The Forrest Gump slots game can be found at Cryptologic casinos. Cryptologic also lease their slots games out to casinos using other software platforms. Cryptologic do not as standard publish the house edge of their slots games, however we have received a figure from a source that we can't reveal due to copyright restrictions. Given the different information supplied by different casinos it is reasonable to assume that Cryptologic games are configurable and as such the figures in this review should be treated as a guideline only when playing at casinos that do not explicitly state the settings they use.
“They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money 'cause I still haven't seen a nickel of that million dollars.”
The Forrest Gump game has 5 reels, 25 paylines and you can bet one coin on each payline.
The ‘Forrest sitting on the Bench’ symbol is wild and doubles all wins.
There are two bonus features when playing Forrest Gump and the first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Football’ symbol on in a row on an active payline starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a football field. Guide Forrest up the field dodging the defensive players using the left and right keyboard arrows to steer him. The further up the field he makes it the bigger the prize you’ll receive.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Box of Chocolates’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be shown 9 boxes of chocolates and are allowed to select 5 of them. Each box will reveal a number of free games. Once you have selected 5, but will be taken to a new screen showing 9 chocolates (3x3) and a paytable down the side. For each free game you won the chocolates will disappear and be replaced once and if you receive 3 matching chocolates anywhere within the grid you win a prize defined by the paytable.
A house edge that’s a little above average is compensated for with a game that got a good theme and bonus features that are good fun.
