Three landed huts load the love hut bonus game, where the thoughtful chief gives gifts—such as gems—the two women before a credits-awarding lovemaking. The chief hurls his spear at the golden coins and the gems encased therein are disgorged, prompting him to gather the fallen jewels. Gathering the sapphire, ruby, and citrine jewels loads the hidden treasure bonus game, where the chief pushes each of the three gems onto the keyholes in front of three out of the six treasure vaults.
Spears that impale ordinary symbols transform them into wilds. A warrior between Aztec women formation (occurs on the second, third, and fourth reels) prompts a kissing session before transforming the warrior into a “wild X2”. 3+ golden Aztec sun stones offer instant prizes capped at $20000.00. 3+ geckos (after a regular payout) offer at least nine free games, wherein “+1 free spin” geckos may reappear. Aztec Treasures’ non-progressive jackpot is $114000.00.

Ambient background: gurgling interspersed with tribal instrumental music and chirping birds. Sound effects: clinking, giggling, chuckling jaguar, and rattling.
