Introducing Cleopatra Gold slot
Cleopatra Gold has been developed for us by IGT as a brand-new slot machine for the Ancient Egyptian market, turning away from the dark theme of mummies, which is usually the go-to when it comes to Egyptian themed slot. Step into the world of Cleopatra and enjoy the potential wins she brings.
The slot comes complete 20 pay lines which is spread across 5 reels and 3 rows, offering the player plenty of chances to win big in this intriguing slot. There are plenty of elements for player to enjoy, with many features, wild multipliers and free games, which all have the chance of being won at triple the usual rate!
Coming from the Us-based, world-renowned slot developer IGT, we can see the similarities with slots that they have previously released. With symbols and a design that is seen as a proven formula, IGT is sensible not to change up what they know works, however it does present the same monotonous gaming experience, which some may see as a turn off.
Betting range and RTP
This slot offers the player 20 active pay lines, as well as the biggest betting range we have seen in recent times: starting as low as $0.60 and increasing up to a maximum of $1,800 per spin, it is safe to say that this slot has enough of a range for anyone, whether they be beginner or hardcore spinners. There is something for everyone.
There is the potential of winning up to 1,750 times the stake on a single spin, giving the highest betters the chance of winning $3,150,000, which is something we rarely see with these stunning slots. Beware though, as some casinos will cap this slot, meaning you cannot get the highest wins! It’s definitely worth a check before you play.
The RTP of this slot is between 93% and 95.97%, which we cannot say is very impressive. With most modern-day slots sitting at 96% or more, this slot is a little bit of a disappointment in that regard and with only a medium volatility, there is not much excitement for the player.
Egyptian symbols to play with
This Ancient Egyptian themed slot is perfect for history lovers and slot lovers alike. Seemingly lifted from some of the land-based machines that the IGT developers’ games, and some success has been had with this. We can’t say it’s our favourite release of the year so far, with a common story and pretty basic graphics, not unique in anyway.
Either way, we will explain the symbols to you now! Cleopatra works as the highest paying symbol, worth x100, x650 and x1250 for three, four or five of the symbols. There are also symbols such as Fans, Beetles, Gold Ingot, Eye of Ra and Staffs, as well as the golden royals: A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
The royals are the lowest paying symbols of the slots with the 9, 10, J, and Q pay out x5, x25 or x100 for three, four or five on a pay line. The K royal is worth x5, x50 and x100, while the A is worth x10, x50 and x125 for three, four or five respectively.
The Eye of Ra and Staff offer the player x10, x50 and x150, while gold ingots pay out x15, x25 or x200 respectively for three, four or five matching symbols. The Fans and Beetles pay out x25, x75 and x300 for three, four or five symbols matched on a pay line.
The creepy image of the sphinx is seem as the scatter symbol. Landing this on the reels in 2, 3, 4 or 5 places will rewards the player 2x, 5x, 10x or 20x the bet.
Free Spins and more
Moving on from the symbols, we can see that there is a plethora of features for the player to enjoy in this interesting slot.
The wild can be split into three types, each one with the Cleopatra logo, but each with different detailing. There is one with her piecing eyes, another with a bright blue background and another with the chosen colour of gold. A mix of any of the three wilds would then result in the game’s highest paying prize of 1,750 times the stake being played with!
If these wilds become part of the new winning combinations then the player’s winnings will either be doubled, during the paid spins, or tripled during the free spins!
The blue Cleopatra wild can, at any point, be transformed from itself into the golden version, and with the nudges feature, where the symbol is nudged to the furthest right position, can end up filling the positions on the reels; it can also become activated if you get stacked wilds on a single go.
The Gold Spins feature gives the player a free respin, which is performed in a brand-new reel window, where the player can actually get up to a total of three-reel windows.
The final option of the slot is the scatter: the Pharaoh. This activates 10 free spins when three or more land on the reels at one time. Any new scatters will add a total of 2 free spins each time!
Concluding this slot
Whether the Egyptian theme is something you enjoy and choose to seek out, or you’re not bothered at the history of your slot, this one will work for you. There is chances to win with this slot, and while it’s not as easy compared to some of the other slots, we like the potential win of $3,150,000!
The story isn’t the most exciting, and while the features give us something to enjoy, there is plenty of other slots that add that extra charisma for the player to enjoy. Book of Ra, developed by Novoline, is one such slot that offers the same theme, but plenty more adventure for the player.
