The wombat says: I like my slots on the wild side (I am a Wombat after all), and as a Microgaming release I expected Silver Fang to push all my buttons! With Silver Fang as the title ( yes it’s all about a massive wolf with teeth sharper than a needle on the Hot Ink slot) we are looking forward to some savage game play. The slot is set in the icy reaches of wolf territory, and the leader of the pack is you, Silver the Fang, the biggest wildest beast of them all.
I am one wild marsupial, so would the prospect of dominating the pack have my jaws slathering in anticipation? Let’s spin those reels and show the wolves who’s boss.
Look and Feel
This game looks slick with the background and icons creating a dramatic tone. The game is set against a snowy and lonely forest at nightfall, while the reels are artic white with icons borrowed from the great outdoors. This game goes up an extra gear when it comes to class, with great touches like an animated Wild that adds to the overall quality of the game.
Oh, and the soundtrack’s not bad either. With drum beats and eery piping it ratchets up the tension of the slot quite nicely.
Silver Fang has 5 reels, 3 rows and 50 pay-lines- quite a few more than the likes of the Football Champions Cup slot (with 20) and others. The high value icons are the great big bloody wolf Silver Fang of the game’s title, two nervous-looking elks sniffing the air, and a Silver Fang logo. The lower paying icons on the reels include the usual playing cards A, K, Q, J & 10.
The Wild in Silver Fang slot is an animated howling wolf by moonlight; and it will replace all other symbols except the Scatter to help you make winning combos. If you find yourself in the free spin feature the Wild really becomes interesting, with it landing stacked on the reels – this means you can make even more winning combos.
Free Spins Action
The Scatter comes in the shape of the snowy footprint of a huge wolf. If you get lucky and land 3x or more these imposing Scatters anywhere across the reels, then you’ll win a massive 15 free spins!
And, if nature really pushes you to the top of the food chain and you win during the Free Spin feature, then you can see some wolfishly good returns with a very generous multiplier of 5x your stake. Aaaaarrrrrrrroooo!
Once you’ve made a win you can choose enter play the Gamble feature where you can add to your riches. All you need to do is to guess the colour or suit of the next card to be turned over- with correct colour choice doubling your winnings, or the right suit quadrupling your dosh- now that’s how to lead the pack!
This critter loved the great outdoor theme and the well-designed graphics. The number pay-lines in this game are generous – as are those free spins and the multiplier! Overall Silver Fang gave this Wombat a wild time. Spin those reels and scoop up some lupine lolly!
