2012 Movie Slot

Setting the scene takes on a whole new meaning now that we've launched our Free Slots section on games inspired by cinema hits and TV shows! And what better way, we thought, to get a new year and a new slots category started than with a game depicting the Mayan apocalypse of 2012? Thankfully, now that we've all made it to 2013, it's clear that the Mayans - like many people before them - got their doomsday predictions a little bit wrong. Now it's time to celebrate our survival with an exciting disaster movie slot packed with special features and two bonus rounds, as well as animations, not to mention tsunamis, earthquakes, and massive volcanic eruptions.

Symbols

The special symbols are the WILD (an image of a dark and stormy looking planet Earth from space), and the SCATTER (an ancient Mayan carving), the DISASTER BONUS symbol (the scene of a devastating explosion), and the 2012 BONUS symbol. Images of famous landmarks, such as Yellowstone National Park, the Statue of Liberty, and Big Ben, also appear on the reels - all are threatened by the volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that come close to wiping out the Earth's population. The rest of the symbols are high-value playing cards from 9 through to Ace. (A similar playing cards feature frequently appears in slots by Playtech - many of which we've made available at Free Slots for free spins.) 2012's symbols display some animation when triggered in one of the slot's 20 paylines. The playing cards flash, whereas the special symbols' animations are more complex. The SCATTER for example, goes up in flames when triggered.

Wagers and Jackpots

The 2012 movie slot is a 20-payline, 5-reel game. The highest payout a real-money player can receive from a regular spin is 1,000 coins for 5 Big Ben symbols on an active payline. The lowest is 5 coins for a playing card 10 or 9 appearing 3 times on an active line. You can wager on up to 20 lines per spin, with coin values of 0.01 to 1.00 in whichever currency you play in. You can also bet up to 5 coins per line which will boost your winnings if you get lucky in a real-money game. Otherwise, for players spinning for free, it will be the other ways to win, including the two interactive bonus rounds, which will be the most attractive feature of this game.

Other ways to win

  • The 2012 BONUS - this bonus feature is triggered when 3 or more 2012 BONUS symbols appear anywhere on the slot's reels. Complete this doomsday scenario bonus game and you could be rewarded with up to 100,000 coins when playing in real-money mode.
  • The DISASTER BONUS - this is an instant bonus worth up to 10,000 coins, which is launched when 3 DISASTER BONUS symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 respectively. Your bonus winnings will be multiplied by your total bet if you're playing for real cash.

Music, audio and graphics

2012 features music from the movie and plays special audio when you hit a payline. The graphics are sharp, neat and fit in well with the theme, even if they don't feature the most exciting animations ever. Storm clouds appear above the reels every now and then, and reel number 5 has a tendency to burst into flames.

The Last Word

The game is definitely worth a spin for anyone playing just for fun. It doesn't quite meet the standard of some of the most exciting 3D games out there (check out Gonzo's Quest in our Adventure Slots category, for example), but for movie fans, it's a good bet (no pun intended!).
