With the rise of online casinos, one of the most interesting forms of play are the slot machines.
While there are the more traditional variety of games, there are also ones that are based on movies.
Here is a list of ten that have caught our eye as the best movies that became slot machines…
The Dark Knight Rises
It should be no surprise that Batman would make it onto this list. His constant battles against enemies such as the Joker make for interesting games and plenty of “combat” to get the perfect lines. The Dark Knight Rises features Batman’s battle against Bane, with the help of Cat Woman and the ever dependable Alfred. A fitting closure to Christian Bale’s tenure as the Bat, this made for a very entertainment slot experience too.
With The Avengers as our second pick, you may see a theme in the style of film picked for slot games. The Avengers is another good pick because it features a whole set of super heroes doing battle to save the Earth against alien invasion. Featuring not only Iron Man, Captain America, and the Incredible Hulk, we also saw Thor come to earth to help in the battle. Arguably one of Marvel’s most successful films, The Avengers is a classic that easily fits into the gaming world.
Iron Man has made it into gaming in many forms, but it was probably Iron Man 3 which made for the better slot game. Iron Man as a movie though was arguably better in his first appearance which set him up as one of the main superheroes in the Marvel movie universe. The adventures of Tony Stark, will always entire movie goers, especially when he is played by Robert Downey Jnr.
With Iron Man doing battle with Captain America in his third outing on the silver screen it seems only fitting to include his movie on this list too. Another success for Marvel, the tale of America’s greatest hero was a big hit when it was taken from the comic book pages and brought to the big screen.
The Big Lebowski
Moving away from the superheroes, a perfect “hero” of another kind would be The Dude himself, The Big Lebowski. The story of a laid bag White Russian drinking bowler who gets mixed up in an extortion plot may at first not seem like the best movie to use for a game. The Big Lebowski slot though is a success because of The Dude himself, played by Jeff Bridges.
It should come as no surprise that Scarface would be on this list, another much loved character, but for different reasons than The Dude. Al Pacino’s portrayal of Tony Montana is iconic and his rise to the top of the criminal world is a perfect example of where money can get you, and how it can destroy you. The famous line from this movie is “The World is Yours” and any game that includes that line will entice any player to try to win big.
This list is very action orientated, and it is obvious why when we are looking at games. The Story of Maximus and his quest for revenge is full of drama, and makes for the perfect action movie. One of Russell Crowe’s most iconic roles it comes as no surprise that this movie is one that helped him rise high in the ranks of Hollywood’s best actors.
Another movie based in the past, The Mummy may not be Oscar winning material as Gladiator was, but it still makes for a fun time. Featuring not only the rise of The Mummy himself but also all kinds of Egyptian monsters and curses, even though a remake is on its way this is one movie that many fans still remember fondly.
The Wizard of Oz
When listing the best movies, even if the focus is with something like slot games, it comes as no surprise really that The Wizard of Oz would make it on this list. The story of Dorothy and her adventure along the Yellow Brick Road is one we’ve all grown up with, making it instantly recognisable to us all.
Games thrive off action in movies, so what better movie than Jurassic Park to make it onto this list. The story of a Dinosaur theme park where the ancient reptiles take back control of their surroundings is perfect for any game format.
This is just a small list of some of the better movies used for gaming material. We’re sure that you’ve all got your favourite, but did it make our list?
