Personal tester's opinion about Lost Island slot
Lost Island have potential because of the progressive multiplier for every wild symbol appears and usually shows its mood from the very beginning. If you see that there are a lot of big winnings - continue playing. If the slot shows low activity - switch the machine. I recommend making at least 50 spins before leaving. Note that it does not respond very well to large (more than €25) bets and cycles with spin and max-bet. This slot took a middle position in the ranking of games for completing the bonus wagering requirements. As for the distribution of the pool, then 35% of the prize fund will be reserved for payouts in the bonus free spins feature, and the rest - during the usual spins. My biggest winning during real money play has reached 264x. The statistic shows that every 182nd spin (0,55%) triggers the bonus feature.
Review and recommendations from the testing team
Lost Island is many people’s favourite slot, with good graphics, exciting gameplay and a high-quality sound.
- In the main game, this slot keeps the balance quite badly like many others from this provider, due to low payout for combinations of three and four characters with low multiplayer. And only sometimes compensates for this with good combinations with high multiplayer up to x5.
- The slot gives out a series of several free spins features almost in a row, and then a huge number of spins between the series. During testing, I had a session with up to 400 spins without a bonus feature. But opposite sessions were also observed, where the bonus feature was activated from the very first spins. We should also say that it is possible to get a combination of five scatters on this slot, unlike on some others. On average, one of the 20-30 triggering of the free spins feature takes place with five scatter symbols, which increases the number of free spins to 30, and accordingly, the chances of winning.
- The bonus game potential for winning is huge. Often, the Lost Island slot gives out many wild symbols closing most of the reels and giving out winnings in the amount of 200x - 400x of total bets per spin. And this may happen more than once.
- In practice, of course, such bonuses are not always, and most of them bring much more modest winnings in the values of 20x - 80x total bets.
- The slot keeps the balance well and is recommended for games with bonus money and fulfilling wagering requirements (only if is hot). With a good bet balance (150x - 200x total bets) to pass through the situation if the first bonuses are unsuccessful, the slot gives a big win after a series of unsuccessful bonuses. In short, the recommended strategy for the game is either to leave the slot after the first good bonus or to play with a bet balance of 250 - 300 bets until a win.

Description of the slot machine
As always, the developers of NetEnt were able to modify game-play in such a way that is not accustomed to gamblers. This time, each of the wild symbols at the same time performing its primary function, increases the total winning multiplier of 1 (each wild +1). The counter multiplier is in the upper right corner of the playing field. The first wild does not increase the winning, filling the multiplier at 1 x, and the second doubles, third triples, fourth increases win for four times, and the fifth multiplies total winning for five. It is important to note that the multipliers are added regardless of whether wild symbols are in the current combination or not. A higher number of wild symbols in itself promotes the big winning, increasing the total multiplier in the spin.
- The number of reels - 5.
- The number of active lines - 20.
- The minimum bet is 0.2.
- The maximum rate is 100.
- RTP - 96.5%.
- The maximum winning is 500 000 coins (during the bonus feature).
- Symbol of Wild – yes (a magic flower, in free spins each wild symbol gives a multiplier x1)
- The highest-paid symbol — x500 (Red Amulet)
- Scatter – yes (Gold Turtle)
- Bonus spins – yes (3 and more Scatters give series of free spin with the "freezing" wild symbol)
Turtle with a precious stone is a scatter symbol. Catching three (or more) turtles, during the usual spins you will launch ten free spins with a fixed wild symbol in the center of the playing field, and thus an additional multiplier. Three scatter symbols of the slot island, you get ten free games. Four - twenty Free games. Five - thirty Free games.
- During the bonus feature, a flower (wild symbol) is fixed in the central position of the drum and rotations occur around it. Also, there is the probability of vertical wild symbols (two symbols together, or three together). In other words, if only one wild symbol is in any position on the first reel, the line is paid. If you are lucky enough to catch wild symbol vertically (two or three) on the first, second and fourth reel, then, even at the average stake, the amount will be awe-inspiring due to the maximum (5X) multiplier on the winning. Naturally, the bonus free game - is the culmination of the game. The ability to win an astronomical amount increases significantly.
