Cleopatra is a slot machine produced by the IGT company. Along with other hits like Buffalo and Geisha, Cleopatra is one of the all time favorites among slot enthusiasts. This slot is known for its particularly high risk, high reward nature. You will be very let down when Miss. Cleo delivers you just a few (or zero!) credits, but she is known to pay off very well from time to time as well. This game is certainly not for the faint of heart, as you will need a lot of courage, barring a lucky early bonus round.
Cleopatra is a 9 line game with many, many different unique symbols. There are a handful of aces, 10s, and so on that will be in the playing field, but so too will hieroglyphics and other symbols from the time of the Egyptians. The unique symbols are the ones that will really pay off well, like the gold bar. In Cleopatra, the Cleopatra symbol itself is the holy grail as it represents a wild symbol. If you can line up a full row of Cleopatras, you will most definitely be in for a big pay day, provided that you were playing all of the lines available.
As is just about always the case with slots, we recommend playing the max lines, though you will still be able to adjust the credit bet size to match your own bankroll.
The reason that Cleopatra is so high risk is because of the difficulty in landing a bonus round. In order to start a bonus, you will need to have three Sphinx symbols. These are easy to identify as they are bright red and make a “boing!” symbol each time one lands on the screen. You do not need to have three Sphinx’s in the first three lines or even consecutively on the screen, they only need to be scattered anywhere on the screen. If you hit two Sphinx’s but come short of the three required for a bonus, don’t feel too bad, as you will still receive ~5x your wager.
When you are able to secure a Cleopatra bonus round, there will be a total of 15 free spins that are awarded. Multipliers and wilds are where your opportunity to win big exists. Not only this, but you will also be able to earn even more free spins in the form of a retrigger. Three Sphinx symbols are again required to initiate the retrigger, which gives the player 15 additional spins. These retriggers can continue over and over again and will also pay out even before the bonus round begins.
Jackpots in Cleopatra are plentiful, but this is not a game that is accompanied by a progressive. While some video slots do now also run progressive meters similar to what you would find on traditional 3 and 5 reel slots, Cleopatra is not one of them. You are playing for the regular old, seemingly uncapped wins that Cleopatra can deliver with just one spin.
Cleopatra slots are produced and distributed by the major slot machine company, IGT. The slot games made by IGT are never-ending and they comprise a large cut of the casino floor as a whole. Unfortunately, IGT has not yet made their slots available in just about any capacity online. There are versions of Cleopatra slots that can be played online for free, but there are currently no real money Cleopatra games that can be played, by US players or even those in other countries.
We expect, given the demos that are now available for play, that IGT will eventually offer Cleopatra slots online both for free/practice and for real money. Watching videos online of slots players at Cleopatra is fun, but nothing beats the excitement of landing three Sphinx’s and starting a bonus round.
