Tomb Raider II Slot
Not many action heroes can say they've featured in a video game with sequels, a movie with sequels, and an online slots game with sequels, but 'action archeologist' Lara Croft certainly can. She first came to prominence in the 1996 video game Tomb Raider as a Brit archeologist with sizeable assets who spends her time raiding tombs in search of sizeable assets. She eventually starred in several video game sequels and two movies released in 2001 and 2003. Both films starred Angelia Jolie and were universally panned. Lara made it as a Microgaming-powered online slot in 2004, and returns in this 5 reel, 30 max pay line slot 'Secret of the Sword' four years later.
The symbols used in this sequel are playing card values ten to ace plus lots of shots of the lovely Lara doing a bit of archeological-related stuff. To take Lara for a spin, pick your coin size from 0.01 to 0.20, the number of lines you want in play from one to thirty, and the number of coins you want to risk with each spin from one to ten. Your final stake is these three figures having undergone a bit of multiplication. When you're ready to get digging, hit the 'Spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 5x your stake-per-line for three tens or jacks, up to a treasured 7,500x for five of a Lara selfie.
That Lara selfie is also the wild symbol in this game. She subs for all other symbols aside from the free spins and 'Global Adventure' symbols.
Landing three, four or five free spins symbols anywhere on the reels awards you a cash prize and free spins with the 'rolling reels' feature. During free spins all winning symbols on any spin vamoosh and new ones drop down to replace them. Each successive rolling reel win is subject to a multiplier that increases in value with each win up to a maximum of 5x.
During play 'Super Mode' is triggered randomly, and awards you five free spins. When you're enjoying your freebies, random sticky wilds can appear.
While you are playing, if a passport symbol lands in the central position on any reel then that reel becomes activated. Activate all five reels and you are through to the 'Global Adventure Bonus' game. Here you search various locations world-wide for pieces of a mysterious sword. Find all five and untold riches will be yours. Watch out for booby traps though – stumble into two of them and your adventure ends.
Tomb Raider II was a great game when it was released and a worthy successor to Microgaming's original title. This game has aged well and the multiple additional features make it a slot still worthy of your attention. Why not see if Lara can help you uncover some invaluable treasures of your own?
