Pragmatic Play, one of today’s forerunners in providing online casino games is also taking the lead in offering slot tournaments in launching fresh releases. The latest is “Aztec Gems,” which went live last August 04, 2020. In conjunction, the launch kicked off with a free slot tournament set to run up to September 01, 2020.
Actually, most online casino game providers hold slot tournaments as a marketing tool. Although not as popular and as widely participated as the online poker tournaments, slot tournaments are now trending. Mainly because first and foremost, slot games do not require exceptional skills and experience.
Nowadays, video slots enthusiasts prefer connecting with other slot players by way of tournaments rather than play the game solo, Doing so makes their reel-spinning engagements more competitive and at the same time socially enriching.
After all, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to socially distance and have kept recreational establishments closed. Orders to stay-at-home as much as possible have left them with no other option but to mingle virtually with friends and make new acquaintances online.
That is also why slot tournaments are now trending as the new norm at online casinos throughout the globe — including in Southeast Asian countries like in Indonesia where judi slot online (gambling with slots online) is a popular form of recreation.
Free slot tournaments are actually a boon because one gets to play without having to shell out money in activating reel spins. Although the winnings will actually be earned as prizes only if a player lands a a qualified position in the leaderboard, every participant enjoys equal chances of grabbing any of the prizes at stake, particularly the major tournament prize.
Pragmatic Play’s Chief Commercial Officer Melissa Summerfield said the company takes pride in developing industry-leading games. It thrills them to introduce “Aztec Gems Deluxe”, the newest addition to Pragmatic Play’s deluxe collection. Ms. Summerfield remarked that
“Taking fan-favourites and providing fast-paced content with fun features to keep players engaged, is something we enjoy doing; making us eager to receive feedback from both fans and online casino operators.”
Brief Description of Pragmatic Play’s “Aztec Gems Deluxe”
“Aztec Gems” is easy on the eyes despite the sparkling gems appearing as stacked symbols to match, inside a 3×3 grid. Although there are only three reels housing the precious gemstones, there is a 4th reel that displays win-multipliers that can increase payout values by up to 15x.
During each spin, the 4th reel also rotates to randomly designate a multiplier. The resulting factor will then apply to any matched gemstone combinations currently displayed by the 3×3 grid.
To increase possibilities of hitting one or even multiple matched combos, the Aztec God icon serves as Wild Symbol that also emerges as Stacked Wilds, in partial or full display. .
