The Mayan, Aztec, and ancient themes are not new to the scene, but what makes Mayan Eagle stand apart from the rest is the usage of the Nobleways mechanic (more on that later), rolling reels, multipliers, and more!
We have to say we were pretty impressed when Mayan Eagle came out with a 96.32% RTP (return to player). This makes it quite high, and coupled with the 15,625 paylines and a max jackpot of 13,000x your initial stake, this slot game promises to provide some of the highest returns!
One thing that does knock us back a bit is that feature aside, this is a high volatility game, so the chances of earning those potential high-profit wins is quite low. However, not trying is a definite loss, so why not go for it?
Mayan Eagle is a South American themed game with a 6×5 grid and 15,625 paylines. The grid looks like it has been carved out of a prehistoric boulder and is suspended behind a backdrop of ancient Mayan pyramids complete with a waterfall.
The exotic music takes us on a tropical outing as we pursue the max jackpot. Considering that the jackpot is quite high, the betting range is surprisingly low. Bets start at 0.2 and only go up to 20.
The graphics are clean but not anything we haven’t seen before. Unfortunately, the hit frequency of Mayan Eagle is at a lowly 37.6%, making it not only of high volatility but has a rating of very high. Be aware of that before you bet big!
The Nobleways mechanic is a fixed system of ways to win. In this case, it’s 15,625 ways, which is quite a bit. The way to win is the same as most other slots, requiring you to land 3 or more symbols of the same kind.

When wins occur, the rolling reels will trigger. The rolling reels will replace the winning symbols and continue spinning until there are no more winning combos. As for the wilds, they are rare and only appear on reels 2 to 5. They do help in the game, though, by offering more chances at lucrative gains.
The random mystery feature is quite helpful as well. It’s a random addition of 8 or more symbols, and they will all merge into one. Mayan Eagle also has free spins, but they aren’t of much help because they are difficult to activate. The scatters need to spell out M-A-Y-A and eventually lead to the progressive multiplier.
The very high volatility and the low hit rate of Mayan Eagle can deter many players. But if you think about it, what’s the fun in a slot game that is made too easy? The rewards it offers and pay ways are quite attractive, but you can’t get them if you don’t try.
The betting range is quite low, which means there is a lower risk of losing a ton of coin. Even the Nobelways mechanic doesn’t help that much, which leaves the theme as a bigger aspect to be enjoyed.

The tropical and exotic setting of Mayan Eagle is a big appeal of the game, and while it won’t offer you anything you haven’t experienced, it’s a good game to try out just for the high jackpot.
