iSoftBet’s video slot incarnation of the provocative 1992 film, Basic Instinct, is a straight-forward game made more entertaining by its sexy theme and suspenseful movie soundtrack.
The Basic Instinct symbols and the background of the slots are all accented with various subtle shades of dark blue, with backdrop images including the San Francisco skyline and sultry shots of the film’s scandalous femme fatale, Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone).
Coin Values and Ways to Win
The five-reel Basic Instinct slot operates according to the 243-ways-to-win format, which means that payouts occur as long as three or more matching symbols appear on adjacent reels from left to right.
Basic Instinct gambling online NZ is a medium- to low-volatility slot with a max win of 364 500 coins plus access to a progressive jackpot exclusively via the game’s click-me bonus feature. The Basic Instinct betting range starts at 0.50 and goes as high and 50.00, with coin denominations ranging from 0.01 to 0.10.
Valuable Basic Instinct Symbols
All but two of the Basic Instinct symbols must appear as no less than five in a row in order to pay out and payouts range between 100 and 450 coins.
Unsurprisingly, the infamous ice pick, used by Tramell as a murder weapon in the Basic Instinct film, is the highest-paying symbol in the slots game of the same name. Five ice pick symbols in a row will yield a 1500-coin payout. The second-most valuable Basic Instinct symbol is Detective Curran’s (Michael Douglas) police badge, which pays out 500 coins for five in a row. Each of these pays out lesser amounts for two, three or four in a row.
Sharon Stone is Stacked and Wild
The Basic Instinct video slot does not have standard wild and scatter symbols. Instead, it has three different types of wild symbols that, when they appear stacked over all three rows of a reel, each activate a different special feature. They still have value if there are less of them, however, because symbols in incomplete stacks turn wild, which means that they can be used to complete any winning Basic Instinct combination.
Each of the three wild stacks reveals a different ravishing picture of Sharon Stone from the Basic Instinct film:
- The Bonus Stacked Wild
When the image of Stone dressed in a short white shift dress and coat – from the infamous leg-crossing interrogation scene – covers a reel, the Basic Instinct bonus feature is activated. This will take the player to that very interrogation room, to choose between 12 boxes with mystery contents. Boxes contain either cash prizes, a gun or handcuffs. The box with the handcuffs ends the round, whilst the box with the gun rewards the player with the Basic Instinct progressive jackpot.
And, just to keep things entertaining, a scene from the Basic Instinct film plays every time a box is opened.
- The Free Spins Wild
The Basic Instinct free spins round is triggered when the image of Stone looking out over the Black Lotus Espirit covers a reel. Each time this happens, 38 free spins are activated. Although Basic Instinct has no multiplier, the free spins become quite lucrative when other wilds are landed.
- The Dropping Sticky Wild
The final stacked wild to look out for in Basic Instinct is Stone in a backless evening gown. When this image appears, the expanded wild will become sticky and remain in place for two more spins, dropping down by one place on the rows each time.
