Tomb Raider 2 The Action-Packed, Feature-Rich “Secret of the Sword” Sequel
Tomb Raider 2 is the highly successful sequel to the Microgaming Tomb Raider branded online slot. A five-reel online gambling entertainment containing thirty (30)-non-fixed paylines, this Tomb Raider 2 version is as action-packed as it appears. It features more than just the usual Wild and Scatter Symbols and Free-Spins Bonus Game.
The Tomb Raider 2 Wild Symbol
A close-up image of Lara Croft is the Wild icon that could take the place of regular symbols as means to complete a payline win. The Lara Croft Wild transforms into a Tomb Raider 2 Logo, to potentially complete payline wins. The Wild Symbol can also create a payline combo starting with two (2) symbols. It awards five (5) coins at the least, and up to as many as 7,500 coins for a set of five (5) Lara Croft Wilds forming a full payline win.
The Tomb Raider 2 Scatter Symbol
Sub-captioned as “Secret of the Sword,” this Tomb Raider slot features an Excalibur Key as Scatter Symbol. Slot players must aim to land on at least three (3) Excalibur Keys, being the Scatter Symbol combo that activates a set of Free-Spins Round with great pay-boosting elements.
The Tumbling Reels game feature comes into play in the bonus game, whenever a free spin produces a payline win. The winning symbols tend to shatter and disappear, subsequently creating gaps to where the rest of the icons drop into place.
Hopefully, the new icon positions form more payline wins. This is because the Tumbling Reels feature remains active for as long as consecutive wins occur. Value multipliers starting with 2x, increase in every succeeding win occurrence until it reaches the max 5x value multiplier. However, if the reel tumbling or dropping action does not result to a win, the feature is temporarily disabled until the next free-spins payline win occurs.
In addition to the Tumbling Reels bonus wins, the Excalibur Scatter icon awards Scatter Pays, for every two (2) or more of such symbols landing on any position after a spin.
The Tomb Raider 2 “Super Bonus Mode”
This is another reward-giving round but is randomly activated during the base game. Five (5) free spins will be awarded to a “Super Mode” player. During the free spin motions, Wild Symbols with varying Value Multipliers appear at random, and stays fixated on the same position during the free round. It is possible therefore for a “Super Mode Reel” to have multiple Wild Multiplier Symbols in play, during the bet-free spins.
The Tomb Raider 2 “Global Adventure” Bonus Game
This free-spin segment is activated by the Passport Symbol, which appears only on the center row of the reels. Each center-row Passport icon that comes into view gradually sets off the “Global Adventure (GA)” Bonus Game. In a continuous base game play, and independent of the Free Spins Bonus Round, the separate appearances of a Passport Symbol in the center row of all five (5) reels, sets off the GA Bonus Game.
The GA bonus feature comprises different virtual key global locations presented as free interactive game choices to the GA player. Rewards in the form of random bonus multipliers, hidden coin treasures, and fragments of the Excalibur Sword with corresponding bonus amounts are available as extra prizes. According to the Tomb Raider 2 game info, up to 135,000 coins are available as extra winnings in a single GA Bonus round. Still, the game could end abruptly, as one of the icons offered as “Click Me” choice is a game-stopper symbol.
Tomb Raider 2 is still one of the best if not the finest Microgaming online video slot releases! Rated A-1 for visual appeal, sound track and most important of all, for pay-boosting features.
