You certainly get to see a lot of the world when playing slot games. Whether it’s surfing in America, searching Egyptian pyramids or trying to find out the Best of British you’ll find them all when playing slot games. In ‘Book of Maya’ we’re off to South America where the search is on for the treasures of some extinct tribes. Hopefully playing this game from Novomatic will lead to you winning some treasures of your own.
This is another game similar to the hugely popular ‘Book of Ra.’ It has five-reels, a total of three rows of symbols and you can play between one and ten paylines. Just how many you choose to activate is entirely up to you. Simply work out a financial budget and then stick to it, that way you can carry on playing the game without any financial worries.
Symbols in the game include the archaeologist off on another treasure hunt (five of him on an active payline wins you 20000 your line bet), some Mayan worship statues and the ten to Ace playing card symbols that are given a bit of a colourful look but aren’t really theme-related. They are the lower paying symbols in the game.
The wild symbol in this game is the Book of Maya. It’s a really important symbol as it has the power to substitute for other symbols to bring you some wins. As in the other ‘Book’ games, it’s on double duty as the Book of Maya is also the scatter symbol in this game. More about how important that symbol is when we look at the bonus games in this slot.
As you should always do with any slot game that you play, make sure you know a great deal about it before playing for real. Have a glance through the paytable to find out all about how much each winning combination pays and how the extra bet and bonus games work. Then simply have some free plays and see the game in all its glorious action.
This is one of those games that you’ll want to be playing for a long time, most Novomatic slot games fit into that category. If you want a break from the screen or just get fed up having to press the spin button all the time, just set an autoplay feature for a set number of automated spins.
If you get three or more of the Book of Maya symbols anywhere on the reels then this triggers the bonus round. The fact that the symbol can appear anywhere on the reels means it’s not imperative for you to be activating all the paylines all the time. Just playing with one payline activated is enough to put you in with a chance.
You’re awarded ten free spins for landing those three scatters but the action doesn’t start right away. Next up is the Book of Maya and it has to determine a symbol that will become an expanding one during the free spins and cover all of its reel. That really gives you a good chance to get some wins.
The game also includes an ‘Extra Bet’ feature. When you activate this it gives you a chance to win bonus respins during the free spins bonus round. When a winning combination of special symbols is achieved all the remaining reels spin again with the winning ones staying just where they are. This can hopefully see you getting more wins. The ‘Extra Bet’ is equivalent to the total amount of the stake placed on the spin.
Again this has many similarities with the Book of Ra game. There are some differences though that definitely add to the enjoyment of this slot. The ‘Extra Bet’ is definitely able to get you some good wins, just be careful with the affect it may have on how much you spend on the game. Definitely recommended.
