SlotBeats fought off feral jaguars and two-headed snakes this week to award Synot Games’ Aztec Jaguar its coveted Slot of the Week title.
A 5×3, 25-payline slot, Aztec Jaguar features an RTP of 96 per cent and incorporates various features, such as free spins, wild and bonus symbols which aid players triggering a Hold & Win feature.
Within the slot, lower paying symbols come in the form of a dagger, compass, vase and dragon, and traditional letters range from A-Q, which offer between x0.4 to x4 wins.
Furthermore, the wild symbol – a man with a jaguar head mask – substitutes for all symbols except the bonus and free spins symbol. During the base game and free spins, the bonus symbols can hold the value from x1 to x20 the bet or a special win awarded to the paytable.
Moreover, when six or more bonus symbols trigger anywhere on the reel, the hold and win feature forms three initial respins. The bonus symbols that triggered the feature remain in place, and if any new bonus symbols appear, they will remain in place and the respin count will be set to three.
The bonus symbols carry either a value, special win, or one of two functions which include expanding bonus symbols with a value, and arrows expanding to fit the whole reel.
Free spins can appear on reels two, three and four, with three free spins symbols awarding the player five spins. During these, the reels are linked and spin as one, but are still considered separate for the win evaluation. A full symbol will always land on a linked reel.
In the gamble feature, a player is unable to bet any win exceeding €55,000, which is card-based and the player has to guess the colour of the next card to win.
A correct guess doubles the win, whereas an incorrect one subsequently loses the win and collecting a win ends this feature.
