Microgaming is celebrating 10 years of its Lara Croft: Tomb Raider™ online slot.
Having signed an exclusive deal with Eidos for the Tomb Raider brand in 2004, Microgaming has the longest-running brand partnership in the industry. Through this agreement, Microgaming launched the world’s first branded online slot, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

Upon its release the slot was an instant hit. But more importantly, it has remained a highly popular game for an entire decade.
High in demand and in anticipation of the explosion of mobile gaming, in 2006, Microgaming developed the branded game in J2ME for use on mobile. Web App, Android and HTML5 versions followed, extending the game’s reach across mobile and tablet devices.
The game was also configured for use in a tournament environment, when Microgaming launched its multi-player software in 2007.
Following the success of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider™ online slot, in 2008 a hotly-anticipated sequel was released, Lara Croft: Secret of the Sword™, sending players on a brand-new mission to track down fragments of a lost sword.
Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, comments: “The Tomb Raider brand is instantly recognisable, 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!”
