The free spins round is activated with at least 3 scatter symbols and for that you get 10 free spins. But the free spins do not start immediately. First, the Book of Maya has to determine which symbol will be the wild during the free spins. That symbol will be expanded on the third reel. The last time I played this game it took me ages to trigger the free spins. At the end of the bonus round I got only a win that was 10 x bet.
I was just about to quit the game because I had no money left on my balance and I hoped that I will find another game that will save me. Then I managed to land 4 of the green man symbols on an active pay line and I won 1600 coins. This way I could afford to have a longer session playing one of my favourite slots.
The Book of Maya is a game that has a huge potential to pay well. But the thing here is that sometimes this game is simply not paying anything. The reason why I love this slot is because every time I am on the verge to quit, something happens. I manage to land good symbols and my balance just increases drastically and I can continue playing.
