If you are longing for the days when women wore swimsuits down to their ankles and a hamburger only cost a nickel, then IGT's Silent Movie slot may be right up your alley. The game transports players to a 1930's era movie theatre and includes a lot of imagery that would make your grandparents smile.
Silent Movie is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that is based back in the 1930's. The game actually does incorporate music and sound, as there is an old-time style movie music playing in the background. Images in the game include icons from Hollywood at the time as well as movies like "A Muddy Romance", "A Trip to the Moon", and "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", all of which are classic films from back in the period. Symbols to be found include a director's chair, clapboard, megaphone, film case, movie camera, and various images from each of the above-mentioned films.
The game's features wild symbols, free spins, win multipliers, scatters, and spin until you win on the Jekyll feature. Each of the aforementioned movies have their own bonus round. Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde feature grants you 3 to 6 free spins where only winning spins count, and all wins are multiplied 3x. The A Trip to the Moon feature awards you with between 10 and 15 free spins with extra wild symbols on the reels. The A Muddy Romance feature gives you 6 to 12 free spins with extra scatter wins on the reels, and the Keystone Kops round features 10 free spins with a 2-5x multiplier that doubles to 4-10x after the first 5 spins.
I gave the game a nice play through session, and I walked away quite impressed. I wasn't expecting much from a game that wants to take us back almost 100 years, but this video slot somehow manages to impress visually as well as on the feature front. IGT has done a great job with their online slots in the past year, and Silent Movie is the latest example of this. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for something a bit different, as this title does a lot to transport you to a time you almost certainly never lived through, while still giving you a chance to win some big Hollywood bucks.
