Many players often choose slots that are devoted to the history of the ancient Maya people. The culture of the ancient Indian reflected in the design and great graphics. In Quickspin company, there is a large choice of such games. But special attention should be paid to Mayana slot. It is popular among the players. There you can find an unusual playing field, it can grow, and moreover, it can give out increased 20x the winnings. The percentage of payments at the slot machine is equal to 96.63%.
Review and recommendations from the testing team
- Mayana slot does not have any bonus features or free spins, even with that said it is highly popular among players for its simple and easy gameplay, as well as the good potential for giving winnings of more than 1000x bets, which the slot can release directly from the first spins.
- The gameplay of the slot is reduced to making the payment combination of 3 identical symbols during the usual spin on the playing reels with 27 winning lines, after which the playing field expands, multiplier x2 and re-spin are both triggered. When another symbol of the same kind (or 3 others) is shown, the playing reels also expands, already to the maximum, with 243 pay lines, multiplier x3 and another re-spin is also triggered, which continues until a new symbol is added that is part of the payment combination. When the re-spins are finished, the “Mucha Mayana Feature” can be triggered randomly, boosting multiplier x3 to become multiplier from x4 to x20. All winnings gained during re-spin are summarized.
- A big part of the spins (when all reels are not opened, with multiplier x1-2) brings wins smaller than normal bet size to just a few bets, while the slot sometimes makes a long series of spins with no wins. The biggest winnings are given when the reels are fully opened and will depend on the symbol (small or top payments), as well as the number of re-spins.
- The average reward of such combinations is from 5x-20x bets (less often less than 5x). Sometimes the slot, however, gives out the biggest winnings within 30x-70x total bets, and also during testing, it was possible to get a win of 150x-300x bets. The maximum payout fixed by the provider was 1138x bets (I remind you, this is without the “Mucha Mayana Feature” to be triggered).
- The average payment when “Mucha Mayana” is triggered can also be minimal, and depend on the quality of symbols involved and also their number. So, with an average multiplier of x5-x10, winnings were only reaching 5x-20x bets (and the winning of only 21x was won with multiplier x20). It was possible to get bigger winnings within the range of 50x-150x total bets (with an average multiplier of x5-10), and the maximum payout recorded by the provider when the feature is triggered and the multiplier of x20 was 1160x bets.
Mayana slot keeps its balance very well at a short distance of several hundred spins (unless, of course, the slot is not “cold”), but for a longer spin distance, it can make big losses. That’s why we don’t recommend it while playing with bonus money. While playing for real money, I would recommend only short distances of spins using progressive betting strategies.
