Aztec Riches Casino Review

Aztec Riches Casino:

Aztec Riches Online Casino is, probably not too-surprisingly, an Aztec-themed casino. Of course, like many casinos the theme is not heavily-used, but definitely makes the casino stand out from some of the more 'plain' competitor sites. This casino is powered by software from Microgaming - one of my favorite software manufacturers. So, being in the mood for a gamble, I decided to see what was on offer at this online site.

Aztec Riches Casino does have a Flash interface available, but it is the download version of the casino that is heavily promoted. The software that must be installed to play is obtained from the main site, which incidentally has section on all the important things a player needs to know. This download is actually just 387k in size, which is great for those on a slow connection. However, the installer does request further files from the internet upon launching and as such most users will have to wait a few further minutes to get the casino installed.

Once up and running, the casino displays the games lobby. However, a player isn't allowed to select a game or move around the lobby unless they have logged in. Of course, account creation is simple and a player can chose to play in a number of popular currencies such as UK £ and US $. I created my account without problem and personally selected to play in US $.

Once in the lobby, a player is presented with a menu system that displays all the different games available. At Aztec Riches Casino, a huge number of games are playable - and as such games are broken down by type. This means that Blackjack, for example, can be found under the 'table games' section. A nice touch is that every casino game can be previewed before it's loaded. As such, a slot game will display a screenshot of the game along with details such as lines played and jackpot amount.

When it comes to depositing at Aztec Riches Casino, the usual selection of deposit options are available, including favorites such as NETeller, Fire Pay and Credit Cards. New players are also able to boost their bankroll considerably thanks to the huge deposit bonus available.

A player is able to get a 50% match on their first deposit, a 25% match on their second and a 20% match on their third. While this might not sound huge, the actual amount offered totals a huge $850! Of course, wagering conditions are attached, but for those that like free sign-up money, things don't get much bigger than this! Having said that, I actually decided on this occasion to forgo the sign-up bonus and as such deposited $100 of my hard-earned cash.

When playing, I usually am very systematic with regards to playing similar games in quick succession - for example, I may play a good selection of table games before moving on to slot games. However, on this occasion I decided to randomly jump between different games as they took my fancy. Specifically, I began my play this time on the single-hand Jacks or Better Video Poker game.

This game is an old favorite of mine, mainly because the strategy to be used when playing it is pretty simple to master. Of course, it doesn't mean that every hand is going to be a winner - I myself am still chasing the elusive Royal Flush! Betting on the game is simple with a player choosing to play between 1 and 5 coins per hand.

However, whereas the majority of online casinos offer this came with coin sizes ranging between $0.25 and $5 (max $25 bet), Aztec Riches offers a maximum bet of $25 per coin - that's a bet size of $125! This is definitely a huge stake, but just imagine hitting a Royal Flush with that bet in play - that's a pay off of $100,000!

On this particularly session I actually didn't start so well - in fact, I was down to $60 after just a few hands. Having said that, I was playing $5 per hand! Just when I was in for a bad session though, I landed a lovely 4 of a Kind win for a cool $125 pay off. This just shows the volatility of the game. All very exciting though!

Of course, while wins are the things that keep people playing, it's important to have a game that looks and sounds good. Thankfully, Aztec Riches Casino definitely rates highly in both of these areas. The graphics used in all the games are of the highest quality. Similarly, many of the games have background sound effects and even dealer voiceovers.

Add to this 'expert features' such as 'best play' strategy cards, and it's easy to become completely entranced in what Aztec Riches Online Casino has to offer.

After playing the Jacks or Better game I moved on to some of the other Video Poker games available. A huge variety of games are offered with many playable in multi-hand varieties. This means player can bet on 4, 10, 50 or even 100 hands at once!

One of the other games I played was the excellent Chain Mail game. Aztec Riches Casino offers a huge selection of slot games ranging from classic-style three-reel games to huge multi-line video slots with massive progressive jackpots. This particular slot is a video slot played over 20 lines. The jackpot is a nice 6000 coins, but very good payouts can be achieved from the bonus game also. This is achieved through landing the correct symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. Once activated this bonus allows a player to keep picking 'doors' behind which are hidden a variety of bonuses. The game also features cool scatter symbols and wild multipliers to boost a players winning potential. I actually did well here and on one spin lined up a 5-of-a-kind win for a cool 750-coin win.

One of the other slots I played was the Double Magic Mega Spin game. Double Magic is a classic-style three-reel game. However, with Mega Spin it means that multiple machines can be played at the same time. A maximum of 9 machines can be played at once, and while the volatility of these Mega Spin games is huge, it's a real rush to see all the reels of the various machines spinning at once!

Of course, some people like a game that isn't as volatile as slots and video poker machines can be. For these people, the table games available at Aztec Riches Casino should definitely fit the bill. A whole range of games are available, from classics like Blackjack to more modern games such as 3-Card Poker and Pai Gow Poker. Many games also have sub-categories. Blackjack, for example, can be played using a variety of rules from European to Vegas Strip to Atlantic City.

When it comes to betting limits, again high-rollers will be impressed with the $2000 maximum blackjack limit. A nice $0.50 low bet is also available for us less extravagant players!

Unfortunately, despite a few decent wins along the way, by the time I had finished my tour of Aztec Riches Online Casino my account balance was back at zero. I know though that you really cannot expect to win all the time! Of course, winners have nothing to fear at Aztec Riches; it's usual for this casino to pay winners in 48-72 hours after making a withdrawal.

The customer support offerings at Aztec Riches Casino are definitely something positive about this casino. Support personnel can be contacted via email and also via 4 toll-free telephone numbers. However, the casino website also has a 'call me back' function meaning anybody can speak to a support representative completely free of charge. This is something that a few casinos have recently implemented and definitely shows as a positive sign of a good casino in my book.

To conclude, I think Aztec Riches is a very decent casino. Although I think the theme is actually a little gimmicky, when it comes to the actual games the selection is great with each game available presented using excellent graphics and sound effects. The huge betting limits on many of the games will also appeal to low and high-rollers alike. Customer support works very well as does the banking function. With a massive sign-up bonus available, I definitely think Aztec Riches is worth trying out. Who knows, you might win big and make this your casino of choice!
