Cleopatra Video Slot review

Cleopatra is a 5 reel 20 payline video slot that is powered by IGT. The game is based on Cleopatra who was the last pharaoh of Egypt. She is famous due to her alleged affairs with Julius Caesar and for her beauty and intelligence. She is believed to have bathed in milk.

Anyway, the theme of the game is of ancient Egypt and is a classic that is very much played in land based casinos. You can play from 20p to £100 a spin. It’s one of the first slots I ever played online after a trip to Las Vegas about 7 years ago. I was fascinated by people playing Cleopatra religiously and have found the obsession to transpire online. The game was created by IGT as a result of the popularity of Aristocrat’s Queen of the Nile.

Cleopatra herself is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except the scatter to help form a winning combination. When you do this, the Cleopatra symbol changes to ‘Double’ meaning it is the multiplier symbol (2x).

The Sphinx is the scatter symbol and if you get 3 or more of these symbols, you will activate the Cleopatra Bonus feature. The bonus game awards you 15 free spins with a multiplier of 3x – meaning all wins are trebled. Also, if you get 3 or more Sphinx symbols during the free spins, you will get another 15 free spins. There’s a massive 180 free spins to be earned though – my best return was just over 420 times my stake too!

Cleopatra is still one the most popular slots in history (both land based and online) – as a result, a sequel was created (Cleopatra II). The fact the graphics aren’t that sharp and the fast gameplay appeals to me and makes this game a firm favourite for many slot lovers. If you like ancient Egyptian-themed slots, I also recommend you play Desert Treasure II by Playtech.
