Tomb Raider - Secret of the Sword

Whilst you might write Tomb Raider – Secret of the Sword off as a game just for the blokes, you couldn’t be more wrong. Yes, it’s based on the popular video game and follow-up movie starring Angelina Jolie, but it’s also the sequel to the original slot which was very popular with video slot fans.

Unlike the film, there’s no excessive pouting with this slot. Instead, it’s all about the action as you help our heroine, Lara Croft, travel the world on a mission to find the lost pieces of a priceless and ancient sword.

It’s a five-reel progressive game with thirty pay-lines and a max jackpot of 75,000 coins.

Thanks to a betting range of 0.01 – 0.20, it’s well-placed to serve all types of players. There are tons of fantastic features to keep you glued to your screen. These include Super Mode, free spins with rolling reels, a Global Adventure Bonus, Shoot Out Bonus, wilds, multipliers, and scatters – phew!

The graphics are stunning and almost photo-realistic, whilst the stereo sound effects have to be heard to be believed. The game’s symbols are made up of five different images of Lara Croft, playing cards ranging from 10 through to Ace, a passport, and an Excalibur key.

Wild Symbol:

The wild symbol is a portrait of Lara’s face, and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Passport and Excalibur Key. As well as helping to make additional winning combinations, two or more of these wilds will pay you anything from 2 up to 7,500 coins.

Scatter Symbol:

The Excalibur Key is the scatter symbol for the Tomb Raider - Secret of the Sword slot. If three of more of these appear on your screen, you’ll be instantly awarded ten free spins.

Bonus Round:

There are three different bonus games to enjoy with Tomb Raider - Secret of the Sword:

The first activates with three or more Excalibur Key Symbols and this bonus round will give you ten free spins. If, during this time, you get any winning combination, the winning symbols will explode, allowing the reels to roll down and replace them with new symbols.

Get two or more consecutive winning combinations and the multiplier value will increase up to a maximum of 5x.

The Super Mode feature triggers randomly, and offers five free spins to those lucky enough to activate it. While Super Mode is on, you’ll see multiple wilds appear and remain in place on the reels, which can help improve your chances of winning substantially.

The third bonus round is the Global Adventure feature. To unlock it, you’ll need to spin a Passport symbol in the centre position of each reel. Once inside, you’ll set off on a mission to travel to five different locations looking for the lost sword pieces.

In each destination, there are six objects to choose from, which either contain a sword fragment, cash prizes, Hidden Treasure or a booby trap. Provided you don’t pick two traps in a row, you’ll stay in the game. Locate the Hidden Treasure, and you’ll be off to the Shootout Bonus game where you’ll need to pick the disc with the greatest value.

Our Verdict:

With so many features packed into one explosive game, Tomb Raider - Secret of the Sword is the smart choice for fans of adventure, action, and Microgaming slots.
