The Maya both fascinate and haunt mankind, even hundreds of years after their demise. A self-sustaining civilization that was not destined to survive to the present day is the main attraction of Red Tiger's Mayan Gods online slot machine.It's not an original theme, looking at you - NetEnt's Gonzo, but we admit that we have had a soft spot for jungle temples ever since Indiana Jones, and we were looking forward to playing at the betsafe online casino.
The Game’s visuals
The visuals of the game are excellent, typical for a Red Tiger game. This is not just the unadulterated graphics but also the sounds and music. The authors have managed to mix the exact cocktail you need for the slot to draw you into the game. Additionally, the developers have incorporated the popular conspiracy theory about the Mayan connection to UFOs into the visuals, so if you're into mysteries, this may be a small, insignificant plus when playing this game.
Basic game properties
The Mayan Gods slot machine relies on classic gameplay. It is composed of 5 reels, 3 rows, and you can win in up to 20 winning lines. We didn't mention NetEnt at the beginning of this article by accident. There are several common features between their games and Mayan Gods. One of the trickiest ones is the way the symbols are displayed on the reels. We can't talk about reels per se, they are rather columns into which stones fall. And it is the falling rocks that clearly refer to NetEnt's games and in particular Gonzo’s Quest.
Other features from competitors are also retained. For example, after a win, all winning symbols disappear and are replaced by the symbols above them, with the topmost symbols being replaced by new symbols (avalanche effect). Of course, you do not pay for this partial respin. In addition, as is customary, each such respin will increase your win multiplier, which is shown in the top right corner. If you manage to string together several wins in a row, you can win an interesting amount.
Bonus features of the slot machine
Red Tiger treated us to a plethora of bonuses, to our detriment at times. But don't take that as a criticism, just a little sigh. Each one of them is quite original, has its own animation and their appearance is not exceptional.
There are 4 bonus features and each one does something different. They are symbolized by 4 special symbols with their own graphics.
The Mayan King is the Wild symbol. It appears as a mega symbol, i.e. a 2x2 tile. In the role of a joker, it substitutes any missing symbols in a winning combination.
The Mayan eclipse similar to the Mayan King appears in the larger size of 2x2. Its specialty, however, is that it randomly replaces several previously spun symbols on the board with others that are of the same type.
The symbol of the Mayan UFO is just that, a symbol that uses the value of symbols. After the slot is spun, it removes all low-value symbols from the slot and replaces them with high-value symbols.
You'll love the Mayan shaman symbol too. This can increase the win multiplier by a jolt, plus it removes all symbols on the screen and replaces them with brand-new ones. So he gives you one free spin.
You can see for yourself that Red Tiger has once again let their imagination run wild with the bonuses and served us 4 tasty treats. We enjoyed them immensely. As a bonus, we also take the opportunity to play with the Mayan Gods slot machine for progressive jackpots. For example, there is both a Daily Drop and an overall Super Drop.
Mayan Gods Slot Machine Review
Writing about the slot machines from Red Tiger is difficult. It's tricky not to repeat yourself and just talk about them being great. Mayan Gods may not be as dynamic as other Tiger slots at first glance, but they make up for it with great bonuses and the falling symbols feature. If you get a taste for Mayan treasures, visit an online casino and try to tickle the Mayan gods.
