Gump says, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get." This is exactly what happens in this free spins feature.

Betting Options (9)
The player can manipulate only two of the betting options, which reduce flexibility to some extent. The betting range is such that the slot game would not attract the very high rollers. The maximum total bet is only 500.00 credits.
Forrest Gump is connected to the five level Hollywood Jackpots progressive network. Despite this it offers an attractive first fixed jackpot of 5000 coins, which can get doubled if the combination is made with the help of wild symbols.
