Try NextGen Gaming Slots
NextGen has a new slot release, Aztec Diamonds, which is a result of the collaboration with the game studio Games Lab. As implied by the title, the slot features an Aztec theme and will provide you with some fierce special features.
Aztec Diamonds gives you several special features to take advantage of. The first one you will see on the last four reels is the Wild. It comes in the form of an Idol symbol and it plays the role of a substitute for all regular symbols, except, of course, the Scatter. The Wild cannot form its own combos, so it will only be useful in the formation of winning combos with other symbols.
The Scatter in the slot is the Jackpot Diamonds symbol. You will need 6 Scattered Jackpot Diamonds in order to trigger 3 Re-Spins. This is when diamonds become sticky. As soon as the Re-Spins end, you receive a regular cash prize or a jackpot for each of the diamonds you have present on the reels.
There is also another feature, one from which you will benefit the most. This is the Jackpot Diamond Expanding Reels feature. In order to trigger it, you will need to land diamonds in the game area’s corners. This will expand the game area. In fact, the game area will expand several times as you go through the following 3 Re-Spins. The grid set can go up to 8x4 positions, and the corner diamonds will be the ones that will help you hit the Major and Grand jackpots.
Theme & Design
Since the slot is Aztec-themed, expect to find a lot of animal Aztec signs as symbols, such as snakes and birds. You have the Idol Wild, the diamonds as well as the playing card symbols.
In the background, you will see lava surrounded by mountains, and the sunset burning with its last force. It looks like a volcano has just erupted since, on the bottom of the reels, you can see some stones and the red from the hot lava reflecting on them. The sky is red and black.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 30 paylines offered in Aztec Diamonds, and since there will always be 30 coins used in a wager, the betting starts at $0.01, which for 30 coins means $0.30 as the minimum bet. You can bet as much as $3.00 per coin, meaning $90.00 is the maximum bet you could place for 30 coins.
The regular spins in the game will give you as much as 500x the stake for filling the reels with Bird symbols. This combo will give you a payout of $45,000.00.
However, the game features four jackpots, the Mini which gives you 10x the stake payout, the Minor which gives you 30x the stake, the Major giving you 100x the stake payout and the Grand Jackpot, which gives you 250x the stake payout.
Aztec Diamonds is an average slot, one that anyone could be comfortable playing. It gives you the opportunity to hit 4 jackpots, it pays nicely for the winning combos in the base game and during the Re-Spins. Things heat up during the Jackpot Diamond Expanding Reels, where you actually get better chances of hitting the biggest jackpots. The betting range is solid, and the slot can give you a maximum 500x the stake payout.
