One of Microgaming's most anticipated online casino game releases in several
years is now complete. A sequel to the enormously successful Tomb Raider
progressive slot, "Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword" is now available for real
money play at several
Microgaming online casinos. The five-reel, thirty payline
video slot is a welcome addition to Microgaming' s impressive lineup of video
slot machines and exclusively licensed games. Based on the highly successful
video game and popular movie starring Angelina Jolie, Microgaming says the
latest Tomb Raider slot offers even more entertainment and ways to win.
Microgaming's CEO, Roger Raatgever, referred to the
enormous success that the Tomb Raider brand and
athletically shaped Lara Croft have achieved. First, it
was the video game, which gave way to the hugely popular
feature film. And now - just like the Wheel of Fortune -
Tomb Raider has become a recognizable game in casinos.
Microgaming software developers have aimed to make Lara
Croft one of the most recognizable game characters in
the world - and have done just that.
Raatgever also promised "Secret of the Sword" to be
even better than the original Tomb Raider online slot.
Whether in terms of graphics, features or gameplay,
Raatgever says this slot sets a new standard in gaming
development. Apparently, the new Tomb Raider also brings
Lara Croft herself to life in a way the online gambling
industry has never seen. This alone will probably get
every twenty-something guy to give the reels a spin, if
you know what I mean. Maybe the next game in the series
should be "Tomb Raider: The Naked Adventure".
Once you're done admiring the photo-realistic
graphics and 3D action, get ready to take a trip around
the world, for as Microgaming say's in their press
release, "...you will encounter both riches and
dangerous traps in truly dynamic Tomb Raider style".
Apparently, you will also encounter lots of features and
winnings. The randomly triggered Super Mode awards five
free spins, while finding 3, 4 or 5 scattered keys will
award 10 free spins and engage a unique feature called
Rolling Reels, in which consecutive wins can award up to
5x winnings. Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword also
offers a Global Adventure Bonus and a Shootout Bonus
with further multipliers.
