Aztec Falls Review
Northern Lights Gaming has decided to follow-up on their somewhat obscure brick & mortar slot imitation, Niagara Falls, with a more streamlined video slot release simply called Aztec Falls. You get similar features in both games though, and this very much includes the Pachinko-style element that’s the most innovative and noticeable thing about these 2 installments.
A random amount of coins can drop down the Pachinko matrix that overlays the regular 5x3 slot grid at random times, awarding cash prizes as they hit the bottom slots. A single coin does the same, awarding 1 of 4 different features, and you’re guaranteed 1 of 4 fixed jackpots when the Jackpot Wheel triggers. You can gamble your jackpot up to 5,000x if you dare, but you’ll never go completely empty handed from this feature no matter what you choose.
Aztec Falls Slot Features
The regular Wild symbol steps in for all pay symbols to help complete winning combinations, and it pays 10x your stake for 5 of a kind wins. The Coin symbol can appear on reel 5 only, and it triggers the Coin Drop Bonus feature in the base game.
You will then see a big coin roll towards the center on top of the reels, and it falls into a dark hole before it reappears in a smaller version on the grid. The coin drops down ‘pachinko style’, crashing into pins before it finally ends up in a Bonus Slot below the reels. This triggers 1 of the 4 following features (these shift randomly for each bonus slot per spin):
- Wilds - replaces the symbols on the highlighted coin trail with wild symbols.
- Jackpot - Triggers the Jackpot Wheel bonus game (see below).
- Stacked - awards a respin with stacked symbols.
- Multiplier - boosts the current win by x2, x3, x4 or x5.
- Blank - does nothing at all.
The Jackpot Wheel guarantees 1 of 4 fixed jackpots. These are the Mini, Minor, Super and Mega jackpots, worth 30x, 200x, 1,000x and 5,000x your stake, respectively. You can then choose to gamble your jackpot on a red/green segmented Wheel, and winning awards the next jackpot tier (the Mega Jackpot cannot be gambled). If you lose the gamble by landing on red, a mystery prize is awarded as the feature ends.
The Cash Fall Bonus triggers at random times in the base game, and you will then see a bunch of coins drop down the pachinko matrix. These coins end up in cash slots worth between zero and 10x your stake, and you win the total sum awarded by all the coins.
You need to land 3 golden pyramid bonus scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger the Free Spins Bonus, and this awards 5 free spins. The bonus slot feature works differently than in the base game, as one or more slots will randomly display “wild” at the end of a free spin. A stacked totem wild then comes crashing down filling the whole reel, and it remains in place for the duration of the bonus round. It pays the same as regular wilds, and the free spins round cannot be retriggered.
The 200 Spins Aztec Falls Slot Experience
The Coin Drop Bonus gave us the Jackpot Wheel, and this happens around the 40-seconds mark. We landed the Mini Jackpot, but you can see for yourself how far we took it in the Jackpot Gamble. The random Cash Fall Bonus triggers towards the middle of the almost 4-minutes video, and the Free Spins round starts at 2:45. Check it all out by hitting the play button below.
We can start by saying that we really enjoyed the Pachinko element that’s been incorporated into this game, and we hope it gains more traction this time than what it did with the very brick-and-mortar predecessor, Nigara Falls. The innovative concept opens up plenty of opportunities that can be implemented in different ways by different developers. Northern Lights Gaming should trademark this mechanic asap (if they haven’t already), as they might be sitting on a goldmine that can, with further development, rival the slot/bingo hybrid concept; Slingo.
The Cash Fall Bonus has the ‘oddly satisfying’ quality that can partly explain why Pachinko is so popular in certain countries (not least Japan), although it has never really been properly introduced in the West. However, you’ll need the Jackpot Wheel to stand a chance at cracking the 5,000x potential. With only 5 free spins, the most you can hope for is 1,000x in total, so it’s a good thing that you can gamble to increase your jackpot. The Pachinko element steals the show in this release, and we hope it’s developed into a slot/pachinko hybrid concept that can become its own genre.

If you enjoy Aztec Falls Slot you should also try:
Niagara Falls - is a Northern Lights Gaming release that mimics a physical slot machine in a very convincing way, and it comes with very similar Pachinko-inspired mechanics and features as the game at hand. The bonus round is identical, but the Coin Drop features are different and there is no jackpot wheel. The max win is 1,009x, which may help explain the lack of attention this release has gotten.
Zuma Riches - is a Maya-inspired release from another Microgaming partner, namely GONG Gaming Technologies, and the ante bet golden spins increase your jackpot chances. You can land jackpots up to 10,000x your stake, and there is also a cash bonus pick ‘em game. The volatility is casually low.
Aztec Blox - is a volatile Leander release that revolves around the Bonus Blox feature. Multiplier blox up to x100 appears above the regular reels, and these are activated by landing 3 scatters. There is also a bonus round with up to x1,000 bonus blox, and the blox multiplier feature triggers more often during the free spins round.
