Cleopatra Plus is the third instalment in the Cleopatra series by IGT; the first being Cleopatra. After the initial slot was a huge success, the software giant devised the Cleopatra Mega Jackpots title which delivered the same thrilling and engaging gameplay, with one big extra - an added progressive jackpots feature. Fast forward a few years and Cleopatra Plus was unleashed to the online casino community, with more thrills than ever before.
Based on the last active ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, Cleopatra Plus will take players on an adventure which is out of this world. Hot desert sands, pyramids, hieroglyphics and all the usual characters including Anubis, have their own unique story to tell and you’re invited to discover the darkest secrets, all from 40p a spin. Storm clouds lay heavy above a dusty red sky, but the beauty lies within the 5x3 grid of stunning symbols, all of which have many different pays and ways to trigger bonus features. Talking of which, you will have the pleasure of seeking down fruitful bonuses, including; a level-up feature, game awards, payback boosts, wilds – including stacked wilds, free spins and a fascinating map collection feature; how many will you collect.
IGT slots are often branded high roller slots, but this is not the case. The demo version of each slot displays bet values which are substantially more than they would be when playing with real cash; Cleopatra Plus displays bet values of £40 for minimum stakes and £2,000 for max stakes, but in reality, bets start at a reasonable 40p a spin and reach their peak at £200 a spin. Compared to demo play, this is hardly going to break the bank. Use the control panel to the lower of your screen to set your bet and monitor your bankroll and wins.
The Cleopatra slot machine was released on 8th January 2012. It took some years for Cleopatra Plus to be launched, but the clue on what to expect is hidden within the word ‘plus’. Th original slot release boasted 5 reels and 20 win lines with a maximum jackpot of 10,000x your stake, whilst the Cleopatra Plus delivers 5 reels and twice as many win lines; 40, but the jackpot is lower; just 1,500x your stake, but you can benefit from modifiers to boost it.
Wins appear in almost every spin, but don’t get too excited; unless you’re plying high roller stakes, you’re unlikely to hit a big win for some time. Players with a limited bankroll will need to bet conservatively so as not to run out of cash before the bonus features are triggered.
At Royal Slots, the RTP of the Cleopatra Plus slot is 96.5%, making it a medium variance.
Cleopatra Plus was released on 27h October 2016.
Cleopatra Plus is a 5 reel, 40 fixed win line slot machine.
The new and improved graphics of Cleopatra Plus are evident with both desktop and mobile versions. Crystal clear graphics, immersive sounds and an instant-play interface are all set to delight, but not as much as the bonus features, that’s obvious. By choosing to play on mobile or tablet, you will be able to enjoy a more convenient style of gameplay with the same usual features. Flip your device to landscape mode and watch as the Egyptian vixen come to life.
Unfortunately, Cleopatra Plus can only be played manually; one spin at a time.
To land a big win is easier said than done; a five-of-a-kind combination of Cleopatra symbols is required for the maximum multiplier of 1,500x. Whether you bet big or bet small, 1,500x your stake will mean big cash. The six Egyptian-themed characters are the medium value symbols, awarding wins of up to 400x with each complete win line of matching symbols. Scarab beetles, Eye of Ra, Trio of flower and the Ankh award wins of 300x, 200x, 150x and 100x respectively. Card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A will boost your bankroll with generous multipliers of between 40x and 75x.
The bonus features can be a little complex to understand when first playing, but all will become clearer as you spin the reels. Level Up Plus; this allows you to level-up and unlock new bonus maps and free spin features, which increase your payback. In order to level-up, you need to fill the meter which is positioned to the top right of the reel engine. Every time a golden pharaoh symbol or pharaoh accompanied by cleopatra symbols appear, 1, 2 or 3 ‘followers’ will be added to your meter. No need to sit scratching your head; this is simple! If a golden symbol bearing three people appears, three will be deducted from the meter to the top of the machine and as soon as the meter reaches zero, you’ll be awarded the bonus feature.
Cleopatra is wild and will substitute for all game symbols bar golden tiles (level-up symbols). If one or more wild symbols substitute in a win, that win is doubled in value. Wild symbols can appear in stacks of 2, 3, 6 or 10. The size of the wild stacks is randomly determined on each spin. Three, four or five golden tiles will award the free spins bonus with a number of followers to place in the bonus map. Choose to place your followers in Alexandria, the Nile River Valley or the Pyramid of Giza. All maps have the same expected payback with one exception; on levels 7 to 8, your best choice is the Pyramids of Giza, should you trigger the feature with 6 or more followers.
You will begin with 5 free spins and a 1x multiplier. Each bonus ap has a number of locations where you can place your followers. Press a location to place a follower there. You may place several followers at the same location, or you can choose to spread them out. Once all your followers are placed, each location reveals its reward which could be a number of free spins, a multiplier, an initial bonus win, a last spin multiplier or a number of super spins! You’ll receive a location reward for each follower placed on that location.
Collecting followers and levelling up can take substantially long periods of time, so too can the free spins. Thankfully, base game wins appear often and allow you to continue on your quest for the big paying bonus features.
