The design of this slot machine is in-keeping with its theme, with an eerie view of sub-Saharan Africa beyond the reels with waving grass and trees standing as high as they can reach. Left and right of the reels are spears, so you are not alone on your journey.
Each of the reels are separated with spears and the symbols that fall upon those reels are; tree, Silver Lion, red diamond, tribal man, zebra, meerkats, hippo and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The soundtrack will play various bird song and animal roars whilst the reels are motionless, but when you spin the reels, you will hear a mystical yet tranquil tune. A winning combination will trigger the birds to fly around the screen, which drags your mind into the heart of Africa.
Use the control panel to the lower of the reels to set your stake. The message bar will highlight various ways that you can win along with the bonus features with this game.

Slot Game Features
You will encounter just two different features with this slot machine, but each of which can produce some eye-watering returns. These are:
- Wild: the tree is your wild and will substitute for any other symbol (bar the red diamond) to help you create winning paylines. The wild appears on reels 2,3 and 4 only.
- Free spins: three diamond symbols awards 8 free spins, four diamonds awards 15 free spins whilst 5 diamonds awards 20 free spins. During your free spins the wild symbol will multiply any prize from 2x up to 27x randomly. Spin in two more diamond symbols and you will be rewarded with 5 additional free spins.
With a name like Silver Lion, we were expecting the lion to be the star of the show – or the slot in this case, but the main attraction is the red diamond. Yes, the lion offers some great cash prizes, but when it comes to features – the diamond steals the limelight. This slot machine does lack bonus features, but the free spins bonus with the potential to stack your bankroll with up to 27x multipliers is superb in itself.
When we played this medium to high variance slot machine, it took a good few spins before triggering the free spins – but there were plenty of winning combinations to be had on our journey. We recommend you try the game in demo mode first to get used to how the game is played and the limited features on offer.
The return to player (RTP) percentage of Silver Lion slot game is 95.26%.
