Mayan Marvels is clearly an attempt to by nektan to latch on to the success of NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest. Yet Mayan Marvels lacks the features and bonus rounds compared to the slot that it is trying to emulate. But this is because this nektan slot was designed with mobile players in mind. It has been designed to be compact, smart and easy to play on a mobile. When testing playing Mayan Marvels I played it on both a mobile and desktop and the lack of features make it a bit dull to keep playing on a desktop computer. In fact, this slot lacks a lot of features and bonus rounds and is simply simple. There are 5×3 reels and you hit and away you go. There no video bonus rounds to play, just a wild symbol and free spins mode to enter. But this is what makes it work so well on a mobile. I’ll be honest and say that perhaps I’m a little biased as within my first few spins I had a decent win, which always helps. But apart from that, I put it all back in in an attempt to test out the free spins feature which took an age to trigger – not to mention all my winnings!
Mayan Marvels is a 15 line slot and has a minimum stake of 0.01p per line. This makes it ideal if you’re a slots player on a tighter budget as you can play 15 lines of 0.15p. The maximum stake of those who like who bet a bit bigger is £15.00 with £1.00 being the max you can stake. I’d be surprised to see anyone playing this slot long enough to spend that much on it, as the lack of features make this one to be not much more than a slot to kill time playing.
The features found on Mayan Marvels is a wild symbol and free spins bonus round as mentioned earlier. The wild symbol works the same way as all other wild symbols and will complete a winning like. This will work with all symbols except the free spins symbol. To trigger the free spins round you’ll need a minimum of 3 free spins symbols. Once you collect 3 free spin symbols you will be awarded 30 free spins. Additional free spins can be won while in the free spins mode.
Final summary for this mayan marvels slot review. On a mobile this is a good game to play. Its simple, works well and looks decent. But I feel that this is only a good game to play to kill a bit of time with and see what happens. There are just not enough features to want to make you keep on spinning the reels over and over, nor is there enough to keep you returning to play this one.
