Big 5 is a Microgaming developed slot machine game, but unlike many other Microgaming developed classic slots, there are no special features of any kind to be had in this slot. That is worrying, then, since we have become accustomed to at least wild symbols and multipliers in Microgaming’s one-armed bandits. Big 5 is an animal themed slot, although only lions appear on the reels, alongside your customary bars and cherries. Players will find a single payline in this 3-reel slot, and coin values range from 0.25 up to 5.00, with up to 3 coins able to be wagered per spin. Expect to be spending at least 0.25 a spin on this game, whilst maximum wagers can extend up to 15.00 per spin at most.
Payouts and symbols
Although there are plenty of animals showcased in the game’s backdrop, there are only lions on the reels. These lions are the best paying symbols in the game, but unlike other Microgaming slots, they only offer out cash prizes.
Lower paying symbols can see players pocket between 2 and 15 coins for any 1 or 2 cherries appearing on the reels. Players can pocket between 5 and 15 coins for any 3 bars, and between 10 and 30 coins for 3 single bar icons on a payline. Land 3 cherries to win between 20 and 60 coins, or three 5 icons to win between 50 and 150 coins.
Winning the jackpot
The gap between the so-so prizes and the jackpot prizes is pretty vast. Obviously, the more coins you wager per spin, the better the cash prizes are going to be. Players can win a cool 800 coins if they line up 3 lion symbols on the game’s payline with a single-coin bet. Do so with a 2-coin bet and you can win up to 1,600 coins. If you wish to get your hands on the non-progressive jackpot of 2,500 coins, you will need to find all 3 lions on the game’s solitary payline with a 3-coin bet wagered. This is certainly not going to be easy, but the prize makes it worth a punt.
As we’ve said before, though, the lack of any special features of any kind is a bit of a downer, and there are other Microgaming developed classic slots which offer you more, and with cheaper stakes, as well as equally as impressive prizes.
