Aztec Magic Megaways Slot Review
It’s said that the Aztec emperor, Montezuma, drank 50 cups of cacao a day from a golden chalice. And that’s just another way of saying the emperor loved to throw his money because the Aztecs used cacao beans for currency.
Rather than going to the effort of harvesting beans, BGAMING offers an easier way to make money. Presenting Aztec Magic Megaways slot! Let’s see if the game’s as sweet as we anticipate.
Megaways slots are renowned for their random reel modifier mechanism that can boost a game’s ways to win. In the case of Aztec Magic Megaways slot, we’re talking 117,649 ways – not too shabby, eh?
This one’s a highly volatile game that plays out on a 6x3 reel grid that’s simplistic in design. Simplistic, yet there’s a lot of detail in the renderings so if you’ve got a decent screen, the images pop rather nicely.
I checked it out on my iPhone 12 Pro and I have to say that it looks pretty funky. I don’t know why, but I actually prefer this view to the desktop version. As for the soundtrack, you get jungle sounds on a 14-second loop which gets old pretty quickly.
On the top right, you’ll see the Megaways counter that will show you what that number is currently. The Buy Bonus and Chance x2 features are left on the grid, but I’ll get to that a little later.
The RTP for Aztec Magic Megaways slot is a very nice 96.69% and it boasts a 12,960x multiplier.
Let’s start the proceedings with the Wild. This takes the form of a golden pyramid and they can get random multipliers of 1x to 3x.
Wilds only appear on reels 2-5 and if they land during Free Spins, they become sticky and stay where they are until the end of the round.
If more than 1 Wild forms part of a winning combo, then all multipliers are applied!
The Scatter is a golden orb with a grimacing face on it. Land 3 of these and you’ll get 8 Free Spins. If you land 4 Scatters, the Free Spins will go up to 10. Five Scatters will get you 12, and 6 Scatters brings in a whopping 16 Free Spins.
The Bonus Buy feature allows you to get Free Spins, for a price of course. I used this to snag 8 Free Spins. During my round, I landed 4 Wilds which got me a Super Mega Win of 67.20 and a Big Win of 23.60 straight after.
Yeah, so just as in Colossus Hold & Win slot, calling something a “Super Mega Win” but only pulling in a paltry amount as I did, is pretty incongruous.
The last feature for this game is called Chance x2. By toggling this button, and increasing your stake by a little more, you’re looking at a better chance of grabbing 3 or more Scatters, which will bring in Free Spins.
The Chance x2 also bumps up the max bet limit to €30. Ordinarily, it’s €20, and the minimum bet is €0.10. You’ll see a star in the middle of the SPIN button when you’ve elected to use this feature and the visual reference on the left of the grid also reminds you that it’s on (and that you’re paying a bit more).
While the Aztec’s might have liked nothing more than a good ol’ sacrifice, nothing’s been sacrificed when it comes to the performance of this game.
Just as sweet as the chocolate our pyramid-building homies adored, the max win here stands at €259,200.
There are simply loads of Aztec-themed games floating around so in order to stand out, a game has to deliver some serious magic.
Aztec Magic Megaways slot offers decent (but not amazing) graphics, Free Spins, a Bonus Buy, and Chance x2 features – not enough to upset any of the top contenders.
The magic part of the title probably refers to the ways to win and considering there are 117,649 of them, that could totally qualify.
It’s not a great game, but it’s definitely not rubbish either. The RTP, max win, and multiplier are all good. The high volatility won’t see you scoring many smaller wins, but they should be quite impressive when the big ones come.
