Montezuma has a layout typical of WMS slots from this time, with the controls housed in a rectangular bar beneath the reels. From here you can spin, set Autoplay, change your bet, or check out the paytable and game rules.
Landing 3 scatter symbols will trigger the bonus round that begins with the Aztec calendar wheel that spins to award you a maximum of 25 free spins.
As you play through your free spins, a special wheel appears above the grid and will award you a multiplier of up to 10 with every spin. Landing 2 or more scatter symbols during the bonus round will retrigger the feature.
If you finish the bonus round and you have won a total of less than 10x your bet, the Bonus Guarantee mechanic will kick in to boost your win to 10x your bet.
I was impressed with how Montezuma online slot was ahead of its time when it was released. The graphics and 3D animations would put some more modern titles to shame, and the bonus round is packed with more bonuses and surprises than I expected. The game’s top potential is on the lower end at just $180k, but this is a game more suitable to casual players who are after a steady stream of wins, rather than massive one-off prizes. The South American visual aspect here is quite appealing and if you’d like to see more of it, I would suggest playing Almighty Aztec or 1524 Golden Quest.
