It seems that online slots players currently have a thing for adventure-themed games, and so it is no great surprise that development companies are working hard to create more new titles for the genre. Relic Seekers is one of the most recent, and was created exclusively for Microgaming by Pulse 8 Studios. An Asian setting sets this title apart from the rest, and provides a refreshingly unique atmosphere as you embark on a quest through an ancient tomb in search of an equally ancient relic.
Welcome to the Dragon’s Vein
This is a five-reel game with 25 pay lines, and it is set in the Dragon’s Vein, which is an underground tomb. The backdrop here is as foreboding as the adventure which awaits you, so expect to navigate your way by the light of flickering lanterns as you follow the journey of three relic seekers: Free Man, Professor Morgan and Nora.
Five lower-value symbols on the reels are rather difficult to describe, but serve the same purpose as playing card ranks in most other games. You will also see a dog, the three human characters mentioned a moment ago, a scatter and a lantern wild.
Relic Seekers is a Rolling Reels game, so after a winning combination the symbols involved will explode to make way for more to drop in from above. In addition, when you get two, four or six consecutive Rolling Reels wins, one of the high-value symbols will turn wild for subsequent Rolling Reel spins.
A Free Spins round is activated by getting three or more scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. During this part of the game, a circular green ‘key’ symbol may appear on the fifth reel, and if it does it will be added to a meter above the reels. Collect three keys and you will receive a reward as well as two extra free spins. Collect six keys and you will receive a reward, two more free spins and a 2x multiplier for all remaining free spins.
Immersive Playing Experience
James Buchanan, who is Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, is justifiably pleased with this release. He said:
‘Offering an immersive playing experience with captivating visuals and features, Relic Seekers sets the bar high for future releases from Pulse 8 Studios, who we are delighted to be working with on an exclusive basis.’
An Atmospheric Winner
Relic Seekers is not the first ‘hunt the treasure’ game to be released this year, and it almost certainly won’t be the last, but it has more than enough originality to be successful in its own right. The collection of keys in the free spins round is particularly enjoyable, and can pay off handsomely. Visit Mr Green Casino today to enter the Dragon’s Vein, and its treasure could be yours!
