Bonus Features in John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen

The John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen slot comes with a Money Collect feature where money symbols have cash prizes – you can boost these amounts with extra credit, multipliers and respins. There’s also a Free Spins feature where money symbols are collected to give you a 1 respin with a giant money symbol – land a collect on reel 5 to win the total value of money symbols.

Money Collect feature

There’s a Money Collect feature – look out for the scarab Money symbol appearing on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4. Each Money symbol has a random cash value attached – if a collect symbol hits on reel 5, 1 of the following extras will apply:

  • Collect – the value of all Money symbols will be added together and paid out.
  • Extra Credit Collect – the value from the Extra Credit Collect symbol added to all Money symbols on the screen and then paid out.
  • Multiplier Collect – the value of all Money symbols is multiplied by the value of the Multiplier Collect symbol, up to 25x, and then paid out.
  • Expanding Collect – all reels that contain at least 1 Money symbol expand to take over the whole reel with Money symbols. These are then all added up and paid out.
  • Respin Collect – all Money symbols on the reels remain in place with the remaining positions respinning to hopefully reveal new Money Symbols. They are then added together and paid out.

Free Spins feature

John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen comes with a Free Spins feature – this is played when 3 pyramid scatters appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously. With 8 free spins awarded, Money Symbols can appear on reels 1 through 4 with all Collect symbols appearing on reel 5.

All values of Money symbols are added to a bonus pot located in the top right-hand corner above the reels. Once the free spins are done, a giant Money Symbol appears on reels 1 to 4 with 1 respin awarded – if collect lands on reel 5, the value of the bonus pot is paid out. 3 scatters can also land during the feature to give you 8 more free spins – there’s no limit to how many free spins you can win.

Basically, the more Money symbols that land during the free spins, the bigger the value in the bonus pot – you can also land collect during a free spin to win that amount on that free spin too. This can lead to pretty big payouts if the symbols land nicely.

The Autoplay function from Pragmatic Play is particularly good – you can choose the number of spins (up to 100) and stop playing if you cash decreases or increases by a certain amount, if a single win exceeds an amount, if the feature is activated or if you get any win. There’s also a Quick Spin and Turbo Spin option.

John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen - Audio & Design features - ancient Egypt

With an upbeat drum-inspired soundtrack, John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen takes place with the ancient pyramids in the backdrop. Symbols include A, K, Q and J card suits – you’ll also see bags, gun holsters, Anubis (the dog god) and John Hunter himself.

John Hunter is the most rewarding symbol with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 0.4, 2 or 32 times your stake. The female Pharaoh is the wild and appears on all reels bar reel 1- it replaces all symbols bar the scatter, Money and collect symbols.

The graphics and animations are high definition and look great on smaller screens too – the quality of design is always there from Pragmatic Play.

John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen Review Summary - 10,500 x stake wins

Medium variance, John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen is all about the Money symbols – the Multiplier Collect symbol on reel 5 if what you’re looking for as it can boost Money symbol values by up to 25x. This can lead to payouts of up to 10,500 times your stake. On a normal spin or free spin, the most you can win (from the standard symbols) is 800 times your stake if you fill the reels with John Hunter symbols and/or wilds.

Overall, another good addition to the John Hunter series from Pragmatic Play – I would recommend you try Da Vinci’s Treasure (which features John Hunter) as the 60x multiplier can give you wins of 48,000 times your stake!
