Silent Movie IGT Slot Game
We’ve almost been conditioned at this point to expect any slot game focusing on old movies to have come from NetEnt. From Dracula and The Invisible Man to Creature from the Black Lagoon, if a movie came out before you were born but still has a game based on it, then the chances are that NetEnt is behind it. However, that’s by no means the case here, as Silent Movie sees IGT bringing their undoubted expertise to the table with plenty of gameplay and features to enjoy for a truly modern game based on aged classics of the entertainment industry.
With five reels and thirty lines, players will immediately feel comfortable on the game, simply because the base action plays out much the same as any other IGT slot. There are no playing card symbols here, mainly because there is simply no room for them. Clapperboards and director’s chairs instead make up the bulk of the lower value symbols, with the higher value ones being depicted by some classic silent movies. Specifically, Keystone Kops, A Trip to the Moon, A Muddy Romance and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde are the stars of the game, with their core symbols being joined by a movie poster for each, which serves as a wild card across all but the first reel. As experienced slots players would expect, these wild cards can fill in for anything other than the feature symbols and there are two in place here.
Grab a Ticket to Bag a Bonus
The bonus action is triggered on Silent Movie by landing a ticket scatter on reel two and any of the movie posters on reel four. The relevant poster will then lead to a specific bonus round, taking the form of one of a variety of free spins bonuses.
With the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde movie poster, players will be required to choose a ticket to determine the number of free spins, with between three and six up for grabs. All wins are tripled and these free spins are effectively win spins, as a losing spin will see one more free game added to the remaining total.
In the A Trip to the Moon bonus game, players will be awarded between ten and fifteen free spins depending on the ticket that they choose. Additional wilds are added to the board for the duration of the round, making each spin inherently more valuable than those that take place in the base game.
In the Keystone Kops bonus, players will receive a bonus multiplier as part of their ticket pick, which could be anything from two to five times the standard prize value. Ten free spins will then be awarded, with the first five playing out without a multiplier before the allocated boost comes into play on spins six through ten.
Finally, A Muddy Romance will see between six and twelve free spins being awarded but this time additional scatters are added to the board, making it slightly easier to land additional bonus spins.
Silent Movie definitely looks great and the gameplay is first class, just as players would expect from IGT. If we had to pick out any flaws, we would have liked to have seen the different bonus rounds based on the movies themselves – even though we’ve never seen any of them if we’re perfectly honest! Different sets of free spins can feel like a bit of a cop out, but they are still highly valuable and so we can’t complain too much. You can see them in action for yourself right now, all with no deposit required, by playing Silent Movie right here at Games Mania and you can also check out everything that the game has to offer with real prizes on the line by heading over to a featured IGT partner casino.
