If you have an interest in ancient civilizations, you might want to take a look at the latest release by Red Tiger Gaming. The game is called Yucatan's Mystery and will take you on a mysterious journey through the jungle. It has 5 reels, 4 rows, and 30 ways to land a winning combo. The game offers us some standard but still exciting features that are surely worth trying out.
The theme used here is common in the industry, so don’t hope to see anything new. The provider did a great job at the design of everything and made the game somewhat stand out from the rest of them. You are looking at a pretty regular game that would be perfect if you are just looking for a change of scenery.
The main scene of events takes place at a temple in the middle of the jungle with a small river passing through the middle. The reels are surrounded by colorful totems that are a ritual thing characteristic for Mayan civilizations. The provider did a great job of showing a part of their culture through the design of this game. The soundtrack is quite energetic with some sound effects of different jungle animals contributing to the theme a lot.
The symbols are the most interesting part when it comes to the appearance of this game. The lower-paid ones are represented by the regular colorful royals. The higher-paid ones include stone carvings, a gold, and a blue mask, and the princess as the most rewarding symbol. The game does not offer a wild symbol, but therefore has a special mystery symbol that appears as a gold coin. The scatter symbol appears as a pyramid.
The volatility of the game is set at high which definitely promises an unpredictable playtime. The betting range could have been wider. The minimum is set at 0,10 and the maximum at 20 coins per spin. The payouts on the other hand should manage to satisfy, even though the game has a just below the average 95,75% RTP. The maximum payout the game has to offer is 4284 times the stake in a single spin, which is quite impressive.
The features of the game are quite unique thanks to the fact that the provider decided to not include a regular wild symbol. Instead, the game offers the mystery symbol that turns into another symbol in hopes of creating a winning combination. If more than one symbol is present on the reels, they all turn into the same one raising the chances of scoring amazing winning combos. All of this takes a while raising the anticipation in the player for what is about to happen.
The game also offers us a scatter symbol and landing three of them on the reels will reward you with 10 free spins. This is where things get interesting and extremely unpredictable as a giant 2x2 blue mystery coin floats around the grid and changes positions on every spin. It gets activated every time another mystery symbol lands on the reels. It then brakes into a bunch of mystery symbols all around the grid, that then turn into the same symbol awarding an amazing prize.
That is not the best part, as every scatter symbol that lands on the reels awards a random number of additional free spins. Not only that, but it also turns into a giant mystery symbol that can be large enough to cover the entire grid meaning unbelievable payouts.
Welcome to the Jungle Paradise
Overall the game is quite a good one and is definitely nice to try out for a change. The payouts are surprisingly very decent and will satisfy most players. Some might worry about the RTP but oddly enough it does not seem to work badly. The game has a pretty interesting enchanted look which will appeal to many players out there.
