The 2015-founded gaming studio in Essington that has grown into a leading developer in the UK under Roy Howell’s supervision has announced the launch of a fresh title.
While its theme might have been explored in the past by other developers, Live 5’s fresh The Silk Road slot release does a good job of encapsulating the mysticism of the iconic trail using top graphics, an excellent win potential, and loads of Free Spins and other features.
Last October, the studio announced a partnership with 888casino aimed at providing the operator with its innovative slots.

Three Types of Free Spins Bonuses: Arabia Spins, Persia Spins, and China Spins
Known for its focus on delivering innovative, top-quality entertainment to players across multiple platforms, Live 5 has once again created a game that incorporates plenty of exciting features meant to keep the action going on the 20 fixed win lines.
The soundtrack has been cleverly chosen, making players feel like they have hopped on a camel and started riding through the sandy lands with the goal of reaching the hidden treasures waiting at the destination.
To score a win, players must land two, three, four, or five identical symbols starting, from left to right. As they explore the nicely designed sand dunes and plains, they can also come across three types of Free Spins bonuses. Each of them features a unique reward to make the slot even more fun.
In order to unlock the Free Spins, a minimum of three Free Spins symbols must be seen on the grid. This will automatically bring players 10 Free Spins. It is also possible to collect the coins that are seen landing on the reels while engaged in the base game to move toward the Silk Road and eventually reach the Free Games: Arabia Spins, Persia Spins, and China Spins.
The Arabia Spins Free Game features a win multiplier at the start of the game which is applied to all upcoming wins. During the Persia Free Spins, players get to enjoy the benefits of Expanding Wilds. Finally, the China Spins Free Game includes a Dragon Symbol Multiplier that can reach up to 100x.
The game’s Return to Player rate has been set between 92% and 94% while the high volatility adds to the feeling of walking the dangerous trail known for bringing together important trade routes across Europe and Asia.
The game is available in more than 30 languages for global players in all parts of the world. It has been given the green light for launch in the UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Malta, and Sweden.
The company’s chief executive officer, Lloyd Butler, spoke about the game’s promise to carry players “on an adventure like no other.” Butler, who called the game a “strong addition” to their continuously expanding portfolio, also explained that the base game was meant to build “excitement and anticipation” as players are gradually watching the coins land and bring them closer to the three bonuses.
In May, Live 5 launched Sheba Lightning Lines, a slot that carries players to Ancient Egypt. At the end of 2022, Live 5 inked a branded slot deal with the popular online gaming operator William Hill.
