The ancient Mayan ruins of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are calling you, where with a little bit of luck you might get a top win of over 4,000 your bet.
The Yucatan’s Mystery slot game has 5 reels and 4 rows full of gorgeous Mayan symbols, from ancient coins to totems, to a mysterious queen that is the highest paying symbol of the lot.
We like the look of this Red Tiger slot, it’s certainly far more interesting than the boring and drab Book of Kingdoms slot by Reel Kingdom. We were even more interested when we noticed that there’s not a single multiplier anywhere.
And when you consider that you can win 4,284x your bet in this Yucatan’s Mystery mobile slot, that means it’s all done by getting wins over any of the 30 paylines.
The base game doesn’t even have wild symbols or mini-games. What it does have is stacks of Mystery Symbols in the shape of coins.
They can create great wins over the reels, and generally, it’s the best and only way to get something decent in the base game.
But as with all high volatility slot games the main action is in the free spin bonus. Why? Because that’s when the Super Mystery Coin comes into play.
3 scatters trigger 10 free spins, and as you spin you’ll get a 2×2 mystery symbol moving around the reels on each spin. For each scatter that you find during the Yucatan’s Mystery slot bonus, you’ll grow the size of the mega symbols.
That’s how you get over 4,000x your bet. You grow the mystery symbol with each scatter so it takes up more and more space. If you grow it to 5×4, you are guaranteed 750x your bet on each spin.
More if you get the right highly paid symbols also on the reels. But you don’t even need to go that high to get a good win on this Yucatan’s Mystery slot.
Because if you get a single mystery symbol next to the mega symbol, that mega symbol will split over the screen creating far bigger wins than you might expect.
Overall, a good high variance machine that will have you playing for far longer than you might expect, especially side by side with other real money slot games such as the Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena slot or the Golden City game.

Stacked Mystery Symbols: The golden mask is the mystery symbol and when it lands it will flip and reveal any one other symbol on the paytable.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 pyramid symbols anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger 10 free spins.
You start the free spins with a mega 2x2 mystery symbol on the reels that move around on each spin.
If you get a scatter on the reels, you'll grow the mystery reel up to a possible size of 5x4. Better yet, if another mystery symbol lands by the side of the Mega symbol, that symbol will then split and spread over the reels, giving you greater chance at catching a win.
With it's bright and colourful look, the Yucatan's Mystery slot manages to stand out from all the other Aztec themes out there.
The stacked mystery symbols are a nice touch, the mega mystery symbols in the free spins are an even better one.
Could it do with maybe a wild or one extra feature to make the base game a little more exciting? Sure. But with 30 paylines and a low minimum bet of 0.10 a spin, anyone can take a spin and enjoy a volatile and generous paytable.
Yucatan's Mystery is a 5 by 4 reels Red Tiger slot with 30 paylines, stacked mystery symbols and free spins with mega symbols.
