Lion's Law

Konami Gaming

Lion's Law

This new video slot is one of a special group within Konami’s K2V video series, designed for high denominations. Lion’s Law is a five-reel, five-line video slot available in quarter, 50-cent, dollar, and denominations.

The game itself is simple and volatile, with comparatively low hit frequency and a free-spin bonus event. Three, four or five “RICH” symbols trigger five, eight or 12 free games, respectively.

The bonus event is spiced up with Konami’s “MirrorReels” feature. During the feature, the outer reels will display the same symbols, and the second and fourth reels will display the same symbols. This jacks up the hit frequency significantly for the bonus round. Additional free spins can be won during the free-spin round.

Konami is one of few manufacturers taking the bold move of offering high-denomination slots in an atmosphere where most slot-makers are concentrating on pennies. The novelty of higher denominations plus the familiarity of the multi-line video format should go far toward merging two diverse segments of the player base.
