If you’re a fan of NetEnt slots, and online slots with an Ancient Maya/Mayan Civilization theme, and if you live in South Africa, then one of the hottest new online slots that I can recommend keeping an eye out for this week is the new Rise of Maya online slot. This fun new game was released on desktop and mobile in February 2020, and it can now be found at several trusted South African online casinos such as Mansion Casino and Casino.com.
The game has 5 reels and 10 paylines, and players are treated to some fantastic in-play sound effects, authentic accompanying audio and sharp graphics. There are four different Wild Symbols on this game, and they are all depicted by the Gold Serpent God Symbols. You have the regular Wild Symbols and the Expanding Serpent Wild Symbols that can land on the reels during the Free Spins Bonus and normal play, and also Stacks of Serpent Symbols, but these symbols can only ever show up during the Free Spins Bonus.
On any lucky spin you will be playing to win up to 2,500x times your total stake, and some of the main features that you can look forward to are the Bonus Bet and Second Chance Scatter feature, the Scatter Nudge feature, and a Free Spins Bonus with Hot Reels. To increase your chances of gaining entry into the Free Spins Bonus, the best thing to do if you can afford it would be to play with the Bonus Bet switched ON.
Switching it on will instantly double your current total stake, and it means that you can take one spin of the reels from as little as 0.20 coins up to a maximum of 150.00 coins per spin. If you play with the Bonus Bet switched OFF, you can play from as little as 0.10 coins up to just 75.00 coins per spin. When switched off, you’ll just have to wait for the Free Spins Bonus to trigger in the traditional way (e.g. when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land on the reels at the same time).
If you enabled the Bonus Bet, extra Scatter/Wild Symbols will be added to the reels, and they can also now be NUDGED up or down into view. If just 2 Scatter Symbols happen to be in view, they will be held in place while the remaining the reels without Scatter Symbols will respin once for free. The main aim of this purchasable feature is to give you a second chance at trying to trigger the Free Spins Bonus.
In whichever way the Free Spins Bonus Round does eventually trigger for you, you’ll receive a guaranteed bonus of 15 Free Spins each time, and additional Free Spins (up to a maximum of 24) can also be retriggered during the bonus. To play on NetEnt’s new Rise of Maya slot right now, go to any of the trusted South African online casinos that I mentioned above (Casino.com or Mansion Casino). Similar games that I also think you’ll enjoy include 5 Ages of Gold, Mayana, Gonzo’s Quest, and Mayan Gods.
