As you might have guessed from the title of this release, Aztec Gems Deluxe is inspired by the Aztec civilization. Released by Pragmatic Play, the game offers us 3 reels, 3 rows, and only 9 paylines in total. But do not let that fool you as the game has great winning potential and can provide amazing payouts. The game sounds quite promising and it manages to deliver what it promises.
Aztec culture has inspired many games in the industry by now, but not quite all of them manage to stand out from the crowd. That is the case with this release as the bright golden and huge reels have to be able to keep your attention for a while. The game offers only a few features, but they sure as hell are entertaining.
The good looking set of reels is placed right in the middle of the jungle. In the background are a lot of green trees and plants. There is also a huge waterfall and a beautiful lake underneath. The scene is really amazing and the experience is even better thanks to the animal sound effects present in the soundtrack. Sounds of drums can be heard as well which reminds of an ancient chant.
The symbols are not complicated at all and you will get the hang of them really fast. They include yellow, blue, green, purple, and red gemstones as the highest paying symbol. The game also offers us a wild symbol that appears as a golden mask and a special money symbol.
Even though the game does not offer a huge number of paylines, do not worry the wins will be both frequent and satisfying. Players will have the chance to win up to 1000 times the stake in a single spin. The betting range is decent as well with the minimum bet set at 0,09 and the maximum at 90 coins per spin. This is a medium to high volatility game which should work great combined with the 96,5% RTP that it offers.
As already mentioned, the game does not offer us that many features, in fact, there are only two. However, there is something new and different to experience, which will be loved by many players out there, especially since the winning potential that the game offers is great as well. The game has the classic wild symbol that does the regular duty of replacing all other symbols, except the special money symbol, in hopes of forming a winning combination.
The star of the show is the Money Re-spin feature that is triggered once you land 4 or more of them anywhere on the reels. After that, the winning symbols are locked in and you are rewarded with 3 re-spins. Every time another coin lands on an empty position, the re-spins get reset. This will continue until you have used your spins up, or you manage to fill the grid with coins. The prizes attached to the coins are added together for a huge win.
For those who are lucky and end up with a full grid of coins, the fun does not stop there, as one of three different rewards awaits you. You can get 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, or 10x multipliers applied to your wins. You can also get one of the 4 fixed jackpots that include the Mini at 100 times the stake, the Minor at 250 times the stake, the Major at 500, and the Grand at 1000 times the stake. The most fun and unpredictable reward of the three is the Wheel of Fortune that allows you one spin to win up to 388 times the total stake.
