The Awesome Aztecs
The Aztec wandered around Mexico for about 200 years before they settled down in the Valley of Mexico. Other tribes were living in the area. Rather than start a war for a place to live, the Aztecs settled down peacefully (at first) in the swampy land around Lake Texcoco.
They were clever people. They adapted to their environment. They built canoes to fish and hunt. They filled the marshes with a combination of reeds and stones and dirt to create more farmland. They built dams and dikes to free even more land. Their engineers successfully built a bustling city, with wide plazas and many shops, on a swamp.
After they had settled in, the Aztec Indians began conquering neighboring tribes. Soon, the entire Valley of Mexico was under their control. Other tribes had to pay tribute to them in the form of food, clothing, goods, and captives to feed the hungry Aztec gods. The Aztec believed in human sacrifice. That was one of the many reasons the other tribes hated and feared the Aztec. But the Aztec seemed unstoppable.
It was not until the 1500s, when the Spanish arrived, that the Aztec were conquered. The Spanish brought guns, dogs, horses, and disease. It was disease that conquered the Aztec. The Aztec Empire collapsed. The Spanish took over the entire region.
Today, in Mexico, there are about one million descendants of the ancient Aztec, living and working. Human sacrifice is no longer part of their festivals (thank goodness!), but beautiful Aztec art and clever Aztec games are still enjoyed today.

The Amazing Aztecs Game Logo awards the highest Total Bet Multiplier. A spin that comes up with 3, 4 or 5 Logo Tokens positioned consecutively from the first reel, garners a reward equal to 2.5x, 5x or 10x the Total Bet. If a winning Amazing Aztecs Logo triggers a Respin, the forthcoming rewards will be significant. The free roll may even produce a colossal Amazing Aztecs icon capable of bringing multiple winning combinations.
Amazing Aztecs Online Slot: Giant Respin Feature
Every winning spin has potential to trigger this feature. After payout evaluation, the grid might launch a respin. If it does, one of the symbols held by the middle reel (Reel 3) will be selected arbitrarily. The selected icon will then reappear as a huge block of image occupying several adjacent positions.
Giant Symbol – After a Reel 3 icon has been selected, a Giant Symbol emerges in one of three (3) available dimensions: 2×2, 3×3 and 4×4. While in view as a huge image, each block consists multiple 1×1 units of the featured icon.
A 2×2 Giant Symbol carries four (4) identical images. On the other hand, a colossal symbol occupying three rows of three contiguous reels (3×3), furnishes nine (9) alike images. It comes without saying that the 4×4 Giant Symbol can bring the most rewarding impact; furnishing as many as sixteen (16) of-a-kind symbols positioned next to each other.
Even if only a portion of the Giant Icon is in view, all visible units can still form or complete a win.
In a game that has less rigid requirements when evaluating winning combos, a Giant Symbol that randomly takes position in Reel 1, has the highest potential for producing Big, Big Wins.
This Amazing Aztecs bonus feature though does not reset despite winning Respin results. Players must land another regular winning combination, in order to set off another Giant Respin.
Amazing Aztecs Online Slot: Betting Options
All 243 win lines are available on every spin. The array of bet values to activate each spin, ranges from 0.10 to 100.00.
Unlike traditional icon-matching games that base rewards on the current Line Bet, this JFTW/Microgaming online slot calculates winnings based on the current Total Bet.
Amazing Aztecs online slot may seem like a typical icon-matching game with only a Respin to offer as bonus feature and a Giant Symbol to boast of as win-boosting element. The great news though is that the game randomly sets off both the Respin and Giant Symbol on any win event. Once a free roll activates, an arbitrarily selected symbol emerges either as a 2×2, 3×3 or 4×4 icon, capable of creating multiple winning arrangements.
