Basic Instinct Slot Review

iSoftBet’s Basic Instinct naturally takes much of its theme and inspiration from the major Hollywood motion picture of the same name. Using graphics and imagery taken directly from Basic Instinct, this slot retells the tale of a detective searching for the killer of a musician. Of course, such a theme makes it naturally appealing to anybody who has seen the film.

Of course, there are plenty of other slot games out there which are also based on Hollywood classics, and a few from iSoftBet, to boot. Platoon and Rambo are two such games which come to mind. You also have Microgaming, Playtech and NetEnt who develop movie-themed games, so Basic Instinct is undoubtedly in good company. In fact, NetEnt’s Scarface uses an almost identical gaming mechanic.

You might argue that Basic Instinct is more straightforward to play than many of these counterparts, and you would be right. However, that is no bad thing. The use of bonus-triggering wilds and the inclusion of a progressive jackpot give this game some bite.

How to Play Basic Instinct

Everything about the wagering menu (and indeed the reels) is steeped in a shade of blue. The backdrop and stylish colouration of those reels are sort of undone by the game’s imagery, though, which is rudimentary at best. Expect plenty of high playing cards to litter the reels here, alongside a few token cinematic images, such as the ice pick, a police crest, and handcuffs.

Prizes of up to 1,500 coins can be won on the 5-reel, 243 ways to win game. However, that is not what you really want to walk away with. There is a progressive jackpot up for grabs, and its value is displayed above the reels, below the skyline. You will need to trigger the Bonus Wild feature to get a sniff of that.

As for bets, you are looking at minimum and maximum stakes of 0.50 up to 50.00, respectively in this game.

Basic Instinct has an excellent RTP rate of 97.99% and is a medium volatile release.

There is a special symbol thrown into the mix, and it is a wild icon. It does not behave conventionally, so here is what to expect:

  • Wilds – Wild symbols appear as a skyline, and they can show up on the first, third and fifth reels. They can appear stacked and act as basic wilds.

Game Rules

Basic Instinct Slot Features

Wild symbols which appear triple-stacked (three symbols per reel) will become bonus-triggering expanding wilds. There are three of these, and that means that there are three possible features to trigger.

Wild Drop

If a stacked Wild Drop symbol appears fully on either the first, third or fifth reel, you will pocket re-spins. Here, the wild symbol will drop one position on each spin until it fully disappears. This is a like-for-like duplicate of the bonus round in NetEnt’s Scarface.

Wild Drop
Bonus Wild

This is the mode you are going to want to trigger and acquiring the Bonus Wild on the third reel (completely covering it) will trigger the round. You can select boxes to receive cash prizes. The round ends when you locate a pair of handcuffs. However, if you manage to snap up the gun symbol, you will walk away with whatever prize the progressive jackpot is currently listed at. That can, at times, be worth hundreds of thousands.

Bonus Wild
Free Spins Bonus

Get the free spins wild covering the third reel to trigger a free game feature. Here, you will win anything from 20 to 50 spins. There is nothing overly remarkable about this feature, except that you do stand a decent chance of landing additional spins while the bonus is in play.
