Hollywood is the center of the entertainment industry, and the cinema has provided us with some of the greatest and most intriguing stories of all time. The success of movies often results in the publication of novels, comic books, and video games that feature characters from the films, as well as the development of slot machines based on the films. In search of evidence? Then, check out these five slots inspired by Hollywood hits…
T. rex in Jurassic Park
This game is based on the blockbuster film from 1993, which used cutting-edge computer graphics to realistically portray prehistoric creatures. Microgaming’s 2014 release of a dedicated Jurassic Park slot machine proved that cinematic quality slot machines were finally within reach. Launching the game will drop you into the middle of the park as the film’s original score plays in the background.
There are 243 ways to win with every spin of the five reels, and the symbols on those reels include not only the five main dinosaurs but also Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Richard Attenborough as the four main human stars of the hit movie.
If you manage to land three or more amber symbols, the Free Spins bonus round will begin. When you’ve played free spins 25 times, you’ll unlock the ability to choose which dinosaur mode to activate.
This game is a must-play for any lover of Michael Crichton’s thrilling journey, with fully animated symbols (when forming part of a win) and actual footage from the movie.
Grease may be “the word,” but for the vast majority of us, it will always remain the 1978 musical that swept the nation. No matter way you look at it, it was a long time ago, but the film is still as beloved today as it was then.
Playtech’s 2018 casino game Grease is faithful to the film and was released in the same year. The setting of the game’s five reels is a 1950s restaurant, and the game’s symbols feature records, milkshakes, the vehicle from the film, and the film’s stars, including John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson.
Both Danny and Sandy can show up as single-cell symbols or fill up a whole reel. If Danny or Sandy appear reel-high on the first reel, the Respins feature will begin. However, three Grease scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the Jukebox Bonus.
The 1995 film Jumanji told the story of a supernatural board game that bestows unexpected benefits upon its participants. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson replaced Robin Williams in the lead role of the 2017 Jumanji remake. If you like any of the Jumani movies, you’ll enjoy this 2018 slot from NetEnt, which is titled after the first one but concentrates solely on the board game shared by all of them.
This game immediately comes to life thanks to the exotic music and sound effects of the jungle. It follows a 3-4-5-4-3 pattern, has 36 pay lines, and features symbols like the standard playing card ranks (but in the unique Jumani script) and a wide range of jungle animals waiting to make their move.
Sticky Vines, Monsoon Wilds, Monkey Mayhem, and Wild Stampede are the four random features. And if that weren’t enough, getting three or more scatter symbols will trigger the Board Game bonus round, where you can get up to eight rolls of the dice and even more opportunities to win.
