The people of the Aztec were a group native to central Mexico back in the 16th to 18th centuries, and they dominated large parts of the country at the time.
We have played several Aztec-themed games in the past as it appears to be a popular theme due to the links with mystic powers and ancient treasures. Aztec Secrets is the latest game that we have played under this genre, and it has been developed by 1X2 Gaming. We think it looks ace with some interesting bonus features to enjoy as well that will hopefully bag you some big cash wins. Check out all the details below.
The game has 5 reels and a fairly standard 20 paylines, and we found the graphics to be absolutely superb. We really enjoyed playing it overall and found it quite addictive. The soundtrack stands out, and this is one of those games that you will want to play with the sound on (although you don't have to of course), and you can play on the free demo mode before you are ready to gamble real funds. Once you are ready to bet you can gamble from 5p up to £270 which is slightly unusual. The bonus features are cool, and we have these below.
The wild symbol helps players complete line wins by substituting for most other symbols on the reels. The wild symbol for this particular game is represented by the Aztec character, and you cannot miss it as it is bright gold with a big mask. This symbol will form a large portion of your gameplay, but there is also another bonus symbol as well as a scatter symbol. Both are easy to locate with each of them having "BONUS" and "SCATTER" displayed so you can tell which is which. The wild does not substitute for these so bare this in mind.
We would say that this is the main feature in the game and it is great fun once you know how to play it. You need to land three or more of the bonus symbols that we just mentioned, and if you manage to land them on any active payline, then you can win a number of prizes. You will also be transported to the bonus game screen where you have to select a number of stones from the stone mask displayed. You will receive some gold coins in the basket for your trouble, and the feature will eventually end, and your prize will be calculated.
Every slot player loves free spins, and Aztec Secrets has a few to give away. This activates when you land 3 or more of the scatter symbols on the reel, and you will also receive a 2X multiplier for all wins during this bonus game. The free spins you receive are random but overall this round has the potential to increase the length of the game, and we found that it triggered quite often which is great.
