Aztec Blaze slot REVIEW
Aztec Blaze ReviewIt’s a good idea to not judge this game by its cover, so to speak, as Aztec-themed releases are hardly anything new. Aztec Blaze is a fast-paced and highly engaging installment from Pragmatic Play however, and the visuals will grow on you - literally. We are suckers for well-paced games, and this one flows as smoothly as a dream (not least if you hold down the spacebar to engage the turbo spin mode).
You should expect plenty of dead spins between any action though, and the reason is that each win triggers an indefinite Respins feature that can take you all the way to the 2,000x win cap. The streak respins level up the colossal symbols, as well as increasing the win multiplier, and you get more of the same with 5 respin lives in the bonus round. This is a must try game really, and it hooked us pretty quickly at least.

Aztec Blaze Slot Features
The 4 premium animal symbols pay between 4 and 8 x your stake for 6 of a kind wins, and you get Wild symbols on all reels to help complete wins by stepping in for pay symbols. You can switch on/off the Ante Bet option between base game spins, and turning it on gives you 1 extra life when the base game respin feature triggers. This will cost you 60 % more per spin though.
The Respin Mode feature triggers after each base game win, and you get a payout after each respin if you win anything. The respins feature ends when you land a non-winning spin, unless you have the Ante Bet switched on. Each respin increases the size of the colossal symbol, and a multiplier is also introduced after a few respins. It works as follows:
Respin 1 - 2x2 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5.
Respin 2 - 3x3 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5.
Respin 3 - 4x4 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are boosted by x2.
Respin 4 - 4x4 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are boosted by x3.
Respin 5 - 4x4 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are boosted by x5.
Respin 6 - 4x4 sized colossal symbol on reels 2 to 5, and all wins are boosted by x10.
If you get beyond 6 respins, nothing changes in terms of colossal symbol size or multiplier, but the feature can go on indefinitely.
The Bonus Round triggers when you land 2 scatters on reels 1 and 6, and you get 5 lives that play out like the respins feature we’ve described above. This means that you get indefinite spins until you’ve landed 5 non-winning spins. The colossal symbol and multiplier level progression is kept between spins in the bonus round, and landing 2 scatters award +5 extra spins.
Non-UK players, and anyone eligible, may purchase the bonus round for 60x the stake. The feature triggers organically once in 200 spins on average, and you cannot purchase the bonus round if the Ante Bet is turned on.

Aztec Blaze Slot - Free Spins
Despite getting plenty of dead spins in the base game at first, there was something about Aztec Blaze that sucked us in from the get-go. The snappy pace was one thing, but it was like the game was daring us to keep on going to see what it had up its sleeve. Once the respins level up system kicked in we were pretty much hooked. The feature offers a visually engaging challenge that makes you want to see how far you can take it.
The colossal symbols element is admittedly pretty similar to a Yggdrasil’s Gigablox feature, but Pragmatic Play has used it in a more clever way in our humble opinion. Instead of randomly sized blocks you get a progression system that’s far more captivating, and the 2,000x potential is within reach when nothing resets in the bonus round. It’s a very hit or miss feature though, and payouts top out at 200x with no multiplier action.

Waterblox Gigablox - is one to try if you enjoy larger than usual symbol sizes. This Peter & Sons installment is a follow-up to Monster Blox, and it comes with wild transformation respins.
