The video slot machine game Aztec Millions lives up to its name because you can literally win millions. There is a HUGE progressive jackpot that can be hit along with many other features that make this one of the most popular video slot games played today.
The Aztec Millions video slot is based around the people of central Mexico during the Aztec empire of the 15th century. The empire itself was conquered by the Spanish conquistadors led by Cortes, but the Aztec people and culture has remained.
The Aztec king and queen are represented in this game as well as leopards, an Aztec idol, Aztec Headdress, broach, and much more.
The Aztec king is the wild symbol in this game. The Wild symbol can substitute for any symbol, except the Aztec idol Scatter pay, to help complete a winning combination. The Wild symbols are available on lines 2, 3, and 4. The great thing about them is they can be stacked, so you can have three full reels of all wild cards. Talk about a big win!
The Aztec idol is the Scatter pay bonus symbol. If you receive 3, 4, or 5 symbols you will be rewarded with the Free-Spin bonus. The idol symbols DO NOT have to be on a pay line which is always a good thing because nothing is more frustrating than getting three Scatter pays and not get a bonus because they weren’t on the pay line.
If you receive 3 idol symbols you will get 5 Free Spins, 4 idols will be 15 Free-Spins, and 5 idols you will get 25 Free Spins. During the Free Spin bonus round any Aztec idol symbol you receive will add more Free Spins to your total. All wins during this round are TRIPLED.
The biggest bonus of course is the progressive jackpot that starts at $1,000,000. It is a progressive jackpot so it continues to grow larger and larger every time a machine is played that is part of the progressive. All you have to do is get 5 Aztec Millions symbols on a pay line. Doesn’t sound too hard, but I think the odds of hitting it are a pretty long-shot. However, it is nice to always have the possibility of hitting the progressive as you play because as they say, “Somebody has to win it.”
Slot Machine Characteristics:
Aztec Millions is a 5-reel, 25-pay line game, but the interesting thing about it is there is a fixed bet each player has to make and that is 20 cents per line or $5 per spin. You cannot change your bet. If $5 per spin is too rich for your blood, you have to play a different machine.
Another interesting feature of this game is what they call the Skill Stop Spin Feature. The name implies that there is some type of skill involved in using this feature. I’m not sure this is true, the RNG has already selected the winning combination when the spin button is pushed. I don’t know this for sure, but I would be very surprised if using this feature made a difference in your play. It may alter your result, but I don’t think there is any real skill involved.
Aztec Millions has a lot of unique features and is a very interactive game. The question is, “Can your bankroll afford it?” At $5 per spin the wins can be pretty significant, but a losing streak could do some serious damage to your bankroll. If you are accustomed to betting at this level I would certainly recommend it as a game to play. If it is out of your price range do not play it just to have a shot at the million dollar progressive jackpot.
