There's nothing fancy about the gameplay of 50 Lions. With 50 paylines, it has more ways to win than most classic video pokies you'll find in offline venues, but otherwise it's exactly the same.
You can bet anything between a few cents and over 100 AUD per spin, so players needn't worry about the size of their bankroll restricting them from playing.
The base jackpot is just 1,000 coins, which is very low by today's standards, but that also means that this is a low variance slot i.e. you can still come away with some extra padding for your bankroll even if you don't hit the jackpot.
In practice, how you do from a session playing 50 Lions can vary massively. Sometimes we've won several hundred coins on our second or third spin, but other times we've demolished a sizeable bankroll with very few wins.
The bonus round, which holds 10 free spins with extra wilds on every consecutive spin, can result in some pretty nice wins but it's not too astonishing either.
