The wombat says: As you may have guessed by the title Wombat Fans, this release from Microgaming- the people behind the Rhyming Reels Old King Cole slot- is all about that precious metal, silver. The other thing you’ll notice straight away, is that this slot is brought to you in 3D.
Yes, you know how you go and see a summer blockbuster only to find a pair of glasses are thrust into your hand by a spotty youth? Well, Microgaming have decided to cash in on the action!
But remember to put on your 3D glasses or you’ll have a cracking headache, and if you haven’t got any handy, you can switch back to 2D mode in the right hand corner of the screen.
Look and Feel
Sterling Silver slot is rather lacking in colours (not like the Luchadora slot game for example), and sadly because ALL the symbols are silver it’s quite hard to tell the difference between them on the reels. Well, it was for this short-sighted marsupial anyway…
That said, the reels have a proper ye olde bank vault feel to them with all the metal cogs, studs and levers – which is very cool. Listening to the soundtrack however, is like being transported to a big old rave, and quite what that has to do with a silver-themed slot, this wombat has absolutely no idea…We still have liked a few more colours in there – like the Giant Gems slot for example, but hey ho.
The slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines and your symbols on the reels include the standard playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K & A embossed in silver as your low value symbols, and single bar of silver, and a triple bar of silver as your high paying icons.
The Sterling Silver logo acts as the Wild in this game, and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter. When the Wild helps you to scoop a winning combo, you’ll receive a random bonus multiplier of anything from 2x to 10x. And not only that, it will also appear stacked on reel 3, too, to give you even bigger and better wins. Very nice indeed!
Scatters and Free Spins
The Scatter in Silver Screen slot is the Silver Coin, land 3x or more of these shiny little devils anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 and you will trigger off the Free Spins bonus. Here you’ll be given 15 free spins, plus a nice little extra cash win of 10x your total bet! Awesome! Plus all wins during the Free Spins round are doubled, and the feature can also be re-triggered from within this bonus by landing more of the Silver Coin Scatter symbols.
The 3D feature in Sterling Silver slot is a fun idea, but you really will need to steal some 3D specs from your local cinema next time you go to enjoy it. Otherwise, in spite some very nice bonus features, the slot looks very dull and grey which makes it pretty hard to concentrate on the spins. And spinning is what we are here to do Wombat Fans, isn’t it? Overall, this slot is a good game with a badly executed theme.
