We didn’t manage to lose our way in the Lost mobile slot game, but we were impressed by one feature that made this BetSoft machine worth a spin.
First of all, we found that when we played Lost as an Android slot on our phone it was sloooooooooow… Over WiFi it wasn’t so bad, so this is far more suited as a slot for iPads and tablets. Mobile phones too, we suppose, if you connect over a strong WiFi connection or 4G.
We were not particularly impressed with the graphics; especially the dead eyes of Dr Dakota Bones and his assistant Farooq. And these are the living people in the game, not the mummy who’s treasure you are hunting down. Farooq is also, we must say, extremely light skinned for someone who is supposedly… Egyptian? Middle eastern?
Cultural misdemeanour’s aside, all the graphic have a fuzzy look about them which makes the theme hard to really enjoy. Add the fact that none of the slots bonus features seem to get you much more than 10 to 20 times your bet and you’ll soon feel like you are spinning for the sake of spinning.
The one feature of note that is worth mentioning is the reel re-spin bonus feature with the increasing multiplier (more on that in the features panel below). You’d think this bonus round would be mostly for show, but we did hit the 5x multiplier several times, in a row, with good results. It’s not a whole free spin as it’s only the center reel that spins, but we managed to get 60x our bet on this little feature, and as such, came out on top when we finally walked away from this mobile slot.
However, this low variance slot is a one trick pony and the click me features are barely even worth mentioning for the lack of hits. Even the center reel re-spin mostly just keeps your bank balance steady.
At best, this mobile Lost slot game will keep you ticking along, not winning much but not losing much, waiting to hit the right combination for that 5x multiplier. If you get 30% up from your starting budget consider yourself a winner and walk away, there’s not much more hiding in these dessert dunes.
If you like this you might like other Egypt themed slots offering up golden treasures.

Expanded Centre Reel: If the staff Ah-Amded the mummy shows up on reel three this will expand to cover the whole reel and act as a wild with a 2x multiplier. Handy as this is the reel that re-spins.
Monkey Click Me: Also otherwise known as a complete waste of a feature. If the monkey symbols shows up on reel four you'll get to pick from 6 squares. This feature occurs often, but 90% of the time we barely walked away with 2x to 4x our bet.
Centre Reel Free Re-spin: On each winning combination the centre reel re-spins for free and you get an increasing multiplier of 1x, 2x, 3x and 5x. The 5x is not as hard to hit as you'd think and we've been lucky enough with this feature for it to save Lost as a mobile slot. In fact, we've hit the 5x repeatedly as the reel will keep re-spinning for as long as you get a win.
It's not quite a free spin feature, but it's good enough that the lack of free spins are not felt as badly you'd think.
The Mummy’s Tomb Bonus Round: You'll need four eyes of Ra symbols on reels 1, 2, 4 & 5 to trigger this feature. Guess how often that happens? Not often. This lost tomb sure has the right name.
Here you'll enter the mummy's tomb as you click through doorways to get to the treasure. Each correct guess get's you instant cash prizes, but if you find a mummy, it's Game Over.
Considering how hard it is to get this bonus feature you'd think you'd walk away with more than 25x your bet.
The center reel re-spin intrigued us enough to wonder and hope that Betsoft Gaming will incorporate this feature in more of their mobile slot games.
However, even though we walked away with more than we came in and even though we enjoyed that one feature, it simply wasn't enough to bring the entertainment factor for what is a fairly slow and average game.
That said, this Lost slot machine on mobile may find it's fans amongst players happy to spin the night away without much expectations.
