We have been exposed to a whole series of 1 x 2 Gaming slots recently, and this UK-based developer seems to be going through a phase of designing video slots that are themed around sort of classic mythology. This latest slot is in the traditional treasures of the Aztec civilisation theme, and has been called Aztec Secrets. It is a five reel game that offers a maximum jackpot prize of 700 coins in the base game, and a chance to win more in a bonus feature. There are twenty-five lines that cover the reels, and all of these must be active to win the top prize.
This colourful video slot sticks to the Aztec theme using illustrations for icons that have been very beautifully drawn. While we can’t say that we know much about this culture or its symbolic artwork, the symbols used evoke a feeling of authenticity. The user interface is etched onto bones, leaves and a drum, which is pretty cute too.
High paying icons are a very colourful, and highly stylized octopus, the face of a chief wearing a feather headdress, a man kneeling down, a two-headed snake, and a female figure etched inside a stone frame. Additional icons to make up the numbers are card indices – Ace, King, Queen and Jack. The wild is a gold medallion adorned with what might be a death mask. This symbol substitutes for everything but the bonus and scatter icons, whilst also only appearing in the centre three reels.
With twenty five pay-lines to make active, this can run into quite a large max bet. We suggest keeping them all active to maximize chances of winning, a smaller coin size can be selected. Players are able to activate 1 – 25 lines. Between one and five coins per line may be played with a coin bet range of from 0.01, up to 0.50, which means the top wager is 62.50. Auto-bet may be set for between five and one-hundred automatic spins.
There are two bonus features in Aztec Secrets, one is the archetypical free spins game that is triggered by a scatter icon. At least three of these icons need to land on the reels, where winnings are also doubled. The Bonus symbol triggers this feature, but unfortunately we were unable to enter the round. Not to worry, surprises are always very nice too.
