Great Aztec Review
iSoftBet has had a few attempts at manifesting their original Aztec idea over the last couple of years with Aztec Gold Megaways—plus ‘an extra’ gold version of the same game—and Aztec Gold Mines. All of these games have a very similar feel with almost identical graphics and characters.
The last attempt was an intriguing pick-and-click slot where you could cash out before going too far and losing your prize and the version before that had the awesome Megaways addition.
We were excited to see where they might take this idea next given that not many producers are bold enough to flog the same idea 3, 4 or 5 times—we’ve lost count—in 3 years. Unfortunately, the design has seemingly slipped backwards and rather than making any exciting changes, it just feels a little watered-down.
The design team must have had an easy task on their hands as the brief was, presumably, to slightly upgrade a few of the graphic elements, freshen things up a bit and add a different theme tune.
You do get a small insight into the design capabilities of this software producer as the Aztec Magic modifier appears, and the background has received a slight upgrade with some animated touches.
Mystery symbols and wild symbols will keep the flame burning brightly throughout the base game, but it won't come as any surprise to hear that the re-spins feature is where you want to be.
The second chance modifier and the boost both add an extra layer of excitement and go some way towards making amends for the slight lack of originality. You can also take part in this adventure on a range of devices including both Apple and Android products.
A 2,500x top prize isn’t going to be enough to attract the high rollers so it’s likely that fans of the occasional flutter with a modest budget will be more up for the Great Aztec challenge.
The medium volatility should show your bankroll some respect throughout and hopefully, some large wins will appear to push you into the black.
As a one-off, Great Aztec would have felt just fine and there would be no hard feelings; however, you will feel a little short-changed if you were eagerly awaiting this revamp of an original idea. Although we should add that there's still every chance that some handsome wins could come your way, so maybe we’re being a little overly critical?
