Playtech is one of the leading casino software game developers in the world. The company has expanded its presence in recent times by acquiring a number of small studios which has helped boost its creative talent. Geco Studios is one of those acquisitions and the firm behind the latest slot released called 5 Ages of Gold.
The slot is based on the mythology of the Mayas and has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. This game features some very slick bonuses and will keep players engaged throughout.
When players start this game they are greeted by a view of the Mayan jungle and the five reels. The symbols are highly stylized and can be a bit confusing at first.
However, players will be able to understand them better as the game progresses. There are several low-value symbols. These come in the form of the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards. The more valuable symbols are corn, frogs, turtles, parrots and Mayan headpieces. The headpieces give out the biggest reward with five on a payline giving 33.33 times the original stake.
The game also has a wild symbol. This substitutes for all the other symbols except for the scatter. Players can randomly activate the Wild Bonus feature. Players can get either 50 times their original stake or an entry into the Free Games Feature.
The scatter symbol is important because it will give players the chance to win big. The scatter symbol is a sundial and if five of them line up, players get 50 times their stake. Besides this, players can trigger the feature with three symbols lining up.
Players will then get the chance to pick what free game bonus they like. There are five choices. One is 25 free spins with a 2x, 3x or 5x wild multiplier. Next, there is the 20 free spins with a 3x, 5x or 8x wild multiplier. Another choice is 15 free spins with a 5x, 8x or 10x wild multiplier. The next one is 13 free spins with an 8x, 10x or 15x wild multiplier. Finally, there is the 10 free spins with a 10x, 15x or 30x wild multiplier.
The less free spins players get, the bigger their multiplier. Players can also get the chance to retrigger the Free Games feature. They can potentially get up to 50 free spins. Players have a chance of winning big if they go for high multipliers but there are more chances with the low multipliers.
