SlotBeats has embraced the lost civilisation of the Aztecs as BGaming claims our Slot of the Week award for its Aztec Magic Bonanza.
With an RTP of 96% and a high volatility level implemented within the game, this 6×5, 40-payline video slot incorporates cascading reels and a maximum win potential of up to x10,200 the bet.
Yulia Aliakseyeva, Game Producer at BGaming, commented: “The Aztec Magic series is extremely popular among our players, and we’re happy to add Aztec Magic Bonanza to our collection. It is the second slot with refilling reels in the BGaming lineup.
“We expect it to repeat the success of Bonanza Billion, which showed the best start among studio titles.”
Starting off with the symbols in the game, combinations of a kind pay for clusters of eight or more-of-a-kind.
Among the reels, players will find classic A-10 royals offering x2 to x10 the bet for combinations of 12 or more. These are followed by two Aztec symbol mid-pays offering x12 and x15 the bet for twelve or more of the same symbol, and two high-pay characters offering x25 and x50 the bet for twelve or more of-a-kind wins.
Special symbols, on the other hand, include scatters which pay on any position in the main game while, during the free spins mode, only serve to retrigger the feature. Lastly, multiplier symbols are present only during free spins.
Moving onto the features within the title, these include refilling reels, a chance x2 bonus, a buy the bonus option, scatter symbols and a free spins mode.
Starting with refilling reels, this gives players the chance to land consecutive wins on every spin, paying all combinations while all winning symbols disappear. This allows the remaining symbols to fall to the bottom of the screen and replaces the empty positions with symbols coming from above.
This feature will continue until no more winning combinations appear, with no limit to the number of possible refills. After all of the refills resulting from a base spin have been played, all wins are added to the player’s balance.
Moving on, in order to activate the free spins bonus, players must land four, five or six scatter symbols anywhere on the screen, awarding 10, 20 or 30 initial spins, respectively. Should three more additional scatters drop during the bonus round, the player will receive five extra spins.
Additionally, the multiplier symbol is present on the reels only during the bonus feature, remaining on the screen until the end of the refilling sequence. Whenever the symbol hits, it takes a random multiplier value from x2 to x100.
When the refill sequence ends, the value of all multiplier symbols on the screen are added together and the total win of the sequence is multiplied by the final value.
Moving onto the buy bonus option, in jurisdictions where permitted, this allows players to buy directly into the free spins feature with four or more scatters appearing on the reels.
As a final incentive, the chance x2 feature slightly increases the bet while giving the player more chances in the main game to land four or more scatters and trigger a free spin game.
