Theme & Background
Aztec Warrior Princess is based on the pre-Columbian Mesoamerican Empire that was the Aztec Empire. This fearsome civilisation lasted from the 13th century all the way through to the 16th century. Then, to nobody’s surprise, the Europeans invaded and took over the country. The Aztecs used to call themselves ‘Mexica’, which is where Mexico and Mexico City get their names from. In fact, the capital city of the Aztec Empire used to be where Mexico City is today.
One thing we can tell about the Aztecs is that they were intimidating warriors. It’s what made them last a good three centuries (that’s a considerable 300 years) before they were defeated by gunpowder. The Aztecs were also known for their deep spirituality and connection to nature. A lot of us would associate Aztecs with carved wooden totem poles, because they used to construct and use totems as spiritual monuments.
Given their toughness and amazing culture, it’s no wonder that a software provider took inspiration from the Aztecs and created a video slot as a tribute to them. The face of this slot is a fierce and beautiful Warrior Princess, clearly the leader of her tribe. Seriously, she looks like someone you don’t mess with. This slot strikes us as another example of the cultural diversity that online slot providers pride themselves on.
The Aztec theme is represented not only the background of the slot, but also by the symbols. The lower payout symbols are letters which look like they’re carvings from a totem pole. The higher payout symbols are represented through the animals that the Aztecs used to hold in the highest esteem: dragon, cheetah, eagle and frog. The Wild symbol is a gold shield, the Free-spin Scatter is the face of the Aztec Warrior Princess and the Bonus scatter are represented by jewel-eyed skulls.
Since it’s of medium volatility, Aztec Warrior Princess doesn’t have a crazy amount of special features unlike other Play’n GO slots like Viking Runecraft. This means it’s not as volatile as Viking Runecraft. It’s more similar to Play’n GO classics like Super Flip and Fire Joker (even if the last slot is a jackpot slot). But this is not a bad thing. Aztec Warrior Princess has surprisingly enough RTP to keep things interesting throughout, even without a lot of bonus features. Steady payouts over a period of time means for better overall profit for the player. You don’t have to risk big in order to get a shot at winning some real money.
Explore Aztec Warrior Princess Symbols
The Wild symbols in Aztec Warrior Princess are golden shields. Wilds can substitute all order symbols on the reels, except for scatters, so as to help the player get more winning combos.
Free Spin Scatters
The Free Spin Scatters are represented by the beautiful Warrior Princess. When you get 3, 4 or 5 of these scatters anywhere on the reels, you’ll trigger a sequence of 15, 20 or 25 free spins respectively. Pretty impressive if you ask us. During the free spins round, our fierce Princess ‘goes wild’ and unleashes her true warrior nature in order to help the player create more winning combos. She might look intimidating, but hey she’s actually really helpful.
Bonus scatters are the ones with three jewel-eyed skulls as icons. If you get 3 of these scatters anywhere on the reels, you’ll trigger the Aztec Temple Bonus Round.
Aztec Temple Bonus Round
The Aztec Temple Bonus Round is where the player really can get a shot at winning big. 1000x your total bet big, to be precise. The bonus round is triggered by getting 3 bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. It’s basically and Pick & Select game where you have to select three mud-covered skulls lying on the temple floor. The value of your prize depends on two main factors:
- Whether the skull is diamond, gold, silver or bronze
- How many matching skulls you get (i.e. how many skulls of the same material you select)
Obviously, this means that the highest payout you can get from this bonus round is three diamond skulls. That’s what’ll get you the coveted 1000x multiplier.
Payouts and Wagering Limits
The payout percentage for this slot is 96.08%, which seems to be the average for Play’n GO slots. While this isn’t the highest payout percentage out there, Aztec Warrior Princess does have some pretty good values for its payout table. This is how the payout table is laid out:
As you can see, the paytable offers very decent payouts for its higher symbols, and modest one for its lower payout symbols. The only ‘bad’ side is that since the coin value limit is low (max is $1.00), your multiplier isn’t going to be over the top huge. But it’s still going to be a very generous amount.
Aztec Warrior Princess
We like Aztec Warrior Princess. It might not be an extremely innovative slot, or volatile enough to award big cash prizes often. But it’s reasonable betting limits and also generous bonus round (and generous Wilds), we give this slot a 4.0 rating. Definitely a slot to check out if you’re looking to just have some fun winning money.
