Take a trip into the past, when Cleopatra still reigned over ancient Egypt. Will this IGT slot succeed in being just as dazzling as history’s most famous queen?
- Up to 180 free spins
- 10,000x jackpot
- Twenty flexible paylines
The name Cleopatra is instantly recognizable. Thousands of years have passed, but the world still remembers this queen of ancient Egypt.
She was said to be the most beautiful woman to have ever lived. She conquered the hearts of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.
Now, she is here to conquer players with the promise of an incredible top prize! Available special features include Wilds with multipliers and free spins
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
IGT’s background image is certainly aesthetically unique. We can recognize Egyptian architecture in the background.
However, the developers have added this weird blue-pink filter over the whole thing. This does not appear on the playing field, mind you.
All the symbol designs have normal colours, and fit the ancient Egyptian theme. It is not a deal-breaker, but it is certainly distracting.
The board is made up of five reels and three rows. Players also get twenty paylines, which they can toggle at will.
Wins are formed by finding three or more matching icons next to one another. Winning combinations must follow an active payline, and need to start with the leftmost reel.
Wilds can appear in any position, and can substitute for all symbols except for Scatters. If one or more Wilds is part of a winning combination, that win will be doubled.
Multiple Wilds do not grant additional win multipliers. In addition, the win multiplier boost does not apply to wins that only consist of Wilds.
Three, four or five Scatters appearing in any position on the board grant fifteen free spins.
The special feature can be reactivated, granting an additional fifteen extra turns. You can get a maximum of 180 free spins from a single special feature activation.
During free spins, all wins except one are tripled in value. The sole exception to this is the five-of-a-kind Wild win.
Where To Play Cleopatra?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for this game is 95.02%. This is almost a whole percentage point below the current industry average. However, this was considered average back when this release first launched.
You can bet between $0.10 and $600 on each spin. This is a fantastic spread of bets, but it is sadly not present in all casinos.
The math model offers a medium variance. It makes the game feel good to play, as you are not grinding for massive wins to get ahead.
However, if you do want to win big, you certainly can. Cleopatra has a 10,000x jackpot only the most determined players will win!
There is no denying this slot has a long and storied history. It was one of the most popular land based machines out there.
This has resulted in many sequels and copycats trying to capitalise on its success. If you are interested in this title as a piece of history, it is great.
As a game you play every day? Not so much. The special features are outdated, as is the RTP. We cannot give it more than 3 out of 5 stars.
