Iconic individuals from history – both real and fictional – seem to be some of the most reliable sights in the WMS mobile slots range, and while we have encountered the likes of Spartacus, Zeus and Kronos in the past, now it is time for something a little different on Montezuma. The Aztec theme has been dabbled in by various developers over the years, generally with mixed success. That said, one of the most iconic games of all time uses the theme, that being NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest, and while we are not expecting anything similar in terms of gameplay and bonuses here, we do at least know that WMS rarely lets us down.
What to Expect
When WMS tackles this kind of theme, players can generally expect one of two things. The game will either pack in some never before seen features and gameplay, or it will be about as standard as it is possible to get. Montezuma falls perfectly into the latter category, but that is no bad thing as with so much creativity going on within the WMS mobile slots range, it can actually be quite nice to play something relatively simple!
The board is standard, and the win lines are on the higher side, coming in at thirty. A pyramid of the Aztec variety plays a part in proceedings by acting as a wild card, although it is not exactly the most reliable symbol of its kind given that it can only land on reels two, three and four. Nevertheless, the line combinations mean that one is rarely wasted, and two or more in view should always be good for a decent win.
Three or more wheel scatters on the board will, unsurprisingly, trigger a wheel based bonus round. Rather than having a chance at some instant cash, this feature is all about the free spins bonus. Between three and 25 spins are displayed on the wheel and what you see is what you get. A further wheel comes in to play when the round begins, this time packed with multipliers. It spins before each free game completes and the wins that fall into place on the subsequent spin will be boosted by between two and ten times.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
The potential to land three free spins as a bonus sounds a little disheartening, but if you hit two scatters within the feature, that wheel will spin once again, with the result being added on to whatever you have left to play through, and it happens regularly enough to be a feature rather than an added bonus. Overall, Montezuma focuses on being solid rather than spectacular, but that is no problem at all for the reasons outlined above, and as long as you are not expecting too much from the game, it can be a true pleasure to play at the leading WMS mobile casinos.
