If you land 5 of the same symbol type, it gives between 2X to 4X the bet. The absolute highest paying symbol is the game's Wild symbol which shows Max Dangerous, where 5 of this type of symbol gives 10X the bet. Let's find out what the features do.
What features are in the slot Max Dangerous and the Lost Relics?
The features are Wild Symbol, Cascade, Meters, Whip, Plane, Skull, Hat and Free Spins.
This symbol helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols. Where 3, 4 or 5 of this symbol give 0.5X, 2X and 10X respectively the bet.
When you create a winning combination, the Cascade feature will be activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and then new symbols will fall down to cover these empty positions.
To the right of the reels, you can see 5 different Meters showing Whip, Plane, Skull, Hat and Chalice. When you then create a winning combination, the corresponding Meter will be filled with the respective symbols. Wild symbols don’t fill these Meters and once you have managed to fill up a Meter, you will get to take part in the corresponding feature. The Whip, Plane and Chalice have 11 spaces, while the skull and the hat have 10 spaces. It is also possible to fill these meters several times and then you can see on the red indicator how many times you have filled it.
When you activate this, a symbol will be chosen, and a multiplier will be assigned to all of these on the reels. These multipliers will then be added together and used to multiply your bet.
This plane will fly on a random line, where it will turn all of these symbols into the same symbol type, except the Wild symbols.
This one will randomly place 3 sticky Wilds on the reels. They have 3 lives each and every time it is included in a winning combination, 1 life disappears.
You will get 3 wild symbols placed on reel 2, where another 3 wild symbols are placed above the reel 2. Once you create a winning combination, these will fall on the reels during the Cascade feature.
Once you succeed in filling the Chalice meter, the Free Spins feature is activated, and you are then welcomed with 12 free spins. This feature comes with a bunch of great features, where the Whip, Plane and Chalice only have 9 spaces now instead of the previous 11. When you spin the reels, your filled spaces will stay until the next spin and they will not reset.
If you succeed in filling the Chalice meter, you will receive a multiplier of 2X which is applied to the final win. Each time you manage to fill this Chalice meter, this multiplier will increase by 1, which can give festive final wins.
This slot from Red Rake Gaming offers a wonderful mix of different features, where through the Cascade feature you can collect a lot of different symbol types. By collecting the different symbol types, you will finally fill up their respective Meters, which activates various exciting features. It's a great sight when the Cascade feature activates and it starts to rain down new symbols, where you see the various meters start to fill up. Where some help to create more winning combinations by sprinkling Wild symbols on the reels while others create rows with the same symbol type. There will simply be different ways that generate more winning combinations, but by activating the Free Spins feature, the really big wins can be claimed.
The wonderful thing that happens within this feature is that all the meters that are filled up will remain between the different spins that are made and won’t reset. In addition, you can get a multiplier that is applied to the total win and this can increase indefinitely. They choose a relatively low RTP of 95.3% which could have been slightly higher. On the other hand, they have a high Hit frequency of 48.3% which helps to create profits often, even if they aren’t always very large, it helps to be able to quickly replenish the various Meters available. The design feels a bit simpler and a bit like going back in time, but it is a charming presence that has been created where the various features that are often activated create entertaining spins.
Max Dangerous and the Lost Relics is a slot that allows us to follow on an adventure, where we can unlock many different exciting features by collecting symbols.
