The secretive Aztecs have been a never-ending inspiration for archaeologists and scientists around the world. Some of their mysteries have featured prominently on the big screen and in other types of media, including game titles. The latest in a long line of Aztec-inspired slots, Aztec Secrets is a game developed by 1×2 Gaming which tries to solve some of this civilization’s riddles and reveal loads of gold.
Visually, 1×2 has done a great job in this slot. Aztec Secrets has a bit of cartoonish graphics with rocky and special symbols associated with the Aztec civilization. The reels are set against a simple backdrop which shows outlines of an Aztec temple and faint figures of trees. Of course, the reels are set in a highly ornamented frame directly inspired by the rich culture of the glorious Aztec empire.
The highest win you can score in the Aztec Secrets slot is a mere 800 coins. Although some Indian casino players will be disappointed to read this, they really shouldn’t be. The slot’s emphasis is on fun, not cash. Of course, you still get to win a solid prize, but don’t expect millions in the bag. The slot’s RTP is 95.5% which promises solid payouts for all players who stake the max.
The base game in this exciting 1×2 slot is pretty simple to play. Aztec Secrets is a slot with 5 reels and 3 rows to go with 25 adjustable paylines. On the reels, you’ll find rock slabs that feature all the common slot symbols – A, K, J, and Q. There are also symbols inspired by the Aztec civilization’s rich culture including two-headed snakes and mighty warriors.
The wide range of Aztec symbols is quite difficult to describe. We can only say that the highest-paying symbol is the decorated mask which pays 700 coins for five of a kind. Apart from these symbols, the bonus, scatter, and wild are easy to recognize. They act like all normal scatters, bonuses, and wilds do. Wilds appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only and substitute all symbols apart from a scatter; scatters activate the free spins, while the bonus triggers the bonus round and also pays the max prize of 800 coins for five on the reels along with an active multiplier.
Although the base game is pretty, well, basic, the bonus game can help you reveal the hefty Aztec Secrets.
Instead of one, the Aztecs Secrets online slot has two bonus rounds. The first one is a simple free spins mode. Land three scatters on the reels to claim 10 free spins with doubled wins. If you’re lucky enough for the scatters to appear on a regular payline from left to right you can win up to 750 coins (for 5 scatters).
The second bonus round is triggered by the bonus symbol which most likely resembles the God of the Sun (or a similar deity). Three or more symbols will activate the bonus feature which is a pick-em style game where you turn rocks over and hope that the rocky figure awards you with gold coins. At the end of the feature, your win will be totaled. If you’re lucky to land the bonus symbols on an active payline before the feature begins you’ll also win a solid prize.
In true 1×2 Gaming fashion, the Aztec Secrets slot doesn’t promise payouts beyond belief but offers quite fun gameplay. Plus, who would miss out on a chance to reveal the secrets of such a mysterious civilization like the Aztecs? The whole package is highly satisfying so don’t waste any time – uncover all the Aztec Secrets today.
