James Dean slot review
James Dean is powered by NextGen Gaming and has 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £50 a spin, the game is based on the legendary American actor who became a cultural icon due to his 1955 film Rebel Without a Cause. He did young in a car crash cementing his status as a legend.
With symbols such as motorcycles, sports cars, film reels, sunglasses and the man himself, there’s a few bonus features to be aware of. There’s a Re-Spins feature where you will get 3 re-spins with all prizes won subject to a 3x multiplier – this happens when 3 James Bean blue symbols appear on any of the 3 middle reels. Then reel 2, 3 or 4 becomes an expanded wild for big wins.
There is also a Free Game feature which is played when 3 or more scattered James Dean star symbols appear – you will be rewarded with 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Look out for the clapper symbol on reel 3 as this grants you up to 3 Legend Spins every time it appears.
These Legend Spins play out after the free spins are over with all wins subject to a 5x multiplier! You can retrigger the free spins though with a further 10 free spins on offer – giving you 20 in total. This also means you can trigger more Legend Spins!
Finally there is a James Dean Pick Bonus feature where you can win up to 150 times your stake. When 3 James Dean purple symbols appear, you will trigger it. You then need to pick one of the symbols to win up to 150 times your bet – that simple. You can also reveal Pick Again or Win All to increase your chances of winning big.
James Dean is a pretty straight forward slot game – graphically it’s decent but nothing out of the ordinary in my opinion. The soundtrack is classic rock music which is a little cheesy in my opinion. I found it to be a medium variance affair with the free spins feature your best chance of a big win (due to the 5x multiplier for the Legend Spins).
With a similar theme, I would rather play WMS Gaming’s Elvis The King Lives which is more volatile and has better graphics/music. With it comes to NextGen Gaming, you cannot go wrong with the cult 300 Shields which is a volatile favourite. The more recently released Cash Stampede is also very good and worth playing.
