Relic Seekers

Relic Seekers

Most casino software developers have an action and adventure game in their arsenal. Relic Seekers is Microgaming’s attempt at the ever-popular genre. On the face of it, the video slot looks like most others. There are 5 reels and 25 lines, laden with explorer imagery, mysterious symbols, and heroes. Once you get past the paint job, though, there is a fair bit to enjoy about Relic Seekers. Microgaming has done a stellar job, not just of coming up with something which can compete with rival sites, but also producing a few original features which work alongside old favourites, as you will see. 

For starters, the wagering range in this slot is not only fair but also flexible. Stakes cost as little as 25p a turn, which is to be expected for a 25-line slot. They can, however, rise to a considerable £500 maximum stake if you’re flush with cash. All the while, slot players can compete to walk away with a haul which is worth around 2,250x a bet. Thrown in the 2x multipliers that this game has to offer, and you’re looking at a total non-progressive jackpot worth a tidy 4,500x a bet. 

Special Features 

Three characters appear in this game. There is Professor Morgan, Nora and a character known bizarrely as Free Man. The latter is the best-paying icon in the game, too. Lanterns appear as wild icons, and they can substitute for anything save for scatters. 

Microgaming’s popular Rolling Reels feature returns for this game. It feels like an age since it has been seen in a new slot. This system removes winning symbols from the reels and allows new ones to drop down. In an additional twist, when two or more consecutive wins occur via the Rolling Reels feature, the three human character icons can turn into wild symbols one by one. 

Bonus Features 

Of course, like most Microgaming slots, there is a free spin round in the slot, too. It is triggered when three or more scatters pop up on the reels. Players will always start with 10 free games, no matter how many scatters they land. Once the round begins, players can collect keys which appear on the reels. These keys will unlock additional spins, the 2x multiplier mentioned earlier on in this review, and other goodies. It is worth noting that the usual Rolling Reels and character transformation features are also present during this bonus round, so there is a plethora of ways to win. 

Overview 

Microgaming is used to producing UK slots which are well above anything many other developers can provide. The fact that they have done it again here won’t surprise many. However, players might have been curious as to whether the software developers could create an action and adventure game which would stand out against the crowd. Naturally, the Relic Seekers slot manages to accomplish both tasks. It is original, has inventive new features and still manages to find time for some classic Microgaming goodies, such as Rolling Reels.
