Game developers are always looking for exciting themes to turn into slot games. One of their strategies is to take popular movies that have a global appeal and turn them into movie slot machines. This is a brilliant strategy as the global audience has already been sold on the movie and the slot movie becomes a lot easier to market.
Our guest author Carlos Norberg has spent a lot of time researching and playing a long list of movie-themed slots. This is his list of the best casino games based on movies. To find out more about Carlos Norberg, click here.
