It has been seen in Hollywood that sequels usually turnout to be damp squibs and even fail to cash in on the popularity of the original. However in the world of online slots, Microgaming has come out with a sequel that has left the original far behind. In 2004 Microgaming had released the online slots game Tomb Raider. Based on the Lara Croft movie that starred Angelina Jolie, Tomb Raider became popular overnight. Four years later in 2008 Microgaming released a sequel to Tomb Raider called Secret of the Sword. This online slots game has turned out to be even more popular.

Secret of the Sword has 5 reels, 30 paylines and 33 winning combinations. The symbols on the reels echo the Lara Croft theme and include portrait, waterfall, guns, bike and city. The online slots game has two fixed jackpots, the first of 7,500 coins and the second of 2,000 coins. The coin denominations are relatively low at $0.01, $0.02, $0.05, $0.10 and $0.20, which is one of the reasons for the popularity of the game. A maximum of 300 coins can be wagered, which works out to a maximum bet of $60. The Autoplay feature is available.

The wild symbol is the Lara Croft portrait. In Secret of the Sword the wild symbol does not multiply the winnings. The scatter symbol is the Excalibur Key. The real popularity of this online slots lies in its two bonus games. The bonus game on the second screen actually has two games. The Global Adventure bonus game is activated by the passport symbol on the central reel. The theme is to assist Lara Croft in finding the Secret of the Sword. This is a multilevel game in which picking the "correct" box takes the player to the next level that offers larger bonuses. The Shoot-out bonus game is activated by the disc symbol and in this game the player picks a box that reveals his bonus prize. The bonus game on the reels provides 10 free spins and is activated by three or more scatter symbols. The winnings can be multiplies up to a maximum of 5 times and additional free spins cannot be re-triggered. Undoubtedly the best feature of Secret of the Sword is the Super Mode. In this mode the graphics and animation are simply stunning. The Super Mode is a 5 Free Spins mode on the normal reels. It has Lara Croft swinging across the screen and landing on a symbol, which automatically becomes the wild symbol for that spin.

Secret of the Sword can be played at Microgaming online casinos such as All Jackpots Casino, Vegas Joker Casino and Vegas 7 Casino.
