Microgaming Celebrates 10 Years of Tomb Raider
Date Added: February 12, 2015
Microgaming launched a branded online pokie called Tomb Raider back in 2004. To this day, the Tomb Raider pokie remains one of the most popular of all Microgaming pokies and it can now be found in more than 300 different Microgaming powered casinos, many of which accept New Zealand players.
The Tomb Raider pokie from Microgaming has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines and it was Microgaming’s first ever branded pokie. This game is based on the exploits of the female action hero, Lara Croft. The Wild Symbol is the Tomb Raider logo, the Bonus Symbol is the Golden Idol and the Scatter Symbol is Lara Croft.
The excitement begins when the three or more of the Golden Idol Bonus Symbols appear along any of the active paylines. You get to take part in a fun side game to win cash prizes. All you need to do is click on the objects to reveal some guaranteed prizes. The other main bonus feature available on this pokie is a Free Spins Bonus Round.
This Free Spins Bonus will instantly trigger when three or more of the Lara Croft Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels. You will be awarded 10 Free Spins and each win that occurs during this bonus round will be multiplied by 3X. It is also possible to retrigger even more Free Spins, plus the Tomb Bonus can also be triggered during the Free Spins Bonus Round.
“The Tomb Raider brand is instantly recognisable, so when we signed the licensing agreement back in 2004, we were incredibly excited. As the industry’s first branded slot, we knew the game would be popular; it has now become a Microgaming classic,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever. We obtained these comments from the official Microgaming website.
Following from the success of this action & feature packed pokie, Microgaming then went on to release the sequel. Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword (aka Tomb Raider 2) first arrived in casinos in 2008 and this pokie has become equally as popular as the prequel and it can now be found in just as many fully licensed NZ online casinos.
If you want to play on the either of the Tomb Raider pokies right now, head over to one of our highly recommended New Zealand online casinos, some of which include Casino-Mate, Royal Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Red Flush Casino, Spin Palace Casino and Ruby Fortune Casino. These top rated online casinos are all powered entirely by downloadable and non-downloadable Microgaming software, they all accept NZ dollars and they are all licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority (formerly the Lotteries & Gaming Authority of Malta).
