Microgaming invites players to experience the medium volatility slot Lara Croft Temples and Tombs.
Triple Edge Studios and Microgaming have joined forces to bring the Tomb Raider game to the world of video slots. Lara Croft Temples and Tombs is the 5-reels and 243 ways to win slot where the Tomb of the Golden Scarab Jackpot, guarded by Set and Sobek, holds 5,000x total bet!
The very beautiful and resourceful Lara Croft has sought to unlock the hidden temple treasures, home to the secrets of Golden Scarab Jackpot. She's back and she's got a taste for gold in this latest adventure! The highest-paying symbols are four poses of the action-packed Lara Croft. Two medium-paying symbols include statues of the gods Sobek and Set followed by a flaming torch, grappling hook, travel pack and water canister. The music teleports the player into the world of Lara Croft as she finds herself in Ancient Egypt.
A scarab carving acts as a wild symbol that replaces the other symbols. It surfaces on the second, third and fourth reels.
The Rolling Reels feature is trademarked by Microgaming and is available in both the main game and free spins. The feature replaces winning symbols with new random symbols which cascade into place. This creates an opportunity to create new wins, multiple times, wager-free.
The Multiplier Trail
During the Rolling Reels a different set of win multipliers are applied, called the Multiplier Trail, depending on whether you're in the free spins or main game. During the Rolling Reels in the main game, the first, second and third+ consecutive roll take the multiplier from 1x to 2x, 3x or 5x.
The branded slot offers a chance to collect up to 5,000x total bet.
Free Spins with Multiplier Trail
A book acts as a scatter symbol that will trigger 8 free spins when appearing in sets of three. During the Rolling Reels in the free spins, the first, second and third+ consecutive roll take the multiplier from 3x to 6x, 9x or 15x. This feature can be re-triggered while it's active.
Golden Scarab Jackpot
While the Rolling Reels Feature is active, wild symbols are collected on each spin. The greater the number of wilds collected, the greater the chance of unlocking one of the three jackpots: Grand, Major or Minor. The jackpots give players the chance to win up to 5,000x, 100x or 15x their total bet!
- branded slot based on a popular video game
- 3-tiered jackpot with up to 5,000x total bet
- creative artwork and effective soundtrack
So what did I think?
This slot will probably attract a certain type of fan. That is - fans of the Tomb Raider video games & movies, medium volatility, ancient Egyptian themed video slots. The game is equipped with solid graphics and sound effects and overall I enjoyed the 243 ways to win construct. While the maximum payout is 5,000x total wager, you'll have to trigger the jackpot to do this which is very difficult so the payouts will likely be far less. For higher volatility, ancient Egyptian themes I prefer the classic Book of Ra from Novomatic or Book of Dead from Play'N Go.
The features include wilds, Microgaming's trademark Rolling Reels, Multiplier Trail, Free Spins and Golden Scarab Jackpot.
