Lara Croft Temples and Tombs by Microgaming picks up from where Tomb Raider II: Secret of the Sword finished off, and the latest instalment in the series comes with more polished graphics and a ton more special features thanks to a newly-formed partnership between Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios.
The Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot offers you a rollercoaster ride through its Rolling Reels and Free Spins Bonus. And, there are even three generous jackpots to unearth!
While Tomb Raider II used five reels and thirty paylines, the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot game gives you 243 different ways to win on each spin. The betting range starts at just 20p, and the game's expected long-term payback is 96.05%.
Our Verdict: There's a feast of features to explore in the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot game, as well as massive prizes to take home. Each free spin that you take in the bonus game could net you 7,343x your stake while the trio of fixed jackpots that appear in Lara Croft Temples and Tombs can help you claim a tasty 5,000x your stake.
Regardless of whether you've played the previous two Tomb Raider slots, the latest reincarnation is very much worth a look.
Design: We first saw Lara Croft appear in an online slot in 2004 when Microgaming released Tomb Raider. Before that, Lara was the star of a popular video game that was made in 1996. Since then, a brand-new decade has given rise to HD graphics and superior sound effects that have allowed Triple Edge Studios to give people who play Lara Croft Temples and Tombs a cinematic playing experience.
The Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot takes you deep inside an Ancient Egyptian tomb known as the Temple of Riches, where Lara is exploring and excavating, and she's already found many buried treasures as you can see from the piles of jewellery, artefacts, and coins that lie on the tomb's floor.
The Book of Secrets, as well as Lara's equipment (such as the grappling hook, bag, water bottle, and torch) can be used to form wins across the 243 paylines, as can the three pictures of Lara and the statue of an Egyptian god.
Wild Symbol: It's potentially easier to win prizes with Lara Croft Temples and Tombs thanks to the wild symbol, which is represented by the gold scarab. The wild can substitute for any symbol except the scatter to help create a win.
Bonus Features: Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot has a Free Spins Bonus which is awarded when at least three scatter symbols are present on the reels. Depending on the number of triggering scatters, you gain between 8 and 32 free games.
Rolling Reels are used in both the base game and the bonus game, and they allow consecutive winning combinations to be created while also increasing the value of the win multiplier at the top of the game screen.
There is also three jackpots worth between 15 times and 5,000 times your stake which may be awarded at random through the Jackpot Feature.
