Pragmatic Play have some highly successful Megaways releases under their belt, but with El Dorado The City of Gold Megaways they’ve decided to play it safe and do everything by the book. The hunt for the City of Gold – El Dorado – is hardly unheard of in the world of online slots, but this is still a visually decent Aztec-themed effort. The soundtrack is a bit too dreamy for a jungle slot perhaps, but the sound effects are kind of neat.
You need to decide up front if the Ante Bet is something you want to go with, as it will cost you 25 % more per spin. The good news is that it also doubles your bonus round chances, and since the base game is mostly a grind anyway, it might be a good idea. Players looking for innovation should go elsewhere. However, if you’re content with an overall solid, albeit clichéd, megaways release, you might wanna check this one out further.

El Dorado The City of Gold Megaways Features
The face-painted male Aztec wild can appear on the horizontal top sliding reel only, and it steps in for all regular pay symbols to help you form winning combos. The Tumble Win feature removes all winning symbols from the grid, and existing or new symbols drop down from above to fill the gaps. This allows for indefinite consecutive wins on a single paid spin, as the process repeats as long as you keep winning.
The Aztec pyramid scatter can land on all reels, and you need at least 4 on the same spin to trigger the Bonus Round. You’ll benefit from an unlimited progressive win multiplier during the free spins feature, and you have 4 options per scatter tier:
You’ll get +5 extra free spins when you land 3+ scatters during the feature, and there is no upper limit to how many extra spins you can get this way.
The 200 Spins El Dorado The City of Gold Megaways Experience
After some initial tumble wins, we managed to land 4 scatters around 0:55 into the 3-minute highlights video. We decided to take our chances with the Mystery option, and it turned out to be a good call. We maxed it out with 15 free spins and a 10x starting multiplier, and you can see how we fared by hitting the play button.
Video El Dorado The City of Gold Megaways Gameplay
El Dorado The City of Gold Megaways follows the megaways formula to the letter, and in that sense the only thing we can criticize it for is the lack of originality. Pragmatic has done nothing to make this game stick out in any way, shape or form, but it’s still a solid overall production. The theme might be a cliché, but the visuals and game pace certainly gets the job done.
You probably wanna go with the Ante Bet feature turned on, as the base game grind is not all that interesting. We like that each tier of the bonus round comes with 4 options, as this gives you plenty of freedom to follow your gut feeling on each trigger. This might be a run-of-the-mill shelf filler, but it’s still a good game overall. It wouldn’t have taken too much effort to sprinkle in a unique twist or two though, something we know this developer is certainly capable of.
The game is themed around the legendary City of Gold, El Dorado, and features Aztec elements and visuals.
The Ante Bet feature costs 25% more per spin, but it doubles your chances of triggering the bonus round.
Yes, you can get +5 extra free spins by landing 3+ scatters during the Bonus Round, and there is no upper limit to how many extra spins you can get.
