From Malta-based developer Swintt, Mega Maya slot plays on a simple 3×3 grid so it’s quite small-scale, and with a mere five active Paylines. It was launched in the autumn of 2020.
Its focus is the ancient culture of the Mayans, and the jungle setting features the mandatory temple. Reels are framed in stone columns and carvings, with the flaming torches on either side a nice finishing flourish.
Mega Maya slot is part of the Lite series of games from this operator, which are optimised with simple mechanics and aimed at particular markets.
How to play
This game works as well on mobile as it does on a PC screen. Set up Autospin if you want the reels to turn for a preset number of times without interruption, for a maximum of 100 spins.
(Click on Cancel to halt this option at any time; it’s also deactivated following a bonus or feature activity.)
Symbols are gold tablets with Mayan designs, mainly inspired by the natural world, in an attractive colour palette; there are seven regular symbols in all. Paylines are three horizontal lines plus two diagonals.
Symbols payout from left to right except for the Scatter, which pays in both directions. And the highest win per Payline is paid.
Mega Maya Slot Special Features
There is a Wild in this game, a pony-tailed explorer fellow. In standard fashion, he replaces all symbols bar the Scatter.
Free Spins Meter
With every Scatter symbol landed, you can collect more free spins in the freebies meter to the left of your screen. Once you have triggered this bonus round, you can play them all. At the same time, look forward to raking in some big wins, enhanced by the multiplier reel described below.
The number of free spins you will enjoy is decided by the number of Scatter icons landed during the base game. And, as usual, once you have three Scatters, the free spins round kicks in.
With this, you get the opportunity to multiply whatever you have won in both the base game and the bonus round, up to a tidy maximum of 15x your overall stake, with a random multiplier applied to each spin. All wins in the relevant spin are multiplied by the value you’ve been awarded.
(There is actually a fourth reel that holds the random multipliers applied to wins from the first three wins.)
Unfortunately, this game doesn’t feature a progressive jackpot. Instead, the maximum win you can bag is 3,750x your stake.
Return to Player
This operator tends to offer quite low RTPs, and Mega Maya slot is no exception at 95.10%, which is marginally below the industry average. You will find it to be a mid- variance offering.
It’s hardly the first slot game to feature an ancient civilisation as its theme, complete with jungle and temple backdrop but the graphics here are nicely done. As ever with Swintt, you should find it a good choice if you just fancy playing something nicely uncomplicated.
