The John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot from Pragmatic Play gives you 7×7 reels, cluster pays, tumbling reels, and free spins that give you the chance to catch big treasure chest wins.
John Hunter has gone to all parts of the world, from stealing riches in the Book of Tut slot, to the jungles of South American in the John Hunter and the Mayan Gods review. And these are all excellent 4-star slots.
This John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot had a lot of work to do, especially as the top win here is much the same as the rest of it’s siblings: a decent 5,000x your bet.
What features will you find in Bermuda that will make it worth your while switching from some of the others to this huge 7×7grid slot with cluster pays and cascading reels? Well… not quite as much as you think.
Set against a background of a waterfall, this is certainly beautiful, with bright bold colourful symbols that are easy to spot for wins. It’s a shame then that because it’s such a big slot, the paytable feels a little low unless you get 10 symbols wins upwards. Not an easy feat.
The good news is that the paytable is secondary to the jewel in the crown of this game: the treasure chest. These symbols show up and stay on screen on every tumble and exploding symbol, hopefully catching more as you come down.
Some of these treasure chests will have money values, some will collect all the money values, some will drop extra treasures chests on screen. None of these matter unless the collect treasure chest also lands and you then win all the treasure on the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot reels.
This doesn’t happen quite as often as you might think.
Look, we get this isn’t quite on par with the rest, but there are some redeeming features in this John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches mobile slot.
For one, the wild symbols may randomly get cursed on screen, giving you a 2x multiplier on those wilds and/or adding wilds to random positions.
For two, hit 3 or more scatters and you’ll trigger 12 free spins – here instead of needing that collect treasure chest, the game will automatically collect every chest that shows up.
At the end of the John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot bonus, you get to play a mini-game to win that cash amount. You have 1 in 3 chances of catching the win, making you (yet again) work a little harder than you want for those truly great wins.
There are better casino slots at Pragmatic Play casinos, but few that give you big features and big reels. If you like unusual games with lots of action, this John Hunter online slot may tick enough boxes to keep you entertained for a couple of hours.

Wild: The Golden Mask is the wild symbol and can replace any other symbols to create a win.
Cluster Pays and Tumbles: Any 5 symbols touching horizontally or vertically will create a cluster of symbols winning. Those symbols will then explode and more will tumble down from above.
Money Collect Features: The treasure chest symbol is the scatters and there are four different types that can show up on a tumble. These are:
These are collected at the end of the tumble.
Cursed Wild: A wild can randomly become cursed, add extra wilds on the screen, each with a 2x multiplier applied on a wild win.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatters will trigger 12 free spins. You can retrigger the bonus as often as you like.
During this John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot bonus, all the Treasure chest amounts are collected in a separate pot. At the end of the bonus, you get to spin a wheel, and if you fall in the green segment (of three) you'll win the prize pot.
As far as John Hunter slots go, this isn't the very best of the bunch, but only because it's so hard to catch those treasure chests.
There are still big wins of 5,000x your bet and a high RTP 96.40%, making this very playable and fun, especially if you love cluster pay grid slots.
But we lost a little bit of steam halfway through playing because the scatter and wilds never quite land to make us feel like we could get those huge wins.
John Hunter and the Quest For Bermuda Riches slot is still fun, though we would probably play on the Viking Runecraft slot instead to get easier wins.
