Betting Options and Bonus Features
Josh Hunter and The Book of Tut is themed after the great Egyptian civilization and their Pharaoh - King Tut. Set against a background of a vast desert filled with pyramids and the sapphire-blue Nile, the high-paying symbols are represented by the scarab, the cat, King Tut and John Hunter, which can pay up to 500x the stake for five of a kind.
Stat-wise, John Hunter and The Book of Tut plays on a 5x3 grid with 10 paylines. The volatility is high, rated 5/5 by Pragmatic Play themselves, and the RTP is generous at 96.5%.
Wilds are symbolized by The Book of Tut and in this game they pay pretty well standing alone. When you get 3,4 or 5 on a payline, you will get 2x, 20x or 200x the bet respectively. The Book will also plays the role of any symbols to help you win combos. More importantly, Wild symbols also have the role of the Scatter.
When you land the 3,4 or 5 scatters anywhere on the grid, you will then be rewarded with 10 free spins regardless of how many scatters there are. You can also get an extra 10 free spins when you land at least 3 scatters during the bonus round.
Before the bonus round starts, a special symbol is chosen and it expands to cover the entire reel whenever you land during the free spins. As long as the chosen symbol can play a part in a winning combination, it will expand no matter if it appears on adjacent reels or not.
In many ways this is standard “Book of” type of slot but the chance to retrigger free spins, without any limits to the number of possible re-spins, is what makes it stand out. It is, without a doubt, the biggest perk of this release. I love it! The feature like this increases player’s chance of ending up with some breathtaking wins. And when you add a special expanding symbol to the mix, it’s clear why The Book of Tut is considered one of the Pragmatic Play’s gems in the iGaming community.
