Mayana is played on a 3×3 grid and has 27 to 243 ways to win. Powered by Quickspin, this Mayan themed offering can be played from 25p to £100 a spin on all devices including iOS and Android. Every win gives you a free respin with the grid expanding to a 3×5 one as well as sticky symbols and multipliers up to 20x.
Visually, Mayana has cartoon style graphics and is set in the Mayan forest where you hope you find Mayan gold – symbols on the reels include 4 different coloured gemstones as well as 4 Mayan animal masks. The red, devil-like symbol is the most valuable giving you 6 times your stake for 5 in view.
The game begins on a 3×3 grid where you have 27 ways to win – you can form winning combinations when you get matching symbols in any position on 3 or more adjacent reels. When you do this, you will trigger the Respin feature. For the 1st respin, the winning symbols lock in place with the reel grid opening up – any wins here are subject to a 1x multiplier.
Then you will get a 2nd respin – the additional winning symbols from respin 1 are also lock and you play on a 2, 3, 3, 3, 2 grid with 108 ways to win. All wins in this respin are subject to a 2x multiplier.
If you’re lucky enough to win again, respin 3 is played when the winning symbols once again locked in place – the reel grid opens to 3, 3, 3, 3, 3. More importantly, your wins will be subject to a 3x multiplier.
Look out for the Mucha Mayana feature which can be randomly triggered on the 3rd respin – this can increase the multiplier from between 4x and 20x!
Mayana is a fast-paced slot which can be rewarding on each winning spin due to the respins and the multipliers – the key to winning big is getting the expanded grid set where the random multiplier can reach 20x. I found it to be a medium variance offering with maximum wins of up to 750 times your stake on each spin. It’s a decent addition to the Quickspin portfolio but I do prefer offerings such as Sticky Bandits and the volatile Spinions Beach Party.
