- Our picks from the world of celebrity personality-themed slot games
- Cutting through the glitz and glamour to tell you what you need to know about these ten games
The world of slots is broadly divided into original creations and licensed games. The originals include some very fun ideas and characters, such as Gonzo’s Quest and Blood Suckers, but the licensed casino games are known for their instant recognition factor. Non-slot players will spot something they recognise like Game of Thrones and leap straight in.
For fans of a certain movie or TV show, it makes the game way more fun, spotting all the characters and enjoying the themed music.
A lot of licensed slots are based around a celebrity personality, but not all are made equal.
Some just feel like a hastily reskinned game, promoting a certain person. Fortunately for you, we’ve weeded out some of the better celeb games that have solid slot mechanics as well as featuring famous faces.
Top Trumps Celebrities
Starting off with a host of different famous names, this Top Trumps slot produced by Playtech packs in several celebs into one fun game. Several online casinos offer this game, such as Bet365 Casino.
Just like any Top Trumps game, the slot is all about spotting celebs of different ranks, which is how the symbols in the game are assigned different values. Players will find David Beckham, Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, Elizabeth Hurley and more. Elvis stars as a wild symbol– he will always be the king!
The game features a Red Carpet bonus where 16 celebs are hidden in a wall of tiles, with the player picking them to get a randomised prize. Though there’s no defining theme for this celeb game, it has very high-quality photos and gameplay.
Frankie Dettori’s Magic 7
Players can pop into any major casino site, such as LeoVegas Casino, to find this horse racing themed game by Playtech. The legend Frankie has put his stamp on this simple and quite casual blend of racing and slots.
The magic seven in the title comes from Frankie’s famous Magnificent Seven day at Ascot racecourse, when he won all seven races on the card.
This 5 reel, 25 payline game celebrates that victory with shots of Frankie in action. The symbols include the man himself and iconic horse racing and Ascot imagery. The Magic Seven bonus crowns the game well, a picking round where players can find big cash by picking positions from a race track.
This NetEnt slot, which can be found at bgo casino, celebrates one of the legends of rock, Jimi Hendrix, famous for guitar and song writing work that defined a generation.
Considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time, Jimi is honoured in this slot that features all his top tunes, like Purple Haze. The slot opens with an animated sequence and it takes a cartoon-like approach to the art, rather than photography of Jimi. This is ideal for getting a sense of his hazy, slightly psychedelic world!
The reel symbols include the infamous red guitar, records, eyes and flowers- all very trippy. While listening to the great music, players can find two features. The Purple Haze feature transforms several symbols into wilds for a potential big win. The Red Guitar re-spin gives players an instant re-spin that can keep re-triggering.
Everyone recognised the famous Osbourne family! The patriarch Ozzy is one of the most recogniseable rock stars of our age, famous for Paranoid, Crazy Train a host of other hits.
Sharon, Jack and Kelly have all had television and other careers of their own, becoming a true Hollywood power family. This slot features them all as symbols and while the artwork is not Microgaming’s best, the game has a good enough mechanic to make this fun for fans of the family.
Players will find a free spin round worth 10 spins, where all the prizes are doubled- potentially very lucrative indeed. There’s also a bonus game where players pick a gift with a cash prize inside, or finally the Knock Knock game which focuses on the Osbourne residence door knocker! You can try the game at Videoslots Casino.
Michael Jackson King of Pop
This is a very fun celebrity game, all about the most famous pop musician of our times- Michael Jackson.
This game can be found at Guts Casino and will massively appeal to fans of the King of Pop, with snippets of music and plenty of iconic imagery of Michael in action. Though this game is a little on the simple side, it’s also great for a light, casual play.
The reels feature Jackson’s famous glove, hats, sunglasses and the man himself. Watch out for Moonwalk Wilds, which can appear randomly on the reels and create big wins, with double payouts. The game also surprises with stacked wilds and a bonus wheel round.
Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway
This slot stars those rascals of UK weekend television, Ant and Dec, as part of their very own TV show. Fans of the show are sure to enjoy this game, but any slots fan can appreciate the high-quality photography, music and fun feature rounds.
Ant and Dec feature individually and as a pair, with the game taking place on the set of the show. The symbols are based on elements form the show, such as toothpaste… it will all make sense if you tune in.
This 40 line game can be found at 32Red Casino. The base game goes up to a huge 600x potential win, with a jackpot too- fitting for a gameshow. There are multiple features to trigger, such as Ant and Dec free spins, Get Out of My Ear spins (with stacked symbols and wilds), End of the Show matching up the stars’ faces and Best Bits, where players pick the best clips!
Another NetEnt music-themed slot, Motorhead is found at most NetEnt sites like Casumo Casino. Players will immediately recognise the heavy rock of this infamous band, which had hits like Ace of Spades, Overkill and Bomber, which feature in this casino game.
The game also features photography of the band. There’s nothing quite like listening to some rock while you spin away, then getting a blast of music when you win- this game is all about feeling like a rock star, just like Lemmy himself.
Symbols include cherries, lucky horsehoes and Lemmy’s mean visage. The theme is supported by black, gloomy artwork and a real sense of being on tour. The most fun feature on this game is the Mystery Reel, where one or more reels become the Mystery Reel and turn symbols into other random symbols.
Though it isn’t specifically themed after a certain celebrity, this is the Microgaming slot to check out if you want to see the cast of this iconic horror movie.
Michael Myers stalks his victims all over again in this slot that features creepy music and unsettling symbols, such as a clown mask and gun. The really eerie part is that Michael sometimes appears in the corner of your eye, complete with his blank mask and massive knife!
There’s no mistaking Jamie Lee Curtis here, in her debut role as Laurie Strode. The Boogeyman bonus round has players picking leaves to reveal bonuses, but watch out for Michael appearing and slashing your wins in half! You can try this slot at Betway Casino.
Guns N Roses
The third in NetEnt’s rock music trio, Guns N Roses naturally showcases the iconic rock band fronted by Alx Rose. The game loads with a smooth animation and roar of music, capturing the feeling of being on stage with the band.
The legends of the band appear as symbols in the game, drawn in an artistic style. Roses, plectrums and more complete the rock theme, while players are invited to pick their soundtrack using the ‘set list’. Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child of Mine and more hits let you rock out while you spin.
This game features expanding wilds that make the band’s iconic logo, plus there’s a fun record-themed bonus wheel. The best feature however is the crowd-pleaser bonus, which is based around putting on a rock concert for your fellow Guns fans! Give it a spin at Mr Green Casino.
Top Trumps World Football Stars 2014
This is another Playtech Top Trumps game, but focusing on the world of football. This is actually an update on a previous game, with new footballers.
The game, which can be found at All British Casino, cleverly themes around a football match, with players picking a team to play from England, Brazil, Argentina France, Italy, Germany and Spain. This in turn changes the symbols that you see on the reels, so it creates an amount of replay-ability. Naturally, the celebrity angle comes from having famous footballs on the reels, worth different amounts.
The likes of Wayne Rooney star in photo quality symbols, along with the flags of the chosen teams. The slot has 5 reels and 15 paylines, keeping things simple, while the feature is Pass the Ball which sees a ball passed between the reels, until scoring a goal for a 3x multiplier.
