Oscars Trigger Movie Slots Games

The nominations for the Oscars have been announced. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are vying for the top acting honors, though for different movies. Angelina has competition from Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet so this is a category to watch out for. As far as movies go The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button heads the list with 13 nominations. Slumdog Millionaire with ten nominations is not far behind. Slumdog has done well in the other awards given this year and holds the edge. If this has created a craving for the old classics that have ruled the Oscars, like Gone With The Wind, then check out Sunday Afternoon Classics slots.

Sunday Afternoon Classics is a progressive jackpot online slots game from Cryptologic. The progressive jackpot is linked to three other slots based on movies of different genres. The four together are known as the Movie Mayhem series. The game evokes memories of old romantic movies through symbols like a hero on a horse, a beautiful house, pink rose, pictures of a man and woman in heart shaped lockets, a heroine, an embracing couple and classically formed A, K, Q J, 10 and 9. The reels are set in a romantic open air ambience that changes appropriately as the time moves from dawn to night. The winning combinations are celebrated by animations like a girl dancing in a meadow and a couple romancing under the moonlight.

Sunday Afternoon Classics is a 5 reel, 25 payline online slot game with 24 winning combinations. The coin denomination varies from $0.01 to $20. The wild symbol is the heroine and the scatter symbol is the embracing couple. The wild symbol also triples payouts. The online slot has two bonus games. The bonus game on the reels offers 10 free spins at tripled payouts. It is however the bonus game on the second screen that takes the players to the theatre. Popcorn packets are lined up next to a popcorn vending machine. Players get to pick six of them. As each packet is clicked it bursts and spills the popcorn with golden light shining all around. From the light players get golden movie tickets that determine if they will play the bonus round. In the bonus round players get 25 free spins at doubled payouts. The soundtrack for the round creates an ambience of people chattering while waiting for the movie to begin.

The Oscar Awards ceremony will be held in four weeks time on the 22nd of February. That gives players time to check out one slot a week of the Movie Mayhem series. The other three online slot games are Fantasy Realm, Silent Screen and Outta Space Adventure. These can be played at Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino.
