Aztec Idols Online Slot - Review
Aztec Idols is a slot themed to treasure hunting in the ancient Aztec Pyramids that was developed by Play'n GO. The slot comes with 5 reels, 15 paylines, a Wild symbol, free spins, a gambling round and an additional Scatter which is activated during free spins and works like a roulette wheel.
Aztec Idols Slot Free Spins
The three calendar symbols pay 5 times the total bet and trigger the free spins feature in the Aztec Idols online slot created by Play'n GO.
During the round an additional Scatter symbol is activated. Any symbol, except for Bonus, regular Scatter and Wild, can become the additional Scatter. It is selected when the Scatter symbol with all the regular icons on it, starts rotating like a roulette wheel. When it stops, one regular symbol becomes the additional Scatter and the number of free spins will also be selected.
The combinations with the additional Scatter symbol pay regardless of their arrangement on the reels. The win you get corresponds to the reward for this symbol that you can see in the pay table. However, the multiplier you have for this symbol is multiplied by the total bet rather than the bet per line. You can't re-trigger the free spins during the free spins round.
Aztec Idols Bonus Round
The bonus game in the Aztec Idols slot is launched when three Bonus symbols of golden pyramids appear on the three central reels. When it starts you will find yourself in a dungeon with five golden idols. Your task is to pick one idol at a time. If the chosen idol reveals an amount of coins you can choose again, however, if it emits a poisonous gas the round will end.

Slot Symbols and Multipliers
The slot comes with special and regular symbols.
The Wild symbol
The picture of an archaeologist is the Wild symbol. It substitutes for the regular symbols but doesn't replace special ones. The special symbols include the bonus and the Scatter symbols and the symbol which triggers the free spins. The Wild symbol forms winning combinations of its own starting with 2 symbols and pays the following:
- 2 Wilds - 10 times the bet per line
- 3 Wilds - 100
- 4 Wilds - 1,000
- 5 Wilds - 5,000
The picture of a golden pyramid is the Bonus symbol which only lands on reels 3, 4 and 5. Three pyramids trigger the bonus round.
The Free Spins Symbol & Additional Scatter
A rotating circle is the free spins symbol, it only lands on reels 1, 3 and 5 and will remind you of the Aztec calendar. It has pictures which you can come across in the slot and you need it to choose the additional Scatter which can be any regular symbol.
This slot features nine regular symbols. Four are high paying, they create combos with 2, 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols and are connected with the Aztec religion. The remaining five symbols are playing cards and their winning combinations are made from 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols. The symbols are:
- The golden mask of a god
- The silver mask of a god
- A jade and stone mask of the Jaguar god
- Playing cards Ace, King, Queen, Jack and 10
Their multipliers are found in the paytable and are applied to the bet per line. The winning combinations are only counted if they start with the leftmost reel.
The gambling round invites you to increase any win from a spin on a separate game screen. The Bet Max button turns into Gamble after you have a winning combination and you need to click it to open the gambling round. Your task is to guess the colour or the suit of a face-down card using the corresponding buttons.
A right colour guess doubles your win, and each right suit guess quadruples your win. You have 5 attempts and a maximum of 2,500 coins to win in the round. If your guess is wrong all the previously earned winnings are lost, including the win you've had for the latest spin in the main game.
