A safari in Africa is among the most coveted destinations among adventurous travelers. Driving through vast national parks and getting a glimpse into the lives of wild animals is a big step above a visit to the zoo. Since safaris cost a pretty penny, not many of us can afford to go on one and we were therefore delighted to find Silver Lioness, a slot that takes you on a safari from the comfort of your own home.
This 5 reel slot with 1024 ways to win was created by Sidney-based development studio Lightning Box (brought to you by Microgaming) and is a beautiful mix of classic design and modern features. The volatility is on the high end of the spectrum, meaning that you have to be patiently waiting for wins, but when they hit, they’re higher than usual. The maximum win is 20,000 coins, which can bring you a nice budget, if you play with the maximum bet of $200.
Let us take you on a magical adventure in the African savannah and read all about this wild slot in our article below!
Silver Lioness is the successor of another Lightning Box slot, Silver Lion which also dealt with the theme of rare white lions and African safaris. We’re all familiar with the white tigers and lions that were a part of Siegfried and Roy’s magic show. Those two have, however not only used the animals for entertainment but have also been breeding them since 1982 and are set on preserving the white tigers and lions of Timbavati for prosperity.
White lions don’t have albinism since they don’t have red eyes. Instead the white fur is inherited via a recessive gene mutation. Since they’re easier to spot for predators, they have a lower chance of survival in the wild. They do, however look majestic and have long been a source of fascination for many, which makes them a fabulous protagonist for Silver Lioness.
They’re rare and a little mysterious and that is exactly what comes across in the slot with the beautifully enigmatic light effects in the background of both, the slot itself and the symbols on the reels.
This slot comes with 5 reels and 1024 ways to win. This means, there aren’t any paylines, but you’ll get a winning combination, if any matching symbols land on adjacent reels. The direction also doesn’t matter, since the slot pays out from the left and from the right.
The high paying symbols are an Africal tribal woman, a hippopotamus, zebras and meercats, while the low paying symbols come in the form of colorful striped card values. Here it’s 9, 10, J, Q, K and A in particular.
The wild symbol in the base game is represented by a beautiful huge tree against a sunset and it only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. If it lands, it will substitute for any other symbol except the bonus symbol to create winning combinations.

Payouts and Wagering Limits
You can spin the reels in Silver Lioness for as little as $0.40, but if you’re looking for a really wild payday, you might want to crank it up to the maximum amount of $200 per spin. The volatility of this slot is high, which means that there’re less frequent winning combination, but if one hits, the payout will be higher than usual.
The most disappointing thing about Silver Lioness has the be the fairly low RTP of 95.69%. The average RTP is 96% and there’re very few modern video slots that are below this threshold. The maximum win is 20,000 coins, which could equal a pretty penny if you spun your reels with the maximum betting amount.
Silver Lioness might be geared towards experienced players, with its high volatility and the low RTP, but the exciting free spin feature and the breathtaking theme, will make it fun for newbies as well.
After Silver Lion, Lightning Box managed to create an equally compelling successor with Silver Lioness. The safari theme speaks to a lot of players and we’re always up for a trip into the South African wild.
If you enjoy majestic creatures and nature-themed slots, you don’t have to look any further. Let this slot take you on a journey into the savannah and enjoy the view. The light effects and symbols are beautifully drawn and the free spin feature with the multiplier wilds will keep you on the edge of your seat.
