Game in Action
As someone who has lived through the years when Tomb Raider was a huge thing, this game is something that I was eager to try. And the game was… alright. It is rather hard to say why I feel this way, but most of Microgaming’s other games feature something completely new, which showcases some creativity, while this just seems like a rather bland slot.
There were so many things that were also expected for this game, which is mostly since the most well known slots that Microgaming have done in the past years have been with 243 ways to win, so something more classical really had a chance to do something completely new. This slot is just really a typical slot that can’t really add anything new that hasn’t been seen before.
The slot is still good. It offers a theme that will give satisfaction to any true gaming fan that has played through the Tomb Raider series, and the bonuses are still packed with a high payout. The soundtrack works really well, the animations are smooth, and the average winnings are often high.
Tomb Raider slot has three bonuses:
- Wild symbols are symbols which can substitute for any symbol in the game, except for Scatter symbols and the bonus symbols, since it would obviously make getting bonuses too easy.
- Scatter bonus can be activated by getting three or more Scatter symbols during one spins. These symbols will award the player 10 free spins, which will have a 3x multiplier for all wins. These free spins can be retriggered if the player gets three Scatter symbols again.
- Tomb bonus is a bonus that can be activated by getting three or more Bonus symbols. During the Tomb bonus, the player will choose from different Tomb Raider themed objects, which will reveal random coin wins.
Tomb Raider is a slot that throws the player back to the days when Tomb Raider still was a huge thing. Sadly, the game doesn’t hold up very well these days compared to 7 years ago when it were first released.
The slot is an average machine that can still offer high winnings if the player is just looking for high volatility slots, but besides that it is rather boring. It is good for beginners, which is a great thing.
