With up to 117649 ways to win, you already know what to expect from this Montezuma Megaways slot game, and it delivers on every front.
Created by WMS, you’ll find the Aztec Emperor surrounded by totems, golden masks, beautiful headdress and a gorgeous Princess all present.
As with games of this type, you have 6 reels with an ever-changing number of rows – from 2 to 7. This can potentially give you up to 117649 ways to win in a single spin, and pretty much anything else in between.
What WMS hasn’t done is updated the graphics. Even NetEnt was smart enough to make Dead or Alive 2 slot prettier than the old original.
Here they haven’t bothered, making this look dated from the moment you load it. The graphics are slightly fuzzy, and the win animations straight out of a 90s computer game.
It’s not great, but it’s not awful. We’ve seen worse in games like the Magic Mirror Deluxe 2 review for example. But it does take away a big point in our books.
Thank-fully you do, from time to time, get a free re-spin of the extra reel at the top on a non-winning spin. This makes you forgive the old fashioned feel of the game, from time to time.
But only once you hit the free spin bonus round. Then you’ll be awarded a random number of free spins – usually around 6 or 8.
This is where the Montezuma Megaways slot review picks up a few stars: not only does your multiplier increase with every win, but you get a chance at catching even more.
2 scatters is all you need, and then you spin a multiplier wheel which can increase your multiplier by 100x. Not likely, sure, but even increasing the multiplier by 2x or 8x is enough to make this game pay out BIG. Like 10,000x your bet big.
If you get 2 scatters on the last spin, that multiplier wheel will multiply ALL your free spin bonus wins, and we’ve walked away with 300x our bet to know this is no joke.
Well worth taking a spin or two.

Avalanching Reels: With every win, the symbols in a payline will explode and more will come tumbling down from above. This continues until no more wins can be found.
Montezuma Respin Wheel: After the reels stop on a non-winning spin, the top reel may randomly re-spin and give you another chance to get another win.
Wild Symbol: The Aztec Pyramid is the wild symbol and is only available on the Wheel above the reels. It can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatter compass symbols will trigger the free spins. You spin a wheel and get a random number of free spins, usually around 10 spins. During the free spins, every single win will increase the multiplier by 1.
If you get 2 scatters you'll get to spin the Montezuma Multiplier wheel. This will increase the multiplier amount by 1 to 100 times.
If you get the two scatters on your last spin, you'll still spin the wheel, on this time you will get you a random multiplier on your total win on the bonus games so far.
Bonus Guarantee: If you win less than 30x your bet in the bonus game, you'll get a top-up on your wins to ensure you always walk away with a minimum of 30x your total bet.
It's hard to fault this Montezuma Megaways slot on mobile, as it has all the same graphics as the original, only with more ways to win, avalanching reels and bigger multipliers.
But it just doesn't look as pretty or glamorous as the likes of the Monopoly Megaways slot or any of the others with almost identical mechanics. WMS have done their best, but they really need to update their designs.
Still, if you love Megaways slot machines, this Montezuma version will almost certainly give you everything you love, including 117649 ways to wins and more multipliers than an Aztec Emperors on Sacrifice Day.
