The setting for this slot machine is ancient Egypt, more precisely the period when Queen Cleopatra, the last of the great pharaohs, ruled as Queen of the Nile. These times were exciting and filled with mystery and the Cleopatra slot shares some of that mystery and excitement. As symbols on the reels, to help create an atmosphere relevant to the theme, are Cleopatra, the sphinx, scarab beetles, the crook and the Eye of Horus. Obviously it is the symbols that earn you the wins but none more so than the Cleopatra symbol as that is the wild. Cleopatra is a legend and for such a legend, just being a wild symbol that can replace almost any other symbol on the reels to make a win, is not enough, greater things must be found for her and so, whenever her symbol is used as a wild to enable a win, she will make that win pay double. This makes her symbol more impressive but its ultimate sign of superiority is the fact that if you get 5 of them showing at the same time, you will win a very impressive 10,000 coins.
The sphinx has sat on guard over the mighty Egyptian Empire for thousands of years and so any game dealing with the times of the pharaohs should include it in a very real way and this slot machine does. The sphinx’s might is displayed by it not being able to be replaced, not even by the mighty Cleopatra or her symbol. This means that the sphinx symbol is the scatter and as such can produce a win when only 2 of them are present on the reels but, if you were to get 3 or more, you will trigger the bonus round.
The bonus round on this slot awards 15 free spins but, perhaps mysteriously, the round can be retriggered, adding more sets of 15 free spins to the original ones and when that happens the true might of long standing sphinx can then be seen as, these free spins can grow to a total of 180.
