Cave Raiders HD is based on a Lara Croft tomb raider style. Set is a some sort of jungle with the Lara character swinging from a vine on the left and some sort of Indiana Jones wannabe on the right. In the truth the add absolutely nothing to the game and make a bit of movement when you win. But actually, it looks alright and although it is another fairly simple nektan slot its pretty good. I have to say that this is one very simple slot yet I found it quite enjoyable to play. There are no video bonus rounds or anything like that. You’re playing to win some free spins and also you have a wild symbol to help complete winning lines, of which there are 25. Perhaps it was just my day, but I had a few wins and the free spins seem to come up fairly regularly. But heres the thing, despite a decent stake I still didn’t win much, well not enough to get really excited about or add any funds to my pension pot! The game itself has been designed for mobile players like all nektan games and looks great with the HD graphics. The desktop version doesn’t have anywhere near the same clarity of graphics, but its still fine to play.
Like most nektan slots Cave Raiders is ideal for those who don’t like to spend a lot. The minimum bet amount is 0.01p so for all 25 lines its 25p per stake, but you can reduce the number of lines if you so wish. For those of you out there who like to bet a bit bigger you’ll be able to place a total bet of £25. The maximum win for a single line is £1,000 so this means the maximum win available is an attractive £25,000.
As mentioned earlier the game has a wild symbol, which in this case is a skull and two spears, yup very Indiana Jones like. As normal this will help complete winning lines and will substitute any symbols except for the free spins. When it comes to free spins this is pretty good as well. To trigger the free spins you’ll need a minimum of 3 free spin symbols. There are 3, 4 and 5 symbols which can appear and if they do you’ll be awarded 15, 25 and a very generous 50 free spins respectively. When I spent a bit of time playing this game while writing this review, I never had more than 3 free spin symbols appear, nor did any appear while in the free spin mode which can happen. I’ll also be honest and say that I never won huge amounts, but I did win none the less.
To summarise this cave raiders slot review. I had fun playing playing this slot. The gimmicks with the two characters don’t really add anything to the game, but thats to be expected. The idea is also not that original but the main thing is that its quite good fun to play. Its not the kind of slot you could play for hours and hours nor are you likely to be able to retire from work, but on the whole its not a bad effort.
