Jurassic Park MovieThe online gaming industry is always on the look out for anything that can used to inspire themes and ideas, which can be used for both new and existing games. One source that has been something of a gold mine for game developers has been successful movies and epic blockbusters. This is because as technology advanced, it was then possible to incorporate intricate bonus features, sound clips, HD video, 3D graphics and animation into near enough any online video slot machine.

Chances of success

There are literally thousands of online video slots games to enjoy at Unibet Casino; some become instant sensations and with any luck, can evolve into a timeless classic like Rainbow Riches. However, more often than not, most new online slot games do not become great favourites; and this is why game developers will use anything they can to give their game a better chance of being successful.

Utilizing blockbuster movie themes is the perfect way of attracting not only a core online casino audience, but also new players who would fancy playing a game, which has their favourite actor, actress and /or film as the main concept.

The Hitman

The Hitman movie was a massive success at the cinemas, and it was no surprise when Microgaming used the idea to create an exciting 5 reel, 15 payline video slot game. The game incorporates all of the best bits of the action movie like knives, guns and of the course the assassin. The game is the best in terms of crisp graphics, which blends perfectly with actual video and sound clips from the movie. Plus there is a huge range of bonus features like 18 free spins feature and the Contract bonus feature, where players need to execute one of the targets and collect a random prize. Most established and trusted online casino operators like Unibet, will always have the Hitman game as part of their listing.

The Ghostbusters

The Ghostbusters slot game was created and released by IGT, and is a five reel, 30 payline online slot machine that has been a favourite amongst the online casino players. The game is based on the 1984 movie which starred Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray; and has all the icons that we all vividly remember like the brightly coloured ghosts, green slime and  the proton guns. There are great bonus features like the Cash Award, Multipliers, Wild Reels, Extra Wilds and Free Spins.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

X-Men Marvel Comics

So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think 20th Century Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.

There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focuses on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.

Hit Next to see the eight mutants I think Fox should bring to the big screen next!
