Based on the 1992 film starring Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone, this Basic Instinct slot machine will send you back in time.
The scene is set in the dark nightclub with Catherine Trammel (Sharon Stone) glaring at you from the left hand corner of the screen. And that’s not the only place she will have eyes on you, as she also features in many of the wild symbols and the instant cash bonus game.
Other symbols on the 5×3 reels include the shiny silver A – 10, along with the higher paying ice picks, gun, police badge, handcuffs and car. All items that if you’ve seen the film, you might recognise.
Those might be what make this Basic Instinct slot blend in with the overall theme, but what makes it stand out is the 243 ways to win and wild features.
On any other slot machine we would welcome 243 ways to win reels, however here the feeling that you will get any decent wins during the main game are lacking.
With small wins, not even covering your bet or a few 2x to 4x your bet wins every now, the feeling that you’re casino balance is starting to dwindle can happen fast.
That’s not to say that there aren’t some decent wins to be had, just that you will have to have the patience to wait out the low periods, before you can hit one of the bonus games.
The bonus game within this Basic Instinct video slot where you will probably win your biggest wins is that of the Bonus Round.
You can trigger it by finding the Bonus Wild covering all three symbols on reel 3.
You’ll then be taken to the interrogation room where you’ll be presented with 12 mystery boxes and the white coated, crossed legged lady herself.
Your job is to keep picking from the boxes revealing cash prizes. If you find the gun you win the killer progressive jackpot prize. If you find the pair of handcuffs you end the game and take your winnings.
Here, the most it rises up to is a thousands, rather than tens of thousands or millions, and not worth playing for just the jackpot prize.
The wins you get here are probably not going to be huge. We’ve experienced wins of 20x – 30x our bet upwards of 60x our bet.
The great thing about these free spins though is that you can get any number of spins, from 20 up to 50 or so, and you can trigger the pick me bonus from within them; increasing your overall win.
Or at all. Unfortunately the low to medium variance of this game mixed with the un-thrilling top jackpot amount makes us think we should be playing on MegaJackpots Siberian Storm or even Playtech’s Gladiator Jackpot.
What brings this game up to playable is the pick me bonus game, with some decent 100x your bet plus wins available.
A betting range of 0.50 up to 500 per spins doesn’t really cater to the smaller betters out there and more to the big betters. But be careful with your budget as it can take a good few spins before you hit either of the bonus rounds.
In all the film plays out better than with this video slot, and if we were you we’d probably head over to one of the other jackpots slots and have the chance to win tens of thousands or millions.Play Now at Leo Vegas »
