Enter the secret Mayan world with the game featuring the reels set against a backdrop depicting a table with skulls, flies, candles and masks. The reels are home to high-paying totems and female gods and low-value icons represented by a male god, a fearsome serpent, monkey and a bird. The pyramid stands for Wild while Scatter is depicted as the totem with feathers on a purple backdrop. Giant Bonus is another special symbol that triggers the Bonus Slot round awarding prizes and free spins.
How to Play
The game is played at 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 paylines. You can wager between $0.01 and $2.50 per line, meaning that your bet can be anywhere between $0.40 and $100 per spin.

It takes 3 or more symbols of a kind on a payline left to right to create a winning combination.
After ever winning spin, you can use the Gamble feature to double your payouts.
The game allows you to increase the speed of the reels and adjust the game’s volatility if you wish so.
Strategy & Tips
During the base game, all symbols can appear on the reels as Giant symbols consisting of 2x2 or 3x3 icons. They don’t have to be fully visible to create a winning combination.
Another big symbol that can appear on the reels is Giant Bonus. Once it lands fully or partially on the grid, it triggers the Bonus Slot feature. The Bonus Slot symbols spin independently and award multipliers that apply to the triggering bet. If 3 Scatters show up during the bonus round, they will trigger free games.
When 3 or more Scatters hit the reels, 10 free spins are granted. Before free games start, one of the symbols will be randomly selected to act as Bonus. It expands to cover the reel completely and pays regardless of its position.
During free games, you will benefit from Giant Wild that shows up on the three central reels only and replaces all symbols bar Giant Bonus. Besides Giant Bonus and Giant Wild, only four highest paying icons can appear as Giant symbols during free games.
There is a lot going on in Mayan Ritual, but that should not bother you as the game plays seamlessly on mobile devices as well. Thanks to the Energy Saving Mode, you can play it as long as your bankroll allows you to.
