John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen Slot is a 5 reel and 25 paylines video slot powered by Pragmatic Play software provider. This is the third slot in John Hunter series and it pretty much comes with the same theme where Indiana Jones-like explorer is set on a mission, but each time it’s a different one. This time, you will go to Egypt to look for ancient treasures if you decide to join John, and if you do, you can do so here on our page for fun, or at any Pragmatic Play Casino for real.

How to Play John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen Slot

Get ready because the adventure starts here and now, just make sure to choose and set your bets beforehand.

  • Hitting +/- button will result in a separate betting panel opening where you can increase and decrease Bet and Coin Value.
  • Spin sets the reels in motion once the bets have been set.
  • Autoplay will let you choose the number of automated spins that you would like to make, and whether you would like for automatic spins to stop on a win or feature, or not at all.

Slot Features

The Scarab Queen is the Wild symbol that substitutes for all the symbols in the game except for the Pyramid Scatter, the Money symbol and the Collect symbol. Wild can appear on reels 2 through 5.

Pyramid is the Scatter that can form scatter wins and trigger a feature. Scatter can land on reels 2, 3 and 4, and landing 3 or more Scatters anywhere on these three reels will trigger the Free Spins feature.

Free Spins

When you land 3 Scatters you will get awarded with 8 spins. Money symbols and Collect features will be active even during the bonus round.

All the Money symbols that hit during the round are added into a bonus pot. After all the spins end, the value of the pot will get back to the reels in form of a giant Money symbol on reels 1 through 4, and a final respin will get retriggered. If Collect is hit on reel 5, the value of the pot is paid.

Additional Scatters will trigger additional spins and there is no limit to how many spins you can win.

Money Collect

Scarab is the Money symbol that can appear on reels 1 through 4. On each spin the symbol will take a random value from a predefined set. There are 5 different Collect symbols: Collect, Extra Collect, Multiplier Collect, Expanding Collect and Respin Collect. Collect symbol lands on reels 5, and once it does, if it hits alongside the Money symbol it awards one of the features.

Collect makes sure that all values of Money symbol are added together and paid. Extra Collect takes the value from the symbol and adds it to the Money symbols currently on the screen, then adds them together and pays the value out. Multiplier Collect takes the Money values off the screen and multiplies them with the value on the Multiplier symbol before it pays out. Expanding Collect expands all the reels with Money symbol. Respin Collect will freeze all the Money symbols in place for the respin that will ensue before the wins are paid out.


John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen Slot is the third slot in line of the series, yet it is not as nearly as volatile as the first two. The RTP is set at 96.5% and the maximum win is capped at x10500 your bet. If you played the first two slots, then this one surely deserves a chance.

John Hunter and the Tomb of Scarab Queen is quite a new game release from Pragmatic Play. I haven't been a  big fan of Pragmatic Play but I do think they have a couple of good slots, so when I first tried this game at Videoslots, it really got my attention for various reasons.

When it comes to theme, this slot has the quite typical adventure, ancient Egypt theme which has been seen many times but design wise I think they've done a good job the graphics are very neat and the color scheme is eye-catching. But what really excites me about this game is the gameplay itself, there are base game features as well as free spins bonus round. The game has 5 reels and 25 paylines and the minimum bet you can place is 0.25 cents per spin.

So it's not the first time when I see cash symbols and collect symbols from a Pragmatic Play slot, but here the difference is that there are also re-spin collect, expanding collect and collect multiplier. Due to these features, I have managed to get several 50x bet wins on the base game. I especially enjoy the multiplier collect symbol which can add the multiplier to the cash symbols. In my last session I got several of those features that helped me to quickly boost my balance.

Another really interesting feature is the free spins bonus round. You can get it by catching scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 and for that, you get 10 free spins. One thing I've noticed is that the best part of the free spins is the super collect feature. For the most part, the free spins don't really pay much themselves as there's no added multiplier, so it's basically 10 free spins on a base game. But every time a cash symbol comes up, it will be added to the super feature and when the free spins are over you get a stacked super cash symbol and if "collect" symbol drops, you get the cash prize of all the cash symbols you collected during the bonus round. Usually, the amount ranges from 50x-100x so it's not very easy to land it, but in my last session, I managed to get a 100x bet win on the free spins and then I landed the collect symbol on the last spin for another prize of nearly 100x bet.

Overall I think this is a really exciting game with great winning potential and enjoyable gameplay. One thing I have to say is that while it can be a great balance booster, it is also quite volatile. If you don't get many of the collect symbols on base game, it's not easy to get a decent win on base game itself. But so far it's one of my favorites from Play'n Go and I definitely will keep playing this slot.
