Lost slot is another ancient Egyptian slot, this time from Betsoft Gaming. This slot however is very different to most of its counterparts. Featuring 3D graphics and lots of animation the game really does stand out in a swarm of other Egyptian themed slots. Lost slot tells the story of a Victorian era archaeologist who has discovered an ancient Egyptian tomb. The five reels only have three symbols per reel, but do offer a lot of bonus games. Lost slot is a high variance slot, which means that small wins don’t happen often. You have to be patient and wait for the big ones. Each line is optional and can be played for up to five coins. Each coin can be worth 0.02 up to 0.05 currency units.
The graphics in Lost slot are all 3D and most things in it look like they are made from solid stone. The reels are all stone edged, and look like the door to a mummies tomb. Various gold items litter the game, including the edges of the reels. Behind the reels can be seen an Egyptian temple with lots of columns and flaming torches. Everything in Lost slot is theme based from the buttons at the bottom to the character standing next to the reels. The buttons are all done to look like gold artefacts and the writing on them move with a satisfying Clunk sound when you click on them. On the right of the reels is the archaeologist who keeps up a running commentary about how he is feeling. The music plays all the time, but as long as you are actually spinning the reels it won’t get too much.
The symbols in are instantly recognisable to anyone who has ever played an ancient Egypt themed slot before. We can find Ankhs, scarabs and of course the Eye of Ra. These however look very different to other slots as they are all in 3D. The Eye of Ra has been done to look like a carved relief on a temple wall. The bottom paytable symbols are the scarab which look like an actual beetle, the golden Ankh, Anubis who looks decidedly cartoon like and the Eye of Ra. The three highest paying symbols are a shifty looking Egyptian guy, a golden mummy and our archaeologist.
Centre Reel Wild
The staff symbol is the games wild, and can only be found on the centre reel, reel three. This will then expand with a nice little animation to cover the whole reel. The wild carries with it a 2x multiplier that will be applied to any win it forms a part of.
Centre Reel Respins
This is a feature that we can find on a number of Betsoft’s games. When you form a winning combination, the centre reel will respin after the win has been awarded. This can lead to more wins. The centre reel will carry on respinning with each win until no more wins are found. With each win a multiplier that is shown in the upper right hand corner increases and is eventually added to you wins.
Monkey Click Me
What would an adventure story be without a monkey? The monkey in Lost slot belongs to the archaeologist and can be found on reel four. Finding him in any position will cause him to jump around the reels, looking behind symbols that you choose to reveal prizes.
