Don’t let the name turn you off, this Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatl´s Trial slot has a couple of interesting features and a top 5,555x your bet max win.
This is one of the many Beat the Beast slots from Thunderkick studios. We went underwater with the Kraken’s Lair slot, then we headed to ancient Egypt with the Mighty Sphinx machine and finally straight to hell in the Cerberus Inferno slot review.
And now, we get the unpronounceable Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatl´s Trial mobile slot set amongst the ancient jungle of South America as the Mayan or Aztec temple looms in the background and the feather snake god will decide your fate.
Will you be sacrificed to this ancient deity? Or will you live to win that max win? Either way, this Ancient Aztec slot theme is as beautiful as you’ve come to expect, even if the city of gold is well hidden.
All the Beat the Beast games have one thing in common: they are all very volatile slot machines with big top wins and simple mechanics.
That’s not to say they are all the same, as they each have their own take on how to get you to the treasure. Here you get one symbol that is both the wild and scatter and that’s the Quetzalcoatl emblem.
Other than that, there’s not a whole load happening in the base game. Sorry if you want lots of features, but this is just about having 9 paylines and a decent paytable as you spin to get symbol wins in this Quetzalcoatl´s Trial slot.
If you can’t accept that, you may want to move to read our La Fiesta slot review or something. But if you can, keep reading because there’s nothing wrong with simple when you have big, big wins.
3 scatters triggers the free spins bonus. This give you 10 spins and the exact same game – the only difference is that you get stacked wilds and you collect wild symbols.
Why do you collect them? Once you’ve collected 5 at a time, you’ll turn one of the low paying symbols into the next one on the paytable, plus you’ll also trigger +2 free spins.
If you can turn all 5 of the Quetzalcoatl´s Trial slot symbols into the highest paying symbol of the lot, the wins here are surreal, because you also get those stacked wilds.
Is it frustrating? Yes. Can it be a little slow? Sometimes. Will you turn more than one high paying symbol at a time? Maybe. Are there great wins you can catch? Absolutely.
Another good addition to the Thunderkick slots selection.

Scatter and a Wild symbol: The Quetzalcoatl Emblem symbol is both the wild symbol (substitutes for other symbols to create wins) and as the scatters (pays regardless of where it is on the reels and triggers the bonus games).
Bonus Games: 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger 10 free spins. During the free Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatl´s Trial spins, you have a Wild Collect Feature.
Every time a wild symbol shows up, it's collect. Collect 5 Wild symbols and the first of the high paying symbols will turn to the next one of the next one on the paytable.
The high win symbols are (from lowest to highest) the Cup, the Axe, the Crown and the Quetzalcoatl Statuette.
So every 5 wilds you catch, you'll turn the Cup to the Axe. Then another 5 wilds will turn all Cup and Axe symbols into the Crown. Finally, you can turn all symbols into the Quetzalcoatl Statuette which is the highest paid symbol of the lot.
During the bonus game, when you catch 5 wild symbols you also get +2 free spins and the wild symbols can come stacked. You can re-trigger the free spins with 3 scatters.
Beat the Beast: Quetzalcoatl´s Trial slot follows in the footpath of its predecessor with a confusingly long name, but wonderfully simple mechanics.
Quetzalcoatl´s Trial gives you 5 reels 9 paylines slot machine with a scatter that is also a wild, and free spins that progressively turn high paying symbols into better paying ones.
In short, you spin, you hope to trigger the free spins and if not, you hope your budget last long enough for your offering to be heard by this capricious god.
Volatile, fun, huge wins and a great RTP, you'll need patience and diligence, but seasoned gamblers will love this Thunderkick slot game.
