Slot Developers Take Inspiration from Action Movies

Slot developers are constantly on the lookout for fresh inspiration when it comes to producing new content. One of the ways that they have kept slot games popular over so many years is to use popular movies as themes to base them on. Leading slot game developers such as Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt have regularly adopted movie themes with great success as it’s a way to attract those players who loved the film originally.


Action movies are a great way to start. This is because they generally hold the attention a lot longer than other movie genres. This is usually due to the sound effect, music, animations and visuals used, with the movie theme being seamlessly incorporated which then produces an authentic experience; it’s sure to be a big hit with players. Action movies are never boring and mundane, and neither are their slot game versions so it really is win win for both the operator and the player.




The Terminator trilogy is one of the most recognisable film series’ ever made. The action adventure films which star Arnie fast became the kind of films that when you asked somebody if they had seen them, they had. The storyline sees Arnie as Terminator who us a cyborg assassin sent back from 2029 to 1984 for the purpose of killing Sarah Connor to prevent her son, who had not at the time been born, saving the world from machines.


The five reel slot game features the characters that you’d want it to feature as a fan. As you’d expect there are also the sorts of animations and bonus rounds to really get the adrenaline pumping as you look to win big. If the features are triggered, there are 1,024 ways to win too.


Jurassic Park


What can you say about Microgaming’s Jurassic Park slot game? It’s one of the best action movie slot adaptations around to date and one of the most popular on casino sites.


The movie franchise that began way back in 1993 has gone from strength to strength over the years with further releases, more in the pipeline and various other side projects. The plot involves a theme park with recreated dinosaurs, who break free and go on the rampage.


The slot game is actually one of a very small number, to use parallax scrolling which sees background images move slower than those in the foreground. Everything about this slot game oozes class as the visuals, music, animations and sound effects provide a truly authentic experience for players in a 5 reel game.


Tomb Raider


Tomb Raider sees Lara Croft explore dangerous ruins in various countries around the world. On her travels she encounters extreme danger and difficult puzzles as she aims to find what she is looking for while staying alive in the same process. Tomb Raider first made it onto the scene as a video game before being a hit at the box office, so you can see why Microgaming used it as a theme for a slot game.


The slot version basically allows players to spin the reels in the hope of finding the treasure that Lara is looking for. It’s a slot game that has been popular since it hit online casinos and this is down to its modern look as well as the potential of triggering bonus features. Oh and Lara herself is a big part of the game too, as you’d expect.
