Today a movie themed online slot game would inevitably be a branded slot based either on blockbuster films or on celebrity movie stars. But there were movie themed slot games before the branded era as well and these depicted in general terms the various facets of film making. On the eve of the 85th Oscar awards this article reviews some of the old fashioned movie themed slot games.

The software provider Microgaming offers a slot game titled Star Appeal in its portfolio that focuses on the celebrity status of movie stars. The reels are set against a glittering background. The starlet is the wild symbol and offers the jackpot payout of 5,000 coins. The other thematic symbols are the agent, the still photographer, the starlet’s pet dog and an Oscar like statuette trophy. The Star Feature is triggered when three or more star symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The player is assured of 10 free spins at doubled payouts. In addition he can pick three stars on the second screen to win extra free spins, bonus credits or a special wild symbol. The special will turns all agent symbols during the free spins to wild starlets, thus increasing the payout potential. The free spins cannot be retriggered. Star Appeal also includes the optional Microgaming gamble game. Star Appeal can be played at online casinos like Gaming Club, All Jackpots and 7 Sultans.

Playtech offers an online slot game titled Cinerama that depicts the old fashioned way of movie making with symbols like the directors megaphone, the films script, the films reels, the headphones and the star awards. The camera is the wild symbol and it is also the symbol that awards a progressive jackpot. The Cinerama progressive jackpot pays once every three weeks on an average and the average hit is for $40,000. This movie themed online slot has two bonus games. The first game is a trip to the cinema where players choose which film they would like to see and win a bonus amount. In the second bonus game players get the chance of being the movie director and choose the leading man and the leading lady for their film. The game then moves to the awards ceremony. The players win a bonus amount based on how the movie has fared at the awards. Cinerama is live at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Casino Tropez.

Cryptologic offers a set of four movie themed slots called Movie Mayhem, each of which represents a different genre of movies. Silent Screen represents the silent era, Sunday Afternoon Classics represents the eternal classics rerun on Sunday afternoons, Fantasy Realm represents the magical world and Outta Space Adventure represents science fiction. All four slot games are linked to the same four tier progressive jackpot, which can be won through the same bonus game. The bonus game is triggered randomly. In it players have to select from six items found in movie theatres to win movie tickets. Which jackpot is won is determined by the number of tickets collected by the player. Four tickets award the largest of the four jackpots. Each Cryptologic Movie Mayhem slot also offers a free spins bonus round that is different for each game. These slot games can be played at online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino.
