John Wayne Slots
The John Wayne slot game was created by Playtech and was released in November 2012. As its name suggests, this slot game is based on the 1930’s actor John Wayne. This slots game is available for free practice and for real money wagers. The John Wayne slots has proven to be very popular among players with its iconic graphics and large payouts and can be played in popular casinos for real money.
Obviously John Wayne is the main character of the game and his purpose is to protect his town. The graphics are replete with cowboy imagery and the slot game benefits immensely from the very realistic Western-themed soundtrack. However, the design and visuals do fall short a bit as the game is not in 3D. When playing the John Wayne slot, you will be trudging through the Wild West with the Duke – John Wayne and his trusted steed – Dollar. The user interface is beautiful and does very well at recreating the western theme that we see in Hollywood Western classics that we all love.
Key Features of the Slot
