BASIC INSTINCT™ ONLINE SLOT REVIEW
Progressive Jackpot: Yes
Basic Instinct is an iSoftBet progressive jackpot slot that has five reels and 243 ways to win. Based on the titillating erotic film starring Sharon Stone, it comes with three bonus features. You have the Wild Drop feature where the wild drop moves down a position with free re-spins, a Free Spins feature where you will get 38 free spins and a Bonus Wild feature where you will win the progressive jackpot if you find the gun.
Before you start reminiscing about the steamy scenes, you should set your betting range the way it suits your needs the best. By clicking on "Bet 1/2/5/10" quick bet panel will help you set total bet. A small button with numbers set in the lower right corner will help you set coins size which ranges from 0.01 to 1. By clicking on "Auto Spin" the reels will turn without interruption for a chosen number of times, whereas "Spin" will set the reels in motion once.
Despite the high-octane nature of the movie that the game was based on, Basic Instinct isn't a particularly volatile slot with the variance on the low side of medium. The best chance of coming away with a killer win comes via the bonus features, especially the free spins where the 38 free spins can be lucrative.
The visuals are decent but the sweeping, orchestral soundtrack certainly puts you in the right mood to play this game. It's not quite as captivating as Sharon Stone proved to be in the sexy flick but players will still find that the slot version of Basic Instinct is still an amusing and very playable slot game.
Sexy thriller Basic Instinct was one of the most popular movies of the 1990s. The visuals in this slot version stay close to the crime theme but sans the film's most famous scene! Symbols on the reels include low-value playing cards alongside a swanky sports car, handcuffs, a pistol and a police badge. The top-paying symbol is the infamous ice pick. Land five of these for a payout of 1,500 coins.
Basic Instinct comes with a trio of bonus features that are triggered by three different stacked wild symbols.
Wild Drop Feature
When the Wild Drop appears as fully stacked, which means it is covering three symbols, on reels 1, 3 or 5, it will trigger the Wild Drop feature. While the other reels re-spin, the Wild Drop will move down a position offering you more chances to win with extra wilds in place.
Free Spins Wild
Land the Free Spins Wild in fully stacked formation on reel 3 to activate the Free Spins Wild feature. Here you'll be awarded a whopping 38 free spins!
Finally, there's the Bonus Wild. Once again, this only hits on reel 3. When it appears fully stacked, you'll trigger the Bonus Wild feature. Here you'll be presented with 12 boxes. Pick to reveal cash prizes. If you find the gun, you'll win the progressive jackpot prize. Keep picking until you find the gun or handcuffs which will end the feature. You can land the Bonus Wild during the free spins which can lead to some especially impressive results.
