Now here’s a game that really has a great look to it. The symbols in this slot from Microgaming look really attractive and definitely added to my enjoyment of playing the game. We take a trip around the world and back in time with ‘Mayan Princess’ so that’s two of the popular themes for slot games in one.
Back we go 4000 years to celebrate the Maya culture in an empire that went all the way from southern Mexico to Central America. They were a mighty civilisation but only really known by most people these days because they did tend to predict the end of the world. The thing is if they get it right who’s going to congratulate them?
This colourful game has five reels and a total of 20 paylines. In the background we can see the top of a Mayan-style pyramid which enhances the theme really well. The cost of playing the game ranges from £0.01 to £100 if playing all the paylines at maximum bet. That’s a decent range because it will suit players who just want a bit of fun and those who want to spin the reels and get some big cash wins.
Onto the lovely symbols that really are the highlight of this game. There’s a bird, sweetcorn, a sun god icon, a reclining tiger (probably been a busy day), a Mayan warrior, a carving of a red bird, an alligator and chillies, which just like this game are hot stuff.
The wild symbol in this game is the Mayan Princess herself. Her highness plays an important role in this game due to her ability to be able to substitute for other symbols in the game. That means you can get some winning combinations that you wouldn’t otherwise have had. It can’t substitute for the scatter symbol which is the pyramid. That would make it easier for you to trigger the bonus game and the designers want you to work a little bit harder to do that. Five of the wild symbols will win you the jackpot in this game which is 5000x your line bet.
Before you start playing the game it’s important to know as much about it as possible. Having a look through the paytable and having some free games will do just that.
To get some free spins you need to get the pyramid scatter symbol anywhere on the first and fifth reels. You’re awarded a random number of between ten and 20 free spins. Any wins you get during the free spins are doubled so the more free spins you get the better.
This is a fairly straightforward game when it comes down to the way the game runs. The free spins round can be profitable if you’re lucky enough to get 20 free spins and the wins start to flow. It’s the look of the game that impresses me most and the soundtrack isn’t too bad either. You might not want to play this for too long due to the limited bonus features but it’s definitely worth playing for a while and it can be a profitable time for you.
