John Hunter Tomb of the Scarab Queen

John Hunter Tomb of the Scarab Queen is a 5-reel, 25 payline Egyptian-themed slot developed by Pragmatic Play that sees players aim to land lucrative money symbols, which under the right circumstances can be added together and paid out to the player alongside general payline wins.

Design

This game is fairly unspectacular in terms of design, don't get us wrong, it looks good and well polished in places (the symbols in particular), but there's nothing here that makes us really sit back and say wow! The reels are adorned with gold trim, whilst behind them is a generic desert scene.

Low paying symbols make up your standard royal suit J, Q, K, A and high paying symbols are a bag, a pistol in a holster, Anubis and John Hunter himself. Special symbols include a pyramid for the scatter and the Scarab Queen as the wild. 

All of the game's money symbols are elaborately designed scarabs. The golden scarab is collect, the blue scarab is extra collect, the purple scarab is multiplier collect, the red scarab is expanding collect and the green scarab is respin collect.

Gameplay

Unsurprisingly, the layout for John Hunter Tomb of the Scarab Queen mimics that of any Pragmatic Play slot. On the left-hand side of the game screen players will find an information button and a hamburger menu which is where players can find the paytable, bonus feature details and access the game settings, 

On the right-hand side of the game screen players can change their stake (to anywhere between 0.25 and 22.50), set up to 100 automated spins by clicking the Autoplay button, or just spin the reels. 

Win Potential

This medium volatility slot absolutely hits the spot for us when it comes to winning potential. Not only does John Hunter Tomb of the Scarab Queen have a pretty solid RTP of 96.50%, but it can also see punters win a maximum of 10,500x their stake which is pretty impressive if you ask us.

Our Verdict

There's absolutely no reason whatsoever why you shouldn't be playing this slot. The inclusion of money symbols and five unique collect symbols really makes this game stand out from the crowd. If you can look past the fact that this is yet another generic Egyptian themed game then you'll find yourself having a very good time playing this slot.
