A wild wolf slot theme, this Silver Fang mobile slot will take you into the dead of winter as you chase those big free spins and 5x multipliers for any hope of making a killing.
Microgaming sure know how to make out-doorsy casino games look good. Probably on the same level in terms of graphic of sounds as the soaring Eagles Wings and the fresh Alaskan Fishing, you can practically feel your breath ice up as you open this tablet casino / iPad slot.
Because make no mistake, though Silver Fang mobile slot works equally well on the smaller Android screens and iPhones, it’s in the bigger screens that this Microgaming slot game starts howling at the moon and you appreciate the finer details in the design and sounds.
Then, you start playing and notice the one big flaw.
This is a low variance slot machine. That means that about 40% of the time you are going to get a win, but it won’t be very big. During the base game, our highest wins tended to be about 5 times our bet.
This isn’t the flaw in the game per say. We like it when our budget stays steady at the very least. Yet it didn’t get our heart racing you know? Silver Fang slot game may look wild, but it’s actually pretty tame. Meaning that if you don’t catch those free spins fairly quickly, you may stay frozen in a land of icy boredom.
And then the free spins bonus game hits and we changed our tune, or howled at the moon. Whichever metaphor you prefer.
Because here hides a potential 5000x your bet max win. It’s like Microgaming decided to put all the action in Silver Fang video slot during the free spins and forget the base game.
Chances are, if this features hits fairly frequently for you, you’ll walk away with about 30x to 50x your bet. However, if you find yourself waiting for the free spins for a while… and then you get them… and those stacked wilds line up just right…
Our biggest win was 156x our bet. We’ve had a couple of 100x our bet to know it’s not a complete fluke and obviously, the limit is much, much higher.
Ultimately this machine save the best for its main feature, allowing you to play for longer but still giving you hope for that big kill.

Wilds: The wolf howling at the full moon is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatters. No multiplier, but it does come stacked during the free spin round.
Scatters & Free Spins: The scatters themselves give decent returns on their own. 3 will give you 5x your bet, 4 will give you 20x your bet and 5 will give you a very nice 50x your bet. So there's that.
However, the main attraction is the 15 free spins you'll get if you hit 3 or more scatters. Actually the really, really main attraction is the 5x multiplier. And then there's the wonderful side show of the stacked wilds.
Basically, put them all together and you get a most wonderful bonus feature.
If only you could be guaranteed more action during the base games, Silver Fang mobile slot would have gotten one more star.
As it stands it's a fun little game for conservative players who don't like risk, but still enjoy the hope of a big win.
However, if you don't mind slightly lesser graphics, but still want stacked wilds and bigger wins, read our Wolf Run slot review as an alternative.
