At The Movies Game Information
At The Movies is a 5-reel max 25-pay line slot from Betsoft Gaming. This slot is sure to be a blockbuster for fans of the silver screen, as all the symbols and bonus features have a definite movie-themed connection.
This is one of Betsoft Gaming’s less ‘video intense’ slots, although all wins do trigger a neat animation. If you’re a frequent visitor to your local Cineplex and also an online slots fan, then grab some popcorn, load up a few virtual coins and get those movie reels spinning.
At The Movies Gameplay and Symbols
The symbols in this game are movie-themed, including playing card values ten to ace with each having an associated genre: romance (ten), sci-fi (jack), monster (queen), comedy (king) and box office (ace). Other symbols include magazine covers, popcorn and projectors.
Your coin size can be anything from 0.02 to 0.50, and you can select any number of lines from one to the maximum of twenty-five in odd number increments. You can also select your bet per line from one to five. Your wager is your coin size multiplied by the number of lines multiplied by your bet per line. This means the minimum possible wager is 0.02, and the maximum is (0.50 x 25 x 5 =) 125.
Once you’re happy with your settings, hit the ‘Spin’ button. You can automatically wager the maximum bet size by hitting ‘Max Bet Spin’. If you land at least three identical symbols from the left-hand reel on one of your active pay lines, then you’re a winner! Note that only sequences that run left to right win, and you cannot win twice on the same pay line, although you can win on more than one pay line on the same spin.
Pay-outs commence at x5 your bet-per-line for three love-hearted tens, and run up to 1,000x your bet-per-line for five Oscar-like statuettes. You can check out the jackpot you stand to win by clicking the ‘View Pays’ button at the top of the screen.
At The Movies bonus features
At The Movies Wild Symbol: A pair of rather horrific drama/comedy masks acts as the wild symbol. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols aside from the projector symbol, and any winning pay line that contains a wild symbol is doubled in value.
At The Movies Scatter Symbol: The projector symbol acts as the scatter symbol. If you land two scatter symbols anywhere on the reels once they have stopped spinning you win 2x your bet-per-line. Three symbols awards you eight free spins; four awards you twelve while five will have you weeping with joy as you’re awarded the ‘top of the bill’ prize of twenty free spins. All wins during free spins are automatically doubled.
At The Movies Conclusion
It has to be said that when compared to other Betsoft offerings At The Movies is a little on the light side, and it’s a surprise to discover that the slot was released in 2012. It’s certainly never likely to pick up an award for ‘best online slot’ at the casino gambling’s equivalent of the Oscars.
At The Movies is a nice diversion with cool graphics but the lack of bonus features means this game becomes a little tired all too quickly. Betsoft have moved on to bigger and better slots since At The Movies was released, and so, we suggest, will you once you have given this slot a few spins.
Having said all that, ninety minutes or so playing At The Movies is still much preferable to watching the latest Adam Sandler or Vince Vaughn ‘comedy’ hit!
