Great Aztec

by iSoftBet

Great Aztec from iSoftBet is one in a fairly long line of revamps of the original Aztec Gold game that enjoyed instant success.

This time around, the game still benefits from the hold & win feature that was added during the last overhaul and has a couple of powerful modifiers to back it up. This 5x3 slot can offer re-spins, mystery symbols, wild symbols, a feature boost and a 2,500x max win.

Great Aztec Features

iSoftBet enjoyed a lot of success with one of this game’s predecessors, Aztec Gold Megaways, and it was hugely popular because of the Megaways mechanic.

There wasn't a hell of a lot to write home about on the bonus front and with this latest upgrade to the game, all they’ve done is remove the Megaways and haven’t replaced it with anything else. There is a small Aztec Magic modifier but it doesn't really go far enough in our opinion.

Aztec Magic

This modifier comes in a few different formats throughout the game and can prove to be incredibly useful at the right time. You will know when it's happening because the main character appears like an omnipotent deity and unleashes one of his special powers upon the reels.

The first benefit you might feel is the addition of mystery symbols. The symbols will land across the screen and reveal themselves to be one of the paying symbols. Up next, you get a chance to enter the re-spin bonus even if you only hit 3 scatter symbols, which aren't enough. This is a second chance to trigger an additional scatter symbol.

The final modifier is a boost after entering the re-spins bonus. Your scatter symbols can get an enhancement to increase their values before the game starts.

Aztec Gold Cash Respins

The main bonus in this game is a hold and win feature. Any sun disc scatter symbols that take you into the round will remain in place and you will receive 3 re-spins, and any further sun discs that land will replenish your re-spins back to 3. If you hit 3 spins in a row without seeing a sun disc, the bonus is over.

At the end of the round, all of the multiplier amounts that are shown on the sun discs will combine to create your final prize. It is possible to land a little extra by completing an entire reel of sun discs for an x3 multiplier or an entire row for an x5 multiplier. Don't forget that any of the 4 jackpot amounts can also appear at this time.

Cash Respins

4 scatter symbols will reward you with 3 re-spins in the Aztec Gold Cash Re-spins game. Land another sun disc scatter symbol and your re-spins are replenished. But if you fail to hit 3 in a row, then it is game over.

This is your chance to witness some top modifying action thanks to mystery symbols, second chance scatter symbols and a scatter symbol boost. Any one of them could add up to a fantastic win or even entry to the bonus game.

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.

Win Potential

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.

Our Verdict

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?
