Mayan Queen by RTG
Mayan Queen is a pretty online slot that is very similar in many ways to other RTG online slots. Basically the skin is different but the structure is the same. Mayan Queen has five reels and twenty five optional paylines.
The wagering amounts are quite wide, and range from 0.01 up to 5 for coin sizes and a maximum bet of 25 coins.
The amount of lines played is adjustable, but each line can be played for a fixed amount of one coin. This opens the game up to players of all budgets as they can create the betting environment that suits them the best. Mayan Queen does not have progressive jackpots, but the standing ones are good enough to appeal to players of all experiences. Compared to other available games online however, Mayan Queen will not keep players playing for hours.
The graphics in Mayan Queen are pretty and colourful. RGT seems to have a particular style for a particular kind of online slot, and Mayan Queen falls squarely into that. Full of colours, the graphics are done in drawing style but with a realistic touch. They are detailed enough to keep you interested, and the animations are ok, but the thrill will wear off quite quickly. Mayan Queen’s sound track is also not particularly inspired, with the usual beeps and plonks of a slot machine as your only company until you hit the free spins round.
The theme for Mayan Queen is quite obviously one of treasure hunting in a South American jungle for Mayan gold. The Mayans lived about 1000 years ago until they were wiped out by Europeans. Myths still persists however that they had a hidden city made entirely of gold somewhere in the jungle. Mayan Queen plays rather vaguely on that myth.
All the symbols in Mayan Queen are theme based, which makes a nice change from the poker card ones that are so often found in online slots. We have a jaguar, a macaw, various pieces of jewellery, an urn, a dagger and a Mayan mask. The highest paying base symbol is the Mayan Temple or pyramid. This pays out the standing jackpot of 15 000 coins, but that could be doubled if the combinations includes the Mayan Queen wild.
The Mayan Queen is the games wild symbol, and she will appear stacked. This means that she will take up space on a number of lines on the same reel. She does only appear on the third reel however. The wild will take the place of all other symbols in the game, including the scatter and also carries a 2x multiplier.
The scatter symbol in Mayan Queen is a green emerald. This symbol will not only trigger free spins if three or more of it are found, but it also carries scatter wins for only two. This symbol can be found anywhere on the reels and does not have to be in any order to pay out. Three or more will give you six free spin, during which time the Mayan Queen wild takes up the entire third reel. These free spins can be retriggered during the round.
