This slot was release February 23, 2022 by WGS. Wage Gaming System has been releasing some really nice slots and they did a good job with this one.
Based predominantly on the theme and symbols of the Mayan culture in a jungle setting. Often when you think of the Mayans you think of an old culture that dates back to around 2600 B.C. They became more prominent approximately 250 A.D. in the jungles of southern Mexico, Guatemala, northern Belize and western Honduras.
The slot symbols and even the background music fit the game extremely well. Game board of the slot takes place in front of a Mayan Temple deep in the heart of the jungle.

The scatters and wilds are easily determined. The silver wild symbol appears on reels 2, 3 an 4 only and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. The scatter symbol depicts a Mayan shield.

Additionally, one of the 4 major symbols is randomly chosen as the wild during the round. When you land a wild during the free spins round, the symbol will transition on the entire reel to increase your wins. There will be no doubt once the special wild is picked as it will show at the top during the round.

Adjusting the Bet Amounts
Mayan Lost Treasures has a fixed 10 paylines, but you change the bet amount by adjusting the amount bet per line. This is adjustable from $0.01 per line up to $5.00 per line. Some casinos have adjusted this to allow up to $10.00 per line but the most common setting is $5 which is $50.00 per spin.
Generous RTP Slot
This slot does have a fairly generous rtp even at a 10 line game. The average return to player is at 96% which is not bad for an easy to play game.
Verdict on the Mayan Lost Treasures Slot
We liked this game as a final verdict. Often we prefer video slots with more paylines but the cascading reels on wins did add what we feel is a nice addition for increasing wins. Also the extra pick of making one of the regular symbols wild during free spins helped a lot on wins. We also saw a few wins that were considerably larger due to the chosen wild transitioning on the entire reel.
The only thing we think could be improved is allowing a choice on the number of auto spins. Often we use the auto feature and it is nice to have control over how many spins will take place before a pause.
Over all a decent return and a slot we recommend you try next time you pay at a casino that offers WGS slots.
