We Go on the Hunt for Egyptian Treasures in the New Microgaming Online Slot – Lara Croft Temples and Tombs!

32Red Casino Logo

32Red Casino has recently added the latest Microgaming slot to their casino titled Lara Croft Temples and Tombs. This is another online slot that has been developed by Triple Edge Studios.

The latest in a long-running theme this Lara Croft themed slot from Microgaming comes with a regular 5×3 reel layout, 243-way paylines and a series of rising multipliers thanks to the “Rolling Reels” feature and a Jackpot feature that is randomly triggered.

If you want a very brief idea of what to expect before playing this slot, think of a slot not too dissimilar to Gonzo’s Quest with a design style similar to Book of Ra and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

With such a big brand name as Lara Croft we were expecting this to be a blockbuster of a slot release, certainly the graphics are nicely done, the jackpot feature is definitely tempting with up 5000x wins on offer, and rising multipliers certainly always have potential for some nice wins, but after playtesting thoroughly we certainly had some reservations too.

The main base game plays out like many other rolling reels slot, the major difference is the Scarab wild collection above the slot, that can randomly award a spin on the Jackpot Wheel, along with this you have rising multipliers up to 5x in the base game and these get boosted to much higher multipliers in the free spins round.

The free spins round is triggered by landing the 3 scatter symbols and with the rolling reels feature in play the Scatters can also drop down into view on successive wins.

Overall Opinions

We really wanted to like the Lara Croft Temples and Tombs slot, as the previous Lara Croft slots have generally been quite volatile and had some interesting features, we do however feel that they may just have packed a little too much into this slot and a result the RTP seems to be spread across too many things.

Whilst any player is going to super happy if they hit the Grand Jackpot (5000x) in reality you are way more likely to be getting the 15x and 100x rewards, how much of the slots RTP is taken up by this feature we are unsure of but it certainly felt like it impacted the base game and bonus game wins.

In our playtests we struggled for long periods to get the free spins triggers, and when they did occur the end results were pretty mediocre, obviously a 15x multiplier with a top 5 of a kind symbol will result in a good win, but are playtests ended more in the range of 2x up to 50x range we overall left us fairly disappointed with this release.

Check this out if you are a big Lara Croft fan, otherwise, you will probably have way more fun playing a classic like Gonzo’s Quest.
