The game design
Created by online casino gaming heavyweights, IGT, this simple five-reel, 20-payline slot game boasts excellent graphics, reminiscent of a long lost Egypt landscape. Available to play on a desktop, tablet or mobile, this cross platform game can be played whenever you want to.
Set within a Pharaoh’s tomb, the Egyptian theme is everywhere. Low scoring symbols are 9, 10, J, Q and K while high scoring ones include various Egyptian icons such as the Eye of Horus and a scarab beetle. The highest scoring symbol is, of course, that of the Queen herself, Cleopatra.
The Cleopatra Enigma
Was she really the most beautiful female leader of all time or was she simply a ruthless genius, happy to do whatever it took to retain power? We’ll never know the true characteristics of the last real Pharaoh of Egypt, but we do know that her legacy is both mysterious and intriguing.
Cleopatra bore Julius Caesar’s child and then famously married Marc Antony (after two marriages to her own brothers.) Her attempt to bring unity to Rome and Egypt ultimately led to Egypt’s fall to the Roman Empire. The lure of both Ancient Egypt and Queen Cleopatra herself is evident in the sheer number of slots games and casinos designed on the theme. This game is one of the original Cleopatra games still on the market today, and for many, the first is still the best.
How to play this Cleopatra slots game
Game play is straightforward, another reason for its popularity with both seasoned players and beginners alike. Bets start at $0.01 per line up to $5 a line and always apply to all 20 paylines, making the minimum bet $0.20 and the maximum $100. When you are ready, either Autospin or press Spin to enjoy your game over a longer and more tantalizing time period.
Bonus features of Cleopatra
The bonus features in this game are simple, but very generous. The Cleopatra symbol is also the WILD, which substitutes for all but the scatter symbol. When one or more Cleopatras act as wilds to make a win, the win itself is quadrupled! When five or more of these Cleo symbols appear, you’ve activated the Jackpot feature, which could see you win up to 10,000 coins!
The Sphinx SCATTER comes in groups of threes to trigger a free spins session, which are given in groups of 15, but can be up to a staggering 180 free spins! All wins during the free spins feature come with a x3 multiplier. The Jackpot feature and amazing free spins of up to 180 are what makes this game so special, and two of the reasons it became such a classic in the world of slots. Give this game a go, and if you like it why not try Cleopatra II, IGT’s much anticipated and highly lauded sequel?
