The game takes place in a colourful cave underwater in green, blue and turquoise. You will see stalactites hanging from the top.

The menu bar you will see on the bottom.
On the reels, will be raining heavily and this creates a more authentic and impressive atmosphere. Each winning line is marked with turquoise glowing light. On both sides of the playing window, there is a statue of a stone lion guarding. The soundtrack is an epic orchestra that mixes with the sound of the stones falling from above and wins.

The symbols starting at the low end are the card royals J, Q, K and A. The J and Q pay 0.20, 1 and 4 times your stake for matching 3, 4 and 5 on a line from left to right. The K and A return 0.40x, 1x and 5x stake for 3, 4 and 5 matching ones.

The treasure chest is the top player in terms of payout, but the wild pays even more. It is a golden mask with the green that returns 0.40x, 0.80, 3x and 20x stake for 2, 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a pay-line. It substitutes all missing symbols and helps you score better wins oftener.
A central part of the gameplay takes the Rolling Reels mechanism. It is also used in Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs and Jungle Jim. Here it is spiced with many varied modifiers. These compensate for the lack of any bonus rounds.
Your expedition starts with symbols dropping from the top on the first spin. Winning combinations explode and make room for new ones. These will fall from above and take their places. The Rolling Reels process continues until you fail to land a win. Then it starts from the beginning.
Another addition to the mechanics of the Rolling Reels is the Win Metre feature. You notice it on the top of the window. It activates once you score a win on a cascade at the beginning of a new round. If you do, it will illuminate the more successive wins you get that are part of the same spin sequence. The process is this:
All these modifiers and multipliers are reset once the spin sequence ends. All winnings from the round are accumulated and paid at once. A single win line of 5 wilds with the highest multiplier of x27 gets you a 540x stake boost.
Treasures of Lion City ensures epic rounds and attractive payouts. This is thanks to the multipliers’ boost reaching to x 27. The transformations of premium symbols into wilds also help since the wild is the best-paying symbol of all. The £130,000 jackpot is not bad for a slot with medium volatility. Play it on any device for free and for real.
