Cleopatra is an old one but it's definitely still a good one thanks largely to its big jackpots and impressive bonus feature. The Cleopatra Bonus feature is triggered by the Sphinx scatter symbol. Find 2 of them anywhere on the reels and your total bet will be doubled. Three will multiply your total bet by 5. Expect a 20x multiplier for four scatters and a massive 100 times your total bet if you find 5.
3 or more scatters will also give you 15 free spins - all spins during the Cleopatra Bonus are subject to a 3x multiplier with all winning paylines trebled. It's possible to re-trigger the free spins up to a maximum of 180 times (15 free spins at a time) so keep your fingers crossed for those scatters.
The reels in Cleopatra are filled with classic ancient Egyptian imagery. Look out for a selection of hieroglyphs including the scarab beetle and the eye of Horus. Cleopatra herself acts as the game's wild and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Sphinx scatter. Any successful payline in which the Cleopatra wild appears will be doubled. If you're lucky enough to find 5 in a payline you can look forward to a massive 10,000 coin jackpot payout.
The graphics in Cleopatra aren't quite as blingy as some similarly themed slots on the market. They're perfectly serviceable though, as is the soundtrack which offers a real flavour of Arabia.
The ancient Egyptian theme is a popular one for online slots developers. Even though it's a something of a veteran in online slot terms, Cleopatra still remains a firm favourite, and for good reason. The free spins hit on a fairly regular basis and with the 3x multiplier the wins can soon start to fly. Cleopatra is one queen slots fans will be happy to pay homage – it’s also the most played slot game of all time in land based casinos. If you like Ancient Egyptian-themed slots, Pharaoh’s Fortune and Cleopatra II (also by IGT) are well worth playing.
