October 12, 2012, 2:25 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- It seems Lara Croft, the character brought to life by Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider film, will never lose her appeal, especially among online casino players. For a number of years, this online pokies has fought off stiff competition from an ever-increasing range of games at Platinum Play Australia Online Casino to remain one of the most popular slots in the casino.
Tomb Raider is a five-reel, 15-payline video slot with a maximum jackpot of 112,500 in the Free Spins feature, thanks to a 3x Multiplier. This game was one of the first to combine a Free Spins feature, typical of Australian pokies games, with a typically American second screen bonus feature, giving players the best of both.
Tomb Raider was the first game to allow players to win their entry into the bonus screen through the Free Spins feature. This feature takes players to an underground tomb that contains 12 idols. Players can choose three, four or five of them, depending on the combinations that allowed them access to the feature. Naturally each idol bears a hidden gift.
Tomb Raider was released by Microgaming in 2004, and almost immediately took the online gambling world by storm. It’s held its position as one of the most popular games online for eight years – no mean feat in this rapidly changing digital environment.
Clearly good features, an action-packed theme, generous jackpots, and an unforgettable main character are the secret ingredients to long-lasting game popularity. Lara Croft has charisma in bundles, which has certainly helped Tomb Raider maintain its status as one of casino players’ favourite games of all time.
