James Dean Video Slot with Generous Re-spins, Free Spins and Legend Spins Features
James Dean video slot is NextGen Gaming's tribute to the iconic “Rebel without a Cause” Hollywood actor. The slot was released in September 2015 in commemoration of the day the actor met his untimely demise in a tragic car accident in September 30, 1955.
Appearing in the video slot's flash screen is the actor's famous quote, “Dream as if you will live forever; live as if you will die today;” heightening nostalgia in remembering the life and times of James Dean.
The Porsche 550 Spyder, the sports car James Dean was driving, on that fateful day of the fatal vehicular accident represents the highest paying regular symbol. It pays as many as 5,000 coins for every five-of-a-kind symbols appearing in an active payline.
Yet the main icons to look out for as spin outcomes are the different James Dean images, as each JD photo activates a special feature. The JD Wild Symbol is the photo with a blue background. The JD Pick Me Bonus Game Symbol is the photo set against a violet backdrop. The JD Full Reel image with green background is the Expanded Wild.
The James Dean Regular Wild and the Expanded Wild Re-spins
The JD Wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3 or 4 to substitute for regular symbols in order to help players achieve payline wins. A delightful twist could happen in the base game, if the three (3) JD Wilds appear simultaneously in all three reels. Any one of reels 2, 3, or 4 transforms into an Expanded Wild.
The James Dean animated and Expanded Wild image that takes up an entire reel as a Wild Symbol also triggers three (3) re-spins, in which all wins achieved earns 3x the equivalent win payout value.
The James Dean Pick Me Bonus Game
Another reward-giving JD photo image is the James Dean Pick Me Bonus Game symbol. If three JD images in a turtleneck sweater (violet background) appears simultaneously in reels 2,3, and 4, a Pick Me Bonus Game is activated.
A player stands to receive a guaranteed bonus prize of up to 150x the bet value placed per spin, by simply clicking on any of three enlarged JD Bonus Game Symbols. If a player is lucky, he might choose an icon that says Win All, or one that bestows another Pick Me prize.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Bonus Game
Three HWF Star Scatter Symbols activate a round of 10 bet-free spins. All wins achieved in the free round earns twice (2x) the regular payout value of the winning symbols. In addition, the HWF Star Symbol awards Scatter Pays for every, 2 to 5 of such icons appearing as spin outcomes.
An even greater feature of the Free Spins Bonus Game are the Legend Spins, awarded whenever the Clapper Symbol appears in Reel 3.
The Legend Spins
Every Clapper Symbol appearance in Reel 3 awards up to three (3) re-spins. A counter at the top of the screen keeps track of all re-spins collected, as more Clapper Symbols will likely appear during the Free Game.
At the end of the free round, the total re-spins collected will be played. All Legend Spin wins earn 5x the regular value of the payline win. Already awesome as it is as a reward-giving feature, the James Dean Legend Spins are quite generous because they can still be triggered during the extra rounds of the Free Spins Bonus Game.
Awesome is the word that could best describe this James Dean video slot from NextGen, as the game is filled generously with Re-spins, Free Spins and Legend Spins, all with value multipliers to boot!
