What are Aztec slots?

The Aztecs of central America were famous for their love of gold, spectacular temples and fearsome idols, all of which makes them a superb subject for a slot theme!

Set over 500 years ago, deep in the jungles of what is now Mexico, Aztec adventures have become the stuff of legend, especially in Hollywood, and now in the slot provider world too.

From Games Global and NetEnt to Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger and ELK Studios, every provider worth their salt has explored this ancient civilisation in the hunt for the next great Aztec slot machine.

As you’ll see from our list of Aztec themed online games, all of these slots lean into the iconic symbols of the Aztec empire – stepped temples, worshipped gods, jungle beasts and piles of treasure.

The temples, in particular, are the ideal location for a slot adventure, and lend themselves perfectly to block-shaped reels loved by slot designers. Let’s see what the top 10 Aztec slots look like, and which are ready to be conquered!

OJO’s Top 10 Aztec Slots

From a 2013 classic that’s still legendary today to games with the latest feature innovations, the Aztec games category has it all.

Here’s what the likes of Blueprint Gaming, Playtech and NetEnt make of the Aztec slot theme. Get ready for our top 10 Aztec slot machines you can play for real money online!

Aztec Gold Megaways

Aztec Gold Megaways

Most of the slots in our list have stunning designs, but Aztec Gold Megaways takes the biscuit with dramatic reel symbols and backgrounds that come alive.

Aside from the prospect of over 117,000 win lines if you play your Megaways right, plus the iconic cascading symbols, there’s also the constant possibility of a mega multiplier literally looming over you.

Land 5 scatters and you’ll trigger at least 3 respins and the chance to collect some tidy wins. As well as the 30X, 100X and 1000X multipliers, there’s also the chance of the 19,200X maximum win.

If you like the look of this game but want to throw some reel modifiers in the mix, try the 2021 sequel, Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways. With one fewer scatter needed to trigger the bonus feature, the action comes faster too.

Aztec Falls

Aztec Falls

A new entry in the Aztec slots category from Games Global’s Northern Lights Gaming, Aztec Falls is already one of the top 10 most played slots in the UK. What has it got under the hood that’s made it instant gold with slots fans?

There is a ton of feature action in this game, from the Coin Drop feature which can trigger multipliers, wilds, stacked spins or the triple jackpot feature, to the random wins of the Cash Fall Bonus and the Free Spins with full-reel sticky wilds, there are so many innovative ways to win.

Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols

Rich Wilde and the Aztec Idols

Now in its 10th year, Aztec Idols is an oldie but a goodie. One of the first slots in Play ‘N GO’s Rich Wilde adventure series, Aztec Idols is a superb jungle romp full of personality and classic bonus games.

There’s a Free Spins game with a twist, as an extra scatter symbol acts as a wild, but the killer feature is the picker game, where you can win up to 150X if you pick the right gold statue. Just like the Aztecs themselves, this slot is timeless.

Aztec Spins

Aztec Spins

Like everything Red Tiger releases, there’s innovation everywhere you look in this modern Aztec slot machine. From the 30 lines that ‘Pay Both Ways’ to the Aztec bonus wheel that triggers the game’s many different bonus features, they’ve breathed new life into an ancient genre.

The game’s Locked Symbols feature delivers guaranteed wins, while the Stacking Multiplier bonus adds 10X to the next paytable win. Even with the Free Spins feature, the Aztec Wheel will appear more often, so the game lives up its name.

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure

John Hunter and the Aztec Treasure

John Hunter, Pragmatic Play’s rival adventurer to Rich Wilde, makes a star turn in the Aztec slots category with this distinctively designed 7776 ways game. It’s not a Megaways slot, but it works just the same with between 2 and 6 symbols randomly assigned to each reel.

Everything’s a surprise in this Aztec adventure, not least the Free Spins feature that awards between 5 and 25 spins, and applies random multipliers of 2X to 10X to every Free Spin.

Aztec Expedition Thundershots

Aztec Expedition Thundershots

Playtech are the provider of choice for many slots players, and with this Aztec slot, you can see why. As well as Cascading symbols, sticky wilds that lock in place for up to 3 cascades, you’ll discover a whole heap of bonus games including their Thundershots feature.

Your path to all of the bonus features is the Gates of Destiny. Once you’ve landed 3 scatters, you’ll spin the Gates of Destiny wheel to select one of four bonuses.

This includes Free Games where wilds have 5 lives, a picker game, a Treasure Run and best of all, Thundershots, where you can cash plus enhanced versions of the other features.

The graphics may not be class-leading but the features make this game one of the top Aztec slot machines out there.

Gonzo’s Quest

Gonzo’s Quest

Almost a decade after Gonzo’s Quest came out, and there’s now a massively popular Megaways version and a live action game too. But the original Gonzo’s Quest slot remains one of the most iconic slots – not just Aztec slots – ever made.

The authentic symbol designs, drop and exploding animations are still among the best made, even today.

Hit several cascading ‘Avalanche’ wins in a row on the same spin for multipliers of up to 5X multiplier, or land 3 scatters to trigger 10 Free Falls, where Avalanche multipliers rise up to 15X.

Compared to the latest Aztec slots, that’s a fairly meagre selection of bonuses, but sometimes when it’s done right, less is more!

Ecuador Gold

Ecuador Gold

There’s no denying that ELK Studios have become one of the most skilled and innovative slots makers of recent times, and Ecuador Gold is a great example of their work.

The theatrical intro sequence sets the scene for a temple adventure with turbo block drops that put Gonzo’s Quest to shame.

What starts as a 4096 Ways game can quickly expand to 262,144 Ways as new rows are added after each win.

Just that feature plus the appearance of super (2×2), mega (3×3) and epic (4×4) symbols would be enough for most players, but here you can trigger up to 25 Free ‘Drops’, and to top it off, the wilds are ‘ghosting’, they float across the reels and leave a trail of wilds behind.

With a stunning design and feature set to match, this Ecuador Gold is quite possibly the ultimate Aztec slot.

Temple Quest Spinfinity

Temple Quest Spinfinity

Temple Quest is one of Big Time Gaming’s older slots, yet with frequent mega symbols and infinite Free Spins, it delivers something different to the rest. There are only 20 symbol positions in this 40 payline slot, but up to 16 can be taken up by mega symbols.

During the Free Spins game, every reel except reel 1 are taken up by mega symbols, and if you keep hitting the Mega Free Spins icon, there’s no limit to how many more Free Spins you can be awarded, hence the ‘Spinfinity’ in the name.

Temple of Treasure Megaways

Temple of Treasure Megaways

Another winner for Blueprint Gaming, who apply an Aztec theme to their Bonanza-style game engine. Anyone who enjoys Bonanza or Extra Chilli will appreciate the 117,649 Ways, cascading symbols and famous extra row above the reels, plus the addition of mystery symbols.

The main attraction here is the Free Spins bonus. Not only does it have unlimited multipliers that increase with every cascade, but you can choose from 4 Free Spins games or a mystery option.

They all offer different combinations of spins and minimum Megaways. The 96.46% RTP is one of the highest Aztec slots RTPs around too.

Our verdict

Yes, there’s an overlap with other slot themes like adventure slots and ancient Egyptian slots.

But Aztec slot theme definitely has its own X factor, and all of the games we’ve mentioned are proof that there are plenty of mysteries yet to be discovered, deep in the South American jungles of the online slot’s world.
