Set on a backdrop of dense jungle, this Aztec Idols slot machine immerses you in the world of the ancient South American civilisations as you go in search of their lost treasures.
And that is pretty much the story of this video slot. You join Riche Wilde, the main man, in the same veins as Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, as he goes searching where no-one has stepped foot for a long time.
On your adventure with these 5 reels and 15 pay lines you’ll come across carved A – 10 symbols covered in ancient scribblings. Then, there’s the higher paying elaborate stone faces, as well as a few special bonus symbols, scatters and wilds.
The Aztec Idols slot theme is done well and, we have to say, is beautifully graphical. The screen is carved from stone with the sort of attention to detail that is reminiscent of the Gonzos’ Quest slot, not just with the background but also the symbols themselves.
It’s not a copy by any means, but it’s certainly inspired by NetEnt graphics. The fact that do it so well is a plus point in our opinion.
Riche Wilde and the Aztec Idols is the full name of this Play’n GO game. And that’s because the intrepid adventurer is the main star of the show. He acts as the wild and helps to provide you with more winning opportunities throughout the base game and free spins.
Rich Wilde is also the highest paying symbol of the lot, so if you find 5 of him across the reels you win a healthy 5000x your line bet. Not bad for a scruffy looking explorer.
But that’s not where this jungle slot comes in to it’s own. The bonus games are where you will win the biggest wins of the game to top up your wallet. Because exploring around the jungles ain’t cheap.
Find 3 of the pyramid bonus symbols on the screen and you will be taken to the Pick the Idol bonus game. Which is pretty self explanatory from the title.
You are presented with shiny golden idols, which you get to pick one at a time to win instant cash prizes. Find the booby trapped idol and you will release a cloud of poisonous gas ending the game.
It’s a simple concept, but can be effective in helping top up your balance if you manage to avoid the gas till your last pick.
We’ve managed to get a decent 50x our total bet here on a few occasion and more is possible.
Find three spinning sunstones anywhere on the five reels and you trigger the Sunstone free spins bonus feature.
The sunstone will then start spinning on screen and it will randomly select an extra scatter to be used within the free spins.
Then the inner wheel will spin locking in the number of free spins. Anything between 10 and 20 usually.
Once that is done you can then start your free spins in the hope of winning big and lining up those 5 wilds.
Or, more likely, get a high paying scatter symbol to increase your chances of some decent returns.
This bonus game is very much a hit or miss. Sometimes we walked away with 20x our bet sometimes in excess of 60x.
As it’s a hard feature to trigger, it would have been nice for some bigger, more consistent, potential returns.
Well, with a low minimum bet of just 0.15, it aims to give all types of players with varying budgets a chance at playing.
It’s RTP is a decent 96.76%, which is pretty high for such a volatile game. But then you need to hit one or the other of the features to get anything decent in your pocket.
The two bonus features are still exciting enough to make you pick Aztec Idols over other slots online and mobile, especially when you see a row of scatters line up in the free spins.
Also the fact that the Aztec Idols mobile slot is just as good to play as the online slot game makes it more accessible than most. Especially as Play’n GO like to cater for Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows users.
So if you are up for an adventure, much like you will find in the Tomb Raider slot, then give Riche Wilde and his Aztec Idols slot game is wonderful for some fun spinning action, wherever you are.Play Now at Guts »
