Aztec Gems Deluxe Slot Review – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play is on unstoppable studio within the casino industry, with multiple game releases per month all year long. With some slot releases standing out more than others, such as ‘Fruit Party‘, ‘Starz Megaways‘ and the infamous John Hunter game series. With so many slot releases it can be hard to always be so unique and innovative. Next from the studio is a new game titled ‘Aztec Gems Deluxe‘, set to release 5th August across all sites.

As stated in the game title this slot has an Aztec theme, which is a popular choice by Pragmatic Play. With the studio previously releasing ‘Aztec Gems’, originally released 15th February 2018. This slot release is not the most memorable, but the studio has decided to give it a second chance within this new sequel. The slot background is basic, with most blurred out. It is set in a wild forest, with trees and leaves moving with the wind thanks to a simple animation. The real detail is within the various gem symbols and reel border.

This slot has a setup of 3 reels by 3 rows, this includes 9 set pay lines. Aztec Gems Deluxe is medium variance with a set RTP of 96.50% and 4/5 volatility rating by the studio. You can bet from £0.09 – £90.

In addition to these regular symbols is a wild and money symbol. Wilds substitute for all symbols except money symbols and appears on all reels. The highest paying symbol is the red gem, which pays 9x. The money symbol is also present on all reels. Each money symbol takes a random value from a predefined set or it takes wither a Mini or Minor jackpot values.

Aztec Gems Deluxe Features

When 4 or more money symbols land during one spin the ‘Money Respin‘ feature is triggered. Normal symbols will fade away and only money symbols which initially triggered this feature remain on the reel set. Normal reels are replaced with special reels only containing money symbols and empty spaces. 3 Respins are awarded, every time a new money symbol lands respins reset to 3. This continues until you either run out of spins or all spaces are filled. If all positions are filled one random feature is triggered;

Multiplier – A multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x or 10x is applied to the total win.

Wheel Of Fortune – A wheel of fortune spins awarding one prize to the total win. Possible prizes are multipliers of your bet are 18x, 28x, 58x, 88x, 108x, 128x, 188x, 288x, 388x or any Jackpot Values.


Overall, I think Pragmatic Play has begun to run out of ideas and have resorted to many game sequels for the second half of 2020. Aztec Gems Deluxe is boring to play unfortunately with a simple Respin feature as the star of the show. Be sure to try the slot for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
