Movies and games go hand in hand. The two industries are often overlapping. It’s either a video game that is released as a companion to a movie, expanding its reach, or a video game is adapted to the big screen (with variable success). But there is one game category where being based on a movie is almost always a guarantee for popularity: slot machines. And this is the category I want to explore today.
Slot machines are maybe the most versatile games in the world. They can be themed almost freely. This is perhaps the reason why there are so many of them – the Royal Vegas alone has hundreds of differently themed games in its library. And playing these games on mobile – the fastest growing gaming platform ever – has never been easier. All you need to do is go online, get yourself a microgaming Royal online app and start playing in no time. Or, if you are an Android user, you can simply head over to the Royal Vegas website and dig into the tens of games available there.
My personal favorite – and my feelings are shared by thousands of players all over the world – is Microgaming’s Game of Thrones slot machine, available at the Royal Vegas mobile platform. The game was the most anticipated one in 2014. While no major characters from the series are featured on its reels (these are killed off one by one on screen anyway), the game can truly take its player in, creating an atmosphere worthy of the epic series.
Another one to make it to the top of my list is NetEnt’s Aliens slot. I’m a huge Alien fan, following the series since its humble beginnings in 1979. The game might not be as action-packed as many other movie-based titles, but it surely creates an atmosphere creepy enough to be worthy of the movies. It even has a side game that features a Colonial Marine shooting facehuggers and full-grown xenomorphs, that adds an extra twist to the game.
Last, but not least, here is the slot machine loved by the highest number of players: Playtech’s The Avengers. Based on the successful movie franchise (not on the comic books or the animated series released in the past), the game reunites its players with all the most popular characters, including the Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and even Nick Fury, played by the inimitable Samuel L. Jackson. To make it even more attractive, the Avengers mobile slot has a hefty jackpot attached to it, which grows with each spin by each player. Exciting and rewarding at the same time.
