When it comes to casino games, slots can perhaps be considered ones for older people, as younger gamblers often choose to play more skill-based games. However in recent years, online casinos and the manufacturers of slots have been looking to combat this image by going to great efforts to provide online slots that are more interactive and appealing. Many of these are based on popular movie franchises and this article will pick out some of the best of these.
One of the most iconic Hollywood movies of the modern era is The Dark Knight, which was released in 2008 and directed by British director Christopher Nolan. This second part of his Batman trilogy saw the Caped Crusader played by Christian Bale take on Heath Ledgers Joker and grossed a mighty $1,005 Billion at the worldwide box office. With its cult status and huge popularity, a slot spin-off was guaranteed and Microgaming delivered with a five-reel, 243 pay line effort. The reels are themed with images such as the Batman logo, the Joker and Harvey Dent, while the graphics throughout are superb. It has the Cinematic Spins feature that shows you clips from the movie when you bet, and the bonus game requires you to pick either the Joker or Batman to play in order to try and win one of the progressive jackpots. Another great slot game based on a movie is the Hulk Slot, which is another five-reel affair this time featuring up to 50 pay lines. It is based on the 2008 film which starred Edward Norton as the Hulk and detailed the origin story of the character, showing how scientist Bruce Banner became infected with gamma radiation that made him into the Hulk. While the film was a reasonable success at the box office, the slot has been a smash, with its themed reels including the Hulk, police cars and helicopters and classy graphics. The key aim is to get the Hulk icon on the third reel, to activate the Expanding Hulk bonus feature, but getting three Hulk logo icons on the reels will get you free spins and a shot at multiplying your payout.
One of the real smash hit success film franchises of recent years has been Iron Man, and it began with the 2008 film that showed how playboy billionaire electronics genius Tony Stark played by Robert Downey Jr went from being an amoral weapons manufacturer to superhero Iron Man. It was a massive worldwide hit and has spawned two equally popular sequels, as well as a slot from Playtech. It is very much themed around the movie with both Downey Jrs Stark and Scarlett Johanssons Black Widow on the reels as well as Iron Man. The theme is particularly well realised in this slot as we get movie clips before the game starts as well, while the bonus game is called Missile Attack and sees Iron Man have to shoot missiles out of the sky winning you a prize for each one you manage.
These are some of the best slots that are bringing younger movie fans to the online casinos.
