One of Microgaming Software’s most popular online casino slots to date is the Tomb Raider video slot. If that name sounds familiar, screen shots of the game and corresponding reel symbols will look even more familiar, for Microgaming’s “Tomb Raider” is exclusively licensed to be themed on the popular Tomb Raider video games, which in turn, was themed after the popular box office hit, feature film starring Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft.
As the video game goes, Tomb Raider follows the adventures of Lara Croft as she risks her life and precious, beautiful limbs trying to search for the elusive “idol”. To get an idea of the entertainment and action that accompanies game play, as well as the super hotness of Lara herself, there is an engaging opening movie trailer that can be viewed after downloading “Tomb Raider” at any Microgaming online casino.
The structure of “Tomb Raider” online video slot is five reels and fifteen paylines – your average sized video bonus slot. The stakes range is wide, allowing bets for as little as a penny and awarding up to 75,000 coins on a nine-coin wager. The most unique thing about this game is the bonus round, which is unique in the sense that it was the first online casino slot to award players bonus entry with a free spins feature.
A wild symbol (Tomb Raider logo), Scatter Symbol (Lara Croft herself) and the elusive “Idol” symbol are your best friends on this game, for five wilds will hit the big jackpot payout, three or more Lara Croft’s activate the free spins feature with 3x winnings and three or more “Idol’s” get you into the bonus round, aka, the tomb.
In addition to the 10 free spins with triple payouts on three or more scatter symbols, initial winnings are increased with two or more Lara Croft symbol combos. Therefore, 2 Lara Croft’s pays double winnings, 3 Lara Croft’s pay 4x winnings, and five Lara Croft’s pays a massive 400x on the initial win. As for the Tomb Bonus Round, anywhere from three to five “idols” are to be chosen, paying out from $36 to $2,500 each.
As you can see, the payouts on “Tomb Raider” video slots are just as enticing as the theme of the game. Be sure to read over the full payout table and familiarize yourself with the symbols, paylines and winning combos before gambling with real stakes.
