What else is there to say about the Cleopatra slot game from IGT that hasn't already been said? Not a lot. This legendary title featuring is truly a classic among classics and is in fact the more searched for slot ever, alongside other games that originated in land-based casinos around the world like Rainbow Riches and Wolf Run. Let's find out what makes this such a popular game.
Cleopatra Slot Background
The 5 reel video slot features a sultry North African score which oscillates magnetically between fast and slow plucked guitar. It is mesmerising and hypnotic; no doubt the desired effect as Cleopatra coos in a distinctly American twang her sensual sweet nothings. “Very Pleasurable,” she purrs. “Look into my eyes,” she whispers, green irises painted with mauve eye shadow. “I wish you great prosperity” and “Twice is nice” she drips, as the Cleopatra Wild symbol will double the winnings of a payline. How could any player, specifically male, resist this queen who wishes for nothing except your prosperity and good fortune? (Genius, it is).
The Reel symbols are all inspired by the Ancient Egyptian theme. Apart from the aforementioned scatter symbol Sphinx and Cleopatra wild, there are scarabs; the amulets inspired by beetles that were used as personal seals or as charms to protect mummies. There is a crook and flail symbol; the former a sign of kingship and authority and the latter an agricultural tool used to separate grains from their husk, which became a Pharaoh’s symbol for fertility in the land. There is the hieroglyphic eye of Horus, the pharaoh’s symbol of power, health and protection. Finally, there is a cartouche, a carved tablet representing a scroll that often bore the name of a Pharaoh.
Cleopatra is a fairly simple slot, and as a fairly low volatility slot, you’ll find yourself winning often. On each of the 20 paylines, players can bet between 1p and £12.50. Toggling the Lines – or + will let you choose how many paylines you want to bet on. Likewise, toggling Stake – or + will allow you to increase or decrease your bet. If you bet the maximum £12.50 on all 20 paylines, that comes to a maximum bet of £250. So, if that’s the maximum bet, then what is the maximum jackpot? If you get 5 consecutive Cleopatra Wilds on a payline, then it pays out 10,000 credits. 10,000 credits x the top line bet of £12.50 makes a whopping grand prize. “I wish you great prosperity,” Cleopatra murmurs again.
Another way to win big is through the sphinx scatter symbols. For example, any two scatter symbols will pay out 6x the total bet. Three or more scatter symbols, apart from increasing your scatter award multiplier, will also trigger the Cleopatra Bonus.
