The Aztecs were a mysterious people with the Montezuma slot they have properly captured this atmosphere. With sounds of birds and crickets it is as if we are in the jungles of Central America. Are you going to find the treasure of the Aztecs? Somewhere in the jungle there is a mysterious wheel, it looks a bit like an Aztec calendar stone. When you rotate it you will receive free spins and perhaps you will get that coveted treasure..
Our first spins in the jungle ..
What we first noticed are the beautiful graphics of the Montezuma slot. We see the jungles of Central America in the background and in the middle the matching Aztec symbols. The symbols consist of both pictures and letters. During each spin we hear jungle music to get into the right atmosphere. Once we win a prize there is a clear signal that lasts while the money is piling up. The symbols on which we won a prize are blinking. What makes this slot different is that we can see a clear illustration at the top, on what line we have won a prize. Montezuma was developed by WMS Williams, this brand can also be found in different land based casino’s around the world.
Feature and Wild symbols
The Montezuma slot is known for the fact that it doesn’t give out a lot of small prizes but mainly large prizes on a lower frequency. We have experienced this during our review in fun mode. With the spinning wheel feature we won 76x our bet! This was mainly due to the fact that the bonus feature was extended 5x. Often we got 2 or 3 bonus feature symbols while we were already playing in the bonus game.
The bonus feature of Montezuma slots works as follows: When you turned 3 feature symbols, you will see a turning wheel with numbers. The numbers indicate the amount of free spins you win: 3 up to 10, 15 or even 25! It stops at a number and you will go to the bonus round, when you click start your first free spin round is activated. Each round also displays a spin multiplier on top of the screen. It contains the numbers 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x. When you stop at the number 5x, your prize of that round is multiplied by 5x.
Of course you want stay as long as possible in this bonus round. With some luck, you spin the feature symbols again. 2 or more feature symbols in the bonus round means that you will receive some more free spins. The upper multiplier determines how many free spins you will get. We managed to extend the bonus round with 5x, which resulted in a payout of 76x our bet!
