I have always been a fan of cluster pays slots, as I can at least somewhat follow what triggers a win across the reels. When it comes to these style games, there are few developers who do it better than NetEnt. The company has put out a staggering amount of these games recently, and they've done it again with their Lost Relics slot. This game has a brooding Spartan theme to it, and while it falls short of some of its competition, it is still a game well worth your time.
Lost Relics is a 5 reel cluster pays slot that brings with it a ton of combinations that can set off a win. Here, you're looking to combine 6 or more identical icons, which will trigger the win. Obviously, the more icons strung together, the higher the win. Unlike many other cluster pays games, this slot doesn't remove the symbol and cascade the reels down. You're simply given what you're handed. I feel this is a bit of a letdown, but at least its different from other similar games we've seen recently.
Icons in Lost Relics are a combination of standard symbols (clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades) as well as swords with shields, spartan helmets, rings, and gold and red orbs. There are silver free spins icons, gold w wilds, and gold lions.
Features in the slot include wilds, scatters, free spins, stacked wilds, and sticky wilds. Free spins are set off when three scatters are collected on the reels. Wilds are pretty prevalent as well, with the game offering up to 15 on any spin of the reels which would set off a large win. The slot's features, when combined with game layout give us a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.3%, which is very competitive for an online slot.
I will say that in my personal opinion, the Lost Relics video slot does fall a bit short. The lack of cascading reels is frustrating to me, as it takes away a lot of my opportunity to hit it big and add longevity to the game. Still, I did manage to see a lot of features pop up, and this made the game a bit of fun. Still, I will say that this isn't something that I'm itching to test my luck with, but I feel that there are a lot of people who will enjoy playing this mysterious slot.
