Back in the day, or at least a couple of years ago, the Aztec Warrior Princess slot game was known simply as ‘Aztec Princess’. Now, this updated version by Play’n GO preserves what made the original game so fun, while making sure that its graphics and layout feels modern and fresh. Popular features like the Free Spins and the Skull Jackpot are more or less unchanged, and so is that ancient civilisation vibe that made the original so unique. The very well-crafted symbols and graphics add to the easy immersion into the game: golden statues, flying dragons, bejewelled skulls, and snarling jaguars add to the theme. Think Indiana Jones, but as a casino game that also has graphics from the present decade. Oh, and the gently swaying palm fronds and creepy crawlies at the edge of one’s field of vision helps keep people thinking that they’re on an adventure in the ancient Yucatan.
The Free Spins feature is activated once three Aztec Princesses appear on the screen. While 15 spins appear to be the norm, up to 25 free spins can be had. Once the Free Spin sequence is activated, the Princess acts as a Wild, making winnings far richer than during normal gameplay.
There isn’t a traditional jackpot on this game, nor is there a progressive slot type of jackpot. Instead, there is a second Bonus feature that can really brighten one’s day. By getting three skulls on the screen, a Bonus sequence is launched. This intense feature can generate winnings of up to a thousand times the original bet. A hundred times the bet is not bad going either.
