Game in Action
Cleopatra is a game that I have played a lot in the past, which is why I thought it would be a good idea to review the slot. First things first - the theme is great, although the soundtrack is absolutely horrific. The graphics are nice, but they aren’t the highest quality ones that I have seen. But these things make a really small part of the experience.
The more interesting stuff comes with the spins, payouts, and bonuses. The first thing is that the free spins, when you finally get to them, give you ridiculous winnings. It took me 60 spins to get to the Scatter bonus, but I managed to retrigger the free spins 40 times, which was an amazing addition considering I just won my bet back with a 5x multiplier due to the Scatter Awards.
The Scatter Awards are also something that need to be brought up. It is an amazing feature, since it gives the feeling of hunting for a jackpot, without the game actually having a jackpot. Everything in the game just feels to work so great, which must be the reason people are so keen to this particular slot.
Cleopatra features three bonuses:
- Wild symbols are the most common bonus that you can find in modern slots. It is a symbol that is found on every reel, and it can substitute for any other symbol in the game, except for Scatter symbols.
- Scatter bonus is also fairly known, although it is not as popular as Wild symbols are. This bonus can be activated by getting more than three Scatter symbols during one round, which will trigger 15 free spins. During these rounds you can retrigger the bonus up to 180 free spins, and you will get a 3x multiplier to all winnings, except for Scatter winnings.
- Scatter Awards aren’t really a bonus, but they are more of a symbol combination that will award ridiculous amounts of money. The principle is simple. The more Scatter symbols you get, the more you win. And the catch here is that if you get five symbols, not only will you be awarded the free spins, but you will also get your bet back with a 100x multiplier!

Cleopatra is a 5 reel modern slot, in the sense that it has more than 3. It does have some neat features, new bonuses, interesting theme, and an RTP of 95.0%, but besides those it is a rather average slot. They have tried to spice it up a bit with, but seems to have fallen short of their goal. Note that this slot is a bit dated now anyways so there should be decent alternatives out there. It is a great game for beginners though, since it teaches players really well how some basic features work.
