The Tomb Raider franchise returns one last time with our heroine in Ancient Egypt on a quest for epic treasure. Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs online slots game is the third slot in the series that first debut in 1996. Microgaming, in collaboration with Triple Edge Studios, keeps true to its magic formula of high-end graphics, while adding new features, symbols and rewards. Central to the action on this 5-reel, 243 ways-to-win slot, is the Rolling Reels feature which can ultimately pocket you 7343x your stake on every free spin. There is also a generous jackpot feature where you can win 5000x your stake prize.
The Rolling Reels mechanism is one of our favourite features as it is a great way to collect several wins in a continuous sequence. It works as follows when playing the Lara Croft slot: Any symbols that are part of a winning combination will disappear, and new ones above will drop down to fill the spaces. Note that the win pays at the basic rate, but if a new combination appears, an escalating multiplier comes into play. The blocks below the reels will light up as 1x, 2x, 3x, and finally, 5x multipliers will be activated.
As you spin the reels, you will notice wild symbols are being collected to increase your chances of randomly triggering the jackpot game once the Rolling Reels session has ended. There are 3 pools to win from; the Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot. These are worth 15, 100 and 5,000 times your stake respectively.
The free spins round initiates when you land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere in view. You will be awarded
between 8 and 32 free spins. Starting with a 3x multiplier, each consecutive win will increase the multiplier to 6x, 9x and a whopping 15x! You can also retrigger the feature to give you a further 8 free spins whenever 3 scatters appear. In total you can land up to 48 extra free meaning a grand total of 80 free spins.
We’re happy to report that Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs is a considerable improvement from its predecessors. Aside from looking amazing, the Rolling Reels, multipliers and ample free spins should keep you well entertained. It is a high-variance slot that offers payouts of 7,343 times your stake on each free spin involving the 15x multiplier. Not forgetting the 3 fixed jackpots to be won with the Grand Jackpot worth a neat 5,000 times your stake.
