Silent Movie is a five-reel 30-payline black and white video slot produced by IGT, one of the leading American gaming companies. The game offers a possibility of unlocking even four fantastic bonus features which are designed in the fashion of silent movies such as Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Trip To The Moon, A Muddy Romance and Keystone Kops.
You will be taken by the world of Silent Era of Hollywood with all the symbols serving well to the theme and features inspired by four different stories real movie fans will surely enjoy.
What We Love
We were not very impressed by the visuals of IGT slot machines until we have seen Silent Movie as this one must be one of their best-looking video slots which is also elaborate when it come to other features. So, you can win the total of four different bonus features and each one of them offers multiple chances of winning. Depending on the feature you trigger, you can enjoy multipliers which go up 10x, additional Wilds, Scatter wins up to 250x your total bet and extra free spins and each of these bonus games can be retriggered as well.
Besides the graphics and animations, you will also enjoy a great soundtrack, just as ones which can be heard in silent movies. Payouts are high throughout the game and 30 paylines offers many opportunities for creating winning lines.
The thing we especially appreciate is that during the main game, instead of playing card symbols which usually deliver low payouts, the slot uses all the symbols related to the theme making the reels look great.
What We Do Not Like
We have mentioned that during the regular game all positions are covered with the theme related-symbols. Well, during the bonus games playing card symbols are also included on the reels and we are not very delighted with that.
The theme of the game may be frustrating for those players who are not that into cinematography while bonus features may seem a bit confusing. In order to overcome it, you should visit the paytable and check out all the options during the various levels of the game.
You need to meet all characters first in order to understand the gameplay and all the features offered. Wild does not appear on the first reel during the base or bonus games. Besides, the reels in black and white may strike you as awkward especially when you need to wager at least $1 per line which is $30 per spin.
You need to be passionate about movies to be impressed with this slot machine from IGT. The Silent Movie video slot is surely worth playing due to all its features, but if you are not a high-roller you cannot afford it as the minimum stake you can wager is $30 per spin.
If you can pay such an amount for this kind of entertainment, you can expect an exciting and rewarding gaming experience, especially during the bonus games which take the game to a whole new level.
