Can you break into the Temple and unlock 10,000x your bet in this Fortunes of Aztec slot by Pragmatic Play Studios? Only if the Emperor is on your side.
The Fortunes of Aztec mobile slot is a 6×4 reel with 4096 ways to win game with tumbling reels, wilds, scatters and free spins. You’ll increase the overall win multiplier every time you clear a reel. In the free spins, that multiplier is sticky, allowing you to win up to 10,000x your bet if you play on the version of this game with a high RTP of 96.42%.
Most Pragmatic Play casinos can now choose to set the RTP of their slots between 94.04% to 96.42%. Always choose the online venue that provides you with the high RTP version of this game to increase your odds of winning.
Once you do, you have a decent game set in Ancient Aztec. Much like in the Gonzita’s Quest slot, you start in a valley overlooking ancient temples filled with gold, and it’s only once the free spins hit that you enter for your chance to steal all the treasure within.
In theory, you can win big on any spin. How? Because every time you clear a reel, the overall win multiplier for all wins in that spin goes up to +1x.
And every win could see you clear a reel – after all, this is a tumbling reels slot, much like the Temple of Prosperity slot machine.
The problem is that clearing a reel is not easy, even with 4096 ways to win. Even on three or four tumbles, getting beyond a 3x multiplier will be nothing short of a miracle. But, it means if you win big in the Fortunes of Aztec slot base game, you win REALLY big thanks to those multipliers.
Three or more scatters will see you win at least 12 free spins, and here is where things get interesting. In the base game, the wild can come one or two symbols high. In the free spins, one reel is always wild.
Can you see the logic? It means every time you get a win using the wild reel, the win multiplier goes up by one. To even out the playing field for players, the multipliers are sticky and won’t reset between spins.
Now, you can quickly build up big multipliers in this Fortunes of Aztec online slot and get somewhere close to that top win. Probably not as close as you would like, as this is a high variance machine, but close enough that you might come back to try your luck again.

Wilds: The Emperor is the wild symbol, and he appears on reels 3, 4, 5 and 6. He can come one or two symbols high in the base game or cover the whole reel in the free spins bonus.
Tumble Feature and Win Multiplier: After a winning combination, those symbols will explode, and more will come tumbling down, allowing for a new set of wins.
Every time all symbols from a whole reel disappear, the win multiplier for all the wins will go up by +1x. This multiplier resets between spins.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols trigger 12, 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. The win multiplier is now sticky between spins. Better yet, one reel will always have a fully stacked wild, meaning that if you get a win using the wild, you also increase the overall game win multiplier.
Buy Bonus: For 100x your bet, you can buy entry straight into the free spin bonus round.
Why did we give this Fortunes of Aztec slot review only three stars? It hits all the right notes: high RTP of 96.42%, a wide betting range and a huge top win of 10,000x your bet.
But it's nothing we haven't seen before. The tumbling reels are fun, but the win multipliers only really come into play during the free spins, frustrating us in the base game.
This is a decent addition to our Pragmatic Play slots list, and we are not trying to stop you from playing - it's just that experienced gamblers will soon forget it beyond the initial gameplay.
Once we started, we were happy to keep spinning, and the slot theme is easy on the eye. We even got a huge 200x our bet win in the free spins that kept us going for longer than we expected.
A solid Ancient Aztec game with 4096 ways to win.
