For this slot we travel to the queen of ancient Egypt; Cleopatra. This slot game is in the style of an Egyptian treasure chamber full of gold and hieroglyphs. The various symbols on the reels fit well with this, we see the famous scarab, an eye hieroglyph and crossed staffs. Once we start the game we hear Cleopatra: My fortunes are yours .. that’s a good start. There are certainly much fortunes to give away, the jackpot stand right now (Nov 30 ’15 1:48 p.m.) is at £572.373! And this prize is increasing because its a progressive jackpot. Once you turned 5 MegaJackpots symbols in the center payline you take the huge jackpot prize!
Options and paylines
While we were clicking through the different menu options the sound reminded us a bit of the classic game Prince of Persia. We also noticed that there is a choice to set the graphical quality of this slot. Very useful if you play with an older device, or maybe you do not have access to a fast internet connection. For most slots, you often have the ability to set the number of lines you want to bet. With Cleopatra Mega Jackpots you can only play 20 paylines. When you always bet on 20 lines you have much more chance at 3 or more identical symbols. A disadvantage however is that this slot is not suitable when you want to bet smaller amounts. The minimum bet is in fact 20 Pounds, you can increase this even further up to 2000 Pound per spin. The odds of winning the jackpot increases with higher betting amounts.
Mega Jackpots Scatter symbol and the Sphinx
Now we’ve gone through the options, we start with a few spins in practice mode. We almost immediately spin the MegaJackpots symbol, we hear: Very pleasurable. Yeah that’s for sure, when you spin one or more MegaJackpots symbols this doubles your winnings. That’s because this symbol is a Wild symbol. This symbol substitutes for any other symbol that you need at that moment to win a prize. Only with the exception of the Sphinx symbol.
The Sphinx Scatter is also a very nice symbol to spin, at least if you have 3 or more. You’ll get the Cleopatra Bonus, that includes 15 free spins! And if that’s not enough, gains you achieved in this round are also tripled. Except of course the progressive jackpot amount. It is not necessary to spin the Sphinx Scatter symbols on a single line, they can be displayed randomly. The Cleopatra Bonus can also be activated again when you are already in the bonus round, but up to a limit of 180x.
This gigantic prize is of course not the only amount that you can win, there are several other prizes ranging from 10 up to 10.000 times your bet. Because this slot has a progressive jackpot the return to player value is somewhat less favorable than other slots. Cleopatra has an RTP of 93.03%, while other slots fluctuate at around 95 to 97%. There is slightly less refunded to the player so that the jackpot can increase it’s value.
