willy-wonka-930x453Leading software developer, Zynga, is known for taking beloved, classic movies such as The Wizard of Oz and The Princess Bride then making slots out of them. And now they have taken another classic, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and made that into a slot now too. But this isn’t an ordinary, real-money slot. This slot is purely social and doesn’t rely on winnings at all. This marks a further increase in the rise of social gaming as players look not for monetary gain but for a more communal aspect to their slot experience.

Main Features

Those who have seen the film (and there are  many) would realise that it’s full of eye-popping detail and so many different colours that it would make for a visually pleasing slot. Making a slot out of it was a very good idea. But colourful symbols isn’t the only thing it has going for it.

In the film, the characters travel through the chocolate factory via various rooms which serve a particular function such as the chocolate lake room. The slot progresses through these rooms in much the same fashion. As the player makes advancements through the game, they are taken to a different room and the background changes. As well as this, players get to listen to the timeless film soundtrack in its entirety.

Perhaps the most important feature, however, is the social gaming. It’s very rare that we talk about social games here at Droid Slots but they certainly have their place in the market. This game demonstrates once again how the lines between actual gambling and social gaming are becoming more and more obscure.

It all stems from the rise in social media and our need to connect with others who share our interests over the internet. Because mobile devices and becoming more sophisticated too, the experience is more easily accessible. It is particularly useful in killing time on your way home from work. Willy Wonka is a fun addition to this market and we can’t to see how it’s received.
