An archeological trip to Egypt is the story behind this online slot machine from Wazdan; it’s called Relic Hunters and the Book of Faith and via the efforts of its two grave-robbing protagonists there are chances to win free spins, Bastet spins and the Pyramid Exploration bonus among other features.
Relic Hunters and the Book of Faith is a six reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; hieroglyphics line both sides of those reels but also look out for the meters at the top in which specific symbols are collected – these are all part of the main features.
The high value symbols are Bastet, the sarcophagus, the serpent, the scorpion and the scarab beetle while 10, J, Q, K and A wrapped in bandages make up the lower values. The two wild symbols are the male and female explorers and the scatter is the pyramid.
Relic Hunters and the Book of Faith Bonus Features
The two meter areas above the reels are continually filled up and then drained – the cat statue increases the one on the left by 1, 3 or 1o gems and map/compass increases the one on the right by a similar amount. These gems contribute to their own features. A mummy landing on reels one, two or three will remove 3 or 10 gems from the left meter and a mummy on reels four, five or six will remove 3 or 10 from the right.
There’s also a torch which builds up protection when it lands and this protection must be drained before the meters are affected. When the meters are full the draining will not occur.
Filling the left hand meter (Bastet) plus three more gems will trigger five free spins five wild symbols added to the reels on each spin.
Filling the right hand meter plus three more gems will award a four level picking round in which there are cash prizes, level-ups and multipliers to be won.
Landing at least three of the pyramid scatter symbols anywhere in view will award ten free spins which can’t be retriggered. One symbol will be picked at random before the spins start and if at least three land it will expand to fill all positions on its reel and pay out as a normal payline.
The female wild will move to the left one position when she lands and the male wild will move one position to the right – if they meet an extra three spins are awarded.
Relic Hunters and the Book of Faith is a slot with a long title and some complex features but it will all become clear when you actually play the game; the meter features especially keep things interesting but the big wins are in the free spins.
