Johnny Cash Online Slot Review

Johnny Cash online slot review

One of our newest releases in the casino pays homage to the beloved American country music icon, Johnny Cash. Everybody loved the “Man in Black” from Arkansas who sang in a deep baritone voice and leaned into his outlaw persona. One of the most memorable events of his career was when he recorded a live performance at Folsom Prison in California in 1968, opening with “Folsom Prison Blues.”


In this B Gaming version, Johnny Cash is wild and wanted, but he is personified as a cactus in a wild western desert. Spin the reels of this lighthearted slot and you’ll hear comical lines like “I love money so much. I love you money, baby.” Then the music and toe-tapping begin. As the player, you try to collect as many coins as possible with every spin. Bonus features are included to help improve your chances.

In this Johnny Cash online slot review, we’re digging deep into the mechanics and features of this fresh new game. Learn about all of the different ways you can trigger a payout and how to maximize your returns. Johnny wouldn’t want it any other way.

Gameplay & Design

As soon as you launch the game, the Wild West theme will be apparent. The five reels are set over a desert canyon under a blue sky, and surrounding the reels are cacti and a giant heap of gold coins. Once you start playing, a tumbleweed will blow across the screen to complete the scene.

The reels are designed to resemble an old saloon; they’re wooden and there’s a “JOHNNY CA$H” sign above them. On the reels, you’ll see a fun assortment of game icons that include Western-themed symbols, plus poker icons 10, J, Q, K and A.

The themed symbols pay more than the poker ones and include iconic Western props like bags of cash, a “Wanted” poster with Johnny Cash’s face, a cowboy hat, revolvers, a bottle of Tequila, a cigar, and most importantly, Johnny Cash himself—in cactus form, of course. As you may expect, Johnny pays a premium when you land three or more matches. A full five-match line of Johnny icons pays 1000X.

Johnny Cash is a 20-payline slot, making it easy to keep track of wins. To see the paylines, scroll to the final page of the game menu where they’re displayed. Matching icons must line up on a payline, starting on the first reel and progressing to the right, in order for the line to be considered a win.


Betting in our Johnny Cash online slot review is easy thanks to a toggle that lets you increase or decrease your total stake by increments. The lowest bet is $0.20 per spin and the highest is $50, so regardless of how big or small your bankroll is, Johnny Cash has a suitable bet level for you.

Key Features

Bonus features in Johnny Cash include scatters, free spins and wilds.


The wild symbol in Johnny Cash is a Sheriff’s Badge, which takes the form of other game icons (except for the scatter) in order to create more wins. During the game’s free spins sessions, the wild takes on special properties and is restricted to Reels No. 2, 3 and 4.


The game’s scatter symbol is a bundle of dynamite which can turn into explosive wins. If three or more land anywhere on the reels (they don’t have to line up on a payline), you get an instant pay and a free spins session is initiated.

Free Spins

If you land three or more Dynamite symbols, be ready for a change of scenery. The sky goes red as your free spins session begins. You start with 10 rounds, but free spins can be retriggered easily by landing another three or more scatters. During the session, the wilds become sticky wilds, so they stay in place. With every subsequent spin, more and more wilds will stay in place, filling the reels with this beneficial symbol. Keep in mind, sticky wilds appear only on the three inner reels.

Gamble Feature

Any payout triggered in the base game of Johnny Cash can be doubled or quadrupled through the game’s Gamble feature. Click the “Playing Card” button to initiate the feature following a win. A random card is selected from a deck, and you must guess either the colour or suit. There’s a 50/50 shot of guessing the colour correctly; it’s going to be red or black. Guess right and your payout is doubled. If you want to play again you can, or if you want to grab your winnings and return to the base game, you can do that too.

Getting the suit right is trickier; it can be a heart, diamond, club or spade. With a one-in-four shot of guessing right, this gamble can quadruple your payout. Guess wrong, though, and you lose your payout and return to the base game.
