When the holidays roll around it’s a lot of fun to start playing holiday themed games. Silver Bells is one of the games that caught my eye while looking for options to take advantage of, and it’s actually a halfway decent slot. This slot game from Nuworks offers a good mix of style, payouts and bonus features for a solid holiday-themed slot experience. I was taken by the style of the slot and its realistic symbols and beautiful wrapping paper and light backdrop that really sets the mood for the attractive holiday theme.
Silver Bells has a total of 30 paylines, and you are pretty limited to the wager amount that you can put into place as you begin playing. At the low end you are free to wager as little as $0.01 per line for a total bet of $0.30 per spin, which many players can manage without a problem. At the high end you can only wager up to $1.00 per line, which amounts to $30.00 at the most. That’s not a whole lot of cash and certainly not something to get very excited about. If you’re a high roller you might be annoyed at the low maximum wager cap while playing Silver Bells, and that’s the thing that will keep some players away, though it isn’t an issue if you don’t routinely wager more than $30.00 per spin.
It’s possible to adjust the speed of this slot game so that you have complete control over how fast those reels turn. You can go from a leisurely pace, to a moderate pace where animations only last a moment, to a rapid pace where the animations stop almost as soon as they begin. The speed that you go with really determines how quickly you can move through rounds, and you’ll find yourself turning the speed up and down depending on your mood. It’s a nice feature to have, and we liked playing on the normal speed most of the time to get the most out of the game.
The most exciting feature of Silver Bells by far is the free spin bonus. This bonus will give you up to 75 free spins with triple payouts. To trigger the bonus you need three or more of the scattered bell symbols. Get them and you’ll get the free spin round rolling. If you manage to trigger your free spin round without using any wilds, the number of free spins is doubled and you end up with as many as 150 free spins. There are few other free spin bonus rounds that can provide that number of free spins, and it’s possible to win massive amounts of cash in Silver Bells for that very reason.
There are two different progressive jackpots in Silver Bells that you can trigger while playing if you’re lucky enough. Either one of the jackpots can be triggered at any time, but they pay out after a spin. You can unlock these jackpots during a winning or losing round and whether or not you get a winning symbol combination has no effect on the jackpot for this slot game.
Silver Bells is a slot game that doesn’t really stand out in any way, but it’s still a pretty nice option for gamblers looking for a fun holiday themed game. It’s nice to look at, the symbols look pretty realistic, there are a few different bonus features for you to unlock, and there are plenty of options to take advantage of. It’s the type of slot game that can grow on you, and that’s why it’s worth testing out at least once.
