Pragmatic Play has released a new online slot game in their John Hunter series called John Hunter and the Quest for Bermuda Riches.
This new slot game sees John Hunter in a sort of treasure hunter type game with standard card symbols, chalices and jewel rings.
The game also features wild symbols, scatter symbols and other special symbols.
The game uses a grid of 7 by 7 symbols and a winning combination consists of 5 of the same symbols connected horizontally or vertically. Each winning combination is removed and new symbols fall on top, until no new winning combinations appear.
John Hunter and the Quest for Bermuda Riches also comes with some extra features and a free spins bonus.
Any wild symbol landing on the grid can become a cursed wild symbol.
A cursed wild symbol will either become a multiplier x2 wild symbol or will add more random wild symbols to the grid.
Money Collect Feature
The game features treasure chest symbols with random cash amounts on them.
If you get one or more collect symbols anywhere on screen, these will collect all treasure chest values and pay them.
There are different collect symbols that might appear.
- Collect – The standard symbol which will collect all values on screen
- Extra Credit Collect – This collect will have a value which is added to all other chests after which they are all collected
- Multiplier Collect – All ches values will be multiplied by the multiplier on this collect and then collect all values
- Extra Drop Collect – Before all values are collected, more random chest symbols are added to the reels
Free Spins Feature
3 or more scatter symbols will award 12 free spins.
During free spins everything is the same as normal. Treasure chests are still collected when you get one or more collect symbols. But now also all treasure chest values are collected on the top right, even when no collect symbols appear.
At the end of the free spins the total amount collected can be won after a wheel spins with 3 winning and 4 losing parts.
3 or more scatter symbols during free spins will add 5 more free spins.
This the first time John Hunter uses a grid slot game.
But the gameplay itself feels a lot like John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen. Here you also have values that are collected when you get a collect symbol. And a free spins feature with a total amount available at the end.
So the only differences are really the grid. And of course the fact that new symbols fall on top after a winning combination is removed. Which can create several wins during the same bought spin.
But since all John Hunter slot games are pretty popular, I think this one will also become a popular title.
For me personally, I like the game, but it does feel a bit too much like its predecessor.
