A picturesque scene meets you midway while loading the game. A silhouetted mountain, rolling green hills and a deep blue lake sitting against the princess castle backdrop is something of great visual appeal.
Reels are adorned in gold. The entire game screen comes in solid gold framing and features intricate cravings that speak to the masterful craftmanship that the great Aztec civilization is.
Lower value symbols include the classic playing cards 10, K, Q, J and A while the top valued batch contains an eagle warrior – a respected figure in the Aztec military setting, a ferocious jaguar a black panther and finally the princess herself, appearing magnificently adorned in all fitting regal gear. She’s the best symbol you’ll find.
Playing card symbols form the most frequent wins, perhaps to compensate for their lower rewards. 5 of a kind of 10, Q, and J will return 60 times your line bet, 5 Ks will return 100 times your line bet, while 5 As in a row will return 200 times. 5 black panthers give you 400 times the line bet, 5 jaguars pay 1000 times, the eagle warrior returns 2000 times, and lastly, topping the paytable is the golden princess who returns a golden 5000 times for 5 of a kind.
Some more symbols to take your chances with serious gold to the next level. One is the grand Aztec pyramid symbol which acts as the game’s wild. It substitutes for all the regular symbols bar the scatter to help complete winning combinations and will multiply any winning line it becomes part of by either 2x or 3x.
The treasure chest icon is the scatter symbol which lands anywhere on the reels. Get at least 3, and you’re in for a good deal of free treasure hunt. You’re awarded 10 free trips into the gold mines for 3 treasure chests, 2 trips if you land 4 and 30 if you get all the 5. These free games come with stacked wilds as well as mystery wins which could return a cool 10 times your total bet.
Coming to the gameplay, we find a 5×3 structure offering up to 25 adjustable pay lines. This allows you to select the number of pay lines you’re going to play with. Find this among other bet settings at the bottom of your game screen. You can play with 5, 15 or 25 pay lines depending on your preference. Also set to be determined is the number of coins placed on each bet line as well as the value of these coins. The smallest possible wager is as measly as 0.10 credits per spin and rises to 25 credits maximum for bolder punters.
With other things constant, the more active pay lines you have, the better your chances of hitting a winning line, and the bigger your wager, the greater your possible payouts. Only that you don’t let your search for golden wins override your bankroll strategy.
Wins start with at least 5 of a kind symbols on the reels. Everything in terms of winning patterns is outlined in the paytable. Don’t go to the trouble of memorizing all these since the main game has a fun way of flashing out winning notifications every time you strike a winning combination.
If you can handle extra risk, then head for the gamble option which becomes active after every win. Guess the right color of the next card to be drawn and make double the prize or make a right suit guess and earn four times. This goes on for 5 right guesses in a row or until you hit a wrong guess in which case you return to the base game empty hands.
It starts out just like many other trips you probably have taken into the Aztec Empire but this time you get to meet the Aztec princess, beautiful and filthy rich. Be at your best behaviour while charming her the right way and you’ll certainly leave her presence with some of her gold.
