Brave the ancient Mayan jungles and discover treasures within fabled lost cities. Mayan Stackways by Hacksaw Gaming debuts its brand new innovative feature called the Stackways. Land these ingenious symbols on your reels and unlock up to 100,000 ways to win. With luck as your faithful ally, you might find yourself basking in the glow of the highly sought-after Golden Opportunity bonus. This exciting variation is guaranteed to multiply your bet by at least 500 times!

Betting Options and Bonus Features

Mayan Stackways uses a win-all-ways pay system. Winning combinations are generated by landing 3 or more matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from the left. High-value symbols can pay between 2x and 4x your stake for five-of-a-kind wins. Although there are no Wild symbols, the game offers several intricate features which enhance the gameplay.

One special feature is Hacksaw Gaming’s new Stackways mechanic, which can stack between 2 and 10 matching symbols onto the reel or reels it lands on. This exciting innovation increases the number of win ways proportionately. Depending on the combination, you can unlock up to 100,000 ways to win! The stacking only occurs when a win is guaranteed, further increasing the suspense and excitement every time a player spins.

The Stack Spins Bonus Round adds an extra layer of play. Triggered by landing 3 Skull Scatter symbols, this awards 10 free spins as well as a higher chance of landing Stackways symbols on the reels. Additionally, there is a Reel Activator symbol that can activate reels during this bonus round. Once activated, reels guarantee to land Stackways symbols on every spin for the remainder of the round. This feature also awards the player with extra spins whenever 3 Skull Scatters land on the same free spin.

Next is the Mayan Gold Bonus Round, which triggers from 4 Skull Scatter symbols. In this round, your objective is to land blanks and Coin symbols. Each Coin symbol contributes its value to a reel counter above it. There are 3 different levels of coins: bronze, silver, and gold, which add value to the counter. You’ll also be able to land an X Multiplier symbol that boosts the current reel counter value, dramatically increasing the opportunity for a larger win.

A Golden Opportunity is another variation of the Mayan Gold feature which you’ll be able to trigger from landing 5 Skull Scatters. Each reel starts at a value of 50, promising a bigger prize pool for the winners. It's worth noting that this version of the bonus could only be triggered organically during the base game. It is not available as a Bonus Buy option.

Speaking of Bonus Buy, here are the options Hacksaw Gaming provides for Mayan Stackways

Each of the options has its volatility and RTP percentages, catering to a wide variety of preferences:

  • BonusHunt FeatureSpins: For 3x your stake, be 5 times more likely to trigger a Free Spins bonus game.
  • StackWays FeatureSpins: For 40x your stake each spin is guaranteed to have at least 2 Stackways symbols.
  • Stack Spins Bonus: Pay 110x your stake to receive 3 Skull Scatters.
  • Mayan Gold: Pay 200x your to receive 4 Skull Scatters.

Roshtein’s Take

Super interesting feature by Hacksaw! It's somewhat similar to No Limit City’s xWays/xSplit thing but in a more straightforward way. It's less randomized since you get an assigned number along with the Stackways symbol right away. This way you know what you’re getting from the get-go, which eliminates time wasted on speculation and makes more room for excitement. A strong start for a brand new feature in its slot debut! Excited to see more things from Hacksaw in this series.
