IGT decided to cash in on the success of their original Cleo slot and came up with higher variance Cleopatra II slot machine that’s just as fun.
If you are a fan of the original Cleopatra slot, or perhaps have played on the MegaJackpots version of the game, then you will be familiar with the theme here. If not then here’s what to expect.
All set on a lavish golden background, the symbols reflect the wealth and success of this ancient African empire.
You’ll find the lower paying A – 10 symbols all embellished in little Egyptian flourishes as well as the higher paying golden statues of the gods Anubis (dog), Bast (cat), and Horus (hawk).
And, of course, you’ve got Queen Cleo herself as the highest paying symbol, and the wild which doubles any wins she’s involved in. Finally you’ve got the sphinx scatter symbol which is used to trigger a potentially impressive free spins round.
As the volatility of this game is on the higher end of the scale, you’re going to want to make sure your bank roll lasts as you try to hunt down those free spin games.
With a return to player rate of 95.13% you can expect to go long periods without winning much to nothing at all in the base game, before you get a few decent 5 – 10x your bet wins or trigger the free spin games.
Just remember that this Cleopatra II slot is no fool. Even though she welcomes you to share in her riches, she a capricious queen who you have to court with your patience and love.
If this sounds like too much work, perhaps a less dangerous IGT machine, like the pretty Kitty Glitter slot, might be a better place to start.
That might sound impressive, but you’ll need to be very lucky to re-trigger the free spin games enough times to make that possible.
On average you can actually expect to get around 8 – 10 free spins, with maybe one re-trigger or so, for up to about 20 free spins and 20x multiplier.
How do you get the Cleopatra II free spins you ask? Simply find 3 or more of the glowing golden sphinx symbols across the reels.
You’ll then be asked to pick between three boxes to reveal the amount of free spins you’ll win – anything from between 7 to 15.
Then starting with a 1x multiplier on your first spin, that multiplier increases by 1x per spin finishing on the number of free spins you have.
So what you are really hoping for is to get some great big wins later on during the free spin round. It’s a crazy sort of thrill where on each spin your hear beats a little faster as the multiplier gets a little higher.
On average we’ve only managed to get around 45 – 60x our bet here. But with a little luck getting high than 500x your bet is not out of the question.
Not only can you play them online but also on your mobile meaning you can grab your Egyptian slot fix wherever you are.
This Cleopatra II slot game however misses out on that fact. Looking slightly dated, and with no auto spin function, you might find yourself regressing to the originals.
If you are looking for something that mixes the ancient with the quirky, you could also try the Leprechaun Goes Egypt slot, which doesn’t need as much taming as this IGT queen.
That said, very few people do big free spins thrills like IGT, and Cleopatra 2 has more of that than the sahara has sand. The hope of that big 50x multiplier is enough to get us playing.Play Now at BGO »
