In 2015, 1x2 Gaming decided to take us into the mystical world of the Aztecs. The ancient civilization guarded its secrets closely, and many of them followed them into the grave as their empire was crushed beneath the colonizing European powers. It offers charming, if simplistic visuals, smooth, small animations, and a soundtrack that made you feel like a proper explorer wandering the jungles. Add the possibility of winning 360x your wager and an RTP of 95.5%, and you’ll have explorers signing up to join your expedition.
The game offers a familiar structure of five reels and three rows, alongside twenty-five flexible paylines, allowing you to turn them on or off to lower your RTP, but allowing you to save some money as a result of that decision. There are several cool, Aztec icons, although they are intermixed with generic playing card symbols.
Play Aztec Secrets
The 5x3 playing field is something that most players will find familiar The aforementioned icons can bring some pretty good pays, especially for five-of-a-kind wins. The highest paying single symbol is the Aztec mask, which rewards a 700 coin win for a five-of-a-kind score. On top of these, there are the special features to consider. One of them is a simple bonus feature, that acts like a Scatter in that it can be activated anywhere, so long as you have three or more of it. It rewards a cash prize, higher than the Aztec Mask.
The second feature is tied down to the actual Scatter, and it rewards ten free spins for three or more regular Scatters. All prizes won while the feature is active are doubled. On top of that, if Scatters follow one of the twenty-five paylines, they can also reward a cash prize.
How to Play
When it comes to Aztec Secrets, it is relatively simple to play. Simply adjust your coin bet, coin value and the amount of active paylines to your liking, and start spinning. As a general rule of thumb, your coin bet will usually be double of the actual cash wager you’re putting down, so use that as a quick guide to see how much you will spend per spin.
You can wager between $0.01 up to $0.40, with the maximum cash bet being $62.5. The biggest jackpot you can win in cash is $22,500.
As with most titles that are mobile focused, there is no Autoplay option offered to the player, even when playing on the desktop version – this is a side effect of platform parity, in which the same user interface is offered to all players.
Strategy & Tips
No matter how you slice it, the features will carry this title. Budget your spending accordingly, and don’t go all out – your spending money needs to last you until the feature activates, and hopefully, you will end up with more than what you started. There’s not much else we can advise you to do here.
Aztec Secrets does have a mobile version, which looks exactly the same as the desktop one. In fact, it’s clear by just looking at the user interface that the game was designed with the policy of mobile first.
