World Famous Tomb Raider Licensed By Microgaming
New Tomb Raider Video Slot a first for the
online gambling industry
Leading turnkey provider Microgaming
has licensed the Tomb Raider™ brand from Eidos, one of the
world’s leading developers and publishers of entertainment
software. The deal will see Microgaming launch a new online video
slot game themed around the world famous video game series Tomb Raider
and its star Lara Croft™.
Tomb Raider is a global phenomenon. The video game series has sold more than
30 million copies worldwide and it is the number one selling franchise on PlayStation
in Europe and the US. It has also spawned two Hollywood blockbuster movies with
Lara Croft making it onto the silver screen in the shape of Angelina Jolie.
The game has been developed as a 5 reel, 15 payline, multiple coin video slot
with a Wild and Scatter Symbol, Bonus Feature and Free Spins. Tomb Raider is
the first Microgaming video slot where the player can win entry into the Bonus
Feature from the Free Spins.
Players can bet up to 5 coins on each of the 15 paylines, taking the maximum
wager per spin to 75 coins in a range of denominations from a cent right through
to a dollar.
The razor sharp, richly coloured graphics carry an exotic treasure theme full
of mysterious golden idols, magnificent tigers, the familiar Tomb Raider logo
and of course the inimitable Lara Croft herself. With the right combinations,
a wide variety of entertaining bonuses, scatters, free spins and wild symbol
rewards are possible, most contributing to the end payline.
With a maximum bet, winnings of up to $37,500 are achievable, and with the Free
Spin x3 multiplier feature that reward can soar to $112,500.
In the game, the Tomb Raider logo is wild and substitutes for all symbols except
scatters and bonus idols and, 3, 4 or 5 bonus idols on the active payline will
trigger an entertaining Tomb Bonus where rewards are added to payline wins. This
can be triggered during Free Spins too, with choices of 3, 4 or 5 reward idols
from a selection of 12 displayed in a hidden rocky tomb.
Microgaming representative Mark Fredericks said, “The licensing of such
a globally recognized brand as Tomb Raider is a coup for us. Whilst working on
this new online video slot, we have seen some great graphics come out of our
