The gameplay takes place in the highly colourful bushes of South America, with a golden pyramid temple sitting boldly in the background. The Aztec Idol video slot is powered by 5 reels, 3 rows, and 15 pay lines, which you can select and stake on. There's the Bet Max button that helps you set and play with the highest bet automatically.
You could also play with the other amounts in between by configuring a combination of the Coin Value, Coins, and Lines buttons on the bottom of the screen. You can bet at least €0.15 and at most €18.75 on each spin. On the bottom right of the screen is the Spin button, press it to start playing this game. The AUTOPLAY button will offer you a chance to choose up to 100 auto-spin auto-spins.
The Bet Max option and smooth animations are only available on the desktop version but not on the mobile version. Hence, the gameplay is more suited to the desktop version.
The maximum win you can make from this slot is 5,000x the line bet. As the title implies, the high-value symbols on the reels are idols from Aztec temples. The Gold-faced Idol is the highest rewarding symbol, with 5 symbols on a pay line offering you 1,000x the line bet.
The Silver-faced Idol is next, awarding you 750x the line bet for getting 5 on a pay line. The Green-faced and Sharp-toothed Idols will each give you 500x the line bet when you land 5 on a pay line. The card symbols are also available, with 5 A and K symbols on a pay line offering you 150x the line bet.
The Q, J, and 10 symbols will each offer you 100x the line bet when you get 5 matching symbols. Rich Wilde is the Wild symbol offering a whopping 5,000x the line bet for landing 5 on a pay line. The Wild will also come in for other symbols except for the Pyramid and Sunstone symbols. The Sunstone symbol is the Scatter symbol that will play an instrumental role in the bonus round.
The Aztec Idols bonus starts with the Pick-the-Idols bonus game, activated by landing 3 Golden Pyramid symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5. Once the feature is on, you will pick Golden Idol symbols, and every Idol you choose will give you a prize. Each available prize here can be up to 150x your total bet, which will be added to your wins. This bonus ends when each Idol has a cloud of dust emitting from it.
The Sunstone Free Spins feature will be activated when you land 3 Sunstone scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 simultaneously. This will offer a prize of 5x your bet. Once active, the Sunstone will spin to reveal an Extra Scatter symbol, after which it stops. The Extra Scatter symbol can be any symbol except the wild, Pyramid, and Sunstone symbols. The Extra Scatter symbol will pay according to the symbols on the paytable. You cannot reactivate more free spins in this feature.
The Aztec Idols RTP is pegged at 96%, which is the average standard RTP for slot games. The volatility is in the high region, which will offer big wins that take time to land.
