IGT is placing its bets on its all new silent movie themed slot, fittingly called Silent Movie. Whereas, most slot providers are going bigger in terms of both graphics and gameplay, Silent Movie has been explicitly designed to give a classic feel, with a modern edge.
Monochrome visuals and streamlined bonus features give the slot a traditional feel, with a few innovative tweaks to make it fit right in with the slot's we've come to expect from IGT. So let's take a look and see what we'll get when Silent Movie arrives in June.
Silent Movie Slot Overview
These are the key features that Silent Movie has to offer:
- 5×3 reel slot with 30 paylines
- Iconic silent movie symbols trigger big wins
- 4 free spin bonus features
- 96.5% RTP
- Plays actual movie clips from the films
Free Spins Bonus Feature
As we've mentioned above, the features in Silent Movie have been scaled back somewhat, compared to previous IGT slots, due to its classic layout. But that doesn't mean that Silent Movie has nothing to offer.
Although there's only one bonus feature, which is a free spins mode, within that free spins mode are 4 additional features. These features are triggered by one of 4 symbols which will randomly spin as the final scatter symbol of the 3 total scatters. Whatever the final scatter symbol is on the 4th reel, that's the free spins mode you'll play.
The 4 features available to play are:
- Jekyll and Hyde – Win Spins (guaranteed win on every spin)
- A Trip To The Moon – More wild symbols and 12 free spins
- A Muddy Romance – Adds scatter wins symbols (wilds give additional free spins)
- Keystone Kops – Double the multiplier every time you spin KK symbols
As a point in its favour, Silent Movie's free spin features are varied and shake up the round greatly. Features such as win spins, where you get a guaranteed win after each spin, are the kind of feature we barely ever see.
There's a lot of interesting ideas going on, it's just a shame they're all crammed into one bonus round, which makes the slot feel like it has less to offer than it actually does.
But the best part of these features being in the same place, is that the bonus mode can be re-triggered, so you can get lucky and have more features within a single lot
of bonus rounds.
Silent Movie Arrives June 9th
Silent Movie is looking to be a nice edition to the IGT library, although unlikely to blow anyone out of the water. However, if you're a classic movie fan and want a slot to scratch that itch, we can all agree that there's very few slots with the classic film aesthetic to do that job any better.
You can find Silent Movie on release at IGT powered casinos like LadyLucks Casino. LadyLucks always have a great promotion to go with any new slot, so we'll update you on it once it drops, but until then, at least you know where to look on June 9th.
