What is this mobile slot about?

Do you like Avalanching reels? Expanding Reels? Gems and lots of bonus features? Time to get digging into this Aztec Bonanza mobile slot.

You start with hexagonal reels with 18 symbols. Every win sees all the winning symbols explode and more come tumbling from above, allowing more symbols to fall and giving you more wins, without you having to spend an extra penny.

Tumbling reels are not new – from Gonzo’s Quest slot to Pixies of the Forest II, it’s a common feature. What we love here is that every 2 wins in this Aztec Bonanza slot opens up an extra 3 symbols and more ways to win.

You can open up the whole board and get 776 ways to win. But before that happens you have a whole host of delicious features opening up.

No wild symbol and no scatter and it doesn’t matter

As we mention, this Aztec Bonanza slot review isn’t about just increasing your ways to win, but about the features within.

Because every time you unlock one of the four corners of this every growing slot machine, you get a bonus feature.

First, you get mystery symbols, which is ok but doesn’t necessarily change much in how much you can win. Then the second corner opens up, up to 3 low-level symbols may be replaced by high paying ones. Now it starts to get interesting.

Finally, as you open up the final two bottom corners, you open up mega reels where the symbols in the first two or last two reels will become mega reels with 2×2 symbols and that changes everything.

The Aztec Bonanza slot is a bonanza of spins

This is a volatile slot machine, so don’t get caught up in the momentum of wins after wins, and think you are coming ahead.

With a top win of 19,000x your bet, and no obvious multipliers, it doesn’t take a genius that you need to open up the game to 7776 ways to win to get there.

In order for that to happen, you need to get 8 consecutive ‘tumbles’ or ‘wins’ in a row, and then you’ll get 5 free spins. During those free spins, you are guaranteed to get either those mega reels, mystery symbols, or upgraded symbols.

But of course, you don’t often get to those free spins. This Aztec Bonanza slot is volatile and high risk for a reason, so don’t go into it lightly.

That said, much like in the Reel Rush 2 slot review, there’s a real energy to this kind of game that makes it a joy to play, even if the theme is a little generic in that ‘Exotic, Aztec-ish’ way.

In-game bonus features

Tumble Feature and Increasing Reels: When you get a win, those winning symbols will explode and the other symbols will tumble to the bottom of the reel. The empty spaces will be filled with more symbols, without having to pay for any more. This may cause another win, and another until no more wins are found.

However, the Aztec Bonanza slot has a second trick up its sleeve. Every 2 tumbles, or even 2 wins, will break open one of the four corners of the reels, increasing the ways to win and the size of the reels. They open up in the following ways and unlock different features.

  • Top Left Corner: Unlock mystery symbols. These drop as blocks and reveal one symbol only every time.
  • Top Right Corner: Up to three low-value symbols may be replaced with up to three high-value symbols.
  • Bottom Right Corner: All symbols on reels 1 and 2 are replaced with big 2x2 symbols for all further tumble.
  • Bottom Left Corner: All symbols on reels 4 and 5 are replaced with big 2x2 symbols for all further tumble.

If you unlock all four corners and no more tumbles are possible, you also unlock the free spins.

Free Spin Rules: After 8 successive wins in a row, you unlock the whole 5x6 grid slot with 7776 ways to win. You also get 5 free spins.

During these spins, you'll get any one of the following random features:

  • Mystery Symbols: Mystery symbols hit the screen as clusters and transform into any one symbol.
  • Symbol Transform: Up to 3 low paying symbols on screen transform into a high paying symbol randomly.
  • Giant Symbols: Expanded 2x2 symbols hit on reels 1,2 and 4,5 for the initial spins and any subsequent tumbles.

The avalanching reels will also work their magic during the free spins.


Closing thoughts

You know, maybe we are biased, but there is something we love about slots that give us value for money - and nothing gives you more value for money than the combination of avalanching reels and opening up extra ways to win.

From the original Reel Rush slot to the Contact slot, we love watching those reels expand and nothing beats that rush as the momentums of wins build-up time and time again.

Do you get the free spins often? No. Do you get plenty of mini-free spins and features as you open up the slot? Absolutely.

So it doesn't always matter if you get to those elusive bonus games in this Aztec Bonanza slot. As long as you can enjoy the fun of watching these Aztec uncover those hidden gems, you can have a real bonanza of a time.
