Lights, camera, action: four movie-themed slots you have to play

  • Slots that movie buffs are bound to love
  • Tons of great features, bonuses and nostalgia to be found

Movie-themed slots are ten a penny at online casinos: every Hollywood blockbuster, from the epic to the forgettable, seems to have its own branded slot game spin-off these days.

That’s fine with us; we’re more than happy to roll the reels of slots featuring our favourite comic book heroes and big screen stars. For every casino conversion hit however, there are a few misses. In that respect, slots are much like the movies themselves in that they can’t all be winners.

The following selections have taken our fancy however thanks to a combination of authenticity, clever themed features, sharp graphics and sampled audio that presents a thrilling simulacrum of the real thing.

Planet of the Apes

NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes slot game has been hotly anticipated and has now landed.
NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes slot game has been hotly anticipated and has now landed.

As one of the most successful and longest running movie franchises, it’s only right that Planet of the Apes should have its own slot, and in Planet of the Apes by NetEnt they have a game worthy of the name.

This unique slot features two 5×3 screens running simultaneously giving you twice the opportunities to land a winner at no extra cost.

In essence, you get two games for the price of one when you play Planet of the Apes. Both games have their own symbols and unique bonuses as well as free spins games. Aspiring players can get their simian paws on Planet of the Apes at LeoVegas Casino now.

Baywatch

Mitch, Cody, Caroline and Pamela Anderson’s CJ are all on the reels of this great Baywatch inspired slot

Baywatch is the latest TV series to be given the big screen treatment, this time with tongue planted firmly in cheek and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as the lead.

Although Baywatch by IGT has been released in conjunction with the movie, the game itself owes more to the TV series with Mitch, Cody, Caroline and Pamela Anderson’s CJ all featuring prominently. Stacked symbols and bonuses increase your chances of success while the teamwork feature multiplies your win.

It’s as cheerful and cheesy and you’d expect a Baywatch title to be, and while the reels don’t wobble while they’re running, they’re still worth watching. You can play Baywatch at Genting Casino today.

Justice League

The Justice League have been at the heart of DC Comics for years and like almost all comic-lore are now the subject of an upcoming movie. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are amongst the pantheon of heroes in Justice League by NextGen.

Stacked symbols, wilds and free spins are just some of the super-powered bonuses in the game. In the Power Up feature, one superhero fills both reel one and reel five during a respin. If you’ve gone a while without a win then justice can be done and your bankroll will be rescued. Justice League is available to play at Pyramid’s Fortune.

James Dean

James Dean lived fast and died too young. In James Dean by NextGen the legendary movie star of Rebel Without a Cause is brought back to life with the iconography of fast cars, film reels, a boulevard star and the man himself.

A rock and roll soundtrack completes the package in this 25 payline 5-reel. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a maverick you can find James Dean in the Hollywood section of Rizk Casino along with many other movie-themed slots.

These four might be our current favourites, but with so many classics to choose from including the entire Marvel series of branded slots, the Wizard of Oz trilogy and the hilarious Naked Gun, this is a topic we’re sure to return to in the near future. What’s your favourite movie-themed slot?
