Multiple Wilds

Wilds are a common feature on slot machines. Their purpose is to substitute for normal symbols to improve your chances of getting a winning combination.

Rise of Maya has 4 types of Wild symbols – 1 Serpent Wild, 2 Expanding Serpent Wilds and Serpent Stakes.

The single wild and expanding wild can appear during the base game, but the stacks are reserved for the Rise of Maya Free Spins bonus.


Scatter symbols, as well as Wilds, are your ticket to Rise Of Maya’s Free Spins Mode.

Landing 3 of these icons will activate the game’s bonus and give you the chance to get a big win.

Scatter Nudge

Looking for a helping hand to turn a loss into a win? There’s a chance Rise Of Maya has just the ticket for you.

The Scatter Nudge feature randomly activates when you don’t get a win in the base game or Free Spins mode.

Free Spins With Hot Reels

What’s a slot game with a Free Spins mode? The answer is ‘a boring one’.

The mode in Rise of Maya is anything but boring we’re pleased to say.

To activate this bonus round, you need to collect 3 or more Wild or Scatter symbols.

The reels that pick up a wild symbol will become Hot Reels, meaning that Serpent Stack Wilds that land on them will expand to cover the entire reel!

You can earn extra Free Spins during the round by landing a Serpent Wild on an unactivated Hot Reel. This will award you with 2 more spins and will also activate the Hot Reel.

Bonus Bet: Second Chance Scatters + Respins

To enjoy this interesting feature, you’ll need to activate it during the base game.

What it does is doubles your stake and increase your chances of landing extra scatters and wilds and therefore triggering the Free Spins round. More risk/more reward.

You will also receive respins if you land 2 scatters or wilds, to give you another chance to land 3 and begin the Free Spins round.

Rise Of Maya Verdict

With a whole civilisation of features and a top prize of €500,000, it’s fair to say that Rise Of Maya brings a lot to the table. But is it really worth playing?

We say yes. The ability to customise your gameplay and to increase your odds of landing a Free Spins bonus round is an amazing feature and one that can lead to huge rewards.

The one downside with this game is that it has quite a low R.T.P, but that’s understandable for a High Volatility slot.
