Silk Road is another slot that is arguably among the relatively lesser lights in the Aristocrat range, although that certainly hasn’t prevented it from going on to become one of the most popular games in Australia and beyond. Indeed, that popularity ensured that it became a part of Aristocrat’s online selection, which can be enjoyed by any player that is outside the company’s blocked territories. Of course, if you’re in one of those blocked countries then that isn’t much use to you! Fortunately, we’re on hand as always to offer up the very best online slots for fans of Silk Road. These games have been selected from the extensive Mr Gamez catalogue for replicating the theme, gameplay and, wherever possible, both at the same time. Each of our choices below can be tested out at your leisure by playing them in full right here on the site. When you find that they really do represent the cream of Silk Road online alternatives, then you can move on to playing for real cash at the featured casinos that accompany each game. So, let’s get straight into the action!
Desert Treasure – Desert Treasure occasionally crops up as an alternative to one of Aristocrat’s many Egyptian themed games such as Queen of the Nile II. However, there is a definite Arabian influence on this Playtech slot and that makes it absolutely perfect for any Silk Road discussion. The key to its inclusion here is the visuals, as everything, right down to the yellow background, would certainly not look out of place on Aristocrat’s own game. When you throw in the fact that the game also makes use of wild cards and free spins as bonus features then you’re well on the way to having arguably the perfect online alternative. Indeed, the only glaring difference is that while Silk Road offers 243 ways to win, Desert Treasure makes use of a more conventional twenty win line layout. That aside, for fans of the atmosphere and features, you really can’t go wrong here.
Untamed Wolf Pack – If the 243 ways to win system is absolutely crucial to your enjoyment of Silk Road, then you may have to sacrifice some of the visual flair. Untamed Wolf Pack by Microgaming is one of the core titles in their very own series of games and, more importantly, it offers the same staking options and betting patterns that you’ll have become accustomed to on Silk Road. The wolf theme may have little to do with the desert backdrop of Aristocrat’s game, but that’s not the only thing that warrants inclusion among our selections. Like Desert Treasure, Untamed Wolf Pack also makes use of free spins and wild cards as two of the core features, although there are many more besides. It all adds up to one of the closest gameplay experiences to the Aristocrat original that you could ever hope to find online.
The Finer Reels of Life – We’ve deviated from the theme once again to bring you The Finer Reels of Life. The game itself has plenty in common with Untamed Wolf Pack all told, and so we’ve included it as another themed option to very similar gameplay. The 243 ways to win system is once again in full effect, and free spins are yours when you manage to line up the correct scatter combination. Everything that makes Untamed Wolf Pack a viable alternative to Silk Road also applies to The Finer Reels of Life, but it simply gives you, the player, more choice as to which of the various themes you’d like to play with. If it proves to be a tricky decision then you’ll be pleased to know that you can not only check out both slots here at Mr Gamez, but also at the very same casinos, so you can make a decision and build your bankroll at the same time!
Victorious – Our fourth and final selection is something of a mix of everything that our previous recommendations cover. The Ancient Roman theme on Victorious may not quite be identical to what Silk Road has to offer, but the predominantly yellow colour scheme is replicated here. Net Entertainment has for once not focused on making the graphics absolutely breath-taking, instead opting for functional and bold, which will definitely be familiar to any Aristocrat fans. 243 ways to win are once again the order of the day, so any betting strategies from Silk Road will also apply here and you can enjoy free spins that are even more lucrative, given the fact that the Victorious bonus round applies a three times multiplier to each and every one of your prizes. While none of our choices could be said to be absolutely identical to Aristocrat’s game, they do an excellent job of filling the void between them and we encourage you to check them out either for no deposit play here at Mr Gamez, or for real cash at the featured casinos.
