Tomb Raider Secret Of The Sword Slot Review
What We Say -Many slot sequels are little more than a gentle update of the original. Thunderstruck II, for example, is really only a marginally slicker version of its predecessor. Tomb Raider 2, though, builds comprehensively on the old favourite, upping the paylines from 15 to 30, but decorating the Lara Croft-helmed game with a slew of new bonus games.
Perhaps the most rewarding of these will be the Free Spins round, where you have Rolling Reels adding to the high potential for combos. This works very like Tumbling Reels and its copycats, and has symbols explode when they make up part of a winning combo - their places will be taken by further symbols, allowing for more combos, and so on.. Experienced slotsters will have seen this feature before, but it's still nice to be able to activate it.
The most distinctive of the sections, though, is the Global Adventure Bonus Feature. This supplies the game with more of a narrative, sending Lara to various locations across the world, looking for fragments of the Sword of the title. You must pick from various objects to keep moving, so you must always choose carefully.. The Shootout Bonus game can be accessed from here, and you'll pick from a set of golden discs. These games really come down to little more than picking items, but they still help add a bit of variety.
The graphics are improved on those of the original, although they haven't been tweaked enough to be able to compete with the 3D showcases that proliferate nowadays. There's also a question-mark of whether you'll really want to tap into the various bonus games again and again. The joy of the Rolling Reels Free Spins Round may remind you that you could be having this much fun all the time with a game like Da Vinci Diamonds Dualplay. For keen adventurers, though, this is an interesting game, and a nice enhancement over the original.
How to Win - The Tomb Raider Logo is the Wild, and substitutes for most other symbols. Five Tomb Raider Logos gets 7,500-coin Jackpot. Three Key Scatters activates the Free Spins Game. This gives you 10 free spins and Rolling Reels. With each pair of consecutive combos, the Multiplier increases - to a maximum of 5x. Global Adventure Bonus Feature starts after a Passport appears in the centre of all five reels, and allows you to jet across a map looking for fragments of the Hidden Sword. Choose from artefacts in each loation. You may also be able to get access to the Shootout Bonus, where you have to shoot out discs. There's also a random Super Mode Feature, where you get five free spins and reels packed with Wilds.
