What is this mobile slot about?

Join the Duke in the Wild Wild West with a John Wayne mobile slot that shoots straight, but doesn’t always come out on top.

Not everyone will be fans of one of the most iconic figures in western cinema, yet there’s no doubt that Playtech have managed to capture the heart of the man in this John Wayne slot game.

With images of the cowboy at varying stages of his life, to all the good caricature that makes a good old western (minus the Indian racism), this is as authentic as it gets.

But then, what would you expect from a Playtech mobile slot?

The base game can be slow going

The problem with the old west, is that in between all the action, you have long slow journey across dessert landscape, as you ride only as fast as your horse can carry you.

That’s a little how this John Wayne slot base game feels. A slow journey on your way to catching the free spins.

Not that there’s not a chance for some action if you catch a 5 of a kind win, but those are few and far between; which can certainly leave the more inpatient slots gamblers frustrated.

The monotony of the journey is, thank-fully, broken up by the fact that every 20 spins or so you get a click me bonus that gives you anything from 4x to 120x your bet.

All about the John Wayne slot free spins

But, much like so many other Playtech machines (Gladiator Jackpot or Age of the Gods slot, to name but two), the real action starts in the free spin games.

The John Wayne slot free spins has a real mish mash of features. Sometimes you get a whole load of free spins and nothing else – probably when you get the worst results.

Other times you can get extra multipliers, extra wilds, extra scatters, what feels like unlimited free spins… and then you feel like you could literally conquer the west.

Thank-fully the free spins come often in this John West slot machine to keep things lively enough that you do get a little butterfly thrill when you play.

And hey, when the Dukes call a’riding, sometimes you just got to get on that horse and chance your luck in the wild.

In-game bonus features

Wild: The coloured picture of John Wayne holding a shotgun is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reel except scatter and bonus.

Scatter and the Dukes Badge Feature: The Sheriff Star with 'The Duke' written on it is the scatter symbol. Getting 3 or more on screen starts a simple click me game where you pick one of the badges to reveal cash prizes.

  • 3 scatters: 4x to 8x your total bet
  • 4 scatters: 20x to 30x your total bet
  • 5 scatters: 80x to 120x your total bet

The John Wayne's Ranch Bonus Free Spins: The 'Bonus' symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 triggers another click me game.

Here you shoot cans to reveal prizes and what special feature (if any) you'll get during the free spins.

You can shoot:

  1. More free games (from +1 to +3 usually)
  2. +1 multiplier
  3. +3 bullets (to let you shoot for more prizes)
  4. Free game re-trigger symbol (when it lands during the free spins, you automatically get +4 extra spins)
  5. Mystery wild symbol: one of the game symbols will be chosen to act as an extra wild
  6. Mystery extra scatter: one of the game symbols will be chosen to act as an extra scatter pays.

Mostly you end up with 10 to 15 free spins, and a combination of one or two of the bonus features above.

Which is great. What you don't want is to just get more free games and nothing else, as then the free spins in this John Wayne video slot are basically wasted.

We like to get extra multipliers and extra wilds ourselves, for wins to get over 50x your bet.

Closing thoughts

If you love the man and his films, this John Wayne mobile slot does him credit. The look and feel of this casino game is iconic, even if the base game can feel a little slow at times.

Thank-god then, that it has two frequent bonus features to keeps things lively as you hone your skill as the sharpest spinner in the west.

For a sexier take on the cowboy theme, we'd also recommend you check out the Western Belles slot from IGT.
