Some online slot games acquire considerable brand equity and this encourages their software developers to cash in on that brand equity in different ways. Microgaming has video slot avatars of its most popular three reel brands. With the availability of enhanced graphics in software many software developers have given a three dimensional face lift to some of their older games. Addition in number of paylines or introduction of additional features in the same slot game is yet another way of capturing brand equity. Realtime Gaming is one of the leading online gaming software providers in the industry. It has developed different versions of its flagship Aztec themed slot game.
The basic slot game is titled Aztec's Treasure. The ancient but wealthy civilization of the Aztecs is a popular theme for online slots and Aztec's Treasure does full justice to this theme. The Aztec King is the wild symbol. The Aztec Queen offers the highest fixed jackpot of 5,000 coins. The scatter symbol is the Idol. The other thematic symbols are Jaguar, Witch Doctor, Emblem and Necklace. High value card symbols have also been used. All symbols are elegantly crafted and depict the richness and vibrancy of the Aztec culture. Though the designing of the symbols does not affect the operational aspect of the game it helps tremendously in creating brand equity. Feature wise Aztec's Treasure has the Real Series randomly triggered progressive jackpot and an exciting free spins round triggered by the scatter Idol symbol. Players are awarded up to 25 free spins at tripled payouts and the free spins can be retriggered. Each scatter symbol also offers a bonus prize equal to the triggering bet.
In most online slot games, as in Aztec's Treasure, the free spins round can offer a bonanza of payouts. But the free spins feature is triggered when three or more scatter Idol symbols appear on the reels. Since this has a random occurrence players can wager hundreds of spins without activating this feature. This has been remedied by Realtime Gaming in a variant of Aztec's Treasure named Aztec's Treasure Feature Guarantee. Aztec's Treasure Feature Guaranteed is identical to the original slot in graphics and features. The only addition is the Feature Guarantee. If the player does not get the free spins bonus round in 150 spins then this feature is automatically triggered whether the required symbols appear on the reels or not. There is a counter on the screen that counts down the number so that players are aware as to how many spins are left before the guaranteed free spins round is awarded. This feature is made more exciting through an interactive process. Players have been provided with a Play button, which they can use to try and trigger the free spins. The Play button does no guarantee the free spins but the probability of its being activated increases as fewer spins are left in the count down. The risk is that even if the Play button fails to trigger the free spins then the counter is reset to 150.
Aztec's Treasure has a randomly triggered progressive jackpot. This pays out often but small amounts. Most online gaming software developers have the normal progressive jackpots that pay out in million plus dollars. Realtime Gaming has created such a game using the brand equity of Aztec's Treasure. In this game the progressive jackpot starts at a million dollars and hence the name of the slot has been tweaked to Aztec's Millions. Again this slot game is identical to the original, except that a new Aztec's Millions Logo symbol is introduced. When five such symbols appear on an enabled payline the progressive jackpot is hit and the lucky player becomes a millionaire overnight.
