John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen
The most famous Hunter in all of casino land makes a welcome re-emergence thanks to Pragmatic Play in their 5 reel, 25 payline video slot promising more high octane slot escapades.
Catch elusive Scarab symbols in John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen to help you unravel the mysteries of Ancient Egypt alongside the intrepid John Hunter as you dig for wins worth a max 10,500x.
Oh, and there are also second chance Spinback free spins up for grabs if you encounter a string of near misses, too.
Having explored the far flung outer reaches of the globe in search of lost riches, the tireless John Hunter beckons us to the well-trodden grounds of Ancient Egypt for the third instalment in the series. The game takes place among the sandy plains of the sacred land flanked by pyramids to leave us in no doubt as to where we’ve disembarked, while an exotic backing track helps carry the game along.
As with most Pragmatic Play slots, the graphics are rendered bright and colourfully. A scan of the paytable reveals the less valuable playing card icons running J-A, along with the Egyptian deity Anubis and naturally, the star of the show himself, John Hunter, doling out the richer prizes. Your handsome sidekick rewards you with payouts reaching 32x your wager in exchange for five of a kind.
Gameplay & Features
As per slot convention, wins are formed by lining up 3 or more identical symbols across adjacent reels, beginning at reel #1. Wild symbols play a prominent role here, stepping in for all regular symbols to assist in the formation of winning combos.
John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab also comes with a pair of lucrative bonus features to help ramp up your win potential, discussed below.
The appearance of 3 or more Scatters on the reels sets the bonus round in motion, which begins with 8 Free Spins.
Once the round concludes, the values of all money symbols are added together and displayed to the top right of the grid, before an oversized Scarab money symbol joins to cover reels #1 to #4, prompting the fifth reel to spin. Should a Collect symbol now land, the entire value of the pot is awarded - resulting in wins maxing out at a considerable 10,000x your wager.
And should you catch 3 additional Scatters during the feature, you can buffer your free spin haul with 8 extra spins - with no ceiling on the number of retriggers making for some sky high potential.
Money Collect Feature
On top of Free Spins, abundant riches also lie behind the game’s Money Collect Feature.
The round kicks off if you ever manage to land cash-carrying Scarab symbols on reels #1 and #4, plus a Collect Scarab on reel #5, simultaneously.
Doing so prompts one of the following features to come into play:
- Collect: all cash values are added together and paid
- Extra Credit Collect: this symbol’s value is added to all money symbols and then paid
- Multiplier Collect: the value of all collect money symbols is multiplied by a max 25x and paid
- Expanding Collect: all money symbols expand to cover entire reels
- Respin Collect: all money symbols become sticky while other slot spaces spin
Go five winless rounds playing the slot to earn yourself one free spin to use on Money Train thanks to Spinback - our industry-first second chance feature.
