Lara Croft, the intrepid explorer with the skintight shorts, pigtails and massive .45 calibre handguns successfully made the jump from PlayStation to big screen movies, one of the few computer games to ever pull this off without tanking. Now she is appearing at a slot site near you, and boy is she worth checking out - and not just for the shorts.
Tomb Raider is a slot title from Microgaming, obviously licensing the character from Eidos Interactive. Many of the symbols in the game appear to be taken from the first Tomb Raider movie - the big multi-limbed statue, the weird clock key thingy, even Lara's gun. However, Lara herself appears more as she did in the computer games, probably because of difficulties licensing Angelina Jolie's image.
This is an exciting slot to play. It has five reels and pays out on up to 15 lines, depending how many you have activated at any given time. The max bet is 75 coins, and you can wager from five cents up to a dollar on each one, ensuring that this game scales well for both beginners and more experienced highrollers.
The standard jackpot is 7,500 coins straight, but you do stand a chance to radically increase this amount using multipliers in the game.
The Wild symbol
is the tomb Raider logo. If you've played slots before, then you know that you can use the Wild symbol to substitute for a missing character on an activated pay line that would otherwise win.
Lara herself is the scatter symbol, which in this game works as a multiplier. Any winnings from an activated pay line are multiplied by the number of scatter symbols on-screen, wherever they fall.
Additionally, three or more Laras earns you 10 free spins, anything you win during those free spins gets trebled. Moreover, there is the bonus game where you pick from a room full of idols, and you win whatever coin values they are sitting on.
Tomb Raider is an exciting, fun game that is not to be missed. Even though Microgaming have since brought out a sequel to this, it's still worth playing anywhere that you can find it.
