John Hunter and the Mayan Gods Slot (Pragmatic Play)
The John Hunter series by Pragmatic Play has been one of the most successful series from this developer. It follows closely in the steps of other popular titles like Book of Tut, Aztec Treasure, and Scarab Queen.
The developer has created a fourth title in this series, and it goes by the name John Hunter and the Mayan Gods. This slot will take us back to South America.
I have played all the previous titles from this slot, and I was excited to try the latest version. Here is my review:
John Hunter and the Mayan Gods uses the common 5 reels with up to 10 lines. The slot has high volatility, and for the features, you will get to work with expanding wilds, free spins scatters, and some symbol transformations.
Betting and Prizes
The slot uses the usual betting range that is common with Pragmatic Play. This means that you will be able to place bets of between $0.10 and $100 per spin.
On its 10 active lines, each will get between $0.01 and $10
I’m not quite impressed with the top rewards that the developer has offered for this title, and the highest that you can get is 500x the stake.
However, with the help of features like the free spins, you can get a jackpot of 2,500x ($250,000).
Although the slot is highly volatile, it offers a fair RTP of 96.51% which is within the average range of a modern slot.
John Hunter and the Mayan Gods Slot Features
In the middle three columns, you will get a Golden Wild which will be of great assistance.
In addition to working as a replacement symbol, it can expand under certain condition, and cover the reel.
The free spins will come your way via the Temple scatters. You will need to land them 3 to 5 times, to benefit from a payout of 50x the stake. This will also trigger up to 12 free spins.
Theme & Design
The slot uses the same old story where John Hunter is on a mission to search for adventure and treasures.
In the previous games, he has toured places like Egypt and South America, and the new title takes him back to South America, in the Mayan temples.
The design borrows heavily from the area’s ancient culture.
In addition to the Mayan Temple (scatter), and the Wild logo, Pragmatic Play has used other symbols on this slot. These include John Hunter himself, Rings, Goblets, Mayan Chieftain, Daggers, Quetzalcoatl, and low-value Royals.
John Hunter and the Mayan Gods is a good addition to this series by Pragmatic Play.
The slot is rich in features, and the design and graphic work that has gone into making this title are good.
Its high volatility does not go well with the low payout. However, its a great slot for players who are more experienced with high-risk free slots.
