Aztec culture makes for some interesting game play, that we all know. From the history to the bright colours, there is just so much scope for game designers. Well, as it happens, Just for the Win are the team behind this next slot centred around the Aztecs. They bring you a slot named the Amazing Aztecs, and it’s quite rightly named considering their achievements in history.
Amazing Aztecs is a 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot offering players an RTP of 96.3%. With the game being 243 ways to win, this means the developers have done away with the generic pay line layout. Instead opting for wins to be created from left to right, as long as the matching symbols are on adjacent rows. Set inside a jade like dragon temple, your reels are full of colourful characters and Aztec symbols. Playing along is a subtle tune that is a nice addition as the reels spin.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Amazing Aztecs begins at just 10p per spin and can be increased up to £100 per spin. To adjust your bet, click on the casino chip icon above the spin button. You will see a sliding scale filled with bet amounts on it. Use the arrows above and below to select your chosen bet and then just hit spin to get playing at that bet level.
Wild Symbol – There is no wild symbol in Amazing Aztecs, but that has little effect on the gameplay itself. Instead of wild symbols there is a very interesting main feature which you can read about below.
Scatter Symbol – As well as no wild symbol there is also no scatter symbols in the game. But as we mentioned above, Amazing Aztecs has a very interesting feature in play. It will certainly make you forget about the lack of either the wild or the scatter.
Other Symbols – Your main game symbols include a variation of characters and Aztec drawings. Higher values include the Amazing Aztecs logo which is the top one, then four characters dressed in different coloured clothing. Starting with gold, then purple, green and finally blue. There are also 5 lower value symbols, starting with red, yellow, purple, green and blue. Each of the lower value symbols look as if they have been carved and painted in the form of Aztec wall drawings.
Giant Respin Feature – So, we have talked a lot about the fact that this feature more than makes up for the lack of a wild and a scatter symbol. Read on below to find out more about the Giant Respin and see how it is going to aid bigger potential wins.
After every winning spin you will be offered the chance of the giant respin feature. A gold line will begin to move across each of the symbol positions on reel 3. If it lands on the symbol that is forming part of the winning combination, you will bag a respin of the reels with the giant symbol in place. As the reels spin you will see a 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 symbol matching that of the winning combination you just landed. These giant symbols will overlay on the reels as they spin and once the spin ends one of the 3 giant symbols will land either partially or fully in view. Obviously you will be hoping for that 4×4 to land fully in view, but even if it only lands as a partial you are still in with bigger win chances.
Just for the Win has brought a nice, playable game to your mobile devices. No need for all the bells and whistles here as the main feature triggers often. Who needs a wild symbol or a scatter when you have the giant respin in play, not us that’s for sure!
Wins in the main game happen often, hence the feature triggering often too. It doesn’t always land on a winning symbol and trigger the respin, but in most cases it does and that is enough to keep us coming back to play. Amazing Aztecs is certainly a game that shouldn’t work on paper and should definitely have people switching off with the lack of features, wilds and scatters. But, in reality it works quite well, meaning people find their way back to this game time and again, and we can see why after getting chance to play it for ourselves.
