Silent Movie is an IGT slot game with 5 reels and 30 paylines. Playable from 30p to £90 a spin across desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you are taken back in time to the good old days of early cinema. The graphics are purely black and white which takes you back to the Gilded Age of timeless cinema.
Symbols on the reels include cinema tickets, director chairs, cinema reels and director slate boards – you will also see various characters who are meant to represent characters from classic films. When it comes to features, it benefits from 4 free spins features which are each based on classic screen gems.
Look out for the cinema tickets symbol which is the bonus symbol – 2 of these and 1 of 4 other bonus symbols will trigger 1 of the 4 free spins features. When you trigger any feature, you will also get a small gift of 3 times your stake – every little helps.
You are taken to the theatre lobby to pick 1 of the 3 ticket booths – you will then enjoy a private screening of the respective bonus feature. With each feature, you can retrigger multiple times with up to 250 free spins available on each of the 4 free spins features.
You have the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Bonus feature where you step into the devious mind of Dr. Jekyll who concocts a potion – this is played when you get 2 cinema tickets symbols (on reels 2 and 3) and 1 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde symbol (on reel 4). You will begin with 3 to 6 win free spins where all wins accumulated are subject to a 3x multiplier. These are win spins meaning that you will have a guaranteed winner on up to 6 spins. Look out for more cinema tickets bonus symbols which can give you additional free spins.
The A Trip to the Moon Bonus feature takes you on a wild journey and is played when you get 2 cinema tickets bonus symbols (on reels 2 and 3) and the A Trip to the Moon bonus symbol (on reel 4). You are rewarded with between 10 and 15 free spins – simply, extra wild symbols are added to the reels. Again, 3 bonus symbols will trigger extra free spins.
The A Muddy Romance Bonus feature is based on leading lady Mabel who’s romantic life is a scattered mess – it’s activated when you get 1 A Muddy Romance symbol (on reel 4) with 2 cinema tickets bonus symbols (on reels 2 and 3) – here you will receive between 6 and 12 free spins with extra scatter wins. 3 bonus symbols during the feature will give you more free spins.
Finally, you have the Keystone Kops Bonus feature is about coppers who double the bonus multiplier (late of course) and is played when you get 2 cinema tickets bonus symbols (on reels 2 and 3) and 1 Keystone Kops symbols (on reel 4). You will receive 10 free spins with a multiplier ranging from 2x to 5x. The multiplier then doubles between 4x to 10x for the last 5 free spins. You can also trigger 10 more free spins for 3 cinema tickets bonus symbols during the feature.
I quite like Silent Movie – graphically it looks fantastic and is different to anything else around. In terms of bonus features, I’ve had my biggest wins on the Keystone Kops Bonus feature with a couple of lucky combinations in the last 5 free spins (with a massive 10x multiplier).
Variance wise, I consider it to be in the middle somewhere. If you like your movies with an innovative twist, a night in with Silent Movie is just what you need.
