Join the fierce warrior for an epic reel battle on the slot from Peter & Sons powered by Yggdrasil’s YG Partners platform. Johnan Legendarian is taking you on a volatile journey through a fantasy world filled with wizardry and fantasy creatures. The game is a new take on the ‘Book of…’ reel mechanic in the bonus round, adding more expanding symbols on retriggers, as well as a collectable Super Free Spins feature that can lead to wins of up to 5,000 times your bet.
Johnan Legendarian is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for two to five matching symbols landing on a line from left to right only. You can join the mighty warrior on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.10 to 50 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.03% and a hit frequency of roughly 1:3 spins.
The protagonist will remind most who load the game of Conan the Barbarian. Johnan looks equally grim and fierce as Arnie in the movie, carrying his latest kill on his shoulders. The rest of the set up has a high-quality feel with frameless reels and giant carved wooden columns on either side. An epic soundtrack provides the main audio to the gameplay.
The pay symbols start at the low end with artistic card royals from 10 through to A, awarding 7x to 10x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by a bow and arrow set, a sword and two fierce creatures – wolf and dragon. Hit five across the reels to win 50x to 200x your stake. The bearded wizard is the wild scatter, substituting for all symbols and also triggering the free spins when sufficient land on a spin. Five on a line will yield 500x your bet.
Johnan Legendarian Slot Features
The ‘Book of…” genre is alive and kicking with well over 150 slots from dozens of provides populating online casino lobbies. While most are simple clones of the original Book of Ra from Novomatic and the more popular Book of Dead from Play’n GO, some developers are adding their own twist to make them stand out from the crowd. Peter & Sons is one of them, giving their game two extras that can have a significant impact on your potential winnings. Reason enough to take a closer look.
Hitting three or more scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger 10 Free Spins. Before the start of the round, one regular pay symbol is randomly selected to act as the special expanding symbol. After potential line wins are paid, it will expand and award a payout for all 10 pay lines even when the symbols are not on adjacent reels. You will need three low-value symbols or two high-value symbols in view on a free spin while expanded Wilds can substitute for the special symbol.
Landing again three or more scatters on a free spin will retrigger the feature and select a second expanding symbol. Plus, the free spin counter is reset to 10. Basically, a retrigger on the first free spins will get you only one extra spin.
Throughout the base game, two or more scatters in view will boost the progress bar at the bottom of the reels. Once it fills up, it will award 10 Super Free Spins with the same mechanics as in the standard feature. The difference is that a retrigger will not reset the counter to 10, instead, it will add + 10 free spins on each occasion. Worth noting is that it will take on average 2,100 spins to fill up the progress bar.
Whenever you think that all possible has been done with the “Book of…” mechanic, there is another developer popping onto the scene with a new twist. Peter & Sons are admittedly late with their take and decided not to give it a “Book of…” name but Johnan Legendarian looks good, is highly playable, just as volatile and has some extra perks included that makes it at least an equal contender to all other slots in the genre.
