The Aztecs were a group of people who lived in the central portions of Mexico for hundreds of years. They built some huge pyramids, conducted human sacrifices, and expanded to control a large portion of Central America until the Spanish arrived and decimated their population. A lot of the Aztec culture is a mystery to much of the world, as people have only been exposed to little bits of information that is in the realm of popular culture. Montezuma by WMS Gaming is a slot that takes those bits of pop culture and builds them into what it hopes is a slot that people will want to play.
Montezuma is a 5 reel, 30 payline video slot that features a theme that contains a jungle theme as well as card symbols, eagles, headdresses, idols, snakes, a Queen, a pyramid, and a King symbol. The artwork in the game is hand drawn, and while not the most impressive looking slot, it does look quite nice. Montezuma originally made its way to land casinos throughout North America, and proved to be popular enough to eventually find its way into the online betting market.
Feature wise, Montezuma is a game that is a bit light when you compare it to other WMS games on the market. The game contains Free Spins, Stacked Symbols, and a Random Multiplier that can help generate some decent sized wins. While we have seen other WMS games with much deeper features (Nemo’s Voyage, Yahtzee), Montezuma is still decent in this aspect and delivers a decent amount of entertainment.
If you are looking to play a WMS game that has proven to be very popular in land casinos and don’t mind seeing a game that is a bit light on features, Montezuma may be just the game you are looking for.
