ABOUT JOHN HUNTER AND THE AZTEC TREASURE SLOT
John Hunter (a Rich Wilde / Indiana Jones type figure) is a well-known Pragmatic Play cool hero. In 2018, we saw him searching for riches in Da Vinci Treasures. Now he’s back in an Aztec-themed slot with an expanding reels game type, which is this year’s major craze in slots. Instead of joining Big Time Gaming’s all-conquering Megaways™ initiative, Pragmatic Play has opted to construct their own. Though not nearly as big as a Bonanza game, Aztec Treasure’s reels may nevertheless create up to 7,776 possibilities to win when all six rows are displayed on all five lines.
Aside from the expanding reels, this is a simple slot with little frills. It’s all about getting free spins and multiplying your wins. It also has a considerable volatility. So be prepared to pay some cash to tame this one.
Symbols and Pay Tables
Aztec Treasure is a visually appealing slot that has Aztec and Indiana Jones-style artwork. The reels are placed against a gold-infused landscape of crumbling, overgrown stone stairs and strange sculptures. The low value symbols represent the cards Jack through Ace. the snake, the panther, the bird and the main figure himself are higher value symbols. Hunter pays 4x for five on a payline.
Watch out for the mask, which is the wild symbol and replaces all others save the scatter.
John Hunter’s Aztec Treasure
Aztec Treasure is all about free spins with multipliers. Three or more bonus scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger them. To spice things up, a bonus wheel spins after each scatter to determine how many you earn. It works like this:
- 5, 10, 15, 20, or 25 free spins
- 15/20/25 free spins for 4 scatters
- 5, 10, 15 or 20 free spins
Every spin adds a random multiplier to your wins. In this case, the multiplier is 2. The multiplier value will show above the top reel set. Any further bonus scatters landing during the free spins phase will provide extra free spins with the same multiplier.
With a 10x multiplier, the greatest payout in Aztec Treasure might be 9,000x.
Aztec Treasure is a basic slot with expanding reels to provide some flavour. To be honest, it doesn’t contribute much to the gameplay because this game is all about free spins and big multiplier re-triggers. This is for the high volatility fans that enjoy huge victories in a low frills setting.
