Wild Aztec Pokie Review
The great Aztec nation once ruled the entire territory of Central America. Although their Empire eventually collapsed, people still associate Aztec warriors with great adventures – an excellent atmosphere for any game. Tales and legends about ancient civilizations have always been a popular setting for movies, comics and pokies too.
Set around the glorious Aztec nation and their relics and iconography, Wild Aztec pokies is all packed with symbols such as golden necklaces, chieftain’s feathers, high playing cards and more. The entire scenery is designed to bring a player back in time to the height of the Aztec civilization. We also liked well-incorporated themed sound effects that kept our attention while the action was at its peak.

How to play
Wild Aztec is available in 20, 30 and 40-line configurations, where the last one is fixed only. The minimum bet amount goes as low as 30 cents, while the maximum bet amount heavily depends on the number of playing lines.
The first thing we’d like to stress out is a very potentially lucrative bonus rounds: in particular, there’s a free spins round that often brings you full reels packed with wild symbols. This is a great feature that makes it very easy to win hundreds of times what you initially put into the machine.
The trick is that reel 5 is always all-wilds, and during the Mystery Event it will copy and paste onto the other reels—so there’s a potential for some hefty winnings. This is called the Xtra Reward Rule and reveals the full potential of this game. Kick off the Free Spin bonus and watch the Wild reel sprint like a jaguar across the playfield, copying itself along the way.
As some other Konami’s pokies, the Wild Aztec also features a scatter symbol, brave and fearful Jade Warrior. Once you manage to collect no less than 3 scatters, the pokie machine will award you with some free spin bonuses. There are no 4-of-the kind winnings, because the 5th reel is always wild.
The game has a pretty low paytable, so when you wager 60 cents per line, per spin, you can eventually earn a maximum payout of $200. We talk here about playing all 40 lines and full screen wilds. Probably due to the fact that the 5th reel is a giveaway, 5-of-a-kind pays are lower than with some other Konami titles.
Designed to bring you back in time of ancient civilizations, the Wild Aztec pokie machine shares the appearance with some other Aztec-themed games, while it holds some unique features. We liked the game’s overall design and sound effects, as well as popular Konami features such as the Xtra Reward Rule and Mystery Events.
As a disadvantage, we will always point at low-paying symbols, but there are Wilds and Scatters that can start bonus rounds and free spins, so you won’t get back home empty-handed. Also, this is a pokie machine with a pretty low paying table, but that’s why beginners and recreational players will here find a lot of fun.
