Discovers Tumbling Wins in Aztec Clusters Slot
In the time of the Aztecs, it was like they had a party planned for every day of the week, from sun-up to sundown, complete with a calendar that made your Google schedule look like child’s play. Their art? It was like Picasso met Bob Ross in a time-traveling blender, spitting out masterpieces left and right. And who needs Netflix when you’ve got the Aztec soap opera—gods, humans, and drama hotter than their chili-filled cuisine?
Time to party!
Aztec Clusters slot has some interesting base mechanics. Firstly, wins are decided with clusters instead of paylines. This means that if five or more of the same symbols are touching either horizontally or vertically, a win is awarded. This is accompanied by a cascading reels mechanic that removes symbols involved in winning combinations, allowing new symbols to fall into the empty spots. This gives you multiple chances to win from each spin. Both these features then work together for the next base game mechanic.
When the symbols of each winning combination disappear, the positions that they disappear from are marked. If the next cluster win lands on a position that has already been marked, that position gains a 2x multiplier. If a third cluster win lands on the position, the multiplier increases, and the original multiplier is applied to the winning amount. The interplay between the different mechanics is a little complicated, but it offers really engaging gameplay. All multipliers and marked positions are, however, reset after each spin in the base game.
The cascading reels feature also connects with the wild symbol. Like all wild symbols, this one will substitute for other symbols to complete winning combinations. The Aztec Clusters slot wild will, however, also become sticky, remaining on the reels until all cascades have been completed.
Three or more scatter symbols will trigger a round of the slot’s free spins. When this happens, the triggering scatter symbols will be transformed into sticky wild symbols that will remain on the reels until the end of your round. Additionally, marked positions and the subsequent multiplier positions that are formed won’t be reset after each spin and will continue to grow throughout your round of free spins.
Is Aztec Clusters slot ready to party?
If you’re betting at the $25 a spin maximum, you’re able to chase up to $250,000 in winnings when playing Aztec Clusters slot. And even if you choose to bet at the $0.25 a spin minimum, you’ll still have a shot at up to $2,500 in winnings thanks to the 10,000x max multiplier. You will, however, have no choice but to chase big wins thanks to the slot’s very high volatility. Aztec Clusters slot offers an RTP of 97%.
There are a lot of Aztec-themed slot games out there. We offer 25 of them with Aztec in the title. There are probably a few more that have slightly more cryptic titles. So, standing out is challenging, especially when you consider how beautiful the illustrations are in some of the other Aztec-themed slots. Aztec Clusters just doesn’t stand out from the pack. That being said, the slot does have some really engaging bonus features that do work in its favor. As a result, I give this one a seven out of ten. It could have been so much better, though.
I’m not saying this is a slot I would necessarily recommend, but if you want to try out the most popular game among BitStarz players that just so happens to be from BGaming, then you should try Elvis Frog in Vegas.
