Win Multiplier

During gameplay, whenever all symbols from an entire reel are removed as part of a winning Tumble, a Win Multiplier will activate, starting at x1 and increasing by +x1.

At the end of any spin with an active Win Multiplier, the collected Win Multiplier will be applied to the total win for that particular spin. With the next spin, the Win Multiplier will be reset back to x1 for future spins.

Fortunes of Aztec Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters across the reels in the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 12, 15, 20, and 25 Free Spins respectively. The Win Multiplier (if applicable) from the base game will be automatically carried over to Free Spins.

During Free Spins, the Win Multiplier will increase by +x1 each time an entire reel of symbols is wiped out and does not reset between Free Spins.

Landing 3, 4, 5, or 6 Scatters during this time will award an additional +5, +7, +10, and +12 Free Spins respectively.

Fortunes of Aztec: Our Verdict

Fortunes of Aztec looks exactly how we envisioned it. Ancient ruins, waterfalls, and a number of Aztec symbols are all present and accounted for, but what did we make of gameplay?

Fortunes of Aztec isn’t just visually pleasing, but it also grabs our attention in both the base game and Free Spins round thanks to the Win Multiplier feature.

The idea of having to clear an entire reel of symbols in order to activate or increase the Win Multiplier seems a little unreasonable, but you would be surprised by how often it occurs. This feature is only heightened in Free Spins, where the Win Multiplier does not reset between spins.

The Win Multiplier feature, topped off with a max win cap of 10,000x makes Fortunes of Aztec a promising choice for players looking for more than just a bit of fun!
