According to Mayan mythology the world was supposed to end on December 21, 2012. Doomsday parties were held, people had a great time but nothing like the end of the world happened. Descendants of the ancient Mayans explained that 21.12.12 was not really meant to be the end of the world, but the end of an era in the Mayan calendar. The next era has begun on December 22. In the early days of this new era, CasinoAdvisor recommends and reviews two Mayan themed online slot games.

Mayan Queen is the online slot game from the software provider Realtime Gaming. The Mayan Queen is the wild symbol. It can appear only on reel 3 and it does not award line payouts, but it makes up for these drawbacks by offering a number of other benefits. It substitutes for the scatter symbol, which is rare in online slots. It doubles payouts, including scatter payouts, when it appears in winning combinations. But the best of all is that the Mayan Queen expands across all rows in a regal and awesome animation. The emerald is the scatter symbol. It awards scatter payouts when two or more appear anywhere on the reels. The scatter payouts are multiplied by the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins bonus round. Six free spins are awarded, which can be retriggered. The Mayan Queen appears expanded on reel 3 during all free spins. The rest of the symbols are taken from Mayan culture and represent ornaments and artifacts of that ancient civilization. They also include animals like the cheetah and snake that figured prominently in Mayan culture. The largest line payout of 15,000 coins is offered by the Mayan pyramid temple. If the winning combination of five pyramid symbols is made with the help of the wild then the payout goes to a whopping 30,000 coins. Mayan Queen offers the Realtime Gaming randomly triggered progressive jackpot as well. Mayan Queen can be played at all Realtime Gaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Club World, Slots Jungle and Silver Oak.

The software provider Microgaming offers a slot game titled Mayan Princess at its online casinos. Mayan Princess has similar symbols because the theme is the same. The Mayan Princess logo is the wild symbol and it also offers the largest line payout of 5,000 coins. The symbols include the Mayan princess and the warrior. The beasts include cheetah, bird and crocodile. Corn and peppers, which formed an important constituent of the Mayan diet, are also included. Mayan emblems also appear on the reels. The pyramid temple triggers the free spins bonus round when it appears on any position on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously. The player is awarded from 10 to 20 free spins with 2x multiplier. The free spins can be retriggered. Microgaming is known for creating online slots with visual appeal and in Mayan Princess the win animations are superb. The Mayan princess breaks into a tribal dance. And the warrior into a war dance. The corn is seen being pounded into flour and the crocodile snaps its jaws. The sun rises from behind the pyramid to announce the free spins. Mayan Princess can be played at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends All Slots, River Belle, Platinum Play and Golden Riviera.
