Isle of Man-based software development company, Microgaming, and independent global game studio, Triple Edge Studios, have launched the latest slot game featuring the world-famous intrepid adventurer, in Lara Croft® Temples and Tombs™.
The anxiously-awaited title is now available exclusively to Microgaming operators.
In January, the leading software provider to the online gambling industry celebrated its 15-year relationship with Japanese video game developer, Square Enix, by renewing its agreement to produce a third branded online slot game for the Lara Croft® brand.
Triple Edge Studios developed the brand-new online slot exclusively for Microgaming, and in this adventure, the tough-as-nails English archaeologist embarks on yet another quest for ancient Egyptian treasure.
Symbols and features:
In the new five-reel, 243 ways title, the iconic heroine seeks out a fortune in a legendary temple that remains hidden beyond the game’s 5×3 grid of Rolling Reels™. It is there that a winning combination of matching symbols explode and make way for fresh symbols to land. Back-to-back wins are rewarded with a steadily growing multiplier trail, which in the base game, builds to a maximum 5x multiplier.
The well-chronicled Egyptian escapade is complemented with visually appealing artwork, with Lara sharing the reels with the fearsome ancient deities Sobek and Set.
Players who happen upon the golden scarab, which serves as the game’s wild symbol, have a chance to uncover a path to impressive rewards and collect the mystical gem found above the reels set in the golden scarab jackpot. As the nail-biting adventure progresses, adventures mirroring those found in the fearless Lara’s journal will reveal the ancient tomb containing extra spins, where wins begin on a 3x multiplier, a trail of which can increase to a 15x multiplier.
The bonus round is activated by a trio of journal symbols, which award eight extra spins. The golden scarab wild substitutes for all symbols and can be called upon to award as many as 32 extra spins.
Rolling Reels mechanic:
According to the official press release, Design Lead for Triple Edge, Brenden Walton, said…
“Welcome back, Lara! We are proud to present the latest slot game featuring the world-famous intrepid adventurer. A proven and popular mechanic, Rolling Reels™ opens up the potential for consecutive wins, with the multiplier trail adding a great sense of excitement as players chase increasing wins. The golden scarab jackpot is a standout feature offering a guaranteed Grand Jackpot up to 5,000 times the player’s bet. We were thrilled to work on Lara Croft® Temples and Tombs™, and we can’t wait to welcome players into an immersive world of ancient artefacts and timeless treasures.”
For its part, Chief Commercial Officer for Microgaming, Jean-Luc Ferriere, added…
“The release of Lara Croft® Temples and Tombs™ is a tremendously exciting moment for Microgaming, building on our longstanding branded relationship with Square Enix. The game reflects Triple Edge Studios’ passion and enthusiasm, making it a powerfully attractive product for new and established players.”
In addition to launching back-to-back online slots, Rockabilly Wolves and Space Spins late last month, the UK developer recently went live with its content across all of Mansion Group Limited‘s brands including Casino.com, MansionCasino, Slots Heaven, as well as its latest addition, MansionBet.
