Aztec Gems has three reels with three rows and five paylines that are fixed so cannot be removed or any more added. The South American Aztecs theme is covered in gold surroundings on an Aztec design whilst waterfalls lap at the edges of the screen.
Aztec Gems has seven symbols, gems to be precise, of various shapes, sizes and colours - namely green, red, purple, light blue, blue, dark red and yellow.
The game's wild is represented by a stylised golden Aztec mask that replaces all other symbols to aid in forming winning combinations. Wilds, like other symbols, can appear stacked on the reels.
Although the graphics of a yellow stonework setting in an Aztec city are impressive, the real winner of Aztec Gems if the bonus fourth reel that spins up with win multipliers.
Players who land additional wild icons will then complete extra lines and whilst here no free spins or side game in Aztec gems, the multipliers are awarded with an x15 payout!
Bonus Features of Aztec Gems
As mentioned already, the fourth reel is where it all happens in Aztec Gems. The fourth reel spins with the spin of the standard reels; however, it will always land on a multiplier value ranging between an x1 or x15. Any wins on that particular spin will be subject to the multiplier value highlighted in the turquoise box.
Aztec Gems is an appealing online slot that makes every spin rich with the expectation of winning lines and multipliers being awarded. It seems very bright and colourful, although more Aztec related symbols wouldn't have gone amiss, as the various gems that appear here could have come from anywhere.
Still, the gems are the whole purpose of this game. Plus, there’s always the Aztec mask representing as a wild symbol – which always seems to land in almost every spin, assisting in completing lots more winning combinations when it substitutes for any gem symbols.
Players who like to only spin up regular wins without the added complications of side games and bonus rounds will undoubtedly enjoy the Aztec Gems online slot.
