2017 was one heck of a year for entertainment. With  the penultimate series of Game of Thrones. We witnessed an abundance of blockbuster films. Comic book heroes seem to be taking over the world. Or at least Disney is. And we enjoyed plenty of adaptations, especially slots ones. As we enter the new  gaming year let’s take a look back at some of the best and biggest slots of 2017, with popcorn at the ready. Where do we begin? There are simply too many good slots to choose. So we’ll just go through as many as we can.

The Reel Way To Enjoy Movies

Let’s start off with NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes, one of the best slot adaptations slots fans have enjoyed for a while. Why? Because it’s not just one film in one slot. In fact, it’s the last two films of the trilogy, combined into one spectacular slot. With a range of epic bonus features and the chance to relive Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we really feel like we’re part of Caesar’s army. Though in NetEnt’s slot, we get paid in more than bananas.

From monkeys to bears, we move on to Blueprint’s Ted. Just like the film, this slot is funny, rude and too good to be true. This five reel, 20 payline slot transports us to Ted’s place as the foul-mouthed bear lies comatose on the floor in front of us. But he does get active. And then some. For he can randomly trigger one of six modifiers during any spin. There are also another five bonus rounds, including the aptly named Wheel of Fartune Bonus. What more could we ask for?

We can ask for dinosaurs, that’s what! Microgaming delivered this wish in epic fashion with its Jurassic World slot, a five reel, 243 Ways to Win adaptation of the hit 2015 film. Like the movies, this slot is an improvement on previous releases. The movie characters spring on to the reels, along with a range of bonus features such as Rolling Reels, Cryo Wilds and the Gyrosphere Valley Free Spins.

Are there any more, we hear you ask. Why yes. Yes there are. Halloween was released…can you guess when? Michael Myers brings reel frights to the reels on this five reel, 50 payline slot, and particularly during the Boogeyman Bonus. Brrrr. And Microgaming notched up another hit with its Phantom of the Opera slot, bringing all the magic of the musical to the reels on an elegant, 243 Ways to Win slot.

2017 A Busy Year

Can you pick your favourite between these titles? It’s a tough choice. But a headache we’re glad to have. Gaming companies are always looking for the next best idea for its slots and movie adaptations are always a good idea, with fan bases ready and set to enjoy the reels while aiming for big wins. It just so happens that 2017 was seen with oodles of great ones. Like you, we’re looking forward to see what 2018 will bring to Casino Kings bulging slot catalogue.
