Hollywood stars are usually over exaggerated these days, some of them with little to no talent, but still end up being millionaires anyway. This wasn't the case with the famous actor James Dean, loved by many and envied by more for his abilities in front of the camera but unfortunately, the great performer's life was cut short tragically. Even though he will always be remembered as a star in Hollywood, NextGen has decided that his legacy warrants a tribute in the form of a slot game and have therefore created the superb James Dean slot game.

Our Verdict:

Of course, there are many tributes to the young American Idol, but there aren't many that slot fans will love more than the excellently crafted James Dean slot game. All of the things that the acting sensation loved in his short life are incorporated in the game and players will get to pay their own respects to the legend by spinning the reels and finding massive prizes littered across the 25 paylines. The bonuses in the game are fitting of the man, and it will feel like you are living it up in 1960 with James Dean when you play this game.

Wild Symbol:

As we mentioned before, the symbols that appear on the reels create the sort of theme we would expect of a NextGen game, with great graphics and a special mood for a special actor. It was no secret that James Dean loved his cars and motorcycles - which would tragically be his downfall – and his favourites appear as symbols alongside the wild symbol which is an action shot of the iconic actor. This wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols in the game, except the scatter to produce wins.


The wild symbol is also the catalyst for a lovely re-spins feature in the game. You just need to find 3 wilds simultaneously to activate the 3 re-spins, with all prizes tripled during the feature. Reel 3 will also become an expanded wild during the feature.

Free Spins:

Apart from the re-spins feature, there is another way for players to see the full benefit of free spinning reels when they activate the scatter bonus feature. Find 3 Hollywood Walk signs to trigger 10 free spins. During the feature, all prizes will be doubled, and players can also collect legend spins which come with a 10x multiplier.

Pick Me Bonus:

There are, even more, bonuses coming your way - James Dean would be proud of the action on his very own slot game. Find 3 pick me bonus symbols to trigger feature. Players can win up to 150x your stake in this feature but, if you find it during free spins or legend spins, the prize total could be a whopping 75x your total stake! There is no better way to honour the memory of the beloved actor than playing on the James Dean slot game by NextGen.
