In 1955, one of America’s most iconic movie stars, James Dean, sadly passed away in a car accident. To honour the memory of James Dean, and immortalise him in the online gaming industry, NYX and NextGen gaming created and released a James Dean themed slot.
The video slot features iconic images and stills of James Dean and follows a 5 reel, 25 pay line format. To represent the wild and fast-paced life of James Dean, he is appropriately the wild symbol on the reels. Other symbols on the reels include a clapper board, motorbike, sunglasses and a Hollywood star. The star is the scatter symbol and awards players when two or more land on the reels. The highest paying symbol is a sports car which can award players a maximum of 5000x their original stake.
Matching a sequence of motorbike symbols will see players win a maximum of 2000x their original bet, whereas the sunglasses symbol can help players earn 500x their original stake. Joining the high-value symbols on the reels are the standard card symbols of J, Q, 10, K and A.
A bonus free spin round is triggered when 3 or more wild symbols land on the reels. A player will receive 3 respins and either the 2nd, 3rd or 4th reel will be covered by an expanding wild symbol. All money earned during a free spin round will be tripled.
The slot has an RTP of 95.41% and a house edge of 4.59% which is fairly standard for slot games. The RTP is subject to vary, however, so should always be confirmed prior to playing. The medium volatility slot accepts bets from 0.01 to 2, making it ideal for players who like to place small, frequent bets or are just introducing themselves to online slots.
Whether or not you are a fan of James Dean, this Hollywood-inspired slot is a sure crowd-pleaser. The slot offers players multiple chances to win big, not only through its high-value symbols but also its free spin round. This slot respectfully immortalises the memory of James Dean while offering players a fun and engaging online gaming experience.
