Pragmatic Play Releases New John Hunter Slot
Globetrotting hero and dashing explorer John Hunter could give any Indiana Jones a run for his money. And the good news is that Pragmatic Play has just released the fourth instalment in the studio’s John Hunter series of adventure-style slots: John Hunter and the Book of Tut. Players are this time round invited to join Pragmatic’s well-travelled hero as he makes his return to Ancient Egypt and the banks of the river Nile for an adventure that is both highly volatile as well as potentially super rewarding.
Previous titles in the John Hunter series are the Tomb of the Scarab Queen, Aztec Treasure, and Da Vinci’s Treasure. The game is this time on for the search of King Tut’s tomb and all the riches and mystery it holds. The 3x5 online slot is rich with special features and even presents the player with a paytable that rather intuitively repositions itself based on the size of the player’s wager played for that particular round. The paylines number 10 in total.
Symbols & Free Spins Mode
The symbols are either themed or standard playing card symbols. Three matching playing card symbols in adjacent order are required to register a standard win, but of the themed symbols, only two are required for yielding the same result.
As far as special bonus symbols go, John Hunter and the Book of Tut features a Wild symbol as well as a Scatter bonus symbol – with the Wild Symbol represented by an ancient book of gilded brown and the Scatter by the ancient tomb of the famous Egyptian king. The gilded book symbol will transform into any other symbol on the game’s reels in such a way that it completes a combination of standard symbols so as to award a win.
When landed three or more on reels, the ancient tomb Scatter symbol instantly triggers the slot’s Free Spins mode. 10 free spins are immediately rewarded each time the Free Spins bonus mode has been triggered. The Free Spins feature can be retriggered more than once.
The Free Spins feature makes provision for a special symbol being selected completely at random. Once selected by the game, this symbol will begin to expand and once winnings have been allocated, the special symbol will expand vertically across the entire reel-set and fill all three positions. This, in turn, gives the player a second opportunity to win for every free spin played.
John Hunter and the Book of Tut is now live and available for play at all Pragmatic Play-registered operators.
