Willy Wonka is a 5-reel slot machine with 40 paylines. The game theme revolves around the Gene Wilder movie of the same name, which was based on the book by Raold Dahl. The slot features exciting settings and mouthwatering chocolates as the symbols, along with Willy Wonka, the Oompa Loompas and other characters from the movie. The game includes video clips from the movie and bonus features that are triggered by the scatter or bonus symbols.
The background score and other songs from the musical are also a part of this slot machine by WMS, so that you can get an authentic movie-like experience playing this game. Another exciting feature of this slot machine is the motion system chair that moves during the bonus rounds, to make the experience even better.
Real money version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory slots can be played at casinos where the slot machine is available. The game is provided through the Bluebird 2 slot machine and is multidimensional, which means the betting range is pretty wide. To date, WMS has only released the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory slots for real money play in land-based casinos, but not for online or mobile platforms.
The Willy Wonka video slots has nine exclusive bonus features that are as exciting as they are lucrative. The 3D video slots brilliantly combines the classic slot gaming with the videos and scenes from the 1971 movies, to make your experience all the more enjoyable. The bonus feature is triggered every time you get three elevator symbols on the screen. Take the elevator up to determine what bonus you get. During the bonus features, you get to go on a boat ride in the chocolate river, watch the oompa loompas dance, play free spins, pick gobstoppers and do many other exciting things at the Wonka factory.
If the elevator hits the "spins" symbol with Willy Wonka on it, then you get free spins. The Gobstopper Picking bonus lets you pick the candy laid out on the screen. The player has to use the touch-screen to pick the Gobstoppers, which either offer a reward or explode. If the gobstopper you picked explodes, you are given another chance to pick one that offers a reward.
Then there is the chocolate river ride bonus, which takes you on a ride down the Wonka factory's chocolate river. To add to this unique feature, the motion sensor chair moves to and fro, imitating the movement of the boat on the screen. The free spins bonus is triggered when the elevator stops at the Spins symbol. This feature includes giant Grandpa Joe, Willy Wonka symbols that replace multiples slots on the reels. The number of spins is determined by the sweet you choose on the screen.
The Golden Ticket feature is triggered if you earn 1500 credits during the free spins. To find the golden ticket, you have to pick a Wonka bar on the screen and test your luck. Find the golden ticket and you get paid very generously.
Undoubtedly, the imaginary world of Willy Wonka and Charlie will enthrall and attract you through this slot game.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a hit musical film directed by Stuart Lee. The film, which is based on Raold Dahl's book by the name Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, was released in June 1971. The movie starred Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, Peter Ostrum as Charlie, and Jack Albertson as Grandpa Joe among others. The film was shot in locations in Munich, West Germany.
A remake of the movie was released in 2005 by Warner Brothers. The estimated budget of the movie was $2.9 million, and it managed to gross only $4 million at the box office. A small number in comparison to the $474 million the original movie grossed. Although it failed to perform well commercially, it received positive reviews and was nominated for an Academy Award for original score. However, Gene Wilder was not as pleased with the remake as some of the critics. The 2005 Chocolate Factory remake starred Johnny Depp and was directed by Tim Burton.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is now available to the audience through DVDs. The producers also released special 25th anniversary, 30th anniversary and 40th anniversary editions of the DVDs in 1997, 2001 and 2011.
