John Hunter and the Mayan Gods slot will have you chasing expanded wilds and enter the Temple for richer spins.
Let’s be honest, this John Hunter and the Mayan Gods online slot theme isn’t particularly unique. There’s a whole load of different Aztec games that are similar and look just as good: from the Monkey’s Gold Xpays slot to the Aztec Spins mobile slot.
But that doesn’t take away from the fact that you have 5 reels and 3 rows of beautiful symbols over 10 paylines. You have 6 high paying symbols, ranging from cups to knives, to rings, dragons, Emperors and John Hunter the adventurer himself.
Then you have Ace to J as the low paying symbols. It’s a lot of symbols for just 10 paylines, we will grant you, but you have a secret weapon – the golden mask wild.
The golden mask is the wild symbol and shows up only on the top three reels. If it’s possible to make a win, it will expand to cover the whole reel each and every time, not unlike the Thunderkick 1429 Uncharted Seas slot.
Honestly, it’s where you’ll get most of your wins in the base game, and even then only using the high paying symbols and by getting more than one expanded wild on the screen.
The good news is that with no multipliers anywhere, all the big wins is purely thanks to the paytable and that John Hunter symbol.
3 scatters will trigger 12 free spins. But what makes it really interesting is that every time a wild shows up, not only will you get extra free spins, but the lowest of the high paid symbols (the cup) will now be next highest (the dagger).
The more wilds you catch, the more high paying symbols you’ll upgrade to the next on the paytable. Eventually, what you want, is to turn all high paying symbols into John Hunter himself.
The more high paying symbols, the richer the reels, the bigger the wins. In other words, John Hunter and the Mayan Gods slot machine asks you to pray a little harder on each free spin in order to get more adventurers and more riches.
And if the wins here aren’t quite enough to keep you here, there’s always the John Hunter and the Book of Tut slot.

Expanded Wilds: The golden mask is the wild symbol and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. If a win can be made it will expand to cover the whole reel.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatters trigger 12 free spins at level 1. When 1 wild symbol hits it adds more free spins and the level increases by 1. When 2 wild symbols hit, they add 3 more free spins and the level increases by 2. When 3 wild symbols hit, you get +5 free spins and the level increases by 3.
With enough wilds, you may end up with just one high paying symbol on all spins.
With a great theme and expanded wilds, we had lots of fun playing on this John Hunter and the Mayan Gods slot on mobile. It's easy to understand, and it has a great paytable and only 10 paylines.
The free spins can be a little frustrating at times, especially as getting richer reels doesn't always mean more wins, but this is a volatile slot after all.
A bigger win would have been appreciated, but that 500x your bet feels earned if you can catch it. If you like this real money slot, you'll love John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure slot as a follow-up.
