Lara Croft Temples and Tombs Review
Lara Croft Temples and Tombs
Lara Craft Temples and Tombs is a modern 5-reel, 243 payline video-game themed slot developed by Microgaming. As the name of this slot suggests, it's based on the famous heroine Lara Croft, who made her name in the 1996 action-adventure game Tomb Raider.
This slot utilises a number of popular bonus features and mechanics that keep players engaged, this includes a rolling reels feature (also known as cascading wins) that sees new symbols drop onto the screen when winning combinations are formed, if this wasn't enough, players also see a multiplier trail climb up in value to a total of 5x (15x during the bonus) after each successful cascade.
We're still not done there though! Players can trigger a total of 80 free spins and win one of three fixed jackpots, with the largest jackpot offering players 5,000x their stake.
Lara Croft Temples and Tombs is a gorgeously designed slot, which doesn't come as too much of a surprise considering it was developed by Triple Edge Studios, a developer known for creating high-quality, good looking slot games in recent years.
The reels are set in the walls of an old crumbling temple filled with treasure, whilst symbols are set into blocks of stone that fall from the top of the game screen. Low paying symbols include a water canister, torch, medical bag, grappling hook, Anubis and Sobek. High paying symbols include Lara Croft on a motorcycle, Lara Craft swinging diving into action, Lara Croft firing a pistol and Lara Croft staring through the screen at you!
In terms of special symbols, the free spins symbol is a leather-bound book and wilds are scarab coins (that are collected and placed into a pot), the more scarab coins that are collected, the more likely the progressive jackpot bonus feature is going to trigger.
When it comes to the soundtrack, this game features an epic orchestral score that sounds somewhat reminiscent of older Egpytian-themed slots... We'd usually complain about this repetitive music, however, this game has a much grander feel about it than others and it genuinely sounds fantastic, so there are no complaints from us.
Triple Edge Studios haven't strayed too far from the conventional when it comes to Lara Croft Temples and Tombs, all of the buttons to play this game can be found along a standard black action bar at the bottom of the game screen. Here players can set their stake, up to 100 automated spins, set turbo spins and access the game menu and settings via a hamburger menu.
Above the action bar are four multipliers (1x, 2x, 3x, 5x) that light up whenever one is active, reminiscent of what you'd find in Gonzo's Quest and Gonzo's Quest Megaways. Above the game reels are the 3 jackpots totals that can be won, the Minor, Major and Grand jackpot.
This fantastic video-game themed slot is a huge improvement on previous Lara Croft slots that have come out in previous years! Not only are the graphics absolutely stunning, but the bonus features and mechanics are truly brilliant, if you've played Gonzo's Quest before you'll certainly spot some similarities between the two games, and that's really not a bad thing at all.
