The leading developer of online slots Microgaming has announced the launch of the long-awaited Lara Croft game.
Titled Lara Croft Temples and Tombs, the fresh release arrives a couple of months after Microgaming and Square Enix extended their cooperation with a brand-new agreement.
Following the launch of the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider slot in 2004, which was the industry’s first ever licensed branded game, the renowned developer is now launching the third Lara Croft-branded slot. The latest addition to the gaming giant’s portfolio has been exclusively developed by Triple Edge Studios.
Players can look forward to a thrilling adventure, where they’ll need to show their skills if they want to unearth hidden ancient riches.
Lara Croft Temples and Tombs is a 5-reel, 3-row slot which has no traditional paylines and instead offers players 243 different ways to win. The cult heroine is finally coming back to the reels, along with a wide selection of exciting and potentially lucrative features.
Punters are sure to benefit from the Rolling Reels feature, which sees the symbols forming a winning combination explode, with new ones falling into their place. Consecutive wins increase the multiplier trail, which can go all the way up to 5x in the main game.
The Golden Scarab symbol serves as Wild, substituting for other icons and helping players complete an additional winning combination.
All those who collect these symbols may end up winning a neat jackpot. The ancient tomb of Free Spins hides immense riches, as all win in this feature begin with a 3x multiplier trail, which can be increased to 15x. Landing three Journal Scatters will trigger the Free Spins round, awarding 8 spins along the way. The Wild can appear during the bonus round and can increase the number of spins to 32.
In addition to exciting features, the new Microgaming’s slot boasts stunning visuals, while the heroine herself will appear on the reels, along with ancient gods Set and Sobek.
Speaking about the new game, Jean-Luc Ferriere Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming said the release of Lara Croft Temples and Tombs was a tremendously exciting moment for the company, building on the longstanding branded relationship with Square Enix. Ferriere added the game reflected Triple Edge Studios’ passion and enthusiasm, making it a powerfully attractive product for new and established players.
