Microgaming Amazing Aztecs Video Slot Review

Amazing Aztecs: Demo

Go back in time to a lost central American civilisation in Amazing Aztecs. It’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from Just For The Win (JFTW) and Microgaming that comes with colourful cartoon design and a Giant Re-Spin feature that can hit following any winning spin and fill the reels with 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4 symbol blocks. Stakes range from between 10p and £100 per spin.

JFTW has kept things simple here, both in the way Amazing Aztecs looks and plays. The action takes place within an Aztec pyramid which is watched over by a pair of dragons. The reels are made up of 5 lower value shapes and 4 higher value Aztec characters and the Amazing Aztecs logo. Land 5 of the latter and you’ll get 10 times your bet.

There’s no traditional free spins round on offer here. The only extra is the Giant Re-Spin feature which can trigger following any winning spin. The eyes of the dragons light up and gold drips from their mouths. If the trail of gold circles the winning symbol, it expands into a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 symbol and a Giant Re-Spin follows. If you land a winner here, the process is repeated. If the gold trail drips around a winning symbol, another re-spin follows.

That’s pretty much it as far as gameplay goes. You can expand to see the Giant Re-Spins feature regularly and if you land a 4×4 winner some cracking combinations are possible.  The variance here is the medium range offering a balance of payouts.

There’s nothing too flashy about Amazing Aztecs. The cartoon design is colourful but simply done. It works well enough though. As does the simple gameplay. This isn’t a video slot for players who like plenty of variety in their extras – for that, Microgaming’s Jurassic World is a good choice.

If you’re after simple action and a regularly hitting feature, then Amazing Aztecs offers just that. Get the 4×4 symbol block re-spins and the Amazing Aztecs can certainly live up to their name.
