There are many fine titles in the Aristocrat selection of slots. Some have sequels as well, and we’re going to look at two games here that fall into this category.
The Queen of the Nile is often referred to as Cleopatra, and she does indeed appear in both these games. Aristocrat has done well to present us with two captivating titles here, but will they offer enough to keep you entertained? Furthermore, will you prefer one to the other.
Cleopatra was always going to be used as a wild, and that is the case in this first game. Various other Egyptian-themed symbols are used as high-value icons, while the normal selection of letters is used as lower-paying icons. There are five reels and 20 lines in this game.
Cleopatra doubles all prizes she assists you in winning. She can substitute for everything except for the famous pyramids. These are shown on the scatter symbol. That symbol can trigger scatter prizes for two or more… and 15 free games are offered for three or more. These games offer a 3x multiplier on prizes as well.
The sequel to the above game looks much the same in terms of controls. However, you’ll notice lots of hieroglyphics on the blue-toned background, which is very calming to look at. We get the same number of reels and paylines here as in the first game.
Cleopatra appears once again in her role as the wild, and she brings along that 2x multiplier as well. The paytable is split to show how much you could win for a standard combination and how much is given if Cleopatra forms part of it. We get some free games here if three or more scattered pyramids show up. You can choose which of four free game types you wish to play. Each one involves a different quantity and multiplier.
Could we pick one out of the two Queen of the Nile games as our favorite? There isn’t much to choose between them – they are far more similar than other games produced along the same lines. However, the sequel just pips the other one to the post in our opinion. The choice of free game features is the element that makes it the better game for us. Do you agree?
