Nothing packs people into theaters like a Hollywood blockbuster starring “A-List” celebrities and every year brings tons of new releases. Big budget movies also have the power to drive players to online casinos if they release a cool slot that’s based on the film.
It has definitely become more popular for moviemakers to license the rights to a software company so they can create a machine based on it. However, sometimes developers release games that have nothing to do with the film whatsoever and there are even ones that have altered the plot entirely. You just never know what you’re going to get until you start playing which is why we spend so much time review each and every release.
Here are all of our reviews on movie-themed slot games and you can check out the ratings stars to quickly find the best ones to read about.
We’re just like everyone else and we certainly have our favorites films, but we’ll always mention this at the beginning of the review so you know if we’re coming at it with preexisting feelings. It’s understandable that whether or not you enjoyed the movie will have an impact on if you like the game: it’s amazing what you can see through rose colored glasses.
If we didn’t like the movie we might be a little more skeptical on the way in but ultimately we’ll always have an open mind. For example, it would take a pretty darn fun machine to make us forget how terrible a movie like Howard the Duck was, but if it has tons of special features and is a lot of fun to play, we’ll give it good grades.
It’s always nice to be surprised by a title that you didn’t see coming and it’s even better when that game is good. For example, it was pretty shocking when NYX decided to release Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Slots almost 20 years after the film was in theaters, but fans were giddy with excitement to see it listed at betting websites. Therefore, sometimes we’ll give a game extra points just for the shock value of it being released to reward the software company for thinking outside the box.
There are three main categories of games that you’ll find out there: Action, Comedy, and Horror, with each genre usually having it’s own style. The comedies will always have whacky audios and ridiculous scenes from the movie they’re depicting, while the horror ones seem to usually have frightening faces, strange imagery, and creepy soundtracks. The action ones tend to have lots of explosions and gunfire, and can easily blow you out of your chair with their sound effects.
So always check back here if you’re looking for a specific machine – if it’s a game based on a Hollywood movie, you’ll find a review about it at our website.
