The Ultimate 5 Slot

Our rating:
  • A safari-themed slot with a respin feature
  • Link symbols together to increase payouts
  • Fairly low win cap seems unfair

The Ultimate 5 slot from Pragmatic Play takes you off to the savannah where you’ll find the fearsome 5, some of the top predators in Africa including lions and cheetahs. It’s not the first time we’ve seen this theme, in fact it’s very similar in appearance to other slots over the years and it’s hard to differentiate them. Moving on, you have 5 reels and 3 rows to give you 20 pay lines. All you need is a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:

  • 10, Jack or Queen
  • King or Ace
  • Buffalo
  • Rhino
  • Elephant
  • Cheetah
  • Lion

There is also a wild, substituting for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the free spins and money symbols. It can appear on any reel.

The Ultimate 5 Slot Bonuses and Features

Hold and Spin Super Boost. If you land 3 or more money symbols, this bonus is triggered. Normal symbols disappear so only money symbols remain and can appear during the bonus, along with empty spaces. If a money symbol lands adjacent to another, they link and form a group, increasing their value, taken from one of the values shown on the side of the reels. Respins are also reset back to 3. Any symbols that don’t link don’t pay out at the end of the round. If all positions are filled, the value of all symbols is increased to the mega value.

Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this, you’ll need 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. This gives you 8 spins and a 5x stake payout, whereas 4 gives you 25x your stake and 10 free spins, while 5 gives you 50x and 12 spins. During these spins, symbols are removed at random, starting with 10 and going up to Ace. Whenever this happens, a wild is also guaranteed to land. You can win more free spins as well with more scatters that appear on top of other symbols. 2 of these gives you 2 free spins, 3 gives you 4, 4 gives you 6 and 5 gives you 8.

Conclusion

The Ultimate 5 slot from Pragmatic Play has some familiar features with a slight twist to differentiate it from similar rivals. This includes the respins bonus, which is similar to others but money symbols must join together in order to pay out. The free spins bonus has a low symbol removal feature which is nice, and you can win more spins but that’s all there is to it really. Perhaps the most disappointing aspect of this game is the cap of 5,000x, which doesn’t seem bad but it should be higher at 7,500x which is the true potential and it seems very stingy that this is reduced as the difference isn’t that great. Overall then, it’s a fairly average slot that’s worth checking out if you like the respin feature, but there’s nothing too special about it.
