Ainsworth's Mayan Gold slot has a brilliant color scheme of gold and black, giving players the feeling of wealth and opulence. Based on the theme of Mayan culture and treasure hunting, the slot has an unusual, though cluttered, game design. The first two reels have three rows and the next three reels have four rows. The reels feature thematic symbols of Mayan chiefs, flowers, colorful gems, and high-value card symbols.
Mayan Gold slot offers 100 ways to win. To start spinning the reels, you must first place a bet. To place a bet, you must click on the little settings symbol at the bottom left of the slot's play area. You will then be taken to a screen, where you can turn the sound volume on/off by clicking on the sound volume icon. You can also activate the required number of paylines and choose from betting options that range from 0.01 to 100.00. To learn more about the slot, you must click on the information symbol.
The slot has an autoplay feature that allows you to set the reels to play automatically for up to 25 times.
If you place the max bet, you can win quite a pile of coins by landing combinations of thematic symbols and high-value card symbols across the reels. You can further add to your pile of winnings by activating the free spins feature.
If you land at least three scatter symbols anywhere on reels, you will receive 8 free games. The first and second reels will expand to nine positions and the third, fourth, and fifth reels will expand to twelve positions. During the free spins bonus round, the Dollar symbol will appear only on the first and second reels. If you land at least three Dollar scatter symbols on the first and second reels during the free spins bonus round, you will get five extra free spins.
The Green Whopper Wild symbol appears only on the fourth and fifth reels during the free spins round. The wild symbol will substitute for all symbols except the Whopper Multiplier symbol, the Green Whopper Wild symbol, the x3 Wild symbol, the x2 Wild symbol, the Dollar symbol, and the Cash Rose symbol. If you land the Whopper Multiplier on the third reel during a free spin, all the symbols on the third reel will be replaced by x3 Wild symbols or x2 Wild symbols.
When the free spins are being played, the x2 Wild symbols and the x3 Wild symbols will substitute for all symbols except the wild symbol, the Cash Rose symbol, the Dollar symbol, and the Green Whopper Wild symbol. If your winning combination has an x2 Wild symbol or x3 Wild symbol, your prize for that combination will be multiplied by x2 or x3, respectively.
When the free spins are in progress, a new Cash Rose symbol appears on the first and second reels. If you are lucky enough to land it, it will continue to appear on the same position for the rest of the free spins feature. The Cash Rose symbol is capable of revealing other feature symbols except the x2 Wild symbol, the x3 Wild symbol, the Wild symbol, the Green Whopper Wild symbol, and the Whopper Multiplier symbol.
Further, if you land six or more Dollar symbols, you will receive a payout equal to that associated with a combination of five scatter symbols.
During the free spins bonus round, a separate pay table called the feature pay table is brought into play.

In the first place, the color scheme of Ainsworth's Mayan Gold slot is a bit overdone. There is just too much gold in it, making the slot appear gaudy instead of classy. Besides, the reels are too narrow and crowded and the game information uses small fonts that make it very difficult to read.
As far as bonus features are concerned, the slot is literally overloaded with feature symbols, but hardly any bonus features. There is a wild symbol and a scatter symbol and the usual bunch of free spins with multiplies and extra symbols. There is nothing to stop you from spinning the reels of Mayan Gold slot, but you are bound to get disappointed especially if you are used to playing highly innovative, feature rich, and well-designed slots.
