Cleopatra is one of the most famous figures in history, so it’s little surprise to know that there have been many pokies based around the Egyptian ruler. This poker machine from RealTime Gaming features Cleopatra alongside a number of Egyptian symbols such as the Eye of Horus, a jewel encrusted Scarab beetle, a sphinx and an Ankh. The lady herself acts as both the highest paying symbol in the game and the wild, while also offering a boost any time you win.
Cleopatra’s Gold is an enjoyable game where multipliers take centre stage. Here are the standout features:
The scatter symbol features a pyramid in the middle of the desert at night, with the moon shining bright in the sky. This pyramid pays immediate wins of 2x, 5x, 20x and 500x your total stake when appearing 2, 3, 4 or 5 times anywhere on the reels (that top prize equating to a 10,000-coin win if you are playing all 20 lines).
Hitting 3 or more of the pyramid scatters also enters you into the free spins bonus feature. This feature plays out in much the same way as the base game, although there is one huge difference. Any time you achieve a win, the prize amount is trebled. For example, if you were to hit five scarab beetles in a row in the base game, it would pay 1,000 coins, but do it in the feature and you’re looking at a 3,000-coin award.
More good news is the fact that the free spins can be retriggered at any time. Hit three or more scatters and 15 more spins will be added to your existing total, while you’ll also be paid the immediate scatter win once more.
Cleopatra plays an important role throughout the game. If you’re lucky enough to land five wild Cleopatra’s in a row you’re looking at a 10,000 coin win, while even four in a row pays 2,500 coins (still two and a half times more than the top pay out for any standard symbol).
As the wild, Cleopatra will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. All wins which include Cleopatra as the wild will be doubled. Things can get very interesting during the free spins feature, as those doubled wins will then be further multiplied by 3. If you land the scarab beetle win listed above with a wild in the mix (during the free spins), the original prize of 1,000 coins is now transformed into an incredible 6,000-coin win.
Cleopatra’s Gold is a five-reel pokie featuring 20 win-lines. Those 20 lines are set as the default amount, while players have the option to play any number up to 20. The pay table shows all of the symbol wins, alongside the doubled amounts when Cleopatra is involved. Both the scarab beetles have top prizes of 1,000 coins (doubled to 2,000 when a wild win), while the sphinx and the ankh each pay a top prize of 300 coins. At the low end of the pay table you’ll find the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
You can be awarded the random progressive Jackpot after any spin, with your chances the greater, the higher stakes you play for. You’ll see the current amounts displayed above the reels.
The backdrop to this RealTime Gaming pokie shows the desert on a beautiful, blue sky day. The colour of sand frames the reels, while ancient scrolls form the reels themselves. On the reels are a series of classic ancient Egyptian symbols, while the playing card symbols adds a colourful sheen to the game and a hint of modernity. The standout symbols are the colourful patterned scarab beetle and Cleopatra herself, whose hair braids sway in the breeze whenever you land a win.
Will Cleopatra’s Gold Ensure your Fortune?
Cleopatra’s Gold is an enjoyable and fast paced game with a focus on boosting those all-important wins. Land the lead character five times in a row and you’ll win an eye-catching five figure win, while any time she substitutes in, wins are multiplied by 2. Enter the free spins feature and the combination of 15 spins and a 3x multiplier is sure to pay big.
