Forrest Gump Review

The Forrest Gump online slot game is based on the Paramount Pictures movie of the same name. The slot game recreates the ambience of the movie through exciting audio visuals that will be loved by the fans of the movie. The introductory clip begins with the floating feather, which plays an important role in the movie as a symbol of luck. The introductory clip also shows some scenes from the movies including the famous football scene. The wild symbol is the Forrest Gump Poster and the scatter symbol is the Box of Chocolates. Portraits of Forrest Gump, his girl friend Jenny and army boss Dan Taylor appear as symbols on the reels. The other symbols are also connected with the movie such as Football, Army Helmet and Ping Pong Paddles.

The slot game has some excellent animations. The best is when three Chocolate symbols appear on the reels. The box opens with the famous line being recited "Life is like a box of chocolates". In the Forrest Gump Poster the feather moves across the symbol and in the Football symbol the ball starts bouncing. Though there is no background music in the base game, the musical score of the introductory clip is played during the bonus features. Read Full Review
