IGT SILENT MOVIE SLOT REVIEW
From the name, we can already tell that this will be an interesting video slot. The black and white theme fits quite nicely, while also being easy on the eyes. IGT tried to break the mold with Silent Movie, a vintage slot released on June 1st, 2016 and playable on both mobile and PC devices.
Such a classic slot could only come with a classic setup, which means Silent Movie features 5 reels and 30 paylines. It’s playable from as little as 30 cents to $90 and you can give it a try right here for free or bet real money on it in SlotsMate’s Real Money Slots section.
HOW TO PLAY THE SILENT MOVIE SLOT
Before you start jazzin’ up the reels, you must know that the paylines cannot be changed and the RTP is just a bit over 96%. New players might be put off by the black and white graphics but they shouldn’t worry about that - the bonus symbols come with plenty of colorful wins.
You’ll find director chairs, movie reels and even slate boards on the low-paying side, while several famous old movie characters are featured on the high-paying spectrum. There are also several special symbols, but we’ll detail those in the features that follow.
SILENT MOVIE SLOT FEATURES
- Wild symbol. The Silent Movie slot logo is the Wild symbol in this game and it serves to replace any other symbols on the reels except for the Scatters (or the bonus symbols).
- Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is represented by the golden movie tickets icon. These cannot be replaced by the Wilds and will trigger the Free Spins feature. However, you’ll have to land two of these on reels 1-3, along with one special symbol on reel 4 in order to trigger this feature.
- A Muddy Romance Free Spins. One of the four types of Free Spins you can get is called A Muddy Romance. This is the one that will appear more often and you’ll get 6 to 12 free spins, with an average win of 10x your stake.
- A Trip to the Moon Free Spins. You can also be lucky enough to get this Free Spins game mode, during which you’ll get anywhere from 10 to 15 free spins. You’ll also have extra Wilds on the reels - a double-edged sword, we’d say, as these can earn you some pretty big wins or nothing at all.
- Keystone Cops Free Spins. The Keystone Cops free spins game mode will have you starting with a 2x or 5x multiplier. You’ll also get 10 free spins, with the multiplier doubling halfway through the game.
- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Free Spins. This bonus round will award you 3 to 6 free spins. It might not seem like much in the beginning but you have to know that during this feature, the counter doesn’t go down until you get a win. Which basically means you’re guaranteed 3 to 6 rewards.
All in all, we think IGT really did a great job with this slot. The lack of color is a great choice and sets this game apart from the rest of the slots on the market, so if you enjoy an aesthetically-pleasing slot, this is definitely the one for you. The medium variance will also offer you some pretty decent wins at pretty decent times and the Free Spins modes are definitely interesting enough! But you don’t have to take our word for it. Get your ticket to the Silent Movie and see what you think!
