What an appropriate name for a slot, don’t you think? After all, you’ve either lost your treasure and you’re trying to search for it back, or you’re just on the look our for treasure. Is Pragmatic’s Lost Treasure a little gem, or no better than a mirage in the desert. With a house edge of 3.63% and a host of features, it certainly deserves to be considered. So, let’s take a closer look.
Presented over a typical 5x3 setup with 20 right-to-left paylines, this slot comes across as a mature and considered game; after all it is from such a provider. It is fairly basic in its approach, but there is a host of different ways to excite the player.
It’s all about the looks
Now, we’re not going to patronise you with a detailed description, I mean, look at the name for Christ sakes (sic). But there are a few key symbols that we ought to dwell upon.
The wild in the game is our explorer, an important figure in a game about looking for treasure I’m sure you’ll agree. The symbol substitutes all other symbols to form wins, except for the scatter. Doubling any wins that are associated with it too.
Scatter-wise, we have the Treasure Chest. Positioning itself as the key to free spins, this symbol will trigger the free spins feature should you get 3, 4 or 5 across the reels. It’s the game’s big win symbol, as if you get 5 across the reels, you’ll be looking at 100x your stake per spin. Ouch!
Hit me with the features
Ok, we got a bit excitable about the features, in all honestly there’s just one killer feature, and it comes in the form a of free spins. Three or more of the scatters will initiate the spins, 15 being the base amount with a 3x multiplier. The free spins can be retriggered.
As you busy yourself through the dusty and ruined remains of the lost temple, spare a thought for those who had to wrangle with such a cliched theme and come up with something decent to look at. They did, we like Lost Treasure. Well done. It’s a fairly basic game if we’re honest, and that might be enough for some, but more seasoned gamers might just fall asleep before they get the treasure. Good edge, but not enough to interest us too much. Shame. Next…
