Lost Relics is a game that has been designed by NetEnt, a slot machine with an Indiana Jones inspiration, but with a young woman taking the main role. It’s going to feature the standard high-end design that NetEnt is known for, and it will be available on all types of platforms, from mobile to desktop.
The game is playable on 5x5 reels, with a Cluster Pays system instead of regular win lines. You can get good payouts out of this slot, up to 60,000 coins being available, or 3,000x. Players will discover inside that they have access to multiple random features in the base game, along with wilds, scatters and free spins which have Hidden Chests.
Betting and Prizes
For a game from NetEnt, we’re always counting on fixed lines lately, and it couldn’t be any different in a title which uses Cluster Pays. It starts from $0.20 and it can go all the way up to $400 per spin, varying both the number of coins used per line and their value.
By the looks of it, you can get wins of up to 3,000x awarded to you, meaning as much as 60,000 coins, or $60,000. As a NetEnt slot machine, I expect it to have an RTP of over 96%, but the exact figure is not known yet.
Lost Relics Slot Features
First of all, the slot relies on the Cluster Pays system, with winning combinations requiring that at least six symbols are next to each other, touching vertically or horizontally.
To start with, let’s take a look at the game’s random features, which you can get during the paid spins that are also winning rounds. You can get three types of random features, and up to five instances of each one at the same time.
One of the random features is a Coin Win, with 3x to 30x the stake delivered by each chosen symbol. Since up to 5 are possible, you get up to 150x the bet from this, the $60,000 that I mentioned as the jackpot.
The second feature will provide you with extra wilds, 3 of them in random positions that will not be part of the already winning cluster. Up to 15 random wilds can be added to the reels, since the random features can occur up to 5 times in a spin.
There is also the possibility of getting 1 extra scatter, or up to 3 extra scatters if the feature triggers enough times.
With three scatters landed on the reels, either directly or through the random feature, you will get 10 free spins from the slot. There is an extra feature with a Hidden Chest at this point, which can be found behind the reels. The winning clusters are removed and the space behind them gets revealed, so that you can gain access to those chests. You can find inside coin wins, sticky wilds and extra free spins.
Theme & Design
The inspiration for the game is not exactly a surprise. We’ve seen other adventure themed slot machines in the past, but few have the high-quality graphics that you can observe in Lost Relics. A female Indiana Jones like character is present in some of the features, but most of the time you’re going to be alone with the 5x5 reels, which are filled with images of card suits or ancient objects. Among the latter, you have things like ceremonial daggers and gold bracelets, so things of value.
Lost Relics is not interesting just because it has the graphics of a modern slot, it also delivers the features and the Cluster Pays system that not a lot of games will offer these days.
