August 21, 2015


Hollywood is not only for America. Movie fans all over the world avidly watch Hollywood movies and follow the personal lives of Hollywood stars. A few years ago, Playtech, the leading online casino software provider, paid tribute to two of the greatest Hollywood legends through online pokies. These pokies brought on the reels various facets of the lives of Marilyn Monroe and John Wayne that the present generation is only vaguely aware of. These pokies can be played at all Australian online casinos powered by Playtech, such as Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.

Marilyn Monroe is the greatest sex symbol of all time and this online pokie has vintage icons of the Hollywood star. One of them is the wild symbol that doubles payouts and also awards the top line payout. It is an expanding wild and it creates a full length image of Monroe with her skirt billowing in the air draft. All Monroe symbols start paying when two appear from left to right on active paylines. The other symbols include a magazine, an old fashioned camera, a star and playing card icons in shocking pink. The Marilyn Monroe logo symbols trigger the Backstage Bonus. You are initially awarded 10 free spins and a 2x multiplier. You can select pin-ups of Monroe to win extra free spins or multipliers. You can win up to 45 free spins with a multiplier up to 10 times. The free spins can be retriggered indefinitely.

John Wayne ruled the Westerns at Hollywood for five decades. The reels of his online pokie are appropriately set in the main street of a Western town. The wild symbol is a full length color image of Wayne. It also offers the top line payout. You will also find three black and white photos of Wayne from his earlier movies. The other thematic symbols are Wayne’s hat, red scarf and cowboy boots. John Wayne was known as Duke and one of the bonus games in this Playtech pokie is Duke’s Badge Feature. You select one of the badges to win a random cash prize. The more exciting bonus game is John Wayne’s Ranch Bonus. Here you are initially awarded 3 free spins with a multiplier of x1. Then you go to the ranch and shoot at cans. Each hit gives you more free spins, or an enhancement of the multiplier or additional cans to hit. The free spins are also made more interesting. There is a 'More Free Games’ symbol that awards four more free spins. A mystery extra wild symbol may be added as well.
