Pragmatic Play’s John Hunter series of slots has been very successful. There have been nearly ten slot in the series so far and there’s no end in sight. The studio always comes up with innovative ways to keep the Indiana Jones character alive and kicking. In his latest adventure, John Hunter goes back to Egypt once again to search for ancient treasures in the ancient tomb of King Tut.
Named Book of Tut Megaways, the slot pairs the Book of… mechanics with Megaways features. Add Pragmatic Play’s visual master to it, and you get an exciting ancient Egypt online gambling adventure that doesn’t stick to the rules.
Uncover the Secrets of King Tut
We know that ancient Egypt is full of secrets buried deep under the sands. John Hunter knows that too, and he has the guts to go on adventures in ancient tombs and pyramids where all kinds of dangers lurk. The slot has a highly volatile math model with an RTP of 96%, more than enough to get players interested. If you need something more, it pairs Book of… mechanics with Megaways features, resulting in 117,649 ways to win and plenty of exciting features.
If you’ve ever played Megaways slots, you know that cascades are in the center of it all. However, this slot game doesn’t have cascades, despite retaining the 2-7 symbols per reel. These greatly affect the number of winning ways. The maximum is 117,649 as mentioned earlier, but there’s a twist. Compared to the original John Hunter and Book of Tut – this slot game’s predecessor, you get the special expanding symbol in the base game, not just the bonus round. It is chosen randomly over the reels on any spin, and will expand to cover a reel whenever it does.
This feature may not look like much at first glance, but it can be quite rewarding. It happens more often than expected for a highly volatile slot. Expanded symbols also pay in any position, but they only expand if part of a win.
Free Spins Galore
Besides the expanding symbols in the base game, you also have a free spins round triggered with 3 scatters in sight. The more scatters you land, the higher the instant payout. The highest possible scatter win is 500x, while the 10 free games are fixed. Either way, it has a Book of… special expander always active in the bonus round, and three more scatters retrigger the bonus. If you don’t like to wait for the free spins round, you can pay for it. It’ll cost you 100x the bet, though, so think twice before you try this.
