- but why not try one of these?
Released in 1994, Forrest Gump is the Oscar winning film starring Tom Hanks and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It follows the various life events of slow-learner Forrest as he stars on the football field and becomes a hero in Vietnam. This online slot is a good-looking adaptation of the film, it’s developed by Cryptologic (now part of Amaya Gaming) and it features a chocolate-themed bonus game and a
Forrest Gump is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; there’s a suburban scene behind the reels which themselves are decorated with a flower trellis. The sound effects are nice enough but don’t really match the movie.
All the symbols are related to the theme and include Forrest, Forrest as a hippy, his girlfriend, a CND logo, an American football, an army helmet, a pair of table tennis bats and a baseball cap.
The wild symbol is the iconic image of Forrest sitting on a bench with his luggage; it appears only on reels two, three and four and substitutes for all others except the box of chocolates scatter icon. W in including a wild symbol will be subject to a 2x multiplier.
Box Of Chocolates Bonus
Forrest Gump’s oft-quoted phrase is “…life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re gonna get“. Here you’re gonna get five free spins if you can land three or more scatter symbols anywhere in view but first you will open chocolate boxes to gain additional spins.
The spins themselves take place on a 3×3 gris made up of assorted choccies so match them up for payouts.
Run Forrest Run
This is triggered by landing three or more footballs left to right on an active payline. Click ‘Run’ and you will see Forrest making his way down a football field. Try and avoid the defenders by clicking ‘left’ and ‘right’ and your prize will depend on the distance gained.
There are five jackpots to win – Blockbuster, Epic, Smash, Classic and Acclaimed; these are won randomly but a higher stake will increase your chances of striking lucky.
Like the Ferris Bueller slot, Forrest Gump is faithful to the movie in various ways and that’s always a good start. The graphics and animations are attractive and there’s an RTP of 94.38%.
