Discover the secrets of the ancient civilisation in Aztec Falls, the online slot from Microgaming in conjunction with Northern Lights Gaming. With a design that looks strikingly similar to a bricks and mortar game, Aztec Falls offers players the chance to collect real cash prizes. There are four separate prize pots that can be won, with a maximum possible payout of x5000.
This is the second game in this series from Northern Lights, with the previous title being Niagara Falls. This slot moves further away from being a simple simulation of a typical land casino game, and instead offers a more developed theme for players to enjoy.
The reels cover a 5x3 grid which includes 20 traditional paylines. Betting starts with a min bet of 0.2 per spin and can be increased up to the maximum of 40.00. The volatility is medium. Although every playing session is different, with this set of statistics, players should find prizes arrive reasonably frequently.
If you can imagine what an online slot machine would have looked like if it were created by the Aztecs, you’ll get an idea of the design of this game. It’s part stone relic, part traditional slot machine and part a modern online game! The combination is intriguing - and there’s more going on than first meets the eye!
The low pays are made up from the playing card royals, while the premium symbols include three different totem mask carvings, plus the logo of the game.
A wild helps to line up more wins with its ability to substitute for any of the regular symbols in the paytable.
The coin is a special symbol which can land on reel five. When this happens, you’ll unlock the Coin Drop feature. If you look closely, overlaid on the reels is a pachinko grid. The coin will make its way through this pachinko layout, gradually falling into one of the pockets at the base. This could bring you one of several outcomes: nothing, stacked reels, a multiplier or one of the prize pots.
If you land on the latter, you'll be taken to the prize wheel to play. The wheel guarantees one of four separate prize pots can be won: Mini (x30), Minor (x200), Super (x1000) and Mega (x5000). It is possible to gamble your prize pot on the chance to win the next size jackpot up, but there's the chance of losing. If you end up losing, you won't be completely empty-handed, as you'll be awarded a mystery prize instead.
The Cash Fall bonus triggers randomly throughout the gameplay, and is similar to Coin Drop but played with multiple coins. A number of coins will fall through the pachinko matrix, with each one being worth up to x10. Players will get the total of any prizes collected by the coins dropping.
Pyramid scatters can land on reels one, three and five, and if you get all three simultaneously, the free spins bonus unlocks.
Aztec Falls from Microgaming may not look particularly complex, but with unusual features and multiple ways to win, it's a game that could even tempt the Aztecs from beyond the grave!
