Aztec Falls is a Microgaming video slot in partnership with Northern Lights Gaming.
We can’t remember the last time when Microgaming released a slot game of their own.
Be that as it may. Aztec Falls sees us heading to the realm of the Aztecs again.
The Aztecs were Native American people that dominated northern Mexico. Their famous city was Tenochtitlan.
Aztec Falls slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines.
There’s a Jackpot Wheel that draws its inspiration from a Pinchinko-style Coin Drop Bonus.
Moreover, the Coin Drop Bonus offers 1 of 4 jackpots. There’s a gamble option as well which you can use to improve your jackpot.
The Mega Jackpot is the game’s top cash price that pays 5,000x your stake. We’re not too clued up as far as slot machines go in land casinos.
What we do know is that Aztec Falls is the sequel to the shabby Niagara Falls. The Pachinko matrics randomly drop a number of coins.
You can play Aztec Falls at any secure online real casinos that pay slot wins within 30 mins. Bets per spin start at $0.20 up to a maximum of $40.
Therefore, if you play the max bet, you can potentially win $200,000. The volatility of Aztec Falls is medium variance. Which matches the size of the jackpot.
The RTP or average return to player percentage of Aztec Falls is 96.08%. For a medium variance online slot, we expected better.
Our US players can sink their teeth into RTG’s Hyper Wins. The slot machine offers a 50,000x jackpot at the best legal casinos online in the USA.
The symbols on the Pichincko style reel grid are the cards from J to A. They also have that ornate jade look.
While the high-value symbols are different Aztec masks. The other symbols are the Wilds and the Golden Pyramid Scatters.
The Wild subs symbols adjacent to it in a winning combo except the scatter. When 5 of them land on the reels they offer a payout of 10x.
When the Coin Symbol appears on the 5th reel it triggers the Coin Drop Feature.
Keep in mind that you’ll trigger the feature in the base game. A large coin rolls towards the center of the grid. Hopefully, it drops into the dark hole.
You’ll notice that the slot’s screen looks like a Pachinko-style game. The coin crashes into pins before it lands in the Bonus Slot.
Now, the coin randomly activates one of the following features:
You can win one of four fixed jackpots via the Jackpot Wheel. They are the Mini, Minor, Super, and Mega Jackpots.
Their respective cash values range from 30x, 200x, 1,000x, to 5,000x. If you want to risk your jackpot for a bigger one.
You can choose to gamble it on a Wheel with a segment of Red and Green.
If the marker lands in the green area. You’ll move on to the next jackpot for an even bigger cash prize.
What happens when the marker lands in the red zone? You’ll receive a random cash prize, and of course, the feature ends.
You can trigger the Cash Fall Bonus on any random spin in the base game.
Coins drop down the Pachinko matrix from the top of the reels for prizes of up to 10x.
Furthermore, the coin values combine for an even bigger win.
You’ll trigger the Free Spins feature when 3 Golden Pyramid scatters appear.
They only award 5 free spins which are meh.
A random wild stacked totem also pops onto the reels on each free spin. It covers an entire reel which stays on the reels until the free spins feature ends.
The free spins feature also doesn’t retrigger for any extra free spins.
We really did not enjoy playing this slot even with free credits.
It’s one of those games that felt like chewing on wool. We won the Mini Jackpot and gambled it a few times for small wins.
The biggest payout we received was 30x our stake. Playing the slot felt like watching a ping pong ball bounce up and down.
It’s not often we’re at a loss for words when it comes to slot games.
Aztec Falls is in all probability the worst slot release of 2022 so far.
Granted, the Pachinko style element is innovative and might catch on in other slot games.
The base game looks like a convoluted mess and the free spins feature doesn’t offer much. The maximum cash prize you can win here is only 1,000x.
Consider yourself extremely fortunate if you win anything substantial.
Besides, the top cash prize of 5,000x only comes via the Jackpot Wheel.
As a parting shot, it’s just a janky tedious, boring online slot.
Lucky Durian from Habanero is a far better alternative than Aztec Falls.
Stacked Wilds and Locked Respins pitch often and the jackpot is 4,375x.
