Play John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin
Enjoy the view of the magnificent river Nile in the background as you spin the reels. See the pyramids and the ruins of a once glorious temple. The reels are set between two pillars, while the blue background is decorated with hieroglyphs. Apart from John Hunter and Tut, on the reels, you will find Bastet, Scarab, and simple playing cards. The Book of Tut is both the Wild that substitutes for all regular icons and the Scatter that triggers free spins.
How to Play
As for the rules of the game, the sequel is pretty much the same as the original. The Pragmatic Play title benefits from 5 reels, 3 rows, and 10 paylines. The slot pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. To win a payout, you need to land at least three matching icons on an active payline.
Set the number of coins per line (1-10), as well as the coin value ($0.01-$1) before you start spinning the reels. Betting starts at $0.10, and you cannot wager more than $100 per spin.
Strategy & Tips
On random spins, one of the regular icons can be selected as a Mystery Symbol. Once the reels stop and potential payouts are made, the Mystery Symbol may expand to cover entire reels. For this to happen, you need at least three Mystery Symbols present on the reels. The reels covered in Mystery Symbols are locked in their positions, while other reels respin. If a new Mystery Symbol lands, the process is repeated.
Land at least three Wilds/Scatters on the reels at the same time to trigger the Free Spins feature. Players get 10 free spins. Before the feature starts, you pick one of the regular icons to be the Mystery Symbol during freebies. The process of expanding is the same as in respins. At least three icons anywhere on the reels will activate the expansion.
To retrigger the feature, just land 3+ extra Scatters during the feature. If you do not want to wait for the feature to be triggered regularly, there is the option to buy the feature for 100x the bet.
You don’t have to go all the way to Egypt to enjoy the 2022 release. You can play the game from the comfort of your home, or on the go. John Hunter and the Book of tut Respin is playable across all devices.
