Aztec King megaways
Aztec King Megaways is a Megaways online slot from Pragmatic Play. We’re seeing an influx of Megaways slot releases lately. We might add all of them good. Take, for example, Pragmatic Play’s former belter, Bigger Bass Bonanza. During our testing phase, we ‘won’ $13,200. Regrettably, this was with free credits but it’s a good indication of what the game is capable of.
If we circle back to Aztec King Megaways the theme of the slot is about the Aztecs. They were a Mesoamerican culture that flourished in Central Mexico from 1300 to 1521 AD. In typical Megaways fashion, Pragmatic Play dons the slot with 6 reels and up to 200,704 ways to win.
A friendly warning, the Whizz team rates Aztec King Megaways a 10’er on our slots scale. The volatility is brutal which means you’ll have to grind out the bonuses. Talking of bonuses, Pragmatic Play sweetens the pot with Tumbles, and a Free Spins feature.
Moreover, the winning potential is a crazy 20,000x ($2 million) your stake. The coin betting range of Aztec King Megaways starts with a modest $0.20 per spin. The lowest bet is a great way to test the slots for real money cheaply. High rollers can fire away at the max bet of $100. You’ll find Aztec King Megaways slot in the libraries of our safe and secure online casinos for Canadians.
The payback rate or the RTP of Aztec King Megaways is 96.58%. Well above the industry’s average. Pragmatic Play did not include the hit frequency, based on our play we’d say it’s between 15% to 20%. Players can therefore expect a payout on every 5th to 6th spin. Note, Aztec King Megaways is not available at online casinos for Australians. If you’re an Aussie and you like playing pokies online, check out, Victoria Wild Deluxe from Yggdrasil Gaming.
Since the theme is all about the Aztec’s it’s fitting that the symbols reflect the theme. A forlorn Aztec temple and jungle serve as the backdrop for the reels. The primary symbols on the reels are Toucans, frogs, jaguars, the King, wild and the Pyramid scatter.
Each of the 6 reels contains 7 up to a maximum of 7 symbols. The top section of the reels contains an extra 4 symbols. Moreover, Aztec King Megaways has a horizontal reel. We see a lot in the Megaways slots these days. So, there’s a mish-mash of 7-8-8-8-8-7 that gives you a cool 200,704 ways to win.
Wilds (Aztec King) appear too and they sub adjacent symbols when they form a winning combo. The wild only pitches on the middle four reels. Finally, you’ll catch a winner when 3 or more matching symbols pop onto the reels.
Aztec King Megaways slot comes with a Tumble reel mechanic. If you’re not familiar with the system, it means successive wins are possible. The winning symbols on the grid explode and new ones replace them. That’s the short end of it hopefully you get the idea.
If you’re hunting the big wins or the jackpot of 20,000x, you’ll have to trigger the Free Spins feature. To do so, 4 to 6 Pyramid scatters must appear on the reels in the main game. Interestingly, this Free Spins feature offers you the following based on the scatter amount:
Now, if you catch 6 scatters you can pick a free spin option. Whereas 4 and 5 scatters offer you the same multipliers. You can also snag 5 to 15 free spins, or 9 to 19 free spins. The good news for you is that the Tumble feature works its magic in the free spins.
In other words, every Tumble that occurs increases the multiplier by 1x. More importantly, the multipliers don’t reset in the free spins. This is excellent because the free spins almost guarantee you a decent cash prize. You can also re-trigger the free spins bonus for extra free spins.
To make our slot reviews more authentic we play the slots online for cash or for free. There’s nothing novel about the theme and mechanic hence we played it with free credits. Over the course of 200 spins at an average stake, the Tumble mechanic is better than average.
It comes to fruition in the free spins which we finally triggered after 125 spins. Our 4x scatters awarded us 23 free spins with a 1x multiplier. The biggest multiplier we got was 8x and the payout was 45x. Obviously, we can’t say that we’re happy with the win. Taking into account the number of spins it took us to trigger the free spins. The Tumbles didn’t blow us away either.
Aztec King Megaways is not the best Megaways slot from Pragmatic Play. Especially, if we compare it to sluggers like Quickspin’s, Big Bad Wold Megaways. The truth is it all boils down to the free spins feature which can be hard to trigger.
Even the free spins won’t guarantee you a big win to smile about. That’s if you receive the free spins option with 1x multiplier. Yes, it’s a totally different story if you trigger it with 6 free spins because the 10x multipliers on each free spin are magic.
