Mayana Slot from Swedish operator Quickspin offers from 27 and up to 243 ways of winning, with an initial 3×3 playing format which can expand to five reels.
Expect cartoonish graphics in this game inspired by the culture of the Mayans – the indigenous people of Mexico and other Central American nations whose ancient civilisation lasted nearly four thousand years.
It’s set in a thick, steamy forest, where you’re on the hunt for Mayan gold. Symbols whirl on massive blocks of stone. With no Wild symbols or bonus rounds as such, Mayan is all about the mechanics of the gameplay.
How to play
Price per spin kicks off from 25p a pop, going up to £100 a go if you’re a high roller. Equally, you can play Mayana across all devices, PC and mobile.
Your symbols on the reels include gemstones in four different colours (green, purple, blue and grey), plus four animal masks, in green, red, yellow and purple; the latter are the higher-value symbols. The most rewarding icon is the red, devil-like one, offering 6x stake for five in a go. It’s followed by the jaguar mask and then the medium-ranking purple owl and green frog mask symbols.
Winning combos are formed by matching up icons on at least three neighbouring reels.
Mayana Slot special features
As mentioned, there are none of these in Mayana Slot.
This is definitely the highlight here. As the game kicks off, you’ll see a 3×3 reel set with only 27 Paylines to start off with, but it gets interesting once you land a winning combo.
The contributing symbols stay fixed in place, and you get a free respin as the reels expand. If you land more matching icons on the next spin, the process goes on with further reel expansion, with a multiplier of up to 3x added to any further wins awarded.
Once there are no more matching icons, the reels will reset to their original position.
Mucho Mayana feature
This perk can be a nice little earner, and it triggers at random on the third and final respin so long as the reels are fully expanded. Essentially, your payout gets multiplied by up to 20x here, so it’s definitely something to keep an eye out for.
Mayana Slot does not have a progressive jackpot – maximum default win on one Payline during the base game is 750x stake on every spin.
Return to Player (RTP)
This is a high-variance affair measuring nearly the maximum 5 on Quickspin’s own volatility scale, while RTP or Return to Player is a generous 96.63%. Bear in mind that you may need to wait a while and sit through quite a few spins before you see any reel action!
Mayana Slot is a fast-paced game, while any winning spin is made potentially rewarding thanks to the respins and the multipliers. But it’s also a very simple one to learn. It has this operator’s typical good looks and intelligent gameplay, while the setting is exotic and the graphics and animations super-sharp.
