In this new casino slot from Hacksaw Gaming, we head to the Aztecs home region of Aztlan, which now goes by the name Mexico. Far into the deep and dense forest, the sun-worshiping people have now witnessed a miracle, since a giant slot landed there that has magical powers. Just like the previous slots Cubes and Cubes 2 from Hacksaw Gaming are made up of cubes, so is this slot. Where at each spin it will twist to show new symbols, like a Rubik's cube.
The Aztecs may have lived long ago, but even up until today they fascinate us with their phenomenal precision and calculations. It was the sun and the moon that they found the answers within, where through sometimes very brutal rituals they could be sacrificed to the gods and welcomed with open arms to the afterworld. A typical activity or rather sport that they had was Pok-A-Tok, where you, similar to basketball, needed to get a ball to pass through a stone hoop. It was a game that could last for a very long time and be very intense, where you could finally get a lucky winner. The reward? To be sacrificed to the gods. In other words, it was not a particularly long-term career if you were good at the sport. Fortunately, there is now another game for these Aztecs that has completely different conditions, namely the Aztec Twist slot.
Aztec Twist is a slot from Hacksaw Gaming that has 5 reels and 8 rows. You create a win on this Rubik’s cube-like slot by getting clusters of 5 or more of the same symbol type. You can choose between making a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 500, but it is worth mentioning that a Max.bet of 100 is by default. It is an RTP of 96.36% during the normal mode and if you use the game's Bonus Buy feature then the RTP is 96.57%. Aztec Twist has a medium volatility where there is a potential to win over 6900X the bet.
It is truly an exciting construction on this slot, where you can, among other things, succeed in landing a Golden Mask that contains big wins. The features you can take part in are Wild Symbol, Respins, Multiplier, Free Spins, Golden Mask and Bonus Buy. Let's find out what symbols this slot has to offer.
The game's design consists of an Aztec theme where we are placed in the middle of a dense jungle. The slot itself is very powerfully constructed, where it only has 5 reels but incredible 8 rows that twists with each spin made. Aztec Twist is one of the many mobile slots games that Hacksaw Gaming has created that has a phenomenal appearance on all devices such as mobile, tablet and computers. They have once again managed to create a suitable music for the slots that creates an enchanting effect to the spins that are made, something that we could notice in their slot Forest Fortune as well. The flute playing together with the intense drumbeats makes a perfect addition to the spins. You create a winning cluster by landing 5 or more of the same symbol type.
The lower paying symbols consist of 5 engraved patterns with the colors blue, green, purple, red and yellow. Where all of these have the same value and if you get 21 or more in a cluster, it gives 15X the bet. The higher paying symbols consist of face sculptures in the colors blue, green, purple, red and yellow. Where all of these have the same value and if you get 21 or more in a cluster, it gives 40X the bet. The game's Wild symbol consists of a hand in the colors orange and turquoise. The game's scatter symbol consists of a sun and if you land 3 or more of this, the Free Spins feature is activated. Let's find out what the features do.
During your spins in Aztec Twist you can win over 6900X the bet. The features that can help you with this are Wild Symbol, Respins, Multiplier, Free Spins, Golden Mask and Bonus Buy.
This hand-shaped symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for all symbols except for the scatter symbols.
When you spin the reels and manage to fill an entire row with the same symbol type, you will be awarded with a Respin. All symbols that were part of this filled row and that were part of this winning cluster will remain on the reels. If you then land symbols that expand this winning cluster, you get another Respin. This lasts as long as an increase in the winning cluster takes place.
When you succeed in filling an entire row with the same symbol type, you will receive a multiplier on this row. This multiplier will be between 2X to 5X and if you manage to fill several rows, you will receive a multiplier on each filled row. These are then added together if they are part of the same winning cluster.
By landing 3 scatter symbols you activate the Free Spins feature. You will then be welcomed with 8 free spins and have the chance to take part in the Golden Mask.
The complete Golden Mask covers all reels and is divided into 8 parts. When you spin the reels, parts of the Golden Mask can land covering an entire row. When this happens, you get 2 extra free spins and you then get to take part in the spin on the small cylinder above the reels. Each Golden Mask that you land stays on the screen and gives you an opportunity to take part in 8 different tiers. Each tier has different fixed values depending on how many Golden Mask you have landed. The following values are multiplied by your bet:
1 Golden Mask row = 10X
2 Golden Mask rows = 20X
3 Golden Mask rows = 30X
4 Golden Mask rows = 40X
5 Golden Mask rows = 50X
6 Golden Mask rows = 100X
7 Golden Mask rows = 250X
8 Golden Mask rows = 500X
When you land a Golden Mask, you will be randomly assigned with a multiplier between 1 to 8 that is multiplied with the current tier that you have. Once you have got a multiplier, this specific multiplier cannot reappear. This can certainly succeed in giving you huge wins.
Although the chances of activating this feature are 1 in 207, there is another way that always guarantees to activate the Free Spins feature. By paying 115X the bet, you will land 3 scatter symbols which then activate the Free Spins feature.
Hacksaw Gaming has an enormous skill when it comes to setting the mood for its online slots, something we have certainly experienced in among others, Mystery Motel and Forest Fortune. It is a very interesting construction that they have created on this slot, where the reels twist when you hit the spin button. Many online slots that have cluster pays usually have a subsequent Avalanche feature where the winning symbols disappear from the reels. Here we instead get to take part in Respins where the winning symbols remain on the reels and which also give multipliers.
The Free Spins feature really provides an opportunity to win big through the Golden Mask. Every time you land a Golden Mask, you get to take part in a spin on a cylinder above the reels, which gives a direct prize. The more Golden Masks you land, the higher potential win you can take part in. That there is an opportunity to make a Max.bet of 500 can be considered very superfluous for most people, but for the real big betters it can be attractive.
Aztec Twist really gives a twist on the spins that you do and also brings a twist to the Free Spins feature using its Golden Mask feature.
