From the glitz and glamour of London to the coastline of Northern Ireland, British TV and film has influenced online casinos in ways you couldn’t possibly imagine. Let’s take a look at some of the incredible shows and movies that have appeared in online casinos. As with the majority of online slots and casino games, you can play these titles listed for free via free play demos, read a full review and more online without parting with a penny.

You’re the Star of the Show!

 It’s not only dramas that have made it onto the online casino scene, gameshows have too! From Deal or No Deal to Who Wants to be a Millionaire, they’ve all been covered! Thanks to an impressive piece of technology, Big Time Gaming (BTG), another major casino software provider has been able to create mind-blowing slots with impressive pay-outs! Deal or No Deal Megaways may have been released by Blueprint Gaming, but the 6-reel engine with as many as 117,649 ways to win is owned by BTG.

By leasing out the Megaways reel engine, BTG have become one of the best iGaming suppliers out there, despite offering their ‘kit’ to rival brands. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is their own development, rolling off the conveyor belt with cascading symbols (winning symbols are removed and new ones fall into place!) and an increasing multiplier of up to 10,000x during the free spins feature.

Movie Masterpieces!

One of the most iconic, nostalgic and fun-filled British movies of all time is Carry on Camping – a 1969 production following a pair of loveable rogues who trick their girlfriends into going on a camping trip to a nudist campsite! If it as straight-forward as this, there would be no movie, and believe me when I say there are many bloopers along the way. And what better plot to base a slot machine on? Blueprint Gaming have sewn plenty of hilarious antics into their very own Carry on Camping slot and it’s a must for any British comedy fan.


Off to London for the next blockbuster movie, despite the cast being from both the UK and US. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the British author, created a fictional character known as Sherlock Holmes back in 1887 and from there, he has gone from book to TV, from TV to film and now online casino slots! Calling all budding sleuths, IGT have a case for you to crack in the Sherlock Holmes: The Hunt for Blackwood slot. Join Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as you enter the humble dwellings of 221B Baker Street London, as you try to uncover the crimes of England’s capital.

British Influences

Take the HBO production of Game of Thrones, for example. Yes, the company behind the gripping storylines may well have been American, but the television series was also filmed in many different set locations in Northern Ireland. Microgaming, the Isle of Man based software provider took the global television phenomenon and delivered it via an immersive 5-reel engine. Actually, they created two online slots: one on with 243 ways to win, and the other on a fixed 15 win-line engine. Players could relive popular scenes from the smash-hit series as well as being able to benefit from multiple bonus features.

NetEnt, the award-winning Swedish software provider also took inspiration from the UK television category for one of their most popular slots – Vikings, an iconic and historic show packed with action, blood, gore and bountiful bonus features. Fans of the show can follow Ragnar Lothbrok and his army on a quest to discover new lands and treasures across a 5-reel, 243 ways to win reel engine. Players are transported to the clifftops of Lough Tay in County Wicklow with every spin of the reels and when those symbols come into play, action from the series plays out once again!
