Microgaming is celebrating 10 years of the launch of the hugely successful online casino game, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider video slot.
Unlike many other gaming providers, Microgaming is proud to announce that for 10 years since its exclusive partnership with Eidos, it is still running the world’s first branded online slot, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. As soon as it was released on online gambling sites in the UK, it has been an immediate success ever since. The 5 reel, 15 pay line slot mirrors the action and excitement portrayed in the original movie.
In 2006 when mobile casinos became popular, Microgaming launched the mobile version with the development of the J2ME. Other developments followed to enable easier accessibility to Lara Croft: Tomb Raider online slot followed with the use of Web App, Android and HTML5 versions. This marketing strategy, allowed for the expansion of the game to mobile and tablet devices.
Microgaming’s slot game remains highly sought-after
Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever, said of this historical event under UK gambling laws when Microgaming acquired the rights to create a casino slot, that “Tomb Raider brand is instantly recognizable, so when we signed the licensing agreement back in 2004, we were incredibly excited. As the industry’s first branded slot, we knew the game would be popular; it has now become a Microgaming classic!”
Again, in 2007, the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider online slot was again under configuration to be used in Tournaments with the launching of its multi-player software. Following the success of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider online slot, in 2008 the sequel, Lara Croft: Secret of the Sword, for which fans were waiting impatiently, didn’t disappoint. Excited players were soon hunting down pieces of lost swords in a brand new mission.
