If you have been a slot game fanatic even before the birth of online slots, there’s no way you haven’t played the land-based version of John Wayne yet. It’s probably one of the most popular ones of its time, which puts its online reincarnation under close scrutiny by serious players. Playtech’s take on this ubiquitous slot game and famous movie character is pretty decent but I believe there are better slots of its kind.
Playtech’s online take of the land-based game features many similarities with the John Wayne slot that many gamers have come to know. The Spinning Streak, for one, is something that would excite many, but for me the delivery fell a bit below expectations. The only way to bag some decent wins on this is to hit a minimum of five Buffalo coins, which activates free spins somewhere between 8 and 50. You’re lucky if you are able to hit a Spinning Steak in these rounds, which can increase your multiplier up to 10x.
Overall, it’s a decent version of John Wayne, but serious gamers could get more out of Spinning Streaks from other similar slot games.
