The Aztec people were a group of individuals native to central Mexico that dominated large parts of the country between the 14th and 16th centuries. We have played several games before based on Aztec mythology, and it appears to be a popular theme for a slot game due to the links with ancient treasure. The most recent game we have played is Aztec Secrets which has been developed by casino heavyweight 1X2 Gaming. We think it looks cool with lots of interesting graphics and some nice bonus features as well. We think it is worth a few spins so have listed the key bits of info below.
This game holds its own as a five reel with some fantastic graphics. We really enjoyed playing it and found it highly addictive. There are some nice bonus rounds, and the soundtrack was also pretty cool. There are twenty-five paylines, and you can place a bet from just 5p, but this rises to a maximum of £270 so the game will appeal to most types of player which is great. The base game jackpot is 800X so you can also win massively if you get lucky. Overall, a great addition and one we would highly recommend.
There is a wild on Aztec Secrets as you might expect and it is illustrated by the Aztec character who is gold in colour with an interesting mask on. For those that are unfamiliar, the wild symbol substitutes for the majority of other symbols on the reel and allows players to pick up additional wins. In addition to the wild, there is also a bonus symbol and a scatter symbol. Each special symbol has the word displayed across it so you can clearly see what has landed. The wild forms a big part of your gameplay so watch out for it as it can help you win big.
This is the primary feature in the game, and it is loads of fun. You need to land three or more of the bonus symbols anywhere on the reel, and if you land them on an active payline, then you can win a prize combination. You will also be transported to another screen where you have to pick out some stones from a large stone mask. This will allow the mask to distribute some gold coins into the basket that is displayed in front. The round will eventually end, and your prize will be totaled.
This is the second feature, and it is extremely popular, and all players love a free spins bonus round. All you have to do for this is land three or more of the scatter symbols, and all prizes are also multiplied by 2X during this round. You will receive a random amount so watch out for the scatters as they are the key to increasing the length of your game. We really enjoy the free spins, and we found that they landed quite often along with the bonus game.
