Lions are some of the creatures that were generally found in abundance in ancient Asia. However, according to the ancient Asian folks, the lions originating from the northern parts and lions originating from the southern region of the continent were all different in terms of characteristics.

In turn, when the lions were being assigned special symbolic powers, the lions originating from the north were given their own symbolic powers distinct from those given to lions originating from the southern region.

Whilst this was the case, annually, the northern and southern lions were invited to a dance festival where they would clash in showcasing their special dancing powers. The event was a great spectacle but it was also of critical significance as it meant that the symbolic powers of the northern lions and those of the southern lions were released at the same time for the benefit of the community.

What makes the game even more special is the fact that it comes with an above average RTP standing at 96.00% – this, therefore, meaning the probability of the player walking away with some handsome wins is highly enhanced.
