3 Respins, but you can quickly add more as Money Symbols that hit and link with others reset the Respins back to 3, and remain on the reels until the end of the feature. The round ends when there are no more respins to play or when the screen is filled with Money Symbols.
It’s important to know that only linked symbols pay at the end of the Hold And Spin Super Boost round. However, if a Money Symbol hits in such a way that another lonely Money Symbol can link to it, the latter will start behaving like a linked Money Symbol. That’s what we call group power!
If you manage to fill all 15 positions on the grid with Money Symbol, you will be awarded the Mega Jackpot.
FREE SPINS – The Free Games round provides 8, 10, or 12 Free Spins for 3, 4, or 5 Free Spins symbols on the reels. This feature comes with a progressive touch that can remove the lowest paying symbol randomly, on any spin, as follows:
- On the 1st random level up, all 10 Symbols are removed from the reels.
- On the 2nd random level up, all J Symbols are removed from the reels.
- On the 3rd random level up, all Q Symbols are removed from the reels.
- On the 4th random level up, all K Symbols are removed from the reels.
- On the 5th random level up, all A Symbols are removed from the reels.
At any level up, a Wild symbol is guaranteed to land on the reels during the current spin.
If you think the Free Spins round can’t get any juicer, think again! Here’s when the Free Spin overlay comes into action – it adds 2, 4, 6, or 8 Free Games if 2, 3, 4, or 5 hit.
The reels and jackpots are placed on a serene backdrop brought to life by the childish, yet engaging soundtrack. The animal symbols are designed beautifully, giving the entire video slot a sharp and clean look.
The Ultimate 5 slot is anything but flat, featuring a smashing Hold And Spin Super Boost round that offers not only the key to landing one of the Jackpots but also a chance to get your hands on a money award. What’s more, the Free Spins bonus is here to get the low-paying symbols out of your way, leaving you a clear path to those big wins.
