You probably don't need me to tell you that we see a lot of Aztec style games that look alike and don't bring much to the table in terms of being different. The theme is up there with Ancient Egypt and Leprechauns in terms of being flogged to death on slot machines. Play'n Go's Phoenix Reborn slot does things differently though, giving us a fierce-looking game that manages to bring in a bunch of different features that make it a lot of fun to play.
Phoenix Reborn is a 5 reel, 40 payline video slot set in front of an Aztec temple. Players are trying to put together winning combinations on the reels, and the icons are made up entirely of Aztec appropriate symbols. The carvings are great and have purple, red, blue, and green colours in them, making them stand out from each other. The other symbols include snakes, jaguars, and gorgeous stacked female and male warriors that are six regular symbols tall. You also get the phoenix symbol, which serves as an expanding wild on the reels whenever it appears.
There are scatter symbols, stacked symbols, and the above-mentioned wild reels included as bonus features in this game. Spinning up 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols rewards you with 7, 12, or 20 free spins respectively. Free spins can be re-triggered by landing more scatters while in the free spins mode, and the expanding wild phoenix symbol will appear on one random reel on every free spin.
Phoenix Reborn can be played on both desktop and mobile devices. The game looks equally sharp on both devices, and all of the features are available on both. If you're looking for an Aztec-themed game, I highly recommend Phoenix Reborn to you. It brings some ferociousness that many other games lack, and I think the wild feature is fantastic.
