Microgaming alongside its partner Triple Edge Studios has once again excelled with its Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot. As expected, this is the company’s another Lara Croft-inspired game packed with 5 reels and 243 paylines. Lara Croft is another extremely popular fictional character as well as the main protagonist of the Tomb Raider game and Tomb Raider movies.
She is both highly intelligent as well as highly athletic, adventurer and enthusiasts who fearlessly ventures into hazardous tombs and ancient tombs located all around the world. The character first appeared in the game Tomb Raider released in 1996 after which it became a massive media franchise. When it comes to the Microgaming’s Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot, this is the company’s third release of this kind after Lara Croft Tomb Raider release in 2004 and Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword released in 2008.
The game is playable via all devices from 0.20 up to 20 credits per spin. The main bonus features included are the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs Rolling Reels mode packed with winning multipliers, the game’s Free Spins bonus packed with 80 free spins and its rewarding Jackpot feature offering winnings up to 5,000x players’ stake. Players can win even more generous winnings up to 7,343x their stake during the game’s Free Spins bonus.
As players hop on this journey, they actually enter the magnificent Temple of Riches where high graphics and stunning visuals dance across the game’s reel setup. The third installment of the Microgaming’s Lara Croft slot series is essentially built like the company’s other Lara Croft-inspired games. In the backdrop, players will notice a massive Mayan temple as it emerges from a cold, stone formation. There are some jade and gold details added around the reels.
The Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot is rather visually pleasing. On the reels, players will come across water bottles, backpacks, grapnels and torches. Besides these symbols, there are also two stones as well as Lara Croft herself depicted as jumping, playing with a fun, and driving a motorcycle. Lara Croft is the most valuable symbol bringing winnings worth up to 50x players’ stake reserved for five of a kind winning combos. The game also features scarab beetle wild symbols which act as substituting symbols. In addition to wilds, players can also benefit from bonus scatters that as expected trigger the game’s Free Spins mode.
During the base game, players get to benefit from the game’s Rolling Reels bonus feature. The drill is very simple, symbols which are part of winning combos get removed from the reels and new symbols appearing from above replace them. This bonus feature allows consecutive winnings as well as extends the game time. In this case, consecutive winnings also bring in the game’s winning multiplier which with each consecutive win increases up to 5x.
In order to trigger the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot’s Free Spins bonus, players need to land three or more bonus scattered symbols. Here, players can scoop between 8 and 32 spins as well as benefit from a great 3x winning multiplier which with consecutive winnings increases to 6x, 9x and finally to 15x. Losing spins set the winning multiplier back to its starting point.
It should be noted that the Free Spins bonus can be retriggered, so players can scoop up to 80 free spins and potentially scoop winnings worth over 7,000x their stake thanks to those generous multipliers. The Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot also features a rewarding Jackpot mode which is randomly triggered. The bonus includes three jackpots, Grand, Major and Minor prizes worth 5,000x, 100x and 15x players’ stake respectively.
All in all, the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot looks beautifully designed with truly inspiring artwork. Apart from offering a visual and audio spectacle, this Microgaming release does not fail to impress with its payouts and bonuses as players get to benefit from three awesome jackpot prizes, rolling reels for consecutive winnings and plenty of free spins.
