Book of Aztec Slot (Amatic)
An addition to the already rich list of slots from Amatic, Book of Aztec is a great slot machine that comes with excellent mechanics. Book of Aztec uses the Book of Ra concept, which has continued to become popular among many slot developers.
Here is my experience with this slot:
Book of Aztec is set-up on the usual modern design of 5 reels and 3 rows. The slot also comes with 10 pay lines. It’s a highly volatile game, but one that also comes with good features that include a wild symbol, and free spins.
Betting and Prizes
Unlike other slots with this mechanic, Book of Aztec requires a much higher price to place a wager. The least that you can use is 1.00 a spin and not the usual 0.10 that you might be used to.
The maximum bet price is $500, and the highest payout potential that Amatic offers for this slot is 5,000 x the stake. The slot offers a fair RTP of 96%.
Book of Aztec Features
Instead of the usual male character, Amatic has opted for a Lara Croft type of character who is in a fierce battle with ancient Aztec symbols.
Additionally, the slot comes with an ancient book that resembles the Egyptian one.
Book of Aztec uses the Book icon to serve as both the Scatter and the Wild symbol. This means that it can be used to serve as a substitute when forming winning combos, or trigger the free spins if 3 or more land on the reels.
And talking of free spins, up to 10 can be triggered on this game. Then there is a random symbol that you can select to expand. This one will deliver some payments regardless of its sitting position.
The slot doesn’t offer a lot of features, but this is a common thing that I have noticed with games in this niche.
Book of Aztec is a great replica of the original slot, Book of Ra. However, Amatic did not do very well with is design, and the slot looks much older and less exciting.
On the payment part, the developer did a great job, and the RTP is also quite reasonable.
However, it's an expensive game to play considering that the least amount that you can use is $1 per spin.
From my experience, I can say that Book of Aztec has got nothing unique or new to offer players, and Amatic just copied everything from the predecessors.
