The five-reel five-payline slot developed by iSoftBet is sure to impress Ancient Egypt enthusiasts as the slot is all about Cleopatra, a legendary Egyptian queen. The easy-to-play game has sleek graphics with light brown reels stuffed with Egyptian symbols and accessories. The minimum $0.02 bet makes the slot an excellent option for first-timers and penny spotters. Cleopatra’s Treasure is fully available in a free mode with no download or registration needed.
This five-reel slot stands apart from its peers due to some features that are not unique as such, yet they are found rarely in modern and Vegas-style machines. First, all combinations pay from left to right AND from right to left. Needless to say, this great feature will contribute to your winnings and provide more thrilling experience as you spin the reels. Second, all winning combinations start with two matching symbols landed on adjacent reels. Normally, most free slots offer winning combos that incorporate a minimum of three matching icons, except for some bonus symbols and playing cards that may award for two of a kind, in rare instances.
Fittingly, the symbols set includes Egypt-themed icons such as a pair of earrings, necklaces, hookah-like jars, scarabs and other icons offering fairly decent payouts when you have them spun in on an active payline. There are no traditional playing card symbols in the Cleopatra’s Treasure slot. The low-paying icons in the game are the pharaoh’s tomb and earrings awarding x2 to x200 times a line bet. More valuable combos are formed with flails and necklaces paying out x2 to x500 times, for 2 to 5 of a kind. Be all eyes to see the scarabs as they can bring you a massive 5000-coins fixed jackpot if these five land on an active payline.
The betting options are very simple and allow to adjust only two settings before any spin:
Therefore, the floor and ceiling stakes are $0.10 and $10 when playing with all the five win lines activated. Betting max, you stand the chance to grab the top jackpot of $10,000 if you get enough scarabs on a payline.
You can click Spin each round or activate an automatic play by clicking the Auto button located below the reels. The spins will be automated until you hit Stop.
The slot developer has not equipped this slot with wilds or scatters, so your wins will come from regular combos and a Pick ‘Em all type bonus feature activated when 3+ Cleopatra symbols land on any enabled payline. You then enter an ancient temple where you see three sarcophagi. Pick one to reveal an instant cash award or a multiplier applied to a winning amount earned in the triggering round.
iSoftBet has made a good job in Cleopatra’s Treasure, though the slot may seem too simple for some gamblers who like more sophisticated solutions and bonus extras. Yet, the game will appeal to newcomers, casual players and Ancient Egyptian theme enthusiasts. If you are fortunate, you may take away a 5000-coin jackpot and get other generous wins enjoying a both-ways paying model.
