We Check Out the Latest Tumbling Reels Slot Aztec Wilds From Iron Dog Studio!
Mr Green Casino has recently added the latest Iron Dog Studio slot, Aztec Wilds to their casino, after the very popular release of Pirate Kingdom Megaways players have definitely started to take a bigger interest in the Iron Dog slot releases including us!
Aztec Wilds is a 5×4 reel, 1024 pay anyway format machine with tumbling reels, initial comparisons to Gonzo’s Quest spring to mind given the overall theme and mechanics but thankfully Iron Dog has altered plenty of the gameplay to make this slot quite unique and well worth checking out.
Whilst there are no rising multipliers for wins in the base game this feature does get added during the free spins, instead you will find expanding wilds that can cover an entire reel along with sticky wilds that remain on the reels as long as new wins are created to keep the base gameplay interesting.
The main bonus round trigger is unusual too, requiring successive wins to trigger it, this is tracked by a symbol to the left of the reels which gradually fills with colour as wins are recorded on it. The novel twist here is that if you manage to score more than 4 successive wins then extra spins are added to the bonus round and even a starting multiplier value.
The maximum starting free spins are 20 with a starting multiplier of 6x, a regular trigger is 14 free spins with no multiplier and this can definitely have a big impact on how the bonus round will play out, with rising multipliers on each win scored during the bonus round that does not reset, a 6x multiplier is a very nice start to this kind of bonus round!

Expanding Wild Symbol
When an Expanding Wild symbol lands on the top position of a reel it will expand to cover the entire reel with Wilds.
The Sticky Wild symbol can only appear on the middle reel, and will tumble after any wins are created but stay on the reels until no more winning combinations are formed.
The Free Spins is triggered by landing successive wins in the base game, 4 are required to trigger the bonus round and any further wins after this increase the starting number of free spins and then the starting multiplier value as follows,
- 4 successive tumble wins awards 14 Free Spins and no extra starting multiplier
- 5 successive tumble wins awards 16 Free Spins and no extra starting multiplier
- 6 successive tumble wins awards 16 Free Spins and a 3x starting multiplier
- 7 successive tumble wins awards 20 Free Spins and a 3x starting multiplier
- 8+ successive tumble wins awards 20 Free Spins and a 6x starting multiplier
During the free spins any winning spins results in the Multiplier value growing by 1x, this rising multiplier feature lasts for the entire duration of the bonus round.
Aztec Wilds Slot
The Aztec Wilds slot from Iron Dog Studio is another enjoyable slot release, the twists to the gameplay on this tumbling reel slot, particularly the addition of Expanding and Sticky Wilds means the base gameplay remains quite interesting. The way in which the bonus round is triggered is also fun as scoring just those extra few wins can result in a much more potent bonus round with a 6x starting multiplier and more free spins.
In our playtests, we had bonus rounds in the range of 30x stake to well over 200x stake, since this slot is limited to 6000x stake single wins were are presuming there is plenty more potential on offer here with some crazy multiplier values possible.
Overall it’s an interesting alternative to slots like Gonzo’s Quest, with the rising multiplier values and 1024 ways this definitely offers enough unique features to make it well worth checking out, so if you are already a fan of avalanche/tumbling reels slots this is a worthy addition.
