Yes, there may be many Maya-themed slot games out there, but we're not sure if any come in beautiful HD. Well, the team Viaden saw itself a market opportunity and created Maya Pyramid HD, an excellent slot that offers up 5 reels, 21 paylines, a number of interesting bonus features, and (naturally) a beautiful presentation.
It would be silly for a game with the abbreviation for "high definition" in its title to have a lackluster presentation. Maya Pyramid HD aptly follows this logic, offering up a presentational experience that is nearly flawless. The music - a nice, relaxing background jingle - may actually be the best element of the presentation. The effects are nothing to scoff at. Naturally, the graphics are excellent. Perhaps the only presentational element that could be slightly improved is the actual size of the slot interface. It is a little small, forcing gamers to squint a bit as the reels spin.
One could easily think that this game offers up as many bonuses as Mayan pyramid has layers. The first of the bunch is the expanding wild, which is represented by the stone figure. It only appears on the middle three reels. Three or more of the Mayan temples on a single payline will activate the "temple treasures" bonus game, a kind of pick-em bonus. Finally, there is a gamble feature on hand for you high-rollers out there. You know the drill by now: pick the correct suit to quadruple your winnings, pick the right color to double your winnings, or guess wrong and lose it all.
Playing Maya Pyramid HD is rather simple. From left to right, set the number of paylines (up to 21), the bet denomination (anywhere between .05 and .25), and then click the "spin" button. A "max bet" button is also available, as is an "autospin" function.
