ABOUT JOHN HUNTER AND THE BOOK OF TUT SLOT
For slot enthusiasts, Novomatic’s Book of Ra has justifiably earned a spot among the finest high volatility games available. Its simple high risk gameplay inspired numerous gaming firms to create their own Indiana Jones-style heroes hunting treasures among Ancient Egyptian reel settings filled with scarab bugs and mysterious symbols. Even BTG has a Book of Gods game. Pragmatic Play’s own Book of Series features the dashing figure John Hunter who has traversed the Aztec and Da Vinci’s Treasures before arriving at the Book of Tut. This game is situated in the Egyptian deserts and features free spins with expanding symbols and an upgraded pay table.
SYMBOLS AND GRAPHICS
The 5×3 reel set of Book of Tut lies in front of a bright desert backdrop with palm trees, the Nile, and pyramids. This simple set up allows for low value symbols such as the cards 10 to A. The premium emblems are a scarab beetle, a cat, King Tut, and John Hunter himself. Our hero pays 500x for five on a payline.
Finally, the Book symbol is both a Scatter and a Wild in this game, and five of them anywhere on the reels triggers the extra round.
BOOK OF TUT SLOT RTP, VARIANCE, AND PAYOUTS
Book of Tut is, as we all know, a rather volatile game. Casual slot players should run a mile! High risk slot gamers will adore it (when it goes their way). This is a simple game with only one way to win – free spins. The RTP is 96.5 percent and the highest payout is 5,000x (albeit it doesn’t match BTG’s insane Megaways™ collection), so don’t set your stake too high or you’ll quickly lose your money. The minimum bet is C$10.
Scatters, Free Spins, and Stacks
Ok, so there is just one feature here, and that is the free spins round, which is activated by three or more Book scatters/wilds. Of course, getting 5 on the payline adds to the thrill, but the primary game here is 10 free spins.
If a winning spin is made, a book opens in front of the reels, revealing a paytable symbol that expands to full reel height. These new regulations apply to this unique symbol. Instead, three or more anywhere on the reels triggers a payment.
Three or more book symbols in the bonus round triggers additional 10 spins with no restriction.
If John Hunter is the special sign, the highest prize is 5,000x.
Book of Tut is precisely what you would think, it is almost a perfect clone of Novomatic’s original Book of Ra. This is a great game for those of high volatility games that tease before exploding. No frills, no gimmicks, just good old fashioned high risk gambling in the Egyptian dunes. Pragmatic Play does it brilliantly. Enjoy!
