Silver Lioness 4x is a slot by Lightning Box, the provider who brought you other classic animal slots like Panda Pow and this slot’s predecessor, Silver Lion. Silver Lioness 4x looks and plays very similarly to Silver Lion, but with the inclusion of a new Wild symbol during Free Spins, which, for some players, could make all the difference.
Let’s see how Silver Lioness 4x plays and why players might want to give this slot a shot.
Like the original slot, Silver Lioness 4x takes the classic African safari slot design and mixes it up, glazing the reels with blues and oranges as the dark evening sky meets the dry savannah grasses behind the reels. The slot’s soundtrack is quiet but for birdsong and other wild sounds of the plains, and symbols on the reels include various safari animals such as hippos, zebras, and meerkats.
Silver Lioness 4x is a way to win slot with 1024 ways to win, which means players land identical matching symbols on adjacent reels, from left to right, to win. This is a fun way to play, and it means that wins aren’t too hard to come by, even in the base game. The slot’s most valuable symbol is the silver lioness of the title, which pays out up to 250x the coin bet for five symbols – so watch out for her because she’ll net you some of the best wins of the game.
Silver Lioness 4x is all about the Free Spins, which can be won when players land three to five-diamond Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This will unlock between eight and 20 free spins, with more free spins up for grabs if players land more Scatters during the Free Spins round. Silver Lioness 4x brings a new addition to the Free Spins round, however, in the form of Wild Cubs symbols. These Wild Cubs symbols are only found in Free Spins, and they offer win multipliers of between 2x and 4x the win depending on which cubs fall. Land multiple cubs in a single win and enjoy up to 36x your win.
The return to player of Silver Lioness 4x is a somewhat paltry 95.69%, meaning that if players spend $100 on this slot, they might win back around $95.69, although obviously, most players will win a little more or less than this. It’s not a terrible RTP, but it doesn’t sell the slot because plenty of slots offer better returns than this.
Silver Lioness 4x is an improvement upon Silver Lion, for sure. The original slot was always lacking a particular something, and the addition of the Wild Cubs in this slot does make Free Spins that bit more exciting. However, it’s still a pretty simple slot with a below-average RTP, so it’s hard to sell this one. It’s worth a spin despite the RTP, but few players will love this slot enough to keep playing for years.
