No ancient Egyptian ruler has been immortalised quite like Cleopatra. From Shakespearean tragedies to operas to plays to films, the Cleopatra slot game is just another instalment in the idolisation of the legendary Queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom.
Where To Play
On arrival at the Cleopatra slot, you’re met with a classic ancient Egyptian soundtrack and jingles upon a type of papyrus storyboard with beautiful Egyptian imagery. IGT, the makers of this slot, really do a great job of painting the scene of the Ptolemaic times.
When you properly get into the game, Cleopatra is pretty similar to most other slots, but the most alluring thing is that this game can be played as a progressive slot with jackpots worth up to £2m, and even the smaller wins can be huge.
The quality of the graphics are probably in the bottom half if you compare them to those others out there, but they’re not bad, just standard. The spins are pretty smooth too, but again, nothing extraordinary or innovative.
Regarding the symbols, as you’d expect, they’re all related to some sort of ancient Egyptian imagery. There’s a sphinx, a scarab (a dung beetle-type of thing), a sunshade, an inscribed stone, an agricultural flail, and an evil eye, plus the traditional A’s, K’s, Q’s, J’s, 10’s, 9’s and the elusive Mega Jackpot logo.
The finest symbol to hit is the Mega Jackpot logo which is the key to the millions. Five of those on centre payline on any spin at any price brings in the jackpot! Woof!
There is no bonus round on Cleopatra as such, but there is the opportunity for free spins winning up to 15 free spins, plus during your free spins every win is multiplied by five.
On the jackpot version of this slot you have to bet on all 20 lines, there is no option for picking and choosing, and this means you have a choice of betting between £20 and £100 per bet. If you’re playing the standard version, you can bet on lines which means you can bet anywhere between £1 and £4,000 per slot. The house edge is 4.98% on both versions.
There is an auto spin feature, and it’s pretty good too allowing you to play a specified number of spins without having to keep clicking spin, and you can set it so it stops after a certain win or loss.
Cleopatra is old school. Not as old school as the Egyptians themselves, but old school nonetheless. For those early adopters of the online casino world, Cleopatra will remind you of a time gone by, but this game is great because it offers all that nostalgia, with a silky modern twist.
Cleopatra has great graphics, a wonderfully relevant soundtrack, and excellent gameplay making it one of the better-looking games out there, with that wistful, evocative feel. There’s nothing it doesn’t have.
Plus, there is the chance to win over a £1m every time you play! What a game!
