Silverback Gold™

Play Silverback Gold for real!

The Silverback Gold™ slot offers a maximum win of 45.000x your bet and introduces the best slot innovation of 2021. It was also NetEnt’s last game of 2021, a year that saw only 10 new games launched in total. This had all to do with the takeover of NetEnt by Evolution Group in December 2020. The year after the takeover was a quiet one when it comes to new NetEnt games, but an exciting one behind closed doors.

Fortunes will await you around every corner as you delve into the unknowns from our leafy world of adventure and exploration.

Under the wing of Evolution Group, NetEnt took the time to reinvent the wheel. The aim is to introduce new slot mechanics and slot innovations. The first results of NetEnt’s search for a new “slot soul” are visible in the Silverback Gold™ slot.

Silverback Gold Facts

Powerful innovation needs powerful slot theme

When you open the Silverback Gold™ slot at one of the respected NetEnt Casinos we selected carefully, you get to enjoy the first new slot innovation that NetEnt developed throughout 2021.

To present this new slot innovation to the world of iGaming, NetEnt decided it needed a strong and powerful slot theme to go with. In the spotlight, one of the strongest of the animal kingdom, the Silverback Gorilla.

Gorillas live in groups. These groups are known as troops. And each troop has an adult male, the leader, called silverback. It’s the distinctive patch of silver hair on the back that gives the leader Gorilla the name Silverback. Besides this, the Gorilla is typically more than 12 years old.

As a sort of Gorilla Godfather, the Silverback Gorilla is the centre of the troop’s attention. He makes all the decisions, mediates conflicts, and determines the movements of the group.

Animal kingdom classification is not a job for the faint-hearted, but there’s no doubt about the Silverback’s rang in his own group. He’s the leader, he’s powerful, and that’s what NetEnt is after with its newly invented slot innovations.

What is this new slot innovation?

When a developer picks the jungle to introduce their newest slot innovation with the Silverback Gorilla as the main character, it’s pretty clear you want to send a message into the world.

But what is it that deserves such a powerful theme? What makes the Silverback Gold™ slot the most innovative slot of 2021? What to expect when you get into the deepest of the jungle?

And what is it that can generate an immense win of up to 45.000 times your bet in one spin? What is this greatness we’re looking at here? And how do you get there from the moment you open the Silverback Gold™ slot?

Betting options

Before I get into the details about NetEnt’s best slot innovation of 2021, I prefer to pass the betting options first. To get to the winning bet, you need to take a coin value that you can easily afford. Only then, you can afford yourself enough spins to activate the Free spins feature.

So make sure you’re able to play lots of spins. Of course, you have a chance to activate the best slot feature within one spin, but it’s best to stay on the safe side. Think of the worst, like 100 spins to activate Free Spins.

With that in mind, you pick the best bet starting at 0.10 and with 100.00 as the maximum bet. There’s around 40 bets to choose from. So there’s always a bet that you’re comfortable with.

Silverback Gold™ slot main game

You picked your best bet and that you can easily afford, it’s time to get to the main game. During the main feature, you wait for the real action to take place.

There are a few things you must keep in mind when you play the Silverback Gold™ slot. This innovative slot offers high volatility. This simply means you won’t be bombed with winnings. Don’t worry right away, it’s normal. The whole idea of high volatility is that at a few points, you get excited with a super mega win that makes you fall off your chair.

This also means it can take a while before one of the lucrative slot features activates. You will have a 5×4 reels grid with an amazing 1,024 betways at your service. But yet it’s a matter of waiting until you activate those features you’re looking for. Either with:

-3+ Scatter symbols (Free Spins feature)
– or randomly (Silverback Attack feature)

Along the way, you will see nice wins with the help of Wild symbols. They substitute for all other symbols, except Scatters.

Silverback Attack feature

The Silverback Gold™ slot, it’s all about the symbol transformations during the Free Spins feature. That’s what this exciting innovative video slot is all about. And it completely changes the way Free Spins work.

But it’s not the only slot feature that will make your slot heart beat faster. There’s no way to predict when this slot feature activates. All we know is that it activates completely randomly during the main game, as well as the Free Spins feature.

If you are lucky enough to witness this majestic feature, you see 6 to 20 mighty Silverback symbols launch themselves onto the reels. This explosion of slot action can lead you to impressive wins!

Silverback Gold™ Free Spins Bonus Game

Free Spins feature bonus game

As often is the case with the NetEnt slots, Free Spins activate when three or more Scatters appear on the reels. How Free Spins start, mainly depends on the bonus game. Therefore, the bonus game takes place before the Free Spins feature.

During the Free Spins feature bonus game, only tokens land on the reels. You see what I mean after you see the Scatter symbols, involved in the activation, lock on the reels. Just to turn around for your first token values.

The higher the values of the tokens, the better. With a nice high value at the end of the bonus game, you benefit from the first symbol upgrades. One step closer to massive wins.

You will basically have three spins, decreasing with each spin. Unless a token appears on an empty spot. It first flips to reveal a value, but at the same time, the spin counter jumps back to 3.

The end of the bonus game arrives when the spins counter shows 0, when all positions are taken by coins, or when the total value of all coins totals 300 or more.

Free Spins feature

You take your tokens with a maximum of 300 to the Free spins feature. That’s when true slot excitement gets real. Depending on the activation, you activate either 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins.

3 Scatters: 10 Free Spins
4 Scatters: 15 Free Spins
5 Scatters: 20 Free Spins

Each Scatter on the reels during Free Spins awards additional Free Spins.

Silverback Gold™ Free Spins with symbol upgrades

Silverback Gold™ symbol upgrades

An impressive slot feature is about to take place, with your tokens being added to the Symbol Upgrade Meter. On this meter, you find all the symbols available in the Silverback Gold™ slot.

From the lower-paying bird and snake symbols, the mid-paying leopard and crocodile symbols to the high-paying gorilla symbols.

There’s only one symbol that surpasses the Silverback symbol. It’s the Golden Silverback. All symbols turn into the Golden Silverback symbol when the meter reaches the Golden Silverback after all symbols are upgraded to the Silverback symbol.

Upgrades take place in the following order:

  • 30 tokens upgrades Crocodile symbols
  • 60 tokens upgrades Leopard symbols
  • 120 tokens upgrades Snake symbols
  • 200 tokens upgrades Bird symbols
  • 300 tokens upgrades Silverback symbols

More tokens appear randomly on Silverback symbols and as soon as the collect meter reaches the next symbol, that symbol also turns into the high-paying Silverback symbol.

When you max out the meter, all the symbols will turn into Golden Silverback Symbols which is the highest paying symbol in the game!

Silverback Gold™ Buy Feature option

Silverback Gold™ Buy Feature option

Pay 100 times your bet, and you go straight to the Free Spins feature. You basically skip the main game. Although, I do want to emphasize that activating the Free Spins feature during the main game, is most of the time more economical.

However, the majority of the human species, are naturally impatient. Letting the reels do their thing, calmly waiting for the special feature to be activated, seems no option these days. Especially, with some countries putting a ban on the autoplay option, perfect to keep those reels running. But the Buy Feature option isn’t always available either. It really depends on the country you find yourself.

If available, and if you really can’t wait for the reels to generate 3+ Scatters, the Buy Feature option is the way to go. You activate 10 Free Spins after which you enjoy the best slot innovation of 2021!
