The Ultimate 5 Slot (Pragmatic Play)

The Ultimate 5 Slot (Pragmatic Play)Pragmatic Play seems to have big plans for 2022, and the developer has a couple of slots that are already available in online casinos.

With Ultimate 5, it’s all about the Big 5, creatures that are everyone’s favourite during the safari.

I will share my findings of this slot in the review below;

Game Set-Up

Pragmatic Play has stuck with everyone’s favourite reel design, and Ultimate 5 has 5x3 reels and up to 20 lines.

Several features are available here, among them Tree Wilds, free spins, Diamond scatters, and respins.

Betting and Prizes

Playing for real money is super exciting, and on this slot, you can place bets of as low as $0.20 per spin. I love the diversity that is on Ultimate 5 as the slot allows bets of up to $100.

There is an ultimate prize which is the Mega Jackpot, and you get to trigger it via the slot’s respins. There are four other versions of the jackpot, and these make up the Ultimate 5 line-up. We have the Maxi, Major, Minor, as well as Mini variants.

The Ultimate 5 has big potential, especially when you consider its useful features. The features that are likely going to help you hit it big include the Hold & Spin Super Boost.

Pragmatic Play has capped the winnings at 5,000x the wager on this game that also comes with brutally high volatility.

The RTP helps maintain some level of fairness, and although 96.50% is what you will get on most online casinos, the developer allows operators to lower it, so be sure to confirm.

The Ultimate 5 Slot Features

There is a wild feature (Tree) that serves as a replacement for other regular symbols.

It can also pay on its own if the Tree Wilds form a combo. The pay can go up to 20x the stake for each combo.

Diamond Free Spins will come via the scatter, and you can only land this once on every reel. Whenever it appears 3 to 5 times, it will bring lots of goodies that include payment of between 5x and 50x the stake, not to forget some free spins (8 to 12).

The free spins can be retriggered by landing an extra 2 to 5 scatters, and in this case, you will receive an additional 2 to 8 rounds.

The Ultimate 5 has another great feature that is known as Hold & Spin Super Boost. The Money icons (Sun symbols) are what will trigger this feature, and it can land on the mid reels 3+ times.

I noticed that these Money icons are accompanied by huge prizes that range between 1x to 500x the stake (regular to the Mega Jackpot).

Theme & Design

It’s a safari-themed video slot machine, and it is natural for the developer to borrow some inspiration from the popular Big 5.

The top-paying symbols are the Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, and Rhino. Royals are the usual low-value symbols, while the Diamond scatter, and the Wild Tree serves as the feature symbols.


The slot may not have the most original theme, but Ultimate 5 still manages to remain a fun game, thanks to the popular Hold & Win respins.

Everything seems to be well put together, and this makes it a title suitable for all levels of players.
