Online gaming content provider Pragmatic Play has released a new Aztec empire-themed slot game called Secret City Gold. The new online game “uncovers the mysteries of the Aztecs” through a journey to their empire, “where patterns hold the key to big wins,” the supplier said of the title’s background and story.
Played across 5×4 reels, the slot is home to symbols including monkeys, tigers, snakes and more, which must form matching combinations across the title’s 25 paylines to award a win. These symbols are joined by wilds, which substitute all other symbols in the game except for the scatter symbols, “enabling players to create wins.”
Patterns are also a key mechanic within this release, explains Pragmatic Play, as during any spin there is a chance that a random shape will appear on the reels that mark certain positions in a pattern. All symbols within this shape transform into the same icon and award a win, with a multiplier up to 10x also being attached to the win.
— Pragmatic Play (@PragmaticPlay) January 16, 2023 Three scatters are required to award eight free spins. Here, each pattern formed awards a general incrementally increasing multiplier of 1x which works in conjunction with the pattern’s own generated multiplier to increase the winning potential. Additionally, any scatters landed during the free spins round will award an extra spin.
This latest slot release follows hot on the heels of recent launches like Pinup Girls, Wild Wild Bananas and Dragon Hero, which reside amongst a collection of over titles in Pragmatic Play’s games portfolio. The provider currently produces up to seven slot titles a month, while also delivering Live Casino, Virtual Sports and Bingo games as part of its multi-product offering, available through one single API.
It also follows recent partnerships signed by the provider, including an agreement reached last week with Switzerland’s Grand Casino Bern. The content deal expands Pragmatic Play’s presence in Europe, and will see the company provide slot and live casino content to the casino’s flagship online brand, 7melons.ch.
