Lion’s Hoard Review
The theme is fantastical, so there’s no true backstory to the slot, but the developer has done a splendid job at visualising what this treasure trove would look like if it were real. They filled the reels with precious gems and perched lion guardians above them to act as scatter hoarders. The start is slow, but the minute you land a blue diamond scatter or fill the metres with four white ones, the features will start unravelling at a breakneck speed.
Do you have the courage to enter the unpredictable lion’s den? Read our slot review below and get fully prepared for the unexpected.

Lion’s Hoard Bonus Features
Lion’s Hoard can look intimidating, but it’s a very simple slot with 2 of its bonus features, Diamond Reels and reel multipliers, taking place within the base game. As there are no familiar
bonus rounds, the scatter collection feature acts as the central trigger in unleashing a chain of surprising events in this unusual game.
Wilds don’t land organically in Lion’s Hoard. Still, they can sometimesappear stacked within the mystery Diamond Reels and substitute for other symbols to form a winning combination.
White sparkly diamonds are scatter symbols that can activate the Diamond Reels, but the blue diamond is even more powerful. If it takes four white diamonds to activate one Diamond Reel at a time, landing just one blue diamond scatter will turn all four reels into Diamond Reels in one go. However, blue scatters are hard to come by, as they only land on the middle reel.
Landing one blue diamond scatter on reel 3 or filling the lion metres, sitting atop reels 1, 2, 3 and 4, with 4 white diamonds activates the Diamond Reels. Each of these reels contains sticky mystery stones which will remain on the reels and keep revealing a new stack of identical symbols on every spin until it participates in a winning combination.
As mentioned earlier, stacked wilds can also land at this point. If any of the Diamond Reels unveil 4 wilds in a stack, they’ll merge into one sticky super wild and replace the mystery stones until they hit a winning combination.
Even when one or all Diamond Reels are already activated, you can still collect white diamonds in the metre. Every new white diamond that overflows the counter will increase the multiplier of that reel.
If the blue diamond scatter shows up when any of the lion metres are filled with diamonds, it will also increase the respective multipliers.
Lion’s Hoard Jackpot
Lion’s Hoard is not a jackpot slot, but it has a fixed max potential of 7,150x your stake, which you can win thanks to the Diamond Reels and increasing multipliers.
RTP and Volatility
We’re slightly disappointed to reveal that the Lions’ Hoard RTP rate is set to 95.77% as a default, but it can be even lower. The volatility, however, is rated high by the developer, which is perfect for this type of slot.
