Who does not love a video slot game fashioned after ancient Egypt? There is always an air of expectation when a game themed after ancient civilisations are played. Cleopatra Slot by IGT is no different. The story of the flamboyant queen of Egypt is as intriguing as the online slot. The queen who is believed to have lived from 69BC to 30BC is famed for her love affair with the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and then Mark Anthony (after Caesar’s assassination).
Her love affair with Julius Caesar resulted in the birth of his son which Cleopatra had hoped will strengthen her power over Egypt and Ceasar. Unfortunately, with Julius Caesar’s death, her reign as Pharaoh seemed destined to end. She then pitched the tent (literally) with the Roman General and politician, Mark Anthony. Sadly though Mark Anthony could not save her title as Pharaoh from being relinquished. This Shakespearean tale ends with both Mark Anthony and Cleopatra committing ritualised suicide. Cleopatra was the last pharaoh of ancient Egypt which makes her story and Cleopatra Slot all the more fascinating.
Cleopatra Slot Graphics, Animation And Sound
Cleopatra Slot has a lot going for it in terms of its graphics, animation and sound. The visual display as expected mainly depicts ancient Egypt in all its glory. The background illustrates this fact and shows elements of a time when gods were kings and kings were gods. The backdrop of this video slot is an ancient Egyptian styled temple with displays of luxury and wealth.
There are two ornate columns which are presumed to hold up the roof of the temple. These columns lie on either side of the 5x3 reel set which is set against the temple background. On the columns are lots of hieroglyphics, ancient Egyptian writing which further adds to the overall theme of the online casino gambling game. The graphics and animation quality of this slot is impressive. What is equally impressive is the soundtrack of the slot which complements the game really well.
Classic Low And Theme-related High Symbols
With this video slot, you have the classic playing card low-value symbols of A, Q, K, J, 9 and 10. What is different about these playing cards is the way they look. Instead of the regular card look, these playing cards are adorned with Egyptian styled decoration to give them a unique and exotic appearance.
On the other hand, the high-value symbols of Cleopatra Slot are all theme-related symbols. You have items associated with ancient Egypt which includes an Ankh, a Scarab Beetle and the Eye of Horus. These symbols offer higher rewards than the playing card icons when players land combination wins involving them.
Cleopatra Wild And Sphinx Scatter Symbols
In Cleopatra Slot, you have both a Wild and a Scatter symbol. The Scatter symbol is represented by a Sphinx (an ancient Egyptian monument depicted by the head of a man and the body of a lion). The Sphinx Scatter symbol is responsible for activating the game's Free Spins feature (more on this later).
Queen Cleopatra herself represents the game's Wild symbol and this symbol will replace other symbols on the 5x3 reel set apart from the Sphinx Scatter. When the Cleopatra Wild replaces other symbols on the reels it will help in landing wild assisted combination wins which will boost the payouts of players.
The Wild symbol is the most valuable of all the symbols in this video slot. However, whenever you are able to land five Sphinx Scatter symbols on a payline, you will earn a 100x stake multiplier for your troubles.
Cleopatra Slot Free Spins Bonus Feature
The Free Spins bonus feature of Cleopatra Slot is activated whenever a minimum of 3 Sphinx Scatter symbols are landed on any position on the reels. As you activate the free spins bonus feature with 3 Sphinx Scatters, you will earn 15 free spins.
During the free spins round, you will be rewarded with a 3x multiplier for combo wins. This bonus feature can be reactivated when you land another 3 Sphinx Scatter symbols during a free spins round. The limit of free spins you can be rewarded in this slot is 180.
Progressive Mega Jackpots
Land at least 5 Mega Jackpots on the central payline during either the free spins round or base game to earn megabucks. Players of Cleopatra Slot are also lucky as a spin that does not result in a win can activate a “Second Chance”. The “Second Chance” gives players an opportunity to earn the megabucks promised by the Progressive Mega Jackpots.
To Sum Up
There are lots of reasons to get excited about the Cleopatra Slot. For starters, the overall graphics, animation and sound effects are worth checking out. Secondly, the 180 possible free spins are something no slot player should miss out on and the Progressive Mega Jackpots further adds to your earning potential from this video slot.
