Tuesday, June 7 2011 : Online casino adds a new game to its proprietary inventory
Slotland online casino, which develops its own unique online games, has announced the launch of Tikal Treasure, a new ancient Mayan-themed 5 reel, 25 pay-line offering with a variety of features and a six-figure jackpot.
Tikal was the capital of one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya, and Tikal Treasure mimics the distinctive carvings of the ancient temples, with ornate symbols from Mayan astrology, stone masks, sun gods and mystical Mayan cats on the reels.
The Wild symbol in this game is the head of a Mayan totem pole. When it appears on any reel, animation morphs it into a spectacular symbol covering the whole reel. The Wild symbol then applies to all three rows.
To advance to the Bonus Round, players must collect orange stone balls, which automatically drop into the receptacles below when they appear on any reel. Five orange balls trigger the Bonus Round where the goal is to create a winning horizontal, vertical or diagonal line of three or more of the same adjacent symbols. Players have five chances to destroy any block on the reels causing another block to drop down to replace it. A line of three or more of the same symbols pays off to the player’s cash balance according to the payoff chart.
Like all of the online slots at Slotland, Tikal Treasure is tied to the casino’s progressive jackpot. According to Mayan mythology, the god Quetzalcoatl is a giver of life; in the new Tikal Treasure slot machine, the 5 Quetzalcoatl symbols in a row on a minimum $20 bet wins the jackpot.
