Mad for Maya? It seems like there’s some kind of trend sweeping the world of slots right now – first IGT announce Maya Gold, and now our chums at NetEnt are bringing us their own spectacular take on a similar theme, with Rise of Maya.
So what’s it all about? Well, this five reel slot features jazzy visuals inspired by mystical Mayan masks, with players transported (figuratively) inside a lost temple, to the altar of an ancient god.
Doubtless players will engage in a spot of tampering with forces they don’t understand, meddling with matters that mankind was never meant to encounter, before hopefully copping a decent payout in the process. Sounds like a winner!
The priest symbol is the one you’ll want to keep an eye out for, though this particular member of the clergy is pretty wild – his face is a weird animal skull affair, complete with antlers. It’s also the highest paying symbol in the game…
There’s a Second Chance Scatter Re-Spin feature – if two scatters land on the reels, the slot will respin the empty reels, giving you another chance to get the third scatter. There’s also a Bonus Bet option – use this if you want to increase your chances of landing Free Spins.
With three scatters, you’ll be granted 10 Free Spins, complete with Hot Reels. And all wilds that land on the Hot Reels are destined to expand, giving you a better chance at scooping a handsome payout.
You’ll want to keep an eye on Serpent Wild symbols – when these land on the reels, they substitute for other symbols, and also activate Free Spins with hot reels.
Those wacky Mayans might have been off (by a decade or so, probably) when they predicted the end of the world for 2012, but we think they’ve got things bang on with this latest slot. Ready for a high-Rise? This slot is going to be very popular indeed in 2020…
Rise of Maya is released on 10th February 2020 – in the meantime, visit 32Red Casino to check out a wide range of table games and slots that will keep you entertained for now!
