Similar Slots To Cleopatra For U.S Players! Cleopatra's Gold is very similar to IGT's Cleopatra slot machine,
which is also available here at OCV. Like Cleo, it is a 20-line slot with wild symbols, scatters and 15 free spins
bonus, all wins trebled. I'd play it at Club USA Casino who currently have a $777 signup bonus offer
About the Cleopatra Slot
Any 5 reel slots fan who's been to a land casino in Las Vegas, the UK, or just about anywhere for that
matter, will probably have seen or played IGT's Cleopatra slot,
an IGT game that is arguably the most popular 5 reel slot of all time. That's not to say that other games like
Wolf Run or the original
Da Vinci Diamonds slot machine don't give Cleopatra a
good run for her money - and I am ignoring the popularity of progressives too! But you get my drift.
IGT have launched an online version of this Vegas classic. It's faithful to the original Cleopatra found in land based casinos
(but with an improved RTP) and has the 15 Free Spins bonus feature that
was first introduced on Aristocrat's Queen Of The Nile game and has become the
benchmark for slot feature rounds ever since.
The version above is the original version, the first of two Cleopatra slots
released by IGT - the other being Cleopatra 2 (which personally I prefer).
While I write this, it occurs to me that the Egyptian theme has also become something of an enigma - some of the biggest slot games in history
have Egypt as the central theme: the Cleopatra slots, aforementioned Queen Of The Nile and subsequent follow-up plus the
very popular (in Europe and South America) Novomatic slot game, Book Of Ra. Egypt, Rome, Greek Gods - must
be something about the mythology we all love.
Anyway, back to Cleo: the original Cleopatra slot (above) and Cleopatra II share the feature trigger mechanism: 3 scatters anywhere in view.
On the original however, when you get the feature you get 15 free spins with all wins trebled (15 x3),
while on Cleopatra II, you get to pick a number of spins and the multiplier increases by one on each spin. But it's much harder to hit wins on
Cleopatra II in the feature round, compared to the original (but when you do it can be monster because of the increasing multiplier in Cleo II's free
One note about the respective expected returns (RTP). The two versions of Cleo you see at land-based casinos (one's a sit-down IGT Game King
slot machine while the other is the upright 'kiosk' version) both have lower payouts than the online versions. There are two online versions
available which differ slightly in appearance, but are both identical in game play. The version you see here has a 95.02%
expected return at all of the online casinos listed above. The key difference between the online version and the land-based
versions of Cleopatra that account for the payout percentage differences is that the online version pays out for two
scatter symbols (unlike when you play Cleopatra slot machines using the 'Game King' boxes) and also for 2 9's, unlike both the GameKing
and the Kiosk versions at land based casinos.
For those of you who enjoy playing Cleopatra but want some variation, you may also be interested to know that IGT have now launched
the Pharaoh's Fortune slot for online play! It's a hard task-master but you can't have missed it
in land-based casinos...even now in 2013 you see more Pharaoh's Fortune slot games around than you do Cleopatra slots which is a
measure of it's popularity.
Cleopatra 5 Scatter Win
Thought you might be interetsted to see this screenshot of 5 scatters that I hit playing the Cleopatra slot on 31st Jan 2010 at
BetVictor's online casino. It was the first (and only!)
time it's ever happened to me though!
IGT Cleopatra Slots (Video Demos)
The following slot video from the Slotjunkies video channel
(which has over 200 slot videos) show both Cleopatra slots in action, each with the free spins
bonus round so you can see how they work. Neither of these games are available to North Americans to play for real
unfortunately BUT the very similar Cleopatra's Gold slot can be played both here
and at various online casinos as an alternative. Like Cleopatra, It also features 5 reels, scatters and
15 free spins all wins trebled and while perhaps not quite as smooth as IGT's version, also has a random jackpot feature.
