Cleopatra’s Chest Slots

Cleopatras-ChestCleopatra is at the center of the action in one of IGT’s slot machines once again, only this time the focus seems to be mostly on her small treasure chest and on the riches that are hiding inside. The Egyptian theme has been overdone in the slot industry, so normally I wouldn’t be overjoyed at the prospect of trying yet another Cleopatra themed game, but in this case the progressive jackpot can be quite impressive, reaching the six figure range. With that in mind, let’s proceed and see how Cleopatra’s Chest (treasure chest) feels like.

This 5 reel & 15 payline slot machine has a progressive jackpot to offer, its own set of prizes of up to $7,500 and not much in the way of features. It’s a design from IGT that focuses on players that prefer their slot machines simple, yet can’t stay away from the better looking graphics of a modern game.

Features of Cleopatra’s Chest

For a modern slot machine, Cleopatra’s Chest can be a bit weird, a 5 reel title that offers no modern features inside, relying solely on its progressive jackpot to make it more attractive to the audience. I’m sure there are plenty of players out there that will prefer a simple game that has more reels and paylines over a classic, so I’m not going to worry about this game not being a success, not when it has progressive jackpots that can give you a quarter of a million in prizes, or more.

Betting options and jackpots

You get only 15 paylines in Cleopatra’s Chest, and each one only asks for one coin in your bets, to become active. The coins don’t go too high in value either, with the maximum being $1, while the minimum is only $0.10. The $15 wager that is the highest of the slot will get you all the prizes that the slot offers.

Payouts will go up to 7,500 coins ($7,500) when you take into account only the slot’s own prizes. The progressive jackpot is the better alternative, but the coin denomination that was used will determine the amount you’re getting. $0.10 to $1 coins will get you 10% to 100% of the amount available in the progressive jackpot.

Design and symbols

It’s not a bad design, though the theme is way too common and available in dozens of slot machines already. The symbols look like they were hand-drawn and colored, but it’s not a bad look for them, and the slot appears vintage, which I like. There are small pyramids serving as support for the payline numbers, with playing cards and regular Egyptian symbols on the reels.

Symbols: Cleopatra (progressive jackpot), Pharaoh (7,500x), Tivoli (5,000x), Cobra Snake (1,000x), Eye of Horus (500x), Pyramid (200x), Ace (100x), King (50x) and Queen (25x).


Is It Worth Playing?

The progressive jackpot is one good reason to play it, as is the simplicity of this slot machine, something you don’t see that often in 5 reel titles, especially those with 15 lines or more.

You will find Cleopatras Chest at any online casino which chooses to use software from IGT, playable either for free or for real money.
