The Queen has returned – and she’s looking better than ever! The original Cleopatra™ Slots is one of the most popular slots. While the gameplay has stuck with the same winning formula as the original, the graphics have been given a comprehensive makeover, and the new version is one of the most visually appealing online slots to date.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of playing the original Cleopatra™ Slots, here’s the lowdown. It’s a multi-line slot, with the option to bet between 1p and £1 on up to 20 paylines, with a maximum stake of £20. Get five Cleopatra™ symbols on a winning line, and you will be rewarded with a cash prize worth 10,000 times your stake for that line.
The more you stake per line, the more you stand to win. So, if you bet 1p per line and you landed five Cleopatras on one of the paylines, that would net you a cool £100, and if you had bet the maximum of £1 per line, that same combination would bring in a whopping £10,000! However, with more paylines you choose to bet on, the more chances you have to win, so unless you are betting the maximum, you have to decide whether you want to increase your chances of winning with more paylines, or increase your potential winnings by upping the stakes.
One of the most important symbols to look out for is the Flaming Sphinx. Just two of these onscreen at once will award a scatter pay, and if you get three or more, you’ll be taken to the Cleopatra™ Bonus Round. At the very least, this round will give you 15 free spins, and perhaps many more, and all winning combinations will pay out three times more than usual. The exception to this is the five Cleopatra™ symbol payout, which remains the same in the free spins round, but only the most curmudgeonly player would complain about the fact that their 10,000x bonus wasn’t being tripled!
The Cleopatra™ symbols also serve as Wild symbols, so they can be used to complete any winning combination. And, if you use them to complete any combination during the bonus round, it doubles the award (which is already tripled for the round) to give you a bonus of six times the normal amount.
Slots games based around the theme of Ancient Egypt are not exactly thin on the ground, so a game of this type really has to stand out to get noticed. With a combination of fast-paced gameplay, great features, and lots of ways to win, the new Cleopatra™ Slots is truly a worthy heir to its all-conquering predecessor.
