Yucatan is an exciting video slot machine from Merkur based on the Maya culture, commonly and incorrectly referred to as the Mayan culture. Maya is the term for the culture and people, whereas Mayan is the language they speak. However, nouns and adjectives aside, the Maya culture remains fascinating for many people around the world for their intriguing cultural practices, magnificent art and stunning architecture. The developer has chosen to incorporate the symbology of this impressive civilisation into their game Yucatan, which takes its name from the peninsula in south-eastern Mexico. Yucatan is one of 150 titles produced by the German gaming company, which is no newcomer to the world of gaming with over 50 years of experience. The game can be played on any desktop device or mobile and tablet, and as such can be played anytime and anywhere.
This five-reel Merkur video slot game boasts an impressive maximum 50 paylines which you may add or detract in multiples of ten, playing a minimum of one pay line. As would be expected, your bet per line can be altered - the minimum bet per line is £0.01 and the maximum is set at £20.00. The basic symbols include letters, numbers and the Maya calendar, all creating an authentic feel, and appropriate colours and textures have been incorporated to add to the historical accuracy.
The wild symbol is a Maya Princess, and when drawn she substitutes for any symbol with the exception of the Maya calendar symbol. A scatter symbol is also utilised which is the Maya calendar symbol and wins independently of its position on the reel. In addition to a cash win, getting three, four or five scatter symbols wins you free games. Three scatter symbols give ten free games, four give 25 and five give a massive 100 free games.
There are additional extras to the game. On achieving winning lines, you are presented with three options displayed in the bottom middle of the screen. The options are: collect your winnings, take the card gamble or take the ladder gamble. Selecting collect will simply add your winnings for the paylines to your total and allow you to spin again. Choosing to take the card gamble presents you with a view of a pack of cards with one face up.
You simply indicate whether you think the next card will be black or red. This step can be repeated if you are successful until a maximum of 140, or the currency equivalent, is reached. If you select the ladder gamble, you are presented with a ladder indicating multiples of currency doubling at each step. Again, you may continue to press the gamble button to climb the ladder and achieve greater rewards to a maximum of 140. During this additional gameplay, you are presented with the options to collect winnings at any point or to collect half.If you choose the latter, half of your winnings will be banked before you continue.
All together, Yucatan will keep you entertained with its diverse play options, just like our other great free slots.
