Visually, John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure has an Aztec theme – set at night-time and with an air of mystery of about it, symbols include A, K, Q and J royals. You will also see flaming torches, John’s hat and bullwhip, a toucan, snake, panther and John Hunter himself. He’s the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 0.75, 1.5 or 4 times your stake respectively.

There’s also a totem mask which is the wild and appears on the 3 middle reels – it substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. Winning combinations are formed from left to right on adjacent symbols starting from reel 1. Every reel can show up to 6 symbols – the more per reel, the more ways to win.

The Book of Mystery symbol is the bonus scatter – if you get 3 or more anywhere on the reels, you will activate the Free Spins feature. The number of free spins you’ll play with depends on how many bonus scatters you got when triggering the feature:

  • 3 bonus scatters will give you 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins
  • 4 bonus scatters will give you 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins
  • 5 bonus scatters will give you 15, 20 or 25 free spins

During the feature, a random multiplier will apply to each free spin – this can be 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x. Furthermore, 2 or more bonus scatters will reward you with more free spins:

  • 2 bonus scatters will reward you with 3, 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins
  • 3 bonus scatters will reward you with 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins
  • 4 bonus scatters will reward you with 5, 10 or 15 free spins
  • 5 bonus scatters will reward you with 10 or 15 free spins

The multiplier you get for those additional free spins will be the same as the multiplier awarded on the triggering free spin. In total, you could play with 40 free spins with a 10x multiplier.

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure is quite a simple slot in reality – variance wise, it’s medium to high with payouts of over 9,000 times your stake on each free spin (with the maximum 10x multiplier). The other slot where John Hunter appeared, Da Vinci’s Treasure, can give you wins of 48,000 times your stake per spin though!
