Aztec Diamonds is a 5 reel, 30 payline slot from GamesLab and NextGen Gaming. Playable from 30p to £90 a spin on all devices, this Aztec themed game offers you 4 fixed jackpots as well expanding reels and a Free Spin feature where you can win prizes from the diamond symbols.
Aztec Diamonds has a fiery Aztec theme and an enchanting soundtrack – set in the inside of a lava-filled volcano, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 playing cards as well as 4 animal Aztec signs. The bird is the most valuable giving you 16.66 times your stake for 5 on a payline. The idol symbol is the wild and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 – it replaces all symbols bar the scattered volcano and diamond.
When it comes to bonus features, Aztec Diamonds has a Jackpot Diamond feature which played when 6 or more diamonds appear anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with 3 re-spins with the triggering diamonds held in position (i.e. sticky). If a new diamond symbol appears during a re-spin, it’s held in place. When the re-spins finish, each diamond symbol will grant you a cash prize or jackpot.
If you see diamonds in all 4 corner positions, the Jackpot Diamond Expanding Reels feature comes into play – here, the reels expand. The number of re-spins will also reset to 3. You can expand to grid up to 3 times with an 8×4 grid at the end – every diamond appearing in a corner grid position will give you 1 extra re-spin in the 8×4 grid.
Now, you can win the Mini (10 times your stake) and Minor (30 times your stake) jackpots in any grid. The Major (100 times your stake) and Grand (250 times your stake) jackpots will only appear in corner positions in the 8×4 grid only.
Finally, Aztec Diamonds comes with a Free Spin feature which is played when you get 3 or more volcano scatters anywhere in a base game spin – you’ll get 2, 5 or 100 times your stake (for 3, 4 or 5 scatters) as well as 6 free spins. Here, extra volcanoes, diamonds and idols appear on the reels. You can also win 3 additional free spins if you get 3 or more volcanos on a single free spin. More importantly, you can trigger the Jackpot Diamond feature here for huge cash prizes and 4 fixed jackpots.
Aztec Diamonds is an unusual slot – once you get spinning those reels, it becomes rather straightforward. Variance wise it’s in the middle with possible payouts of 500 times your stake on each spin/free spin. The bigger wins will come from the Jackpot Diamond feature as you can pocket various prizes including the big 250 times stake prize from the Grand jackpot. Overall, a good game I’m sure you’ll love. I recommend you try other GamesLab/NextGen Gaming slots with Cat Burglar a worthy game.
