Silver Lion

The Silver Lion online slot by Lightning Box Games gives you the chance to trek across the African savannah in search of Nature's most noble creature, the lion.

It's a five-reel slot that gives you 1,024 ways to win on every spin, and you can play it with bets of 40p to £280. The precious red diamond that's used as the scatter symbol can award up to twenty free spins with all wild wins multiplied by up to twenty-seven times, and you only need to land another two scatters to grab five extra free games. While you're playing the game, Silver Lion's soundtrack of animal noises will accompany your gameplay to give you an authentic safari experience.

More about the Software Provider

This slot is made by an Australian software company called Lightning Box Games which was established in 2004 by a group of mathematicians. Lightning Box Games makes jackpot slots like More Monkeys with Stellar Jackpots and Pyramid Bonanza, land-based slots which can be enjoyed in casinos across the UK, USA, Australia, Asia, and South America, online slots like Pixie Gold, Chilli Gold 2, and Viking Fire, and mobile slots such as Red Roo and Astro Cat. The company also does consultancy work and makes social games like Tiponi's Wilds, Dragon Palace, and Frogs ‘n' Flies.

Appearance and Sound Effects

The sound of birds and the loud roars of lions welcome you to the fascinating African savannah that inspires Silver Lion. A panoramic view of long grasses and trees under a blue-and-purple sky provides the game's backdrop, and vertical tribal spears divide each reel. Most of the symbols that feature in the slot are safari themed, and they include a tree in front of the setting sun, a lion, a red diamond, three meerkats, a hippo bathing in the river, a pair of zebras, and an African tribesman. There are also six playing card symbols that feature zebra stripes.

Bonuses and Special Features

The image of the tree against a vivid orange sunset is the wild symbol in Silver Lion, and it can help you pick up cash prizes by substituting for all symbols except the red diamond. The wild only appears on the middle three reels.

In the Silver Lion bonus game, you can win up to twenty free games initially and enjoy multipliers of up to x27. To unlock the bonus feature, you'll need to get three, four or five scatter symbols (the red diamond) anywhere on the reels. By doing so, you gain eight, fifteen or twenty free games respectively. Once the bonus is triggered, you only need to land two diamond scatters anywhere in view to claim another five free spins. In the bonus game, every wild symbol comes with a x2 or x3 multiplier, which when combined, can award multipliers of up to x27.
Because the game offers you 1,024 ways to win, you can create winning combos using three or more matching symbols starting from the left-hand side.


Silver Lion uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and offers you 1,024 ways to win rather than traditional paylines. It also has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.266%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
