Spirits of Aztec Online Slot
Spirits of Aztec by Playson has an easy gameplay. There are 5 reels and 21 paylines. The special symbols are the Wild and the Scatter. The slot has no risk game or bonus game available.
Quite significant bet multipliers is the key advantage that this slot provides. You can get 2,000 for the highest winning combo and 10,000 for the best combo with a Wild symbol.
Spirits of Aztec game rules
You need to adjust your bet size prior to spinning the reels. There are two values that need to be adjusted in the centre of the control panel:
- Lines – designates the number of active paylines per spin
- Bet – shows the value of your bet per line
Click on the horizontal arrows to the left and to the right of each window to adjust your bet values. The number of lines varies between 1 and 21, and your bet per line varies between 0.01 and 10 credits. Depending on your selection, the resulting total bet will come up in the Total Bet window.
There are two more windows to the left and the right of the Total Bet,
- And Win
The former one displays the remaining coins that you have available, while the latter one shows your winnings (if the spin was successful).
Right at the bottom of the game screen you will see the Total Bet again, along with the Balance window. Your initial balance is always 1,000 credits at the beginning of the game. In this particular case, the Balance and Credit (the number of game coins) are equal because the coin value is not set and it can differ from the cost of the credit. The game is totally free in this version and you place your bets by using credits. The Play for Fun sign in the lower left corner reminds you of it.
Automation of settings
You can make the reels spin and select your bet size automatically. Two buttons serve this purpose,
- Max Bet
- And Autoplay
The Max Bet button lets you set the highest bet of 210 coins (which is 10 coins per line) with a single click. Yet at the same time the reels will not spin automatically when you hit this button.
The Autoplay button lets you adjust the autospins. Although, the automation of this function might let you down because you have to keep clicking on the horizontal arrow constantly to add more spins. The highest number of spins is 999, which requires 998 clicks in a row. If you change your mind, you will need to click the other button on the other side of the window to decrease the number of spins.
Below, closer to the right corner of the game screen, there are three buttons with the following images:
- A gear
- A speaker
- And a frame
The first button lets you adjust the graphics, the second one lets you enable or disable the sound effects and the last one allows you to go fullscreen.
Once your bet size and any desired automatic settings have been set, it is time to hit the Spin button to spin the reels.
Spirits of Aztec symbols and multipliers
Spirits of Aztec uses both regular and special symbols.
The Wild symbol
Playson developers chose a picture of a lady dressed in the ceremonial garments of an Indian priestess, to act as the Wild symbol. It replaces all symbols except for the Scatter to complete the winning combos. The symbol itself forms winning combinations, starting with two symbols. The Wild combos are also the highest paying ones.
- Two wilds pay 5 coins,
- Three pay 100 coins,
- Four pay 1,000
- And you get 10,000 coins for 5 Wilds
The Scatter symbol
A human skull was chosen as the Scatter symbol. Three or more such Scatters trigger 15 free spins. Moreover, this symbol forms winning combos regardless of whether it landed on active lines or not. Scatters pay the following multipliers:
- 500 coins for 5 symbols
- 20 for 4
- 5 for 3
what's more, they are multiplied by the total bet instead of the bet per line.
You can view the payout table by clicking on the Paytable button. You cannot say that this slot is particularly generous: the theoretical return to player (RTP) guaranteed by the developers is just 95.19%.
Regular symbols in this slot are associated with Aztec religion and culture. These are as follows:
- An Indian priest/deity statue pays 2,000, 200, 25 or 2 bet multipliers for 5, 4, 3 or 2 symbols respectively
- The Jaguar symbol has the same multipliers
- Eagle pays 500, 100 and 20
- Snake pays 250, 75 and 15
- Crocodile pays 250, 75 and 15
There are also card symbols present:
- Aces pay 150, 50 and 10 for 5, 4 and 3 symbols
- Kings pay 150, 50 and 10
- Queens pay 100, 25 and 10
- Jacks pay 100, 25 and 10
- Tens pay 100, 25 and 10
- Nines pay 100, 20 and 5
The graphics in the game are far from realistic. For example, the animal statues have bright acidic colours. And yet the background shows an abandoned Indian city in a rainforest and the sound in the background imitates the sounds of the forest.
Let's be honest about the Spirits of Aztec slot:
- 11 symbols is a bit excessive, which decreases the chances of a winning combo to be formed,
- The RTP is also low
- And there are no bonuses featured
