The Wombat says: Let’s go way back in time gaming fans and pay a visit to a lost civilisation in Central America with the Amazing Aztecs slot. We do love a game that is based on the ancient civilisations, like the Temple of Tut slot machine and Wild Scarabs. Forget Eygpt, South America is where it’s at!
Yes, this game from Just For The Win is all about those amazing Aztecs! The Aztec Empire stretched across Mexico all the way into the modern day US and they were best known for building fine monuments and temples and making jewellery and art all out of GOLD! Smart bunch they were… So will this latest Aztec-themed slot pay us out lots of hidden riches? Spin the reels and find out!
Look and Feel
Just For The Win have kept the design simple in this slot. The reels are set inside an Aztec pyramid that is guarded by a pair of ferocious looking dragons at the very top (this wombat is not a fan of dragons) while the graphics are done in a crisp cartoon style. As this wombat has said before, sometimes basic is best!
Amazing Aztecs Game Play
Amazing Aztecs is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 243 Ways to Win, brought to you from Microgaming (who are the people behind games like Kitty Cabana, Halloween and Thunderstruck) and Just For The Win. None of this pay-line business like the Curious Cabinet slot and other games we could mention. Now, we are going high tech on this one!
Bets start from a minimum 0.10 coin and up to a maximum 100.00 coins per spin – so there’s something here for everyone.
Your symbols on the reels are made up of 5 lower value icons that include lilies, marigolds, orchids, hibiscuses and tiger flowers carved out of stone, plus 4 higher value Aztec characters, the Chief, the Hunter, the Princess and the Shaman. The highest paying symbol on the reels is the Amazing Aztecs logo symbol that will pay out 10x your bet for 5-of-a-kind. Nice one JFTW!
There are no Wilds icon in Amazing Aztecs slot. Yes we know, it’s weird but true. In fact we can’t remember the last time we played a slot without a wild symbol in it!
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Grab your hankies Wombat Fans as there are no Free Spins up for grabs here either! Instead, you will find the Giant Re-Spin feature which is randomly set off after any winning spin.
Once you’ve triggered off the bonus, you will see the dragons’ eyes will light up and gold begin to pour out of their scary mouths. It’s pretty cool actually… in a slightly terrifying way.
If this gold highlights the winning symbol, the icon will transform into a mega block of either 2 x 2, 3×3 and 4×4. This block will then re-spin vertically until it lands in place, and if you are lucky creating some nice win opportunities. If you land another win, then the same thing happens again, and if you manage to pick up a 4×4 block here, then the winning combinations are potentially cracking!
This isn’t a slot for those of you who like their games with bells and whistles but we like the slick and simple game play. So if you are after something that’s easy on the eye (and the wallet) it’s worth a go. Plus, if you manage to land one of those mega 4×4 symbol Giant Re-spins you’ll probably be as amazed as those Aztecs!
Wombat Score: 4/5
