Tomb Raider Slot

tomb raider slotTomb Raider is one of the most successful media franchises of all time- it all started off with the action adventure video game series, and since then there has been books, films, t-shirts and 2 very successful online slot games under the Microgaming umbrella: the original Tomb Raider Online Slot and the sequel- Tomb Raider 2: The Secret of the Sword. When you look at the design of these games now and compare them to later games like Immortal Romance, the Playboy Slot and even Thunderstruck II, it´s clear that the world of design has moved on. But that doesn´t seemed to have dented the appeal of these slots which continue to rank among Microgaming´s most popular games. And I guess that that is down to the enduring appeal of Lara Croft - oh, and the game play isn´t bad either. You can play Tomb Raider in the Betway Slots section.

The original Tomb Raider Slot- let´s call it Number One, is a 5 reels, 15 pay lines with a maximum bet of 75 coins. It´s reassuringly Old School with the Tomb Raider Logo fronting up as the wild symbol. Lara Croft is the scatter symbol and sets off the free spins. The you have an Idol bonus symbol which sets off another bonus round. That´s it! Reassuringly simple and easy to play.

There are 2 bonus features, the Free Spins Bonus and the Tomb Bonus Game. You´ll need 3 or more Lara Croft Scatters anywhere across the 5 reels to get in to the Free Spins bonus and 3 or more idols to kick off the Tomb Bonus Game.

There´s nothing fancy about it- it´s a classic slot along the same line as Mermaids Millions. Sometimes, the simplest games are the best!

Let´s look at the sequel- the Tomb Raider Slot 2 (Secret of the Sword). This has basically been turbo charged with more features, so it will depend on whether you prefer a simple game, or a more complex one as to which one you prefer. This also has 5 reels but they increased the pay lines to 30. You can bet from 30p to £6 a go and it comes with a 7,500 coin jackpot (you´ll need to land 5 Lara Croft (wild) symbols on an activated pay line). In the sequel, you have a Super Mode feature (triggered at random) in which you get 5 free spins. You´ll get extra wild symbols in Super Mode.

There´s also a Free Spins with Rolling Reels feature – hit 3, 4 or 5 Excalibur Key symbols to get this, and you´ll get 10 free spins – when you get a winning combination, the winning symbols explode and disappear (like Net Ent´s Gonzo´s Quest, if you have ever played that). The reels then roll down with new symbols giving you another chance to win. Plus, the multiplier value goes up after 2 or more consecutive winning spins – up to a maximum of 5x. BUT, you can´t retrigger free spins from within the bonus.

There´s also a Global Adventure Bonus– set this one off with a Passport symbol on the centre of a reel. You need to do this on all 5 reels. You can win up to 450x your average betd during the Passport hunt).

You then need to decide where to head to look for the Hidden Sword Fragments – choose either London, Bolivia, Nepal, or and Tokyo. Lara Croft looks for the fragments. If you find all the sword fragments before hitting any booby traps, you win a random cash prize.

And that´s not it on the bonus rounds! If you find the Hidden Treasure, you can choose to head into a Shootout Bonus feature.

15 discs hide mystery values- guess the disc with the best prize.

Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword is pretty complicated (maybe too complicated for it´s own good). The graphics on both games are starting to look a little dated, if we are to be honest, but the game play is good on both of them. Just choose whether you want the simpler game or its more complex sequel. We prefer the original game personally.
