Top 5 Movie-Themed Slots at BitStarz!
It doesn’t matter if they’re created to expand a universe or as a cash grab taking advantage of an aging franchise, movie-themed slots have been a staple in online casinos for years.
Some of these slots offer a unique gaming experience that incorporates elements of the movie into the slot’s theme and bonus features. Others include the bare minimum required to utilize the movie’s name as a shameless marketing ploy.
Below are five of the best movie-themed slots BitStarz has to offer!
The Invisible Man slot
Like many of the movies on this list, the Invisible Man started life as a book. It was written by famed science fiction author H. G. Wells and published in 1897. Since then, the story has become one of the most adapted in history. It was turned into a television series in 1975, 1984, and 2000. Film adaptations of the book were released in 1933, 1992, 1998, 2017, and 2020. There are probably more but we got bored and stopped looking.
The Invisible Man slot is produced by NetEnt under an official license from Universal Studios. The slot takes a classic interpretation of the story and is set in the early 1900s. When you launch the game, you’re greeted by an incredible cinematic introduction that sets the scene for the story. The graphics themselves are fantastic and have a very Tm Burtonesque quality to them.
To complement the striking graphics, The Invisible Man slot features a number of interesting bonus features including free spins, a bonus game, and not one by two wild symbols. If you’re going to check out just one slot on this list, we recommend this one.
The 90s were a great time for amazing movies – Demolition Man, Eraser, Clueless, the Addams Family, Cable Guy, Mrs. Doubtfire, Ave Venture: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, and, of course, Jumanji. They weren’t sequels or adaptations of other movies. They were just great movies.
Unfortunately, the Jumanji slot doesn’t feature the late great Robin Williams or any of the movie’s cast. It does, however, feature a unique slot design that sits in the center of the iconic Jumanji board game. Additionally, each of the slot’s features, and there are a lot of them, are based on some of the most iconic sequences from the movie.
Now, for the best part. Yes, you will get a chance to play the Jumanji board game. If you grab three or more scatter symbols, you’ll unlock a second-screen bonus game that is used to access one of three different free spins features.
Ridley Scott’s Gladiator was released more than 20 years ago. Despite its age, the moment when Gladiator removes his helmet and reveals to Caesar that he is Maximus Decimus Meridius still gives us chills.
Let’s start off with the bad news. Gladiator slot from Betsoft Gaming is not an officially licensed movie slot. However, it makes no attempt to hide the fact that it is based on the movie. Both Maximus’ iconic gladiator armor and helmet feature as symbols in the game. The slot also features the tigers that almost mauled Maximus during his battle with Tigris of Gaul.
It also offers a number of exciting bonus features, including a second-screen bonus game that pits the hero against the villain in the arena. If the hero wins, your wins could be HUGE!
Written by Charles Portis in 1952, True Grit is the story of a young girl searching for anyone who will help her to get revenge for the death of her parents. The book was adapted into a film in 1969 that featured John Wayne as Marshal Reuben J. Cogburn. In 2010, the mantel of Marshal Cogburn was taken up by Jeff Bridges in a reboot that also featured Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin.
Almost 11 years since the last movie, Nolimit City release the True Grit Redemption slot. Despite the name, characters, and plot seemingly having been directly lifted from the book, Nolimit City make little to no reference to its source material in its promotion of the game. However, considering how obvious the source material is, we’re counting this one.
In true Nolimit City fashion, True Grit Redemption slot is packed with bonus features including expanding reels, two different free spin bonus rounds, and the developer’s signature xNudge and xWays symbols. Additionally, the slot’s illustrations and animations are incredibly well executed. All in all, the slot is a solid adaptation.
The Jungle Books slot
Technically this one wasn’t based on a book… it was based on a collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling which is totally different, right? Plus, when you think of the Jungle Book, you don’t think about Kipling. You think about Disney’s The Jungle Book, which if you can believe was released in 1967! Yes, there was a live-action adaptation in 2016 but we don’t talk about that childhood-ruining monstrosity.
Despite very clearly being based on The Jungle Book, we assume that Yggdrasil added that “s” to the end of “Book” to avoid attracting the attention of the House of Mouse lawyers since it’s not an officially licensed product. However, if you’re a fan of the movie or you’re hipster enough to have read the books, this legal nonsense won’t get in the way of you enjoying a few spins with your favorite crew of talking animals.
The Jungle Books slot is, like all of Yggdrasil’s work, illustrated beautifully. Additionally, it is absolutely packed with features with each character getting a unique realm and set of bonus features. All in all, this is a great one to end on.
A Cinematic Theatre of Wins
The above slots are just a taste of what you’re in store for when you enjoy move night at BitStarz! Our cinematic theatre of wins offers some of your favorite movies as feature slots that you can enjoy. So, what are you waiting for? Take a seat and turn off your phone, the movie’s about to start!
