The action begins once you press the yellow button located in the lower-right corner of the main screen. This will make those six reels and four rows per reel to move. There are also 30 paylines in this game and their number is fixed. In the lower-left corner, you will find the size of your stake. You can change it at any time. The minimum total stake that you can use per turn is €0.2 while the maximum amount is €20.
Next to the stake button is an Auto button. Click on it if you want to trigger auto-play spins. You can choose up to 100 spins and you can also apply a loss limit and/or win limit. In the upper-right corner, there’s a speaker that allows you to control music and sound effects and three white lines that can help you check the paytable.

Before we analyze the paytable of the Aztec Spins slot, let us say that this game lets players make winning combos with three or more matching symbols on a line from left to right and from right to left (both ways). The prize value from one payline is equal to the total stake divided by the number of paylines, multiplied by the symbol multiplier shown in the paytable. Multiple wins can occur at any time and when something like this happens, you will only get the highest win. For instance, the total stake is two. The number of paylines is 20 while the symbol multiplier for five matching icons is 300. The win for one payline is 2/20*300 = 30.
So, the list of basic symbols starts with five playing card icons from 10 to Ace. 10 is the lowest paying symbol that promises a 3, 6, 12, or 24 multipliers for three, four, five, or six 10s on a single line. The value of the rest of the symbols is increasing gradually, with Jacks, Queens, King, and Aces having 36, 48, 60, or 72 multipliers for the highest winning combos respectively.
The list continues with five other icons – an ornament with an eye on it, an Aztec priest, a snake ornament, an idol, and a pyramid. The latter is the highest paying basic symbol that comes with a 45, 90, 180, or 360 multipliers for three, four, five, or six pyramids on a line respectively.
From time to time, an Aztec Wheel symbol can appear in the two middle reels. When it’s fully visible, you will get one spin on the Wheel. This is what the main Aztec Spins bonus feature is all about. With the help of this wheel of fortune, you will get one of three bonuses.
The first bonus is Locked Symbols – specific symbols will be locked on the reels for a guaranteed win. Next, we have the stacking multiplier. You’ll get a 10x multiplier on your next symbol line win. Finally, there’s an Aztec Spins free spins mode. If the arrow on the wheel ends up in the Free Spins position, you will get 12 free spins. What’s great is that the Aztec Wheel feature is awarded more frequently during free spins. Finally, the wheel can point to a Respin, which means that you will get another spin.
When it comes to Aztec Spins RTP, you can expect a decent, slightly above average Return to Player percentage here – 95.71%. Besides that, this game has a high volatility level. In case you didn’t know, this means that you can expect relatively high prizes, but not very often.
