5 Ages of Gold has been created by Playtech and comes from their Geco studio. With 5 reels and 243 ways to win, this Mayan themed slot can be played from 30p to £300 a spin on all devices. It comes with a random Wild Bonus feature where cash prizes or entry to the Free Games feature can be granted. In the latter, you have 5 options with up to 50 free spins available or wild multipliers up to 30x.
From the Geco studio, 5 Ages of Gold is rather basic visually – with a Mayan jungle in the background, symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as corn, frogs, turtles, parrots and Mayan headpieces. The latter is the most rewarding with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 1.6, 3.33 or 33.33 times your total stake.
The totem head is the wild which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter – it appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. When the wild appears on the middle reel during the base game, it can randomly trigger the Wild Bonus feature. You will then simply win a cash prize up to 50 times your stake or entry into the Free Games feature.
The sundial is the scatter with 3, 4 or 5 giving you 5, 10 or 50 times your stake – if you get 3 or more appearing from left to right (starting from reel 1), you will enter the Free Games feature. You then have 5 choices which offer various free spins and multipliers:
- 25 free spins with a 2x, 3x or 5x wild multiplier
- 20 free spins with a 3x, 5x or 8x wild multiplier
- 15 free spins with a 5x, 8x or 10x wild multiplier
- 13 free spins with an 8x, 10x or 15x wild multiplier
- 10 free spins with a 10x, 15x or 30x wild multiplier
During the feature, look out for the scatter as 3 or more (starting from reel 1) will retrigger the feature to give you an extra feature choice – you could play with up to 50 free spins. Personally, I would opt for the biggest wild multipliers – the potential 30x wild multiplier is too big to ignore.
If you look at the most valuable symbol (the Mayan headpiece), a screen full of them will give you 1,000 times your stake. If you add in the potential 30x multiplier, it would result in 30,000 times stake payouts! 5 Ages of Gold is a high variance slot – it may not look as good as other Playtech productions but can pack quite the punch. All that’s left for you to do is find the hidden treasures left behind by the deities.
