The ultimate femme fatale comes to life on the slots. Lara Croft on Tomb Raider is one of the first licensed slots in history and definitely deserves its cult status. She leaves Agent Jane Blonde in the dust and gives you the chance to enjoy all the polygon graphics from the original PlayStation games, the fantastically infuriating tigers, but, more importantly, you get to search for hidden treasure.

Tomb Raider looks pretty much like you’d expect one of the original slots to look like. And that’s crammed to the hilt! The reel takes up the whole screen, with all symbols bright and shiny. The Tomb Raider title sits atop the reelcase while the main buttons are at the bottom. Though they’re not really buttons, more blocks. A series of rectangles showing you your credits, betting options and an orange spin button are the only buttons you need to press. If you need more information, you can check out the info menu. The theme and layout were such a success that Microgaming’s Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword sequel used it, developed it and improved it further. Across five reels and 15 paylines you’ll see familiar images, such as Lara Croft and that dastardly tiger (if you’ve played the game, you’ll know what we mean). If you want more Lara action without the tigers, you can always check out the sequel.
As one of the first big online slots, the symbols aren’t as intricate as those we find as standard today. The card symbols appear in a glossy, chunky sheen and act as the low value symbols. One thing that stands out is that they look like they’ve been designed in the same style as the Tomb Raider title style, so that’s a nice touch. The high value symbols are made up of Lara Croft symbols, the Tiger, and a Puzzle. The Tomb Raider symbol is Wild, substituting for other symbols to help you create winning combinations. The Lara Croft symbol with her arms crossed and guns in hand is the Scatter, while the Idol triggers a bonus round.
For one of Microgaming’s early slots, the bonuses really pack a punch. Perhaps this is why players keep coming back to it (and we’re sure you will, too).
