Where to play?
Realtime Gaming released another gem titled Mayan Queen. The Mayans were a proud South American civilization that flourished from 600 A.D to 1600A.D. They excelled at architecture, pottery, agriculture, mathematics, calendar-making and symbolic artwork. Mayan pyramids can be visited at archaeological sites like the Yucatan peninsula, Honduras and El Salvador. No wonder Realtime Gaming dedicates this slots machine to this great civilization lost in time.
Mayan Queen is a progressive jackpot slots that features 5 reels and 25 paylines. The RTP (return to player) of the game is 96%. Kudos to the developers because the graphics depicted across the reels portray the Mayan civilization accurately.
What the game lacks in the visual department it more than makes up for in its payouts, scatters, multipliers and wild substitutions. Icons that offer payouts in the base game are the pyramid, jaguar, emerald, gold coins, viper, golden statue and parrot. The game scores additional points since Mayan symbols are used instead of the usual card symbols. If you wagered the maximum bet per payline and 5 pyramid symbols come up you’ll receive a payout of 15,000 coins.
Before you play select the amount of coins you wish to bet per payline. The betting range starts with a mere $0.01 up to $125 and the coin size is $0.01 up to $0.5. The audio is a bit bland to my liking. But in RTG’s defense when the Mayan Queen appears in a winning combination the animations are superb. Customization features like full screen mode, sound options, audio settings, Auto and Turbo Play makes the game all the more entertaining. You can study the game rules by clicking on the ”Help” button.
The Mayan Queen is the wild symbol. When it appears on reel 3 it substitutes all the other symbols including the scatter symbol (Emerald), wow! The prize is doubled when the Queen substitutes any symbol in a winning combination.
Bonus Round (Free Spins)
The bonus round is triggered and awards 6 free spins when 3 or more Emerald scatter symbols appear. For the duration of the free spins round the Queen appears expanded. The bonus round can be re-triggered. The maximum win per payline is 50,000 times per pay line.
When 5 pyramid icons appear in conjunction with the Mayan Queen the jackpot payout is doubled to 30,000 coins. If you wagered the total bet per spin this translates into a spectacular win of 150,000 coins. Mayan Queen belongs to RTG’s expansive progressive jackpot network. The jackpot can be triggered randomly. It simply means that the progressive jackpot can be won on any spin.
Mayan Queen progressive slots captures the very essence of the Mayans across the reels. I must admit this is the first time I’ve come across a slots machine where the scatter symbol is replaced by the wild symbol. The expanding wild symbol and fixed jackpots makes this a very entertaining game to play. The animations could have been better though.
