We’ll be first to admit that the Aztec theme isn’t something unique, but Almighty Aztec actually has more to offer than you would think. We weren’t initially too excited or impressed by what we saw. But we when found out that the theme is centred around Quetzacoatl, a mythical creature that looks like a cross between a feathered snake or maybe a dragon, Almighty Aztec got our attention.

What you see on the screen is oversized icons with a 3×5 grid with only 10 active paylines. The low number of payways is not compensated by high wins, unfortunately, but the theme is interesting enough to capture a player’s attention.
We make out the background to be what we assume is the jungle. The tropical rain forest backdrop features a non-menacing Quetzacoatl to the left, leering at you as you play the game.
The return to player (RTP) is a little higher than normal at 96.38%, equalling to a medium ranking on the volatility scale. The betting range is surprisingly wide, but when you learn of the max jackpot, its incredulous that the number is this low. Your maximum win is only 500x the initial bet. Don’t worry, though, the player hit rate is quite high for Almighty Aztec.
If you were banking on a feature-packed slots game, then Almighty Aztec still has room to improve. It does make good use out of Quetzacoatl, and the mystical serpent will fly across the screen at random and drop 1 - 3 wilds on the grid, and these wilds can expand to take up the entire reel.
The scatter is what looks like some sort of dial symbol is responsible for the free spins. To trigger the free spins, you need at least 3 of the scatters to earn you 5. If you land 4 or 5 scatters, you, in turn, get 8 and 12 free spins in return.

Pay attention to the free spins, because they are what will earn you the most lucrative profits and give you a chance at the 500x max jackpot. The main features of Almighty Aztec are just free spins and wilds.
The graphics and visuals in Almighty Aztec are what is most impressive about the game. The movement and transition the reels are smooth, and incorporating Quetzacoatl into the mix is a unique play. Almighty Aztec is designed to cater more to low risk takers, but with that, we know that the payouts are also lower.

All in all, Almighty Aztec is a pretty average game with a not-so-impressive max payout. The betting range is wide indeed, and with the medium volatility, acceptable RTP, and hit rate, Almighty Aztec has high potential. However, there is nothing stopping players from trying it out.
Just remember that you may have more to lose than to win in the game, and without many bonus features to help you out, earning some major wins can be quite difficult.
