Casino Slots Based on the Oscar Winning Movie
There was a time back in 1997, when the Titanic movie was so dominant that you’d think it was the only movie available! Starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, this movie went on to win several Oscars, and beat current box-office records. Bally took the concept – and has now produced two casino slots which are themed around the Titanic movie. You’ll see Kate and Leo on the front of the cabinet, choose your ‘class’ of passage, and can even hear Celine Dion singing.
Features and progressive bonus games open up the better your ‘ticket’. To travel first class, you need to bet more per spin. The features are rich, with a ships wheel spin deciding which bonus games you get to play.
There is now a newer version, called Titanic 2. This page keeps the focus on the popular original, noting the differences with the newer game in each section.
Before You Set Sail: Choosing Your Ticket and Slot Setup
You can choose from a basic package, all the way through to first class when you play the Titanic Slots. The smallest spin amount is just 45c, with the max $4 per spin. If your bankroll can afford it, play the bigger bets. These unlock all the progressive jackpots – as well as some extra bonus features.
On the original game, the reels have a 5 by 3 grid, with 25 win-lines. The newer Titanic 2 has a diamond shaped reel setup, with an all-ways system and stacked symbols. Back to Titanic 1, and you’ll find the symbols in the base game are pictures of the cast. There are also plenty of iconic props from the movie, the old luggage, pocket watches and even an early car. You will also find the Titanic itself, viewed from in front.
Mystery bonuses can drop at any time. Here you will get up to 3 wild reels dropping in, with full length pictures of a lady in period costume.
Ships Wheels and Multiple Bonus Games
If you get 3 of the ships on the Titanic slot machine, the wheel bonus symbols anywhere in view, you get to spin an impressive wheel. Instead of coloured segments as on most slots, this wheel is an old wooden ships’ steering wheel. It contains a lot of different bonus games. In the newer Titanic 2, you can also trigger a bonus by filling reels 1 and 5 with the heart-shaped gems.
Bonuses include the ‘make it count’ game. This focuses on the clock symbol; and is preceded by a look at the famous hand-written note from the movie. When a clock hits during your 10 free spins, one of two things happen. It either adds one free spin or becomes a locking wild. If you get a lot of locking wilds, you can find yourself with 5 of a kind wins on every spin for those last few free spins.
This is not the only free spins round. The ‘Heart of the Ocean’ in Titanic slots makes the blue gems into special symbols for the duration. These expand in both directions and become wild. Giving you big patches or sometimes even entire wild reels. In the new game this bonus changes. You now get the gems and necklaces only on the reels.
In another game, you see 3 characters on the reels, and pick one to reveal either a bonus in credits – or a progressive jackpot. Remember, you need to add more credits to unlock the higher progressive jackpots.
Epic Movie Themed Design
You really can’t miss the characters from the movie on the top of the cabinet. This is only the start of a very detailed and professional production. The original slot uses sepia tones on the reels to contrast with the background colours. Titanic 2 is brighter, with the unusual reels catching the eye right away.
On both models the symbols are detailed, and really do bring the era to life. I like the fact that no playing card symbols are used. Music is dominated by Celine, who will sing the theme song of the movie to celebrate your big wins. This is joined by jazz type sounds and different effects for the bonus games.
Animations include scenes from the movie. There are plenty of familiar moments, tied in with bonus games or to celebrate bigger line hits.
Should You Set Sail for the Titanic Slots?
Both of these slots are very popular, and for good reasons. Bally have managed to mix entertainment and casino gaming brilliantly in these slots. The original has sepia tones and feels more atmospheric. Titanic 2 is bolder and does things differently with the unusual reel setup. Both slots have plenty of bonus games. If you choose the right ‘ticket’, you can also be in with a shot at some very big progressive jackpots!
