Mayan Treasure Slots

Mayan-TreasureMayan Treasure is quite predictable in what it offers you, being obviously themed around the treasures that the Mayan people supposedly left behind. South American long lost civilizations tend to be quite popular among developers, no matter from what companies they are. Besides the Mayan theme, which is found in dozens of titles, there are also Aztec and Inca themed games out there. The developer in this case is a well known one, called NextGen, the game being offered as part of IGT’s collection.

When the reels spin you’re going to discover that there are 5 of them in Mayan Treasure. When you win prizes, the combinations will form on the 20 paylines which are used. The list of features provides you with free spins, with multipliers of up to 10x, with scatter symbols and wilds. The top payouts will be the ones that will seem inadequate compared with everything else, giving you at best $800.

Features of Mayan Treasure

If you decide to give this game a chance, among the features which you might encounter along the way there will be a wild symbol with a multiplier, a scatter, a bonus game and free spins which can pay up to 10 times more than the base game.

You will discover the image of the Mayan Idol on the symbol which gets the role of the wild in this game. The thing I enjoyed most about it, besides the 4,000x jackpot that it offers when it forms its own 5 symbol combo, would be the fact that it applies a x2 multiplier to any win that is offered when it uses its substitution ability. As expected, the wild is not capable of substituting for a scatter symbol.

The scatter would be the symbol which has a Mayan Pyramid on it. One of the great accomplishments of the Mayans, which we’re still not 100% sure how they were done, the Pyramid is a very good image if you’re looking for something representative for this civilization. Being a scatter symbol in this case, the position in which it appears doesn’t matter that much. It’s more important that you get enough of them to appear, prizes reaching top values of 100x the bet value if all five are in place.

Free Games Feature

If you happen to get at least 3 Mayan Pyramids scatters on the reels, at the same time, your reward will be this free spins feature. 10 spins are available inside, accompanied by 2x multipliers.

To retrigger the free spins, you need 2, 3, 4 or 5 Pyramids, which will get you 5, 10, 15 or 20 additional rounds for free.

Mayan Treasure Temple

This feature starts up once the free spins are done. You are asked to pick one of the Idols shown, three of them being displayed. Your choice will give you a multiplier for the wins from the free games. It can be at 10x, 3x or 2x.

Betting options and jackpots

20 coins can be part of any wager you place in this game, and that will be enough to cover all the lines. What the bet is worth depends on the denomination of those coins, the maximum being only $0.20. At the highest level, you can expect to wager $4 on one spin.

If you take home the big prize, which gives you 4,000 coins, you will get $800 cash. Luckily, there are multiple ways to get more money out of the slot, either with the wild’s multiplier, the one from the free spins, or the 10x multiplier from the bonus feature. In theory, you can get up to 20 times more, if all the elements align just right. For that, you would need to win the jackpot while playing the free spins, and then you would need the 10x multiplier from the bonus feature which follows after those spins.

Design and symbols

It’s a dark enough design that you’re getting here, the image appearing to be taken in the early hours of the morning. The jungle is shown behind the reels, the way it is present in many other slot machines with a similar theme. The symbols are Mayan related in some cases, though some of them are simply precious gems, while others are rather badly made playing cards, made out of cracked stone by the looks of it.


Symbols: Mayan Idol (4,000 coins, wild), Mayan Pyramid (100x bet, scatter), Mayan Statue (1,000 coins), Mayan Calendar (500 coins), Ruby (200 coins), Emerald (200 coins), Ace (125 coins), King (125 coins), Queen (100 coins), Jack (100 coins), 10 (100 coins) and 9 (100 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

You might not expect it, since the theme is so common, but it’s a very good game, with big multipliers to improve the prizes, and with features that you will appreciate for what they have to offer.

Mayan Treasure can be found at any IGT casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
