We may have just missed the Aztecs, by about 500 years or so, but we can still interact with them via this stunningly entertaining slot.
Azteca Gold Slot is an innovative slot, showing us some of the best of Aztec architecture and culture. Developed by MetaGU, the game is rated highly by players due to its Fortune Wheel and Free Drops features.
There is a progressive jackpot variant of this game available in places too.
How to play
Essentially, Azteca Gold Slot is a five-reel slot featuring three rows and ten fixed paylines. Via Azteca Gold’s opaque reels players observe a taking scene featuring degrading Aztec ruins being steadily returned to nature.
That narrative is fascinating, but for proper slot players it’s all about the game mechanics. All the symbols in Azteca Gold Slot relate of course to the Mesoamerican culture from the post-classic period, as befits the title, which include artificial representations of numerous different animals such as birds, fish and snakes.
One of the masks depicted is a Wild and it stands in for all other masks which together form winning combinations. The exceptions to this are the jackpot, scatter and bonus symbols.
Azteca Gold Slot Bonus Features

If a player lands five of the jackpot symbols anywhere on the screen, the Azteca Gold Slot jackpot is claimed which leads to a win of 5000 x your total stake!
