Once again Endorphina deliver a true eye candy complemented with the tribal music that takes you to an exotic overseas journey all the way to New Zealand. The magic of Maori tribe will enchant you with an unlimited number of spins and special symbols that add multipliers to your wins. Stunning 3D design promises a totally immersive experience.

This Prague-based developing company has existed since 2010 only but already they stand out with the quality of their design and the skill to wrap the good old spinning game in interesting and intriguing themes.
How to Play It
We can hand it to the developers for leaving everything out in the open at least when it comes to game controls. All of the customising options are displayed in a transparent menu bar below the reels so you can set your preferences without the need to enter additional menus.
The 9 paylines are variable, meaning that you can set the exact number of active lines and you can also set the best size which ranges from 1 to 10.
Once you have set the numbers you can deal with customising the spinning process. There is the option to speed up the spinning by turning Turbo mode on or you can hit stop while the reels are spinning to exert some control in the game. When you get tired of clicking turn on Auto mode and let the machine do its work.
Another interesting option is Take a risk which appears whenever you score a win. It allows you to enter a mini-game of gambling.
The symbols will captivate you with their amazing lifelike renditions of beautiful Maori people. The tribe consists of elders, a man and a woman who pay the most in the game, while the younger members will, normally pay less.
The low value symbols are depicted as beautiful crafts made of stone. Maori people are famous for their artwork and this slot does them justice in this regard.
The picture of the Tribe will act as Wild symbol and it will have the power to stand in place of any other person or totem in the game except for the mask which acts as a Scatter. At the same time Wild is the top paying symbol and doubles the wins when part of the winning combination.
During the Free Spins special symbols appear in the form of sun totems. Read on to find more about the special symbols and special features.
Generally, Maori slot is a typical slot relying on standard features such as bonus symbols and the free games round. However during this free play, there are some additions that will surprise you and help you win big. What you need to do is this: find at least three Scatter symbols on the reels and wait for the free spins to happen.
Once you trigger the Free Spins the fun never stops, literally. There is no cap on the number of Free Spins you get, so you could end up playing for free forever. Still, even though it sounds amazing, nobody expects that to happen. One of the special symbols is there to take care of it. When the blue sun totem appears that is when your free games are over.
There are two other sun totems that can make or break your free spins round. The green sun totem will add a blue sun and thus end your Free Spins but it will double your total bet as a consolation prize.
On the other hand you will want to see the red sun totem as it destroys the blue sun and prolongs your free play, while at the same time it doubles your total bet. The sun totems are awarded randomly.
We have already mentioned the Take a risk option available in the main game, which allows you to gamble your wins. We consider this a special feature too as it can double your winnings if you beat the dealer’s card. You can do this up to 10 times.
The maximum amount listed on the paytable for five of a kind winning combination is when you find five Wilds across the paylines, which award 90,000 credits. This is the case when you set the best size to maximum and bet on all 9 paylines. Five Scatters will pay 45,000 credits in the same case.
The rest of the symbols will pay between 1,000 to 7,500 credits for five of a kind.
Maori will thrill you with amazing visual and sound effects. The theme is original and it represents a refreshment in the sea of holiday-themed slots. Instead of a cold and snowy setting you get a tropical story about an exotic tribe and their customs.
The unlimited free spins will keep you interested in the game as well as the generous paytable of the game. Maori slot comes with medium variance and it will reward you quite regularly, while the entertainment factor is guaranteed.
