Mayan Magic Wildfire Slot Review
It’s familiar territory for the Casino Gorilla as he returns to the jungle to check out the new Mayan Magic Wildfire slot from Nolimit City. This game is by no means the first to venture into the deepest, darkest jungles in search of slot gaming success. Nor is it the first to use the legendary ancient Mayan civilisation as an inspiration. The question is whether the Swedish gaming providers – relative newcomers to the online slots market – have created a game which can keep pace with the best of those existing slots. Released in June 2019 it is much too early to know whether this game will stand the test of time, but the Casino Gorilla intends to discover if this jungle slot is a swinger or a stinker.

Nolimit City are not trying to reinvent the wheel with this Mayan-themed slot, but some bonus features do manage to separate this one from many similar titles. The multi-coloured graphics certainly stand out, with images of finely adorned Mayan people and sacred animals like the snake and puma. This is a 5 x 3 reel slot game with a not-too-generous 10 paylines, although the good news is that they pay out in both directions.
How to Play
Mayan Magic Wildfire is one of those games that allows for a very wide range of bet levels, so make sure you adjust your per spin bet to between 10p and £100 according to your requirements. Clicking the lightning bolt symbol activates the max bet, so be careful! The action takes place in front of a beautiful tropical waterfall, and you click the spin button to try to find at least 3 matching symbols along a payline from left to right or vice-versa. The atmospheric jungle mood music really takes the Casino Gorilla back to his younger days!
Special Features of Mayan Magic Wildfire
Mayan Magic Wildfire really comes into its own when it reveals its special features. This is where the game comes to life and differentiates itself from other slots with similar themes. There are three special features in total, each of which can appear randomly on any spin of the reels. The first of these is the Mayan Wilds feature, which is activated when you land a wild symbol in the centre position of the middle reel. This remains stick for the next spin, and if further wilds are revealed then both are sticky and another respin takes place. This continues for as long as wilds appear, with multiplier increasing x1 for every three wild symbols on the reels.
The Mystery Wild feature can randomly turn the symbol on the centre square on the middle reel into a wild symbol, thereby activating the Mayan Wilds feature. When that same symbol shows up again it automatically turns to a wild. The Mystery Sync feature can also randomly appear on any spin. This one synchronises the symbols on the middle three reels to give players a better chance of a win.
The atmospheric sounds of the jungle waterfall and the pan pipes transports players into the heart of the South American rain forest. Stunning visuals make this game a treat for the eyes, while the various bonus features add an extra dimension. When you know that any spin of the reels can reveal a new bonus feature it adds an edge of excitement to gameplay. The Casino Gorilla is not sure that this game is destined to become an all-time classic, but it is certainly a fun way to pass the time. Mayan Magic Wildfire gets the big hairy thumbs up from our resident reviewer, and not just because it reminded him of home!
