The ancient civilisations of the Aztecs is the inspiration for Aztec Princess, an online slot created by the developer Play ‘n Go. The Aztecs were an ancient society that resided in the jungles of central Mexico for generations, and their immeasurable riches have provided the topic and imagery for this video slot, which focuses on jungle wildlife and the Aztec Princess herself.
Aztec Princess plays out over a total of 5 reels and 20 paylines, and offers 2 unique bonus features. As well as wild and scatter symbols, this slot contains both a free spins feature and a Pick Me bonus game, in which players can win credits based on the mystery symbols they choose to reveal.
Game Play, Graphics and Themes
The Aztec Princess slot by Play ‘n Go is set against an elaborate background that resembles the stone carvings of the Mayans, and chiselled stone dragons flank the reels at either side. Green leaves and vines peek from the top of the screen, and the game’s pay lines are studded with jewels.
The reels of the slot resemble a patterned stone tablet, and on them is a selection of detailed reel symbols that includes jungle animals, Aztec artefacts and more. Even the playing card symbols appear as though they have been carved from stone to add to the theme of the game’s design.
Symbols on the Reels
Players of Aztec Princess will find a variety of symbols on the slot’s reels, including higher valued symbols like jaguars, brightly coloured tree frogs, eagles and alligators. The lower valued symbols in the game are the playing card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A, all of which have been cleverly designed to match the Mayan overtones of this slot.
Wilds, Scatters and Bonus Symbols
The wild symbol in the Aztec Princess slot is the golden Aztec medallion, which can substitute all other symbols except for the scatter and bonus symbols, assisting to create extra winning combinations across the paylines.
The Aztec Princess herself serves as the slot’s scatter symbol, and landing 3 or more of these scatters anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins feature.
Aztec Princess also contains bonus symbols, which come in the form of 3 Aztec carved skulls with jewels for eyes. Landing 3 of these skulls on the reels will trigger the game’s Pick Me feature.
Pick Me Bonus Feature
To trigger the Aztec Princess Pick Me bonus feature, players must land at least 3 bonus skull symbols anywhere on the reels in the base game. When this happens, players will be redirected to an Aztec temple where they must choose from a selection of mystery skulls in order to reveal a prize. Each of the grey, bronze, silver and gold skulls will award a different amount of credits when selected.
Aztec Princess Free Spins Feature
If players land 3 or more Aztec Princess scatters across the reels the free spins feature will begin, and players will be awarded 10, 15 or 20 free spins for landing 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, respectively. The free spins feature can also be retriggered by landing 3 or more scatters during the feature.
