As online slots fans we know we’re never too far away from an animal-themed game; there are loads of them about and Microgaming – the company responsible for Silver Fang – is accountable for a fair number of them. We’re not sure if there’s a connection or not but Japanese anime contains a story about a hunting dog called Silver Fang so perhaps that’s the inspiration behind this game.
Silver Fang contains a massive fifty paylines over five reels and in truth this is a fairly basic-looking slot; the background to the reels is a snowy, tree-dotted landscape with a moonlit sky in the distance.
The there main symbols are some worried-looking elk, the wolf himself and the game’s logo; 10, J, Q, K and A are the low value symbols and then there are the Howling Wolf wild and the paw print scatter symbol.
Howling Wolf Wild
During the base game the wild symbol acts as a normal wild but during the free spins feature it becomes stacked; this means that they can sit on top of one another on the reels and provide extra opportunities for creating winning combinations.
Silver Fang offers us a pretty generous number of free spins; land three or more of the paw print scatter symbols and you’ll receive 15 spins. Any wins during this feature will be multiplied by a hefty 5x which can make this a profitable round indeed.
More spins can be re-triggered by landing three more scatters during this round.
You have the ability to gamble your most recent win by clicking the ‘Gamble’ button underneath the reels. Now you will play a card prediction game during which picking the correct colour will double your money and the correct suit will quadruple it. Five wins in a row is the most you are allowed but as soon as you lose you’re dumped back to the base game with nowt.
Silver Fang Online Slot Playing Tips
Take care with the gamble feature; it’s tempting to try and go for five wins in a row but that’s a very tall order; if you’re lucky enough to pick correctly twice, consider collecting you winnings. Constant use of this feature will ensure you win very little money.
This is a fairly basic slot with some passable graphics and animations; the wolf howls when you land a winning combo are a nice touch.
