There are many casino games which are based on specific themes such as television shows, sports, music, Egypt, Rome and mystical creatures. However, there are also many casino games which have taken inspiration from films. A good example can be found at bigtimegamingfreeplay.com. If you scroll down the homepage it will not take you very long before you come across a slot game which is based on a film.
The Expendables Megaways is a good example and this slot game, as the name suggests, is based on the film called The Expendables. On the reels of this game you will find many of the stars from the film including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Dolph Lundgren. Other casino games which have been based on films include Planet of The Apes, Jurassic World, Terminator 2, Paranormal Activity, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Ghostbusters, Lord of the Rings, Casino Royale, Grease, Platoon, Top Gun and Rocky.
These are all good example of film based casino games but is there another film that could be adapted into a casino game?
One of the most obvious films that could be adapted into a casino game is Star Wars. This is one of the most popular film series in history yet there is not a Star Wars slot machine available online. There were once Star Wars original trilogy-themed slot machines in Las Vegas and they featured commercially licensed titles from Lucasfilm. However, these have since been removed with many people believing the purchase of the Star Wars franchise by Disney as being the major reason.
Therefore, it is very unlikely we are going to see a Star Wars themed casino game in the near future. However, imagine how popular it would be with Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2, Yoda, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia on the reels? There could also be room for lightsabers and ships such as the Millennium Falcon.
Another fictitious and mystical world which would lend itself perfectly to online casino games is Harry Potter. Some people may believe this series of films was created only for kids but the adults who Have watched them and read the books know differently. While there are plenty of slot games available featuring Wizards and magic, nothing beats the world of Harry Potter. With characters including Dumbledore, Sirius Black, Snape, Hagrid, Hermione, Ron and Harry himself, this would surely be one of the most anticipated casino games ever to be released?
Another candidate for a film that could be adapted into a casino game is the Bourne series of films. These starred an American who was found floating adrift in the Mediterranean Sea with two gunshot wounds in his back. The spy action thrillers follow the life of Jason Bourne who is suffering from extreme memory loss as he attempts to find out his real identity. Think guns, romance, grit and intrigue and you have the makings of a cracking themed casino game.
