The Rebel Slot Machine

The cult classic Rebel Without A Cause is clearly what has inspired this slot machine from iSoftBet, or more accurately, the actor James Dean has. His staring off into the distance won over hearts at the time, and his peepers still seem to be drawing people in to this day, even despite the actor having been dead since 1955.

As this is a slot machine borne of inspiration from another popular medium, you’d expect the features to be as extravagant as ever, the brand using every ploy possible to get you playing. But that doesn’t happen here. Instead, the 5 reels are very basic in their set up, with only a scatter and wild offering any form of bonus. 

Usually this lack of depth would bother us, but when you look at the attention to detail upon the grid, you begin to realise that the emphasis of this online activity is the way it looks, not the way it plays. Of course, in knowing this, you already start to allow the disappointment to build, as a game based on looks can’t possibly be enjoyable – can it?

Fancy Cars

James Dean was a lover of fast cars, which made his death all the more ironic and poignant as an automotive accident is what killed him. 

However, in The Rebel, the car upon the matrix will be bringing you good luck instead of bad in the form of cash; users can get up to €1,000. Although this is a great amount to add to the kitty, it doesn’t mean the scatter warrants being called a bonus, as no additional level is to be found here, or at least we didn’t find one. 

As wild as the cars themselves, James Dean was a bad boy who dominated the screen with an aura never before seen, which is probably why he’s wound up as the wild for the title. Wilds can be hugely rewarding symbols, and not just because they change up the combinations upon the grid, but also because they can bring in a lot of money; in The Rebel you can gain 4,000 credits. 

Icons of a Bygone Age

As for the rest of the paytable, well that consists of stars that have also departed from our world all too soon, such as Elvis and Marilyn Monroe, each of them taking their place as king and queen of the game. 

Alongside this pair, you also have various imagery associated with the general rebellious persona, such as a pen knife, lighter and so on. Basically, the symbols up for grabs are a mixed bag of cinematic history and iconic iconography. 

Entry Fee

There’s a demo mode for those of you who want to avoid paying with cash, but for those out there that want a real experience, you can start from a wager of just €0.20. This can then be upped until you hit the limit of €25 via the options found on the control panel. 

Bringing the game back to life when all other avenues of play have failed, is the Double or Nothing add on, a feature that only triggers should a customer make a win. The prize can be any size and be found anywhere on the grid, it just needs to pay from left to right and the additional gambling feature will be yours. 

The engines will roar as you make a choice between a black king or red queen, with the chance to double your earnings up to five times. Just as possible though, is the fact that you lose everything and have to start from scratch. This option is only for the truly rebellious among you. You know who you are. 

Rebel Rebel

This is a slot machine that should be enjoyable enough, especially given its popular culture theme, and yet it just doesn’t do it for us. It tries too hard to be as cool as James Dean, and fails in doing so. If iSoftBet had given more intricate bonuses The Rebel may have been able to claw back its reputation, but as it is it’s just a lonely loser. 

Consider this the first time we’ve been deeply disappointed in a slot from the brand, which goes to show both the failings of this game, but also how on the money the brand usually is.
