Spin3, the leading wireless casino system provider, today announced they are bringing Microgaming's popular Tomb Raider™ Online Video Slot game to the mobile phone.
Microgaming, the world's leading online gaming software provider, has exclusively licensed Tomb Raider Video Slot for wireless use from Eidos Interactive. Spin3 will be the only wireless casino provider to offer Tomb Raider Video Slot, which is themed around the queen of videogaming, Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider computer game series. The game has been added to Spin3's mobile gaming suite which is powered by Microgaming's Gamewire v2.0 software, and available for download now.
Tomb Raider Video Slot, launched by Microgaming in October 2004, is a five reel, 15 payline multiple coin video slot with a "wild and scatter" symbol, bonus feature and free spins. Players can bet up to five coins on each of the 15 paylines, taking the maximum wager per spin to 75 coins in a range of denominations from a cent to a dollar. If users place the maximum bet, users can win up to $37,500, whilst the Free Spin x3 multiplier allows users to increase winnings to $112,500.
The mobile version of the game will also feature rich graphics, made possible by Microgaming's GameWire v2.0 software. In keeping with Tomb Raider's adventure theme, the mobile user will be immersed in a detailed interface featuring Lara Croft herself.
"Tomb Raider and its heroine Lara Croft are iconic gaming brands and Spin3 is proud to be launching Tomb Raider Video Slot into the mobile market," said Matti Zinder, CEO of Spin3. "Consumers will now be able to experience and enjoy this hugely popular game in a new and exciting way while on the move."
"The original Tomb Raider video slot proved to be a huge hit with consumers when we launched it in October 2004," said Roger Raatgever, CEO, Microgaming. "We are delighted to have secured these exclusive rights and are excited to be working with Spin3 to launch Tomb Raider to a wider mobile audience, and build on the success of the game."
