Historical civilisations appear to be a preferred set of themes for gaming and on-line gaming alike; simply have a look at Las Vegas, it’s filled with Greek and Roman themed casinos and arcades. The civilisation of selection right here is the Mayans; a mysterious South American jungle civilisation about which we all know little or no about past the wonderful stone temples and buildings they left behind.
Being within the thick of the South American jungle, most of the stays and artefacts of the Mayans have been left extremely properly preserved. The Mayan’s occupied Southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and elements of Honduras and El Salvador although in contrast to the Greeks and Romans, they didn’t journey additional afield or conquer some other territories. They went again so far as 8000 BC. By way of symbolism, they’re well-known for his or her temples, hieroglyphics and grotesque masks.
This isn’t the one slot recreation to characteristic Mayan imagery, with Mayan Treasures by Bally and Mayan Riches from IGT being probably the most well-known. Right here, Cayetano have produced a 5 reel, 10 payline recreation with a prime prize of 500 cash.
Uncover the Mysteries of the Mayans
With a Mayan theme you count on three primary issues; the jungle, temples and masks. Cayetano have given us two out of three right here, with a misty jungle backdrop to the reels and several other masks symbols. The masks are differentiated by the colors of their eyes, that are made to seem like treasured stones or in a single case, closed eyes however a purple nostril. There’s additionally a gold necklace image and a particular Mystery Image of a gold Mayan coin.
The opposite symbols are generic characters corresponding to Ok and 10, although no less than they’ve been decked out in an acceptable Mayan type font.
Whereas we don’t have any atmospheric background music, which we expect would have labored right here contemplating it’s a ‘Mystery’ recreation we do have acceptable jungle instrument sounds once we spin the reels and an prolonged musical sound whenever you land a successful mixture. General, the theme is obvious however hasn’t been exploited to its full functionality, which is a pity.

It has a complete of 10 symbols, with prizes starting from 10 cash to the five hundred coin jackpot.
The one image which has any extra perform is the Mystery Image of a gold Mayan coin, which when it seems spins to disclose one of many different symbols. We’re not solely certain what the purpose of that is, other than making you wait a pair extra seconds to see all of the symbols in your reels. Sadly there aren’t any different options or bonus video games right here so as to add curiosity.
Most disappointingly of all, the RTP fee of Mayan Mystery is a really low 92.1%, which is much under many different video slot video games. With none thrilling options to redeem itself, it is a level which is able to put many extra skilled gamers off. See the pay desk under for all of the image values.
Uncover the Mayan Masks to Unlock Their Riches
General, the paintings of this recreation is of a top quality, however sadly for a video slot it is extremely a lot missing in animations and extra options to take advantage of these graphics.
We just like the Mayan theme and sounds, symbols and background all match properly, nevertheless this recreation is let down by its lack of additional options and its very low RTP fee. For a jackpot of solely 500 cash, the returns provided by this recreation are too low to tempt most gamers who would moderately stake their cash on a recreation with the next return to participant fee.
So, sadly, there’s little thriller available on this Mayan themed slot; it’s properly designed however the format is simply too easy and the returns to low to make it an enormous hit with gamers.
