Head to the wilds of Africa in Silver Lioness 4x, a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win slot from Lightning Box Games. This slot safari comes with a potentially explosive feature round that awards up to 40 free spins with wild multipliers that can combine to send payouts rocketing by up to 36x. Play on all devices from between 40p and £200 per spin.

The design in Silver Lioness 4x is simply done – set against grasslands and a beautiful purple sky, the reels include lower value A to 9 playing cards as well as meerkats and zebras. The best standard symbols are the rhino and the woman which both pay 20, 80, 150 or 200 coins if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on adjacent reels.

The silver lioness is the wild – she appears on all reels and offers awards of up to 250 coins. Look out too for the tree which is also wild in the base game and can hit on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.

The main feature is the Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the diamond scatter on the same spin. As well as a payout equal to 2, 10 or 20 times your total stake, you’ll also receive 8, 15 or 20 free spins. However, it’s during this feature that things can get very interesting.

That’s largely down to the lion cub multiplier wilds. The 2x wild multiplier can land on reels 2, 3 and 4. The 3x multiplier on reels 3 and 4 and the 4x multiplier on reel 2 only.

If you land more than 1 cub wild in the same winning combination, the multiplier values are combined. Land the 3x multiplier on reels 3 and 4 plus the 4x wild on reel 2 then the payout will be boosted by a massive 36x! You can also retrigger the feature with 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters giving you 5, 8, 15 or 20 free spins respectively – that means there’s up to 40 free spins to be won in total.

The best action here comes via the Free Spins feature – you might have to wait a while to trigger it but the multipliers can quickly deliver a stampede of coins if luck is with you. The variance is in the medium to high range and Silver Lioness 4x offers you maximum wins of 1,063.5 times your stake on every free spin.

Silver Lioness 4x is very similar to Lightning Box Games’ Silver Lion. The visuals and gameplay are virtually identical give or take the odd tweak to the multipliers. If you enjoyed the original, then this sequel offers much of the same. I also suggest you try Playtech’s White King which focuses on the male species.
