It’s not the most unique theme around, we’ve seen enough Mayan stories being told in slots, but the quality is a lot better than what I’ve come to expect from this category.
It’s the usual type of design offered by Red Tiger, and it revolves around images of Mayan objects and representations of nature’s elements.
Red Tiger Gaming has been making waves for the last couple of years, releasing some very interesting slot machines, at least when it comes to visuals.
They have two types of games to offer, some for the Western market, the others for the Asian one. The graphics always seem to be spot on in their slots, but as a downside it also seems that the features tend to be very similar, and they rely a bit too much on randomly triggered features.
They’ve started diversifying their collection lately, and these days they have some unique things to offer as well.
How To Play It
To set up the wager, you need to click on the Stake option, and then you can just pick whatever value works for you. The list starts from a $0.20 minimum, and can reach a top value of only $10.
It’s a relatively common type of slot machine, one where you can use regular winning combinations, along with various randomly triggered features. There are exciting features to be found as well, but more on that below. As for its layout, the game delivers 5 reels & 20 active lines.
When forming winning combinations, the game will form Chain Reactions, which are used to replace winning symbols with others. A multiplier also goes up, each time that this happens, and then resets once you get a chain reaction without a new win in it.
Mayan Kings are used as 2×2 wilds, and they can also give you extra wilds on the reels, when it makes an appearance.
Mayan Eclipse is a feature which has 2×2 symbols as well, and they transform into one random icon, being a mystery symbol.
Mayan UFO will replace symbols of low value, with higher value ones.
Mayan Shaman gives you a bigger multiplier, and then destroys symbols in order to trigger a respin.
In addition to those symbols, you will also find the regular wild on the reels. This symbol pays the most here, 500 coins for a full combo, and it also acts as a replacement.
For the game’s top payout in a regular spin, you’re looking at up to 500x the stake, a reward which could turn into $5,000 cash, given the actual bet value that is possible for a single round. You get a top payout of 25x the stake for each winning combo formed, which has only wilds in it.
Various features will help you by increasing the odds of forming wins, or by boosting the multiplier. The Cascading Reels can help you do better as well, since the multiplier goes up each time that you get a win.
Set at 96.11%, the Return to Player is at a decent level in Mayan Gods. The slot pays a fair amount back to the players that give it a chance, at least in the long run and for all of its spins. Your own results with a game may vary considerably, from what the RTP is like.
The game does spice things up with multipliers, so it can do quite a bit better than the 500x the stake that’s available usually. It has fun features, but the graphics style is the one that is usually found in Red Tiger slots, and it’s starting to feel repetitive.
