Aztec Blaze Slots

Pragmatic Play's Aztec Blaze is a 5-reel, 20-payline video slot that travels south from the Rio Grande to what is now known as southern or central Mexico. It features a variety of features such as free spins, progressive jackpots, and a bonus buy-in. The game's name refers to the Aztec Empire's colourful past.

Theme & Design

The first look at Aztec Blaze caught the attention of many fans of ELK Studio's previous slot, Coba. Although it wasn't as visually rich, both studios have managed to create an attractive depiction of each civilization.

In Aztec Blaze, the game features intricate carved stone detailing on the grid, as well as various depiction of animals that are basking in golden glow. The visuals are also accompanied by a well-designed soundtrack.

Slot Setup

The game is available on various devices, such as smartphones and tablets. It can also be triggered by the Ante Bet, which can increase the bet by 60% when free spins are awarded. The RTP of Aztec Blaze is 96.5%, which is the same whether you play it normally or use the Ante Bet. The game is characterized by a highly volatile and complex matrix, with 25 fixed pay lines.

The eight pay symbols appear on the reels. When three or more of these symbols land on the adjacent reels, they trigger a win. The first four are card ranks, which have a value of up to 1.4x the bet, and these are followed by four high-pay animal symbols. These symbols can award up to 8x the stake on a five-line winning line. Wilds also appear on all of the reels, except for the free spins feature.

Features

The Aztec Blaze Colossal Symbols are the first feature that's up for inspection. In the base game, this symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for the wilds. When a win occurs, the game switches to a new mode called "respins." This feature increases the levels of the game after every subsequent spin.

Level 1 - The Colossal symbols appear on the first, second, and third reels. They can randomly stop on the succeeding lines.

Level 2 - The Aztec Blaze Colossal Symbols appear on the 3, 4, and 5 reels. They can also randomly stop on the other 2, 3, and 5 lines. All wins are multiplied by two.

Level 3 - The size of the Colossal symbols varies depending on the line. They can appear on the first, second, third, and fourth reels. All wins are multiplied by two.

Level 4 - The Colossal symbols appear on the fourth, fifth, and sixth reels. They can also randomly stop on the other 2, 3, and 4 lines. All wins are multiplied by two.

Level 5 - The Colossal symbols appear on the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh reels. They can randomly stop on the succeeding lines. All wins are multiplied by two.

Level 6 - The Colossal symbols appear on the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh reels. They can also randomly stop on the other 2, 3, and 4 lines. All wins are multiplied by two.

Free Spins

The free spins feature is triggered when two or more scatters appear on the first and sixth reels. It lasts until no winning combinations are seen five times. During the free spins, the level of progression is continuously kept between lives.

When the Ante Bet is turned on, players start with six lives if the free spins feature is triggered. They can also buy the free spins round for 60 times their bet. Free spins cannot be purchased while the Ante Bet is turned on.
