Mayan Princess Slots

Mayan-PrincessThough there are a lot of slot machines already with a theme that revolves around Mayans or princesses from long lost South American civilizations, few do the design part as well as Mayan Princess. It’s one of the creations that have come out of Microgaming’s labs, and they certainly did their best work here. Its great design could certainly help with the gameplay, but let’s see how the rest of the slot does.

This beautiful game hosts 5 reels with 20 lines on them, with symbols that include a scatter and a wild, plus the free spins that can be triggered. You can only win up to $10,000 from it.

Features of Mayan Princess

You will find that there are all the right features in Mayan Princess, starting with a simple wild, then a scatter symbol and the resulting round of free spins and their multipliers.

They didn’t exactly go all out on the wild feature. It’s a typical symbol in pretty much every way, starting with the fact that it doesn’t bring you any kind of extras, so it will help you by substituting for others, but the prizes will not be increased by it. You also have to get the wild in just the right location before it can lend a helping hand, with other matching icons on the same active win line. Like it often happens, the wild is the one that can bring you the best payouts of this slot, offering a 5,000x multiplier for the line bet when it covers an entire line.

Free Games Feature

The only other symbol that isn’t considered regular is the Pyramid scatter. This symbol is reserved for two of the five reels, the 1st and 5th. It doesn’t matter where on the reels the scatter lands, but it has to be on both of them at the same time. When that happens, you get the free spins bonus.


You can get between 10 and 20 spins for free from this feature, with all their prizes worth twice as much. You can also re-trigger this particular feature, should the two scatters make another appearance.


Betting options and jackpots

The full betting range starts at only $0.01 per line, and it can reach $2. With 20 lines used (though you don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to), the bet reaches a top value of $40. Coins go up to $0.20 and you can use up to 10 per line.

The game will put a reward of 5,000x the line wager in your pocket, with the right combo of symbols on an active line. It’s not as big as in other slots, but it’s still a $10,000 jackpot.

Design and symbols

By far, the best thing about this slot is the design. There are a lot of details and a lot of great colors included in every single symbol. The images, all of them connected with the Mayans, are surrounded by silver or golden braided decorations. A Mayan temple serves as the backdrop for all this action, and you can see one of their ancient pyramids back there as well.


Symbols: Logo (wild, 5,000x), Pyramid (scatter), Princess (3,000x), Leopard (2,000x), Mayan Sun Idol (1,000x), Spirit Bird (500x), Warrior (300x), Yucatan Parrot (250x), Alligator (200x), Corn (150x) and Peppers (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

It doesn’t have that much to offer in the way of prizes, but its features and design manage to make up for that part. If you enjoy good looking slots, with themes built around South American civilizations, make sure you give it a try.

The Mayan Princess slot machine is offered through the Microgaming platform, so if you want to play it for real or just to practice, look out for casinos that use it.
