Released as far back as 2019, Aztec Gold Megaways remains – no pun intended – something of a gold standard for the application of the Megaways mechanic.
Incredibly, this was Big Time Gaming’s first foray into Megaways, but the developer hit the ground running with a free slot demo that features a couple of special tricks up its sleeve.
Based on an Aztec theme, unsurprisingly, this game features 117,649 ways to win with every spin, and a top prize of 19,200x your stake.

Aztec Gold Megaways is a medium-to-high volatility slot, and it has an RTP of 95.99%.
It’s a game that players of all budgets can get involved with, as a minimum bet of 0.10 up to 20.00 at the top end confirms.
You’ll have six reels to work with on each spin, and note that the number of symbols per reel can vary from three to seven with each turn – such is the mystery of the Megaways mechanic.
The Aztec Gold Megaways slotis home to a dazzling array of special features – both in the base game and in the bonus round.
As has become commonplace, Big Time Gaming has implemented the avalanche – or ‘cascading’ as you may know it better – reel set, which means that you can collect chains of wins. For each winning spin, the symbols involved disappear and are replaced with new icons. If you land another combo, the process continues until you fail to bag a winner.
One of the standout features in Aztec Gold Megaways is undoubtedly the Gold Cash Re-Spins. This is a free spins game, and one that is triggered by landing five of the ‘sun disc’ scatter symbol. You’ll be handed three spins off the bat, and the triggering scatters will become sticky throughout these turns.
Every additional scatter symbol here tops up your re-spin count to three – these are also sticky, and you can in theory re-trigger the free spins an infinite number of times.
Each of your reels in the Gold Cash Re-Spins feature has a multiplier attached to it of up to 10x, and at the end of your free spins, these are multiplied by any scatters that are ‘stuck’ on that particular reel. The result? Some rather tasty payouts when your luck is in.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the sun disc symbols also carry the name of one of four jackpots on them. Fill a reel with one of these jackpots and you will win the corresponding amount – the Mega jackpot is 1,000x your stake!
While Big Time Gaming hasn’t gone all out with the Megaways mechanic, it has certainly built enough features into Aztec Gold Megaways to satisfy the most discerning of slot gamers.
There’s a huge top prize and cascading reels to enjoy, but it’s that Gold Cash Re-Spins game that is the cherry on the top of an already satisfying cake.
