Adventure-themed slots are all the rage right now, particular ones which feature explorers of ancient ruins. Play ‘n Go’s Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead as well as Novomatic’s Book of Ra (and its subsequent Deluxe edition) currently set the benchmark high for these types of games.
Pragmatic Play fancies getting a slice of this pie for themselves, though. This week, the casino software developer launched John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen slot. That meaty mouthful is not a big-branded slot such as Microgaming’s Lara Croft: Temple of Tombs, but it may just have enough about it to tackle the other rivals in the genre.
Pragmatic Play Takes On the Adventure Genre
Pragmatic Play’s new John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen slot is a 5-reel, 25-line effort. Those paylines are fixed, so a stake is going to cost players at least 0.25 per spin. Maximum stakes can rise to 125.00 a turn at most. Prizes in the game are adventurous, at over ten thousand times a bet. The slot is also a medium variance effort, with an RTP rate of 96.5%.
Goodies Galore Can Be Yours
One of the first features that players will come across with the John Hunter and Tomb of the Scarab Queen slot is the Money Collect mode. Scarab icons appearing on the first fourth reels can carry cash prizes. These can be accumulated and will pay out if Scarab Collect symbols appear on the fifth reel.
The slot also comes with a wide range of additional goodies for players. Expanding symbols, re-spin goodies, as well as multipliers can all come into play during the game. The slot also has a free spin bonus round which features multipliers worth up to 25x the rate of pay.
John Hunter Goes Head to Head with Rich Wilde
The John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen slot stands out from the Rich Wilde series and Novomatic’s Book of Ra slots on account of its features. While Play ‘n Go’s Rich Wilde is essentially a rip-off of Book of Ra, Pragmatic Play’s John Hunter slot is wholly original. This could give it the edge as these three slots go head to head against one another.
Players can expect to find the John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen at all top casinos offering Pragmatic Play slots this month.
