It’s always a surprise what new NetEnt game can be expected next, which theme you can look forward to and what video slot features the new game will be enriched with. While Archangels: Salvation™ and Jumanji™ have been announced already, the Lost Relics™ slot can now be added to the list of upcoming NetEnt slots in 2018. It will be a game that will take you on an archaeological quest in search of ancient treasures.
Adventurous NetEnt slots
Although I didn’t expect any new games to be launched in May 2018, I was happily surprised to see a slot preview video on NetEnt’s official YouTube channel. The game is showing an adventurous video slot that will take you on some sort of Treasure Hunt.
It’s not the first adventurous video slot created by NetEnt as a whole bunch of them can be found at the NetEnt Casinos. It was recently Asgardian Stones™ was launched, bringing an adventurous video slot inspired by Asgard, one of the Nine Realms and the home of the Asgardians in the Norse Mythology.
That’s not the first adventurous NetEnt slot launched, but it’s definitely one of the newest games that you must give a try when visiting a NetEnt Casino.
Not so new, but definitely not one of the oldies, is the Lost Island™ slot which can be seen as adventurous as the Lost Relics™ slot. Both will give you the opportunity to get familiar with some lost treasures.
Designed in the same style as Lost Relics™, there used to be the Relic Raiders™ slot, but certain games that were designed with Flash didn’t survive. With graphics too old and only standard slot features involved, these game just aren’t the hassle of the upgrade from Flash to HTML5. It would have been perfect to get into the adventurous spirit. Therefore, you either have to wait until the new adventurous NetEnt slot is launched on the 24th of May 2018 or enjoy the adventures offered in the NetEnt slots mentioned before.
Adventurous NetEnt slots, or adventurous video slots in general, are becoming as popular as can be. I think the popularity of series like Game of Thrones has something to do with this and that’s not a bad thing. These type of video slots bring a lot of activity to the reels and some adventurous music can’t be left out. A great mix of the best slot aspects will lead to some of the best video slot experiences and the Lost Relics™ slot will be no exception.
Lost Relics™ slot
With only the above preview and just a short video slot description, it’s up to me to figure out what the Lost Relics™ slot will be all about. The theme doesn’t leave me with questions, but what about the video slot features.
Let’s start from scratch and have a look at the way this NetEnt slot is built. We’ll see 5×5 reels of which I believe it will lead to an interesting gameplay.
The layout is perfect for the Cluster Pays™ mechanism, nowadays often used by NetEnt. We’ve seen this slot mechanism in several NetEnt slots including Aloha!: Cluster Pays™, The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays™, Twin Spin Deluxe™, and Emojiplanet™.
It’s a tough game to figure out with only a preview video available, but it seems that the cluster pays are leading to Extra Wilds and Extra Scatters. Symbols involved in the cluster pay disappear while being replaced by a Wild and Scatter.
Then all of a sudden I see the Scatter jumping to the right where it gets stuck in what could be a religious symbol. One Scatter doesn’t seem to make sense in the Lost Relics™ slot and out of nowhere I see two more Scatters joining the first Scatter. The symbol is now completed and all symbols left on the reels move aside after which a newspaper appears with the news telling us that 10 free spins will be activated.
This is the moment the desktop version of Lost Relics™ disappears, in exchange for Lost Relics Touch®, the mobile version of the game. It’s hard to figure out how, but it seems that during Free Spins, a Cluster Pays™ win is what’s needed for the chest to appear to deliver extra Free Spins, Coin Wins, and Wilds.
From what I’ve seen so far, it looks like the Free Spins feature in Lost Relics™ will be something to look forward to with a chance to receive new free spins, extending the Free Spins feature while Coin Wins and Wilds will be responsible for the big wins.
It seems a great mix of slot features will be available as soon as the Lost Relics™ will become available end of May 2018. The game will be offering the popular Cluster Pauys™ mechanism, Coin Wins, Extra Scatter, Extra Wild, and Free Spins.
