Based on the Basic Instinct movie from 1992, this progressive jackpot slot has some decent features which makes it an entertaining on-the-go game.
We were never huge fans of the film, so we went into Basic Instinct mobile slot with a little curiosity, but not a huge amount of excitement. So imagine our surprise when we loaded the screen and, other than the logo, there was nothing separating this game from, say, a Miami Vice slot.
Fans of the film will still find plenty here to enjoy, whilst non-fans can still get a feel for this dark murderous tale by iSoftBet casino games provider.
You’ve got your high value card symbols from 10 to King, with a city landscape in the background. Then you have handcuffs, cars, guns… about the only thing that tells you this is the Basic Instinct slot game is the iconic ice pick and the stacked wilds with Sharon Stones face front and centre.
The music is straight from the movie; though we found it doesn’t always work on every device. Some Android tablets don’t support it, and the iPad can also lack the music but has the spinning sounds.
That’s actually ok, because given a choice we’d rather play the Basic Instinct game as an Android phone slot or iPhone slot anyway. It simply works better as a slot for a few quick spins than for hours of play.
The main draw here is that Basic Instinct is a jackpot slot game. Which means the wins here can be good if you get lucky quickly, but generally speaking you won’t find a huge payoff on the base game alone.
There are three features within this game, but only two are worth your time. The way you trigger any is to get one of the three stacked wilds fully covering a whole reel (3 symbols tall).
The normal stacked wild (in red) stays sticky and drops down by one after every spin until it stops completely. It’s not the greatest of features and rarely does more than help you steady your balance.
The free spin stacked wild give you an awe-inspiring 38 free spins which we were very happy about. However, with no multiplier, it can be a little tempestuous, giving you 30x to 40x your bet as an average. Usually you’ll need a combination of this one and the Click Me Feature (blue stacked wild symbol) to get anything over 80x your bet.
That last one will hit often as it’s the way to get that progressive jackpot, and you’ve got to have a little hope right?
Much like the movie, the Basic Instinct video slot is one to re-discover in between long periods of not playing it. It’s quite good fun on short journeys and if you get lucky early on in the game, but if the jackpot isn’t big enough, you might find yourself better off playing on the more high octane Ninja Chef mobile slot for faster action.

The Killer Progressive: This is a jackpot slot and has a progressive counter on the top right hand of the screen. You can only get it through the click me feature, which comes often.
The Stacked Wilds (general info): There are three stacked wilds in this Basic Instinct slot machine. If they cover all three symbols a special feature is activated. If they only cover one or two symbols they act as normal wild, replacing all other symbols on the screen.
The Bonus Stacked Wild: Get the bonus wild with the cool blue Sharon Stone covering three symbols anywhere on the screen and you'll trigger that famous interrogation scene. You won't be peeking between the ladies legs trying to not see or see something (you're not 12 years old anymore), but you will be picking from a choice of 12 boxes.
These have either cash (hurray!), a gun where you win the progressive jackpot (double hurray!) or handcuffs where the round ends (boo...!)
Simple, occurs frequently, and you can usually depend on about 20x your bet, sometimes as much as 60x to 80x if you are really lucky.
The Free Spins Wild: This expanded wild is a dazzling coy green and when covering three symbols will activate a staggering 38 free spins. No multiplier means you are dependent on the other two wilds showing up and giving you a boost in winnings.
The Wild Drop: A passionate and dangerous red wild covering all three symbols will turn this expanded wild sticky and keep it in the game for 2 more turns, dropping down by one each time.
You can get lucky with this one, but not as good as the other two.
A slow game that looks and plays particularly well as a mobile phone slot, this is for fans of the movie and those looking for a short burst of entertainment.
Not as seductive as the leading lady, and you might be left with the words "What do we do now, Nick?" as you play through all the features. However, Basic Instinct mobile slot is still fun to discover for the first time.
