Silk Road Slot Game Review
The word “Silk Road” has a long and complex history. Originally a crucial Arabian travel path, it rose in notoriety a few years back, with a website of the same name offering customers around the world the chance to buy drugs – and yes – BUY DRUGS – online. Founded by Ross Ulbricht, the site grew in popularity, and at its peak, it was estimated to be doing over £11 MILLION in sales each and every day!
Thankfully, the site was eventually shut down, although sadly, most people do now think of the website when they hear the word Silk Road. Aristocrat Gaming Technologies however have done away with this stereotype, and released a Video Slot all around the ORIGINIAL Silk Road!
It’s called Silk Road: The Video Slot, and it’s a dynamic game that offers players the chance to enjoy a unique gaming experience across Windows and Mac computers and laptops, and a variety of mobile devices.
Silk Road slot game’s structure is the popular 243-ways-to-win format, meaning there’s no pay lines – simply match a relevant symbol on each reel, and you’ll win – simple!
In terms of the symbols you’ll see, you’ll find a variety of game-specific icons, including a Bottle of Wine, Gates of a Trading Post, a Golden Ornamental Moth, Rolls of Luxurious Silk, and Chinese Waste. You’ll also see traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace).
The game benefits from a fairly standard free-spins round. The free-spins round is triggered by landing 3 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view, and this allows you to enter the free spins bonus. It’s possible to re-trigger the bonus by landing another 3 scatter symbols in view.
Silk Road: The Video Slot is one of the top games currently around, and because of this, it’s been made fully available to players using mobile phones and tablet devices.
If you’re using a device that uses the iOS, Android, or Windows platform, you’ll have no problems running the game from your mobile device whatsoever. Getting started couldn’t be easier – just open up the mobile game from your Internet browser, and you’ll be able to begin playing right away!
Pros: Silk Road: The Video Slot offers a pleasant gaming experience.
Cons: The graphics are a little dated, and could do with a “revamp”.
