We bring you a slot based on the legend that is Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile and the riches she hoarded. IGT have developed the Mega Jackpots Cleopatra slot, which offers a combination of bold, bright colours and a great bonus spins feature. Let’s not forget the progressive jackpot that is available, so let’s get playing and see if we can’t steal away some of Queen Cleo’s riches.
Mega Jackpots Cleopatra is a 5-reel, 20 fixed pay line slot that offers players a 93% RTP. It is set out as if inside one of the great halls of Cleopatras palace. The reels are surrounded in gold and hieroglyphs, and the progressive jackpot can be seen building away in the top right corner.
Symbols are a great mix of Egyptian themed icons, and your card symbols have also been given a bit of an overhaul too. Higher value symbols are a scarab beetle, a bunch of feathers, a gold carving, a set of crossed canes and the eye of Horus. Lower value symbols are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, with each one drawn to look intricate, gem encrusted and golden; just how Cleopatra would have liked them. You will even hear the queen herself speaking as the reels spin, wishing you good fortune. But there isn’t much else by way of music aside from a few other added sound effects.
Bet Amounts – Betting on Mega Jackpots Cleopatra begins at £20 per spin and can be adjusted up to the highest value of £1000 per spin! To adjust the bet you only need to amend the bet per line, which you will find to the left of the spin button. Use the symbols on either side to increase or decrease the total bet until you are happy with your choice.
Wild Symbol – The Mega jackpot symbol is your wild in this game and when it forms part of a win it will transform into Cleopatras face. It is the highest paying symbol in the game and will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter.
Scatter Symbol – A sphinx head is your scatter symbol on Mega Jackpots Cleopatra and landing three or more of these anywhere on the reels will trigger the bonus spins. Scatter wins are also in play here, with an extra win being awarded on top of any line wins for landing just 2 or more scatters on a pay line.
- 2 scatters will award x2 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 3 scatters will award x5 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 4 scatters will award x20 your bet amount as an extra win,
- 5 scatters will award x100 your bet amount as an extra win.
Mega Jackpot Feature – To win the progressive jackpot on Mega Jackpots Cleopatra which is always building as you play, you need to do just one thing. That is to land 5 mega jackpot symbols on the centre position of each reel. This can be done in the base game or in the bonus spins, which gives you an extra chance of winning the jackpot.
Bonus Spins Feature – Once you have landed three or more of the sphinx scatter symbol you will enter the bonus spins feature. You will be allocated with 15 spins to play through with all wins awarded a x5 multiplier, except the mega jackpots symbol! Bonus spins can be retriggered from within the round as well, giving you the chance to extend your bonus round.
Mega Jackpots Cleopatra isn’t one of the more complex slots around which offers a progressive jackpot. It does however have a great bonus spins round and the chance to win the jackpot in that bonus spins round too. Normally you would only be able to win the jackpot via the main game, so IGT have done players a huge favour with that addition to the slot design.
After playing through the game we feel that it was a bit anti climatic and found ourselves getting bored. In a bid to gain the jackpot you could easily burn through your balance, especially as the lowest bet amount is £20! Overall we found Mega Jackpots Cleopatra to be an ok game to play short term with the view to getting into the bonus spins. But if it’s the progressive jackpot you are wanting, then expect to be betting high and spinning for some time. This is because even with the elusive second chance feature you will not be getting those 5 jackpot symbols any time soon.
