Aztec Palace is a graphically entertaining game developed by Booming Gaming. This video slot game has a 5x3 reel with 20 fixed pay lines. It was released in 2019 and can be enjoyed from desktop, tablet, or mobile devices with the same game layout. There are multiple bonus features including symbol conversions, a pick-and-win game, and free spins. The game has a high win variance, but the return to player percentage is unknown.
The minimum and maximum bet are 0.20 and 400 respectively.
In Aztec Palace, all bets are done in cash by selecting the total amount you want to spend each spin. All pay lines are fixed, so when you adjust your bet it will increase in multiples of 20 (20 pay lines). To adjust your bet, click on the pile of coins on the middle right-hand side of the screen. This will open a pop-up menu with the bet options including 0.20, 0.40, 0.60, 1, 2, 4, 6, 10, 20, 40, 60, 100, 200, and 400.
The game has both a turbo mode and autoplay feature.
Enter the Aztec world with exciting graphics and sounds. The background is very detailed, with an old Aztec structure covered in vines, water features, and the occasional poisonous snake and butterfly making their way around the reel. The music is mysterious with different instrumental and animal sounds to be heard. When you spin it sounds like stone slabs being rolled away. You can mute the game’s volume from the ‘+’ menu located next to the spin button.
There are 10 payout symbols in Aztec Palace, including the wild symbol, 4 major symbols, and 5 minor symbols. The wild symbol triggers the highest payout in the game, of 50x your selected cash bet. For example, if you place a cash bet of 2, then you will receive a 100 cash payout.
The highest paying regular symbols are the major symbols, with the Golden symbol triggering the highest payout of 25x your selected ‘bet’. For example, if you choose a bet of 2, then you will receive a cash payout of 50; but if you choose a bet of 1, you will only receive a 25 cash payout.
To combine these symbols, you will have to match between 3 – 5 symbols on one of the game’s 20 fixed pay lines. To see the different configurations, look at the ‘Paylines’ page on the paytable.
How to Read the Paytable
The paytable in Aztec Palace can be found in the game menu under the ‘i’ page. All the payouts are listed in cash, so you will not need to do any calculations. You will, however, need to adjust your bet because the payouts change accordingly.
Bursting Wild Feature: When the bursting wild symbol appears anywhere on the reel, it will turn itself and up to 8 regular payout symbols into wilds.
Pick a Skull bonus game: If 3 or more bonus symbols appear anywhere on the reel, the Pick a Skull bonus game will be activated. You will have 3 skulls to choose from, each offering a different prize.
Free Spins: When you land 3 or more scatter symbols on the reel, the free spins bonus feature is activated. You will be awarded 8 free spins which use the same ‘bet’ setting that you had selected when the feature was activated. During free spins, the reels will only contain major symbols, bursting wilds, wilds, and bonus symbols.
There is a regular wild symbol and bursting wild symbol. Both of these symbols substitute for all other symbols except the scatter and bonus symbols. The regular wild symbol also triggers a payout when combined 5 times. The bursting wild symbol triggers the respective bonus feature.
