James Win is a video slot produced by the Canadian developer Bluberi Gaming and it runs on the Microgaming Quickfire platform.
Inspired by the story of fictional character James Bond, a secret agent, the video slot is played at five reels with 30 fixed payline and is developed as advanced land-based slot machine with nicely designed graphics and cartoon-like animations accompanied with the music score adding to the overall atmosphere of the game.
You will see symbols related to the theme such as the set for mixing of martini cocktails and some expensive items like watch and Aston Martin. The leading character, James Win, with a silenced pistol in his hand will try to rescue the UK capital with a little help from Lady Spy and you may end up with some nice wins in your pockets at the end of the adventure.
What We Love
We love the paying structure of the game as 30 winning lines return payouts quite frequently. Besides, all the special features of the game are really rewarding.
Our favourite feature is stacked Wild appearing on the central reel during the main and the free spins feature. We love it because of the animation it is followed by as Lady Spy comes out of the phone booth and turns random regular symbols into Wilds accompanied with 2x multipliers.
In winning combinations which include more than one multiplier, all the multipliers are applied to the payouts which may be increased by up to 16x that way. The interactive bonus round adds excitement to the gameplay and offers nice payouts during the picking games. All these features are cleverly designed to serve well to the theme with the references to the story of the secret agent and London.
What We Do Not Like
The title of the game may seem a bit far-fetched as the pun more resembles James Dean than James Bond. But much bigger problem are the payouts the game delivers as the only high winning in the game is delivered for having five game’s logo symbols on a payline on condition that no Wilds are included in this combination.
This way you can earn 30,000 coins which is a staggering amount, but we find it quite unrealistic to achieve it. On the other hand, all regular combinations pay 250 coins or less which is really low prize for five of a kind.
During a single set of free games we won 200x total bet due to the stacked Wild symbol and additional Wilds with multipliers. These features, besides lucrative 30 paylines, compensate for low payouts.
The game is affordable at a nice betting range starting from $0.30 up to $30 per spin. High-rollers might not be impressed by it, but with all these opportunities of winning, you can earn some nice payouts while enjoying a smooth and exciting gaming experience.
