Psycho: a slot game to be played with lights on
Turn on all the lights and check under your bed; the original horror story has just hit the reels. The classic 60’s Psycho is entering the world of online casinos thanks to a collaboration between software developer NextGen Gaming and movie giant Universal Studios. Together, they have launched a fantastic 5-reels and 25-payline game that even the one-and-only Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of, and that brings his cult movie to life.
Releasing slots based on famous films is a growing trend. Probably because movies already have a strong followings in turn practically guarantees the success of the slot version.
The film Psycho was released in 1960 and is an American psychological thriller-horror movie starring Anthony Perkins in the role of the main character and psychotic killer Norman. The film obtained cult almost immediately not because it is a great film, but because it depicted a level of raw violence which had never been screen before on screen.
The slot’s imagery follows closely the movie as it sets the story in a haunting and isolated wooden house perched on a hill above the notorious Bates Motel. A silhouetted figure is seen in the window spying on guests, while rain pours down during what appears to be a late fall evening, thus echoing the tension and mood of the film.
In a different style, SlotFather is another game based on a very famous film: The God Father

This multiplier will vary between 2x and 20x (more specifically 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x and 20x).
