How to Play Scarab Queen
Play couldn’t be easier. That’s part of the fun of the John Hunter Series. All you really need to get going is to place your bet. Take your pick of option from betting as low as 0.25 all the way up to 100. There’s up and down sides to both extremes. You could drag home a ridiculous amount of money should you win that max prize but if you go at it with a top of the line stake, it may cost you a pretty penny.
Scarab Queen Gameplay & Features
There is the usual selection of symbols including some special symbols which is all fine and good. There are three in particular you should pay attention to. The first is the Scarab Queen. Her Symbol acts as a WILD, replacing any symbol except for Scarabs and Scatters.
The second symbol is the the Pyramid Scatter. This is your key to the free spin round, which you wont want to miss. Drop three of these beauties and you get 8 free spins. You can land additional free spins during the free spin round itself. There is no limit on how many extra Free spins you could win, so you could be spinning for free for a while.

- Collect – the value of the scarabs are summed up and paid out.
