Maori Slot Review
This is a video slot which stands out. Endorphina have chosen to take on a theme which has not really been developed in the online slot world before.
We’ve seen Native American themed slots we’ve seen Inuit, and Chinese culture themed slots. What we haven’t seen before are Maori and New Zealand themed slots. It is a massive challenge to accurately represent the Maori people in a manner which is appropriate and yet exciting to the player, but Endorphina have showed that they are up to the challenge with the design of this slot.
Whilst the design of the slot is above board, how does the gameplay and the rest of the slot compare? Hopefully, Endorphina won’t have slacked off with the rest of the game. Let’s find out…
How to play
Maori is a simple video slot in terms of wagers and paylines. There are just 9 paylines present on the reels, and you can alter them as you see fit. This 5-reel slot allows players to select coin denominations of $0.01 up to $1.00, and bet up to 10 of those coins per payline.
At its cheapest, this slot machine will set players back around $0.01 per line per spin. At its costliest, players are looking at maximum wagers of $90 per spin, which isn’t so bad at all.
Wild symbols: There are wild symbols in this slot machine game, and they can appear as a group of Maoris. The slot machine uses this wild to replace all other symbols in the game, except for scatters and sun icons. Any winning combinations which feature wild symbols will have their total value doubled.
Scatter symbols: Scatter symbols appear as tribal imagery. When these symbols appear twice or more on the reels, players can pocket scattered wins for their efforts. Land them 3 or more times on the reels to activate a free spins bonus in the Maori video slot.
Free spins bonus: You probably aren’t expecting too much from this free spins bonus round. You will be pleasantly surprised then. Players will begin with an unlimited number of spins. Any winnings you bag during this bonus will be tripled. However, when a green sun appears, it can add a blue sun to the counter. When a red sun appears, it can remove a blue sun from the counter. The feature will end when several blue suns appear on the counter. In short, dodge as many green suns as possible to keep the fun going.
Players can win as much as 90,000 coins in this video slot. To win that prize, players are going to need to bag as many wild symbols on active lines as possible.
Wild symbols constitute the best paying symbols in this slot machine game. Other symbols in the slot aren’t worth nearly half as much as the wild symbols.
So, how did Maori come out? Endorphina did a top job on the look of the slot, as we’ve said. Although there are only 9 paylines in the game (and that is too few for our tastes), the features and broad wagering range, coupled with the overly decent cash prizes make this slot a hit.
There really is nothing quite like Endorphina’s Maori on the market right now, so if you fancy an original slot machine to play, this could very well be it.
