Aztec Gems Slots is everything a fan of Pragmatic Play would expect – its appearance excels with superb animation and a gorgeously detailed landscape that depicts the lush jungles of the ancient kingdom during nighttime. In the background a couple of glorious waterfalls are filling a shiny pond. The 3 reels and 3 rows themselves look stunning enough. The frame surrounding the symbol positions looks like its made out of solid gold with teal stone decorations here and there. A fourth reel is also present and its positions aren’t occupied by symbols but by multiplier values. The maximum number of bet coins, with which a spin can be entered is 10 and coin sizes can be as small as 1 cent and as large as 50 cents. That makes for a maximum possible bet of 25 dollars, which is equal to 500 dollars in credits.
There are 8 symbols in the game’s paytable and all of them have a single winning combination of 3 matching symbols. The highest paying one is that of the wild, which is actually a golden medallion with a carved face wearing a crown. The gold is occasionally ornamented with green gems, similarly to the design of the main screen. The wild pays 125 dollars for its combination. The rest of the symbols are all precious stones in various shapes with a golden frame surrounding them. The triangular red gem pays 100 dollars, the violet octagon gem grants 75 dollars, the pentagon blue gem brings 60 dollars, the circular green stone delivers 50 dollars, the square red stone gives 40 dollars, the colorful blue pentagon gem provides players with 25 dollars and the triangular golden gem awards 10 dollars.
The wild of the game is not only the best-paying symbol of the game; it also has the ability to replace the rest of the symbols in the game in order to complete potential winning combinations. The only bonus feature in the game is connected with the special fourth reel, which is located on the main screen to the right of the 3 main reels. This reel features multiplier values instead of symbols and it will spin alongside the main reels. Three values will be displayed on the fourth reel at the end of the spin and one of them will be randomly selected to affect the earnings made through the spin.
Aztec Gems is a thoroughly enjoyable slot experience, which has it all – great looks, beautifully realized atmosphere and most importantly - the freedom to risk big and play it safe at the same time.
