Ten of the Best TV And Film Slots To Try And Where You Can Play Them
Slot games that are based on successful films and TV series are always some of the most popular games you will find on any casino site and as a result, these games are hugely popular with software development companies, who will battle to secure the license to produce a slot linked to the latest blockbuster.
In addition, seeing as the slot will be linked to a famous film, slots developers will go to extraordinary lengths to offer something exciting, different or even unique items to a slot to give it that extra appeal. As a result, when it comes to technical innovation, or big money jackpot prizes or even just some features that you won’t find anywhere else, film and TV slots are a great place to start.
With that in mind we’ve taken a look at three of our key sites, Coral Vegas, its sister site Coral Casino and Leo Vegas and compiled a list of ten film and TV tie-in slots that are well worth you taking a closer look for a variety of reasons. The top ten is outlined below with a brief description of the key elements of the game.
- Gladiator Jackpot Slot – Coral Vegas
The Gladiator progressive jackpot slot was one of the first games to appeal to both smaller stakes and higher stakes progressive fans as it could be played from 25p up to £1,250 per spin. Oddly enough, Russell Crowe’s character doesn’t appear on the slot (presumably due to image rights reasons) but many of the other key characters from Ridley Scott’s Roman blockbuster are present and the slot includes plenty of action sequences taken from the film as well as a stirring soundtrack. With a progressive jackpot of hundreds of thousands usually available to be won, this is a slot that has enjoyed long term appeal amongst its fans.
- Game of Thrones Slot – Leo Vegas
One of the most popular slots of recent times about one of the most popular TV series of the modern era. Join the battle for the Iron Throne as the houses of Stark, Lannister, Baratheon and Targaryen battle for the future of Westeros in this popular Microgaming slot. You can select from two version of the game, a 15-payline version or 243 ways to win game, with the 15-payline slot being the cheapest of the two to play. There are four different bonus games, each named after the four big houses on Westeros and the chance to win up to 20,250 times your stake during these bonus features.
- Superman Progressive Series – Coral Casino
The original Superman series of films alongside the latest series of films starring Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel are the inspiration (along with the Green Lantern slot) in the latest Playtech progressive jackpot series of games. There are three Superman slots to play through as part of the DC Universe progressive, Superman the Movie, Superman II and the Man of Steel slot and all pay into the same progressive jackpot fund. Each slot however is very different offering a completely different set of bonus features and games for punters to try out.
- Planet of the Apes – Leo Vegas
How about a slot game that doesn’t just celebrate one film, but two? The new Planet of the Apes slot from NetEnt is not based on the old 1960s films, but instead the more modern remakes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and what is more, you get to play both slots at the same time with the Rise slot on the left of the screen in a 5×3 format and the Dawn slot on the right also in the same format. However, although you are playing two machines, you don’t have to pay twice the wager and the good news is that each of the two slot games has their own prizes and also of course their own two free spins bonus rounds which you can trigger during which a jackpot of 600,000 coins can be won.
- Robocop – Coral Casino
Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film Robocop wasn’t expected to be a smash hit success, but surprised many by being precisely that and now you can join all the top characters from the film including Robocop and his adversary ED-209 in this fantastic and futuristic slot from Playtech. There are a total of 25 pay lines in play on each spin and you can start the reels from £0.25 per spin. The jackpot is 2,500 coins and there are four base game random bonus games you can enjoy and then four free spins bonus games based on each of the base game bonuses. With superb sound and graphics and plenty of bonus games to explore, Robocop is a slot you can enjoy for the longer term.
- Jurassic Park – Leo Vegas
One of Microgaming’s most accomplished ever slots is the fantastic Jurassic Park game based on the 1990’s film directed by Steven Spielberg. You can play from £0.30 up to £15 per spin and there are no paylines, instead 243-ways to win across the reels. All the main characters from the film are present and the slot benefits from some outstanding graphics and 3D Parallax scrolling which brings the game to life like never before, especially when the T-Rex Alert Mode bonus is triggered during the base game. Add to this no less than six different free spins bonuses to explore and a raft of multipliers and Wild bonuses, and you have one of the most technically accomplished and exciting slots to play of the modern era.
- Rocky – Coral Casino
Sylvester Stallone’s underdog boxing flick was a surprise Oscar success in the 1970s, and spawned a series of films which saw Rocky taking on a series of opponents and elements from the first four films in the series have been put together for this popular Playtech slot. The ROCKY feature is a nice way to win 5x your total bet, while you can win up to 25 free spins when you trigger the Italian Stallion bonus round, which also features a 2x multiplier on every cash prize won.
- Terminator 2 – Leo Vegas
“I’ll be back!” promised Arnie in the original Terminator and he was good to his word returning to the role in the 1991 James Cameron directed blockbuster Terminator 2. Many years later, the slot version of the film was developed by Microgaming and it was well worth the wait. The 5×3 reel slot boasts a host of different features including a Free Spins bonus game which increases the ways to win from 243 up to 1024 and there is also the T-800 Vision bonus feature which can be unlocked on any spin in the base game and which also offers a quicker route to land the free spins bonus.
- King Kong Cash – Coral Vegas
Blueprint’s gaming King Kong Cash is not based on the classic film per se, nor is it anything to do with the modern remakes of that classic, but instead what you have here is a slot based on the character, only this King Kong is more comfortable lying asleep at the side of the reels, only waking up when you make a spin. It’s; a 5×3 reel, 20 pay line slot that offers a jackpot of up to 1,000 times your stake and an incredible nine different bonus rounds to play your way through.
- Bridesmaids – Leo Vegas
The 2011 romantic comedy which starred Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Rose Byrne, Maya Rudolph and Ellie Kemper and was directed by Paul Feig, was another surprise box office hit and it took a few years before Microgaming managed to produce this well designed slot. A 5×4 reel slot this has 40 pay lines in play and there are a number of different bonus games you can trigger from the Bonus Wheel. This is a well thought out and nicely presented slot which features plenty of iconic moments and soundbites from the original film.
