Lost Relics is a 5 reel, 5 row slot from Net Entertainment that uses the Cluster Pays engine. Available to play on all compatible devices (like Android and iOS) from 20p to £400 per spin, you go on an archaeological quest for ancient treasures. It comes with 3 random base game features as well as a Free Spins feature where you can open treasure chests to reveal extra free spins, sticky wilds and cash prizes.
First of all, I must say that Lost Relics looks amazing – what looks like a set from the Indiana Jones movies, symbols on the reels include ancient style hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds as well as daggers, Roman helmets, bracelets and snakes wrapped around rubies.
You form wins by getting a cluster of 6 or more symbols horizontally or vertically adjacent to the same symbol – the snake wrapped around the red ruby and the bracelet are the most rewarding symbols giving you 1,000 times your stake for 25 covering the grid.
Lost Relics comes with 3 randomly triggered base game features – these can occur when you get a winning spin. Up to 5 instances of 1 of the 3 features can trigger. Here’s what you can benefit from:
- Coin Win feature – 1 of the winning symbols gives you a cash prize of between 3 and 30 times your stake. This means you could win up to 150 times your stake altogether.
- Extra Wild feature – 3 extra wilds are randomly placed on the reels in positions that are not part of winning cluster for extra wins. If you get 5 instances of the feature, 15 extra wilds will be added!
- Extra Scatter feature – 1 of the symbols that’s part of the winning cluster gives you an extra scatter meaning you could end up with 3 if you’re lucky.
If you get a scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, you will trigger the Free Spins feature with 10 free spins awarded. Scatters can appear anywhere in a winning cluster from the Extra Scatter feature thus increasing your chances of activating the Free Spins feature.
Anyway, once in, it comes with a Hidden Chest feature – a chest occupying a number of spaces is hidden behind the reels, at random. Spaces under winning clusters are then uncovered and can reveal hidden chests – you can uncover small, medium and large chests. These contain extra free spins, sticky wilds and coin wins. Extra free spins give you more free spins with the Sticky Wild giving you a randomly placed sticky wild for the duration of the feature. The Coin Win can give you cash bonuses of up to 30 times your stake.
Lost Relics really is a good slot from NetEnt – as you’d expect. Visually stunning, it comes with plenty of bonus features. I particularly like the Extra Wild feature in the base game which can result in 15 extra wilds coming into play. Variance wise, it’s in the medium range with maximum wins of 1,000 times your stake on every spin/free spin. If you like the theme, Playtech’s Legend of the Jaguar is highly recommended.
