Pragmatic Play – John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure – Free Slot Game

In the course of a successful game round, as always, you’ll have to make many hard decisions to get all sorts of things done. Fortunately, the first ones are simple: how much do you want to bet?

Your bet can range from 0.20 to 100 euros. So, this is a slot machine that is suitable for all types of world travelers: for the one who doesn’t mind staying in a small tent and for those who dream of nothing less than a packed 5-star hotel with all the comforts.

You can also adjust other settings, such as volume, in the settings section. Playing automatically is also an option, but this can interfere with some of the exploration gameplay.

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure – Features

This is a 5-reel slot machine where the winning combinations are formed from left to right. How many winning combinations do you think there are? 20, 50, 100? Think again. You have 7776 different winning possibilities, which means that after pressing the spin button, you don’t have much time to guess the exact winning combination.

The different winning possibilities are achieved by symbols of different sizes: each reel can display between 2 and 6 symbols.

While watching the reels spin, you can enjoy the Mesoamerican atmosphere thanks to the night background that shows the outlines of Aztec temples and glowing torches. The reels are set in a golden frame with intricate stone sculptures.

On the reels, the symbols of the playing cards are highlighted, but as always, they are not worth much. So let’s talk about the ones that are: John’s hat and a whip, burning torches, toucans, panthers, snakes and, well…. John Hunter himself. Which, by the way, is the most valuable symbol of all.

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure Wild Symbol

The wild symbol is a totem. This is essentially an emblem to identify a tribe or clan, usually represented by a sacred object or spirit being. You won’t miss it because it looks like a golden mask that stretches across the edges of the symbol lines, with the word “Wild” underneath.
It can substitute for all other symbols (except the scatter), but it only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure – Bonus Features

The bad news is that there is only the one bonus feature to look forward to. The good news is that this free spins round has serious potential.

To activate the free spins, you need three Astezian shield symbols, which can appear anywhere on the reels. Unlike spear-throwing natives or carnivorous plants, these are the scatters.

There is no adventure without a moment of suspense where you don’t know what will happen next. Think of the scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indy’ has to pick the cup he thinks is the Holy Grail and the moment of suspense where it will either make it or pretty much dissolve into dust.

It’s a similar situation here. Before each free spins round, the bonus wheel determines how many free spins you get. With 3 scatters you can get 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins, one more scatter and you are guaranteed a minimum of 10 free spins. With 5 scatters you will get at least 15 extra rounds to play, but of course in all cases you will be asking the Aztec gods to give you those 25 free spins.

However, the number of free spins you get is not necessarily the same one you started with. On the contrary. If you get two or more bonus scatters during the free spins, you will get additional free spins:

  • 2 bonus scatters will give you 3, 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins.
  • 3 Bonus Scatters give you 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins.
  • 4 Bonus Scatters give you 5, 10 or 15 free spins.
  • 5 Bonus Scatters give you an impressive 10 or 15 free spins.

As if the treasure of free spins wasn’t big enough, a smaller wheel at the top of the screen just before each free spin decides if it’s about to add one of the following multipliers that are applied to each win: 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x.

What is the multiplier for additional free spins you win in the bonus round? Fortunately, you asked. It’s the same one that has been in play after you trigger those extra free spins.
