The groundbreaking online slot of Tomb Raider is now 10 years old! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a decade since this awesome and innovative video slot was launched by Microgaming in a first of its kind deal that opened the doors for many more to follow. Tomb Raider was the very first branded online slot and it saw Lara Croft jump into action from the silver screen to the home PC, and it’s even harder to believe that it was way back in 2006 when Tomb Raider mobile slots was launched! Shortly after the mobile release, Tomb Raider was given the HTML5 treatment and made available for Android and meant that smartphone and tablet users around the world could get their Tomb Raider slots thrills delivered to the palm of their hands.
The success of Tomb Raider slots led to the inevitable sequel, and in 2008 we saw the release of Lara Croft: Secret of the Sword which fans of the original adored, as did many new players, and of course both are still as popular as ever and gracing the lobbies of all good Microgaming online casinos.
The 5 reel and 15 payline slot is arguably the most instantly recognizable video slot around, and of course although there have been literally hundreds of new slots launched since Tomb Raider burst onto the scene, for many players, it’s still up there with the very best. The graphics and animations have stood the test of time and still look wonderful today, and of course on todays high powered, high definition mobile devices it does in fact look even better than it did all those years ago. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, set the standard for which other online slots had to strive to achieve, and it must be said that without this outstanding creation and the deal that was made between Microgaming and Eidos, then we may well not have anywhere near the amount of superb quality online slots that we have today.
