Video slot machines have been created around popular console games and characters since they were invented. That's quite logical, as characters in them are instantly recognized and players who have been fans of it might get lurked into trying out the particular game. This is the case with Tomb Raider, which is a game based on the massively popular console game with the same title. It was developed by MicroGaming back in 2008 and there's already a new, second version of it as well.
Following the best practises of developing an online slot, this game includes a free spins round as well as a bonus game themed after the console game. You can also take advantage of the wild symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols in the game, apart from the scatter.
Even though the amount of pay-lines featured in this slot is not all that staggering, capped at 15 lines, it does play equally well compared to all the modern games developed nowadays, even the new 243 line ones.
How To Play Tomb Raider
Reason because of whom a number of people avoid video slots and choose the classic version of these games is complexity. They tend to believe that these kinds of games are complicated and hard to play. Nothing alike and you'll be able to see that below. The Tomb Raider slot features only a couple of buttons that you should get used to :
- '' + '' and '' - '' will help you to pick the desired coin size. Choose between $0.75 and $7.50
- ''Select Lines'' – helps you to pick the amount of pay-lines to play. Anywhere between 1 to 15 lines can be played in this game.
- ''Select Coins'' – you can also select the amount of coins to wager per spin. This comes handy if you want to wager more than $7.50 per spin, which is the maximum coin denomination featured.
- ''Bet Max'' – bet the maximum amount of coins with your coin denomination selected.
- "Spin'' - quite obviously, this button spins the symbols on reels.
You should also check the pay-table, which can be done by pressing the ''View Payou'' tab on the left and right side of the logo for this slot. A new window will open with explicit details of the value for all symbols featured in the game as well as information about how a payout can be claimed.
Strategy & Tips
There's alot of advice for playing and winning at slots out there on the internet. Most of it is pure crap, though. While we don't have a sound slots strategy allowing to win money consistently, there is some common things you should keep in mind when playing Tomb Raider.
Firstly, use basic money management. The most valuable feature in this particular game is the free spins one. Thus calculate the amount of spins you can make with your deposit and think how likely is it that you will make it to the point, when free spins are actually awarded. It's all speculation of course, but if you bet small, big wins still are possible – all wins are tripled during the free spins!
Mobile Game Version
As of recently, one of Microgaming's most popular titles is available in stunning detail on Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Windows Phone devices. The 5 reel 15 payline video slot is equipped with all kinds of special features and it comes with a maximum jackpot payout of 7,500.
Lara Croft is obviously the most popular character in the game, and she appears as both a regular symbol and as free spins icon, while three, four or five idols on an active payline trigger Tomb Bonus. Tomb Raider logo substitutes all other symbols and it carries the maximum payout in the game. With all the perks and benefits available in the mobile version regardless of your handheld device, you clearly cannot go wrong with this video slot.
