Introduction

The whole Aztec theme is delightfully put together and the graphics are among the best of any online slot game. There are also some wonderful sound effects and this online slot is simply a joy to play. Any online slots player will absolutely love the Azteca slot game.

Pay Lines and Betting Options

Azteca is a twenty pay line slot with a range of betting options. Players can select how many lines to play, how many coins to bet on each line and the value of each coin. The actual range of coin values you can choose from will vary from one online casino to another.

Wild Symbol

An Aztec pyramid is the wild symbol at this online slot game. It appears on all reels and can substitute for any other symbol, apart from the scatter or bonus symbols, to form a winning combination.

Scatters, Free Spins and Bonus Rounds

Free games are awarded when three or more of the scatters appear anywhere on the screen. You get twelve free spins with a three times multiplier. Best of all, more free games can be triggered during your free spins. The scatter symbols also award an instant prize, depending on how many appear.

The Golden Mask is the bonus symbol and three or more of these appearing consecutively on an active pay line awards the bonus feature. The bonus feature has two stages. Firstly you select from a number of golden statues to win cash prizes. If you then win entrance to the Temple of the Sun you can choose between one of two magical orbs for an additional multiplier. If the bonus game was triggered by 4 or 5 bonus symbols, then your total prize is then multiplied 5 or 27 respectively. The maximum prize you can win from the bonus feature is an impressive 14,175 times your line bet

Jackpots

The lack of a progressive jackpot at the Azteca online slot game is slightly disappointing, but there are plenty of ways to win in this game nonetheless. In addition to all the features there is also a fixed jackpot of 10,000 times your line bet if you get 5 consecutive wild symbols.
