Play Movie Online Slots On Oscar Weekend

February 26, 2016

The Oscar weekend obviously has the movie themed online slots drawing traffic. There are plenty of branded slot games based on blockbuster Hollywood films that are immensely popular. But if you are the type of player that is nostalgic about movie making of the past then there are two fabulous titles from the software provider Microgaming. You can play these video slots at online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and Roxy Palace.

Star Appeal was released quite some years back and will take you back in time when stars like Clarke Gable and Vivien Leigh ruled Hollywood. The reels are set against a glittering background suited to the epic movies made at that time. The actress is the wild symbol and awards the highest line payouts. The other thematic symbols are agent, still photographer, pet dog and statuette trophy. The Star Feature, which is triggered by three or more scattered star symbols, starts you with 10 free spins at doubled payouts. Then you pick three stars on the second screen to win additional free spins, bonus credits or a special wild symbol. The free spins cannot be retriggered. Star Appeal also includes the optional Microgaming gamble game.

Golden Era online slot is a more recent release and will take you back even further. The high paying symbols are leading pair, hero, heroine, film critic and newspaper photographer. The low paying symbols are also thematic and include limousine, award trophy, old fashioned camera, spool of reel, hand prints on cement and cinema tickets. The Golden Era logo is the wild symbol and the clapper board is the scatter symbol. When the bonus feature is triggered, you can choose from one of two options. In the free spins feature you are awarded 12 free spins with a new concept called Embracing Wilds. In the first free spin the hero appears as an expanded wild on reel 1 and the heroine as an expanded wild on reel 5. In the second spin they shift to reels 2 and 4 respectively. In the third free spin they meet in an embrace on reel 3. The Embracing wilds multiply the payouts by two times. The sequence then keeps repeating through the remainder of the free spins. The bonus game on the second screen is called the Double Feature Bonus. 12 classic film posters are displayed and you get up to 10 picks or till you expose the booby. Each pick will award random bonus credits. If you reveal the 2x symbol then all the payouts will be doubled.
