Mayan Princess Slot Game from Microgaming

April 16, 2009

For slot game fans, it is always a nice experience to play slots of different themes. If you are one of them, then definitely you would be looking forward to play the new Mayan Princess Slot game from Microgaming. Its components and theme are so chosen that the whole experience would transport the players to a different world in a different era altogether. Mayan Princess is a five reel, 20 pay line slot game that lets players wager 10 coins per line. The denominations range between $0.01 and $0.20, which means that the minimum line bet is $2 and maximum total bet of $40.

The typical Mayan culture is seen everywhere in the game. The warrior with his body painted, and wearing a leopard skin headgear, engages in a violent war dance when the player hits a winning combination. The priestess becharming and alluring at the same time goes into a trance, when it is her turn to hand out the payouts. Corns, which are shown as an animation of ripe cobs being pounded into flour, and Pepper, both of which are the staple diets of the Mayans, are main symbols on the reels, so does the Crocodile, the Leopard and the colorful Parrot, and an array of masks. The crocodile symbol snaps its massive jaws, when it is time to dole out the payouts.

However, the most powerful symbol on the reel is the Pyramid. Historians say the pyramid had been the site of religious activities including sacrifices in the Mayan days. But in the game, the Pyramid is more benevolent to the players than anything violent. When a player gets the Pyramid symbol on reels 1 and 5, the sun rises behind it, announcing that the player had won between 10 and 20 free spins. The free spins could give double payouts to the players, and can be retriggered as well. Interestingly, the Mayan Princess, on whom the game has been named, is not anywhere on the reels in person. Instead, the princess is represented by a logo. It is the Wild Symbol. Appearance of five of the wild symbols on any active pay line guarantees a jackpot of 5,000 coins to the players. At max line bets, this translates to $10,000 cash.

Overall, the graphics of the game is good, so is the background music when the reels spin. One could find the Mayan Princess Slot game in any of the Microgaming casinos.
