Game Rules

Silver Bullet

5-Reel, 9-Line SlotLines Pay Both Ways!

Silver Bullet is an easy to play online slot game, featuring a Progressive Jackpot side bet called Dollar Ball. The vintage feel and design will put players in mind of the classic Vegas slots, something which is sure to also attract fans of traditional casino games like online roulette, blackjack and baccarat.

How to Play:

  • Use the +/- buttons on the right-hand side of the screen to set the Coin Value.
  • Click Bet One to add a coin to the bet and activate another payline. You can bet nine coins (activating all nine paylines) with each spin.
  • When you have selected your bets, click Spin to play the game. You can also spin the reels using Bet Max; this will play the slot with the maximum of nine coins and paylines.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as Coin Value (Line Bet) x Number of Paylines (Coins).
  • A winning spin will be clearly highlighted on the reels. All payouts are shown on the Paytable, which can be accessed by clicking the button on the bottom left of the screen.


Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. The paylines in Silver Bullet slot work from right to left and left to right. Each time you select Bet One you will add another payline to the bet.

Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount bet on a single payline (equal to one coin), whereas the Total Bet is the total amount bet on all active paylines added up.


The Paytable shows all possible payouts for the game. To calculate the value of a Line Win, take the appropriate figure from the Paytable and multiply by the Line Bet (Coin Value). For Scatter Wins, multiply by the Total Bet.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol (Sheriff’s Badge) can substitute for all other symbols on a payline (except Scatter) to form the best possible Line Win.

If one or more Wild Symbols substitutes in a Line Win, the payout will be doubled.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol (Revolver) does not need to fall on any payline to payout. If you land two or more on consecutive reels (starting on Reel 1 or 5) you will earn a payout (x Total Bet).

Dollar Ball:

Dollar Ball is a lottery style side bet game. It is completely independent from the Silver Bullet slot, in that you do not need a winning result in the slot to win on Dollar Ball.

The objective of Dollar Ball is to pick five numbers (from 49) and match them to the random numbers drawn. You will win a payout if you match just one number. Matching five numbers to the drawn numbers will award the Progressive Jackpot.

Dollar Ball costs £1 to play.

A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a small percentage from each player’s wagers. The idea is that it will grow and grow until one player wins the Jackpot. The casino will also provide a base amount to the fund; this is called a seed.

Please note: the software ensures that two players cannot win the Progressive Jackpot simultaneously. If two players win the Jackpot in the quick succession, the first player will win the Progressive Jackpot as displayed, whereas the other player will win the seed amount.

To Play Dollar Ball:

  • The Dollar Ball Menu is located on the top right-hand side of the screen. Click Enable to open up the Dollar Ball Menu. Click on your 5 numbers to select them, or click the Random Pick option to have them randomly selected.
  • When you have selected your numbers, click Activate. Doing this will close the Dollar Ball Menu and confirm your selections. Your selections will be displayed along the top of the screen.
  • The next time you spin the reels in the Silver Bullet slot, Dollar Ball will start. The Dollar Ball numbers will appear along the top of the screen when the reels have finished spinning. Any winning selections will be highlighted and paid into your balance.
  • Dollar Ball has a separate Paytable, which is located on the top right of the main Paytable screen. Please note: the payouts shown are multiplied by the Dollar Ball stake.
  • You can change the Dollar Ball numbers for every spin or keep the same numbers.

Please note: when you spin the reels again on Silver Bullet slot, you will be automatically entered into the Dollar Ball game again – and the £1 entry cost deducted from your balance – unless you click the Disable button on the top right-hand of the screen.

The Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot is awarded and funded as follows:

Seed (base amount provided by the casino to fund Jackpot) = 10,000 x bet.

Contribution rate (percentage of each bet used to fund Jackpot) = 10% of each bet.

Win Condition (result needed to win Jackpot) = match 5 balls to the 5 drawn balls.

Win requirement (how to be eligible for the jackpot) = play the Dollar Ball game (£1).

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Silver Bullet slot is 96.84%.
