Theme, Design & Symbols
With an obvious ancient Egyptian theme, the Legend of Cleopatra Megaways slot is based around the most famous Egyptian woman, Cleopatra, who was the very last active ruler of ancient Egypt. This is the sequel to the Legend of Cleopatra from the same developers that they released in February 2018. The design is full of imagery that is expertly executed and the visuals of this Megaways version are vibrant, colourful, and sharp and make for a stunning visual representation.
The slot has a superb backdrop created amidst a night-time scene in the desert with pyramids, and palm trees. The reels are constructed from sandstone, and the symbols that you can expect to come across the usual playing cards from 9 through to Ace as well as heads of the Egyptian animal Gods, Bastet, Horus, and Anubis. Unsurprisingly the most rewarding symbol is Cleopatra wearing the most stunning gold headdress and she will pay you 2x, 4x, 7.5x, 20x or 40x your stake if you land 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in a combination.
The gold wild symbol can substitute for all the other symbols to create winning combinations, but it is worth noting that the wild can only make an appearance on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels.
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways can be played on all devices including phones, tablets, desktop, and laptop computers. The Megaways mechanic runs like a well-oiled machine even when playing on the smallest of screens and will provide you with an excellent gaming experience.
Game Play & Statistics
As stated above this slot plays out over 6-reels and the number of ways to win starts from 324 and goes up to a huge 200,704 on each spin. Thanks to the Megaways mechanic the number of symbols on your reels will vary with every spin. The more symbols you land on the reel the more active the Megaways will be. If all your reels are at the minimum size, there is 324 ways and if you find that you land a full complement of symbols this rises to a huge 200,704. You need to land three or more of the same symbols on adjacent reels from left to right starting with your 1st reel.
When it comes to placing your bets, the minimum starts from just 20p per spin to a maximum of £100 per spin, which is a great bet range that is sure to appeal to a wide array of players both old and new. There is also an auto play functions and turbo spin mode should you wish to use them.
The return to player on offer in the Legend of Cleopatra Megaways is slightly below average standing at just 95.84% and the hit frequency stands at 30.46% so you can expect to land a win combination on average in just under a third of spins. This slot will appeal to the players that enjoys high variance gameplay. The maximum win works out to 6,584x your stake per spin.
There are several classic elements that made Megaways so popular in this slot the Legend of Cleopatra Megaways. The game engine offers a potential of over 200,000 ways to win and there are also ample opportunities to create wins particularly when you consider the collapsing reels, and scarab multipliers as well as the free spins with expanding multipliers. Every time you land a winning combination, the collapsing symbols feature becomes active. The winning symbols are detonated and disappear from the reels and are then replaced with new ones. If these then form a winning combination the entire process repeats, and the collapsing continue until there are no more winning combinations displayed.
There is an additional symbol above your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels and it is on this Top Bonus Row that the Scarab Badges appear with each symbol capable of holding three Scarab Badges. If you land a collapse on Scarab Badge this then activates the Scarab Multiplier feature with each additional badge increases the multiplier by 1, the multiplier then resets to 1x at the beginning of every spin.
Next up is the Free Spins Bonus feature, to activate this feature you need to collapse all the symbols on the top row above the reels and doing so will see you rewarded with 12 free spins. The Scarab Multiplier from the activating spin then carries over to the base game. There is an added option to buy into the free spins and for 100x your stake you will have 12 free spins to play with.
The Scarab Multiplier value will only increase throughout the feature, and if you clear the Top Row Bonus you will have an additional five free spins added onto your total with no limit to how many can be added.
Although there is nothing in this slot that you will not have already come across in other slots the difference with the Legend of Cleopatra Megaways slot is that it is solid and for the first Megaways Playson have done a really good job with it being great that they did not go with a 117,649 Megaways game. The design is appealing with crisp and clear visuals, but I warn you that this is an extremely volatile slot that delivers some fiery game play. Design wise, it is clear and appealing. The Scarab Multipliers are the key to the bigger wins, and these come with the multipliers that increase during the free spins feature.
I enjoyed the original Legend of Cleopatra, and therefore I found this slot such great entertainment. Even though this slot has a great deal to offer players if you are not a fan of this theme and or genre it may not be the slot for you. The slot would rate as a 8/10 and I highly recommend that players give this a spin or two.
