The glint in the eye of the adventuring archaeologist star of this slot speaks volumes when we load up the Lost Relics Slot game. The latest in NetEnt’s Cluster Pays™ slots series. We are seeking out sets of six symbols or more, digging out coin wins as we hunt for the Lost Relics Free Spins feature. With more wins to be won and Sticky Wilds, extra spins and Coin Wins to boot, this online slot has got more legs than the Indiana Jones franchise.

Gameplay

NetEnt sets the scene superbly for this archaeological online slots adventure, right from the very start. A twinkling soundtrack greets us as we fire up this game, as does our female archaeologist adventurer. A glowing red gem floats in her hands, the size of which suggests that we will never have to work again if and when we get it home. There’s no chance that this one is ending up in a museum.

As we work by flickering firelight we look to land our clusters of six symbols or more in NetEnt’s Cluster Pays™ pay system. Card Suits make up our lower-paying symbols while valuable artefacts like Daggers, Helmet, Bracelet and Orb take the roles of high-payers. The Cluster Pays™ mechanic means that we can expect stacked symbols as we aim for big wins and, with a top payout of 6,000 coins for landing 25 Orbs, there is plenty of base game treasure to collect.

Bonuses

Aside from the multiple symbol wins we can collect during the base game, NetEnt also includes three random features to keep us ticking over. Well, the Swedish studio labels it as three separate features, but it is actually three features in one. On any winning spin the Coin Win, Extra Wild and Extra Scatter can trigger, delivering just what they promise. The Extra Scatter feature can add to any other Scatters we might have landed, which will trigger the game’s Free Spins feature.

We now have 10 free spins to uncover treasure chests – literally! Upon triggering the feature the game board disintegrates away to reveal cogs turning mysteriously beneath, and it is more of these hidden treasures that we will be looking for when we head full on into the Free Spins game. We unearth more treasures by landing winning clusters and completely uncovering treasure chests beneath. These chests deliver extra spins, Sticky Wilds and coin wins to extend our hunt for treasure.

Summary

Even as we hunt for treasure, NetEnt’s Lost Relics online slot is a real gem. Despite leading us to rich treasures our female lead only enjoys a cameo role, appearing on the front pages of newspapers when we land wins from the bonus game. You feel she deserves more limelight, though in reality she might want to remain lower-key than Indiana Jones. Either way, we shan’t complain. With multiple opportunities to win in the base game and a bonus feature that can keep digging for gold, there is plenty in Lost Relics to keep any slots adventurer’s whistle whetted.
