Online slot games come in many shapes and sizes these days. If you take a quick look at the selection of titles we offer, you will see a range of themes and styles – from classic, brightly-coloured arcade experiences to more modern games based on major TV and film franchises.
While the latter may come as a surprise to some, the truth is that online casinos and the movie industry have enjoyed a strong relationship for a number of years. Film slots often feature iconic imagery, video clips, and music from the Hollywood hits they are based on, while some also adapt elements of the movies’ storylines into their gameplay too.
Such games are often a sure-fire success for developers, as they are able to create the titles safe in the knowledge that there are legions of fans who are likely to play them. On the flipside, the fans get access to a new kind of slot game experience based on something that they know and love
The Invisible Man
This iconic Hollywood character has been given a whole new lease of life in recent months thanks to the film reboot starring Mad Men and The Handmaid’s Tale actress Elisabeth Moss. However, if you found that movie to be a little too scary for your liking, you can rest assured that the slot game Invisible Man based on the character’s classic form – hat, sunglasses, bandages and all – is more fun than frightening.
The Jumanji franchise has enjoyed a box office renaissance in recent years thanks to both Welcome to the Jungle and last year’s The Next Level – which both star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart. Those two sequels of course play on the nostalgia of the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, and the game expertly brings the magic of that classic to life. The Jumanji slot game even includes a board game feature designed to evoke the original’s storyline.
The classic adventure comedy which starred Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, and many more is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. So, why not relive the magic by playing the slot game it has inspired? Unsurprisingly, the The Goonies slot has a strong pirate theme and also incorporates elements of the story with features such as One-Eyed Willy’s Bonus Boost.
Kristen Wiig is set to enter the world of superheroes later this year as she takes on the role of Cheetah in the new Wonder Woman film. However, her appearance in the blockbuster could make movie fans nostalgic for the movie she arguably made her name in – the comedy classic Bridesmaids. The Bridesmaids slot has been created based on the film and it features images and clips of some of its most famous moments.
Planet of the Apes
This is another classic movie franchise which has enjoyed a new lease of life in recent years. The recent trilogy, which featured a couple of entries directed by The Batman director Matt Reeves, has proven to be a huge success and all of the signs point to a fourth film being in the pipeline. The Planet of the Apes slot game, based on the newer films in the franchise, features a host of imagery from the series, including – of course – the iconic ape Caesar.
Sylvester Stallone’s iconic action hero John Rambo returned to the big screen for yet another mission last year in Last Blood, but did you know the character’s adventures have been given the slot film treatment? The Rambo slot game was created by iSoftBet and features four progressive jackpots for players to win.
Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs
While she may be best known for her adventures in video gaming, Lara Croft has also enjoyed plenty of box office success through the years. A second film starring Alicia Vikander is thought to be in the pipeline, so now may be a good time to unlock the mysteries of the Temples & Tombs online slot. The game created by Microgaming features everything you would expect from Tomb Raider, including ancient relics and treasure.
Robert Pattinson may currently be hard at work taking on the role of Bruce Wayne in The Batman, but he, of course, became a heartthrob in his role as Edward Cullen in the series of movies based on the Twilight novels. Fans of those movies will no doubt love Immortal Romance, a slot game from Microgaming which features a similar sense of dark mystery and undead love.
King Kong Cash
Not many Hollywood heavyweights are as big as King Kong. The giant ape landed on the big screen all the way back in 1933 and has continued to captivate audiences up to 2017’s Kong: Skull Island. He has also made a few appearances in the slot film world too, with King Kong Cash slot game giving the character a colourful and fun-filled makeover.
Another film classic which has been celebrating an anniversary, the music comedy Spinal Tap – which followed the trials and tribulations of a fictional British hard rock group, turned 35 just last year. Blueprint Gaming’s Spinal Tap slot machine features a range of images of characters from the films and is all served up in a package full of heavy metal iconography.
There are many slot games available online these days, but it is fair to say that movie slot machines offer a particularly fun experience.
The titles we have mentioned above are just a few of those on offer at Betsson, so why not open an account and see what other film-related games we have on offer today?
