5 Ages of Gold Home of the Mayans
5 Ages of Gold slot game immerses you deep in the South American jungle which was home to the ancient Mayan civilisation. The 5-reels and 243 ways to win slot incorporate a coppery coloured tone into the artwork affecting both the background and reels.
The symbols include a sculpture of a Mayan ruler, birds, frog and ear of corn for the high-paying side and the nine through to ace card symbols for the low-paying side. The soundtrack complements the artwork nicely as do the sporadic sounds of birds and other wildlife.
Wilds & The Wild Bonus Feature
The wild symbol might appear on the second to fourth reels and substitute for all the other symbols except for the scatter. During the main game if a wild appears on the third reel, then the Wild Bonus Feature may be triggered.
The bonus can award a cash prize of up to 50x total bet or may grant access to the free games feature.
Free Games Feature + Wild Multiplier
In 5 Ages of Gold slot game a sun scatter symbol will award 5x, 10x or 50x total bet in sets of 3, 4 or 5 from left to right. These scatters will also trigger the free games feature with five options:
- 2x/3x/5x wild multiplier + 25 free spins
- 3x/5x/8x wild multiplier + 20 free spins
- 5x/8x/10x wild multiplier + 15 free spins
- 8x/10x/15x wild multiplier + 13 free spins
- 10x/15x/30x wild multiplier + 10 free spins
Finally, the free spins can be re-triggered.
5 Ages of Gold Mayan Treasure
5 Ages of Gold slot can be played with wagers ranging from 0.30 to 300 and has an RTP of 96.12%. The game is optimised for desktop and mobile/tablet platforms, but for the latter, you’ll need an Android or iOS device.
We found the ways to win payouts to be a little underwhelming with a maximum of 33.3x total bet during regular games. It’s only with the help of the free spins, and more specifically the 30x wild multiplier that you might ever reach anywhere close to 1,000x total bet.
What this means is that you’ll need to trigger the free spins, which can take a while depending on your luck, and select the ten free spins option. Making the free spins slightly more challenging to trigger is that the scatters must appear consecutively from left to right and starting from the first reel rather than on any position as is more typical.
Fortunately, you have the bonus feature in the main game to help you collect Mayan treasure as it can pay up to 50x total bet and although you shouldn’t hold your breath for the top payout, the feature does trigger often enough to make a difference.
