James Dean was an American actor turned absolute icon. Dean’s name was synonymous with living against the grain, banging one’s own drum – his teenage fans elevated him to nothing short of a god amongst men. James Dean died at the very young age of 24, having been killed in a tragic car crash. This only served to cement his legacy in history.
NextGen Gaming has developed an online slot in honour of the legendary bad boy. The game is played on 5 reels and 25 paylines, with the scene set firmly in the 1950’s.
James Dean Symbols
James Dean was notorious for living life to the extreme – fast cars and motorbikes were at the order of everyday life. Besides these, you will also find a pair of sunglasses, a reel of film and a selection of playing cards on the game’s reels.
Playing cards pay out at a higher than normal rate; rolling in at up to 500 credits for a five in a row combination.
Wins are scored from left to right.
The reel of film and the cool sunglasses pay out at 20 credits for 3 or more of a kind on an active payline, each. The motorbike spins in at up to 2 000 credits for a winning combination, and the fast car at up to 5 000 credits.
The wild symbol is James Dean himself. As well as substituting for all symbols but the scatter symbol, the wild will also multiply your winnings by 3 and award a X3 re-spin, whenever three or more are landed on the reels during any one spin.
The scatter symbol is the Hollywood Boulevard James Dean Star. The bonus symbol is an additional James Dean symbol; this time the actor is dressed up in a red sweater.
James Dean Pick Bonus
The James Dean Pick Bonus is activated by landing 3 of the red sweater James Dean symbols anywhere on the reels. Multipliers galore is the award up for grabs during this feature – up to a multiplier of X150 applied to all wins.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Free spins offer a chance at large payouts. The James Dean Free Spins Bonus Round is no exception in this regard, and is awarded whenever 3 or more of the James Dean Star scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Not only are 10 free spins awarded as a rule, but all winnings tallied during the free spins are multiplied by two.
Best of all is that it’s not over until it’s over – the James Dean Free Spins Bonus Round can be re-activated from within the Free Spins Feature.
James Dean Gamble Feature
The gamble feature has become increasingly popular amongst players, and can be played up to 5 times after any spin yielding a win. Guessing the correct colour of a playing card will multiply the winnings scored during the particular spin by 2, and accomplishing the same feat with regards to the card’s suit will multiply winnings by 4.
