Silver Lion is a safari-themed slot game by Lightning Box Gaming. What’s pleasing is the developers have avoided using the traditional color scheme that is so characteristic for this theme. Instead, there’s a very serene dark blue and purple sky in the backdrop, towering over the very discreet yellow of the grasslands.
In addition to that serenity, the game also lacks the annoying music that is also pretty cliché for safari slots. You will be hearing animal sounds and a very mellow tune during spins. To top it all off, the graphics are also beyond satisfying. Players will even get a chance to enjoy some entertaining animated sequences with the wild life on the reels.
The lion sleeps tonight
Silver Lion has 5 reels and 4 rows, with a whopping total of 1024 ways to win. This game is ideal for medium to high roller players, with stakes ranging from 40c to R280 per spin. The slot features your regular playing card symbols, all neatly styled to fit the general theme. They include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
Following them are the several representatives of the animal kingdom, starting with the adorable meerkats. After them comes a pair of zebras, following which is the majestic hippopotamus. Last but not least is an African hunter with spear and shield and the Silver Lion himself. The Wild symbol in the game is the baobab tree, which can replace all other symbols, save for the Scatter.
Silver Lion Bonus Feature
The Scatter, in turn, comes in the form of a Diamond and triggers the freespins feature. If you land 3, 4 or 5 Diamond Scatters on the reels, you can receive 8, 15 or 20 free-spins respectively. In addition, you can gain an extra 5 free-spins during the feature if you land another 2 Diamond Scatters. And to make things better, each Wild Tree appearing throughout the duration of the free-spins will grant you a multiplier. As a result, it can multiply your prize by up to 27 times!
The End Result
Silver Lion makes for a satisfying gaming experience. There aren’t any flashy effects or flamboyant animated features, but the graphics are outstanding and the winning possibilities are great.
