Why IGT’s New Silent Movie Slot Is A Relic Before It’s Even Out

Thursday, May 26th, 2016 by LuckyMobileSlots

Update 9/06/2016: You can now try IGT Silent Movie slot for yourself over at Mr Green mobile casino »

IGT have announced that they will be releasing their brand new Silent Movie slot on the 9th of June, but instead of excitement, all we feel is dread.

And that feeling has nothing to do with the fact that one of the four movies in this IGT slot machine is Jekyll and Hyde.

We are not doing a clever play on words, or tricking you into reading a post about how a mobile slot is going to be bad, but really it will be good.

We’re genuinely not sure this Silent Movie game will meet the high expectations we have for this casino software.

After all, this is IGT; they bring out beautiful games based on movies like Sherlock the Hunt for Blackwood, or funny games based on cult TV shows like the Family Guy slot.

And in their search for something equally iconic, they might have fallen straight on their face.

Watch the Silent Movie slot video preview

In order to understand where we are coming from, you need to watch a quick 2 minute slot video showcasing the Silent Movie mobile slot, and all the features you’ll find.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch it because you are reading this at work (Naughty. We like you.) then we’ll do our best to describe the mess that’s happening here.

Are you a film student? You’ll love this!

There is probably no one left alive who will remember any of the iconic films that are being showcased in this Android and iPhone slot; short of being forced to watch these within your film studies.

The Silent Movies in question?

  • Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1920): Less ‘recognition’ more ‘who doesn’t know this story?’.
  • A Trip To The Moon (1902): That iconic shot of the moon with a rocket in it’s eye is, granted… iconic. For lack of a better word.
  • A Muddy Romance (1913): No idea. Some kind of romance gone wrong?
  • Keystone Kops (1915): A slapstick comedy about cops?

If there is anyone alive who reads our post and remember seeing these movies, then we want to hear from you.

If only because it will be awesome to speak to a gambler whose had a century worth of experience.

Does it really matter if you don’t know the films?

Ok, fine, we are not film buffs.

But we are film lovers, and we’ve gone pretty far back in our research; from The Great Escape, to the Terminator and Harry Potter, all the way back to Casablanca and Singing in the Rain, we love, or at least watch, all popular culture.

Silent Movies haven’t been popular culture since someone went ‘hey, this microphone thing could be pretty neat’.

Even NetEntertainment, who love bringing classic films to our slot screen, pick iconic characters, rather than iconic films. You may not have watched it, but everyone knows The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Equally, when it came to doing the Invisible Man slot, whether you’ve watched the original movie, they brought in a familiar character into an oldie world setting, making it instantly recognisable.

Everything black and white is not going to help

Here’s the real downside we predict to this Silent Movie slot machine; ultimately the fact that this whole game is monochrome will make you cross-eyed with boredom.

Not once have we written about a new mobile slot and said ‘Boy that’s too colourful! Wish they’d made it black and white!’.

Some games can be subdued granted, like the Transformers slot by IGT. By colour does a lot to bring excitement to the five reels, especially if you have a lot of spins with very little action.

This is especially true on mobile where the smaller screen is less forgiving of dull graphics.

Any redeeming qualities in this Silent Movie online slot

To be fair, we are jumping to conclusions based on a short 2 minute video that left us pretty empty inside.

The slot Silent Movie might surprise us. The reason we remain hopeful, other than IGT have proven time and time again that they know how to create great online slots, is because of the features.

Of which, if you didn’t see the video above, there are many.

A quick look at the vital statistics:

  • 3×5 reels and 30 paylines
  • Trigger one of four free spins bonus Silent Movie slot features
  • Bonus picker gives you a chance to get more free spins and bigger multipliers
  • Rumours of stacked wilds
  • Low to medium volatility
  • Return to player rate of 96.5%
  • The online version also features actual movie clips

So to try and find a silver lining on this silver screen, the combination of different bonus features and lower volatility might be just what the doctor ordered.

The 4 Silent Movie free spins bonus games

The fact that this casino slot is on the lower variance scale for IGT means that, hopefully, you’ll trigger the bonus features often.

If there are stacked wilds in the base game (again, just rumours, not confirmed) then it should keep things exciting as you wait for the free spins.

Because these come in four different formats:

  • The Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde potion guarantees win spins
  • Get more wilds in the A Trip To The Moon free spins
  • A Muddy Romance gives you added extra scatter wins
  • The bumbling Keystone Kops shows up to give you bigger multiplier

Add the occasional dash of colour with the wild symbol, which catches your eye each time out of pure sensory deprivation, and you might just find enough wins here to not care about the theme.

Where can I play IGT slots?

The Silent Movie game won’t be out till the 9th of June 2016, but that’s not to say there’s not plenty of wonderful IGT mobile slots to enjoy meanwhile.

Namely because we don’t think anyone will be waiting with high anticipation for this particular release, so you might as well remember why IGT are awesome.

Our personal recommendations? We are big fans of Sushi Yum Yum Extra Wasabi which can only be found at IGT mobile casinos.

Otherwise, there’s always the beautiful Pixies of the Forest, of the MegaJackpots Cleopatra for some classic entertainment.

The best place to go, right now, is Casumo Casino, which give you €£1,200 in bonuses over 5 deposits, plus 200 free spins, when you register.
