John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure - Bonus Features
The bad news is that there’s just the one bonus feature to look forward to. The good news is that this free spins round has serious potential.
To activate the free spins, you’ll need to get three Aztec shield symbols, which can appear anywhere on the reels. Unlike spear-throwing natives or flesh-eating plants, it’s a case of the more Scatters (because that is what they are) the better.
No adventure would be complete without a moment of suspense where you don’t know what’s about to happen next. Think that scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where ‘Indy’ has to choose the cup he thinks is the Holy Grail and that moment of suspense where he’s either going to make it or, pretty much, turn to dust.
It’s a similar thing here. Ahead of each free spin round, the Bonus Wheel will determine how many free spins you will get. With 3 Scatters you can get 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins, one Scatter more and you are guaranteed a minimum of 10 free spins. With 5 Scatters you get at least 15 extra rounds to play, but of course in all cases you will be calling on the Aztecs gods to give you those 25 free spins.
However, the number of free spins you get isn’t necessarily just the ones you started off with. Far from it. Getting two or more bonus Scatters during the free spins gets you additional ones:
· 2 bonus scatters give you 3, 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins
· 3 bonus scatters give you 4, 5, 10 or 15 free spins
· 4 bonus scatters give you 5, 10 or 15 free spins
· 5 bonus scatters give you an impressive 10 or 15 free spins
As if the treasure of free spins wasn’t big enough already, a smaller wheel at the top of the screen decides just before each free spin whether it’s about to add one of the following multipliers which will be applied to each win: 2x, 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x.
What multiplier do you get on additional free spins you win during the bonus round? Glad you asked. It’s the same one that was in play when you triggered those extra free spins.
