NetEnt's latest slot release transports you inside of a Mayan temple dedicated to a blood-thirsty god.
But don't worry, you won't be sacrificed on the altar. Instead, spin the reels, for a chance to land one of FOUR different wild symbols, and unlock a free spins round with stacked wilds.

Rise of Maya Bonus Features
The Mayans performed many rituals to their gods, and inside of this temple, there's a hidden treasure room where you'll receive 10-20 free spins.
To trigger it you'll need to land at least three wild or scatter symbols on the same spin, and you can even combine them to reach the required number.
The reels where the special symbols landed on will turn into ‘hot reels' for the duration of the bonus feature, which is useful because anytime a serpent stacked wild lands on a hot reel, it will expand to fill up the whole reel.
Plus you can win more free spins during the bonus round.
Rise of Maya Symbols
There are four different types of wild symbols in Rise of Maya:
- Single serpent wild
- 2 x expanding serpent wilds – expands to fill up the reel it lands on
- Serpent stacks – only lands during the bonus feature
And of course, all wild symbols substitute for regular symbols to create winning combinations.
Rise of Maya Nudge
Sometimes lady luck is not on your side. If your spin was a no-win spin, i.e. no winning combinations were formed, then the scatter nudge feature may trigger randomly. When this occurs, the slot machine nudges a wild or scatter symbol onto the reels for you.

What NetEnt said about Rise of Maya
NetEnt's editorial team explained how they optimised the mobile version of the game:
Rise of Maya™ delivers a fantastic mobile version of the game. It offers the same fantastic experience as the desktop version. The game's UI has been expertly adapted to fit the mobile screen.
The spin wheel disappears from view when the reels are spinning. Settings and options likewise are filed away in a separate submenu.
This economical and clever use of space keeps the display clear and clutter free, while not sacrificing any of the game's functionality (all options that can be found in the desktop version are also in the mobile version). None of the entertainment has been sacrificed.
The mobile version is compatible with iOS and Android. As long as your device is running an updated OS, you should have no problems playing the game on virtually any smartphone or tablet. Go ahead and give the game a try!
