Pragmatic Play Takes Gamers on a Wild Adventure in the Latest John Hunter Video Slot

May 11, 2021

Prominent iGaming software developer Pragmatic Play just announced its latest video slot titled John Hunter and the Mayan Gods, barely a few weeks after transporting players to Ancient Greece. The fifth instalment to the John Hunter series teleports players to the jungles of Central America.

Players find their way through the 3-reel 5-row grid with 10 paylines as an intrepid explorer searches for the Temple scatter. Upon landing five standard symbols, players can increase their chances of winning by 10x. While the high-paying symbols include a ring, dagger, and goblet, landing five premium symbols amplifies the stake between 20 and 50x. The three scatter symbols activate the extra spins round while the maximum payout is 2,500x the total bet.

The Official Word

In an official press release, Pragmatic Play’s Chief Business Development Officer Yossi Barzely said, “Our famed hero returns in John Hunter and the Mayan Gods as the players explore ancient temples and progressive free spins”.

“Working on this exciting iGaming series has been fun, and we feel confident that our endeavour will be greeted by a warm welcome” Barzely continued. Mayan Gods is the latest addition to Pragmatic Play’s exciting portfolio, and the list also includes Tomb of the Scarab Queen, DaVinci’s Treasure, Aztec Treasure, and Book of Tut to name a few.

Bonus Features

John Hunter and the Mayan Gods pack a whole bunch of quirks and features including free spins and expanding Wilds. The former is triggered by landing between three and five Mayan temples scatter symbols randomly on the reels. The payouts are 2x, 5x, and 20x depending on the winning combination.

The list includes:

  1. One wild symbol trigger one free spin and a +1 level increase
  2. Two wild symbols trigger three free spins and a +2 level increase
  3. Three wild symbols trigger five free spins and a +3 level increase

The higher value picture symbols transform into the next high-level symbol, and the list of winnings include:

  1. Level 2 – All goblet symbols are transformed into dragger by the end of his round.
  2. Level 3 – All dagger symbols transform into the ring by the end of this round.
  3. Level 4 – All the symbols on the screen split into three parts.
  4. Level 5 – All ring symbols are transformed into Quetzalcoatl dragon symbols by the end of this round.
  5. Level 6 – All Mayan Chief symbols transform into John Hunter icons by the end of this round.

John Hunter and the Mayan Gods boast an RTP of 96.51% during the base game, and the maximum win is 500x the current stake. This increases to 2,500x the betting amount when paired with progressive free spins. The betting range is between 10c to €100 per spin while the game features Auto Spin, Turbo, and Quick Spin modes.

While Mayan Gods isn’t a novelty by any degree, Pragmatic Play manages to keep the thrill alive using the bonuses. Both amateur and veteran gamblers are in for a treat.
