John Hunter and the Book of Tut Pragmatic Play

John Hunter and the Book of Tut is Pragmatic Play new online slot that runs on 5 reels and 10 paylines. This slot belongs to the fourth installment of their John Hunter series, and it is taking you to Egypt once again. It’s one of those classic Indiana Jones type of games, but how intriguing can these really get? You can find out at any Pragmatic Play Casino for real, or here for fun.

How to Play John Hunter and the Book of Tut Slot

Set your bets and visit the ancient Egypt once again in search for great treasures.

  • Hit +/- buttons will draw up a panel where you can increase or decrease coins per line and coin value that will constitute the bet, or you can simply increase the total bet value.
  • Reels will start moving the moment you hit Spin button
  • Autoplay opens up a panel where you can choose Turbo Spin, Quick Spin and the number of automated spins.
  • Buy Free Spins is set on the left hand side of the reels, and it will help you to buy the Bonus round.

Slot Features

The holy book is both the Scatter and the Wild symbol which can substitute for all the other symbols in the game. Additionally, since it is also the Scatter, landing at least 3 of them anywhere on the reels will trigger the Bonus Spins round. When it acts as a Wild, the payouts can be paid for 3 or more Scattered Wilds, and for 5 of theme you will get paid x200 your bet.

Free Spins

Once the feature is triggered you will get awarded with 10 spins, and before the round starts, a special expanding symbol will get selected randomly to follow you throughout the feature. During the round, after the payout of regular symbols, the special symbol will expand vertically to cover the entire reel. However, this expansion will not occur if there are not enough symbols to form a win, so when the special one expands, be sure the win is yours.

Landing additional Scatters will retrigger the feature and award 10 more spins, and the round will be played with the current round’s special symbol. The good thing is that the Free Spins round can be retriggered unlimited number of times. However, if you don’t want to wait for the feature to trigger, you can buy-in and start from the base game for x100 total bet.


John Hunter and the Book of Tut is another game in John Hunter series which is a clear clone of the Book of Ra. Nevertheless, thanks to the high volatility, and maximum payout which is capped at x5000 we would encourage you to give it a spin, especially if you loved the first three parts. The first impression we got is that this is the best one yet, although it seems ordinary, but we want you to be the judge of that.

Book of Tut is another addition to the John Hunter series and this slot just like other book slots follows the similar mechanism of expanding symbols. The slot is a 5 reel, 3 row slot with 10 active pay lines. The slot grid placed in a desert which suits the entire john hunter theme. Ally symbols pay left to right and you need a minimum of 2 premium symbols and a minimum of 3 card symbols to give you a winning hit. The highest paying premium symbol is John Hunter which pays 500x, Pharaoh symbol that pays 200x, cat and scarab symbol that pays 75 times your bet size. The card symbols A and K pays 15x and the lowest paying symbols are Q, J and 10 symbols which pay 10x your bet size. The minimum amount you can bet on this slot is 10 cents. The slot also has a wild symbol which is a book and it also acts as a scatter. Hitting 5 scatter symbols gives you a win of 200 times your total bet size. The bonus feature is like other book slots where landing 3 scatters lands the bonus and you get 10 free spins where a symbol is chosen randomly and this symbol expands on the minimum hit requirement of premium or card symbols. The bonus can re-trigger multiple times and you can win a maximum of 5500x your bet size. The bonus can also be bought for a price of 100x your bet size.
I do not give this slot a lot of spins and only play it when I want to wager fast. The slot has a decent base game where card symbols hit five of a kind on a regular basis and premium symbols also give good hits. The bonuses usually land in under 200 spins and most of the bonuses pay below 100x.

John Hunter and the Book of Tut is a classic book-type slot from Pragmatic Play. I might be wrong but I believe it was one of their first games that included a bonus buy feature. The slot is inspired by Ancient Egypt theme and includes their famous John Hunter as the main character. 

At first glance I wasn't too excited to try this game as it seemed like something that's been done before. And that's quite true. The game is a classic book slot with 5 reels and 10 paylines and the only bonus feature is a free spins bonus round, triggered by book scatters. But with that being said, I think it's a good option if you enjoy book slots. I've played it many times and I enjoy the fact that it is so simple in it's design and features yet it has good winning potential. 

For 3 scatters you get 10 free spins with a special, expanding symbol.  My experience with the bonus round is that for the most part I would get a letter symbol as the special symbol,  but even then you can get a decent balance boost, as a full screen of Aces pays 150x. I haven't had any big wins with the John Hunter symbol but I've had a few 300x bet wins from other top symbols. Because of this bonus feature and the simple design it has become one of my favorites from Pragmatic Play.

All in all, this is a classic game- the design is nice and while it's not feature rich, it has good winning potential. Also I've tried buying bonuses and the average return I have had was about 50x-80x bet. I also think that the bonus buys are decent as they cost 100x bet and the game itself has 10 cent minimum bets, making it a great low-rolling slot. If you enjoy games with classic, one expanding symbol mechanic, I would recommend trying it.

This release of John Hunter and the Book of Tut from Pragmatic Play is the fourth installment in their John Hunter series, and it has all the makings yet another winning game. It is a highly volatile slot that can award you up to 5,500x your bet. Players with a bigger bank balance that enjoy high-risk slots will love this game as there is a good chance of hitting a massive win when you do hit the jackpot. However, the more casual player will perhaps want to look elsewhere for something maybe a little less risky.

While the visuals are an improvement over the original, you would expect that it would be much more so after there has been more than a decade of technological advancements. This slot has the classic setup featuring 5-reels and 3-rows with 10 paylines and has an RTP of 96.50% which is decent enough. And If you enjoyed playing the original, then you should enjoy playing this version as well, because the formula for winning is much the same as with the earlier versions of the game.

The secret to winning big with this game is to activate the Free Spins round as often as you can by way of scatters, to achieve this you need to land 3 or more of these during one spin. You will then be awarded 10 free spins as well as one expanding special symbol that is selected at random. What is meant by expanding the symbol is that the awarded symbol will expand across over the reels and payout in the same way as landing a scatter does.

John Hunter and the Book of Tut is very close if not an almost replica of the original Book of Ra from Novamatic. However, It still does deliver on good old fashioned high-risk gaming even though it does so without the extra frills and fancy features. All in all, it's quite a fun game to play.

One of the latest releases of Pragmatic Play is titled ‘John Hunter And The Book Of Tut‘. A video slot with a classic setup of 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 Paylines. A medium variance slot, due to the set RTP of 96.5% and max win at 5.500x your bet. This is the 4th John Hunter slot in the series so far. John Hunter in this episode returns to the desert to seek for another Book with one perception in mind…the Gold.

The visuals and artwork standing on decent levels, except sounds. The highest paying symbol is John Hunter, which pays 500x for 5 Of a Kind. Landing 3 or more scatter symbols during one spin will trigger the ‘Free Spins’ feature. This will award 10 Free spins and one randomly selected special expanding symbol, while re trigger, can apply.

Overall, this game has the basic potential on offer but shows nothing revolutionary.
