Silver Lion Slot

Silver Lion

silver lion slotSilver Lion is Lightning Box’s addition to the crowded world of African wildlife slot games, could this romping adventure, featuring the mysterious Silver Lion, be better than the average game in this genre, or would it fall foul of my inner poacher and be downed in its tracks? I donned my pith helmet and dusted off my binoculars to prepare for the slot action.

Look and feel

This game is all about “big game” or it could be about catching a glimpse of the magical beast. Whereas the King Kong Fury slot lives up to its name and is high octane action, Silver Lion is a more chilled affair- all in homage to those big beasts of the plains!

The background of play did lull me into a relaxed state with a calming landscape of tall grasses and warm breezes. The reels are set against the savannah with warriors spears making up the frame for the slots- the game is afoot!

The graphics of Silver Lion are slightly dated giving the game an 80s look, but for some this will just add retro charm, with the Silver Lion of the game’s title receiving some rough treatment or maybe that’s just what it looks like!!

The background sounds of play are pretty full-on with a world of animals and birds just waiting for your arrival- there is the occasional and unnerving roar of a silver lion so keep your wits about you (or turn off the sound- it is quite an intrusive menagerie of sound!).

Game play

Silver Lion is a 4 row, 5 reel and 1024 ways to win slot game- but wins must start on the left towards the right.

The high value icons of the game are all our best pals from the wilds of the African savannah including the wild silver lion (animated to run at you!!), local shield-toting warrior bedecked in furs, a zebra, a troop of animated meerkats and one hungry looking hippo. The lower value icons are the Ace through 9 of the card deck.

The Wild is the silhouette of a baobab tree against a dramatic sunset and this icon shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4, it substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter which is a giant pink diamond with the word Bonus.

This game has some cute touches, when you make a win, gold coins shower up onto the reels which is rather a gratifying effect and the animated animals make for an element of fun.

If the sun is shining on you and you land three or more of those pink diamonds then you activate Silver Lions’ bonus feature with 3 ,4 or 5 bonus icons earning you a welcome 8, 15 or 20 free spins respectively! Now that might just be worth roaring about! And there’s more, if you can land Wilds during this feature, then these can double or even triple your win. If you land several, each one you land can potentially have the same effect- making for some stonking multiplier action. Were you to land three triple multipliers in the feature- 27 mighty freebie spins! This bonus game is certainly a generous one, you just need to land a pair of further Scatters to be awarded 5 free spins, and there’s always the possibility of a whole new freebie bonus round if you land 3 of these shiny gems.

Conclusion

I admit that I struggled with the game’s sound effects which make you feel slightly overtaken by big beasts but the game’s retro look has a certain charm and when it comes to brass tacks the bonus game comes with a very generous multiplier and a whole savannah full of free spins. The mechanics of the game are solid; it just has a niche look and feel.
