John Wayne FROM Playtech
Released on desktop in 2012, John Wayne is a Playtech slot created to pay homage to the star of old Western movies. Ride along the Duke across the Wild West in a five reel, twenty five payline game full of different bonuses to keep you interested. With a great western tune that you will hum to yourself while playing, saddle your horse and see if you are able to come home with a large haul of loot in your saddles.
HOW TO PLAY
The game features a standard five reel, twenty five payline setup that should be familiar to anyone who played slots before. Scoring a win in John Wayne is as simple as spinning the reels and getting three or more matching symbols on an active payline. The only exception to this rule is a Wild, which shows the Duke with a sandy backdrop behind him, which can give prizes with only two symbols. The game’s Scatter, depicted as a sheriff’s badge, will win anywhere so long as there are three or more of it. And to make your life easier, John Wayne also gives you the Autoplay option to let the game spin for you.

BETTING OPTIONS AND PAYOUTS
The game is anything if not flexible in how much you can spend. Your coin value can be as little as $0.01, and as much as $50. But on top of that, the twenty five paylines are not fixed, meaning you can choose how many you want active at any given time. As a result, both high rollers and more casual players can enjoy this slot. Depending on how much you want to spend per spin, you can go with as little as $0.01, or as much as $1,250 as a maximum wager. The top payout of $6,250,000 is a lot, but requires you to score five Wilds, which is next to impossible – but it offers a delicious jackpot.
SYMBOLS AND EXTRA FEATURES
While symbols are generally in tune with the game’s theme, Playtech does cheat a little and puts the low paying symbols in the standard icon set that you see in all slots. 10, J, Q, K, and A form low paying symbols. A cowboy boot, a red bandana, and a cowboy hat form middle tier icons. And the highest paying symbols are pictures of various characters from John Wayne’s movies.
Activating three or more Scatters triggers the Duke’s Badge special, which lets you choose one of the badges that activated the bonus. Clicking on one of them will give you a flat cash increase.
The ranch bonus is activated by scoring several Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. It gives you 3 free spins and an x1 multiplier, and gives you the option to get additional bonuses. Switching you to a different screen, you are given a set amount of bullets, and you shoot cans to unlock more things.
From the ranch bonus, you also get free games. You get additional Wilds and Scatters on the reel and you can keep getting more bonus spins from symbols on the reel.
John Wayne is a fantastic addition to Playtech’s library. Pairing great graphics and a fun western soundtrack, it truly gives the feeling of roaming along the Wild West with the legendary Duke himself. Players who watched the movies will undoubtedly feel nostalgic seeing old faces appear once more. The gameplay can be boring at times, but with a bit of luck, you won’t be slowed down too much. It is an enjoyable little slot, and we recommend trying it out yourselves.
