…and taking #ThrowbackThursday to a whole new level. What were you doing 20 years ago? Graduating? Getting married? Wondering about Bill Clinton’s election as US president? Watching Leonardo DiCaprio portray Romeo in Baz Luhrmann’s version of Romeo and Juliet? Standing in line to be the first to own the Tomb Raider game?
Yes, you read correctly… it’s been 20 years since the scantily clan Lara Croft first brightened up the gaming world with her agile tactics and skills. But Lara wasn’t always a girl! *gasp* The original game designers had actually planned for the explorer to be a dashing fellow named Fletcher Christian, but after some discussion (and a fair amount of booze) Fletcher became Lara.
Following the tremendous success of the first game, several more were released, for various gaming consoles and set-ups. And of course, the avid movie-goers could not be forgotten. 2001 the first Tomb Raider movie made its debut on big screen and became an immediate hit, busting the box office with a profit of $274.7 million! Lara Croft became synonymous with Angelina Jolie and a new action hero was born. T-shirts, action figures, posters, cos play – Lara Croft was absolutely everywhere – even in the online casinos!
The Tomb Raider slot game was released 2004 and followed the empire’s footsteps in every way possible! 12 years later and the game is still an undeniable hit. Possibly because of Lara Croft, but probably because of the enticing bonus features the game offers. The game does not only offer a Free Spins bonus, during which all wins are tripled, but also an exciting bonus game where players have to enter the mysterious treasure tomb and pick enchanted idols, each of which carry magical winnings with them.
The game is styled to resemble the games rather than the movies, keeping with the original Tomb Raider theme. The 5x3 reels feature various Lara Croft symbols, the enchanted statue and many other game-inspired symbol to keep you on your toes! The wild and scatter symbols trigger the above-mentioned bonuses and ensure that boredom won’t be associated with this classic game.
Unlock the inner explorer in yourself and enter the enchanted tomb together with Lara Croft! Play this game and other slot game and other free slot machines at the Royal Vegas Canada Casino! Log into your casino account and take #ThrowbackThursday to new levels with this exciting game – who knows, it could become #WinnerThursday… Good luck!
