Cleopatra Gold Slot: Review

Cleopatra Gold: Demo

Another slot in IGT’s series that’s based on the famous Egyptian Queen is Cleopatra Gold. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that combines opulent design with some nifty extras. Look out for wilds that can double payouts, nudging wilds, respins and a free spins round where wilds can treble your awards. Play this medium variance slot on all devices from between 60p and £50 per spin. The RTP is 95.97%.

Blingy visuals

As you’d expect from a slot with this name and theme, there’s a lavish feel to the visuals in Cleopatra Gold. The sandy coloured reels include gold A to 9 royals as well as hieroglyph symbols. The best standard symbol is the scarab beetle which pays 5 x bet if you land 5 on a payline.

Wilds aplenty

Cleopatra and the Cleopatra Gold symbols are wild. As well as substituting for everything apart from the scatter symbol, they also offer awards of 1.66, 10 or 29.16 x bet if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. Land a wild in a standard winning combination and the payout gets a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled.

Gold spins

A Cleopatra Gold logo wild can transform into a gold wild and nudge up or down to fill the whole of the reel – in the Gold Spins feature. A full stack of Gold Wilds triggers a respin on a new set of reels. It’s possible to land up to 3 respins here with multiple reels turning wild.

Free spins with 3x wild multiplier

The gold burial mask is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll win an award equal to 5, 10 or 20 times your total bet. You’ll also trigger the Free Spins Bonus feature. On offer here are 10, 12 or 14 free spins.

Land a win that’s made up of standard symbols that also includes a wild and the payout is trebled. Re-triggers are possible here too – you can play with up to 150 free spins altogether with multiple retriggers.

 5,250 x bet wins

With its lush visuals and Arabian backing track, the Cleopatra Gold slot is very easy on the senses. The gameplay didn’t quite reach the visual heights but the respins, free spins and multipliers are still a decent combination. This isn’t the most volatile slot you’ll play either.

The variance here is in the medium range. Filling the reels with wild symbols will give you a 1,750 x bet win – in the Free Spins Bonus feature, the trebling wild multiplier would result in 5,250 x bet heading your way.

If you look at Cleopatra Gold vs the original Cleopatra slot game, it looks better – however, the wild is worth less in this version with the max win being 10,000 x bet per spin in the land-based favourite. Overall then, not a classic. It’s still very playable though and one to consider if you’ve enjoyed the other slots in IGT’s Cleopatra series.
