Slots Review – Forrest Gump

Software Platform : Cryptologic


The Forrest Gump online slot game is based on the box office hit movie of the same name, starring Tom Hanks. The introductory video sequence features scenes from the movie and the slot game has some excellent animations within it. This online slot will definitely appeal to fans of the movie.

The symbols that appear on the reels include Forrest himself sat on a bench and another portrait of Forrest. His friend from the army - Dan Taylor – also features, as does his beloved Jenny. Other symbols include a box of chocolates, a football, an army helmet and table tennis bats.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

There are five reels in the Forrest Gump slot game and you can play up to 25 active pay lines on each spin. You can also adjust the amount of coins you bet per line. There is no option to change the value of the coins you are betting with, but the range of values you can bet per line are more than adequate to keep online slot players of all budgets satisfied.

Wild Symbol

The wild symbol is the image of Forrest Gump sitting on a bench. It appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and can substitute for every other symbol with the exception of the scatter symbol.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

The Forrest Gump online slot game uses a box of chocolates as the scatter symbol. Two or more of these symbols in view will award an instant prize, depending on how many appear. You get your total bet doubled for two of them all the way up to 200 times your total bet back if you get five. At least three scatters in view will also trigger the Box of Chocolates feature.

The Box of Chocolates feature involves free spins on a different set of reels. You get a minimum of five free games but get to open a number of chocolate boxes to potentially reveal additional free spins. There is also the Run Forrest Run Feature in which you control Forrest running down a football field. The further you get, the higher your prize. This feature is triggered if you get three or more of the football symbol consecutively on any active pay line.


You can win one of five progressive jackpots at Forrest Gump, which is part of the Hollywood Jackpots network. The jackpot game is triggered randomly and you have to select symbols to determine which of the five jackpots you are awarded.
