Contrary to what the game’s title may imply, this slot does not really have a Hollywood theme. Rather, this 5-reel, 5-payline online slot from Novomatic resembles the classic fruit machines of old, with their simple gameplay and basic 2D graphics. You can relax with the game on your desktop, tablet, or mobile devices.
Progressive Jackpot: No
The title of this 5-reel, 5-payline online slot from Novomatic may seem misleading, as it does not really have much that can be associated with Hollywood or even the film industry in general. However, that does not mean there is nothing to like in this slot. Rather than Hollywood glitz and glamour, this slot actually has more of a retro appeal, resembling the classic fruit machines you just might still find in land-based casinos these days. It has pretty simple gameplay and graphics but could very well have you winning a huge payout on your lucky day.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Bet/Line +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager per line. To set the reels into motion, click on the green Start tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Autoplay tab at the leftmost end of the control panel.
You will not find any of the familiar playing card symbols in this game. And if you’re expecting a whole range of icons associated with the film industry, you will be deeply disappointed, as there is only one standard symbol and one special symbol that has a reference to Hollywood.
All standard symbols in this game are represented by the classic fruit symbols. From the lowest to the highest in value, you will see the familiar cherries, an orange, a bunch of grapes, a lemon, a plum, and a slice of watermelon. The highest-paying standard symbol, and the only standard symbol that represents Hollywood, is the image of Marilyn Monroe.
The game also has a special symbol, which may also be considered representative of Hollywood, and that is the Scatter symbol. This symbol is represented by a golden star. It does not trigger any bonus round, but it does offer some impressive payouts regardless of where they land on the reels.
As mentioned above, this game does not have a bonus round that can be triggered by any of the game symbols. Even the game’s Scatter symbol has no function other than providing significant payouts. But that does not mean the game has no redeeming feature that makes it entertaining.
It does come with the Gamble feature common to many Novomatic slots. Every time you land a winning combination, you will be given the option of whether to collect your cash prize or to gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be taken to a mini game where you will have to guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn. If you guess correctly, your prize will be doubled. If you guess wrong, the mini game will end and you will lose your total wins for that round.
