Embark on a journey through time where lost treasures await you in an ancient Aztec city! Aztec Gems by Pragmatic Play is a simple but appealing online slot inspired by traditional 3-reel slots. The game is set against a moonlit jungle scene with animated fireflies and waterfalls on an Aztec-inspired stone reel case that contrasts beautifully with the dark background.
At first glance, Aztec Gems looks like a 4-reel slot, but the game is played on 3 reels with 3 rows and 5 fixed paylines. The last reel is in fact a win multiplier reel that randomly selects a 1x, 2x, 3x, 10x or 15x multiplier that increases your winnings on each spin.
All game symbols are stacked on all reels, creating the potential for bigger wins on every spin. The golden Aztec mask is wild and substitutes for all other symbols to complete winning combinations.
With this simple mechanic at its core, Aztec Gems does not offer any bonus games or free spins. So it’s really up to the Win Multiplier reel to create the excitement and anticipation in this game.
The minimum bet of 0.05 coins appeals to beginners and players with tighter playing budgets, while the maximum bet is 25.00 coins (depending on the betting limits imposed by the casino).
The familiar Pragmatic Play game interface is intuitive and easy to use. Simply click the + or – button to select your total bet size (adjust your coins per line and coin value) and click spin. Autoplay, Quick Spin and Turbo Spin options are also available for a customized gaming experience. The volume of the game sounds can be adjusted to your liking. When you click on the “i” button, the paytable will be displayed.
The game contains 4 high and 3 low symbols, as well as a wild Aztec mask that substitutes for all symbols. While the high and low gem symbols look very similar, they can be easily distinguished by the high symbols being represented by larger gems on a lighter golden background.
As mentioned earlier, Aztec Gems has 3 reels with 5 fixed paylines, and all symbols pay out on adjacent reels from left to right. The maximum payouts for 3 symbols on an active payline are:
- Wild Aztec Mask – 5x total bet.
- High Red Gem – 4x total bet
- High Purple Gem – 3x total bet
- High Blue Gem – 2.4x total bet
- High Green Gem – 2x total bet
- Low Red Gem – 1.6x total bet
- Low Blue Gem – 1x total bet
- Low Yellow Gem – 0.4x total bet
These payout values may seem uninspiring, but remember that the win multiplier can increase your winnings by 15 times.
What is the jackpot (maximum win)?
Aztec Gems is a medium volatility game with a return to player (RTP) of 96.52%. The minimum bet is 0.05 coins per spin and is 25.00 coins, depending on the betting limits set by the casino. The maximum jackpot is 375 times your bet (with a 15x win multiplier).
