John Wayne by Playtech
When it comes to Playtech, the general consensus is that the most played games that they have to offer among their selection are the Marvel games. However, one game that certainly gives those admittedly top notch titles a very real run for their money is the official John Wayne slot, which sees the Duke taking to the reels and reliving many of his most iconic Wild West movie performances.
Considering the man himself died in 1979, the fact that just about everyone still knows who he was is testament to his reputation and Playtech has certainly done him justice with one of the most solid games around. 25 adjustable win lines are in play and you’ll be able to sink your teeth into a typically flexible array of betting options, or even ignoring all of it to go straight for the maximum bet.
There’s Gold in Them There Hills
John Wayne’s ranch is the real money spinner on this game and you’ll want to spend more time inside it than outside! A cow skull symbol is the rather macabre scatter that you’ll need to land and one each on reels one, three and five will trigger the bonus game. The initial prize is a pitiful three free spins without a multiplier but that’s only for starters. Before spinning, you’ll be invited to shoot tin cans with a set number of bullets to unveil extra spins, additional bullets, multipliers, wilds and scatters. There’s certainly much more to those tin cans than initially meets the eye! You’ll never be sure of what kind of round you’re going to get to enjoy until your chamber is empty but the spins will proceed to play out with all bonuses applied. Even if you’re a terrible shot you won’t necessarily need to miss out as a More Free Spins symbol is added to the third reel. Land that one and it’ll do exactly what you would expect!
Turn Over Your Badge
The sheriff’s badge is also of a little significance throughout this game. It can land anywhere on the reels and three or more in view will present the opportunity to pick one, revealing an instant cash prize that is calculated as a multiple of your stake.
John Wayne is true enough to the subject matter to appeal to fans, while the overall combination of gameplay and features is sure to entice general players too. All in all, it’s a real triumph for the Duke and a game that is not to be missed!
