Cave Raiders Deluxe has five reels and twenty-five paylines. Players can bet from 0.1 per reel to about 50 per reel. This broad betting range is done to ensure that the game cuts across the financial spectrum. Thus, if you are cash strapped, you can still have a good time. Also, if you are a high roller, you would also be able to take risks that are commensurate with your social station.
The wild symbol is the skull icon and it can be used to substitute any of the remaining other icons except for the scatter. The scatter is an airplane icon. Getting three or more of the scatter icon entitles players to free spins. Three scatters would result in 15 free spins, Four scatters would be 25 free spins while five scatters would give players 50 free spins.
The game has two major characters: one that resembles Lara Croft and another that attempts to be Indiana Jones. These two characters guard both sides of the reel. The background of the game is a rocky rainforest, vividly lending credence to the adventure theme.
