There’s a special place in our hearts for the gaming realm’s uncontested leaders. In land-based casinos around the world, Aristocrat‘s legendary Buffalo Slot series reigns supreme. Despite its relative youth, LeoVegas Casino is widely renowned for its supremacy in the online gambling world (where its accessible, that is). And thanks to the expert engineers at Lightning Box Games, there’s a new online pokie that’s taking the helm among a swarm of competition.
I’m referring to the brand new Silver Lion Slot. It’s got everything a true pokies fan desires – multiple bonus features, over a thousand active paylines, re-triggerable free spins, stacked wilds with multipliers, incredible graphics, sound and animation. But you won’t find the Silver Lion at just any old casino. This bad boy is exclusively available at LeoVegas Casino.
It’s not often an internet gaming site invests the kind of money it takes to have a game exclusively branded just for them. But with LeoVegas being so phenomenally popular among European and Australian markets, it makes sense that they would go that extra mile to give their players something unique – something extra special – a new online pokie to make all other operators green with envy.
Silver Lion Slot Features
This new reel spinner was developed by Lightning Box Games and infused on LeoVegas via the Amaya platform. An oversized screen depicts a 5×4 reel set with 1,024 ways to win as all paylines run left to right, and right to left.
Immediately, I was a disappointed with the fact that its creators used the same old playing-card symbols we’ve grown so bored of (9, 10, J, Q, K, A), but aside from that, the game’s graphics are very well thought out and beautifully fabricated.
The game’s standard symbols include the Silver Lion himself, a Tribal Warrior, ferocious Hippo (yes, they are ferocious creatures, don’t you watch National Geographic?), majestic Zebras and mischievous Meerkats. The African Savanna’s famous Baobab Tree, backdropped by a gorgeous sunset, is the Wild symbol, with a sparkling Pink Sapphire as the Scatter.
The Wild only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. In the base game, it plays a typical role, taking the place of any other symbol needed to create the highest possible winning combination (except Scatters, of course). When free spins are active, the Wild’s abilities increase dramatically as they begin to stack on the screen, delivering multipliers of up to 27x times the triggering bet.
With 4 or more on anywhere the screen, Scatters become the highest paying symbol in this new online pokie, paying 400 credits for 4, and 800 for 5. They also unleash free spins when 3, 4 or 5 appear, awarding 8, 15 or 20 free spins respectively.
Not only are free spins able to be retriggered, it only takes 2 Pink Sapphires to get the job done when free spins are already active. It’s not uncommon for a free spin session to rack up 40 or more spins before returning to the base game. With stacked wild multipliers and just a little luck, that can mean super high payouts for players of the new Silver Lion Slot at LeoVegas Casino.
