Whats not so hot?
Novomatic is a software provider that occupies the top echelons of terrestrial gaming. A few years ago the vendor decided to venture into the online casino scene. Since then it never looked back. It just released another epic 3D slots this time round Two Mayans. The game features 25 paylines and 5 reels.
It’s based on the Mayan civilization. Of all the classical Mesoamerican civilizations the Mayans are probably the best known. They started out around 2,500 years BC and rose to prominence in 25 AD and flourished in the Yucatan (Mexico, Guatemala, Western Honduras, El Salvador and northern Belize) peninsula.
Novomatic once again brings this proud race to life across the reels. The game graphics and animations are best described as adequate. Paying symbols across the reels are Mayan Indians, pyramids, stone hyroglyps, sun disk, golden jaguar, masks and coins. Card symbols from 10 to Ace appear across the reels as well. The total jackpot payout is 2,000 times your stake. The game offers a RTP (return to player) of 96%. Additional wins are offered by wild and scatter icons.
Before you embark on your epic adventure let’s have a look at the coin range first. It starts off with 0.02 up to 4.00. If you elected 4 at 25 paylines you’ll wager £$100 per spin. Five Two Mayan symbols at the maximum bet pays out 8,000 coins. The game has an ‘Auto Play’ feature that spins the reels automatically.
Once you start traipsing through the dense jungle in search of lost Mayan treasures. Look out for two symbols: The wild and the Bonus icons. When the random wild appears it substitutes all the other symbols except the bonus icon.
When the wild pitches it shows up in a blow flame and offers additional payouts. At a bet of $5 per spin I experienced loads of wins during the base game. That being said, the biggest win I landed was $50, 2 wilds in conjunction with 4 Queens.
Free Spins: Like any 3D slots worth its weight in gold I’m happy to see that it does offer a free spins bonus game. The free spins are triggered by two bonus symbols which must appear simultaneously. Look out for the Mayan mask with two golden earrings. It only appears on reels 1 and 5. Wins during the free spins are paid out by number of paylines, bets must be fixed and all wins are doubled. The free spins can be re-triggered when the 2 masks appear again.
Gamble Feature (Double Up)
After each win you get the opportunity to double it. When you click on the ‘Gamble’ button you’re presented with a red and black card. If you picked the correct card your wins will be doubled instantly. Pick the wrong one; not only will you lose your winnings but you’ll return to the base game.
Overall Two Mayans is enjoyable Novomatic slots with immersive game animations, a free spins bonus game, a gamble feature and wilds. Just a pity it does not offer the usual scatter icons.
