It’s not bad, it’s not awesome, this is a middle of the road game with some fun free spins.
Grab your cinema ticket and start spinning on the At The Movies slot which dresses itself up as offering some epic gambling experience, but is full of B-List rather than A-list stars.
If there is one thing that At The Movies does right, it is creating an gaming experience. No expense has been spared in designing this online slot machine.
The slot ‘border’ is styled like a movie theatre with its glowing lights, and the symbol images all made to create an air of cinema such as popcorn, an Oscar, and Hollywood Digest magazine.
The images have a little bit too much ‘animation’ for our tastes, distract you on every spin, but they work.
One issue that you may have with the whole theme is the sound effects. To us, they really do not fit in with the slot theme.
The music does sound amazing, and it is probably not going to have you reaching for the mute button on your speakers, but we just don’t think that it really suits a slot based around the movies.
Then there’s the maximum bet which doesn’t go much higher than 2.50 a spin, so high rollers are out. So surely this must cater for low rollers?
Your minimum bet per spin (assuming you are hitting all those 25 paylines) will be 0.50. You would think that if you are betting that high, you would get a bit of fun from the game. Alas, no. There is a single bonus feature, but it barely triggers.
As a medium volatility slot, you are going to be suffering through dead spin after dead spin, and it is annoying.
Sure, you are bound to have a smile on your face when the bonus round pops up…if that ever happens.
Honestly; this 5 reel slot could have been made 100x better simply by adding an instant win feature into the game, or maybe an extra bonus feature like you get in A Night in Paris Betsoft game or even the Jungle Books slot.
We suppose the fact that the wild symbol does double your wins adds a touch of excitement to the base game, but we fear that it is not going to be enough for the majority of people out there.
The bonus round in At The Movies comes in the form of free spins. There is at least eight on offer here, with a maximum of 20 available.
You will need to hit at least three scatters for those eight free spins, and five scatters if you want the full 20.
There is a 2x multiplier in place during the free spins mode, and it does seem as if the wild symbol appears more frequently during those free spins, which will allow you to replenish your bankroll that was probably dwindling quickly during the base game.
That’s because the theoretical RTP here is a high 97.48%, but they keep almost all the wins for the bonus games it seems.
The minimum bet here is far too high for something which does not pay out often enough.
We recommend that keep your bet as conservative as possible then hope and pray you hit some wilds or trigger the bonus round. This is the only way in which you are going to have any real fun playing here.
Other than the theme, we don’t think that At the Movies brings anything unique to the table. It’s not bad, it’s not great.
Wins are not regular and the free spins are fun, but there’s not much to shout about here either – maybe 50x your bet on a lucky spin full of wilds.
There’s plenty of other slots from Betsoft that are more exciting, but this is a middle of the road game for those who just seek out free spins.
