Your trip to the Aztec temple has been going smoothly and you reach a majestic lake with running waterfalls and lush, green vegetation all drawn in a detailed cartoon style. Listen to the sounds of the rainforest along with a tribal drum beat, which gets more intense when you spin as you hope to match some symbols and win! This Pragmatic Play slot might be just 3x3, but there are 4 tantalising jackpots to win, and Money Respins too, so you could end up being the richest individual in the Americas! Aztec Gems Deluxe is a high volatility slot, however, so be prepared to take a couple of risks...
How to play
Of course, being a 3x3 slot, there aren’t too many paylines here. 9 seems to be the standard number of these play boards, so it’s no surprise that there are 9 here too - however, you’ve got a bit of choice in terms of your bet, which can range from 9p to £49.50 depending on how you feel. There aren’t many symbols here, and they’re all the gems mentioned in the title. They definitely look the part and are valuable too, as matching 3 Red Gem symbols can get you £10.56 from just a £1 bet! However, the Wild symbol is the most valuable of all, and 3 of these will give you £30, though it substitutes for all paying symbols too. Last but not least is the Money symbol, and when it appears it will either take a random value from a predefined set or take the Mini or Minor Jackpot values, so you could be in line for some great wins!
The jewel - or gem - in this slot’s crown is the Money Respin feature. It’s triggered when 4 or more Money symbols hit the reels, and begins when all win combinations are paid. The normal symbols will all fade away, with the triggering Money symbols remaining. Then, the normal reels are replaced with special reels containing just Money symbols and empty spaces. You’ll get 3 Respins to begin with, in which all Money symbols that hit the board will stay on until the end of the round - every time one hits, the number of Respins will be reset to 3 again, so you could be here a while! When the feature is finished, the values of all Money symbols will be added together to get you the total winnings.
If you manage to fill every position on the play board with Money symbols, one random feature will then be triggered. This could be a Multiplier of either 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x or 10x being applied to your total Respin win, or a spin on the Wheel of Fortune, which will get you one extra prize on top of the total win. It might be 18x, 28x, 58x, 88x, 108x, 128x, 188x, 288x or 388x your total bet, or one of the 4 jackpots - but you’ll have to spin the Wheel to find out what you’ll be taking home!
