Based on the hit 1990s TV drama that focused on the life and loves of a gang of rich and glamorous Californian teens, Beverly Hills 90210 is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from iSoftBet. The slot version is just as flashy as the TV show and comes with 2 bonus features that can deliver 25 free spins as well as variety of wild extras. Head to LA from between 50p and £25 per spin.
As you’d expect from a slot based on American bright young things, the look of Beverly Hills 90210 is impressive. Joining the lower value playing cards are a quintet of characters from the show – Steve, Donna (Tori Spelling), David, Kelly and Brandon (Jason Priestley) who is the top payer, offering 2,500 coin jackpots.
Look out for animations from each character when they form part of a winning combo – the wild is a flashy red sports car which replaces everything bar the scatter and transformer.
The first thing you’ll notice about Beverly Hills 90210 is that it plays out in 3 different game modes. There’s traditional left to right mode, a win both ways way mode and left to right transformer mode. Winning combos are formed in the usual manner but the transformer symbol can turn multiple symbols into the same 1 to create big winning combinations. The modes are decided at random.
The main feature offering on show is a pair of Free Spins feature, both of which are triggered by the Beverly Hills 90210 logo scatter. 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels will get you 8, 15 or 25 free spins as well as a cash prize of 5, 15 or 30 times your total stake.
You’ll then have a choice. Opt for the Girls Free Spins feature and you can look forward to up to 5 extra wilds being added to the reels on each of your bonus spins. Pick the Boys Free Spins feature and up to 3 reels will become expanded wilds.
Branded slots can be a bit of a hit or miss affair – Beverly Hills 90210 largely hits the target. It’s well designed and gives a real feel of the TV show. The features are decent enough too. The transformer is a nice addition but the slot impresses most in the Free Spins feature where the wild extra can really get the action flowing. We’d opt for the Boys Free Spins feature as up to 3 expanding wilds should yield better results than up to 5 extra wilds.
Even if the TV version of Beverly Hills 90210 passed you by, the free spins features makes the slot version well worth a look. If you like branded slots, iSoftBet also offer you both Basic Instinct and 24.
