Most of the online casino’s top software developers have at least dabbled with the creation of video slots with a popular movie as the theme.
Microgaming has done quite well with games like The Dark Knight Rises, The Terminator, Psycho, Laura Croft’s Tomb Raider, Lord of the Rings, and Bridesmaids among others. Netent has likewise been successful with movie-themed games like Jumanji, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Conan the Barbarian, Scarface, Planet of the Apes, and The Invisible Mam.
While both those companies are to be congratulated for developing top-notch movie-themed video slots, the King of the movie-themed video slot software developers has to be Playtech. It was almost 20 years ago that Playtech released its first Marvel Comics video slot game. Since then, the company has developed no less than 20 different video slots that movie lovers would recognize and want to play.
BTW: All of these games, plus live games with live dealers creating action are available at licensed online casino websites throughout the UK.
It’s All About the Marvel Superheroes
It’s just possible that many years back, Playtech was able to look into a crystal. It’s the only explanation for the company’s undying loyalty to the Marvel Comics brand. Over the years, Playtech has succeeded in creating some of the best movie-themed games the online casino industry has ever seem. The company’s library of Marvel games includes Spiderman, X-Men, Iron Man I, II and III, Blade, Daredevil, Elektra, Ghost Rider, The Incredible Hulk, Avengers, Captain America, Fantastic Four and Wolverine. It’s noteworthy that as movies, these titles have pulled in tens of billions of dollars worldwide, easily one of the most lucrative movie franchises in movie history.
The Marvel Mystery Progressive Jackpot Game
As if providing video slot enthusiasts with access to some really great Marvel Comics superhero slots isn’t enough, Playtech took things one step farther. The company took all its Marvel games and tied them altogether in one exciting progressive jackpot game called the Marvel Mystery Game.
No matter where slot players are in the world or what online casino they might be using, having access to one of Playtech’s Marvel games gives them automatic access to the Marvel Mystery Game. From every slot game, a portion of every Euro or dollar spent will be siphoned off into the game’s progressive jackpot. At random, slot players are given the opportunity to try for one of the game’s four progressive jackpots (Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power).
Once selected, the player merely keeps selecting spots from a 20 spot matrix until they match 3 of the same jackpots. At the highest level, the progressive jackpot often exceeds 1.0 million euros.
Other Movie Games from Playtech
Playtech’s success with movie slots is not limited to Marvel Comics. The company has also developed and introduced movie-themed games based on the following movies: The Mummy, Grease, Gladiator, Superman the Movie, The Mask of Zorro, Rocky and King Kong.
If you don’t have time to go to the movies, you can always let Playtech bring the movies to you through your mobile devices with the company’s impressive list of movie-themed slots.
