Game developer Pragmatic Play has released a new instalment in the John Hunter video slot franchise.
The brand new slot, titled John Hunter And The Quest For Bermuda Riches, sees adventurer John Hunter travel to the mysterious Bermuda in search of treasure and secrets. The game uses a 7×7 layout with an RTP of 95.39%, and it has high variance, which means players are more likely to make infrequent large wins over frequent small ones.
Rather than using traditional paylines, however, the slot uses a Cluster Pays mechanic where players must make a cluster of five or more matching symbols to create a win, offering larger win potential.
The slot requires a bet of between £0.20 and £50, with a chance of winning up to £7,5500x times the bet wagered. Symbols available in the slot include bracelets, goblets, torches, and the traditional spade, heart, clover, and diamond playing card suits.
The John Hunter And The Quest For Bermuda Riches come with several special features too. For example, the Wild symbol appears on all reels and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter, Money, and Collect symbols. Wild symbols can appear randomly as Cursed Wilds with multipliers of up to 2x.
Meanwhile, landing three or more Scatter symbols triggers the game’s free spins mode with 12 free spins. During the mode, landing three more scatter symbols triggers an additional five spins, with no limits as to how many times this can be triggered.
The game’s special features don’t end there as the slot also has a Tumble Feature that is triggered after every spin. When this happens, any winning combination is paid and all winning symbols disappear from the reels with new symbols falling in their place. The new symbols can either create no new win requiring a fresh spin or form a new winning cluster and continue the Tumble Feature.
There’s also a Money Collect feature where a money symbol of an open chest appears on all reels. On each spin, the money symbol takes a random value from a predefined set, and if one or more money symbols lands on the reels with one or more collect symbols, one of four features is triggered.
The four features include Collect, where the values of all on-screen money symbols are combined and paid; Extra Credit Collect, where the value of all extra credit collect symbols are added to all money symbols and paid; Multiplier Collect, where the value of all money symbols are multiplied by a value; and Extra Drop Collect, where more money symbols are added to the screen.
Yossi Barzely, the Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, said in a statement: “The John Hunter series has become a staple of our portfolio, and we’re thrilled to inject new life into it with the launch of John Hunter and The Quest For Bermuda Riches.
“We’re always looking for new ways to entertain our customers with exciting content and the John Hunter series presents us with the perfect opportunity to continue an epic narrative with equally thrilling mechanics.”
The brand new slot is the latest in the John Hunter franchise and follows John Hunter And The Mayan Gods, John Hunter And The Book Of Tut, John Hunter And The Tomb Of The Scarab Queen, John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure, and John Hunter And Da Vinci’s Treasure.
Pragmatic Play’s new slot also follows the release of other Pragmatic Play titles, such as Star Pirates Code, Day Of Dead, Cash Bonanza, Mystic Chief, Treasure Wild, Starlight Princess, and numerous other titles too.
