Theme of The Game
The game is inspired by James Bond, a fictional British Secret Service agent created by writer Ian Fleming. However, the main character in the video slot is not James Bond but a guy called James Win who will save London from danger with a silenced pistol and a glass of martini cocktail.
We do not know if our hero also prefers shaken to stirred martini, but his companion in this battle for London is an attractive Lady Spy which will be also your right hand when it comes to winning big payouts.
The video slot is developed by Bluberi Gaming, a Canadian gaming company, which has recently achieved an agreement with Microgaming to distribute their slot games. The games use the Quickfire platform and are labeled as BBI Interactive.
The biggest contribution of the software developer to the gaming industry is the protection program for various gaming concepts through patents and trademarks.
How To Play It
James Win uses five reels and three rows and is played at 30 fixed paylines. You can choose a coins size between $0.01 up to $1, meaning that you can wager from $0.30 up to $30 per spin. Set the reels in motion by pressing the green play button or opt for autoplay offering up to 30 automatic spins.
The reels are populated with the game’s logo, James Win, Lady Spy, Big Ben in the shape of the number seven, a blue Aston Martin and a pair of dice standing for high value symbols, while an expensive watch and a set for preparing martini cocktail and card suit symbols stand for low paying icons.
Though the overall appearance of the slot is pretty simple, the symbols look quite fancy with the London landscape including the Tower Bridge and House of Parliament in the backdrop of the reels.

The game is loaded with special features, starting with Wild substituting all the regular symbols thus helping you complete more winning combinations. Besides, the game is a home to Scatter and Bonus, delivering free spins and bonus rounds. Scatter depicted as binoculars with the Spin label on it triggers the free spins feature.
You have to place three of a kind on the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and you will be awarded 7 free spins. The feature cannot be retriggered, but it offers more than mere free spins as you may land three Bonus symbols and win the the London Chase Bonus features during it. But let us tell you more about Lady Spy and her role during the free spins feature and the base game first.
When you land a telephone booth serving as stacked Wild on the central reel covering it entirely, Lady Spy gets out of it and adds up to 6 additional Wilds with 2x multiplier to your reels.
If a winning combination includes more than one multiplier, each of them apply to the win which means that your payout may be increased by 16x. We have already mentioned the Bonus symbol which appears during the base and the bonus game on the reels 1, 3 and 5.
Get three of them on the reels and you will be offered to spin the wheel in order to move on the board or land on the next Mission. The missions include picking games where you are to select from the windows of a double-decker bus or one of Beefeaters in order to win an instant prize. If you land a spy symbol you are taken to the secret room where you are awarded a guaranteed prize.
The top payout in the game is delivered for having five game’s logo symbols on a payline and provided the winning combination does not include Wilds, you will be rewarded with unbelievable 30,000 coins.
However, other payouts are not that impressive, so if your winning combination with logo symbols include Wilds, you are awarded only 250 coins. The same amount is delivered for having five Wilds on a payline, while five James Win symbols deliver 225 coins.
Due to its bonus features, the game is quite interesting but what really makes it rewarding are all the winning lines it offers, thus enabling you to create multiple winning combinations.
The game will disappoint high-rollers as the top bet stands at $30 per spin, but you should try it out nonetheless. The slot conveys the charm of land-based casino games because of its sounds and visuals, but its innovative features serve well to the theme and take the gaming experience to a whole new level.
