John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure Slot Review – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play is known for frequent slot releases, compared to one dedicated slot release a month like various other studios. This can mean slot releases are not high quality or not up to standards when the release date comes up. Today we go back to 2019, to learn about one of the many infamous John Hunter game instalments. Titled ‘John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure‘ and originally released 25th July 2019.
Like stated in the slot title, this slot is based around Aztecs. This is a common theme within the provider’s releases. This release has theme-related graphics, the artwork has good detail especially in the premium symbols. The background is barely visible due to the size of the reels. Overall Pragmatic never fail with visuals, but they always seem to have the same art style.
John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure has a setup of 5 reels by 2-6 rows, this includes 7776 set pay lines. This slot is high variance due to the max win capped at 9,000x and set RTP of 96.5%. You can bet from £0.20-£100.
John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure Pay Table & Symbols

There are also 6 premium symbols, these are represented by torches, hat/lasso, parrot, snake, panther, and John. There is also a wild symbol and scatter. Wilds substitute for all symbols except scatters and only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. The highest paying symbol is the John Hunter premium, which pays 5x for 5 across a pay line.
John Hunter And The Aztec Treasure Features
Central to this game is the free spins feature, this is activated when you hit 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reel set. A random number of free spins will be awarded, but this is dependent on how many scatters landed for the initial trigger:
- 3 Scatters = 5,10,15,20 or 25 Free Spins Can Be Awarded
- 4 Scatters = 10,12,20 or 25 Free Spins Can Be Awarded
- 5 Scatters = 15,20 or 25 Free Spins Can Be Awarded
During these free spins, a multiplier value is randomly awarded from these values 2x,3x,5x,7x or 10x. You can also retrigger by landing 2+ scatter symbols, however, the number of additional spins is determined from the number of scatters and the value is chosen at random.
- 2 Scatters = 3,4,5,10 or 15 Additional Free Spins
- 3 Scatters = 4,5,10 or 15 Additional Free Spins
- 4 Scatters = 5,10 or 15 Additional Free Spins
- 5 Scatters = 10 or 15 Additional Free Spins
Overall, this slot is very similar to the original release, especially within the free spins feature. However, this sequel does show some changes which do benefit this release. The max win of 9,000x is surprising and great for players who love high variance slots. Be sure to try the game out for yourself if you haven’t already.
