First up, Rise of Maya™ offers online slots players in Canada the chance of triggering 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins, when 3, 4 or 5 respective Serpent Wilds appear on the screen. When the Free Spins feature kicks off, the reels momentarily disappear to display a huge mask backdrop that opens up to reveal a staircase leading to the slot’s hidden treasure chamber. During the Free Spins round, the reels on which the initial triggering Wilds landed will become hot, and should any Wilds land on these Hot Reels during this feature, they’ll turn into Serpent Stacks. Plus, Wilds landing on any non-activated reel will turn it into a Hot Reel too and add 2 extra Free Spins.
Located to the left of the screen is the Bonus Bet button, which you can activate, at double the cost of your initial bet, to increase your chances of triggering a Free Spins round. When the Bonus Bet feature is turned on, and two or more Scatters or Wilds appear on the reels, it will trigger a Second Chance Scatter™ Re-Spin of the empty reels to boost your odds of enjoying Free Spins. And don’t despair when you have a losing spin, as you could possible see a random Scatter Nudge move a Serpent Wild or Scatter onto a reel.
