Lightning Box, a specialist slots developer in Australia, recently created a game called Silver Lion. Debuting exclusively at Leo Vegas online and mobile casino before being made generally available on the 7th of December, Silver Lion was designed using premium HTML5 for desktops, and standard HTML5 for mobile use. Lightning Box Games has struck similar exclusive and lucrative deals with other operators, such as the Norse-themed Viking Fire that went live on Bettson in November 2016.
A deal was also recently struck to roll out the Stellar Jackpots – Chilli Gold x2 title at UK operator’s bet365, Coral and Ladbrokes simultaneously.
The well-designed and executed theme of Silver Lion is an African safari adventure, and its gorgeous graphics should immerse players from their very first spin. The reels are set in the savannah at twilight, and their symbols include hyper-realistic hippos, zebras, meerkats and warrior tribesman bearing hide-covered shields. The highest-value regular symbol is, as one might expect, the Silver lion itself.
Even the lower-value playing card symbols have subtle animal print accents, and animal and drum sounds of Africa set the mood even more. The action plays out over 5 reels, and the payline structure creates 1024 ways to win. This is achieved by granting wins to any 3 symbols in a paying combination lining up in order from left to right on any of the reels, in any reel position. The image of a tree silhouetted in front of a setting sun serves as the game’s Wild Symbol, and can stand in for any regular icon to complete paying line-ups.
The games Scatter symbol takes the form of a red diamond and when 3, 4 or 5 are seen anywhere on the reels they trigger bonus Rounds of 8, 15 and 20 Free Spins respectively. These free spins are sure to reward players richly, and are typical of top quality slots.
Peter Causley, Managing Director and co-founder of Lightning Box, has said that the Silver Lion Slot game is the product of months of hard work put in by a dedicated team. He has also stated that players of Silver Lion will be entertained and engaged in equal measure, and so far those who have had the opportunity to play the game for themselves seem to agree. The time taken in developing and producing the high-quality games appears to have been a worthwhile investment.
