Description and Review: OK, so Aztec Idols (or – to give it its full name ‘Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols’) looks a little like Gonzo’s Quest what with the whole Aztec/Inca head symbols. But the game is very different. And we mean that in a good way.
Aztec Idols is a well-designed, easy on the eye, 3D style, 15 line slot. It’s not the most innovative game you’ll ever play, but it certainly has it’s charms.
Firstly, the return to play is a healthy 96.65% – always a good thing.
Then we have two bonus rounds with decent sized wins available.
The most frequently triggered is via the Wheel symbol, which appears scattered. Hit three of these are you are into the free spins round.
You will then see a larger version of the Wheel, which spins to reveal how many free spins you get as well as which symbol will serve as the ‘extra scatter’ icon.
There are up to 50 free spins to be won. You’ll find that the extra scatter is the thing that really gives you the big wins, though. Get two scatters on the reels during a winning spin and the scatter symbols expand to take up the whole reel. New wins are then triggered. This is by far the best part of the slot and you can expect to see some pretty sizeable wins.
The other bonus is triggered by three Temple/Chichen Itza symbols. This takes you to a tomb where you pick treasures. Each treasure awards a prize until you choose one with no prize. We averaged 200-400 coins each time this hit – the maximum is 150x line bet. As Aztec Idols is aimed squarely at low rollers (you can bet from 0.01 to 0.25 per line and up to 5 coins per line), this is a bonus worth getting.
As with other Play N Go Slots Games, there are only a few online casinos that offer Aztec Idols, but you should at least make the effort and try this one out.
With a maximum win of 5,000 coins in the base game and plenty of opportunity for big wins in the bonus rounds, add this one to your list.
