spin3-lara-croft-androidAnyone who used to play the Tomb Raider games back in the day and lusted after Lara Croft will be pleased at the news that a mobile gaming solutions provider will bringing the slot to the fast growing Android market for the first time.

Spin3, powered by Microgaming, will launch the app, which will be available to use across all devices including smart phone and tablets.

Matti Zinder, Head of Spin3, said, “2010 was a big breakthrough year for Android, but 2011 is set to be the year it dominates the mainstream mobile marketplace. In fact analyst house Canalys has already named Android as the world’s leading mobile platform, outselling Nokia’s Symbian platform for the first time.

“While Android devices are penetrating every level of the market – from low resolution devices such as HTC Wildfire, to the high-end Google Nexus S, as well as tablets – fragmentation of handsets represents an added level of complexity for developers and can result in a limited gaming experience for some consumers.

“Tomb Raider as a native Android App runs at any resolution and cuts through the fragmentation of Android devices to deliver a superior gaming experience across all handsets.”

Whether you can use the cheat that used to get virtual Lara Croft naked is not yet clear. One thing’s for sure though; Spin3 is making tracks in the extremely lucrative mobile gambling sector, something that will stand them in extremely good stead for years to come.
