It’s a good idea not to judge this game by its cover, so to speak, since Aztec-themed releases are hardly anything new. However, Aztec Blaze is a fast-paced and extremely appealing installment from Pragmatic Play, and the graphics will literally grow on you. We’re partial to fast-paced games, and this one runs as smoothly as a dream (not least when you hold down the spacebar to activate the turbo spin mode).
However, you should expect a lot of dead spins between each action, and the reason for this is that each win triggers an indefinite respins feature that can take you up to the 2,000x win cap. The streak respins boost the colossal symbols and increase the win multiplier, and you get more of them with 5 respin lives in the bonus round. This is a game you really have to try, and it captivated us pretty quickly to say the least.
Bonus Features on Aztec Blaze Slot
The 4 premium tier symbols pay out between 4 and 8 times your bet for 6 matches, and you get wild symbols on all reels to complete wins by substituting for payout symbols. You can turn the ante bet option on and off between base game spins, and if you activate it, you will get 1 extra life when the base game respin feature is triggered. However, this will cost you 60% more per spin.
The Respin Mode feature is triggered after each base game win, and you will receive a payout after each respin if you win anything. The respins feature ends when you land a non-winning spin, unless you have activated the ante bet. Each respin increases the size of the colossal symbol, and a multiplier is also introduced after a few respins. It works as follows:
- Respin 1 – 2×2 big colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5.
- Respin 2 – 3×3 big colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5.
- Respin 3 – 4×4 big colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are increased by x2.
- Respin 4 – 4×4 large colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are increased by x3.
- Respin 5 – 4×4 large colossal symbol on reels 2 through 5, and all wins are increased by x5.
- Respin 6 – 4×4 big colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are increased by x10.
If you achieve more than 6 respins, nothing changes in terms of colossal symbol size or multiplier, but the feature can continue indefinitely.
The bonus round is triggered when you land 2 scatters on reels 1 and 6, and you get 5 lives that play out like the respins feature described above. This means that you get unlimited spins until you get 5 spins with no win. The colossal symbol and multiplier level progress are maintained between spins in the bonus round, and landing 2 scatters gives +5 extra spins.
Players outside the UK and all eligible people can buy the bonus round for 60 times the bet. The feature is triggered organically once in 200 spins on average, and you cannot buy the bonus round when the ante bet is activated.
The 200 Spins Aztec Blaze Slot Experience
We had a lot of fun testing Aztec Blaze and have put together a short and edited highlight video for your viewing pleasure, as we usually do. This means you get a taste of the best moments from our 200 spins testing session, and you can watch it all for yourself by clicking the play button below.
Although there were a lot of dead spins in the base game to begin with, there was something about Aztec Blaze that captivated us from the start. The fast pace was one thing, but it felt like the game was challenging us to keep seeing what it had up its sleeve. When the respin level-up system kicked in, we were pretty hooked. The feature provides a visually appealing challenge that makes you want to see how far you can get with it.
The colossal symbol element is admittedly quite similar to Yggdrasil’s Gigablox feature, but Pragmatic Play has used it more cleverly in our humble opinion. Instead of randomly sized blocks, you get a much more engaging progression system, and the 2,000x potential is up for grabs if nothing resets in the bonus round. However, it is a very successful feature, and the payouts are 200x with no multiplier action.
