Sterling Silver 3D
Sterling Silver 3D never really took off for Microgaming, despite being released with much fanfare in 2011 as the first 3D online slot game.
Basically the key reason it never took off was not many people actually owned or own a pair of 3D glasses — those who did or do would love this game.
While entire 3D casinos, such as SlotsMillion.com, are going to soon be the norm, Sterling 3D provided us with a glimpse of what virtual reality might look like in online casino gaming.
Best online casinos with Sterling Silver 3D
Microgaming is the biggest online casino software provider in the world, but only limited casinos have Sterling Silver as a game, largely because it is hard to access without 3D goggles. At the time of writing the following online casinos all had the title:
Sterling Silver 3D glasses
As online slots games go, this one is completely different from anything before and in order to play it you must make use of special glasses. Once you put on 3D glasses the screen in front of you will literally pop out at you and become a whole new game to play. All of the symbols in Sterling Silver 3D are silver and based on a dark background this makes for a visually appealing experience.
Gameplay on Sterling Silver
Sterling Silver 3D has five reels and 25 paylines. Bets can range from $0.01 up to $0.25 in coin size and you can choose how many coins you place per payline.
As with many of the online slots games from Microgaming you can play Sterling Silver 3D for fun or practice before placing real money bets which gives you a chance to get to know the game.
The Sterling Silver logo is wild and appears stacked on the third reel to offer substitute options. It also offers a random multiplier, anywhere from 2x to 10x the coin bet placed.
Free spins and features
The 3D scatter symbol has scatter written over it and this offers multiplying wins in addition to being the key to the free spins game.
Three or more of the scatter symbols randomly on your screen will award you 15 free spins and during the free spins all winnings are doubled.
Many Microgaming online slots games offer an extra feature which is known as the gamble feature; Sterling Silver 3D also offers this feature.
You can opt for the gamble feature after any winning spin and if you do you are taken to a new screen where you are given the choice between colors of cards to be turned over or suits of cards.
If you choose the color option you can potentially double your winning bet and if you choose the suit option you can quadruple your winning bet. But be aware that if you guess incorrectly you can lose all of the winnings for that spin.
