The 4 Best Slots Based on TV and Film

As some of the most expansive forms of gambling ever developed, online slots cover hundreds of themes, concepts, and ideas. Among the most popular of these are slots which derived from existing properties. Whether film or television, we want to take a look at just a few which have been making waves in the world of online casinos.

The Price is Right

Originating back 1956, The Price is Right is one of the best-established and respected game shows in the history of television. Featuring all of that trademark music you either hate or love, this slot interpretation of a classic comes with a range of bonus games including Cliff Hangers, Master Keys, and Plinko.

One of the best ways for Price fans to play online slot games, this entry is almost as popular in this form as it is in the traditional.

Who wants to be a Millionaire?

Another great game show, and another fantastic slot game. Who wants to be a Millionaire mirrors the fun of the base show, with the added benefit of actually being able to play from home. The standout factor of this game has to be the bonus scatter, which brings you to the free spins game.

During this game, players work their way up the Hot Seat ladder, which comes with the classic lifelines of 50:50, Phone a Friend, and Ask the Audience.

This game is such a great interpretation that some players have to turn off the music, as just as with the show it can build a little too much tension.

Spinal Tap

Based on the fictional band popularised in the 1984 mockumentary film This is Spinal Tap, this slot from Blueprint Gaming is far more professional than the subject matter would suggest. Incorporating some of their best hits and jokes, the Spinal Tap slot game openly boasts that it goes all the way to eleven.

As with the fake band themselves, a surprising amount of effort has gone into making this slot stand above other giants in the industry. In terms of animations, music, and bonuses, the Spinal Tap slot is easily one of the best, not just in licensed slots, but among them all.

Wheel of Fortune

Heading back to game shows for one last time, what could be a better fit than Wheel of Fortune? Operating by a spinning wheel, rather the spinning reels, this is a conversion match made in heaven.

So what does the slot have to offer? For a start, the base game is incredibly quick and easy to play, with very little waiting around. On the other hand, the bonuses in Wheel of Fortune lean entirely onto the show's legacy, letting players spin for themselves.

These bonuses can give prizes such as free spins, multipliers, and enormous individual payouts.

As the online slot market continues to grow, we expect the future will be filled with far more properties making the move to slot-based interpretations. Its likely more game shows will be among the first to make this leap, but there’s still no telling just how far the next generation could go.
