iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play has announced its latest slot, John Hunter and the Book of Tut Megaways, which promises “another thrilling adventure" in one of the company's top-performing slot franchises, John Hunter.
The latest slot is a direct follow-up to the storyline of the original Egyptian excursion, where players are transported through the game's rich design to the lush plains of Ancient Egypt, with familiar symbols including a sphinx, a pharaoh, and the famed explorer himself.
The game is played across an expanded game area with six ever-changing reels, and players must land adjacent symbol combinations from left to right. For the first time in the John Hunter series, the popular Megaways mechanic provides up to 117,649 different ways to win.
Symbols are selected at random as part of the special expanding symbol feature, which can occur randomly during any spin in the base game. These symbols expand to cover all positions on their respective reels, paying from any position to create extra winning chances.
Players can trigger the free spins round by landing three or more Scatters on any spin, with 10 free games to start with. A special expanding symbol is guaranteed during this round, which is in play for all free spins during the bonus.
The most recent title is a continuation of one of Pragmatic Play's popular series, with John Hunter and the Book of Tut Megaways being the ninth title in the saga. The game follows recent releases which also feature characters that have become player favorites, including the fisherman in Big Bass Hold & Spinner Megaways and Zeus of Zeus vs. Hades — Gods of War.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, said: "The release of our ninth title in the John Hunter franchise closely follows the milestone launch of our 10th Big Bass game, a true testament to the popularity of these hit slots, underpinned by our drive to continue delivering player favorite experiences time and time again.”
She added: "This latest John Hunter adventure provides new thrills in the form of offering players up to 117,649 ways to win, with special expanding symbols for extra chances to land prizes in the base game and free spins. It's another iconic return by our famed explorer, and it's one that will resonate with fans of the series looking for great gameplay topped up by the power of Megaways."
