Everyone – especially those who grew up in the late 90’s and beyond – will know the name Tomb Raider. Not only is this an awesome adventure packed game played by pretty much every teenager with a PlayStation since 1996, it was even adapted for film in 2001 and thus Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and the 2003 sequel The Cradle of Life were splashed across every silver screen in the world. It seems only natural that a video game and movie series of this magnitude should be released as an online slot!
Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword
This slot game is powered by Mircrogaming and as such is seen mostly on Microgaming sites like Go Wild and Wild Jack, however they also lend this game to sites that utilise a multi-level gaming platform like Vera&John.
Boasting 5 reels and 15 pay lines, this is a classic Microgaming slot and looks like it. There are no 3D, cinematic reels but it has charm and substance and still looks glossy and fantastic. The symbols range from Lara Croft herself to icons from the massively popular video game; tigers and golden statues to name a few, as well as the usual 10, J, Q and K symbols that are all suitably shiny, in-keeping with the nature of the game.
The image of Lara with the sun setting behind her is the Wild symbol, and this is sued to substitute for all of the other symbols on the reels, excluding the Scatter and the Bonus symbol. This creates more winning combinations on the pay lines and therefore more chances to win some cash.
- The Scatter – represented by the silver and green artifact symbol, 3 or more of these landing on any of the pay lines will score you free spins. To add to this, the reels within the free spins are rolling reels, which means that they dissolve and are replaced by other symbols to enhance your chances of winning.
- The Bonus – the bonus symbol is the passport, and bagging this on the middle reel will trigger the bonus game dubbed Global Adventure bonus. In this, you have to search for the fragments of a hidden sword and this little game could bag you multiple wins, a bonus cash prize or entry to the Shootout Bonus Feature.
The Shootout Bonus
Entry into the Shootout bonus can only be gained within the Global Adventure Bonus, and in this one you have to shoot the golden disks to see what your prize is.
To enhance the complexity of this cool game, there is a randomly triggered Super Mode bonus that will score you 5 free spins with extra wild symbols and multiple wins.
