Luxor Relics Slot Review

There’s been much debate over the question of whether or not Cleopatra was a stunner. And it’s a tough one, given that tastes change over time, and different cultures view different things as attractive.

While the Roman historian Cassius Dio described her as “a woman of unsurpassed beauty,’ the Greek biographer Plutarch reckoned she was only passable. But even Plutarch had to admit the queen had an “irresistible charm.”

When it comes to irresistible charms, wait till you see Netgame's version of the Queen of Egypt in their latest offering Luxor Relics slot!

You might wanna grab some eye drops coz those peepers could be feeling a little strained soon enough.

Gameplay

Wa-wa-wee-wa! Now this is how you design a slot! When I landed on the base game, the first thing I saw was this magnificent, 5-symbol high Egyptian queen. OK, OK… I saw her chesticles first. But it’s not my fault – they were looking straight in my eyes, and they were bouncing, your Honor!

Flanking the grid are two alien-like statues that glow with an ethereal light. Wearing not much more than a smile and a catsuit-like outfit, it took me a while to tear my eyes away to check out the rest of the design.

Muttering, “Well done, NetGame – you hooked me with that one,” I was impressed at the level of detail. Some additional statues lurk behind the twin alien babes, and the classic Egyptian wings have been used as a design element to house the jackpots.

The 5x4 reel is where you’ll see some intricately crafted symbols, which are a modern take on the traditional. You’ve got a panther type of predatory cat, along with a three-faced man’s visage, along with ye olde Scarab beetle. But even the latter has been designed to look like a piece of glittering jewelry.

The soundtrack is also a more modern version of what you’d expect to hear. It makes for an astonishing package. Well done to NetGame – this is truly stunning work!

Let’s get into the facts before we explore the gameplay itself.

The max win is the one aspect that isn’t quite so remarkable; it’s €59,450. It comes with an RTP of 96.31%, a multiplier of 1,189x, and a medium/high volatility. The bet limits range from €0.50 to €50.

Features

If you grab 3 or more Scatter symbols (these are balls of fire with “Link” written on em), you’ll be able to unlock the Hold ‘n’ Link bonus. Now you’ll see 3 to 7 cash symbols appearing on the reels, and each of these has a random cash value.

The round ends when either all of the positions on the grid have a cash symbol on em – and that means you’ll win the Grand Jackpot – or no more cash orbs have been added for 3 consecutive spins.

In the latter case, the value of all of the orbs is added up and this will be the amount that you win.

The Cash symbol looks like a glowing ball of molten lava. Also making an appearance during the Hold ‘n’ Link bonus round, these symbols will award you with multipliers ranging from 1x to 5x.

If you grab a symbol (or multiples, if you’re lucky) that looks like the Eye of Sauron with a pyramid in the middle, then you’re in for a treat.

They’re actually called Mystery Pyramids and they create a frame of fire on the position they’ve landed on. After the 10th spin during the base game, these frames then turn the captured symbols into a Wild.

Last up are the golden and silver Orbs. These make an appearance during the Hold ‘n’ Link feature only, and can award multipliers from 5x to 100x, as well as the Mini, Minor, or Major jackpots.

Performance

Whether playing on a desktop or mobile device, I had no issues with the game. The reels do spin rather slowly though, and there’s no turbo setting, but what’s the rush? There’s so much awesomeness to look at, after all.

Max Win

The max win for Luxor Relics slot is €59,450.

Conclusion

So then what’s my feeling on Luxor Relics slot? What you’ve got here is a beautifully designed game, that you can stare at for hours on end. And you might need that given the volatility.

Because it’s set at medium/high, that means it’s a mix between more frequent, lower-paying wins and less frequent, higher-paying wins.

The RTP of 96.31% is decent, but the max win is pretty low. Considering the Egyptian-themed genre of slots is really oversaturated, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you want games with higher payouts, you’ll easily find those.

But if it’s stunning visuals coupled with decent features that you’re after, then Luxor Relics slot is definitely worth considering.
