Slot Machines Inspired By Horror Movies

Slot machines are played by millions of people, in both real life and online form, on a daily basis around the globe. One thing that became apparent is the need to keep things fresh and to come up with ideas to keep players coming back and also try to attract new ones in the same process. One of the ways this has been done is by basing slot games on themes. One of the most successful themes so far has been movies.

There are a lot of people out there who have a particular penchant for horror movies and also horror based video games. So this was an ideal theme to base slot games on as it would certainly appeal to the mass audience. With that, top slot game developers began introducing slots based on horror movies for online casino operators like Unibet to offer all their members.

Here are just a few:


Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is one of the most recognisable horror movies ever made. It involves an everyday office worker stealing a large quantity of cash from her employer and running away with it to start a new life. Stopping at The Bates Motel proves to be a big mistake for her. NextGen gaming saw this as the perfect film to develop an online casino game on. They use the original footage and audio to great effect and this really adds to the whole experience. Now, the Psycho online slot game, is one of the best horror movie based slot games ever made.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

The classic horror film which saw character Freddy Krueger kill four teenagers in their sleep is one of the most successful horror movies of all time, with Krueger one of the most recognizable figures ever to grace the big screen. It was no surprise that the film made it as a slot game. Again, as you’d expect, the sound effects and music play a big role in adding to the haunting experience when playing. Freddy Krueger as well as others appear in the five reel game too.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man is one of the oldest horror movies that is still talked about to this day. It involves a science experiment going drastically wrong, with homicidal madness ensuing from the off. NetEnt, one of the leaders in the online slot game industry, developed a brilliant take on H. G. Wells’ story, with authentic sounds and visuals to boot. A five reel slot game sees recognisable faces from the hit movie and players also have the chance to win big due to the bonus features on offer.

The Mummy

The Mummy, released in 1932, sees an ancient Egyptian mummy brought back to life through a magic scroll. He then goes on to stalk a woman who he believes to be the reincarnation of his lover. Years later we have seen the development of The Mummy Franchise and it’s no surprise that slot makers have made games based on these films. Most people would be scared of a living mummy right? Playtech have been behind these brilliant adaptations which have been praised for their advanced graphics and inclusion of popular characters and SFX.
