Themed slots are not to everyone’s tastes, with some players believing the branding gimmick gets in the way of gameplay. Yet, some slots can have the best of both worlds, combining the fun of a well-known movie or tv show with the chance to hit some seriously big payouts making it a fun and potentially lucrative way to play.
Below are five of the best slots based on some of the biggest and best television shows ever to hit our screens.
Britain’s Got Talent
Playtech’s latest offering has arrived and, much like some of its creations around popular culture, it is based on one of the most watched television shows in the UK – Britain’s Got Talent. This 20-payline, five-reel video slot includes impressive bonus features and a wide coin range suitable for all budgets, with a free version of the game available also. It has two bonus events, one of which involves the player having to make it past the performance round in front of the judges, much like in reality. The Britain’s Got Talent casino slot is enjoyable, easy to play and would certainly appeal to ‘BGT’ fans.
Deal or No Deal: The Banker’s Riches
The game, by Endemol, doesn’t require much skill but is more complicated than the real thing. The Banker’s Riches is a twenty payline and 5 reel game with several bonus features. It also has a progressive jackpot, adding to the fun aspect of the game. The most valuable symbols – the ones you’re really after – include the famous mug, bank ledgers, the game’s circular centre point, the banker’s seal and even the banker himself. Overall the game is fun to play and with its three different bonus features and a progressive jackpot it should keep you entertained for hours on end.
With 5 reels and 20 paylines, and playable from 20p a spin on all devices, even Mulder and Scully would enjoy taking time out of their busy schedule to play this one. The game comes with multiplier wilds that combine to give you multipliers of up to 25x on each spin. Multipliers also apply in the Locking Rift Free Games feature where you can get up to 20 free spins. Visually the game is superb and coupled with the dramatic soundtrack, this is a good one to play.
American Dad! has 5 reels and 40 paylines. At 40p a spin and available on all devices, it’s an entertaining play. Characters from the show are featured, such as Stan, Roger, Francine and Hayley, to name a few. With up to 25 free spins on offer, it’s easy to get to grips with the functionality of the game. Stan is the highest value symbol giving you 250 coins for 5 across a payline. With the graphics and animations just like those from the show too, it’s brilliantly made.
Easily one of the most popular TV shows ever, thanks to Playtech, Tony Soprano and friends are here in a slot game version. This 5-reel 25 pay-line mafia masterstroke is incredibly fun to play. With prizes, bonuses and various features, this mafia based offering will bring a smile to the face of anyone who plays it, especially die-hard Sopranos fans. Clips from the show and characters such as Uncle June, Bobby Bacala and Johnny Sack are featured, and at just 25p a spin and the opportunity to win a huge jackpot of up to £500,000, this is an excellent slot game.
