On the reels, you can expect to find low paying symbols, high paying symbols as well as bonus symbols. The low paying symbols on the paytable include playing card symbols from 9-Ace. The highest best paying of these is the Ace symbols which awards 1.75x your stake for a combination of 6 matching symbols.
Moving up the paytable are the premium symbols which include sacred Aztec animals such as a falcon, snake and jaguar. The highest paying premium symbol is the Aztec god symbol which will award a generous payout of 50x your stake for landing 6 of a kind.
Bonus symbols in Aztec Gold Megaways include the Sun Disk Scatter and Wild Symbols. The Sun Disk Scatter symbol triggers the respin bonus round if you manage to land five or more. The wild symbol substitutes for any other symbol on the reels, except for the scatter, to help boost payouts of combinations.
Aztec Gold Megaways features the cascading reels game mechanic. This feature involves removing symbols that participate in a winning combination while new symbols cascade into their place. The Cascades continue until no new combinations are formed, after which you will be required to set your bet and spin again.
The main bonus feature in Aztec Gold Megaways is the Aztec Gold Cash Respins. This bonus feature is triggered by landing five or more scatter symbols on the reels. Only Sun Disk scatters are in play; only this time they will have multiplier values attached. The value of all the scatter is added together, and at the end of the bonus round, you will be awarded a payout accordingly.
On top of the usual scatter multiplier symbols, there are also Mini, Major and Mega Multipliers that can come into play. There are two ways to trigger these; during the bonus round, the multiplier bonus can be triggered by landing a full stack of sun disk symbols on the reels. Alternatively, they can be activated by landing the scatter symbol with the mini, major or mega title on them. The mini, major and mega multiplier award payouts of 30x, 100x or 1000x your stake (respectively).
