This online slot game was developed by Playtech and has five reels, three rows and twenty five adjustable pay lines that start at bets of 0.01. There are wild symbols and two different bonus games as well as a jackpot prize of 5 000 coins which can be won.
John Wayne Symbols and Pay Outs
There is a John Wayne wild symbol that replaces other symbols, apart from the bonus and scatters, to help make up any regular winning combinations. These are also the highest paying symbols that will pay out 10, 100, 500 or 5 000 coins which the jackpot prize when two, three, four or five symbols land in a row on an active pay line.
There are three of the highest regular paying symbols that are represented by black and white photographs of John Wayne. The symbol with the duke in a black hat pays out 1 000 coins while the other two pay 500 coins and 300 coins at the most. Additional symbols include a cowboy hat, a bandana and a cowboy boot which pay out up to 200 coins for five matching symbols in a row on an active pay line.
The reels also contain the traditional high valued playing card symbols ten, jack, queen, king and ace not on horse betting. The playing card icons are the lowest paying symbols but will pay out up to 50 coins for five of the ace symbols on an active pay line.
The Duke’s Badge Bonus Round Feature
The Duke’s sheriff star symbol is the John Wayne online slot game’s scatter symbol. As scatter symbols they do not need to appear on a specific pay line to pay out but instead of instant pay outs, these symbols trigger the Duke’s badge bonus feature.
This is a pick em type bonus feature where any one of the scatter symbols appearing on the screen can be selected to reveal a prize. A minimum of three scatters must be present to receive from 4x to 8x the total bet amount. Four scatters award 20x to 30x the total bet amount and five scatters award 80x to 120x the total bet amount.
Free Spins Feature and Multiplier Awards
The John Wayne bonus symbols are the symbols to trigger the free spins feature. They only appear on the first, third and fifth reels but when they do appear on all three reels simultaneously, the free spins feature is triggered.
Three free spins are initially awarded with a 1x multiplier but there is a bonus game where tin cans must be shot in order to either increase these amounts or win additional free spin bonus features. More free spins and higher multipliers may be won as well as extra bullets to shoot more cans, a free spins re-trigger symbol which will award another four symbols when it appears on a free spin, a mystery wild symbol or a mystery scatter symbol.
