Tomb Raider is one of the first branded online slots game to have ever been released in the online gambling world. It is also one of the first games to have spawned an entire series, complete with spin offs and sequels.
The first game was simply titled “Tomb Raider”; it was a 5-reel, 15-payline online slots game with a general theme centered around the lead character of the video game series, Lara Croft. Most of the symbols featured her in different action positions, but there were also a few other symbols: an ancient relic, a tiger and some gadgets. The game didn’t have much of storyline, as it was released in the early 2000s, when online slots games were quite simple in their operation.
The second game in the series is called Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword. It has double the number of paylines of the original and much more advanced graphics. The game also has a more advanced plot, as the player must help Lara Croft recover an ancient, long-lost sword. In the bonus round, the player sends her to an exotic location, in which she must search for the relic. Along the way, she will encounter booby traps, that hinder her mission, and treasures, which could amount to a 450x multiplier!
With the success of both of these games, there is the possibility that Microgaming will launch more sequels in this series. The Tomb Raider franchise has proven itself to be highly profitable, and players are certainly looking forward to playing new titles in the future.
