You would be forgiven for thinking that this slot it themed around Johnny Cash the famous walk the line singer, however if this is what you are looking for then this is the wrong place. Do not be put off though as the Johnny Cash slot is a hugely entertaining game with some rewarding features. The cartoon cowboy cactus appears over the five reels and 20 pay lines, and you can expect to come across free spins with stacked Wilds, gamble prizes, and wins of up to 1,000 times your bet. So, if you are ready to head to the West and grab huge wins from the meanest cactus in town keep reading.
Design, Theme and Symbols
Johnny Cash is the latest slot from the developers at BGaming and this vibrant game provides a humorous look at the Wild West. The reels are set within a rough wooden frame, somewhere in the steep mountains, deserts, and big skies of the old Wild West.
When it comes to the symbols you can expect to find the usual playing card symbols along with themed items which include crossed 6 shooters, tequila bottles, cigars, and a hat. The star of the slot is a pistol packing cactus outlaw with a sinister grin painted on his green face. You will see this character on wanted posters and it will also make an appearance as a high paying animated symbol. Mixed in with the mechanical style sound effects is a classic cowboy tune, there is a banjo which interrupts the music to celebrate any wins. If you are a fan of cartoon styled games and enjoy Wild West theme slots this will certainly tick all your boxes.
Johnny Cash can be played for free and I always recommend that players make the use of this demo mode as it means you can get to grips with the gameplay without risking any of your own money. However, to win anything you will need to place a cash bet. The bet range starts from a minimum of 20p per spin and it goes up to a maximum of £50 per spin. Landing three or more of the same symbols on a line starting from the left will reward you with a win.
When it comes to win potential landing three of the 10, Jack, or Queen symbols will provide you with a win that is equal to 10 times your stake, landing 4 will pay out a win that is equal to 20 times your stake, and landing 5 symbols on your pay line will pay you 80 times your stake.
The King and Ace symbols will reward you with 15 times your stake for landing 3, 25 times your stake for landing 4, and 100 times your stake for landing 5. The first of the premium symbols are the cigar and tequila and landing 3 of the either symbols will reward you with 20 times your stake, landing 4 rewards you with 40 times your stake, and landing 5 will reward you with 200 times your stake. The guns and hat symbols will reward you with 30 times your stake for landing 3, 50 times your stake for landing 4, and 300 times your stake for landing 5.
The average payback you can expect from Johnny Cash is 93.9% which is a little below the average which stands at 95%. This is a medium volatility game and provides a decent balance between how often you can land wins and their values. If you access the settings tab you will see that there is an option to spin your reels quicker and you can also activate the auto mode to spin the reels for as long as you want to which provides you with the opportunity to sit back and watch the game play out in front of you. Johnny Cash can be played on all devices which is particularly good if you like to play on the go.
The features that you will come across in Johnny Cash are those that you have probably come across in other slots, however there is nothing wrong with a slot which makes use of tried and tested extras that can assist players to create multiple winning combinations. The wild in this game is represented by the sheriff's badge and it can substitute for all symbols except the dynamite to complete winning combinations. Unfortunately, the wild has no value on its own. The free spins bonus round is activated when the sticks of dynamite blow up and there are three, four or five on the same line.
The dynamite is the games scatter and will reward you with two times your stake for landing three, 10 times your stake for landing four and 100 times your stake the landing 5. You will also be rewarded with an additional 10 extra spins and although the wild can only appear on the middle three reels it does become a sticky wild and locks in place for any of your remaining spins. If you get lucky, all three rows on the middle reels will fill with Wilds before the game ends and you will land at least a four of a kind combinations from whatever appears on your first reel. Landing more dynamite scatter symbols will reactivate the feature therefore theoretically there is no upper limit on how many free spins you can play. There is also a gambling feature which in essence is a card colour guessing game. If you decide to take the gamble option you will need to predict whether a card will be red or black, getting this right will reward you with double the win, or you can guess the suit of the card and quadruple your wins.
Johnny Cash is an excellent slot game where the main character is the cartoon cactus which is rather amusing even though the other symbols used are a little more conventional. Most of the things offered in this slot including the features are standard and this is an observation rather than a criticism. If do you enjoy playing slots that offer popular bonuses including free games and stack wilds, then Johnny Cash is an excellent example. If you land full reels of stacked wilds your bankroll will certainly climb and there is the possibility of winning 1,000 times your total bet if the cowboy cactus fills all symbol positions.
I enjoyed playing Johnny Cash immensely, it provides solid gameplay and some excellent win possibilities. The slot is incredibly well designed and bursting with fun. My rating for this slot with solid 8 out of 10 and I would have no hesitation in recommending this game to all slot players.
