Since we were first introduced to Lara Croft back in 1996 in the Tomb Raider video game, our heroine has continued to entertain us in computer game form, as well as in Hollywood movies, and online slot games. And, when Microgaming created its Tomb Raider online slot in 2004, a whole new legion of Lara Croft fans was born.
As Microgaming is one of the most famous online slot manufacturers in the world, having brought us top titles such as Game of Thrones, Mermaids Millions, and Immortal Romance, it seems the perfect brand to bring the thrilling world of Lara and her archaeological adventures to online casino and bingo players.
For as little as 30p per spin, the most daring players among you can join Lara as she travels deep underground in search of buried treasures. And, if you’re lucky, you’ll quickly locate the Free Spins Bonus where all wins gained are tripled in size.
You could also unlock the Tomb Bonus where the precious idols that lie hidden inside will reward you with instant cash prizes.
But, if you’re expecting to see film footage and stills of Angelina Jolie performing death-defying stunts as she navigates the ancient tombs, think again, because in Microgaming’s first Tomb Raider online slot, the graphics are designed to look like the original computer game which gives it a wonderfully retro appearance.
Land five wild symbols on the reels while you’re playing the game, and you’ll be handsomely rewarded with the slot’s top jackpot of seven thousand, five hundred times your total bet!
Tomb Raider uses the walls of an underground burial vault as its background, and you can see a few vines creeping across the candlelit stones.
As there are fifteen paylines used in Tomb Raider, you can see the numbers 1 to 15 running down each side of the reel set to demonstrate how you can form winning combinations.
In addition, you can see how the paylines work more closely by consulting the paytable via the “View Payout” button at the bottom-left, which also shows you how much each symbol pays out and how the bonus games work.
As well as the five low-value playing card symbols (N.B., A, K, Q, J, and 10), you can use the circular metal tool, the game logo, the full-size image of Lara Croft, the gold statue, and the lion to create winning combinations from left-to-right across the reels on adjacent reels, beginning with Reel 1.
As the paylines aren’t fixed, you can choose how many you wish to enable by clicking the “Select Lines” button underneath the reels. N.B., the minimum number that you can play with is 1 and the maximum is 15.
Right next to the “Select Lines” button is “Select Coins”, which gives you the ability to pick how many coins you wish to bet per payline. You can set it to 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
There’s also a “Bet Max” button that lets you play the maximum possible bet with a single click, and to the far right, you can begin playing the slot by using the “Spin” button.
In the Tomb Raider online slot, the game logo represents the wild symbol. The wild is able to substitute for all symbols except the scatter symbol and bonus symbol. Plus, it also awards the game’s top payout of seven thousand, five hundred times your total bet when it forms a five-of-a-kind, all-wild winning combination.
The scatter symbol in the Tomb Raider online slot is the image of Lara holding twin pistols. It awards scatter wins when it appears at least twice on the same spin, and it can also trigger the Free Spins Bonus.
The game also comes with a bonus symbol which is represented by the gold idol. Three or more give you instant cash rewards and they also activate the Tomb Bonus.
Tomb Raider boasts two bonus features.
Firstly, there’s the Free Spins Bonus which is triggered by three, four or five scatter symbols landing anywhere in view. No matter how many scatters unlock the bonus, you gain ten free games. But, you can retrigger the feature with another three, four or five scatters, and you also benefit from tripled prizes throughout.
The Tomb Bonus is awarded when three, four or five bonus symbols land on an active payline on the reel set, which must include a bonus symbol on Reel 1.
A new screen is loaded, and you’re asked to pick from a selection of twelve golden idols to reveal random bonus win amounts. You receive three picks if you entered the bonus with three scatters, four picks for four triggering scatters, and five picks for five triggering scatters. When the feature ends, all of the cash prizes that you won are added up and credited to your balance.
