There are a few slot games around today that everyone must surely have heard of. Cleopatra is one of them. This is the simplest title to introduce the famous ruler of ancient Egypt – the woman who apparently met her end when she was bitten by an asp (a snake). That may not be true, but it is true that this slot game from IGT is a huge success.
Let’s find out why that’s the case.
You may not think color is a huge influence on whether slot games are going to be a success or not. Yet we have played some good games with great features that are dull in the color department. It does make a difference.
There is some detail behind the reels, where the color is gradually graded from blue to purple. Yet every icon in action in this game is detailed, sharp, and a joy to see.
Her blue eyes and detailed golden headdress are the wild symbol in this slot. This is also marked by the presence of the title underneath that image. This will replace everything else with one exception – the scattered Pharaoh image. The wild also comes with a 2x multiplier if you secure a win with its help.
The wild can also lead you towards the ultimate prize of 10,000 coins. To win this, you must find five wilds on the same payline – one that you have bet on for that spin.
To earn these, you must find three or more scattered Pharaohs on the reels in the base game. These spins will enjoy wins worth triple their usual amounts, regardless of whether they feature a Cleopatra wild or not.
This is a solid game and one that does not offer anything unusual. It may therefore be quite a surprise that Cleopatra slots have proven to be such a big hit for IGT. We think it is due to the combination of the above factors. Lots of slot players like a solid game they can rely on to be entertaining and appealing to look at. The ancient Egypt theme is a popular one too, which is yet another reason that tips the odds in favor of this being a popular online slot game to play.
