The Wombat says: Channel your inner Jones, Wombat fans in this awesome slot game from NetEnt. Lost Relics will take you on an archeological mission in search of ancient relics and artefacts, plus some potential chunky payouts if you’re very lucky. This game has the potential to be a cracker, but will it live up to the hype? Let’s take a look.
Look and Feel
As always, slick and sharp graphics are the order of the day in this NetEnt slot which beats even the Aladdin’s Legacy slot machine on the looks stakes. In fact the design is so ruddy good, that this wombat could have sworn he was in the Temple Of Zoom…
Lost Relics Slot Game Play
Lost Relics is a 5 reel, 5 row slot (we do like an expanded set of reels- if you like a big grid you should also try the Hansel & Gretel Treasure Trail slot by the way…just saying).
This Relics game is from Net Entertainment with an interesting game mechanic called Cluster Pays. What’s all that then? Well, if you land groups of the same symbols together horizontally or vertically, they can form clusters of 9 symbols or more, and clusters pay coins! Regardless if they’re on a paying line or not. Which means you can say goodbye to those boring old win lines!
This game will expand your mind (a bit like the Archangels Salvation slot and Finn and the Swirly Spin). These ain’t no 3 reel fruities!
What with it having an archeological theme, it will come as no surprise to you that your symbols on the reels are made up a bunch different of dusty relics. These include: a dagger, a roman gladiator helmet, an antique bracelet and a snake wrapped around the red ruby as your high value symbols, while your lower symbols represented by the spades, diamonds, clubs and hearts. The snake is the highest paying icon offering up to 1,000x your bet for 25 of a kind.
The W is the wild symbol in Lost Relics slot and will do the usual job of replacing all other symbols on the reels (apart from the scatter). And speaking of which, the Scatter is the trinket with Scatter on it in black and white. Keep your eyes peeled for this beauty.

If you get a scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, you will trigger the Free Spins feature and you’ll scoop 10 free spins (scatters can appear anywhere in a winning cluster). Next you need to unlock the entire screen by form winning clusters during the round to find the hidden treasures behind the wheels. If you manage to unlock all the symbols, one of the treasure chests will be unlocked and will offer you Free Spins, Extra Wilds or some decent coin wins. Hurrah!
