John Wayne Online Slot from Playtech
Playtech’s online slot game known as John Wayne is a five reel online slot with 25 pay lines. The game revolves around the Hollywood western actor, John Wayne, who has always been more affectionately called the Duke.
The game is designed with a western look and feel to it and even the background soundtrack applies to the theme as western styled sounds play. The reels feature images of the star and related items that spin on a five by three row grid. Bets start from 0.01 per spin and a max bet option is available.
Regular Symbol Wins and Wild Symbol
The top paying symbols include three different photographs of John Wayne, his cowboy hat, a bandana and one cowboy boot. The top paying themed symbol will pay out up to 1 000 coins but lesser prizes of 500 coins, 300 coins and 200 coins are also possible.
Playtech’s traditional online slot playing card symbols can also be found and they include 10 to Ace icons which are worth at the most a total of 50 coins.
The wild symbol features the Duke who can replace other symbols on active pay lines if a win is possible. He won’t replace a scatter or bonus symbol though but he is worth the jackpot prize if five land on an active pay line. This is a total of 5 000 coins but lesser pay outs of 500, 100 or 10 coins are awarded if he lands four, three or two times.
Multiplier Wins With the Duke’s Badge
The Duke’s badge symbol represents the John Wayne scatter that can appear in any position on the screen to be fruitful. These scatters do award prizes for appearing three, four or five times but instead of immediate pay outs there is a pick em style bonus game called the Duke’s badge bonus that triggers.
When the Duke’s badge bonus game is triggered one of the scatters present on the screen must be picked to reveal the award. If three scatters are present the award will range from 4x the entire bet to 8x the entire bet. Four scatters will award anything from 20x to 30x the entire bet and five scatters will award anything from 80x to 120x the entire bet.
Winning Free Spins With Multipliers
Playtech’s John Wayne online slot game’s bonus symbols only land on reels one, three and five. One bonus on each of those three reels at the same time will start the free spins bonus game which comes with multipliers.
At first, three free spins and a 1x multiplier is awarded but there is a side bonus game that can increase these amounts or award extra free spin features.
This side bonus game consists of shooting tin cans to reveal their awards. The awards that can be won include additional bullets for more chances at shooting the tin cans, additional free spins, bigger multipliers, a mystery wild symbols, a mystery scatter symbol and a re-trigger symbol that will award an additional four free spins.
A tin can meter that is seen on the bottom left corner of the John Wayne online slot screen will display the number of cans that can be shot at. Ultimately the feature can award up to 40 free spins and a multiplier of up to 5x.
