John Wayne had an illustrious career which spanned 50 years. Over that time he appeared in 168 movies, many of which he was the star of. It only seems right then that Playtech have immortalised John Wayne with his very own feature rich video slot.
John Wayne Theme
The designers have chosen the most fitting surroundings for the slot; a Wild West style town complete with a dusty road and wooden buildings down either side of the reels. The buttons take up the majority of the lower section of the screen which ensures everything is nice and simple to setup.
John Wayne has no less than four different reel icons, three of which have him posing as characters from his most famous roles. Other icons include sheriff stars (marked The Duke), bandannas, ten gallon hats, boots and saloon style 9, 10, J, Q, K and A designs.
Betting Options and More Functions
Did we mention John starred in 168 movies in his time; that's a great deal of variety which amazingly is surpassed by the number of betting options here. You are able to choose from 0.02 to $1,250 per spin; that's one impressive range of bets!
John Wayne Slot Features
John Wayne appears in a number of icons but it's the graphical one which plays as this slots wild. This icon is able to substitute for any other except for the star and steer bonus. Not only does this create more wins but also carries its own animation and sound bite, "let's get going little doggy" says John!
The Duke was John Wayne's nickname, given to him during his early life. Many people assumed that this name derived from his natural prowess on screen but it actually came from a dog he once owned. Anyway, I digress, because the Duke star badge will award a bonus when here or more appear anywhere on screen.
If three steer icons appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 you will be awarded the John Wayne Ranch Bonus. This takes place on a second screen where you are faced with a rack filled with Wild West themed objects. You will initially be given three free spins with a X2 multiplier then are invited to blast some tin cans with your six shooter to reveal more spins, bonuses, cans or multipliers. Once you've exhausted your ammo supply the free games will play before multiplying any wins and returning you to the main reels.
Our Take on John Wayne
From the moment we watched the initial trailer we were hooked. The range of graphics, authentic sound bites and features all combine beautifully on the reel. Then there's the fact you can win up to $250,000. If you are a fan of John Wayne then you have to play this slot. And as John says himself, "Thanks for playing, pilgrims".
