Aztec Idols Theme and Design

The game’s full title is Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols, and it is based on the lost and ancient South American culture of the Aztec. People have been fascinated by this world and by searching for its remaining treasures, and the well-designed game also alludes to this.

The reels look as if they are built into the walls of a ruined temple, and event the lower-value regular playing card symbols are embellished with ancient script. The higher-value regular icons also continue the theme, and come in the form of 4 different decorative masks.

The soundtrack of tribal music and drumming and the other authentic land-based Slots machine sounds will immerse you even further. Superb graphics and animations complete this high-quality game.

Game Basics

The Slot features 5 reels and 15 possible paylines. Its betting range is 0.10 to 100 per spin, so it should suit most player budgets. Its theoretical RTP is 96.65% and its regular game boasts a top Jackpot of 5000x the initial stake. If you want to practice and get familiar with the game before playing for real money there is also a Free Play mode, and you can also activate the AutoSpin mode when you’re really busy.

Special Features

The Riche Wild character is the wild symbol in the game, and can stand in for any regular image to complete winning paylines. The only 2 symbols that Riche can’t stand in for are the Sunstone scatter and the Golden Pyramid bonus symbols.

The Sunstone scatters can appear anywhere on Reels 1, 3 and 5. When they all appear is a single spin they activate the Free Spins feature. A central sunstone will spin, to determine how many freebies you’ll get and to determine which symbol will act as an extra scatter in the Free Spins round. The extra scatter should help to boost your winnings, though the Free Spins can unfortunately not he retriggered.

A set of 3 Golden Pyramids on Reels 3, 4 and 5 triggers another mini game. You are taken to a screen featuring several idols, and you need to pick them to reveal cash prizes. When you find the idol containing the poison gas, the round is over and you are returned to the main game.

Gamble Feature

As a final flourish, Aztec Idols allows you to try and double or quadruple your money on any winning round. If you choose to play the Gamble Feature, you need to predict the colour or suit of a playing card to increase your payout by 2 or 4 times. Guessing wrongly means you forfeit everything, which is risky but also adds a real air of excitement. It’s definitely worth trying at least a few times.
