You’re being invited At The Movies by Betsoft, and the developer spares no effort in trying to turn this slot machine into a must-play title for those that love high-end productions. You get a movie themed game, where the graphics might play a big role, but the features are definitely not forgotten either.
Once inside the game, you will be playing on 5 reels and there are as many as 25 active lines for you to get paid through. Winning combinations have the potential of paying as much as $20,000 on each line, but to get that high there will be wilds, free spins and multipliers which will also contribute.
The bets are selected from the left side of the bottom row, and there are three options that can be modified. The coin value is first from the left, a display style button which you click repeatedly, as you take it from the minimum of $0.01 to a maximum of $1. The number of lines is next, and you take this from 1 to 25, though I’d recommend leaving the maximum number selected. Finally, you pick how many coins you want used per line, between 1 and 5, when you modify the Bet per line option.
These betting options give you a range of $0.01 to $125 for each spin, where a single line may get at most $5.
At the Movies Jackpot
A combination of factors will influence the size of the top prize, and to get the most out of it you need to form the right combo during the free spins and with at least one wild symbol part of it. That way, a combo of five Award Statues will pay as much as $20,000. That’s with a 4x total multiplier helping out though, as the base game value for the same combo is $5,000.
RTP wise, it’s not the best game around, not even for Betsoft. The quoted figure is 94.75%, so it doesn’t compare well with other slot machines newly released.
When it comes to special features, At the Movies keeps things simple and it doesn’t end up giving you anything that you can’t find somewhere else. It’s still a solid spread though, considering that multipliers get involved at every step.
These are the Masks, one happy and the other sad, so they’re easy enough to spot. As a wild symbol, it will be included in any combination that’s formed on the lines it lands on. The wild is a substitute, a Joker like feature that may be used in combination with any regular symbols. The requirement to have a combo of 3+ matching symbols still applies, it’s only that the Mask can be one of those icons alongside the regular ones. Even better, having Mask wilds in combinations will boost winnings, thanks to its 2x multiplier.
Another excellent way to boost winnings is going to be possible during the game’s free spins. Triggering these is possible when the Projector symbol lands on at least three reels in a single round, even if they’re not connected by the same active line. 8, 12 or 20 free spins are given to players with 3, 4 or 5 Projectors scattered in view. The wins obtained during free spins get a 2x multiplier applied to them. Get a wild to help out during the free spins, and the combo it participates in will get a total multiplier of 4x.
It’s pretty clear what the theme will be in At The Movies. What’s unusual is the high quality of the design, which is something that Betsoft excels at when they really try. It’s one of their Slots3 titles, a series that impressed players a couple of years back. It’s got 100% movie themed symbols, and even the few Royals that you see aren’t instantly recognizable as such. Whether it’s sci fi fighters, shark mouths, projectors, masks or cartoon characters, they are all very well designed.
With rewards of up to $20,000 per winning combo, with several multipliers and awesome graphics, At The Movies offers enough to make it a solid choice, though the RTP might not convince everyone to give it a try.
