Tomb Raider Slot – Review
The very first Tomb Raider Slot Machine was launched by Microgaming and released to their casinos at the end of 2004. But to this day, it remains one of my favourite online slot games of all time. Even though a much anticipated sequel was launched some three years later, the original Tomb Raider still gets me hitting the spin button every so often.
Indeed the Tomb Raider Slot Machine holds a special place in my heart when it comes to slot machines, as Tomb Raider was the very first slot which I reviewed on CR, way back in 2004. Before I played the Tomb Raider Slot, I mainly stuck to the table games, but with the release of Tomb Raider and the Thunderstruck Slot, I have to confess I was converted to playing slots and have played them ever since.
The Tomb Raider slot is a five reel, fifteen payline and seventy five coin online slot. Tomb Raider has a wild symbol and also a scatter symbol. The Lara Croft Symbol is a scatter symbol. This means that it does not need to appear in a line on an enabled payline for it to win. It can be scattered anywhere on the five wheels, provided two or more Lara’s appear.
The Tomb Raider Slot has two bonus features, the Free Spins Bonus Game and the Tomb Bonus Game. Three or more Lara Symbols scattered anywhere on the five reels activates the Free Spins bonus game with three or more idols displayed starting the Tomb Bonus Game.
The Tomb Raider Slot boasts state of the art, richly coloured graphics and an adventurous lost treasure theme full of mysterious golden idols, magnificent tigers and all the excitement expected of Lara Croft and Tomb Raider. With the right combinations, a wide variety of entertaining bonuses, scatters, free spins and wild symbol rewards are possible, most contributing to the end payline.
Minimum bets can be as little as 0.05 whilst high rollers can spin up to 37.50 per spin and even more. Although this is not for the faint hearted and is by no means recommended.
All in all nearly after first taking the online slots scene by storm, this first installment of Tomb Raider still easily holds it own and in my own considered view is a classic slot. Of which Microgaming can be rightly and justifiably proud of.
