Aztec’s Treasure Slots

aztecs-treasureAztec’s Treasure is one of two slot machines from RTG (Realtime Gaming), that have the same theme and focus on the Aztec people. You will notice that the two slots are almost identical, at least when it comes to the design and symbols that are used. The difference is with the progressive jackpot (considerably smaller in this version and awarded randomly) and the size of the bet. The Aztec theme remains just as interesting here as it is in Aztec’s Millions though.

You get to take advantage of the same great set of features, with wild symbols, scatters, free spins and multipliers all up for grabs, with a bit of luck. On the other hand, while the progressive jackpot prizes go down, the game’s own payouts go up thanks to the use of bigger wagers. The best payout available is worth about $25,000.

Features of Aztec’s Treasure

The Aztec King remains in this game just as weak a feature as he is in Aztec’s Millions. You will notice that its presence is only allowed on reels 2, 3 and 4, and that it doesn’t have prizes of its own to offer and no multipliers to apply to the combinations it helps create.

The Gold Idol promises some decent treasures if you get a few of them on the reels during the same spin. With the scatter’s ability to give away prizes based on how many symbols there are in any position, you only need three of them to get some kind of prize (though ideally you would get all five of them, for the best results). Its cash prizes start at 3x the value of the bet (3 scatters), then go to 15x (4 scatters) and finally to 100x (5 scatters). The best prize you can get this way is worth about $10,000.

Free Games in Aztec’s Treasure

Some games will offer you the same number of free spins, no matter how many scatter symbols are present, giving you a different cash prize in exchange. This game differentiates both with its cash prizes and with the number of awarded free spins. 3, 4 or 5 Gold Idols will give you either 5, 15 or 25 free spins. With 1 to 5 scatter symbols appearing during these free games, you get an additional 1 to 25 free spins you can use. If all that wasn’t enough, there is a 3x multiplier offered in the game for all payouts won during the free spins.


Betting options and jackpots

Aztec’s Treasure gives you a few more options when it comes to betting, compared with his Aztec brother from RTG. The number of lines is one thing you can change, going from 1 to 20 (I’d recommend that you always leave it at 20). The other thing is the Bet value, which modifies the line wager while considering the selected paylines. It starts at $0.01 and it can go as high as $5.

The progressive jackpot, though it is present, is not the star of the game here. It’s awarded randomly and the amount you get is worth a few thousand dollars. Considerably more valuable is the payout that the game gives away, consisting in up to $25,000 cash.

Design and symbols

The design in Aztec’s Treasure is not terribly attractive, which is easily forgiven in a game with a huge prize. It’s not the case here though, with plenty of other great slots offering a theme that is about Ancient South American civilizations, which look better and offer an improved experience.

Symbols: Aztec King (wild feature), Golden Idol (100x bet multiplier), Aztec Princess (5000x), Leopard (2500x), Bird Costume (1000x), Golden Broach (500x), Gold Necklace (500x), Ace card (200x), King (200x), Queen (150x), Jack (150x), Ten (100x) and Nine (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

All things considered, it’s a game you should play if you enjoyed Aztec’s Millions, but you don’t want to focus on the progressive jackpot and you want bigger typical game payouts instead. Compared with other games, the Aztec theme is its only advantage for true fans of that civilization, but it’s a fairly average slot otherwise. Both its design and its features would be considered average, so they are not a good reason to come back on their own.

Aztec’s Treasure can be found at any RTG casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
