When it comes to real money gambling at brick-and-mortar casinos as well as online betting outlets, slot machines remain the main draw for most players. The one-arm bandit has evolved over the years thanks to gaming companies such as IGT. Not only have the offerings been expanded, they come with state-of-the-art computer technology that enhances the gambling experience in both sight and sound and in some cases touch. Themes are a big part of that experience as each slot machine takes on a life of its own. Above all, the growing popularity of slot machines with a famous movie theme was examined in greater detail.

Millions of dollars are spent on big-time movie premiers and BILLIONS of dollars are gambled on slot machines online, so a marriage between the two makes perfect sense. Reliving the experience of a famous movie that captivated audiences on the big screen is just a natural progression for the top gaming software companies producing slot machines these days.  These machines not only celebrate these movies, they demonstrate the innovation that has taken place over the past several years in the casino industry. Slot machine players are demanding more from their real money gambling experience either on the casino floor or through an online mobile application on their handheld device. The top gaming companies have delivered with the latest and greatest in computer-generated graphics and audio effects.

When it comes to Las Vegas style slot machines with a movie theme, this report covered four machines that were at the top of the author’s list as a true aficionado of UK culture. Batman has always been an icon in pop culture, so a slot machine named The Dark Knight was at the top of the list. This collaboration between Microgaming and IGT is a 5-reel machine. The unique aspect of this game is that it can be found in both land-based casinos as well as in certain online applications. This was driven by the overall popularity of this movie as well as the entire Batman series. The jury remains out as to whether or not Christian Bale was the best actor to portray this superhero, but his version of Batman lives on in this slot machine.

If you love gangster movies, then there is a good chance that Scarface would rank high on your list in this movie genre. Net Entertainment is the architect behind this slot machine that immortalizes Al Pacino’s portrayal of gangster Tony Montana. This offering features sights and sounds from some of the best sequences in this iconic film. Movie series generate their own following of fans from one film to the next. One of the longest running series followed the life and times of boxer Rocky Balboa. The Rocky slot machine mimics this progression with characters from each of the films including Apollo Creed, Clubber Lang and Ivan Drago. The final movie on the list was Forest Gump. This is a 5-reel, 25 payline slot machine that offers its biggest payoff when Forest himself appears across all five reels.
