Have you ever registered for an online casino and stared at the wall of video slots to choose from, not knowing which one to pick? Since we are presented with so many alternatives, the decision process can be much more challenging than intended.

Our suggestion is to make your options tangible by narrowing them down based on your interests. If you are interested in movies you are in luck – the world of film is constantly used to inspire new themes for video slots. If you decide to play one of these branded games, based on the most significant movies, you’ll have narrowed down your alternatives vastly.

Yet, you will still have quite a few options, so let’s take a look at some of the more popular options that we would like to suggest.

Jurassic Park

If you haven’t already browsed to see if your favourite movie has been turned into a video slot, you should probably do so. There are more slots, or pokies as they are called in New Zealand, based on films than you might think. One of our favourites is the Jurassic Park slot.

The Jurassic Park video slot, from Microgaming, is based on Steven Spielberg’s movie with the same name from 1993. The game features several of the main characters from the film, including Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie (Laura Dern), and Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum).

The characters show up as symbols along with some dinosaurs, and the reels appear in front of a jungle background.

Gladiator

Another one of our favourite slots based on movies is the game, Gladiator Jackpot. It is the slot based on Ridley Scott’s movie from 2000 that won five Oscars.

The game features a background image of the Colosseum and, as with the Jurassic Park slot, the symbols are made up by the movie’s main characters.

Russell Crowe as Maximus, Joaquin Phoenix as Commodus and Connie Nielsen as Lucilla all show up on the reels.

Ted

It’s not only the vast blockbusters, filled with action and adventure, that get turned into video slots. If you are a fan of the comedy genre, we would like to recommend the Ted slot, based on Seth MacFarlane’s film from 2012 about a living teddy bear.

The game has a fun design that matches the tone of the movie and features sound snippets from MacFarlane, in the voice of Ted himself.

More suggestions

There are many, many, more slots with different themes based on movies. If none of the above suggestions sounds interesting, you could try out slots based on films such as Top Gun, Terminator 2, Man of Steel, King Kong, Dirty Dancing and Ghostbusters, to name a few.

If you’re not a fan of movies you don’t have to worry, when it comes to video slots, there are themed slots in almost every category you could imagine.

From the world of entertainment, slots based on music acts are extremely popular and, if you prefer TV series to movies, you can find slots based on hit shows such as Game of Thrones, Peaky Blinders, Family Guy and many more.
