When you love something, you want it to be in your world as much as possible (new books about superheroes or online pokies in Australia for real money.
We know people who would change any item of their clothing for a T-shirt with their favourite Marvel character, even if they already have a backpack with the same face. It’s fascinating how cinema gets under our skin, makes us passionate about a story, how it touches imagination and impacts the way we think. Nobody would argue that today’s culture is nothing without films and TV shows.
Movies, which are basically non-existent fractures of someone’s fancy, are powerful enough to shape the physical reality too. It’s a huge branch of the global economy that generates profit, creates job opportunities, unites communities, and sparks international debates. Look at all the tie-ins, which are everywhere: kids’ coloring books, hoodies, T-shirts, MacDonald’s Happy Meals, and video games… People love sharing their passion, and they want it to cover all parts of their lives. So, the trend is only going to progress.
Anyways, the film buffs who are obsessed with a newly released blockbuster or reminisce about their all-time favourite classic might find our pokie list interesting. Those who don’t see themselves gambling for real money can still try these titles out as all of them have free demo versions and can be viewed as another video or mobile game.
1. Basic Instinct
The thriller of 1992 starring Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas needs no introduction. One of the leading game developers, IsoftBet, couldn’t pass by the legendary movie and created a themed online pokie that was more than well-received.
The slot features 5 reels, 243 paylines, and an RTP (Return to Player Percentage) of 95.76%. The pokie has all the gambler’s favourite extras: wild and scatter symbols, free spins, and bonus games.
It’s a progressive slot whose biggest jackpot payout until now has been $1,500,000.
The enigmatic character of Sharon Stone has surely inspired not only video game providers but also hundreds of women all over the world. That’s why thinking of the writer Catherine Trammel from ‘Basic Instinct’ gave us an idea to list a few more pokie titles that could be especially appealing to ladies: Bridesmaids (by Microgaming), Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs (by Microgaming), Sex and the City (by IGT).
2. Batman begins
A gentleman in the black cloak hiding half of his face and fighting for the good cause – who on Earth doesn’t know the guy? Playtech, a reputable game provider, seems to be among thousands of Batman’s fans. Enjoy their 5-reel progressive pokie with 20 paylines and an RTP of 95.11%.
Slot collection by Playtech is full of Superhero stories. If you are also into them, go for the titles like The Dark Knight, Superman II, Man of Steel, Avengers, Iron Man 3, Green Lantern, Justice League.
While we are still on the topic of strong men who love wearing masks and flying, let’s talk about yet another Superman-inspired online pokie brought to this world by NextGen Gaming. You can play this 5-reel slot with 50 paylines on any device: PCs, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. In addition to the theme, gamblers enjoy generous multipliers, wild symbols, and free spins the most.
4. Ghostbusters (by IGT)
‘If there’s something strange in your neighbourhood, who you gonna call?…’
The voice inside your head probably didn’t just finish the lines without a problem but also sang them (and possibly played the music as well). Ghosts, guns, the white car, and handsome professional monster hunters – this time it’s your turn to catch them.
The slot features 5 reels and 30 paylines, wilds, scatters and multipliers, free spins, and bonus games. The RTP that developers offer is 94.5%.
The other cool guys’ stories reflected in pokie themes are Rocky (by iBetSoft), Terminator Genisys (by Playtech), Highlander (Microgaming).
Space travelling and interstellar adventures stir something inside everyone’s mind creating a perfect breeding ground for movies and TV shows.
James Cameron’s science-fiction hit of 1986 began a franchise, received awards, and thrilled millions of citizens of the planet Earth. The online slot by NetEnt with its top-notch 3D graphics and atmospheric out-of-this-world music gives players a chance to immerse into the unknown again. The game offers 5 reels and 15 paylines, 3 levels, and a chance to snatch the jackpot.
Other space-themed slots that are definitely worth your attention are Planet of the Apes (by NetEnt) and Star Trek (WMS Gaming).
6. Pink Panther
Colourful drawn worlds are another source of fun ideas for video game developers. A fitting example is the Pink Panther pokie created by Playtech. Bright and entertaining, this slot has 5 reels, 40 paylines, wild and scatter symbols, bonus rounds, and an RTP of 93.99%.
Other cartoon stories borrowed by pokie creators are Beauty and the Beast (by Yggdrasil), Rango (iBetSoft), The Wizard of Oz (WMS), Family Guy (by IGT).
7. Game of Thrones
Cinema critics used to look down on TV shows in the past. And now they wouldn’t dare say even one condescending thing. TV shows have become powerful and elaborate. Game of Thrones, for instance, smashed the ratings and shifted the perception of the genre. Fans of the series would appreciate a quality online slot inspired by their favourite fantasy world. 5 reels, 243 paylines, and an RTP of 95%. The highest win up until now has been $121,000.
Other TV series that became a part of the gambling world are The Big Bang Theory and Walking Dead.
Gladiator is a true crowd-pleaser, and we don’t sarcastically mean the job. If you watched the Oscar-winning story about a real fighter who can’t be broken once, it would stay in your heart forever.
The themed 5-reel slot by Playtech offers gamblers 30 ways to win, free spins, and bonus rounds.
Gladiator is undoubtedly a big movie hit. The other legends that slot creators have brought back in their products are Forrest Gump, Titanic (by Bally), the Matrix (by Playtech), Avatar (by Center Stage).
9. Jurassic Park (by Microgaming)
This game appeared on the market at the same time the movie was released – back in 2014. In 2021, the pokie was remastered and acquired a more up-to-date look in terms of graphics and video effects. The video slot features 5 reels, 243 paylines, and an RTP of 96.67%.
If you love animals as much as we do, be it a deadly dinosaur or a fluffy bunny, do check out the following pokies: King Kong, Jumanji, Ace Ventura.
10. The Mummy: Books of Amun Ra
We’ve decided to finish with one of the most anticipated titles of 2021. Playtech released a pokie based on the Mummy movie in 2012, and it looks like they are getting a sequel ready. The slot is going to have 5 reels, 20 fixed expandable paylines, and a promising RTP of 95.97%. A little bird told us that the jackpot might reach 10,000x (times your initial bet).
