Sough-after software provider’s latest premium release sees players swing through the jungles of South America as they profit from expanding wilds and magic symbol upgrades
Swintt – the hit software studio behind recent smash hits The Crown and Aloha Spirit XtraLock – is inviting players to join them on an unforgettable journey to the ancient Aztec Empire in the brand new Premium release, Montezuma.
Set to an awe-inspiring backdrop of crumbling temple walls and lush jungle foliage, Montezuma sees players travel back in time to the late 14th century when the legendary Tenochtitlan emperor first ascended to the throne. Alongside the letter symbols, unique symbols to feature on the reels include precious stones of the old world including emeralds, rubies, sapphires and diamonds.
With maximum wins of 500x players’ bet, the titular Montezuma also plays an important role in lowering the slot’s overall variance by acting as a special wild symbol. Whenever he appears on the reels, not only will he substitute for any regular icon, but he’ll also expand to fill his respective column, potentially completing even more winning pay lines and creating richly rewarding combination prizes.
The other symbol players need to keep an eye out for is the golden temple scatter. Whenever three or more of these all-important icons appear during a base game spin, players will receive 12 Free Spins with a unique twist. Now, whenever a Montezuma wild appears on the reels, it will upgrade the lowest value gem symbol, potentially creating high value wins across multiple pay lines.
As an added bonus, players will also receive one Free Spin for every Montezuma symbol that lands, prolonging the feature and creating further symbol upgrades. In this manner, it’s possible to transform all gems into the highest-value diamond icon and remain in the feature indefinitely, with players also receiving an additional set of 12 Free Spins if they retrigger the bonus by landing three more scatters.
Being the latest slot in Swintt’s expansive Premium collection of games, it should come as no great surprise that the popular Risk feature also makes a welcome return. An optional mini-game that can be played after any winning base game spin, this exciting extra allows players to double or quadruple the value of their current payout by guessing the colour or suit of a hidden playing card respectively.
Having recently been shortlisted for the EGR B2B Awards 2022’s headline category, Mobile Gaming Software Supplier, players will also be delighted to discover that Montezuma is compatible with all major smartphone and tablet devices, making it easy for them to start their Aztec adventure from anywhere!
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “Swintt Premium Slots are known for their compelling casino-style gameplay and richly rewarding bonus rounds – and the all-new Aztec adventure, Montezuma, is certainly no exception.
“Our latest five-reel masterpiece combines fan-favourite features such as Free Spins and expanding wilds with a new magic symbol upgrade system that can potentially lead to wins of up to 500x. With all that and more up for grabs, it’s an incredible expedition that players won’t want to miss.”
