Net Entertainment’s take on the ever-popular theme of the intrepid traveller, exploring some mysterious place in search of ancient hidden treasures, is a five-reel 50-payline video slot called Relic Raiders.
The two Relic Raiders – a curvaceous pistol-toting blonde woman and her ruggedly handsome fellow fortune hunter – are on the hunt in a dense South American jungle. Alongside them on the reels overgrown with vegetation are a host of interesting characters and items. These include various precious stones, a treasure map, a vintage aeroplane, a treasure train, and a mischievous monkey on a pile of cold coins, among others.
The Creepy Witch Doctor is Wild
The wild symbol in Relic Raiders is hard to miss – not only because it includes the word “WILD” but also because it takes the form of a rather menacing-looking witch doctor. As always, the Relic Raiders wild can stand in for all other symbols except the bonus and scatter to complete winning paylines.
The creepy witch doctor is also the top-paying regular symbols, with 10 000 coins for five in a row on an active payline.
A Treasure Chest Full of Free Spins
The Relic Raiders scatter symbol takes the form of the coveted treasure chest, which like all scatters, does not have to appear on an active payline to win – as long as two or more appear. What’s more, when a scatter win occurs in addition to a standard win, both are paid out.
The most important thing about the Relic Raiders scatter symbol, however, is that it unlocks the free spins bonus round
Free Spins Bonus Round
When three or more treasure chest scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels, the Relic Raiders free spins bonus round is triggered. Players must then select one of the treasure chests to reveal a certain number of free spins and a multiplier.
If two of more Relic Raiders scatters appear during free spins, further frees spins or multipliers are activated. This will continue indefinitely, until all the free spins have been used. Players of online slots casino Australia should note that the maximum Relic Raiders multiplier is 5x.
The Relic Raiders are the Bonus Symbol
In addition to the scatter and the wild, there is another very special symbol in this casino video slot. The bonus symbol includes the word “BONUS” and depicts the two brave Relic Raiders ready for action. Unlike the scatter symbol, the Relic Raiders bonus symbol must appear on an active payline in order to pay out.
However, three or more bonus symbols scattered in consecutive order anywhere on the reels triggers the Relic Raiders Treasure Hunt bonus feature.
Note that, although the Treasure Hunt bonus can be triggered during free spins, free spins multipliers are not applied to Treasure hunt wins.
Relic Raiders Treasure Hunt Bonus
This multistage Relic Raiders round starts in front of a map, where players must select one of four locations in search of bonus prizes and relics. Once at their selected locations, players must choose between either different urns, each of which contains either a bonus prize or a relic.
Thereafter, players are returned to normal play and must wait for the next Treasure Hunt bonus to go in search of more treasures. Once players have collected all four Relic Raiders relics, which are saved for 36 hours, they will be allowed access to the Mystery Wins feature.
Mystery Wins for Uncovered Relics
The Relic Raiders Mystery Wins round features four gold statues. Players must click on any one of these statues to reveal their Relic Raiders Mystery Win prize.
