Maya is the latest announced release from Red Rake Gaming, and it’s going to be launched in October 2018. The slot is featuring Mayan inspired graphics, along with some very cool features by the looks of it. Red Rake will often surprise with excellent slot machines, and we’re hoping that Maya will be in that category as well.
First, expect a slot with 5 reels which make room for 50 active lines to be part of the action each round. You will have access to free spins with huge symbols, to a Mayans Gold feature and to fixed jackpots, so there should be enough reasons for you to want to try the game out.
Betting and Prizes
The bet is decided via the Total Bet option, which you will see at the bottom, near the middle of that row of options. You start from a minimum of $0.50, and you take it from there to a value that you can afford using for the entire game session.
Th rewards should be pretty good, but the ones which will get your attention will probably be the fixed jackpots which are seen at the top. The Grand, Major and Minor Jackpots are there, and their values range from 50x to 1,500x the bet of that spin. You win these jackpots via a special bonus feature.
Maya Slot Features
I’ve discovered several good features in Maya, so even though the theme is not very original, there are areas in the game that will keep you entertained for a long time.
First off, expect for the wild symbols to be present, and to take the form of Mayan Priests. These are the substitutes that you’re waiting for in every game, used to act as replacements if they land in the right spot.
The reels 1, 3 and 5 may host special Bonus Pyramid symbols, which you will need on all three in order to get the feature they offer. You win 6 free spins this way, and for their duration there will be the possibility of landing Huge symbols on the reels. These are symbols which are sized at 3x3, so they occupy all positions on the middle three reels if they appear. They also give you 3 extra free spins if they land.
The Huge Coin icon, if it appears during the free games, will initiate a feature called Mayans Gold. It will add 3 additional free spins to the total, during which the Gold Coins are locked in their position. Get additional coins in the other positions, and they remain in place as well, while resetting the counter. Once you run out of free spins or when you fill the reels with coins, the feature ends.
It’s the Mayans Gold feature that can trigger one of the three fixed jackpots. The coins which appear on the reels will reveal either coin prizes or the logo of the Jackpots.
Theme & Design
Maya’s theme is quite clear, being inspired by Mayan civilization and its accomplishments. It’s got a more detailed design than most slots of this type, and it looks very good. It has images of pyramids, priests, gold idols, pottery and statues of Mayan origins. For the background, you get once again an image of their pyramids.
Maya can be a fun game, it has several jackpots to trigger and interesting free spins, so if the common Mayan theme is to your liking, give it a try.
