Lion's Roar Slots is a fun little animal themed game with a lot of heart and interesting design decisions. The art is nice, albeit a little quirky, and it plays like a dream. It even pays well too! We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with it, mostly wishing that they had put a little more care into the titular Lion graphics, as for us some of them feel a bit stiff and fall flat. Other than that, however, it’s a wonderful slot set to give many a player a wonderful time wherever they’re at.
The premise of Lion's Roar Slots is lions. Surprised? We know. We didn’t mean to spoil it, but this is a review, and we’ve a job to do here. It’s out in the African Savannas for us, featuring a usual crop of what you would expect there, all vaguely lion themed. Save for the playing card suits, but maybe lions play cards? We don’t know and we’re too afraid to ask.
Graphics in Lion's Roar Slots are really great, albeit stiff. Everything is crisp, clear, colorful, and compelling to look at, which makes your time spent playing all the easier because of how easy they are on the eyes. The lions themselves, however, are all seemingly from 3d renders. While the renders themselves are well done, they don’t have the personality or character that the other tiles do. It’s not bad, but the longer you spend with the game, the more it sticks out and starts to grate on you. Still, that’s a minor gripe, and we’re sure animal lovers will love the attention to detail and the lovely UI.
Gameplay in Lion's Roar Slots is fairly standard. At 5 reels and 50 pay lines, it does not break the mold there, chosing instead to keep things classy in ways we can respect.
Betting here ranges from a penny to $10, making this an accessible slot that anyone can jump into in hopes of winning a lot of money without worrying about necessarily breaking the bank in the process. Max bets cap out around $100, which tends to be how we rolled when we played it a bunch for our review.
Free spins abound, and each have a 2x multiplier, which is a nice teach. The Roaring Free Spins Round expands this to 5x, which is even better as you might mathematically expect.

Who is this Game For?
This game is suitable for players of all types. In particular, it should appeal to:
* Players new to digital slots and looking for something relatively accessible
* Moderate intensity players that have gotten their feet plenty wet in the online slots world and are looking for something a little more involved
* Jaded slot vets
* People that mostly want to win a bunch of money playing digital slot games
* Players looking for slot nostalgia for the similarities and differences this slot has to other games
* People more used to normal video games that are looking to get their feet wet in the world of online slots
Who is the Game NOT For?
Although we enjoy this slot, it is not for everybody. In particular, it may not be your cup of tea if this describes you in any fashion:
* Averse to winning money online
* Looking for something truly innovative in the genre
* You find the theme in any way offputting
Is it Buggy?
In the time we spent playing this game, we did not encounter any bugs, problems, or errors. The same cannot be said for all slots of this genre, so we commend the developers for a job well done on that. We also encountered no issues in processing winnings or payments, and everything ran very smooth just like you would expect across many varied devices in a variety of ecosystems and operating systems.
Lion's Roar Slots is an animal lover’s dream. It plays pretty well and looks pretty decent, only suffering from some minor stiffness in an otherwise wonderful game. We enjoyed our time with it all around, and do wish it had some nice features like a progressive jackpot, but it still plays well enough. We found payouts to be fair and come fairly often, as well as enjoyed our time spent with the bonus rounds with higher multipliers.
If you like what you’ve read, and like what you see, feel free to give it all a spin. We think this is a great fit for many players, and hope it does well on the market for that reason. We’re also afraid the lions will come and eat us if we don’t praise it.
