In order to continue capturing their audience’s attention, casino operators are constantly looking for exciting new ways to stand out in this incredibly competitive market. One of the games that allow them to do this is slot machines. This is because it’s easy to incorporate specific themes (e.g. TV shows, music, fantasy, and superheroes) within these, allowing operators to reach out to fans of a specific genre.
Below, we’ll take a look at some of the top slots inspired by famous films:
- Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump burst onto the movie scene in 1994 and instantly captured our hearts. Even though he wasn’t the smartest, he had a heart made of gold and taught many of us some important life lessons.
So what better film to transform into a slot machine than this? Available as a 5-reel, 25-payline game, it’s perfect for a wide range of gamers from low- to high-rollers. You’ll also find some very familiar symbols, including Forrest, Lieutenant Dan, and Jenny, as well as a red hat, ping pong paddles, an army helmet and Momma’s house.
When you’re looking for a unique slot game that’s full of fun, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters, of course!
This 80s film is an all-time classic that transformed ghost hunting into something hilariously funny and cool to do.
Today, you can recapture all the joy of this film in the Ghostbusters slot, which has 5 reels and 50 fixed paylines. Not only does the game feature all of the Ghostbusters themselves but all the tools you need to capture ghosts, too. There’s also a few cool bonus features, including a psychic feature where you have to choose a card that’s the same as the one Dr. Venkman’s selected.
A little grittier in its storytelling, Platoon told the tale of a group of army soldiers embroiled in the Vietnam War. Hailed as one of the best Vietnam films ever made, it really got to the heart of the war and what effect it had on all the soldiers fighting it.
This is the same for the slot, which has a 5 reel and 30 payline setup. The game’s symbols include a tank and helicopter but the highest-paying icon is Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen). And although this is a darker game than the others we’ve mentioned, it’s perfect for fans of this film or ones who enjoy military-themed games.
These are just some of the fabulous slots available that have been inspired by films – and there’s plenty more to have a go at online!
