With a good paytable and the right mechanics, you’d think this Book of Aztec slot would get a higher score, but it doesn’t and here’s why.
Book of Aztec is a 5 reel 3 rows 10 payline slot machine with wild that pay as scatter and trigger 10 free spins where one symbol is chosen as an expanding scatter wild.
Sound familiar? That’s because it’s the same mechanics that have made the Book of Ra Deluxe slot famous the world over, and the same used by the now far more popular online Book of Dead game by Play’n GO.
Book of Aztec brings absolutely nothing new to the table, which is both it’s saving grace and it’s downfall.
It’s not like this Book of Aztec online slot looks particularly good either. In fact, it’s even more dated the original, original Book of Ra slot, and that one has certainly seen better days.
Instead of a male adventurer, you get a Lara Croft type character battling ancient Aztec symbols with an ancient book that looks identical to the Egyptian one.
To be honest, unless you look carefully, you could miss that the Hieroglyphs are South American in nature rather than Egyptian.
But then Amatic studios aren’t trying to re-invent the wheel, just copy it.
By that we mean the paytable is good, and the wins and volatility of this online casino game reflect the original. Which is the main reason why people keep coming back for more.
Randomly during the bonus game, one symbol will be chosen to expand and pay like a scatter – it’s one of the few slot games online where you can feel the potential of getting ten 5 of a kind wins in one spin.
But this Book of Aztec slot machine comes with a higher price tag than most, with the minimum bet set at a high 1.00 a spin, instead of the more traditional 0.10.
For that alone we can help but think that there are better versions out there. The ones we mentioned at the top being the main ones, but even Merkur’s Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 is friendlier to those with smaller budgets.

Scatter Wilds: The Book is both the scatter and the wild symbol. So it can be used to replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win, but 3 or more will also trigger the free spins. It also pays out regardless of whether it's on an active payline.
Free Spin Bonus: 3 or more books on the reels will trigger ten free spins. One random symbol will then be chosen to expand and to pay regardless of whether it's sitting left to right.
Another copy of the excellent Book of Ra, only this Book of Aztec slot looks older, more dated and less interesting.
But we can't completely discard it because it has a good paytable and that 5,000 times your bet max win that made the original so compelling.
The problem is that with a high minimum starting bet of 1 a spin, and the fact you can find better versions of this mobile game out there, we can't exactly recommend it either.
