John Hunter and his second Pragmatic Play adventure doesn’t make the best first impression. I felt the graphics are fairly weak, causing the slot to appear sort of unfinished and slightly dated. This isn’t the first time I’ve felt dissatisfied by the appearance of Pragmatic Play slots, but it’s becoming even more obvious compared with the spectacular graphics churned out by competitors.
This slot follows our hero, John Hunter, as he trawls through ancient Aztec artifacts in search of some treasure or other. He’s equipped with the usual gear (whips, hats, fetching outfit) and up against the usual threats of snakes and bewitched ruins. Quite frankly I’ve played so many slots following this theme that I would be completely incapable of telling one from the other.
Across the reels is John Hunter himself, sporting a stetson and a goatee. He’s joined by a snarling panther, a rattlesnake, a toucan, a hat and whip, and a flaming torch. These symbols are accompanied by quite blank looking A, K,Q, J royals. The wild is a golden tribal mask that substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus symbol. This bonus symbol is responsible for triggering the free spins feature. The entire package doesn’t inspire much excitement, but perhaps the game’s features will make up for that.
