If you’re a fan of Cozy Games online slots, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Aztecs is their latest addition, and it looks mightily impressive. The reels are further away from the screen than you’ll be used to, so your immediate feeling when seeing the Aztecs slot might be one of surprise. But it’s a good surprise…
Aztecs Slot Introduction
The Aztecs slot is a 5 x 4 online slot from Cozy Games, delivering an impressive Aztec theme with more features than might initially be apparent. The design is beautiful and while the reels don’t spin, another more appropriate way of changing the symbols comes into play.
Cozy Games has worked hard on Aztecs, it is eye-catching, with great graphics and packed with features!Adam DaleThe game takes place in a forest, and you’ll see a stone structure in which the four rows of five symbols in each are placed. You’ll notice multipliers under the reels, and we’ll explain more about those in a moment.
Graphics and Playability
We’ve mentioned how good the game looks already. There’s a lot of detail here, and you can focus on it all thanks to the coloured icons on each pale stone square on the reels.
The game controls are good too – the three lines in the top left hide the game info, pay table and other areas such as help. Click on your bet or the coin above the spin button to change the number of lines to play and the coin value on each one.
Symbols and Payout Table
The symbols are all based on Aztec icons and designs. There are eight standard icons, worth five different amounts depending on how many you get of each.
There are separate wild and scatter symbols, too. The wild has that word on it, and is the most valuable symbol, bringing a 200-coin prize for five filling a line. The scatter is labelled ‘free spins’ and appears in gold. You’ll want to find some of these, and for good reason too… but we’ll keep you in suspense for a moment longer.
Aztecs Slot Features
The Cozy Games Aztecs slot attaches the usual powers to the wild. It can replace all other symbols apart from the scatter. If you manage to find three, four or five scatters on the blocks, you will get either five, 10 or 15 free spins.
The game also uses the cascading reels feature – something you may have seen elsewhere. When you hit spin and new symbols drop into view, any that form a winning combination will explode. This allows further symbols to drop into their places. If you get more wins from those, you’ll see the new winning combos explode as well. This carries on until you get no more wins from the combination of symbols on the screen.
You will probably notice the multipliers at the bottom of the reels when the game loads. These are shown as 1x, 2x, 3x and 4x. They come into play when you get a winning combination. Once the cascading reels have stopped, the multipliers are lit and you move between them to determine which one you get. The resulting multiplier is used to boost your prize by as much as 4x, which is a handy feature to have.
The multipliers work during the free spins feature as well, but they have an extra perk to offer here. Every multiplier value is doubled from its normal amount, meaning you can get 2x, 4x, 6x or even 8x any win following each free spin.
The game also has a gamble feature. We’ll mention this in case you are interested, but we normally recommend you don’t use it. That’s because it is one sure way of losing whatever you have won on a spin. The idea is to click on gamble and choose either red or black, or one of the four playing card suits. If you choose red or black and get it right, your winnings are doubled. If you choose the right suit out of the four given, your winnings are given a 4x multiplier. But choose the wrong one and you’ll lose everything.
Betting and Payout Rate
The coin values only go up from a penny a time to 50p, so the top bet is only £10. You can still play for just 20p a spin though, in common with many other 20-line slots.
The top prize is lower than you’d expect, reaching just 200 coins for a line filled with wilds. The gamble feature allows you to try and double or quadruple a win… but in trying, you could lose the lot. We wouldn’t recommend it, as we’ve mentioned already. Bigger prizes are possible, however, when you benefit from the multiplier feature. We think the odds are better for getting between 2x and 4x any win with that, so forget the gamble bit altogether.
It’s easy to find the return-to-player too, as it is included in the game information at 95.10%.
With plenty of Cozy Games casino sites around, finding a site that offers the Aztecs slot shouldn’t be difficult. Many slots ignore the background design, but this one doesn’t. Moreover, you also get detailed symbols and colourful ones at that. Everything about this slot begs you to give it a try, don’t you think?
