Lost Relics Slot Overview
NetEnt has a long history, but not as long as the backstory on their new game, Lost Relics slot, which wants you to travel to ancient times via the media of spinning reels and archaeology.
Featuring either a female Indiana Jones or a more appropriately attired Lara Croft this big-screen 5-reeler has great ambience and vibe. The hidden treasure in this dig is a big free-spins game that players will love to see clicking into place and delivering 10 freebies at its lowest level.
That’s just the cherry on the archaeological cake. Underneath it is a filling sponge of three base extra games with wilds, scatters and instant wins. And the free spins game is a gift that keeps on giving, with more spins, more prizes, and more extras to be discovered courtesy of a Hidden Chest feature.
Cluster’s last stand?
NetEnt players will already have uncovered the Cluster Pays engine. For those who are new, this is going to be a nice surprise. Instead of pay lines, wins are paid in reward for groups of symbols, up to a maximum of nine – this, say NetEnt – will lead to bigger payouts. The system has been around for a couple of years now, and it’s proved popular with players.
Beauty and a Beast of a Game
The first thing players will notice is that Lost Relics slot machine is a great looking game. Somewhere between the pop-culture archaeological signifiers mentioned at the top of this review, the symbols won’t please historical purists (Greek helmets, knives, bracelets, rubies, and nicely historic card symbols), but fit beautifully into a well-designed wider aesthetic. Ancient flutes or panpipes play away in the background in a nicely low-key soundtrack that won’t have players heading for the mute button.
How they combine is how you win, of course, and seeing groups of rubies are the big winner, with a massive 300 x slate paid out if you see a full set of 25 on the grid.
During the base game, a win triggers one of three special features. These are a Coin Win that simply grants an instant win worth up to 30 times stake. An Extra Wilds feature that puts three more wilds into the mix for starters, with the possibility of a maximum of 15. Extra scatters are added in the final feature, and these can trigger the free spins feature.
That starts out with 10 free spins. Within these are a Hidden Chest feature – essentially, a multi-reel symbol that can be uncovered to reveal extra wilds, extra free spins or instant wins.
NetEnt continues to produce winning games that players love. There’s a reason why they’re one of the big beasts of the online video slots world, and that’s very much in evidence in this game. Lost Relics slot looks great, sounds great, it’s easy to understand and to play but has rewarding extras that give a further dimension beyond the classic slot layout. It offers beginners an enjoyable experience, and seasoned gamblers the opportunity to pocket some big wins.
