Many of Novomatic’s recent release have boasted quite sophisticated design. There’s a more old school feel to Beauty of Cleopatra. The interior of a palace is the setting here with the reels watched over by a pair of guards. On the reels you’ll find A to 9 royals as well as a ring and gemstone, a ship and members of the royal court. This pair of characters each award 0.2, 2, 8 or 40 times your total stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline starting from reel 1.
Queen Cleopatra is the game’s wild. She replaces all the standard symbols. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of her in combination and you’ll receive a payout of 1, 5 or 40 times your stake. What you’re really hoping to see is 5 wilds across a payline o as this triggers the progressive jackpot prize and a potentially massive score.
The other extra on offer in Beauty of Cleopatra is the Bonus feature. It’s triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the Sphinx style scatters anywhere on the reels on the same spin. After a payout equal to 5, 25 or 100 times your stake, you’ll then go on to play 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 or 20 free spins.
Boosting your winning chances here is a multiplier which boosts all awards by 5x. Re-triggers are possible here too if you manage to land 3 or more scatters on the same free spin – there are no limits to how many more free spins you can play with.
This is a classic Novomatic slot game. The design isn’t the flashiest you’ll see but does the job well enough. The gameplay is very straightforward. It can pack a big punch too as the variance is high.
You’ll have spells more arid than the Sahara. If the 5x multiplier works its magic in the free spins though, Beauty of Cleopatra could deliver awards fit for a queen – up to 2,000 times your stake per free spin. The biggest win available is from the progressive jackpot naturally. If you want a trip to ancient Egypt with big potential wins, Pyramidion by IGT would be my suggestion.
