Aztec Bonanza Design
The grid has a square shape and appears as a giant stone block. On it, initially, symbols appear in the cross-shaped layout. The 4 corners of the grid are locked in stone blocks with ornaments. Around the grid, you will see a pond with plants and a staircase on the left. On the right, stands a shadowed Aztec golden totem with various masks.
Stone blocks with gemstones in all kinds of shapes and colours land on the grid. The only differing symbol is the golden totem, which is the mystery symbol. You will relish in the explosion of stone blocks and tumbles. The activate win ways are displayed in golden on the bottom left corner next to the grid.
The images are clear, nice and colourful. The soundtrack is melodic and atmospheric. It mixes with the sounds of tumbles and stone block crashes. Pragmatic Play has created a visually inspiring and superbly designed game.
Aztec Bonanza Gameplay
To win you have to match 3 or more identical symbols on adjacent positions starting from leftmost reel to the right. Depending on which stage of the game you are, each reel can have up to 6 symbols thus a maximum of 7,776 win ways are possible! The base game has a default of 2 symbols on the 1st reel, 4 on the 2nd, 6 on the 3rd, 4 on the 4th and 2 symbols on the 5th reel. This ensures a default of up to 384 ways to win.
The pay-table consists of 8 regular and one mystery symbols. The 4 card suits are styled to appear as gemstones on stone blocks. The bronze clubs, pink hearts and purple spades pay 0.10, 0.16 and 0.33 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols of a kind. The green diamond rewards 0.16, 0.26, 0.50 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols.
The premiums are 4 gemstones in various shapes and colours. The rectangular gemstone in copper colour pays 0.16, 0.26, 0.50 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The turquoise crescent and the oval blue gem return 0.33, 0.50 and 1 time your stake for 3, 4 and 5 of a kind. The best player is the circular green gem in a brown block. Its value is 0.50, 1 and 2.50 times your stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols.
The mystery symbol is the golden Aztec totem. It triggers when the top left corner of the reel unlocks in the base game and randomly during Free Spins. When it appears, all mystery symbols on the screen turn into the same paying symbol. This gives you the chance for more wins.
The Tumble feature makes all winning symbols disappear from the grid. The rest of the symbols fall to the bottom of the grid and new stone block symbols fall from above on the empty spaces. Tumbles continue until you have no more wins or you trigger the Free Spins.
Another part of the game is the Symbol Unlocking feature. At the start of the base game, the 4 corners of the grid are covered with stone blocks. Every 2 tumbles in a row unlock one of them and trigger the respective feature. This adds new symbols to the grid and unlocks more win ways, which are displayed on the bottom left corner.
When the top left corner unlocks, this reveals mystery symbols. They all turn into the same symbol and potentially ensure your wins.
When the top right corner unlocks, up to 3 low-paying symbols of the card suits turn into high-paying ones.
When the bottom left corner is activated, all symbols on reels 1 and 2 get replaced with large 2×2 mega symbols. This rules that and all following tumbles.
When you unlock the bottom right corner of the grid, all symbols on reel 4 and 5 are replaced with large mega 2×2 symbols. This counts for the current and all following tumbles.
