Go back in time to the land of the ancients in Legend of Cleopatra. Created by Playson, this unusual 6 reel, 100 payline video slot comes with wild reels that can duplicate as well as a feature round that awards up to 30 free spins. Play on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.
The design in Legend of Cleopatra is as good as you’ll see anywhere. The reels are set up like a pyramid that’s been turned on its side and spin in a 2x3x3x4x5x5 formation in the base game. A luxurious bathing chamber forms the backdrop to those reels.
There you’ll find the usual selection of A to 10 symbols alongside the animal gods Ra, Bastet and Anubis. They’re joined by Cleopatra herself and the Legend of Cleopatra logo, both of which offer awards of up to 3.75 times your total stake per payline. Helping to create those winning combinations is the wild which can land on all 6 reels and pay up to 5 times your bet. There are 2 extras on offer in Legend of Cleopatra.
Double Wild Reel feature – you’ll notice that the reel that is 4 symbols high is edged in gold. Land a full stack of wilds in this golden reel and another reel will turn totally wild too. A payout is then made with the 2 wild reels in play. The Double Wild Reels feature can hit in both the base game and the free spins.
Free Spins feature – to trigger those free spins, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the scarab beetle scatter which can hit on reels 2-6 only. You’ll then be awarded 5, 10 or 15 free spins. The reels flip for the duration of the free spins so reels 1 and 2 are 5 rows high and reel 5 has just 2 rows. You can also retrigger the feature giving you up to 30 free spins in total.
The set up here is certainly unusual. The game plays simply enough though. The likeliest way to land a bumper haul of treasure come via the Free Spins feature. If you manage to trigger the Double Wild Reel feature then transform 1 of the 5 row reels, some big results are certainly possible.
With so many ancient Egyptian video slots doing the rounds, offering something fresh is tricky. The A grade design and unorthodox game engine in Legend of Cleopatra offer just that. If you fancy a novel take on a classic theme then Legend of Cleopatra is worth a spin. I also recommend you try Zeus III from WMS which uses a similar reel layout.
