IGT’s Cleopatra Megajackpots, is, of course, themed around the formidable Queen of the Nile and as such, is a visual masterpiece. If you have ever played the original Cleopatra game, most of this will seem familiar, however, with the bonus of an incredible progressive jackpot, which means the chance to win a life-changing sum of money along the way!
Cleopatra Megajackpots is a five reel, 20 pay line game with stunning Egyptian theming. The background music is unusual but builds tension successfully, and all the symbols are related to Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt, such as Scarab beetles, hieroglyphics, the Eye of Horus, and for the cards 9-K, just ornate detailing.
Cleopatra Megajackpots boasts several bonus features that will not be unfamiliar to players of slots, especially those that have previously played the standard Cleopatra game. The Wilds symbol for this version of the game is the MegaJackpots slot logo, which doubles any value win when it lands on a winning pay line – a fantastic way to build up your winning pot! Scatter symbols are shown by the Sphinx, and three or more of these, anywhere across the five reels will give you fifteen spins for free, as well as a 3x multiplier! Free spins can, hypothetically, be re-triggered up to a whopping 180 times. There is also the chance to trigger a Second Chance random feature, on any non-winning spins which is another shot at winning the price.
These bonus features offer hours of entertainment, more chances to get that top prize, and (hopefully!) a few lucky smaller wins along the way too. They’re simple to understand but show up regularly and keep the game exciting.
Of course, with this game, it is all about the enormous, and ever growing, progressive jackpot and the way to win is pretty simple: just find five of the wild symbols on the centre reel, and you will bag the money. The more people that are not successful in winning the jackpot, the more money is put into the pot, and the bigger your potential win could be – it’s no wonder people love playing slots with progressive jackpots!
In and of itself Cleopatra is a beautifully themed, fun game, with enjoyable bonuses and chances to win. Adding on the progressive jackpot makes this a fantastic game to enjoy, whether you are a new player or a seasoned pro, whether you win several small-medium wins, or you take home that incredible, life-changing jackpot.
