Despite the wide range of video game topics we cover here, I don't think we've talked about online slot games much (probably for the best, as it reduces the amount of spam comments from online casinos). This video slot cinematic comes from a collection of clips recently uploaded by producer/composer Frank Baudille, who specializes in the audio design for these games.

Cryptologic, one of Baudille's clients, has purchased licenses to create online slot games based on a number of properties: Marvel Comics characters (The Incredible Hulk, X-men), DC Comics characters (Wonder Woman, Superman), Paramount Pictures films (Forrest Gump, Brave Heart), and even video games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Street Fighter IV.

The descriptions Cryptologic uses for its branded games, tying their slot mechanics into the licenses, are entertaining:

"Forrest Gump says that life is like a box of chocolates and the same holds true for the new 25 line Forrest Gump slot machine. You never know what you're gonna get... a big payout or one of three bonus features including the smashing new 5-level Hollywood Jackpots. It all goes together like peas and carrots, just like Jenny and Forrest in the newest 25 line branded, jackpot slot game from Cryptologic."

I've included a couple more videos and descriptions below for Cryptologic's Batman and Braveheart online slot games:

"Join the Dark Knight as he battles The Joker in the world’s first and only Batman slot machine. This groundbreaking 50 line game features stacked wilds and a Batman Re-spin feature where all prizes are doubled as 3 free spins are played with one reel completely Wild! Activate the bonus bet for a chance to play the ‘Descent into Madness’ bonus feature. Armed with your Batarang, you must fight your way through the inmates of Arkham Asylum to stop The Joker, earning cash prizes and up to 100 times your triggering bet."

"The new Braveheart slot machine isn't eligible to win an Academy Award, but the movie that inspired it took home five of the golden statues. The sights, sounds, and excitement generated in this, the first in a series of Hollywood Jackpot movies is worthy of awards and accolades. Will the Scottish side prevail in the Battle Free Games feature or will the Longshanks put down the rebellion? You'll have to play to find out."
