Silverback Gold Slot Overview

Silverback Gold is a new casino slot from NetEnt where we wander into the dense and deep jungle in search of the golden silverbacks. It will be an intense safari, where these powerful beasts can result in gigantic wins. When the gorillas become adults, usually around 12 years old, they start to develop silver sections of hair on their backs, hence their name. A silverback is thus a full-grown gorilla that can weigh up to 270 kg and is very strong and protective of its group, a behavior seen in Kerchak in the Tarzan novel, among others. But by playing your cards right, you can have a very successful stay in this tropical location. We have previously taken part in a jungle adventure with gorillas from NetEnt, where within their Gorilla Kingdom we were treated to a very lucrative bonus game. Let's dive into this slot and find out what it takes to get the big wins this time.

Silverback Gold Slot Conclusion

This is certainly a game provider that has been in the game for a long time, and it shows, as they once again let us in on a slot with cleverly crafted features. Those players familiar with their previous Gorilla Kingdom will very quickly see many similarities with this version. It's a slot that's had a polishing of the symbols, effects, and the design, where you quickly get into a good mood. It's a safari that we get to take part in where there are big chances of seeing a lot of silverbacks within both the base and bonus game. During the spins within the base game, you can land a nice mix of animal symbols and royals, where they pay very well. During the spins you can also land wild symbols that make it possible to create more winning combinations and within the free spins feature, all wild symbols that land will receive a multiplier of 2X or 3X. It is a slot filled with delightful surprises and randomly during the spins within the base and bonus game, the Silverback Attack feature can be activated. Then a random amount of 6 to 20 silverback symbols will land on the reels, which can result in festive wins.

Landing 3 or more scatter symbols activates the Bonus Game, which is a gateway to the Free Spins feature. Within this bonus game, you have the opportunity to collect tokens through a very lucrative respins feature. By collecting tokens, you can then begin the Free Spins feature with a solid collection that facilitates the winning of big prizes. By collecting different amounts, the higher paying symbols will gradually be replaced by silverback symbols and once you have collected 300 tokens, all silverback symbols will become golden silverback symbols. This results in big winning combinations which, with multiplier wilds, make everything even better.

There is a good size on the RTP used in this slot, where many choose to have different sized RTPs, NetEnt instead has chosen a standard RTP. It is a good size on the different bet sizes used, where it suits the different player types well. Much is the same in this slot compared to Gorilla Kingdom, but like how gorillas age and reach their mighty final stage, silverback, they have given this slot a serious polished upgraded stage as well.
