Beauty of Cleopatra slot review
Beauty of Cleopatra slot by Novomatic is a reversion to their famous old ethos of simple and quite volatile feature slots with some potential for big wins. This game is pretty generic as far as the Egypt theme goes with reels covered in hieroglyphs, possibly the same ones behind the grid on Book of Ra Deluxe and surely some objects taken from their Pharaoh's Ring slot or IGT's Pharaoh's Fortune. We may even be in the same tomb the Book of Ra series explores judging by the background to the grid plus we hear the same trotting sounds, so will this turn ugly for our bankroll or will the radiance of Cleopatra prevail?
On The Reels...
We get 10 lines only here on Beauty of Cleopatra slot which is indicative of some high line pays on our grid of 5 reels of 3 rows each. Actually, they aren't as high as you may be used to for Novomatic 10-line slots with Pharaoh or Scribe 40x bet for 5-of-a-kind, Boat 30x, Horus Eye or Scarab Jewels 20x plus six card values of 10 or 8x for a full line. You would get 125 x for 5 Sphinx scatters and there are Wilds on all reels with 40x for 4 and a special Progressive Jackpot if you got all 5 on a pay line!
So 3 or more Sphinx scatters will earn you 10-20 free spins depending on what the game offers up for you. All wins are paid at 5x and you can retrigger them too. The mechanic is rather like that of Novomatic's Captain Venture slot in that respect, as you get a random amount of 10 to 20 extra spins in multiples of two. Retriggers are common and you can accumulate in excess of 1000x bet on a good feature here with multiple retriggers.
This game is nothing new in effect and simply harks back to the tried and tested maths model of many older classic Novomatic slots. This means you'll have the game heavily focused on the bonus and little of note in the base game unless you are lucky enough to hit that progressive. You have a pretty poor RTP here of 94.00% which is even lower than their usual 95-ish. The graphics and animations and sounds are pretty simple in keeping with tradition but when you do trigger the free games, excitement and anticipation will always follow on Beauty of Cleopatra slot. All I will say is don't avoid the slot, but prepare yourself with a big bankroll before visiting Cleopatra...Review by Gamingslots
