With a name like Silver Bullet, Dracula and vampires immediately come into mind, whereby the silver bullet is the dreaded enemy of these creatures. But this game has nothing to do with Dracula, or even blood-sucking vampires. It is a game more like "Hi-oh Silver!", or better known as The Lone Ranger...but the hero Ranger has somehow gone M.I.A...that's Missing In Action! Hehehe. He left his trusty horse behind to play its role whilst he himself makes a disappearance for somewhere else. Eh?! Wait a minute...that horse doesn't even look like The Lone Ranger's Silver. It's just another common brown horse! So nothing to do with The Lone Ranger after all.
Anyway, Silver Bullet is a 9-paylines 5-reels slot game, reminiscence of slot games from decades ago! A simple looking game with a simple game play, with none of those free spins or bonus feature games to hunt or look out for. What you see is what you get. Nothing more nothing less. The only difference is that you have to look at it from both left-to-right and right-to-left directions, because this game pays both ways. If you so happened to get two wins on the same payline though, then only the highest win would be paid. There are no alphanumerical symbols being used, except for a number 7, all symbols being images of normal things you would see in those cowboy days. Things like horses, dollar notes, horseshoes, pipes (the tobacco kind), wagon wheels, cowboy hats, liquor bottles, number 7 (probably for Lucky 7), bombs and finally barrels. Cash prizes for 5-of-a-kinds start with 100x the line bet for the horse and up to 500x the line bet for the black bomb. The barrel is the highest paying symbol at 10,000x the line bet, similar to 5 wilds payout in other slot games. In Silver Bullet however, the wild symbol, which is the Sheriff's badge, does not carry any value nor does it double up any wins from it. It merely create wins by substituting for any other symbol, including the scatter symbol, the pistol. 5 scatters pays 100x the total bet.
In play, the game spins and stops very quickly, being just 9 liners. Wins are highlighted with a black boxy outline, making it very easy on the eyes to see the wins. The images on a white reel background are very easy to differentiate too. The game play is not that bad at all. Wins can come easily, either from the left or from the right, but scatters need to be in sequence from either reel 1 or reel 5 to make a win. In fact, it isn't a scatter at all because it is just like any other symbol. Scatters should be paid for appearing anywhere on the reels, not needing to be in sequence. Probably a slip-up by the game designers! Hehehe. Is it possible to get those 5 barrels on a payline? Yes, it is. I have not won it but I have seen others getting it. Overall, Silver Bullet is a playable game, entertaining to a certain extent, until you start yearning for free spins and bonus games. Then it's time to switch over from cowboy days to super heroes days! :D
