Fresh off the Reels
In design, At The Movies looks nothing short of amazing. The game looks to be made up of a drive-in movie theatre, with the glow simply emanating off screen. The theme and look of the game is complimented by the symbols on the reels, with the awards, magazines, and more giving the game an authentic touch.
Sadly, At The Movies doesn’t have a great soundtrack – instead of sounding like you’re watching a movie it sounds like live theater. Despite all that, it’s still a lot of fun to look at, with At The Movies certainly having a commendable UI.
Bringing Back an American Institution
At The Movies works just like most other slot games you’ve come in contact with before. There are 5 reels and 30 paylines, with the maximum amount you can bet being 250.00 per spin. Gameplay wise, At The Movies happens to be surprisingly deep, with choice being a big part of the experience.
There are a lot of options to decide from before you can actually begin the game. First of all, you have to decide how many paylines you want to use. You can make that decision by going to the soda container, which allows you to play from 1 to 30 lines. Then, you have to decide how much you want to bet per payline, which you can do using the popcorn tub symbol. The player can then decide to change the number of credits per payline from between 5 and 1. Finally, you have to decide how much you want to bet. Once you make all those decisions, you’re finally ready to spin the reels of At The Movies.
Look out for the Hidden “Easter Eggs”
What’s a slot game without a few fun bonus features to enjoy? Well, this title actually doesn’t include too many bonus features, which is one of its biggest setbacks. There are really only two bonus features of you to enjoy. The first is the free spins bonus feature, which happens with you get a combo of three or more movie reel symbols. There’s also the wild symbol, which you can find in the comedy and tragedy symbol.
Going off Script
At The Movies, while certainly unique in its design, isn’t a single entity when it comes to gameplay. In fact, a simple search reveals a fair number of games that operate in a similar fashion to this Betsoft title. Addressing certain games that may just take your fancy, there are two games in particular that will be of note. From Gamesys you have Formula Won X, with Sushi Bar (that is also by Betsoft) also fitting the bill.
Pull into at the Movies!
At The Movies really is a game that bumps up the action on a graphical level, as Betsoft have clearly rolled out the big guns here. That being said, the game is far from perfect, as it lacks a real zip in the gameplay department, with the biggest drawback in the game being that it doesn’t have very many bonus features.
Breaking it down, while we would certainly recommend At The Movies as a game, but no player should expect it to deliver a mind blowing experience by any means.
