As you might expect from a slot with this theme, there’s a blingy feel to the design in Cleopatra Diamond Spins. With blue walls covered in hieroglyphs in the background, you’ll see gold royal symbols on the reels as well more rewarding hieroglyphs including the Eye of Ra and the Scarab Beetle. It’s dripping in gold and luxury.
2x Cleopatra wilds
Cleopatra is the game’s wild. She replaces all the standard symbols. If a wild forms part of a winning combination, the payout receives a 2x multiplier boost and is doubled. 5 Cleopatra wilds on a payline will reward you with 500 times your stake.
Free spins with even bigger multipliers
The Cleopatra Bonus feature is triggered by landing 3 or more of the gold burial mask scatter symbol on the same spin. Your reward is 15 free spins. Any winning combination that hits during the free spins round benefits from a minimum 3x multiplier boost. Hope to land a winner that includes a Cleopatra wild as the 3x multiplier is doubled to send the payout rocketing by 6x. You can retrigger the feature quite a few times giving you a maximum of 180 free spins.
Diamond Spins jackpots
On any spin you could see an overlay diamond appear. Land 5 or more of these overlay diamonds on the same spin and you’ll activate the Diamond Spins Bonus feature. The triggering diamonds are held and 3 respins are awarded. If a diamond lands, the number of respins resets to 3. You can also land the Mini and Maxi Bonus which are worth 15 and 25 times your stake (respectively).
Diamonds can come with multiplier values attached. At the end of the respins, these are added together to create your payout. Hope to see 3 purple or 3 blue diamonds as these award the Minor or Major Jackpot (worth at least £250 and £1,000 respectively. Fill the whole grid with diamonds and you’ll land the Grand Jackpot which starts at £20,000.
Low to Medium variance
IGT’s original Cleopatra slot has proved extremely popular with slots players in live and online casinos. They’ve kept things pretty similar in this new jackpot version. The design and gameplay are rather simple but now with the added prospect of jackpot prizes.
It’s not a volatile slot (the variance is in the low to medium range) but Diamond Spins Cleopatra can pay up to 10,000 times your stake if you fill the reels with wilds. Add in the jackpot element and it becomes a very playable take on this classic theme.
