Aztec Idols is one of the most fascinating online slots Play’N Go has ever conjured. It is a five-reel, three-payline slot that is sure to bring out lively and cheerful emotions with its apt depiction of what life was like for the ancient Aztecs. This video slot has a wide range of special features and offers really great prizes.
Progressive Jackpot: No
Software: Play’N Go
Get ready to go on an excursion into South America in search of treasure in Play’N Go’s Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols, an online video slot that looks awfully good with plenty of high-quality graphics and animations that is played out over five reels and 15 paylines. The reels look as if they’re built into the wall of a ruined Aztec temple.
Before beginning on your quest for ancient Aztec treasure, remember to set your bet. Pressing “Coins”, you select the number of coins wagered and “+/-” buttons will modify the coin value ranging from 0.01 to 0.25. Clicking the “Lines” button determines the number of active paylines. And if you want to spin on the highest possible wager press “Max Bet”. “Spin” starts the game, while “Auto Play” spins the reels multiple times uninterrupted.
There are some animations on the reels, and thankfully, these are done just right. The sound effects feature a robust combination of drums, pipes and upbeat beats when you hit wins. When you stop spinning, you’ll hear crickets and jungle sounds in the background. These are fine, premium-quality effects, although the levels of the “win” noises could do with being a little more muted.
Players won’t take long to realize that Aztec Idols is every bit as good or even better in some regard than most of the online slots that feature the same Aztec theme. The standard gameplay is smooth and the graphics and sounds are all professionally done. Punters would definitely appreciate the ambient jungle sounds that could be heard in between spins as they really add to the tropical ambiance.
The basic playing card symbols are decorated with olden scripts and then, the higher value ones are four decorative masks. Rich Wilde is the wild symbol. There’s a golden pyramid bonus that appears only on reels three, four and five and there’s also a sunstone scatter symbol which activates the main feature.
Pick the Idols
If you can land three of the golden pyramids anywhere on reels three, four and five, you would get the opportunity to play this mini-game. You’ll be taken to a screen that has a number of idols and all you have to do is pick them until you find the one containing the poison gas. That would end the round but all the others are worth a cash prize.
Sunstone Free Spins
The sunstones only appear on reels one, three and five but if you can land them on the same spin, you would trigger this feature. You would then see a central sunstone spin and this would determine how many free spins you receive plus which symbols would function as an extra scatter for you. That scatter is obviously geared to win you a bit of extra money and it pays at the same level as the base game. The spins can’t be re-triggered from within this feature.
You can try to double or quadruple your most recent win by using the “Gamble” button beneath the reels and it’s a card prediction game where you try to pick the correct color or suit of the next card.
