There are some pokies that you play for their themes, some that you play for their features, and some that you play for the way they look and sound. The Super Lion slot from the Skywind Group is one of the latter. We're tempted to describe it as a rather blatant rip-off of the Starburst pokie from NetEnt, but we'll let you play both of those games and decide for yourself. One thing is for sure, though - if you enjoy Starburst you'll also enjoy Super Lion, and this 2019 release has a top prize that is worth almost twice as much as that offered by NetEnt's original hit.

Super Lion Slot Quick Facts
About Super Lion Slot
Like Starburst, Super Lion is a five-reel slot with three rows and ten pay lines. The reels are transparent, and the game takes place somewhere in outer space. An ambient soundtrack plays throughout, and the whole game has a bright, almost neon-coloured theme. Also like Starburst, this game pays both ways.
The big difference between the two games (apart from the fact that Starburst came out in 2012 when the concept was genuinely original) is that the top prize in Super Lion is worth 993 times your bet. That compares well with the top prize in Starburst, which was 500 times the bet, but there's little else that Super Lion can claim as its own.
The lower-value symbols in the Super Lion slot game are five jewels of various shapes and colours: red, purple, pink, green, and yellow. A red 7 is a higher-value symbol, and a blue Omega symbol is the most valuable of the bunch, paying 300 times your stake for five on a pay line. A multi-coloured lion symbol that seems to be fashioned from some kind of space crystal serves as an expanding wild and appears on the second, third, and fourth reels only.
How to Play Super Lion Slot
Super Lion is a very simple and straightforward game, so it's just as suitable for a player enjoying their very first online casino experience as it is for someone who has been around for years.
Your first task is to make sure that the stake per spin is what you'd like it to be. You can click the plus and minus signs on either side of the TOTAL BET panel until the value shown is the one you want to play with. Then, when you want to spin the reels, simply press the green circular arrow button below the fifth reel.
As in NetEnt's Starburst game, you need three or more symbols on adjacent reels to win a prize, and the reels pay both ways - from left to right and also from right to left. If you manage to land five symbols of the same kind on a pay line, the combination will pay twice.
Click the AUTO button to the left of the spin button and you'll be able to set the game to play a set number of spins automatically on your behalf. This is very useful if you just want to sit and relax rather than manually initiating every spin. If you'd also like to speed things up a bit, you can easily do so by toggling a TURBO button into the green ON position.
The Super Lion symbol is an expanding wild, so it will expand to fill its entire reel whenever it appears. This could help you to complete a winning combination or improve an existing winner.
Whether or not the expanding wild helps you to achieve or improve a win, it will always trigger a Wild Respin. The expanded wild will remain in place and all other reels will respin to give you another chance of winning.
It is perfectly possible for more wilds to land during a Wild Respin. When this happens, any wild will expand to fill its reel, as usual. All expanded wilds will then be held in place and another Wild Respin of the remaining reels will be awarded, giving you yet another opportunity to win.
A progressive jackpot can be won in this game by getting five glowing gems - one of each type - on the same pay line.

Super Lion Slot Pros and Cons
Super Lion Slot: Our Verdict
If we were reviewing this game on its own terms in a cultural vacuum, we'd be very impressed. The vividly colourful visuals, ambient space soundtrack and simplicity of format all help to make Super Lion a massively enjoyable slot. The problem is that we aren't reviewing this game in a cultural vacuum, and NetEnt's Starburst game gave us all of this way back in 2012. Aesthetically, we still prefer Starburst, but if you want to win as much as possible, Super Lion will suit you better with its top prize of 993 times your bet.
