Join our brave archaeologist as she ventures deep into the Aztec pyramid, tackling its many traps and dangers along the way and coming out on top with a big pile of loot as a result. It is a story as old as time, and now you can live through it in this Amatic slot, complete with actual cash prizes! Animations were clearly ahead of their time and some fun special features such as free spins and expanding symbols will make an experience even more enjoyable. But, the ultimate prize that lies within the pyramid is the jackpot worth 500x your total bet.
Book of Aztec is a 5-reel, 3-row game with 10 fixed paylines. Players can set their wagers between $0.10 up to $100 per spin. Press the Spin button and the reels will move to your will revealing a brand new set of icons. Autoplay allows you to enjoy the title without the need of constantly tapping away at the button. Clicking it will keep spinning the playing field until you run out of cash.
Symbols are a mixture of playing card royals and several Aztec-themed icons. 10, J, Q, K and A remain bright and colourful and are joined by golden statues of large cats and fish, a massive Aztec pyramid, a richly decorated book and the pretty archaeologist. The book is both Wild and Scatter.
Collecting three or more Book Scatters in any position will grant you 10 free spins. It is possible to win extra turns by collecting three or more Scatters while the special feature is already playing.
Before the first free spin is played, one icon is chosen from the paytable to be the expanding symbol. It can be any icon except for the Wild/Scatter. When it contributes to a winning combination, it will expand to cover the entire reel it occupies.
Finally, gamblers can use the Gamble option in order to increase their prize. Pressing the button takes you to a separate screen, where you have to guess the card’s next colour. You can guess red or black to double your win or guess the colour and symbol to quadruple your cash prize.
Book of Aztec is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 96.00%. With some lucrative bonuses and interesting gameplay, it has a lot going for it. It is held back slightly by its aged graphics, but you can tell they were ambitious for their time. The highest possible win is 500x your total bet.
