Online slots that feature a theme based on ancient times and historic characters almost always give slots enthusiasts a refreshing experience. When it comes to historic and ancient slot themes, you will find Norse, Roman and Greek characters at the forefront. Some machines feature mythological figures but this slot is based on somebody who actually existed back in ancient Egypt - Cleopatra. She lived between 69BC and 30BC and was the last pharaoh of Egypt as well as the partner of Roman politician Mark Antony.
The slot machine game Cleopatra is a five-reel, 20-payline game produced and distributed by IGT. This machine comes with graphics and animation that constantly reminds you of the theme and of this ancient queen. While the images and movement of the machine may appear to be somewhat dated, it actually adds to the charm of this Egyptian themed slots game.
The game lets you travel back to Ancient Egypt, and to play, you will first need to change your bets to the amount you want to wager with each spin. The coin value goes from 0.01 to 100 and this can be done by clicking the plus and minus symbols beside the "Line Bet" button. The "Lines" button changes the number of paylines played and lets you increase and decrease the number of lines you play. To trigger the game, you need to click "Spin" and, if you wish to turn the reels multiple times without any interruptions, just press "Auto Spin" and you’re good to go.
The Cleopatra slot machine is definitely a well-designed game with a free spins feature that can be easily triggered. While the soundtrack might seem a little too mystical for some, it does burst into life whenever you land a win on a payline.
Expect to see a plethora of symbols in this game, which all work to help raise your chances of winning big. The lower value symbols are 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A, and each is intricately designed to fit the theme. The higher value symbols are a range of Egyptian hieroglyphs that include the Eye of Horus and a scarab beetle. Cleopatra herself is the most valuable symbol in this game and is also the wild symbol. The Sphinx is the scatter symbol and triggers the bonus feature as well offering 100x your total bet if you land five of this on the reels.
The special symbol to watch out for is the Sphinx. Get three or more of this symbol on the reels and receive 15 free spins after triggering the Free Spins bonus round. You can receive a total of 180 free spins in this bonus round, and a winning combination in this round augments your winnings by 3x. The scatter symbol also doubles the stakes if the player lands two or more of it in a regular game.
Cleopatra can substitute herself for any other symbol in the game except the scatters and lets the player make winning combinations like nothing you have ever seen before. Cleopatra also allows the player a shot at doubling the payout if the player can land a winning combination. If a player can collect five wilds on the reels, there is a prize of 10,000 credits and the chance to come away with 100X the wager amount. Now, that’s a queen-sized payout!
