Movies Take Lead Role On The Slots

A night out at the movies is a favorite pastime for people all over the world but what if there was another way to enjoy the thrills and spills of cinematic action in the comfort of your own home? Big deals have been made between movie makers and game developers to bring the official soundtracks and characters to life in the shape of online slots. It’s a match made in heaven for movie lovers with a taste for the gaming life and it looks like the casinos have found a box office hit of their own. Take a seat and grab some popcorn as we look through some of the most popular movie slots available online today.


Oliver Stone’s classic based on the Vietnam War comes to life in this 5-reel slot game. The movie picked up 4 Academy Awards when it was released back in 1986 so the game has a lot to live up to. The Vietnamese jungle forms the backdrop to the game and the dog tag Platoon logo is instantly recognizable. The big reason why we love this game so much is because the game includes five of the main characters from the film as slot symbols – Charlie Sheen aka Chris Taylor is the main character and you can also find the likes of Sergeant Elias Grodin, Sergeant Bob Barnes, Big Harold and King. Landing combinations of any of the characters, tank, and military chopper symbols will bring you cash prizes and free spins with Charlie Sheen’s symbol offering up to 1,000 times your initial bet. Platoon is armed and ready for you to spin and win!


The family classic from 1995 has been wonderfully recreated as an online slot. The slick graphics and jungle-themed soundtrack is a nice touch but, of course, it’s all about the Jumanji board game. The main bonus round is activated when you spin three or more Jumanji board game scatter symbols and you then throw the dice to move your token around the board. You’re instantly taken back to that famous scene in the movie and all eyes are on the board to find out where you will next land. Instead of disappearing into the jungles of Jumanji, you get offered a fair alternative of free spins, cash prizes, extra rolls of the dice, and the mystery feature! The Jumanji slot game is bursting with features like Wild Stampede and Monkey free spins. The animal-based symbols help to keep that jungle theme alive and all in all, the Jumanji slot is a wild and wonderful gaming experience that offers plenty of opportunities to win some big cash prizes.

Planet of the Apes

Planet of the Apes has to be one of the best-looking slots around and with the help of 20th Century Fox, the game cleverly incorporates two movies into one game! It follows the life of Caesar, the ape army leader, across the story lines of both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. As you would expect, the graphics are amazing and the background changes with scenes from both of the Rise and Dawn releases. You even get treated to actual footage from the movies as you follow Caesar through the story line. The multiple features on offer keeps the entertainment flowing and the Rise and Dawn free spins features have the potential to shower you with cash prizes. Visually, the game is stunning and the gameplay keeps you and Caesar on your toes! The winning combination of movie scenes and big cash prizes is exactly what you want from a movie slot and Planet of the Apes delivers that in magnificent style.


One of the all-time classics comes back to haunt the online casinos with its own slot game and all the big characters from the movie are involved. Slimer makes a big appearance in the game and comes to life in the Cash Award, Extra Wilds, and Wild Reels features where you can win prizes up to 30 or 40 times your original bet. Video clips of the movie are scattered around the game and the iconic character symbols keep you firmly rooted in the Ghostbusters world. All players should be looking to get into the the Ballroom Busters Bonus and Stay Puft Bonus features because they offer the biggest wins in the game. Ghostbusters has always been a classic and this game certainly does the movie justice. It’s a popular choice because the chance to get slimed online is just too tempting for most slot players!


Anchorman The Legend of Ron Burgundy was an instant comedy hit when it was released in 2004. The slot game brings that ridiculousness to life perfectly with a strong lineup of characters and some brilliant feature names to boot! Ron, Brick, Champ, Brian, and Baxter all take a headline appearance on the game’s background and you can’t help but smile back at the infamous news gang. The main symbols are made up of whiskey tumblers, cowboy hats, news vans, and the four amigos Ron, Champ, Brian, and Baxter. Look out for the perfectly named Nice Jackpot, Very Nice Jackpot, and the Really Good Jackpot for big cash rewards. However, it’s the bonus features that are the main attraction here and each one relates to one of the four main movie characters. You’ve got Ron’s Giant Free Games feature, the Whammy! Free Games feature, Brick’s Weather Wheels feature, and of course, the Sex Panther Pick feature! All of these offer free spins, cash prizes, and multipliers a’plenty. You can’t not love Anchorman and the same goes for the slot game. It comes with just the right amount of stupidity that you would expect when Ron Burgundy is involved… which is, of course, a lot!
