Whether you’ve noticed it or not, every single casino has a theme and similarly, so do many games. While the gameplay strategy often remains the same, the graphics and sound effects often change to accommodate the theme.
These themes can relate to anything from specific locations to celebrities, movies, sports or even boardgames – the list is endless! Some of the themes make sense while others are just plain weird and we can’t help but wonder why they were created in the first place. We’ll share some of these weirdos with you.
5 Of The Weirdest Slot Machine Themes
Cash n Curry
Nothing screams gambling quite like curry, right? You’d expect the symbols to relate to the dish – and we don’t blame you for thinking that. However, the symbols displayed are fruits. It gets weirder, one of the graphics that you can look forward to seeing is someone exploding from Indian food. It really doesn’t make any sense, but maybe that’s the point?
This game features sexy aliens in a strip club set in space. You’ll get to see aliens in sexy outfits and if you happen to win, they’ll even put on a show for you. There’s a bonus round called Select a Smooch and you can pick a set of lips to kiss one of these creatures.
Many religions view gambling as a sin, which makes this theme all the more strange. Adding to the weirdness of this game is the fact that it aims to teach players about the Bible. There are even sub-themes that focus on specific characters and events. To each their own, right?
Fifty Shades of Santa
While Santa is probably the least sexy fictional character out there, he is in charge of determining who is naughty and who is nice so this one makes sense, well, not really but we tried to rationalise it. As the name implies, 50 Shades of Grey meets the festive season’s favourite, celebrity? You can look forward to seeing sexy versions of Mr and Mrs Claus, high heels, lips, masks and handcuffs. Perhaps the traditional version of Christmas got boring for the creators?
Everyone’s favourite television judge has found another way to grace our screens. The graphics include images of Judge Judy, the show’s logo and a whole lot of legal-related symbols to help keep with the theme.
We don’t even know what more to say…
We’ve seen it all. We’ve seen the generic games in its original form. We’ve even seen them reimagined in the light of our favourite movies, but what has truly blown our mind is the way in which some game developers have taken things that have no business being on a slot machine and turned them into a public game. All that we can assume is that they were created as the result of a bet or dare!
