Silent Run Slots

This NetEnt designed slot isn’t one for the claustrophobic among you, as you’ll find yourself stuck in a metal cage under the sea. This might seem a little strange until I tell you that the metal cage is actually a submarine and the game will certainly remind you of the film “The Hunt for Red October”.

The graphics seem to show that you’re in the middle of the Second World War, as the submarines are joined by mines, torpedoes and depth charges. The game has two bonus features, each activated by landing the appropriate echo symbol on reel three – both of these are explosive!

  • How to Win on Silent Run

    The submarine, looking daunting under the sea with a blue glow, is the highest paying symbol, worth 1,000 coins for five in a row, while an even more imposing war ship is next at 750 coins. The torpedoes, the mines and the depth charges are next and have a top payout of 500, 350 and 250 coins respectively. These standard symbols are completed by the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A which have a top payout of between 60 and 150 coins.

    A dim light in a cage acts as the wild symbol and will substitute for every other symbol on the reels apart from the bonuses, ensuring that you’ll gain additional wins the other symbols in the base game. However, the best use of the wild symbols comes in the first bonus feature.

    Undersea Silent Run Bonus Features

    The first of the features is the ‘echo wild’ one. This feature is activated when you land the red radar symbol anywhere on reel three. First, this symbol itself will be an additional wild, while it will send out 3 sonar signals that will search out for other wilds (you’ll gain an additional 3 wilds randomly across the reels). Each time this bonus appears you’re almost guaranteed a payout as you’ll have a minimum of 4 wilds across the reels, with potentially more if wilds appeared on the initial spin.

    The second of the features is the ‘echo bonus’ game. Similarly to the echo wild, you’ll activate this by landing another radar symbol on reel, this time it is green however. Once again this will send out three sonars, this time aiming to locate torpedoes and you’ll be awarded between 2 and 5 torpedoes in total.

    You’ll then be taken to a screen where you’ll have 5 ships in your sights and your aim is to blow each of these up. You’ll pick the targets one at a time and when they explode you’ll be awarded a credit amount. The first torpedo will see a 1x multiplier attached, but each subsequent torpedo will see this number increase by 1, up to a maximum of 5x (if you do manage to be armed with all 5 torpedoes). Like any good pick-em round, the win amounts of the targets you don’t choose will also be revealed, so you’ll know if you made the right choices.

    Design and Setup

    This slot is atmospheric throughout, the combination of the dark visuals and the slightly haunting soundtrack just perfect in making you feel you’re in peril at all times. The title is in red with a star between the two words which points to a submarine from the Soviet Union, while the backdrop to the reels shows a sea scene just below the surface, with rays of light from the surface infiltrating the sea.

    Silent Run is a five reel slot with 25 win lines. You can opt for a coin value of between 1c and 50c, while also choosing a bet level of between 1 and 10, the combination of these giving you a total stake. Hitting Max Bet will set the bet level automatically to 10 and then spin the reels, while hitting spin will simply spin the reels at the chosen bet level.

    Overall Experience

    Silent Run is a very interesting slot that plays a little differently from other games. Yes, the base game is the same as you might find elsewhere, but a single scatter symbol to activate each of the features is certainly unique. The echo wild is a nice extra, although the echo bonus round is the one that really sets the pulses racing, as some extremely large wins can come your way, especially when those multipliers start to rise.
