This John Hunter and The Book of Tut mobile slot tries to do what so many others have done before, and pretty much hit the goal post.
Look we are not going to deny: this John Hunter and The Book of Tut slot is a copy of the Book of Ra Deluxe Game. Just like the Book of Oz, the Book of Seth, and the Book of Dead.
See where we are going with this? There is a lot of games of this type that you could choose to play, and the concepts are all much the same.
This is a 10 payline slot, with a wild that is also a scatter, and you trigger 10 free spins where one symbol will be chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay. The top win is 5,000x your bet in a single spin.
Very very little. Even the design, we would argue, doesn’t do much to either make the Ancient Egyptian slot theme shine more than the rest, or give you anything different.
You have your classic adventurer Indiana Jones type, then a Pharaoh casket, a golden cat statue and the scarab as the high paying symbols.
Then you have Ace to 10 symbols to cover the lower half of the paytable, and finally, the Book of Tut symbols as the wild and the scatter.
The sounds are pretty generic, bringing you back to the original game, and even the animations are a little basic. But they are better than the original Book of Ra review, which is the baseline.
At the end of the day, what are your chances of getting that top win? Pretty good, in as much as the paytable is generous and you trigger the free spins often enough that that thrill is there.
We didn’t get that lucky when we wrote this John Hunter and The Book of Tut slot review, but we can see the potential for big wins.
You get the same animations as the original, where the book spins, and the same thrill as you get one symbol expands and cover whole reels, giving you the chance to get multiple 4 or 5 of a kind wins on all 10 paylines. That excitement never goes away, no matter how many versions of this game you play.
So if this is your first introduction to these machines, jump right in. Pragmatic Play give you a solid nod to these famous mechanics, a good RTP 95.6% and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin.
But if you’ve played on these before, you won’t find anything new here, maybe try a new theme like in the Rise of Merlin slot or push the envelope a little on the Book of Ra Deluxe 10 slot game.

Wild Scatter: The Book of Tut is both the wild and the scatter symbol and substitute for all symbols. You also get an automatic 200x your bet if you get 5 scatters on the screen. 3 or more will trigger the bonus.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get three or more scatter symbols and you'll trigger 10 free spins. One symbol will then be randomly chosen to act as an expanding scatter pay.
What does that mean? It means that one symbol will now expand over the reels and pay like a scatter - so it doesn't need to be on reels 1, 2 and 3 in order to get a win. You will get 3 of a kind wins on all 10 paylines, regardless of where those symbols land.
Seasoned gaming adventurers won't find anything new in this John Hunter and The Book of Tut slot on mobile, but if this is your first time across this type of game, welcome to the cult.
Once you play a couple of spins and hit those bonus rounds, you'll be hard-pressed to want to play any other type of machine.
