Play James Dean Slot for Free & Review

James Dean is a NextGen Gaming-powered slot which is based on the iconic American actor. Playable from 25p a spin, there are 3 bonus features to take advantage of. You have the re-spins where wins are trebled as well as getting an expanded wild reel. Then you have the free spins feature where you can get up to 20 free spins with all wins doubled. You can also earn Legend Spins where wins are subject to a 5x multiplier. Finally, there’s a pick me style feature where there’s 150 times your stake up for grabs.

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.
