Mayan Treasures Slot by Bally Technologies
The Mayan Treasures slot is a well-crafted online video slot game produced by slot developer Bally Technologies. As the name suggests, the game has a Mayan theme and features images of ancient Mayan carvings, jewelled necklaces and exotic jungle creatures. The backdrop to the game is an ornate Mayan rock carving decorated with intricate patterns and hieroglyphs. The reels themselves are fully translucent with symbols floating above the backdrop. The graphics are clear, sharp and bursting with colour. When the reels spin, the game issues out a deep mystical music soundtrack that draws players deeper into the game.
5-reel Mayan Jungle Slot
The Mayan Treasures slot is played out over 5 reels and features 3 rows with a total of 40 paylines. The coin denomination can be set from 0.01 coins up to 10 coins per line. A standard feature of all Bally games is the auto-play function where players can set specific number of automated spins which can be turned on or off at any time. In terms of bonus features, Mayan Treasures offers up Wild symbols, Scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers. On the reels, the base game features five themed symbols and four high card symbols.
The highest paying non-bonus symbol in the Mayan Treasures slot is the golden Mayan statue. Finding all five of these will pay out 1000 coins on a single bet and 5000 coins on a max bet of 10 coins per line. After the statue, the next highest paying symbol is the golden bracelet followed by the necklace and the blue butterflies. The final themed symbol is the spotted tree frog. For the lower paying symbols, Bally have used the classic high card symbols from jack to ace.
Wild and Scatter Symbol
The Wild symbol in the Mayan Treasures slot is the gold plate. This symbol can be used to substitute for other base game symbols to form a winning combination. The Wild symbol also pays out up to 5000 coins for all five across the reels. The Scatter symbol in this game is the image of the pink crystals. The Scatter symbol pays out in any position on the reels and acts as a bet multiplier. Finding all five across the reels will result in a payout of 100x the total bet stake.
Free Spins with added Wilds and Multipliers
The Mayan Treasures slot features a free spins bonus round. To trigger the free spins round, players must land the three separate words “FREE, GAMES and BONUS” on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. Once triggered, players will be awarded 5 free spins where every win automatically comes with a 5x multiplier. The free spins round is played on a completely separate set of reels.
In the bonus round, the Wild symbol is joined by a 2X Wild and a 3x Wild. When either the 2x or the 3x Wild appears on the reels, it will substitute and multiply the line win. If players land the 3x multiplier it will work in conjunction with the 5x already in play to make up a 15x multiplier.
