One of my favourite new online pokies that I can recommend keeping an eye out for this week is the new John Hunter and the Mayan Gods online pokie from Pragmatic Play. It was released on desktop and mobile as recently as Thursday, December 10th, and it can now be found at numerous top-rated Kiwi online casinos such as Casino.com and 888 Casino.
This popular online pokie series also includes titles such as John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure, John Hunter and the Secret of Da Vinci’s Treasure, John Hunter and the Book of Tut, and John Hunter and the Tomb of the Scarab Queen. It’s playable (either in the real money mode or free play demo mode) from as little as NZ$0.10 per spin up to a maximum of NZ$100.00 per spin, and on any lucky spin, it’s possible to win up to 500x times your total stake.
This brand new Ancient Civilization/Mayan-themed online pokie takes just seconds to launch in most web browsers, no download required. It has 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines, and some of the most important symbols to keep an eye out for are the Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols. The Golden Mayan Icon is the Wild Symbol, and the Mayan Temple is the Scatter Symbol. Wild Symbols will only ever land on reels 2, 3, and 4 (the three middle reels), and they will substitute all other symbols apart from the Scatter Symbols.
Each time a Wild Symbol lands, it can expand upwards and downwards to fill the entire reel from top to bottom and help complete winning combos for you. The good news is that that it’s possible to land Expanding Wild Symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. When they land on all 3 middle reels, the payout is generally fairly big. You will also get to take part in a Free Spins Bonus when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin.
When the bonus triggers, you’ll receive 12 Free Spins, and then each time another Wild Symbol lands at any point throughout the bonus, you’ll get to advance to the next level. There are as many as 6 different levels to win prizes from, plus each time a Wild Symbol lands, you’ll also receive 1 extra Free Spin. If 2 Wild Symbols land, then you will get to advance 2 levels instead of 1, and you’ll receive 2 more Free Spins. If 3 Wild Symbols land on the reels on the same spin at any point throughout the bonus, you’ll get to advance 3 levels, and you’ll receive 5 more Free Spins.
