The Michigan Lottery’s Mayan Legends game offers an exciting play experience.
It reminds me of Cash Buster, but Mayan Legends is a little more complex. In Cash Buster you roll only one die and can only bust blocks in the cash buster zone while in Mayan Legends you roll two dice which corresponds to a position anywhere on the game board.
Game mechanics of collecting adjacent pieces and the filling up of colored prize meters is similar between the two games. Instant wins also work similar, but Mayan Legends adds an additional way to win by collecting crystals.
How to Play
- Select a Ticket Price
- Click the Play Button to make a purchase and launch the game
- (For 5 Turns you’ll) Roll the Dice
The White Dice corresponds to the vertical axis, and the Black Dice to the horizontal axis. The game piece where those two number cross (that grid location) gets collected and removed.
For the roll above (white 3, black 4) the arrows indicate the piece that will be removed.
When a colored mask position is rolled, all the adjacent masks (share a vertical or horizontal side) of the same color are also removed.
How to Win
There are three ways to win:
Roll an Instant Win Location
and win the prize instantly.
Collect 3 or More Crystal Masks
the crystal masks are easy to identify, because in addition to the crystal (they also glow). Some masks contain multiple crystals.

As a game of luck, I don’t know of a system to increase your winning percentage.
But you do have control over the ticket price, so you can increase your ticket price to go bigger or decrease your ticket price to slow things down.
I have not studied ancient Mayan (Maya) culture, but it appears masks were used in many forms of art (per wikipedia), some examples include: mosaic funerary masks, giant stucco masks (on temples), and paintings of masked dancers.
