Book of Maya
Book of Maya Novomatic Game
Unless you were around in the heyday of fruit themed slot games, the chances are that when you think of Novomatic, the first game that comes to mind is Book of Ra, or perhaps its slightly tweaked successor, Book of Ra Deluxe. By not capitalising on that kind of popularity, Novomatic would essentially be leaving money on the table and that’s not how they operate! Instead, they’ve taken our intrepid explorer from the Egyptian catacombs to the jungles of South America for a whole new adventure and it’s all presented with high quality on Book of Maya.
Standard gaming action is exactly that and anyone with experience of this style of Novomatic slot game will have absolutely no trouble getting things up and running. Just as on Book of Ra, players will be looking for a combination of themed icons and playing card symbols to form prizes, with ten win lines being the order of the day. One thing to bear in mind is that this game makes use of an extra bet too, and you’ll need to shell this one out on each spin in order to be in with a chance of hitting the free spins bonus round.
The Book of Maya
One of the driving factors behind all of the “Book” games from Novomatic is that the main symbol serves as both a wild and as a scatter, and that continues to be the case here. Not only will it substitute in for any other symbol on the board, but three in view at the same time will trigger the free spins bonus, just as long as you’ve included the aforementioned extra bet in your stake. Armed with ten free spins, players will also benefit from one symbol, selected at random, which will cover the entire reel by expanding each and every time it lands. This is where the extra bet comes into play too, as any spin that sees an expanding wild coming into play will award a further respin, with that wild reel held in place.
The action is rounded off in true Novomatic fashion with a gamble game, which becomes available every time a win lands. You can collect the prize, or take a shot at doubling it, simply by guessing whether the flashing card in the middle of the screen will turn out to be red or black. Succeed and you can guess again, but an incorrect attempt will forfeit the prize and see players taken back to the main game. All in all, it’s more great Novomatic action that will appeal to the same crowd as Book of Ra. That’s a pretty big crowd to say the least and you can get right into the action on this game instantly by heading to one of the great gaming brands in the sidebar.
