Aztec Sun Slots

Lightning Box Games are well known for tailoring their games to specific markets, by tackling the popular Aztec themed slot genre with their new Aztec Sun slot, a game aimed at veteran slot players was the order of the day, which is a pretty discerning market. Jaguar warriors must scale the heights of a great Aztec pyramid temple in this slot to kneel before the golden disc for free spins which contain multiplying stacked wild symbols.

This is a fun slot and a really good entrance into what is a competitive field for the theme, this new online slot game must go head to head with titles such as the Aztec Secrets slot and the Lost Temple slot in order to find a fan following. Can Lightning Box Games do that? Or is this destined to fall into the ancient annals along with the society it celebrates? Grab your explorer’s kit and the relevant history books, the only way to find out is to take a trek round this slot and see what it offers!

Theme

Both the Aztec and Mayan civilisations are well covered by slot game manufacturers, ancient history of any kind always seems to be popular amongst slot gamers and with the associations of legends of lost treasure, who can blame them, it’s an obvious gambling marriage! The natural symbolism works too, it’s hard to think of societies like the Aztecs without thinking about gold, jewels and the hoards buried or offered to their gods.

All this is well represented on the game by the pay icons, the bonus scatter is a classic Aztec pyramid whilst the wild is a giant gold gong in a frame, clearly used for worshiping the win combinations it is capable of completing on this game. Sadly, in addition to the great themed icons on the slot, there is a more than generous selection of playing card icons on the game, given the relatively simple game mechanics we think these could have been given some individual attention. The audio could do with a touch up too, though it’s better than the casino jingles and reel clatter offered by some manufacturers (Novomatic here’s looking at you!).

Gameplay & Features

With a 5x4 reel setup and up to 40 active pay-lines both bankroll management and bet sizing is easy. There’s also up to a 5x bet multiplier available with the coin system to keep the higher stakes players happy, both beginners and veterans alike will find something to suit them here either as a free slot or for real cash play given the decent playstyle customisation available.

The big draw for me on the Aztec Sun slot game is the wild system, in the base game these wilds expand across all four rows each time they hit which is already a pretty generous game mechanic and rather unusually, they also replace the bonus scatter. This alone seriously ups the hit ratio of the free spins bonus round and increases the odds that you will get more than the base amount of spins. However, in the free spins round, these wilds really start to show some serious win potential, not only are they stacked, but they also come with a multiplier value, per reel, of up to x5 at a random award, which means a total of up to x25 available on each spin theoretically.

As for the free spins themselves, you get 10/15 or 25 free games on this slot for 3,4 or 5 scatter symbols respectively, though they can’t be re-triggered the overall pay-out potential mitigates that somewhat. All the bonus action does limit the potential of the base game a little though it’s not as bad as some of the multiple bonus orientated slots out there.

Summary

The Aztec Sun slot comes into its own on mobile devices, it’s terrifically well optimised for most devices and though it plays well no download, on tablet or iPhone is where the sun really shines for this game. The jury is out on whether this displaces better known titles in the genre but, with the game available to a wide range of markets in both free to play and real cash format, the opportunity for it to become a slot legend worthy of the Aztec theme exists.
