Aztec Treasure slot review (Pragmatic Play)


This adventurous researcher seems to be the new mascot for Pragmatic Play, a bit like Rich Wilde is for Play’n GO. This time, John Hunter visits the Aztecs' temples and jungle, trying to find and take or rather steal their vast treasures.

John Hunter & The Aztec Treasure, as this video slot is called, is a unique project by Pragmatic Play

It is the second slot in which John Hunter makes his appearance (John Hunter and Da Vinci’s Treasure was the first).


Part Megaways slot, part Montezuma

But that’s not what makes this slot so unique. There are plenty of Aztec-themed slots.

Pragmatic Play manages to combine two very successful game mechanisms: it’s both a Megaways slot and the Montezuma slot combined into one.

We all know that Megaways slots are the intellectual property of Big Time Gaming and can only be released under license.

Montezuma’s free spins bonus feature, in which you can win free spins with extra multipliers up to 10 x and retriggers at the same value, is a WMS invention.

In short: Pragmatic Play clearly ‘borrows’ a lot and does so in a rather brilliant way. In our opinion, it is the first slot that not only steals two concepts at the same time but also beautifully merges them into one.


How does Aztec Treasure work?

Aztec Treasure has five reels, and each reel contains a different number of symbols.

In this way, each spin will result in a varying number of ways to win, with a maximum of 7,776 ways to win.

You can bet starting from $€ 0.20 per spin, which goes up to a maximum of $€ 100 per spin.

The name Aztec Treasure can be taken literally when it comes to the maximum payout per spin: this is no less than 9,000 times the total bet.

The variance is, therefore, high.

The theoretical payout rate is 96.50%, which is pretty much the standard for Pragmatic Play slots.

Symbols and payouts

Like we are used to with this game provider, Aztec Treasure looks very slick. The symbols are very clear, have beautiful colours, and almost pop off the screen.

The wild symbol, a golden Aztec mask, replaces all other symbols except the scatters.

The tough John Hunter himself is the highest paying symbol: spin 5 of them, and you win 4 x the total bet.

Other high-value symbols are the jaguar, the toucan and the snake. The card symbols pay out a bit less but can just as well result in a large payout.

Symbols can occur in stacks, and because of the wilds and the win, you can make multiple winning combinations of the same symbol.


Free spins bonus

Three or more will give you not only free spins but plenty of fireworks as well.

To determine how many free spins you are awarded in the bonus round, a wheel is spun first.

  • Three bonus scatters get you 5 to 25 spins.
  • Four bonus scatters award 10 to 25 spins.
  • Five bonus scatters earn you 15 to 25 spins.

During the free spins, an extra reel will appear at the top of the screen. The multipliers are shown here, starting at 2 x and going up to 10 x. All the profits you make in that spin will be multiplied by this.

And here’s the fun part: if you manage to spin a retrigger (you only need two scatters for this), you’ll get extra free spins against the current multiplier.

Again, a wheel is spinning, so you can win a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 15 extra free spins.

And during these extra free spins, you can retrigger, again and again, keeping the multiplier intact.

Of course, the best thing is to retrigger when the multiplier is high, on 7 x or even on 10 x; your account balance can make big jumps in record time.


Our verdict on the Aztec Treasure slot

SuperBigWin loves Megaways slots and is equally fond of the classic Montezuma slot by WMS.

You would think that if you combine these two slots, something beautiful will be created.

And then you are entirely correct.

Aztec Treasure is a powerful video slot release with an exciting bonus feature, immense potential, and a beautifully designed theme.
