Cleo – Queen Of Egypt Slots

Cleo-Queen-Of-EgyptCleo – Queen of Egypt is Cryptologic’s attempt at an Egyptian themed slot machine, one of the many game creators that have launched a title with this topic. Cleopatra has been a muse and favorite for many developers, a large portion of the Egyptian themed slot market being actually focused on her. You get the same old Egyptian design in this case, where you see the inside of a temple in the background and various Egyptian objects on the reels. It doesn’t feel like a special game, but that progressive jackpot might change your mind.

There are 5 reels and only 9 paylines in Cleo – Queen of Egypt, with a progressive jackpot being one thing that will attract players, while another would be the slot’s own $4,500. Features are available, but they are not impressive, consisting of a scatter symbol, a bonus game and a wild.

Features of Cleo – Queen of Egypt

Unfortunately, though the game gets a few things right, its features fail to impress. You get both the usual wild and the scatter, but the only thing that comes out of them is a bonus game or a progressive jackpot, so they’ve skipped adding free spins or multipliers in this case.

The substitute is the one you’re going to see Cleopatra on, the symbol that both awards the progressive jackpot and the rest of the time substitutes for the other symbols (scatter excluded). The role of the wild is well known, a symbol that is present in pretty much every modern slot machine, to an extent that I’m surprised when it’s missing. A single wild is more than enough to get a new combo formed if the rest of the symbols are already in place. However, the wild can also form its own combinations, and even awards prizes when that happens. With 5 Cleo wilds on the payline, the prize is the progressive jackpot.

The Pyramid is another typical image used in these slot machines, but somehow it manages to look better here, the picture being taken at night and having a camel rider in front. As a scatter, the symbol awards prizes to players by taking into account all the Pyramids that are present during a spin, even if they are not aligned on some payline. With 2 to 5 Pyramids, the prizes vary from 1x to 100x the amount used in the triggering bet.

Bonus Feature

The Pyramid does more for the player than just trigger cash prizes. A minimum of three scattered Pyramids will be enough to get you inside the bonus feature. It’s a pretty simple picking game, where your choices reveal either prizes or multipliers to be applied to the total bet. Finding a trap signals the end of the feature.


Betting options and jackpots

Since the game requires the use of a single coin for each line, you only need 9 coins to cover the game. You can take it from there, using coin denominations between $0.05 and $5, which can increase the value of the wager up to $45.

The $4,500 that the game can offer on its own is obtained with the scatter symbol’s help, which offers a 100x multiple of the bet. The better prize would be a progressive jackpot though.

The Crazy Jackpots are the 9 progressive prizes that Cleo will offer you. Each of the 9 lines has its own jackpot, and depending on which one you get the 5 wilds, you win the prize associated with it.

Design and symbols

The design of this Egyptian themed slot is good enough, with the surrounding graphics being better than average, showing you the interior of a temple. The reels are surrounded by gold decorations, and they look like they belong in a game such as this. The reels, completely white, and the heavy use of playing cards are not as convincing. There are a lot of other slots with a similar theme to compare this one to, and it doesn’t come out a winner.

Symbols: Cleopatra (wild, progressive jackpot), Pyramids (scatter, 100x the bet), Pharaoh (750x), Anubis (200x), Eye of Ra (200x), Ankh Cross (150x), Ace (150x), King or Queen (125x), Jack or 10 (100x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The 9 Crazy Jackpots are the ones that should be interesting enough to warrant further exploration. In every other way, the game is average at best.

This Cleo Queen Of Egypt slot is offered by all online casinos with Cryptologic software, playable either in practice or in real money mode.
