The Best Movie Based Slots Of 2017
There have been some excellent slot games released this year but not many movie inspired slots. It was a big loss for movie slot fans when Marvel pulled their endorsement for their licensed slot games that were part of a massive progressive jackpot network.
Fortunately companies like NetEnt and Microgaming have not given up on movie themed slots. They produced Planet of the Apes and Phantom of the Opera, two of the best movie tie-ins of the last few years.
These games took their source material seriously and the developers knew how important it was to keep movie fans and slot fans happy with their efforts. With both these titles, NetEnt and Microgaming have more than succeeded in their task, just like they have in creating online roulette NZ games that thrill players around the world!
Planet Of The Apes
Taking its inspiration from the modern remakes, Planet of the Apes by NetEnt takes an original approach to online slots. It essentially combines two slot games into one, combining the two Planet of the Apes remakes in one themed slot. This gives this game 10 reels and 40 paylines. Most impressively of all is the fact that this game is mobile compatible. The screen can be a bit cramped but it is still very playable.
When it comes to special features, this slot is packed. For a start players can find wilds and stacked wilds on the reels that can be very rewarding. Since there are two movies and two slots combined into one here, players can look forward to two unique bonus features.
The Rise bonus feature awards you with wager coins based on how many human and ape characters are on the reels. The Dawn bonus feature makes all apes and humans turn into matching symbols. There is also additionally a free spins bonus game, randomly triggered respins and more. A great game even if you aren’t a fan of the original movie or its remakes.
Phantom Of The Opera
Inspired by the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Phantom of the Opera is a classic film and play. This slot is based on the recent remake of the original. Even though the remake was not a huge hit it should not put you off trying this slot. It features all your favourite characters from this classic story but best of all there is a selection of original music from the show which makes this slot well worth it.
As with any slot worth its salt, none of the design elements would matter if the bonus features did not live up to the promise of its theme. Phantom of the Opera is absolutely packed with bonus features. The main features here is the Music of the Night free spins feature which will give you 10 free spins and an up to 4x multiplier. There is also the Masquerade bonus, the Letter Bonus, the Chandelier bonus and stacked symbols.
Phantom of the Opera is an excellent example of a developer, in this case Microgaming, exploring a movie and its themes completely to create a rewarding and feature rich game experience for slot fans.
