Silent Run is a military battle-inspired slot game, brought to us by NetEnt. It has five reels and 25 paylines, with bets starting at just 25p a spin. With submarines and battleships poised on the reels, this game means business, and there are all kinds of missiles, which can be used to help you boost your winnings. Look out for radars and wilds on the reels; they are the gateways to bigger wins in the Silent Run slot game.
This slot is unique in its theme, that is certain. It’s not often you come across a marine-battle-themed slot game, is it? It’s a good job really, as we’ve got all that we could want from a battleship game right here in the Silent Run slot. We’re rolling back the years to World War II on the Pacific Ocean when submarines hunted enemy ships.
Ready Your Aim
In this game, all of the 25 paylines are fixed in place. All of them will be in play with each spin of the reels.
You have the power to choose the value of your stake for each spin you play, by adjusting the coin value and the bet level.
The coin value starts at 1p and can be increased up to a maximum of 50p. Bear in mind that these are the bets for each payline, so whichever value you choose will be multiplied by 25.
Bet level is equivalent to the number of coins you play against each line, between one and 10. It is usually automatically set to one, but you can use the buttons either side to change it. The bet level is multiplied by your coin bet to create your total bet, so make sure that you confirm the total bet before you start playing.
You should be able to see your total bet beneath the spin button. If you’re happy with it, you can get spinning.
Value of the Weapons
You will need to match three or more of the same symbols on a payline in order to create a winning line, and the biggest prizes will come when you land five of a kind all the way along a payline.
The submarine holds the most value in this ocean battle. Align five of these submarines and you could win up to 1000 times your line bet. Five of the battleships along a payline could award you up to 750 times the bet line amount.
There are also a few different missiles which are used in this battle and hold their own values, too. The torpedoes have payouts of up to 500 times your line bet amount, and the underwater bombs and cylindrical missiles are worth up to 350 and 250 times your line bet respectively.
As well as this fighting talk, we’ve also got some lower-value card symbols in the mix. From 10 through to Ace, you could be looking at 60 to 150 times your line bet for a five-card match.
NetEnt has spoiled us with four special features to ramp up the action onboard these battleships.
Spot a radar on the middle reel and you will activate the bonus game.
The radar symbol will send out three sonar symbols, which will search the reels for torpedoes. The number of torpedoes found will be between two and five.
After you have collected the torpedoes, the control is then in your hands.
Choose an enemy ship, take aim and fire each of the torpedoes you collected.
Your prizes will be revealed as you fire at the enemy ships. Each ship has a different bonus amount behind it, and each torpedo will hold its own multiplier.
The multipliers will be applied to the revealed wins for your prize fund.
Wild & Echo Wild
A lightbulb onboard the vessel is the wild in the Silent Run slot. It can substitute for any of the standard symbols to help you create winning combos.
There is also the echo wild, an orange radar, which can land on reel three. This will send out three sonar symbols and inspect the reels for any hidden wilds.
Silent Run Slot Gameplay
Unique in theme and within its bonus features, too, the Silent Run slot is one of a kind. It’s not often we come across military-themed slots, but this one is well-executed and interesting to play.
If you’ve ever wondered what a submarine sounded like, then crank up the volume and you’ll head the roar through the ocean while you play. It’s quite an ominous sound, so it fits perfectly with the WWII battle theme.
This Silent Run slot is not for the faint-hearted; not everyone likes spinning with missiles or watching explosions, so it comes down to personal slot preference here. We are big fans of the multiple bonus features, though.
RTP of this slot is 96.1%
