Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory by Light & Wonder

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is based squarely on Warner Bros’ 1970s film adaptation of the classic book. Roald Dahl famously hated the movie, but it has proved a hit with kids and families ever since its release.

The Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory online slot adaptation is a six-reel game that features characters from the film, as well as toffees and candies. Oompa Loompas jump about the reels as you play too. Each reel is independent, meaning there are millions more possible combinations available.

Those cheeky Oompa Loompas can trigger a random feature as well. The game area stretches to accommodate another 2–4 reels. In addition, any wins you hit during the feature are multiplied by 2x. Stacked wild columns can appear as well at random.

The ever-lasting gobstopper is the scatter. Each scatter expands to fill the whole reel, and you are awarded one bonus re-spin. The stacked scatters hold in place for the re-spin. Plus, additional stacked scatters can appear to enhance payouts.

In addition, 4–6 scatters anywhere trigger the Wheel of Fortune and a payout of up to 50x stake. Spin the wheel for a chance to win 8–12 free spins with giant symbols and bet multipliers.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory offers nearly as many thrills as the original family film. Will you be lucky enough to win the Golden Ticket for a maximum jackpot worth 500x? Try the slot for free today and see.

Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls by Play‘n GO

Ready for some Monkey magic? Play’n GO revisits a classic Chinese story in Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls. The five-reel slot features stacked reels, stacked wilds, and a jackpot worth 10,000x.  

Monkey Battle of the Scrolls slot reels by Play'n GO

From iconic family movies, we move to classic martial arts. Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls takes as its inspiration the Chinese legend of Prince Tipitaka and his friends, Monkey, Piggsy, and Sandy. You may remember the classic TV version from the 1970s. This new Play’n GO is a more serious affair and uses the recent comic book adaptation as its inspiration.

The game’s four characters all play a part in Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls. They all appear as icons above the reels, then switch places randomly after every spin.

You activate that character’s bonus by landing their icon above a reel at the same time as a demon scatter lands beneath it. The Monkey King triggers stacked wilds, Pigsy splits symbols, and Sandy adds random wilds to the reels. Finally, Tripitaka transforms random symbols into the same type.

You can also trigger a choice of free spins bonus with multipliers. Hit three scatters, then pick a character to reveal 3–15 free spins with multipliers worth up to 100x. The chosen character remains in place above the reels throughout the bonus.

There’s a little more Monkey magic in the form of the jackpot bonus. You win the Minor or Major instant jackpot by landing two or three bonus symbols. Jackpots are worth 100x to 500x stake.

Looking for top-end graphics, music, and characters in a slot? Monkey: Battle for the Scrolls all this in addition to superb bonuses and jackpots. Give it a spin for free today.

Sleepy Hollow by IGT

IGT is the latest developer to tackle Washington Irving’s classic horror story, Sleepy Hollow. It has little to do with the movie adaptation, but you can make do with some cute bonuses as you play the game.  

Sleepy Hollow slot reels by IGT

Most filmgoers will know the tale of Sleepy Hollow from Tim Burton’s 1999 creepy film adaptation. IGT’s newest game is more loosely based on the 19th-century tale of a New England village being terrorized by a headless ghost. It’s not the best-looking slot in the world of casino gaming, but there are one or two bonuses to look out for.

There are several wild symbols to be aware of in the game. The regular flaming wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatters. However, the single horseman wild can expand downward to transform into a wild measuring 3×1.  

In addition, the horseman spreads fire wherever a Sleepy Hollow symbol appears, turning them into wilds too.

You win free spins by landing three scatters anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5. Simply choose from a range of free spins options, including four spins with a 3x multiplier, 6 spins with 2x multipliers, and 12 free games with no multiplier awarded.

Plus, 1 reel randomly turns wild for every spin of the feature. Any bonus scatter that forms a winning combination also turns into an expanded wild.

With a choice of free spins, expanding wilds, and a 96%, there’s enough meat on the bonus of the headless horseman for you to give this game a try. Play it for free today.  

Pong Pong Mahjong by Microgaming

Get your tiles ready for Microgaming’s new Oriental-themed masterpiece: Pong Pong Mahjong. This five-reel slot features classic Mahjong tiles and Rolling Reels with a progressive multiplier on every win.  

Pong Pong Mahjong slot reels by Microgaming

Microgaming’s 2023 slots output takes an Asian turn with the release of Pong Pong Mahjong this week. The slot is based on the classic Chinese game of Mahjong where matching tiles lead to big wins.

While the graphics and gameplay are nice and simple, there’s a gentle Oriental theme tune that plays as you spin the reels. The Pong Pong Mahjong “presenter” chips in with encouragement (in Mandarin) while you play.

In this five-reel slot with 1,024 ways to win, you activate Rolling Reels with each winning spin. The matching symbols are removed from the screen, allowing symbols above to drop into their place. In addition, you activate a progressive multiplier that increases from 1x to 2x, 3x, and 5x for each successive Rolling Reels trigger.

Following any Rolling Reels trigger, the Top Area fills with three random Mahjong tiles. Symbols on the reels turn into wilds if the Top Area symbols match.

There’s a bigger chance of hitting matching symbols if you trigger the free spins bonus. Plus, the free spins bonus offers bigger multipliers (2x–10x instead of 1x–5x) for successive Rolling Reels winners. You win ten free spins with three scatters.

Look out too for the special dice symbol that can appear during free spins. This awards 1–6 additional free spins.

Pong Pong Mahjong is the type of fun Oriental-themed slot that Microgaming is expert in. It might even persuade you to take up learning Mandarin. Give the game a spin for free today.
