In 2004, Microgaming secured an exclusive licensing deal with Tomb Raider, one of the best known and bestselling video game franchises of all time. In order to stay abreast of the evolution of Lara Croft's brand over the years, an exciting new Tomb Raider video slot was developed and launched in the 1st quarter of 2008.
The Secret of the Sword is an action-packed adventure slot, sporting over a dozen different bonus features, some of which have been patented. Players are required to collect Passport symbols across all the reels to activate the Global Adventure Bonus, where they can interactively send Lara to remote locations around the world in search of fragments of a lost sword. Hidden bonuses can be randomly activated at each location, giving players the chance to win additional treasure and play secret bonus games. Clever running commentary between Lara and her eye-in-the-sky back at HQ add a great deal of entertainment and humour to the game experience. Successfully dodging the booby traps and finding all 5 pieces of the lost sword will reward players a massive 450x their bet.
With the addition of not just 1 but 2 Free Spin features, including the ever popular Super Mode where Lara leaps and swings across the screen, adding Wild positions into the game to complete greater winning combinations. The main Free Spin feature introduces the innovative Rolling Reels™ functionality, whereby winning combinations are consumed and additional symbols drop down to potentially complete further pays. Consecutive Free Spin wins will increase the overall multiplier up to a maximum of 5x during the feature.
