As you probably know one of the reasons why Reel King has been such a hit with UK slots fans is its appearance as a cabinet game on the club and casino circuit. Another machine that’s heavily featured on gaming room floors over the last decade is the mighty Cleopatra.
This game, which was created by Las Vegas gaming legends IGT, is one of the most popular slots of all time and is right up there with Reel King when it comes to weekly plays.
It only seems right that we should include this epic title on our fan site – after all, it is another slot machine monarch, as Cleopatra was the last true queen of Old Egypt.
Visuals and Sound Effects
Cleopatra is one good looking slot machine – from the ornate grid background to the golden symbols on the reels, everything about this game oozes opulence and class. The animations are smooth and seamless, bringing your wins to life as you stop in those all important winning combinations, but what really stands out about Cleopatra is the sound.
Throughout your session, Cleopatra herself will whisper seductively at you, narrating the action and adding a vital level of excitement to every spin. This is backed up by some classic Egyptian styled sound effects that perfectly set the scene.
Reel Game Lowdown
The base game in Cleopatra uses a 20 pay-line, five reel structure that should be familiar to all players of casino slot machines. You can adjust your coin size as well as the number of lines on which you’re playing in order to make your own bespoke bet. There are two special symbols in Cleopatra that will help you on your winning ways – the first of these is the bonus scatter. The second is the famous Cleopatra wild.
This not only substitutes for all other symbols in the game, barring the bonus game scatter, but also doubles the value of any combination it helps complete.
Free Spin Fun
Stop in three or more of the special sphinx scatters anywhere in view on the reels to activate the legendary Cleopatra bonus round. This is a classic free spin feature that can pay out some massive prizes. The more scatters you stop in, the more free spins you’ll collect, but that’s not all – for the duration of this round all your prizes are trebled.
This means that if you’re lucky enough to hit a big combination that includes the Cleopatra wild symbol then you’ll be looking at a 6x multiplier on your prize. You can even re-trigger the bonus by stopping in three or more sphinx scatters, adding to your spin total, up to a maximum of over 250 spins. If you want the big money, then this is where you’ll find it on this slot machine.
Queen of the Slots
Cleopatra is one classy game. It’s got the right balance of reel and bonus feature action to keep you pinned to the grid for some non stop fun. This machine absolutely spits the wins out at you and in many ways is a worthy rival to reel king.
We’ve had a lot of fun over the years playing this game and we believe that you can too.
