Slots based on movies have been popular amongst online players in the UK for years, and are called Blockbuster slots. They are produced in partnership with film studios and often have beautiful translations of cinematic tales and adventures on the reels. These slot games treat players to a sense of nostalgia combined with some excellent blockbuster wins. Some players even choose their UK online casino purely for the Blockbuster slot games that they have on offer.

Many players will have fond memories of playing the Marvel Comic Slot games from Playtech and Cryptologic. These were slots like Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Wolverine and many others. However, in 2017, they disappeared from the online casinos and players were left wondering why they were all removed.

It turns out that in 2009 the Walt Disney Empire bought Marvel Entertainment for £2.5 billion and they did not want the Walt Disney name associated with gambling, as the Company is opposed to gambling in any form. It was also a well-known fact that they did not want casinos in Florida, USA.

However, Disney could not immediately remove the slot games from online casinos, as many casinos had licensing agreements in place. Therefore, they waited until the licensing agreements were coming to an end, and this is when they refused to renew the contracts. The result of this was that the casinos had to remove the full range of Marvel Comic Slot games from their portfolio.

This was good news for DC Comics, as the online casinos replaced many of the Marvel Slots with DC Comic Slots. These were popular titles such as Batman and Cat Woman Cash, Superman the Movie, Green Lantern, Jack Hammer and many more.

There have also been many other slot games based on movies and tv shows such as Dirty Dancing, American Idol, Beauty and the Beast, Family Guy and the iconic Game of Thrones.

Listed below is 5 of the most popular slot games based on movies.

Jurassic Park Slot

The Jurassic Park movie was a game-changer for the movie industry in terms of special effects. Moreover, it succeeded in making audiences believe Dinosaurs were alive and well and living among us. The Jurassic Park Slot by Microgaming is a five-reel, 243 payline slot with an RTP of 96.67%. It is spectacular in terms of graphics and one of the few video slots on the market to use parallax scrolling effects.

However, keep your eyes peeled for the T- Rex Alert Mode which appears for six spins and adds up to 35 Wild symbols to the reels.
