Cleopatra II Slot Machine
If you are a slots fan and have never played any of the IGT Cleopatra games – then you are missing out on a significant rite of passage for connoisseurs of the game. This brand has been around since the days of mechanical slots, and the latest online version based on one of history’s most iconic females– Cleopatra II brings the franchise further up to date.
These games are the old school of simple, high variance and huge pay-out machines. There is only one feature (a free spins round), so you should expect to be gambling in the pure sense of the word here. You are swapping out the entertainment value of the fancy video slots for the chance of a gigantic win.
Even though you can tell that the symbols have been redesigned using more modern tools, they still manage to look a little too crowded on the reels for me. Maybe it is a sizing issue; it just takes that much more focus to be able to work out whether you are seeing a winning combination forming. Individually, the symbols are distinct. The colouring and layout make them look very similar when you place them together.
Sounds are new too, though really should remind you of the original Cleopatra video slot. Cleo will speak to you about sharing her wealth, and you’ll get a standard Egyptian sound track in the background. Once again, good, though nothing fancy.
It is the free spins round where this slot comes into its own. There is a simple pick-em game to start. Once you start spinning your win multiplier goes up each time, starting at 1x and going all the way to 50x if you are lucky enough to get retriggers. This is where the truly big wins will come from.
