Look and Feel
Lost Relics slot has few competitors when it comes to its graphics: they have movie quality good looks: this game is a feast for the eyes.
The scene is set with a bird’s eye view of an archaeological dig with spades, ropes, a blazing fire and more: we’re in the middle of a dig in other words. It’s in the same ball-park as the Coins of Egypt slot– also by NetEnt – with a focus on treasures hidden under the mists of time. Think Indiana Jones with a female lead and you are halfway there.
The sounds effects are good too: the stuff of adventuring and treasure hunting.
Lost Relics is a five reels and five rows game. The name of the game here is to collect clusters of matching symbols: six of the same icons adjacent to each other on the reels.
The play symbols are a set of intricate treasures, the Lost Relics of the game’s title. There is an eye-catching snake’s head around a red gem (land 25 of these and trigger a gold rush with a 300x your bet win), a ring with a lion’s head, a gladiator’s plumed helmet, and a jewel encrusted shield and sword.
The lower value icons of the game are the four suites of the card deck in wooden shapes.

Land the Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 to activate the free spins bonus feature which kicks off with a generous ten free spins.
What’s fun about this feature is that there is a Lost Relic behind the grid of icons, a disguised wooden treasure chest.
You can reveal the booty but making a winning combo on top of the chest – which can be partially or fully revealed by your win.
Each time you reveal one of three types of hidden treasure chests you access extras, and the chests will become larger as you reveal them.
You will trigger a treat in the form of a Coin Win, or you might trigger a single Sticky Wild which is added to the reels for the duration of the feature.
Last but not least, Extra Free Spins are available to re-trigger.
