John Wayne is a 25 line western theme pokie game based on the most famous Hollywood cowboy. You can win jackpots as high as 75,000 credits as well as free spins and a Duke's Badge feature where you can win up to 120X your total bet.
To play all line you have to bet 25 credits and credit levels start at 1c and go up to $50. This makes for a minimum bet with all lines of 25c and a maximum of $1,250. The maximum bet is more often than not lower than $1,250 and varies from casino to casino.
The wild John Wayne symbol pays 5,000 credits for five of a kind and substitutes for all symbols except the scattered Badges and the Bonus symbols which appear on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Duke's Badge Feature
Get three or more of the scattered Badge symbol anywhere on the screen and you win the Duke's Badge feature. Pick one Badge to get a win of between 4 and 120 times your total bet. The amount you can win is based on how many Badges you trigger the feature with.
The music played at the end of this feature should be familiar to most pokie players as it is very similar to the sound played when you win a linked jackpot on several of the Aristocrat games.
Ranch Bonus Free Spins
Get a scattered Ranch Bonus symbol anywhere on reel 1, 3 and 5 at the same time and you win 3 free spins and a X1 multiplier with the chance to win a lot more on the Ranch Bonus. You start of with six bullets and shoot targets to reveal the following prizes,
- More Free Spins : Adds extra free games to your total
- Multiplier +1 : Increases the multiplier by one
- Extra Bullets : Adds three more bullets for your to shoot
- Re-Trigger : Activates the possibility of more free games
- Extra Wild : Makes a mystery symbol wild for the free spins
- Extra Scatter : Adds an special scatter symbol on the spins.
The Ranch stage of the feature ends when you run out of bullets and then you move on to the free spins with all of your collected prizes. You really want to find either the mystery scatter or mystery wild to get the biggest wins on the feature.
The highest paying John Wayne symbol (Not the wild one) as the extra scatter you can pay up to 1,000 times your total bet or even more if you have multipliers higher than X1.
Clearly you can get some great free spin features on John Wayne but the way the Ranch bonus works means you can also get some fairly disappointing outcomes such as just a few free games with wins X1.
