One of the most iconic movies of our generation, Forrest Gump is back on our screens for one more adventure in Cryptologic’s latest 25 payline creation. The game has unsurprisingly gained a lot of attention since its release, and this has to be down to the array of bonus features on offer, in addition to the whopping five Hollywood Progressive jackpots.
Unlike pother movie themed slots, Forrest Gump doesn’t use actual images from the motion picture, yet Cryptologic have decided to use great looking artistic illustration’s to depict each character. Other movie memorabilia also feature meaning fans of the movie can relive their favourite moments spin after spin.
The icons include a box of chocolates, ping pong pads, peace symbols, a soldiers helmet, an American football, a bubba hat (no mention of Bubba Gump Shrimp), his house, Lieutenant Dan (down and out style), Jenny and Forrest sitting on a bench. High quality imagery and animations are used throughout the slot, which in turn makes the gameplay much more enjoyable.
Each symbol is brilliantly animated when included with a winning line and all of this is encased flowered border which contains other items from the film (keep an eye out for his running shoes).
Cryptologic have ensured that such a big named slot caters for every level of gambler, with bets ranging from 0.01 to 20 per spin with a generous variety of options in between.
Let’s not forget about the huge, crazy progressive jackpots on offer are awarded at random. The largest of which is the Blockbuster jackpot which is continually displayed in the top left-hand corner. This enticingly increasing counter is a great attraction to all level of punters.
Bonus Round and Features
Wilds and Scatters appear in this hit movie slot, with the former represented by the Forrest. Every time he appears within the reels he substitutes for all other symbols besides the scatters and bonus symbols. Speaking of which the scatters only appear on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels but when hit it doubles any win that is
This first bonus round to mention is The box of chocolates round and is started when three, four or five chocolate symbols are hit anywhere within the reels. Players are taken to a mysterious looking 3×3 grid of chocolates and matching chocolates wins an instant bonus which is multiplied by the total bet. This is a simple match-and-win style game but having triggered this round many times before I can say that there is a lot to love about the rewards here.
Three or more American Football symbols on a payline triggers the legendary ‘Run Forrest Run’ feature. During this epic round a prize is awarded for every 10 yards gained so it’s down to the player to direct Forrest to a clear passage. This is a truly interactive round and very exciting also, with additional bonus prizes awarded if a touchdown is achieved!
