Hit blockbuster movies have always been a great vessel for franchising. If made right, even years after they are released they can still sell products and induce nostalgia in people. One popular way of franchising that often gets overlooked in today’s times is to turn hit movies into immensely entertaining slot machines. This is quite unfair, really, because when you combine hit films with engaging slot features, that’s where some real magic happens. If you need proof, just take a look at these popular movies that were made into some great slot machines:
Jurassic Park (1993)
Jurassic Park was one of the first licensed slot games to become massively popular online and to no surprise. Apart from the fact that it features material from one of the most beloved movie franchises of all times, this slot also has some serious bonuses to give to its players. Offering 243 ways to win, 4 different free spins games, wild bonuses, and a jackpot of 475,000, Jurassic Park can not only entertain players but also pay them exceptionally well. And if you ever grow tired of it, you also have a sequel to look forward to – the just-as-entreating Jurassic World video slot. The game is available in free play mode at www.novibet.co.uk.
Halloween is one of John Carpenter’s most memorable films and a “slasher” flick which set the standards that many similar films follow to this time. Microgaming’s licensed Halloween slot is probably one the best tributes made for this film, featuring HD images, sounds, and animations from the classic movie. It’s a 5-reels slot game with 40 paylines and a “wandering reels” feature that moves across the screen to produce big 3×3 symbols. And the best part of all is that you get to play a bonus game where you will try to escape the knife-wielding Mike Myers down the stairs to win some cash prizes.
Justice League (2017)
Leave it to Playtech to make some of the best movie-slots around, right? The Justice League video slot was launched after the 2017 DC movie started playing in theaters to profit on the hype. Naturally, it features licensed characters, animations, and music from the movie, but that’s only a very small part of its appeal. With features like Super Hero respins, 7 types of free spins rounds, wild bonuses, and four progressive jackpots, Justice League isn’t just a movie-themed slot, it’s a high-paying slot extravaganza.
Terminator 2 (1991)
Another Microgaming Hit, Terminator 2 is based on one of the best movie sequels of all times. Unlike the Jurassic Park, this slot isn’t loaded with bonus games but instead features a free spins round where you get to play with 1,024 ways to win. And like every other licensed game from the Isle of Man studio, it is built to perfection and features animated cut-scenes, sound clips, and stills from the cult sci-fi film. It even has a T-800 Vision feature where the screen turns red and the Terminator scans for enemies and friends, awarding cash prizes every time the scanner locks into a familiar face!
