Up to €500 bonus on your first two deposits! 500€ WELCOME BONUS

They say you can never read too many books, but when it comes to book-style mechanic slots, if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all. It’s a pity that in 2020 providers are still offering book-style mechanic slots that are identical to Novamatic’s Book of Ra that will forever be the number 1. I think I will just copy-paste from another review, seeing that is the modus operandi these days. Just kidding, 2020 is rough as it is, so I’m holding onto my job for dear life.


John Hunter and the Book of Tut is a 5×3 reel, 10 payline video slot powered by Pragmatic Play software. Symbols include Royal Card Suits (9-10), Scarabs, Bastet Statues, King Tut, and the John Hunter Character Symbol. The only Special Symbol is the Book Wild and Scatter that triggers the Bonus Spins Feature More detail will be given in the Features section.

Controls are located at the bottom of the reels. Starting from the left, you will find a System Settings icon (3 horizontal lines), below that a Mute button, and next to that, an Information icon with the paytable. On the bottom right is your Spin button with Autoplay below it and Bet increase and decrease buttons.


The features in John Hunter and the Book of Tut include the Book Wild and Scatter that triggers the Bonus Spins Feature.

As a Wild, the Book Wild Scatter substitutes for all symbols in forming potential winning combinations.

As a Scatter, land 3 or more Book Wild Scatters to trigger the Bonus Spins Feature, awarding 10 Bonus Spins. You will then receive a randomly selected symbol as the expanding symbol during the feature. It is possible to retrigger the feature indefinitely.

Unique Features

Unfortunately, there are no unique features to this slot.


John Hunter and the Book of Tut is expected, overdone, and absolutely nothing we haven’t seen before. If you have never played a book-style mechanic slot, then you will thoroughly enjoy it. The design, animation, and graphics are average. The volatility is high and the RTP is at 96.5%.

Max Win

The max coin win is 5500x your stake.


In a word, meh! We expect more from Pragmatic Play than this glaring copy of Novamatic’s Book of Ra. However, in terms of gaming, you can land decent wins, that book-style mechanic slots have proven repeatedly, that is, if you have the patience and the cash to get you to those big wins. Can someone please give me a book that I haven’t read before. Thanks.
