Stake Logic Games have designed their slot machine to look like something out of a mafia movie – the cars and the city suggest this slot is based within the 1940s and looks almost like a scene from the smash hit Godfather movie franchise.
The reels are set in the heart of a city at night, with twinkling lights coming from the windows of the skyscrapers and various buildings. The street behind the slot machine is eerie, foggy and was once a crime scene for murder.
John Doe stands to the left of the reels to help you on your way to uncovering the crimes whilst analysing the evidence. In this game, you can’t trust anyone, because even the police officers are waiting to point the finger at you. Symbols that you find on the reels are; newspaper wilds, police badge, John Doe, journalist, police officer, murderer with a machine gun, attractive private detective, case files, bullets and a murder scene.
John Doe has 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines. The buttons beneath the reels will allow you to adjust your bet to suit your budget – from 2.00 to a maximum of 40.00 a spin.
The biggest payout that can be achieved from this slot machine is 100,000 coins, by spinning in five of a kind of the police badge scatter symbols. John Doe will award 5,000 coins for five of a kind whilst four of a kind of the police badge scatters awards 4,000 coins.
The John Doe slot machine has three features and these features can offer big potential wins. The special symbols you need to look out for are:
- Wild: the newspaper wild will replace other symbols that make up this slot game to help create wins on your active paylines and appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.
- Wild nudge: a wild nudge can automatically be awarded after any spin of the reels. A random reel will be chosen and that reel will drop down one in the hope of dropping in a symbol to help form a winning combination – if this happens, another wild symbol nudge will be added and will continue up to a maximum of three nudges.
- Scatter: the police badge is the scatter symbol and not only does it award the non-progressive jackpot, but it can award a coin value win for matching three or four symbols on your reels.
Stake Logic Games have created many online slot games, but John Doe is their only slot machine to offer a superhero style design. Other titles offered by the company include classic slots such as Simply Wild, Club 2000, Game 2000 and Random 2 Wild. We found John Doe slot game to be a simple game to play with limited features.
It is a medium to high variance slot with little wins being triggered more often than big wins. The wild nudge feature can award mega wins – when it decides to make an appearance that is, especially when you combine this feature with wild symbols.
We recommend watching the introduction into the slot game as it adds a bit of background and atmosphere to your gameplay. John Doe is highly animated because when you trigger a win on the reels, the symbols that form that win will come alive. There is a demo version available should you wish to try before you buy.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is 95.97%.
