James Dean is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot game developed by NextGen Gaming. The game honours the memory of the legendary US actor, James Dean, who starred in films such as Giants and Rebel Without a Cause, but died in 1955, at the age of 24, in a car crash. The game includes a range of bonus features including wild re-spins, a free spins round with additional Legend Spins that have a 5x multiplier, the James Dean Pick bonus and a gamble feature.

Lots of exiting action!

The game has a hazy background with bright blue lighting and an almost supernatural look. James Dean himself stands to the left of the reels looking down on the symbols spinning round. The reels are actually made up of a grid of 3×5 individual blocks of symbols and the symbols include a silver sports car, a motorbike, a reel of film and sunglasses, as well as high playing card values. The Walk of Fame star is the scatter symbol. It pays out for two or more anywhere on the reels and is the key to triggering the free spins bonus round. James Dean on a purple background is another scatter and is responsible for triggering the Pick bonus game. James Dean with the blue background is the wild symbol and substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter symbols and the clapper symbol, to complete a winning combination. It is also the key to the Wild Re-Spins feature.

Landing three James Dean wild symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 activates the Wild Re-Spins bonus feature. One of the wilds will expand to cover the entire reel and you will be awarded three free spins with the wild reel remaining in place. All wins will be tripled during this feature.

Landing three or more Walk of Fame star scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round. Players will be awarded ten free spins with a 2x multiplier. The clapper symbol is added to the reels and each one landing during this feature adds up to three free spins (known as Legend Spins) to the round. The Legend Spins are played at the end of the round with a multiplier value of 5x.

Landing three of the purple background James Dean scatter symbols anywhere on the reels triggers the James Dean Pick bonus. Players can win:
– Up to 150x your bet during the base game
– Up to 300x your bet during the free spins round
– Up to 750x your bet during Legend Spins

In addition, there is a gamble feature available after every winning spin that allows you to either collect your winnings or to play to double or quadruple your winning payout by correctly guessing the colour or suit of the next playing card to be drawn. However, if you guess wrong, you will lose your winnings.
