Movies, together with sports and TV, in general, are one of the most integral parts of modern culture. People are expected to have seen the most popular and iconic films of the current, but also the previous decades. You will often hear movie references in-jokes, small talk and casual conversations, and if you’re not familiar with at least the most renowned films, or at least their most popular dialogue.
Films have an effect on multiple aspects of culture, starting from charades and other social games where movie knowledge is required, and up to a range of video games that are based on popular films. Action films are famously known for being an inspiration for many developers of conventional video games, but other movies of other genres also found their way into video games. There have been quite a few online slots based on movies, and we’re going to have a look at the most popular movie-themed slots.

King Kong slot has two bonus features – King Kong Goes Ape and King Kong Smash. The maximum amount that you can win in the King Kong slot is 7.500 times your bet per line, whereas the maximum stake per spin is limited to £150.
Another iconic film, Dirty Dancing has been referred to as one of the greatest films in history and definitely the most popular dancing-themed film, it is no surprise that there is an online slot based on it as well.

Both of the other films listed above are very popular, but it is safe to say that the Godfather is in a different category – a category of its own. This slot has been developed by Gamesys, a company that might not be up to the level of Playtech or NetEnt, but nevertheless, a company that has launched quite a few remarkable games before, with the Godfather being one of their key accomplishments. The choice of symbols is very refreshing, it will immediately make you recall this iconic Coppola film, you will see the epic oranges, the Maxim gun, the meatball spaghetti, and of course some of the characters as the main symbols.

Hasta la Vista baby – it would’ve been strange not to have a game based on the highest-grossing film of 1991, a film popular with generations of youngsters and still considered one of the greatest action films.

The slot based on the all-time classic featuring Schwarzenegger was developed by Microgaming, another leading online slots provider. The slot features the original film characters on the reels as symbols, as well as card suits and the game has two bonus features – T-800 Vision and Free Spins.

The maximum amount that you can wager per spin is limited to £1,250 and the maximum in-game prize is 10,000 coins, i.e. 10,000 times your wager per line.
