And The Slots Call Academy Award Goes To…

Don’t you just love Oscar season? The best films are in the cinema, old classics are on TV and everyone is feeling that Hollywood glamour.

To get in the mood for the Oscars, we’ve decided to give you the lowdown on our favourite slots games inspired by movies that have won or have been nominated for Academy Awards. Looking for a gaming snack? Throw some popcorn in the microwave and really do it right this Oscar season.


One of the scariest films of all time, Psycho is one of Alfred Hitchcock’s finest masterpieces. At the 33rd Academy Awards, it was nominated in four categories, including Best Director and Best Supporting Actress for Janet Leigh.

Head to Coral and you can relive the creepy scenes inside the Bates Motel, including the infamous shower scene. This is a 5-reel slot with 25 fixed paylines, designed by Nextgen. A big red Wild symbol can mean your wins are multiplied by 20x. And don’t be alarmed by that stabbing hand, it’s only going to add more wilds to the reels.

The creepy house where Bates’ mother lives is the scatter symbol. Get three or more and you’ll get to enjoy up to 20 free spins. Scoop wilds during these free wins and your prize can be multiplied by up to 40x.


Anti-war epic Platoon was nominated in seven Oscar categories and won four awards, including the coveted Best Picture and Best Director prizes.

Head straight back to the gritty world of the Vietnam War when you play this slot at PlanetWin365. This dark slot designed by Isoftbet isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s filled with helicopters, tanks and dog tags, as well as characters from the movie.

Equipped with 5 reels and 30 paylines, the character symbols in this game offer big payouts. The one to watch out for is Charlie Sheen’s character. If you get that five in a row of that symbol, you scoop a cool 1,000 coins.

Activate the free spins round when you get three or more helicopter scatter symbols across the reels. Depending on how many scatter symbols you get, you can be awarded up to 12 free spins. Plus all winnings during the free spin rounds are multiplied from 5x up to 15x.


This has got to be one of the most iconic films of the century so far. A Ridley Scott historical drama starring Russell Crowe, this puts viewers right back to the heart of the Ancient Roman empire. In the 73rd Academy Awards, it swept the board and won an incredible five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor.

Playtech has designed an homage to the blockbuster film with this 25-payline slot, available at Coral. Just to get one thing out of the way straight off the bat, you won’t spot Russell Crowe in this game. However, Joaquin Phoenix is on the reels and if you get five of his Emperor symbols, you can trigger a 5,000-coin jackpot.

We love the clips from the movie in the slot, along with two excellent bonus features. The Gladiator Bonus is triggered when you get three or more Helmet symbols on reels 2,3 or 4. Then you get to pick from a variety of helmets and score up to 45x your wager.

Get three or more Colosseum symbols and you’ll trigger the Colosseum free spins bonus feature. Pick stones and reveal your free spins, multiplier, extra scatter and extra wild symbols.

And do you know what’s even better? There’s also a progressive jackpot that you could scoop at any time.
