Game of the Week – Aztec Gold Megaways
Aztec Gold Megaways is the latest Megaways slot game from iSoftBet. It features an ever-changing number of ways to win for each spin along with cascading wins and a cash re-spin feature that can produce massive wins.
This game is a good fit for those looking for jackpot-style wins but without the insane variance of many jackpot slot games.
Symbols Pay Somewhat Meager
Aztec Gold Megaways is a 6-Reel slot game with a changing number of ways to pay each spin. The game features graphics and sound appropriate to the theme. The soundtrack and sound effects set the mood perfectly.
The game features 10 paying symbols, but they are somewhat meager in payouts. The Royals will only turn a profit in a spin if you hit all 6 on a payline. The “higher” paying symbols are not all that impressive either.
For the hawk and snake symbols, you will break even on 5 on a reel and profit on hitting six on a payline. For the Cheetah, you have to hit four or more with a max payout of 200x. The Aztec god is the highest paying symbol, paying just 10 credits for two and up to 1,000 credits on six of a kind.
The Wild symbol substitutes for everything except for the scatter in this game. It does not pay. This game pays in a credit format, equal to 1/20th of your bet. If you play .20 per spin, you will get .01 per credit.
Up to 117,649 Ways to Win
Yes, you read that right. This game can give you up to 117,649 ways to win in a single spin. The number of ways you can win changes each spin and is determined by the size of the symbols on board.
We were able to unlock the max ways to way once during our play. The average ways to win were between 3,000 to 30,000.
This game has a Cascading Wins feature that is triggered whenever a winning combination is made. The winning symbols explode and the reels drop-down to bring in additional symbols. If a new win is made, the cascade continues.
This feature is available after each win and continues until there are no new winning combinations.
Aztec Gold Cash Respin
The Gold Sun Discs act as the scatter for this game. Land five scatters on the board to trigger the Aztec Gold Cash Respin. When triggered, you will start with three free spins. If you and an additional Sun Disc on board, the respins will reset to 3.
If you fill an entire reel with Sun Discs and you will activate the multiplier for all the discs at once. When the respins conclude, all Sun Disc values will be paid. The values are multiplied by the total bet.
The three top Gold Discs are the Mini, Major, and Mega. They pay 30x, 100x, and 1,000x your bet respectively. All three symbols can appear during the respin or can help trigger the respin feature. This is the equivalent of hitting Mini, Major, and Mega jackpots in some slot games.
During our play, we twice encountered a random “Gold Disc Boost” that added up to 20 additional Gold Discs to the reels. The first time it triggered, we fell one disc short on the spin. However, the second time, we got all five to trigger the bonus.
The bonus game ended up giving us a nice win of over 500 credits. It took a while to hit this bonus and we may not have hit it without the boost.
Aztec Gold Megaways A Fun Jackpot-Like Slot Game
Aztec Gold Megaways is a medium to medium-high variance slot game that is a good fit for those that like jackpot slots. While it doesn’t have a progressive jackpot, the three top Golden Disc wins are nice static jackpots.
This game is available at casinos like Slotto Cash, Casino Max, and Cafe Casino. Due to a bit higher variance, this isn’t necessarily the best game for those trying to clear online casino bonuses. It is recommended for those that want a shot at big wins but that doesn’t want the insane bankroll fluctuations you find with many jackpot online slot games.
