It’s not often that games providers release a series of slots where you can enjoy playing with the same characters, but that’s precisely what Pragmatic Play have done here. John Hunter is a character that regular players would have met before, and now he’s back in John Hunter and the Mayan Gods. Compared to the previous slots, this latest instalment is relatively simple but will you be able to find the ancient pots of gold?
In Mayan Gods, John Hunter is adventuring through Central America, which isn’t that far from the last episode, John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure. However, this is not a man who sticks to one single part of the world as one of the other previous titles saw him exploring Egypt in John Hunter and the Book of Tut. You can find other Pragmatic Play slots online at PartyCasino, a great way to try out all the different episodes in the series.
But back to the latest game, and in Mayan Gods, you’ll be playing on a standard set of five reels with ten paylines. The min bet is set at 0.10 and goes up to 100.00, a pretty wide range to keep all players happy. If you’re just in it for the win, you might be interested in the autoplay which permits you to take a step back for up to 1000 spins. The RTP is an excellent 96.51%, setting it above the standard bar, and the volatility is high. This means you could have to wait a while for prizes to start rolling in so be prepared to exercise some patience.
The Mayan theme is a popular one with slots developers, and you may have seen many before which tackle Central America and ancient civilisations. Mayan Gods manages to give a fresh look to the idea, with a design which is both beautiful and inviting. The reels are set amidst an ancient temple nestled in the heart of the jungle and filled with Mayan symbols.
The low-value symbols are represented by the usual playing cards, adorned with runes and cryptic markings. You could win up to x10 for matching five low-value symbols along an active payline. The high-value symbols are more graphic with cups, rings, knives and the Mayan deity Quetzalcoatl along those that you might see. Of course, John Hunter himself appears among the high-value symbols; you couldn’t expect the game to be named after him without sight of the great man! For these premium symbols, expect to scoop x20-x50 for lining up all five.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The wild on the reels is the Mayan mask, and this substitutes for all the basic symbols, both low and high value. This makes it easier to create winning matches. However, it has an extra function in this slot, and that’s to transform into Expanding Wilds if you make a win. You could have up to three expanding wild reels per spin, giving you great potential for higher prizes.
There is also a scatter on the reels, and if you land three or more, you’ll trigger the free spins round. You’ll receive 12 free spins at the start and be entered into level one. You can progress through the levels by landing wilds during your free spins. This gives you more free spins and as you progress through the levels, also alters the symbols. Low-value symbols are transformed into higher value symbols, a change that stays on the board until your free spins have finished. And this could take a while; you can retrigger your free spins by landing more scatters and there’s no upper limit.
