Montezuma by WMS Gaming
Slot developers love to create games around ancient civilisations. We have countless slots both online and brick and mortar based in Egypt or Rome and a growing number based in the jungles of South America. South America is great as it had a number of civilisations who lived there all with unique artefacts and cultures. Montezuma is one such slot, based on the Aztecs and one of their Warriors called Montezuma.
Montezuma is a standard five reel slot with thirty fixed paylines. Each line can be played for 0.01 coins up to 2 coins, which gives a maximum bet of 60 cons. It is recommended however that if you new to the online slot world or even just Montezuma the game that you place your bets conservatively until you have the hang of things.
Montezuma is a pretty slot to look at. It is full of bright colours and a pretty detailed background. Behind the reels is a jungle scene with dark trees and long vines that look a bit like snakes. The reels are a bright orange; which stands out against the green back drop. The symbols are graphically not hugely impressive compared to other slots that are available on the market today. They are still in drawing style, but detailed enough to be aesthetically pleasing. The layout of the buttons below the reels is simple and easy to understand. They have been done in a block format, also in a burnt orange.
Montezuma was a fierce Aztec warrior based in the jungles of South America. Most of the symbols on the reels are taken from the Aztec culture and belief system. An Aztec Snake statue and a gold mask are the lowest theme based symbols paying 200 coins for five of them in a row. An intricate headdress will pay out 250, while an eagle will pay out 400. The Aztec warrior princess will award you with 500 coins for finding five of her on the reels and Montezuma himself offers 600 for an army of five of him. The base symbols are from a deck of cards.
Montezuma has only two features, a wild and free spins. The wild can appear stacked on reels two, three and four and will replace any other symbols in the game except for the shield scatter.
The shield scatter will launch the free spins round if three or more of them are found on the five reels. This works slightly differently to a normal free spins round. The number of spins that will be awarded has nothing to do with the number of scatters, instead a wheel will spin above the reels, and whatever it lands on will be awarded to the player. This can be anything from three to twenty five spins. Another wheel will appear which will determine the multiplier that accompanies the free spins.
Montezuma comes with a bonus guarantee. This basically states that any free spins feature that ends with less than a 10x multiplier will automatically be increased to a 10x total bet multiplier. This includes the initiating scatter payout that gets awarded with the scatter symbols. This can go up to a maximum of 300 coins.
