Hollywood glamour from the golden age of cinema is the theme served up in Silent Movie, a beautifully designed 5 reel, 30 payline video slot from IGT. This particular feature presentation comes with a quartet of bonus features that award a variety of free spins with extra wilds, extra scatter wins and multipliers. Take your seat from 30p to £90 per spin.
The visuals on show in Silent Movie are top notch – the setting is a glamorous cinema auditorium. The movie theme is maintained with the symbols on the reels. There’s no playing card filler here – instead look out for black and white reels of film, bull horns, clapper boards, director’s chair and movie cameras.
The higher value symbols are a Keystone Kop, leading lady Mabel, a shot of the moon and Dr Jekyll. The Silent Movie logo is the game’s wild, substituting for everything bar the bonus symbols. Very fine it looks too, accompanied by a ragtime style piano soundtrack.
Silent Movie comes with a quartet of bonus features – to trigger them, you need to land 2 of the standard movie ticket bonus symbol with a third ticket that relates to 1 of 4 specific films, each of which offers something a little different.
The Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Bonus feature – here you’ll receive between 3 and 6 free spins with all winning combinations boosted by a 3x multiplier. Look out too for the extra wild which is added on all your free spins, substituting for Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde whenever it hits on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5. Every free spin during this feature is a guaranteed winner.
A Trip to the Moon Bonus feature – you’ll win 10 and 15 free spins here alongside extras wilds and increased jackpot payouts that can reach 2,000 coins. Land a winning combo that features the moon symbol and the payout will be doubled.
A Muddy Romance Bonus feature – 6 to 12 free spins are awarded with extra scatter wins also on offer. Land 8 scatters during this feature and a bonus prize of 250 times your stake is on offer.
Keystone Kops Bonus feature – the chaotic cops will get you 10 free spins. Before the spins play out, you get to pick a ticket from the booth. This awards a 2x and 5x multiplier which will be applied to your first 5 free spins. Your original multiplier will be doubled for the second 5 spins, possibly reaching 10x.
You can re-trigger the bonus feature if you’re lucky enough to land a trio of bonus ticket symbols during the free spins.
Silent Movie is a very entertaining video slot – it looks and sounds terrific and conjures up the era beautifully. There’s plenty on offer from the features too which provide a nice range of extra goodies. Think of them as the tasty tub of popcorn that enhances a trip to the cinema.
Even if your film fandom only stretches back a few years, you’ll still find plenty to enjoy here. With great design and some quality features, Silent Movie is a game that bears repeat viewing. If you like movie themed video slots, there are plenty to choose from with Bally’s Titanic and Microgaming’s Jurassic Park highly recommended.
