Hitting 3 or more book symbols during the free spins round will award players with 10 more free spins with the same expanding symbol still in play. There's no limit to how many times the free spins feature can re-trigger.

John Hunter and the Book of Tut

John Hunter and the Book of Tut is a 5-reel, 10 payline slot developed by Pragmatic Play. The main pulling power of this good looking Egyptian slot is its free spins round that sees players receive 10 free spins with a random expanding symbol in play. 

But that's not all! Book of Tut can also see players re-trigger the free spins round indefinitely, which is what makes it such a mouthwateringly lucrative game. 


We've made no secret of our disdain for the sheer number of Egyptian-themed slots that flood online casinos in this day and age, but we have to say, John Hunter and the Book of Tut is a genuinely good looking slot.

The reels are set up upon two golden pillars in front of a desert oasis that has a fast-flowing river cutting through the middle of it. Behind the river are lush palm trees and imposing pyramids and other ancient structures.

Low paying symbols on the reels are highly stylised versions of your standard 10, J, Q, K, A and the high paying symbols include a colourful scarab, a statue of a cat, the sarcophagus of an Egyptian King and the man himself, John Hunter. The special symbol is a book that acts as both a scatter symbol and a wild symbol.

Unfortunately, Pragmatic Play has opted for classic slot sounds that you might hear from a physical slot machine in Las Vegas, We think this cheapens the overall gameplay experience considering this is a heavily themed game. If you're going to go all out with the design and theming then we think you should go all out with the sound as well.


John Hunter and the Book of Tut follows the same design conventions as most Pragmatic Play slots when it comes to actually playing the slot. Rather than stick a bulky action bar at the bottom of the reels the design team have placed a single spin button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen with a + and - either side.

Players can press this button once to spin the reels, click the + and - to change their stake (between 0.20 and 45) and click the autoplay tab at the bottom of the button to set up to 100 automated spins.

Win Potential

This slot has a slightly above average RTP of 96.50% and can pay out a maximum 5,500x the player's initial stake, which is fairly generous (however there are slots released in 2020 that have a much better winning potential). 

It's well worth noting that Book of Tut is a highly volatile slot, so we genuinely wouldn't recommend going into this game without a big enough bankroll to sustain your gameplay, as there's all the chance your money could be swallowed up quite quickly. 

Our Verdict

If we're being completely honest, John Hunter and the Book of Tut is a bit of a lightweight slot. It looks the part, but it doesn't really offer too much outside of the free spins round. If you can trigger that then yes, this slot is worth playing, but if not then this is probably just another run of the mill 'Book of' re-hash you should avoid.
