Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways Review
Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways is a megaways game from iSoftBet that has not yet been released. However, we have enough information and a demo variant to tell you everything about this game. It is a sequel to the almost eponymous game ‘Aztec Gold Megaways', which was released about a year ago (late 2019). With this variant iSoftBet hopes to create an even more fun game, and below you will find out whether they succeeded.
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be approximately 96.00%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The game looks quite busy and the theme (the Aztecs) is well reflected in the background and in the music. The playing field consists of 6 reels and on top you can see from left to right: The number of applicable megaways, the 3 Jackpots, and the title of the game. To the left of the playing field you will find the ‘Buy a Bonus' feature and the Extra Gold option. On the other side you can determine your bet and you will find the ‘spin' button, while other information is displayed at the bottom.
How does Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways work?
It may not surprise you that the maximum number of megaways in one turn is 117,649. This only occurs when the full 7 symbols appear on all 6 reels! In these ways you can form combinations, all of which must start from the first roll. You actually need at least 1 of the same symbol on the first three reels for almost all symbols to make a combination.Only for the best paying symbol (male character) 2 will also suffice for a combination. In addition to these combinations, you can also unlock certain features and the bonus round, with which you can win great prizes. We will go into more detail about the features below. ISoftBet also uses a betting range for this game with a minimum of 0.20 euros and a maximum of 20 euros. Once you have chosen this, it is a matter of luck and hope for great prizes!
The Symbols & Payouts
An overview with a number of categories of symbols and some necessary information follows below:
- The basic symbols consist of 6 candle symbols, namely 9 to A. These low paying symbols will give you between 0.5x and 1.75x your bet for a 6 of a kind.
- The premium symbols consist of a bird of prey, snake, tiger, and a male Aztec. for this you get 2x, 2.5x, 10x, and 50x your bet back for 6 of the same.
- Mystery symbol only appears if the feature is activated.
- The wild symbol can substitute for all symbols except the bonus symbol. However, it can only land on the middle four reels.
- You need enough of the bonus symbol to clear the bonus round.
This feature is always applicable if you make a combination. The symbols of the winning combination will give way to new symbols, allowing you to form even more combinations in the same turn.
Can just appear out of the blue, placing any number of megaways across the reels. These will then change into the same symbol, making it easy to form large combinations.
The name already suggests it somewhat, and this feature ensures that the maximum number of megaways of 117,649 is included. However, this feature may appear randomly and you have no influence on it.
Sun Disc Boost
This feature also appears randomly and ensures that additional scatter symbols are present on the reels. This increases the chance that these will eventually end up on the playing field. The bonus round is therefore even closer!
Extra Gold Button
This feature ensures that you pay 25% extra of your bet every time, but you already clear the bonus round with 4 bonus symbols instead of 5.
Buy a Bonus feature
You have this feature in two different variants and will cost you 100x or 150x your bet! To clear the normal bonus round immediately you have to pay 100x your stake, and to buy Max Megaways Cash Respins you pay 150x your stake. With the latter option you play on the maximum playing field with 117,649 megaways.
Aztec Gold Respins Feature
You must collect at least 5 sun disc symbols to unlock the bonus round. You must collect at least 5 sun disc symbols to unlock the bonus round. All other symbols will then disappear and give way to individual reels. As you may know the respins features, you will start with 3 respins. These are each replenished if you land a scatter symbol somewhere during these respins. Earlier in this review you already read something about the so-called jackpots: Mini, Major, and Mega. You can also win these prizes during the bonus round and pay you 30x, 100x and 1000x your bet respectively.
Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 20,000x your bet, and the game scores 4/5 stars!
Of course, the predecessor was already a success, so the quality is guaranteed. However, this game has a lot of features and a bonus round with jackpots. Thanks to all these extras, we ended up with such a good score!
