A host of TV game shows have inspired the creation of several popular online slot machine games. They bring a new element to each one and allow players to feel like in some small way they can participate on the game show they love the most. Today, Casino-Bonus.com gives you some slots that were inspired by TV game shows.
The Jeopardy Slot Machine
Since 1964 Jeopardy has been a staple of game shows. It is so iconic that there is now an online slot machine game that brings the fun of the show to each player. The game features the voices of the show’s announcer, Johnny Gilbert, as well as Alex Trebek himself.
The 40 pay line five reel game boasts three bonuses based on classic Jeopardy. Its bonus features are Free Spins and the Wild Rush, along with the Bonus Board. The Jeopardy logo is used as the wild symbol and when it appears on the reels, there is a chance that other wilds will as well. This turns it into a sticky wild that stays on the reels while free spins are played out.
The scatter symbol is the one that triggers the Bonus board feature. When at least two of the symbols appear on the center reels within a single spin, players are taken to a new screen where they see the typical Jeopardy game board. Players make one choice in each of the three columns on the screen and uncovering one daily double gets them the chance to choose another one. They then get to choose if they want the free spins or a multiplier. The “X marks the spot” gets players the multiplier to use on the free spins.
Deal or No Deal Slot Machine
Another popular game show that inspired an online slot machine game is Deal or No Deal. It also has three bonus features that make it as exciting as the TV version of the game. At any time during standard game play, the Banker’s Offer feature can be activated. When this happens, a phone will start to ring and the reels will stop spinning. Players can then choose whether they want to take the deal offered to them or take the chance that the spin of the reels will land them a bigger cash payout. Deal gets players the amount being offered over the phone and no deal allows players to go back to spinning the reels.
Mystery Box Bonus
The excitement continues with the Mystery Box bonus. Getting three of the bonus symbols on the reels triggers the Mystery Box. Players are then taken to a new screen where they see 15 boxes sealed shut. 11 of the 15 boxes have cash prizes in them. Three of the boxes are empty, but a single box on the screen holds the sum of all the cash prizes found in this round. Players continue choosing boxes until they open one of the empty boxes.
These are just two of the online slot machine games that were inspired by a TV game show that viewers all over the world love watching. Want more news? Visit our news guide page for more fun facts and other interesting articles.
