4 Best Movie Based Slot Games

One of the best ways to spend a night out is by watching a movie at the movie theatre. It would be even better if you could get paid while watching these movies. It becomes sort of possible with movie-themed slots. There are a wide variety of slots that you can play that contain licenses like Batman, Rocky, Scarface and Nightmare on Elm Street. These 4 slots are some of the best out there, and it isn’t just because they’re based on popular movies.

Nightmare on Elm Street

Being a big horror fan myself, stumbling across this was exciting. The 30 pay-line, five-reel slot machine was designed and created by 888 software. You’ll find that all of the classic characters are here including Jesse, Nacey, Quentin, Kris and of course, Freddy Krueger.

Probably the biggest twist in this game is that the appearance of Freddy brings joy instead of gut-wrenching fear. Five Freddy’s in a row will award a 10,000x to your line bet. He is also integral to getting the jackpot bonuses, which include two progressive jackpots.

The Dark Knight/Batman

This five-reel slot machine was a group development effort by IGT and Microgaming. There are minimal differences between the IGT developed game and the Microgaming one, with the exception being that IGTs version is only available in casinos, while the Microgaming version is only available online. Multiple slot games can only be played online, and websites like Casumo Casino deliver on this entertainment straight from your home.

You can win a lot at the Dark Knight slot machine, and the bonuses pop quite frequently. There are 243 winning combinations with 14 symbols. Since this slot machine is based on the Dark Knight movie, Rachel Dawes and Harvey Dent are winning symbols, as well as card faces like king, queen and ace. Batman is, of course, the highest winning symbol. He’ll give you 2,000 credits if you manage to match five of his symbols.

Scatter symbols play a large part in this slot machine, and if you’re lucky, you could win a large prize pot if you hit five symbols across all reels. This will earn you a minimum of 15k credits. Bonuses mostly happen at random. Joker or the Batman could appear on the screen at any time and give you cash prizes or Free Spins. Speaking of Free Spins, there is a possibility of randomly getting a roulette that features those, but also a chance at the progressive jackpot.


Who doesn’t like an underdog story? Playtech designed this 25 pay-line, five-reel slot machine that sets you head to head with many of Rocky Balboa’s boxing competitors. Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang, Ivan Drago, Adrian, and Rocky can all be matched for high returns. Symbols that spell ROCKY can also be matched, either individually or with each other. Matching ROCKY across five reels will earn you a multiplier of 5.

If you’re lucky enough to get the Knockout Bonus Round when Bonus Glove symbols appear, you will get in the ring with Apollo Creed, Ivan Drago, and Clubber Lang. Rocky will fight 10 rounds. The longer you go, the more bonuses you’ll get.


Say hello to my little friend with this 20 pay-line, five-reel slot machine by Net Entertainment. Iconic characters like Chi Chi, Elvira, Manny, Montana and Tony, can be matched, with Tony giving the highest returns. Guns, weapons and money can be matched as well, with drugs being left out likely for a good reason.

Scarface slots are generous with their free spin bonuses, and they unlock if you fill reels, 2, 3, or 4 with the wild symbol. If you get a full stack of wilds, you’ll help Tony fight off a bunch of gunmen while a spinning reel appears on the screen. If you want to play hands-free, you can with the autoplay feature that can be stopped at any time.
