Azteca Slots

AztecaAzteca is far from being subtle about the theme it gives you, the Aztec civilization being the one they’ve used as inspiration. It’s not just about the Aztecs though, as quite a few symbols are about the lovely young woman that is in the middle of an adventure, in search for long lost treasures. The game was created by Playtech and they’ve put quite a bit of work into this game, starting with its graphics and continuing with the features and top prizes that can be won.

The adventures you get to take part in as you play Azteca will take place on its 20 paylines, with a 5 reel setup being their host. The features offered in Azteca get you free spins, scatter symbols, bonus features and wilds. The prizes are the best ones though, a maximum of $500,000 being offered in this game.

Features of Azteca

There is a little bit of everything in Azteca, from the scatter symbol, to the free spins with multipliers that it triggers, the wild symbol or the bonus game.

The Aztec Pyramid will be the substitute symbol, the one that is also called a wild. Any wild symbol can act as another symbol, a regular one that already has matching symbols nearby on a payline. If the wild symbol is on the same payline, it takes the role of the symbol that is needed on it, if a new combo will appear as a result. What I love about this symbol is its ability to also give away the top jackpot, which also happens in this game. You can walk away with up to 10,000 times more money than you invested on that payline.

Our young adventurer gets another important role in this game, and also quite generous with its prizes. The scatter symbol will give away 1x to 500x the round’s total bet as a prize, whenever 2 to 5 of them are present in random positions. It can have the same value as the top jackpot offered by the wild, so there are two different ways you can get paid a serious amount of money.

Free Games Feature

The scatter symbol is also useful because of the free spins it can get triggered. The reward you get from it when 3+ symbols are on the reels consists in 12 free spins and a x3 multiplier.


Bonus Game

The Gold Idol bonus symbol can also be quite profitable, in theory being capable of offering more than the top jackpot, with rewards of up to 14,175x being advertised. The bonus prize that this feature offers is offered as is for three Bonus symbols forming a combo, but it is multiplied by x5 when there are four Bonus symbols and with x27 when all five are present.


Betting options and jackpots

The bets you make in Azteca have a few different components. First, you decide on the number of paylines that should be active. Next, you choose how many coins should be used for each payline, with the range being 1 to 10. The denomination is the last one, also with a big enough range to allow you to customize the wager, going from $0.01 to $5. You end up with line bets of up to $50, while total bets go up to $1,000.

If you can afford to bet $1,000 per spin, you might just have a chance at the slot’s top jackpot, the 10,000 coins that turn into up to $500,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The jungle is present both behind the reels and in a few of the symbols. The action seems to take place in these wild forests, as our adventurer tries to reach the Aztec temple. The Aztec theme is not original, far from it, but Playtech has managed to create a decent experience here. Even the playing cards have drawings on them which are typical for the design style that the Aztecs preferred.

Symbols: Aztec Pyramid (wild, 10,000x), Gold Idol (bonus), Female Adventurer (scatter, 500x round’s bet), Monkey (500x), Airplane (400x), Backpack (200x), Ace (150x), King (125x), Queen (100x), Jack (75x) and Ten (50x).


Is It Worth Playing?

With a female hero that will remind you of the Tomb Raider chick, with up to half a million in prizes and multiple interesting features, Azteca manages to be a decent slot machine, so I’d say give it a go.

This Azteca slot is offered by all online casinos with Playtech software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
