John Hunter and the Mayan Gods Slot Review

Are you a fan of adventure movies? Do you want to feel like Indiana Jones and go hunt long-lost relics? If your answer is yes then this is the slot for you. Put on your gear and get ready to unveil all the mysteries and treasures of the Mayan gods.

The game takes place deep inside the forest, near the ruins of a destroyed Mayan village. At the sides of the screen, you can clearly make out some stone statues while you can find plants and trees scattered throughout the whole interface. The reels are encased in a golden border featuring Mayan symbols as it sits on top of a series of stone bricks. The logo of the game is seen at the top of the screen.

As for the mechanics, the game works just like most others as the reels start spinning altogether and come to stop one at a time in consecutive fashion.

The mysterious atmosphere John Hunter and the Mayan Gods emits is enough to get your blood pumping. Even though the game doesn’t have many features, as you’ll find later on, the ones it does offer are more than simply rewarding. If you find this slot enjoyable then we recommend you check out the rest of the games from the John Hunter franchise by Pragmatic Play.

How to Play John Hunter and the Mayan Gods

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 10 fixed paylines. You have access to the controls allowing you to change your bet size or enable the autoplay function by using the buttons located below the reel set. You can also use those to check out the paytable or access the in-game menu for further gameplay customization.

Coming to the bet sizes, you can stake as little as $0.10 or as much as $100 per spin. A higher bet limit might be offered but this is based on the casino you play at. John Hunter and the Mayan Gods is a highly volatile slot with an RTP of 96.46% and maximum exposure of 2,500x.

John Hunter and the Mayan Gods features 4 low paying and 6 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of card values J-A while the latter are represented by a chalice, a stone knife, a ring, an animal statue, a Mayan, and John Hunter.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The wild is the golden Mayan mask symbol. It appears in the 3 middle reels and substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter. If it can form a winning combination it expands to fill the entire reel.
  • Scatter – Represented by the Mayan temple, 3 of these triggers the free spins feature. 4 or 5 of these awards 20x and 50x the total bet accordingly.

Game Rules

John Hunter and the Mayan Gods Features

As mentioned in the introduction, the game doesn’t offer many features. In fact, it only offers free spins as its main bonus mode. However, as you’re about to find out, these aren’t as standard as you’d expect.

Free Spins

Getting 3 scatter symbols will activate the feature awarding 12 free spins. The feature starts at level 1. Every time a wild symbol hits, the level increases by 1, and an additional free spin is added. Two or three wilds increase the level by the same number (2 or 3) and add 3 or 5 extra free spins accordingly.

Each time you level up, the lower value symbols will transform into the immediate higher value symbol. In detail:

  • Level 2 – The chalice transforms into a stone knife
  • Level 3 – The stone knife transforms into a ring
  • Level 4 – The ring transforms into the animal statue
  • Level 5 – The animal statue transforms into the Mayan
  • Level 6 – The Mayan transforms into John Hunter

Hitting 3 or more scatter symbols during the free spins retriggers the feature awarding 12 additional free spins. There is no limit to the number of potential retriggers.
