Mayan Magic Wildfire
Travel to ancient Mesoamerica for an encounter with the Mayan culture on the slot from NoLimit City. The Mayan people are known to have been far ahead of any other civilization, developing elaborate cities with complex architecture and had advanced skills in astronomy, mathematics and art. It wasn’t until the Spanish invasion in the late 16th century that the last village surrendered. Their temples, artefacts and books are to this day vast troves of information for archaeologists.
NoLimit City took on the challenge to design a video slot that encompasses the spirit of the Mayan people. Very fittingly, the features are called Mayan Magic Wildfire that will lead to the Fire Spins and Mayan Mystery that will synchronize the three centre reels.
Mayan Magic Wildfire is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed lines, paying both ways from left to right and from right to left. Your expedition deep into Mayan territory on desktop or mobile starts at 0.10 credits and peaks at 100 credits per spin. The RTP of this medium variance game has yet to be confirmed but we estimate it to be in the region of 96%.
Open the game to find yourself in the midst of a lush jungle scene with a waterfall in the background. The frameless game window seems suspended from a stone structure that has at the middle the green gem which will play a vital role in one of the features. Elaborate graphics and rich colours dominate on the reels together with a tribal soundtrack that heightens the suspense.
At the low end are five gems in green, mint, blue, purple and red colours. They are followed by snakes and leopards on the medium level. The premium symbols are three Mayan warriors characters. There is also a wild symbol, appearing on the three centre reels only and substituting for all symbols.
Mayan Magic Wildfire Slot Features
The potential of this slot is unleashed in two features that can each lead to mega wins. The three middle reels are the main focus in both features. Watch out when the screen goes dark and fireflies start popping up as this is the moment where one of the two features can randomly trigger. Beware though that some appearances are just teasers.
- Mayan Mystery: the fireflies lay a ring of fire around the three centre reels and synchronize the pay symbols for the current spin to provide more potential to score a win.
- Mayan Wilds: the fireflies lay a smaller fire ring around the center position on reel three only. The symbol landing in the window will turn itself into a sticky wild and all other matching symbols in view on the centre reels into semi-sticky wilds. The game will trigger a number of Fire Spins according to the number of wilds on the screen after the transformation. The semi-sticky wilds will stay in place for the next spin before being spun away on the subsequent spin. Plus, all wilds are collected in the multiplier meter in the top right corner. For every two wilds, the win multiplier increases by one. Any further wilds landing will award one extra spin.
While we did not have all details about the payouts and the features as we were testing the BETA version of the game, Mayan Magic Wildfire impressed us with the intricate graphics and novel pay mechanics. The win potential seems to be around 2,500x your bet in the Fire Spins round when the multiplier increases to x3 or more. We will have exact details and also complete this review once we receive the final version of the game.
