Quickspin is 1 of the top developers around when it comes to the design of its slot games and Mayana is another treat for the senses. Set against a jungle backdrop, the reels are set within a set of stones.
To start, you’ll play with a 3 reel, 3 row machine which offers 27 ways to win – land a winner and you’ll be awarded a re-spin on a slightly expanded machine. Another re-spin follows if you land a winner, this time on a 108 ways to win machine. Any wins on that re-spin are also doubled. A third re-spin opens the reels up completely – you’ll play on a full 5 reel machine that offers 243 ways to win. All payouts on that third re-spin are trebled.
If the reels are fully expanded, you could be in line for the randomly triggered Mucha Mayana feature. This offers a multiplier boost of anything from 4x right up to 20x on that final re-spin!
The Mayan theme is evident in the design. You’ll see 4 lower value gemstone symbols. They’re joined by a frog, bird, big cat and skull motifs. The skull is the most rewarding, offering an award of 6 times your stake if you land 5 on successive reels.
There aren’t any wilds or scatters here. You won’t find any traditional bonus features like free spins, cash trails or pick me rounds. Don’t mistake Mayana as being a boring slot game though – we found the action came thick and fast, landing plenty of re-spins and multipliers.
The visuals are top notch and there a nice rhythmical backing track to accompany the action. The gameplay gallops along at a decent pace too. We always like to see a developer try something new and Quickspin has done just that in Mayana. Simple it may be but Mayana delivered plenty of entertainment and is well worth a closer look. If you want something more traditional, Spinions Beach Party and Leprechaun Hills, both by Quickspin, are worth trying.
