Silk Road Slot by Aristocrat Gaming
The Silk Road Slot is a popular land based and online video slot game powered by Aristocrat Gaming. The theme of the game is based around the famous silk route which was an ancient Chinese trade route that led to the expansion of the Asian civilisation. The route derived its name from the high quality silk that was traded all across Asia. The backdrop to the game is a view of the desert where the route snakes its ways along the dunes. The graphics and high quality animation give the game a quality feel with clear and authentic sound effects accompanying each spin.
5 Reel Asian Theme Slot
The Silk Road slot features Aristocrat’s popular slot setup of 5 spinning reels with 243 ways to win. This gives players more chances to create winning combinations. At the start of each spin, players set the number of coins bet per win line. The more coins bet, the higher the payouts for any line win. The Game also includes a number of bonus features including a Wild symbol, Scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers. On the reels, the symbols are all based on the Asian culture and the production of silk on the trade route.
Some of the highest paying reel symbols in the Silk Road Slot include an ancient wine jug, a silk trade ship, a large palace, a silk moth, a roll of silk as well as a silk trader. For the lower paying symbols, the game employs the use of the popular high card symbols which have all been styled and designed to blend into the theme of the game.
Wild Multiplier Symbol
The Wild symbol in the Silk Road Slot is the image of the role of silk. The Wild symbol itself plays two important roles. For starters the Wild symbol acts as a substitute symbol able to substitute for any of the other non-bonus symbols to form a winning combination. Secondly the Wild symbol acts as a multiplier. If the Wild symbol lands on reel 2, the win is multiplied by three. If the Wild lands on reel 4, the win is then multiplied by 5x. If the Wild symbol happens to lands on reel 2 and 4 at the same time, the resultant win is multiplied by 15x.
Scatter Symbols and Free Spins
The Scatter symbol in the Silk Road slot is the moth. This is the only symbol in the game that can pay out from both right to left and left to right. It can also pay out no matter where it falls on the reels. The Scatter symbol is also the key to activating the free spins bonus round. To trigger the bonus round, players must land 3 or more Scatter moth symbols anywhere on the five reels. The more Scatters that trigger the bonus round, the more free spins are awarded. Just three Scatters will offer up 10 free spins while four scatters will up the number to 15. Finding all five Scatters across the reels will reward players with the maximum of 20 free spins and a healthy bet multiplier.
