Much like the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Aztecs are surrounded by mystery. There are so many questions that have been left unanswered. And much like the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Aztecs have quite a few video slot games based around them.
Hidden treasure is also a mainstay when talking about the Aztecs so exploring their temples might prove just as fruitful as it is for the Egyptian themed games.
The theme is always a fun one to play around with due to the mysterious nature of it all but the titles need to be unique in order to stand out. Let’s have a look and see if BGaming has managed to pull off that feat.
Theme & Symbols
Picture anything Aztec related and you’ve got a solid idea of what to expect from this title. There’s a lot of imagery that will put you in the explorer mindset.
The play grid is semi-transparent and made out of stone bricks. In the background you can see an Aztec pyramid surrounded by lush greenery and rolling hills.
The music is quite well done, it doesn’t feel out of place. The sound effects compliment the music really well, when you land a winning spin a subtle effect is played letting you know you’ve hit a winning combo. Even on regular spins the effects are quite nice.
The animation quality is good, the reels spin smoothly and there are some basic animations that play when you land winning combos. While this won’t blow you away or anything, it’s still a nice touch.
The basic, low-paying, icons you’ll be seeing the most of are classic playing card values. 10, J, Q, K and A are all given a thick yellow font making them extremely noticeable.
Next up are the high-paying symbols, these are represented by various stone medallions. There are three of these medallions in total.
The Scatter Icon is represented by an Aztec Huntress. These icons play vital roles in triggering bonus gameplay features.
Finally, the Wild Symbol is represented by an Aztec Chieftain. He can substitute for any other common symbol in the game and triples any winnings in the line he’s a part of.
Betting Options & Features
Aztec Magic is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot game that has 15 paylines and a RTP of 96.96%.
Should a winning combo have a Wild substituting for another symbol, that payout is tripled.
If you’re lucky enough and three or more Scatter symbols land during a spin you’ll be awarded with 10 bonus spins. If you’re even luckier to land them again during your bonus spins, they’ll retrigger.
BGaming has created a fun video slot that explores an interesting theme. While it may be very basic, if you’re a fan of the setting or theme give this one a go, you might be surprised.
