Easy to Understand (10)
There are no complicated bonus features and therefore the rules are simple and straight forward.
Graphics & Sounds (10)
This is the area in which the slot game really excels. The graphics of the animals are realistic as is the snowy background. The background music has greater clarity than usually found in slot games. The animations are extremely realistic as well, in particular that of the Howling Wolf.
Theme and Concept (9)
The theme has been conceived and executed very well. The symbols and the special effects evoke the desolateness and eeriness of the winter landscape. However it is not a theme that will find universal support. Slot players would generally go for something more cheerful and colorful.
Game Features (9)
Silver Fang has most of the features prevalent in contemporary slot games. The wild symbol provides the largest fixed jackpot and in the free rounds appears as stacked wilds. The scatter symbol offers scatter payouts and also activates the free spins. Another exciting feature of the free spins is the 5 times multiplier. Hence when triggered the free spins round offers a bonanza. Players can take further risks by playing the Gamble Game. However there is no bonus round on the second screen and this will be sorely missed.
Betting Options (9)
All three betting options can be exercised in Silver Fang. The slot game offers up to 10 coins per line, which is more than adequate. The problem is with the low coin denominations. The maximum coin size is only 0.05. This is made up by the 50 paylines offered. Therefore the total bet range varies from 0.01 to 25.00.
This area is the weakest link in the Silver Fang slot game. To begin with there is no progressive jackpot, which is a disappointment. Unfortunately the fixed jackpots are poor as well. A payout of 1,000 coins at a maximum line bet of 0.50 results in a payout of only 500 credits.
