Xibalba Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 243-7,776 ways to win

Stakes Range: 10p to £10 per spin

Max Win: 20,000 x stake per spin

RTP: 96.2%

The Xibalba slot begins with 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win. Being an All Ways Pays game as it’s known, winning combinations are created when you land 3 or more matching symbols on successive reels. The symbols can appear in any position, beginning from the leftmost reel of course.

Available to play from 10p to £10 per spin, you can choose your bet level when Xibalba loads. To change your stake, there’s a ‘Bet’ button below the reels which brings up all bet amounts. Next to this you will see a Lightning Bolt icon for Turbo Mode and an Autoplay function. Both these extras are not available to UK players.

The Xibalba RTP is 96.2% which is just above the 96% slots average. Highly volatile, there’s a hit frequency rate of 27.07% meaning over a quarter of spins will give you a winning outcome.

The maximum win per spin is 20,000 x your total stake. The bigger wins will be won during the free spins where there’s an only-increasing win multiplier.

High Value Symbol: Red Mask

Compatibility: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop

xibalba-slot-base-game

With a Mayan theme, the Xibalba slot is based on the underworld in Maya mythology which is ruled by the 12 demon lords, the gods of death. The story from Peter & Sons is that the roads to Xibalba are filled with deceit with the gods full of treacherous trickery. Only the hero twins can defeat them and unlock the hidden treasures.

Set deep in the jungle, symbols include 5 differently coloured low value squares. The higher value symbols are represented by black, white, green and red masks as well as a jaguar. The red mask is the most lucrative symbol giving you 0.5, 1 or 10 x your total stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

The dragon is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols. There’s also a growing wild and sun scatter which triggers the free spins.

Xibalba Bonus Features

The Xibalba slot comes with 4 bonus features. Every win gives you cascades with extra rows/ways to win and an increase win multiplier. With giant symbols and growing wilds also appearing, all these extras apply during the all-important Free Spins feature. The difference is that the win multiplier can only increase.

Cascades with Growing Falls feature

xabilba-slot-cascades-with-growing-falls-feature

When you land a winning combination, the Cascades with Growing Falls feature is triggered. The winning symbols are removed with new ones replacing them. A respin then follows. With each cascade, an extra row is added up to 6 rows per reel.

4, 5 or 6 rows will give you 1,024, 3,125 or 7,776 ways to win respectively. Furthermore and with every cascade, the progressive win multiplier increases by 1. The multiplier has no limits but resets once you don’t win anymore.

Finally, growing wilds can appear. These are not removed during cascades with all symbols appearing above them transforming into wilds.

Gigantor feature

The Gigantor feature triggered when 2 sun scatter symbols land on the 3 middle reels. A respin is awarded with the reels with the scatters on them holding and merging to create giant symbols of 2×2 in size. Another scatter will give you another respin with the 3 middle reels syncing to give you 3×3 giant symbols.

Free Spins feature

xibalba-slot-free-spins-feature

The Free Spins feature is played when 3 sun scatter symbols appear at the end of a sequence of cascades. It will take approximately 261 spins on average to trigger the feature.

With 15 free spins awarded, all the above features are also in play. This means cascades, growing wilds, giant symbols and the progressive win multiplier.

More importantly, the progressive win multiplier does not reset between free spins meaning it can only grow. If you land 3 sun scatters during a free spin, an extra 15 free spins will be won giving you 30 free spins in total.

Finally, there’s a Buy Free Spins feature. Access to the free spins will cost you 77 x your total stake. This option isn’t available to UK players due to UK Gambling Commission regulations.

Originality








The Xibalba slot is beautifully designed as you’d expect from a Peter & Sons release. With a unique take on the Mayan theme, you need successive wins/cascades to bring extra rows/ways to win into play as well as the progressive win multiplier.

With growing wilds and giant symbols to help, the bigger will come in the Free Spins feature. This is because all the base game features apply but the progressive win multiplier can only grow. This can lead to 20,000 x stake wins on each free spin if you’re lucky.

Overall, Xibalba is another superb offering from the up-and-coming provider which will surely appeal to many. I recommend you check out Hammer of Gods and Valkyries which offer 51,000 and 20,000 x stake max wins respectively.

If you like cascading wins with increasing multipliers, most Megaways slot games offer this (in their free spins features). Gonzo’s Quest Megaways by NetEnt offers this as well as a Mayan theme.

Pros
  • 10,000 x stake max wins
  • Superb twist on Mayan theme
  • Up to 7,776 ways to win + progressive win multiplier
Cons
  • Nothing unique in terms of features
