iSoftBet Pays Homage to Popular Slot with Aztec Gold Mines Release
Top-tier content developer and aggregator iSoftBet has released Aztec Gold Mines, a new minesweeper-themed game that brings tribute to its highly-praised Aztec Gold Mewgaways game. The news comes after the developer freshened up its beloved Twisted Tale series with Musketeer Megaways at the end of May and launched retro slot Golden Jokers Double Up during the same month. Now, iSoftBet is getting ready to be acquired by International Game Technology for $174 million. Nonetheless, the company whose goal is to constantly build quality games that are inspirational, innovative, and entertaining has not paused its creative process. On the contrary, its new 5×5 game with adjustable game difficulty and volatility is yet another proof of its ongoing efforts to create a unique portfolio that expresses the brand’s personality.

Sweeping Mines for the Win
Aztec Gold Mines is a Minesweeper-based slot from the same provider that also created Gold Digger Mines, another hit game carrying the same fascinating mining theme. The new game asks players to first choose up to 15 mines. The goal of the game is for players to keep picking one tile after the other to beef up their total win while making sure not to reveal the mine that will abruptly end the round and results in a loss. The game allows players to choose their preferred level of volatility, difficulty, number of mines, and size of their bet. The maximum win is set at 288x the bet.
As the player continues to pick one square after the other, they will notice golden Win Multipliers or Montezuma Mine symbols behind them. The Montezuma Mine is the symbol that will trigger a loss. Players who opt for a larger number of Mines at the beginning of the game can cause the Win Multiplier to grow at a faster pace. At the same time, this will also make the Montezuma Mine symbol harder to avoid.
Aztec Gold Mines – Classic Feel & Innovative Approach
iSoftBet’s head of games Mark Claxton considers the game reunites the popular design and theme of the original game while also introducing players to innovative gameplay that matches modern-day gamers online. The pick and click game that brings players cool tiger and snake animations on both sides of the gameboard is expected to become yet another global hit in the provider’s impressive portfolio.
