After taking players to players to mystical Ancient Greece with the Da Vinci’s Treasures pokie, Pragmatic Play takes New Zealand players to Central America’s jungles with its new addition, John Hunter and the Mayan Gods. This pokie is the fifth addition to the leading content provider’s highly successful John Hunter series. The hero takes you on an adventure to the Mayan jungle, where he’ll use his hunting skills to find you some treasures. The pokie features three reels, five rows, and ten winning ways with the inclusion of fearsome gods who are ready to aid you on your search for Temple Scatter symbols on the reels. Bet limits cater to all pocket sizes as you can take a spin with as little as NZ$0.01, and the high rollers can place up to NZ$100. John Hunter introduces you to the Mayan priest and guides you up a pyramid to unlock free games while giving you a chance to uncover treasures worth up to 2,500x your stake.
Special features and symbols
John Hunter and the Mayan Gods pokie is themed around Aztec and Mayans, and you can notice Pragmatic Play’s effort to style the symbols to match the theme. Low-value symbols are depicted by playing card symbols, which are decorated fittingly to the theme. The game takes some inspiration from Indiana Jones, and you can tell from the rugged explorer, John Hunter, who carries a designer stubble and a Fedora hat. You’ll also come across a gold chalice, a knife, a ring, and the Quetzalcoatl, all of which represent high paying symbols. The Mayan Priest and John Hunter himself are the symbols to watch out for on this pokie since they pay out the most when you match three or more from the left to right reels.
The Mayan gold mask acts as the wild, which activates the expanding wilds feature and upgrades symbols to give you a better chance at landing high-value combinations. The Mayan Temple symbol depicts the scatter symbol. If you land 3, 4, or 5 of these symbols, you trigger the free spins feature, also earning a payout of 2x, 20x, or 50x your stake, respectively.
