Microgaming teams up with Triple Edge Studios once more to create another slot title based on intrepid archaeologist Lara Croft. Titled Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs, the slot takes you on a highly exciting adventure where you will reveal hidden riches and win prizes. In addition to regular payouts, the game offers three fixed jackpots with the biggest one standing at 5,000x your bet.
If you are a fan of the previous two Microgaming titles featuring Lara Croft, you will love this one even more. It uses 5 reels and 243 ways to win with a reel set located within the Temple of Riches. The wagering starts at $0.20 while a maximum bet per spin is set at $20. Not a wide betting range, but still suitable for all kinds of players. Just pick a total bet that suits your budget and push the Spin button to set the reels in motion.
In the bottom left corner, you will find different buttons you can use to see payouts, adjust sounds and so on. On the left side of the Spin button, you will find the Max Bet button that increases the wager to the max value. The Autoplay button is on the right side of the Spin button and it allows you to activate up to 100 automatic spins.
The game boasts realistic graphics with symbols designed as if they were made of stone. They are all theme-related with four icons featuring our heroine that pay the biggest prizes. Besides, the reels are home to the alligator god Sobek, his golden head as well as hooks, bags, torches and water bottles. As you play the game, you will benefit from the Rolling Reels feature triggered whenever you create a win. Thanks to it, successful symbols are destroyed and replaced with new ones. Each cascade increases multiplier from 2x up to 5x in the base game.
The golden coin with a scarab beetle on it represents Wild that will help you complete winning combos. Coin Wilds are collected during cascades and can contribute to winning one of the three fixed jackpots. The more Wilds collected the higher chances of triggering a Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot. They are awarded at random though.
Look out for Lara Croft’s Journal as it stands for Scatter which can award between 8 and 32 free spins. Once in, you will win tripled payouts initially. If you manage to land consecutive wins, a multiplier of 6x, 9x and 15x applies thanks to the Rolling Reels. The feature can be retriggered with up to 80 free spins available per round.
This is a high volatility offering from Microgaming with a solid RTP of 96.05%. However, it offers nothing revolutionary as it uses the features already seen in the NetEnt Gonzo’s Quest slot. If you are into archaeology and like Lara Croft movies, you can give it a try, but watch out as your bankroll may get drained with a series of unsuccessful spins taking place until a big win lands.
