Comin’ atchya: Cleopatra tips and facts

Are you ready to delve into the world of Cleopatra? Let these Cleopatra tips and facts guide you on your way…

Cleopatra slot by IGT is inspired by the legendary Queen of Egypt and her many riches, so you’ll see symbols like Cleopatra herself, the Sphinx, scarab beetles, and some cool hieroglyphics. The game has a standard 20 paylines and 5 reels and offers a max payout of £250,000!

1. Make like an Egyptian

You never do know when an ancient artefact will be discovered. Much the same, betting on all paylines increases your chances of hitting a winning combo, coz no one can predict which payline those symbols will land on.

2. The queen of the Nile

Always remember that the queen of the Nile herself, Cleopatra, is the wild symbol in this game. She has the power to substitute for any other symbol (except for the scatter) to help you form winning combinations. In other words, she’s the ultimate wing-woman, and she’ll always have your back.

Cleopatra is also the highest paying symbol in the game. Five Cleopatra symbols on an active payline can earn you the maximum win of £250,000 – that’s enough to make even the pharaohs jealous!

3. Unlock the secrets of the Sphinx

Pssssst, can you guess what one of the best features of Cleopatra is? That would be the free spins bonus round.

Keep an eye out for the Sphinx – it’s the key to unlocking the game’s free spins feature. Land three or more of these bad boys anywhere on the reels, and you’ll trigger 15 free spins. Plus, all your winnings during the free spins feature will be tripled! Now that’s what I call a royal treat.

4. Feeling adventurous?

It can be a long and fruitless trek up the pyramid of wins, but if you want the chance to increase your wins even more, you can try your luck with the Gamble feature. This allows you to double or quadruple your winnings by guessing the colour or suit of a card. But beware fun-seekers – if you guess wrong, you lose your winnings, so it’s a risky move.

5. Cleo also loved a flutter!

Now, let’s talk about some tips that are more interesting than the standard fare. For starters, did you know that Cleopatra was actually a bit of a gambler herself? Legend has it that she once wagered her entire kingdom on a single roll of the dice. Luckily for her, she won, and went on to become one of the most powerful rulers in history. So if you’re feeling bold, channel your inner Cleo and go for the big win.

In conclusion, Cleopatra slot is a true classic and its popularity can vouch for that. Cleopatra is actually part of a series of slot games from IGT, with several sequels and spin-offs, including Cleopatra II, Cleopatra Plus, and Cleopatra Diamond Spins, to name but a few.

Cleopatra is available to play from £0.20 per bet on a variety of devices, including desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

So go forth, brave adventurer, and may the luck of the pharaohs be with you!
