With a simple visual design, the reel symbols consist of the standard A, K, Q, J, and 10 royals. Additionally, there are symbols representing cups, axes, crowns, and the Quetzalcoatl statuette. The Quetzalcoatl statuette is the highest-paying symbol, offering a reward of 250 times the stake for a combination of five. The Quetzalcoatl Emblem symbol serves a dual purpose as both the wild and scatter. It can substitute for all symbols in both the base game and the bonus feature. Landing 3, 4, or 5 Quetzalcoatl Emblem symbols results in a prize of 2, 20, or 200 times the stake. Moreover, if you land 3 or more of these symbols, it triggers the Bonus Game feature, with more details provided below.
Referred to as the Wild Collect feature, orbs are gathered from each wild symbol, filling up a symbol meter. Once a meter is filled with 5 orbs, the corresponding symbol is replaced with the next mid-win symbol, enhancing the potential for bigger wins as the symbol values increase. Accumulating 5 orbs in a meter also rewards you with 2 extra free spins. Upon filling the last symbol meter, all mid-win symbols transform into the highest value Quetzalcoatl symbol.
Moreover, landing 3 or more Quetzalcoatl Emblem wild/scatter symbols triggers a retrigger of the feature, granting an additional 10 free spins. If you successfully retrigger and upgrade all symbols, you'll play with a total of 28 free spins.
