Classic slots often have certain motifs that you will see over and over again, and it's not all that often that you find a three-reel game that uses typical motifs in a way that is fresh and that provides a somewhat different style of gameplay. That's what you get with Silver Spurs by Galewind, and they've put a few different things together to smooth out some of the volatility that comes along with the fact that this is a progressive jackpot slot. Overall, this is a game that stands out a bit from other classic slots because it's obviously gameplay-based, as you will see from how its format and pay structure.

Game Layout

At first glance, this slot looks pretty much like every other classic slot you could imagine. However, past that first look, you'll see a number of things that change up the gameplay. It has three reels and three rows, which is pretty standard, but it also has nine paylines, which is not common for a classic slot at all. You can bet on up to nine paylines, though we suggest you always play with nine since it's the only way to qualify for the progressive.

There are five different bet sizes based on five different sizes of coins. You can wager $0.10, $0.25, $1, $5 or $10 per payline, and the progressive jackpot will get bigger or smaller based on which size wager you make. This helps to keep things fair so that there are equitable contributions to the major jackpot from players at all different stakes.

Progressive Jackpot

The silver sheriff's badge, which is where the name Silver Spurs kind of comes from, is the key to the progressive and the other top payouts in the game. Three of a kind will normally get you a win worth 800x. However, if this three of a kind happens on the ninth payline when it's activated, then you will be given a progressive jackpot win that's tied to your bet size instead. The idea here is that you'll need to have all nine paylines activated to be able to hit the jackpot in the first place, and that's a very important part of keeping the highest RTP possible in this game.

Lucky Seven Wins and Payouts

Most of your important, non-jackpot wins will be the result of the set of lucky seven symbols. Yellow, blue, green and red lucky sevens show up on the reels, and they can give you a range of different mid-range and low payouts. Three of the red lucky seven gives you a sizable 100x win, but you can also earn 80x for five of the blue ones. Five green lucky sevens still pays out a respectable 60x, and you can earn 40x for five of the yellow ones.

To help give you more frequent, smaller wins, there is also a payout for getting any three lucky sevens that do not match up of the same color. Any three lucky sevens that don't all match up will pay 3x, which is cool because you can win that on multiple paylines as well.

Bar Symbols and Low-End Pays

The set of single, double and triple bar symbols are also pretty important, and they will help to keep your bankroll afloat while you shoot for the big progressive jackpot. Three of the triple bar is good for 30x payout. The prize for three of the double bar is 20x, and three of the single bar pays players 10x. Much like the lucky sevens, players can run any three bars, even if none of them match up, for a 1x win that helps to keep you pushing along in this game. It's critical for a progressive slot to do things to smooth out the volatility when it makes sense, and that's exactly what Galewind has done with the mismatch payouts for any three sevens or bars that aren't all the same.

Our Thoughts

Classic slots often take a bit of a backseat to five-reel games, and it's because the gameplay for one is often the gameplay for most. Galewind has done a great job with making Silver Spurs play a lot differently than many classic slots by creating a balance between a high-volatility experience and a number of ways to win small and medium pays. This helps to create a fun experience that doesn't seem like just one big long grind to try to hit a jackpot, and that's what makes it really have an advantage against a lot of three-reel progressives in the genre. Because of that, we have no problem with suggesting that players take a look at this game, even if they typically prefer video slots.
