August is here, and you know what that means? Another great online slots release from Microgaming at Lucky Nugget Casino. This is no ordinary slot though, Relic Seekers will be Microgaming’s first ever Pulse 8 branded game, ushering in a new era of entertainment.
Set to go live on August 14th, Relic Seekers is the online slots game everyone has been waiting for. Packed with high quality graphics, entertaining sound effects and a kick-ass backing track, the game takes you on an epic adventure with magical bonus features, Rolling Reels and seriously rewarding jackpot payouts.
Seeking Out Adventure
Relic Seekers is an action adventure online slot about a group of treasure hunters looking for priceless relics in the most remote temples and tombs in the world. You may be thinking this sounds a bit like Tomb Raider, and you would be right; just with two extra cast members and a bit of steampunk styling thrown in for good measure.
Unlike most online and mobile casino games, this one actually gives you the feeling of seeking treasures yourself. This is achieved through a collection system in the base game and the free spins bonus where you are constantly striving to complete your set.
Playing the Game
So, we know Relic Seekers is an adventure game with great visuals and awesome sound. The setup is maybe even more impressive. Structurally the game features 5 reels and 25 paylines with a Rolling Reels mechanism. The payout percentage is 96.3% and the volatility is rated as medium to high. Coin sizes range from 0.01 and go up to 5.00 per spin.
If you have loads of cash to throw around, the maximum number of coins you can bet per spin is 500 while the default is 25 (1 coin per line). The minimum bet is 0.25 and the default is 2.50. If you are playing on the maximum bet, the highest jackpot you can expect to win is 110 000 coins and 27 500 on the minimum bet, which is sizable for most online slots. Now that you know the technical details, let’s check out the game features.
Rolling Reels and Symbol Turns Wild
Firstly, there is the Rolling Reels mechanism. If you have played a few slots at Lucky Nugget Casino, you should be familiar with this by now, and know just how awesome it really is. Essentially, this is a feature that allows symbols to be replaced by new ones whenever they are used in a winning combination. If you are lucky, the new symbols will form new winning combinations starting the process all over again.
The Symbol Turns Wild feature is new and rather exciting. This is where the three high paying symbols (the main characters) turn Wild after a certain number of consecutive wins. The higher highest paying symbol requires 6 consecutive wins to turn Wild, while the other two require 4 and 2 wins respectively.
Symbols to Look out For
Relic Seekers has plenty of symbols you need to look out for. The highest paying symbols are the three main characters or treasure hunters. They include the old man, the girl and the boy. The lower paying symbols are stone ruins of some kind with cool markings.
In keeping with the theme of high quality Microgaming mobile casino games, Relic Seekers also has a Wild symbol in the form of the temple door and a Scatter symbol that looks like a large steel fan.
Free Spins and Collect a Key Feature
If you are hunting down free spins, keep an eye out for the fan symbol. This Scatter will trigger free spins when you land 3 or more anywhere on the reels. If you succeed, you will be rewarded with 10 free spins. The free spins bonus round is also where you will find the collect a key feature.
In the bonus game keys will randomly appear. If you manage to collect 3 key symbols you automatically win 2 more free spins. If you are really lucky and you collect 6 keys, you get 2 free spins, and all your subsequent wins are multiplied by 2.
Overall, Relic Seekers is a one of the best online slots we have seen in a while. Not only does it look great, it also plays well and offers generous rewards. Get set for adventure when it goes live at Lucky Nugget Casino!
