John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin Review
The team at Pragmatic Play invites you to return to Ancient Egypt for an exciting new adventure with John Hunter in a freshly expanded version of the original title, Book of Tut Respin. Featuring 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines, the game has a classic “book of” reel setup, but with a couple of unexpected extras. One hint is in the title; the other surprise is how a mystery symbol is chosen during free spins. Theme-wise, nothing has changed much. The slot is still as adventurous and vivid as the previous releases making it a recognisable game. Will you join the restless hero in his pursuit of secret treasure?

John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin Bonus Features
The Book of Tut Respin might not be that different from the previous Book of Tut title visually and bonus-wise, but what the original doesn’t have is the respins feature. Active in both the base game and the free spins bonus round, it adds a new layer of excitement and presents more winning opportunities. The-ever handy bonus buy option remains included and readily available for non-UK players, but let’s take it from the top.
Wilds and Scatters
The mysterious book is, once again, a wild and scatter symbol in the Book of Tut Respin version of the game. It pays between 2x-200x your stake, substitutes for all symbols and activates the bonus round should you match 3 scatters anywhere on the reels in the base game.
Mystery Symbols and Respins
Before each base game, you’ll randomly have a symbol chosen to act as a special mysterious symbol, so watch the reels closely. Whenever 3 instances of that mystery symbol hit the reels, the respin triggers resulting in all 3 symbols expanded 3 positions high. In the Hold & Spin style, the triggering symbols will stay in place while other reels respin in search of more potential winning combinations. If more mystery symbols hit the reels, they’ll also expand and lock in place while the remaining reels respin.
Triggered with 3 book scatters, the bonus round awards 10 free spins and one mystery symbol. What’s nice is that you can pick your own special symbol instead of it being picked out for you like in the previous version. Like the base game, your mystery symbol will also expand and lock in place for a respin, extending your gameplay between free spins and giving you extra winning chances. If you can find another 3 book scatters during free spins, you’ll win another 10 free spins with the current mystery symbol.
John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin Jackpot
We didn’t expect a progressive jackpot suddenly added to the John Hunter series, but we were taken aback a little to see the max potential smaller than the previous edition. The max payout of the John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin slot game is 4,000x your base bet.
