A Man in Black Themed Slot Featuring an Unmissable Bonus Wheel
Johnny Cash was one of the true legends of the music industry, having sold an incredible 90 million records worldwide. Cash was primarily regarded as a country music artist, although his music would span many genres. Hits such as ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Walk the Line’ would help Cash achieve that legendary status, and they can both be heard playing this WMS designed slot. With sevens and bars on the reels, the game has a classic feel, to go with those classic hits.
The Johnny Cash slot is perfect for all music fans out there – though you don’t need to know this artist to enjoy a lot of different features:

The ‘I Walk the Line’ feature is an interesting one, as it fills the middle reel with wilds. This is highly significant as a single wild anywhere on a win line guarantees at least a small win – so yes, you might have worked out that this means a pay out on all of the win lines in pay. Of course, it can get much better than just a small win. Line matching symbols up on reels 1 and 3 and you might be looking at a bumper pay day.
This second feature is a free spins bonus round. In this feature you’ll earn up to eight free spins. However, there is an added bonus as one of the spins will be guaranteed to take place on the large bonus wheel. Ideally, you’ll enjoy a series of wins during the fee spins, and then enjoy the guaranteed win offered up by the wheel.
On the bonus wheel you’ll find most of the segments carry simple cash prizes. However, the four largest segments are for the progressive jackpots, each of these segments also showing a different image of the Man in Black. The four jackpot levels are mini, minor, major and grand, with the grand prize usually offering an impressive four figure sum.
The Johnny Cash slot plays out on a simple three-reel set up, featuring a total of 10 win-lines. The most significant symbol in the base game is the wild, which once again carries an image of the singer. This wild is two symbols high, meaning it can fill a reel on occasions, making those large pay outs likely.
Joining the singer on the reels are a bunch of traditional symbols. You have the sevens, which have been a mainstay of casino slots since their inception. The single, double and triple bars all make an appearance too. As is usually the case, those bars pay out on their own, while a combination of the three symbols is worth a win too.
You can spot the Johnny Cash slot from a distance on the casino floor. The large bonus wheel towers above the game and it literally does have a ‘ring of fire’ around it. Beneath this is a screen showing the jackpot prize amounts and video clips of the singer in action. The lower screen is where all of the reel action takes place.
With those sevens and bars in play, as well as a handle to spin the wheels, this is about as retro as they come, meaning the game will appeal to all classic slot fans.
The soundtrack is excellent too, as you’ll hear the following five Johnny Cash songs throughout the play – ‘The Ring of Fire’, ‘Walk the Line’, ‘Hey Porter’, ‘All Over Again’ and ‘Cry, Cry, Cry’.
Occasionally, a three-reel slot can surprise you and this WMS designed, Johnny Cash themed, slot falls into that category. The base game is an enjoyable one, as those big wins that 3-reel games can offer up are only ever a spin away. However, it’s the bonus features that really set the game apart. With wild reels and free spins to enjoy, there is a nice variety about the game. A spin of the bonus wheel only adds further excitement – especially if it slows down around the biggest jackpot prizes.
