The king of the Western John Wayne may not be around any more, but the legacy of John Wayne lives on forever as a part of popular culture. Now the John Wayne slot can be added to this man’s great legacy.
The latest video slot machine from Playtech features the Duke taking another journey through the Old West. Join him as he saddles up his horse and takes on one more journey, giving players the chance to win prizes, free games, multipliers, mystery wilds and scatters, and much more in the process.
John Wayne slot pays homage to one of the greatest western legends to have ever lived. Already, in a very short space of time, it’s proven to be a big hit in the online gaming world. The high quality graphics and the wonderfully thematic soundtrack draw players in and make them feel like they’re really on the frontier.
Playtech spared no expense turning this game into a real Western treat. Every aspect of the 5 reels and 25 paylines featured are designed around John “The Duke” Wayne, with the game featuring truly stunning attention to detail.
As you’d expect the symbols in John Wayne slot are centred on cowboys, including three black-and-white images of the Duke himself. Also included are a cowboy boot, a neckerchief, a cowboy hat, and a sheriff’s badge. The game also features playing cards from ten to ace to plug in the gaps.
As mentioned previously, John Wayne slot features 25 paylines and you’re able to bet on as many or as few as you want. You can also set your bet per line. Bets start out at just $0.01 cent and can go as high as $50. The total bet is your bet per line multiplied by the number of active paylines. So as you can imagine, the maximum bet in this title is legitimately jaw dropping.
There are a number of different payouts available in John Wayne slot. To land a payout all you need to do is match up three symbols in order from left to right on an active payline. The smallest amount you can win is 5x the bet per line for lining up three tens, jacks, or queens. Matching up five of the John Wayne Wild symbols grabs you the jackpot of 3,000x times your baseline bet.
John Wayne slot also features a selection of bonus features that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. The wild symbol is a colourful image of John Wayne himself. The wild symbol takes the place of any other symbol, except for the bonus symbol and the “Duke’s Badge” symbol. Getting two symbols and one wild automatically nets you a win.
The “Ranch Bonus” feature kicks in when you land a bonus symbol on reels one, three and five in one spin. When this game starts you’re sent to a shooting gallery where you have to shoot down some rusty old tin cans. You instantly win three free games and if you manage to hit the cans you can win even more free games, a multiplier bonus, extra bullets, a re-trigger bonus for the free games, a mystery extra wild symbol, or even a mystery extra scatter symbol.
The game is over when you run out of bullets, following this you’re taken back to the slot machine where you use up any free spins you won and keep your other prizes.
If you manage to line up three or more sheriff’s stars you get access to “The Duke’s Badge”. When this game starts you’re given a range of badges to choose from. Pick the one you want and you win the cash prize on the back of it. The more stars you can get your hands on the higher your winnings.
While John Wayne himself was able to rule the silver screen across his 50-year career, the question about whether his slot machine will have the same longevity still needs to be asked.
Okay, it might not last 50 years, but John Wayne slot is still an excellent addition to the Playtech catalogue. The graphics of the game look great and the action really kicks in when you start playing the can-shooting game. When push comes to shove, John Wayne slot is a good little slot machine that will keep you entertained for hours on end.
