Cleopatra is an online video pokie which has made waves over the years. It is not new by any means, and has long been around in the land-based casinos of Las Vegas and beyond. It is still a much loved title, though. One of the original Ancient Egyptian themed games, Cleopatra contains very colourful icons, including Ankhs, Eye of Horus, Scarab beetles, the Sphinx, cartouches and more.
Cleopatra – like most IGT games – isn’t going to be incredibly cheap to play. The slot contains line bets of 1 coin up to 100 coins and all 20 paylines on those 5 reels can be wagered individually. Spins on Cleopatra can range from 1 coin per spin up to 2,000 coins per spin. The good thing is, you do get value for your costly stakes in this game.
About This Pokie

Fee Spins/Multiplier Better:Up To 180 Free Spins
Wild symbol: Cleopatra herself acts as the wild symbol in this pokie. It is also the best paying symbol. When it appears, it can replace all other icons in the game, save for the Sphinx symbol. When it appears in a winning combination, the wild will also double the value of said combination.
Scatter icon: The Sphinx is Cleopatra’s scatter icon. Landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them in any positions on the reels, will offer players scattered wins of 2x, 5x, 20x or 100x their total bet, respectively. That is pretty generous for a scatter icon.
Cleopatra bonus: Three or more scatters will trigger the Cleopatra Bonus. In this bonus round, players will get to play with a total of 15 free games. During that free spins bonus round, all wins will be tripled. The exception to this rule is when a player lands 5 wilds in a winning combination. Up to 180 additional free spins can be won in this scatter game, by landing three or more scatters whilst the bonus is in session.
Cleopatra (the wild icon) is the best paying symbol. If a player was to land 3 or more of them across any active payline, then they would accumulate a win of 10,000 coins. Cleopatra is a non-progressive jackpot pokie, although IGT have recently released a progressive jackpot version of the game. Understandably, the progressive jackpot in that version of the title is going to be considerably higher than in this game, so it might be worth a look.
Cleopatra and other IGT developed games can be costly, although you do normally get a good return for your wagers. The average pay-out percentage in Cleopatra is around 95.02%, and since the wins are generous, you should do well. That being said, Cleopatra remains a high variance slot machine game, which won’t always suit every kind of online casino player.
