Silent Movie Review
Silent Movie is a film-themed video slot with 5 reels and 30 paylines. It takes you to the 1920’s, the decade of rise and decline of silent films, which dominated cinema halls until the era of sounded motion pictures began. The slot has four astonishing Free Spin bonuses, each devoted to a film such as A Trip To the Moon and A Muddy Romance. With this exciting theme built into the gameplay, Silent Movie offers an incredibly huge payout of $300,000 and the chance to win around the same prize during bonus free spins.
The black-and-white reels take you back to the times of silent films. We, modern people, are spoiled by a variety of entertainment choices, while people of the 1920’s had very few alternatives for going around. The emergence of cinema at the beginning of the century made a whole generation see a shift from classic theaters to cinemas. Many films produced at that time are considered lost because of the fragile nature of the film stock but there are still hundreds of silent films that have survived up to the present day; some of them are present on slot’s symbols.
Silent Movie uses a traditional 5×3 configuration with 30 fixed lines. IGT designed it for all kinds of devices including mobile and PC. If playing the slot on a smartphone, you will see no clickable bet controls because they are hidden under a green button to the left of the reels. To get access to Line Bet values, you need to click it first. The desktop (Flash-based) interface is well-familiar for all IGT slot fans and is easy-to-understand by just about everybody.
Symbols, payouts and bet sizes
All symbols, except for 4 Bonus pics, are made black and white. They feature actors and equipment used to make films. Base game imagery differs from symbols used in free spins. In base game, you will come across a director’s chair, old camera vintage and megaphone; these award x5 to x125 for five of a kind. The other group of symbols depict an actor starring in The Keystone Kops (x300), an actress from A Muddy Romance (x400), an iconic image from A Trip to The Moon showing a capsule stuck from the Moon’s eye (x750) and an actor from a 1931 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde film (x1000). The figures in brackets define multipliers to be applied to a coin value for a specific combination that consists of five matching symbols.
Bet sizes focus mainly on high-budget gamblers because even the minimum bet of $30 per spin is somewhat high for an average gambler who plays in online casinos casually. Anyway, there are 11 coin values starting at $1 and going up to $300. As the number of lines is fixed at 30, the player can wager the maximum of $9000 per spin. Therefore, the top three payouts paid by regular symbols in base game are $300k, $225k and $120k. Some bonus modes have better cash awards.
A Silent Movie black-and-white projection screen with empty chairs is a wild symbol. It appears everywhere rather than reel 1 and substitutes for all regular pictures. It cannot create combinations by itself.
Four Film bonus features
There are four special colored symbols, which trigger four different free spin bonuses. To unlock any of the four features, you need to hit a Ticket icon on reel 2 and 3 plus an appropriate Feature Film symbol on reel 4. You are then awarded a certain number of free spins that are played a bit differently from each other, depending on the specific Feature Film bonus.
The number of free spins for each bonus is determined on a preliminary stage where you are asked to select a ticket booth, which would reveal the number of free games you have won. Each bonus has a unique set of symbols that show scenes from a related film. The four free spin modes are:
- A Muddy Romance Super Scatter free spins
- A Trip To the Moon Wild free spins
- The Keystone Kops Multiplier Boost
Six to twelve spins are awarded. During the feature, a wild symbol and Mabel will act as scatters and count in any position. Getting 3 to 8 of these symbols in any place awards x2 to x250 a total bet. Other payouts are around the same as in base game
Ten to fifteen spins are awarded. An extra wild is added to the reels. The paytable is richer than a base game one, with the max payout being x2000 a coin value ($600,000 at max)
You receive 10 free spins. From the 5th spin, the Keystone cops arrive and multiply all wins by x2 to x5 until the end of a free spin session.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Win Spins
You get 3 to 6 win spins, which differ from standard free spins in that a spin meter reduces only if there is a win. Moreover, all wins are trebled during the feature. There is also a special Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde picture that substitutes for both the main characters, thus improving the probability of earning higher Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde payouts.
Silent Movie is a feature-packed video slot with 5 reels and 30 paylines. Bet sizes vary from $30 to $9000, and the highest award reaches a mouth-watering $600k. Alongside wild symbols, the slot has 4 free spin modes featuring Win Spins, Random Multipliers, Super Scatters and a host of other things.
