Venture deep into the dense jungle in search for vast reel riches on the slot from iSoftBet. Aztec Gold Megaways will take you to Mesoamerica on a treacherous expedition to find an ancient temple and the treasures within. Cascading reels, reactive wins, a random feature and a bonus game, where three fixed jackpots are up for grabs, can lead to wins of up to 19,200 times your bet.
Aztec Gold Megaways is a cascading video slot with six reels, two to seven rows and up to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can venture into the Mesoamerican rainforest on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has medium to high volatility with an RTP of 96%.
Courtesy of the licensed Megaways engine, no two spins are the same as the number of ways to win is randomly determined at the start of a new spin sequence. The game will randomly select between two and seven pay symbols for each reel, creating anything from 64 to 117,649 win ways. Any win will set off a chain reaction, which will see the winning symbol blocks crush to make room for new symbols to tumble into place and potentially create more winning combos. The process continues as long as a win occurs after a cascade. All wins are accumulated and paid once a spin sequence ends.
Dense jungle is in the background of the game window that is held within an ancient Aztec temple. The displays for the current number of Megaways and the three fixed jackpots tower above the reels in gold-encased frames. Dangerous creatures such as jaguars and snake dominate the reels while a tribal soundtrack accompanies the usual reel and win count noises.

The pay symbols start at the low end with the usual card royals from 9 through to A, awarding 0.8x to 1.75x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by eagles, snakes, jaguars and Aztec god statues at the high level. Hit six across the reels to win 2.5x to 50x your stake. The wild symbol appears on reels two to five only and substitutes for all regular pay symbols. A tribal Sun Disc acts as the bonus symbol.
iSoftBet is the latest to join the evergrowing list of game studios who have signed a licence agreement with Big Time Gaming for the use of their trademarked Megaways engine. Surpassing a dozen providers is a testament to the immense versatility and popularity of the slot concept as each and everyone releases games with their own creative ideas for reel modifiers, random features and bonus rounds. Time to take a closer look at what iSoftBet has included on Aztec Gold Megaways.
Well, not much really as there is really just one feature that however can pack quite a punch. While you can hit sizeable wins in the base game due to the sheer amount of possible win ways, the main potential for mega wins is clearly in the Aztec Gold Cash Respin feature. You will need minimum five Sun Disc bonus scatters in view at the end of the round to trigger the bonus game. A random feature can activate on any spin in the base game to add more scatters to the reels and increase your chances of triggering the bonus.
Once in, you will get three Respins to start your quest for the Aztec treasures. All triggering scatters will be locked in place and any further landing will turn sticky too and reset the Respin counter to three. Each scatter will display a coin win or one of the three fixed jackpots – Mini at 30x, Major at 100x and Mega at 1,000x your total bet.
Filling a reel with sticky scatters will activate a multiplier that will be applied to all wins from that reel. The multipliers are based on how many symbol positions are on the respective reel. Possible choices are x3, x4, x5, x6 or x7. Once you run out of respins or have filled the entire screen with sticky scatters, all prizes will be multiplied where applicable and added together before being paid in one amount.
Well, there you go, yet another interesting alternative if you are a Megaways fan. The game is rather simple yet still offers solid slotting action that comes with the game engine. The bonus game does not trigger easily as you will need five scatters in view but it has that huge win potential of 19.200 times your bet. A good first attempt from iSoftBet that lets us wait with anticipation as to what else they can come up with.
