Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Slots

Ferris-Bueller's-Day-OffFerris Bueller’s Day Off is a movie themed slot machine, with a topic that is slightly unusual, at least in the fact that it isn’t as popular as others are. This 1986 movie was quite popular at the time though, with a young Matthew Broderick in the lead role. The slot, being themed around the movie, gives you a glimpse at all the main characters from the film, but doesn’t actually show you our hero among the symbols. You get all the other actors though, with real pictures with them.

This is a slot machine with 5 reels from Cryptologic, the number of lines going up to 25 inside, while the jackpot goes up to $50,000. You can expect the feature symbols and the bonus rounds they trigger to be more than enough to keep you busy, using along the way free spins and multipliers, plus the usual symbols with scatter or wild roles. It doesn’t hurt that it has a couple of progressive jackpots as well to offer.

Features of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

You’re going to have enough things to do if you give this slot a try. Its extra symbols and bonus rounds are by no means special, but they are varied enough that you should be able to enjoy your time, especially as a fan of the movie.

The logo, with the two parents behind the movie name, will act in the wild’s role, substituting for other icons along the way, but also being limited to the three middle reels (2 to 4). You will notice that the logo wild is capable of substituting for almost all the other symbols, but the scattered badge is not among them. The fact that the Logo wild has a 2x multiplier makes us appreciate it even more, and I’d love nothing else than to have it appear in every single combination I get while I play this slot.

As it usually happens with this developer, they’ve added a scatter symbol as well. The Save Ferris badge gets you a prize, and the best thing about it is that its position on the reels doesn’t matter. You are awarded as much as 200x the triggering wager, which means up to $25,000 in this game.


Fake the Parents

The scattered Badge has an extra role in the game, acting as the trigger for the bonus game called “Fake the Parents”. Three scatters will be sufficient to get it started. Once it starts, you need to press keyboard keys, in order to get a higher number of free spins. Once Ferris manages to reduce the number of absent days, you get the multiplier as well.


Kick the Car

This is another bonus game, but one that doesn’t need symbols with special roles to start up. Two regular symbols will be enough, as long as they are on the right reels (Car on the 2nd reel and Cameron on 4th reel). Once inside the bonus game, you can click on Go and Cameron will start kicking the car. With each additional kick he gives, the speedometer will go up, increasing the multiplier that is applied to the triggering wager.

Betting options and jackpots

The full betting range in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off goes from $0.01 to $125. The lowest number is the equivalent of using a coin with its smallest denomination. The highest one uses 25 coins (covering 25 lines instead of 1), with their highest denomination of $5.

10,000 coins are awarded by the title’s most profitable combo, turning into up to $50,000. The Hollywood progressive jackpots are also available, as they are in a number of other slot machines that are movie themed. The three jackpots are called Blockbuster, Classic and Epic, the first one being the one that’s more valuable.

Design and symbols

The theme being based on a movie from 1986, you can expect to see inside various pictures taken directly from it, with faces of the actors or some of the props for a number of symbols, though a few of them still come with playing cards, so they ran out of ideas eventually. A picture with a backyard, with a boy relaxing next to a pool, is visible right behind the reels. As for the reels themselves, they’re completely white and they look basic because of it. The symbols and the 80’s style haircuts on the characters don’t help it much, but for a fan of the movie or that era, it can be a good look.

Symbols: Logo (wild), Save Ferris Badge (scatter, 200x the triggering bet), The Principal (5,000x), The Girlfriend (500x), The Best Friend (200x), Sister (200x), Rottweiler (150x), Red Ferrari (150x), Ace (125x), King (125x) and Queen (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not an easy game to love if you didn’t see the original movie and you’re not a fan, but that’s mostly due to the graphics. The presence of two bonus games and the other features offered all contribute to making it a decent slot.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Movie

A movie released in 1986, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” is a comedy that was one of the most popular that year, with high amounts registered in the box office ($70+ million). It was also one of the first movies of Matthew Broderick, then a very young actor. Other actors that were part of the movie included Mia Sara, Alan Ruck, Jeffrey Jones and Jennifer Grey. The director of the movie was John Hughes.

He tries to avoid his parents, his sister and the principal along the way.
