Themes and Audio-Visual Design
With rich pastel colours and beautifully illustrated images, Lost Island will sweep you away to discover the lost city of Atlantis as you spin your way to a portion of the hidden treasure. While the lost island is a treasure trove of golden trinkets, strange sculptures and unique vegetation, securing the treasure won’t be a walk in the park.
Treasure hunt your way through Lost Island to secure a win by matching at least three symbols on an active payline, loading from left to right. As each symbol comes to a halt in the right sequence, you stand the chance to unlock untold riches.
Lost Island Symbols
Collect top value symbols including a medium-value triangular stone with gold inlays, a necklace of precious blue stones, a green drum decorated with sigils, a gold coiled serpent, and a top-paying ceremonial mask. A glowing lotus flower is your Wild symbol, and a golden turtle decorated with jewels is your Scatter. The top right corner of the reels shows your Multiplier counter which keeps track of every Wild you land.
Each Wild landed in the reels moves Multiplier Meter one increment. When all five Wilds appear in the main game, the Multiplier Meter goes up x5 which could result in massive wins. Five Wild symbols will substitute for all other symbols AND they force the Multiplier Meter to go up to x5 which leads to a 5x win applied to the winning combination.
Land 3 turtle Scatters in any position on the reels when playing mobile pokies will trigger the Lost Island Free Spins.
- 3 turtles = 10 Free Spins
- 4 turtles = 20 Free Spins
- 5 turtles = 50 Free Spins
During the bonus games, a Sticky Wild stays in the central position while other Wilds can appear stacked.
Lost Island Soundtrack
Lost Island has a beautifully calming score which is ideal for relaxation after a long day. The dulcet tones and luminous images will make you think of ancient times when mythical lands launched high stakes expeditions as the brave took to the seas on voyages of discovery.
Overall, this is a major hit for NetEnt as, while the game won’t get your heart racing, the calm combination of design features encourage players to play for longer with smaller wagers.

Sticky and Substituting Wilds
During Free Spins, a Wild symbol is placed in the centre of reel 3. This Sticky Wild stays in place for the duration of Free Spins and helps you to activate more paylines.
