The graphics may not be as all singing and dancing as some of the most modern slots, but they do transport you instantly into the world of Ancient Egypt – so much so, you might want to pack some sun cream.
Gods and Gold
The gods must be displeased with Cleopatra (or scared of her) as they’re not making themselves easy to find. However, there are plenty of numbered and lettered symbols knocking about which may offer some clues – and 3-5 matching symbols gets you up to 125 times your total bet.
Finding the gods is a lucrative business though and finding Horus, Baslet or Anubis can get you up to 500 times your total bet. Typically, once you’ve found them, you might also find that Cleopatra has gone missing – but when you find her you can win up to 10,000 times your total bet. Just watch out for her famous asp as, though I’ve not encountered it yet, it could be lurking somewhere.
Cleopatra also likes to go Wild at times and just one Wild Symbol will trigger the Wild Bonus during which Cleopatra will substitute for all other symbols to create winning combinations – all of which are paid out at double the usual rate.
Also watch out for the Sphinx Symbols as these trigger the best bonus of all. Three Sphinx trigger 5-15 free games, whilst four Sphinx trigger 8-18 free games, get five Sphinx symbols and you’ll get 10-20 free spins. Each spins you use the multiplier increases by 1. So on your 20th spin your wins will be multiplied by 20x! This feature can retrigger, but only up to a maximum of 50 free spins with a x50 multiplier.
Egyptian gods may well be higher powers, but you can apply as much power to your staking system as you see fit. High-rollers can play a maximum bet of 100 coins a spin (20 lines x 5 coins), whilst new slot players or small stakes players can play a minimum bet of 1 coins a spin (1 line x 1 coin). Other line options include 5, 10 and 15, whilst you can also stake 2, 3 or 4 coins per line.
