MegaJackpots Cleopatra Slot
IGT’s Cleopatra Slot has earned its place amongst the all-time greats of video slots, originally appearing in land-based casinos back in the day and quickly replicating that success on its debut as an online slot. This Egyptian themed slot seemed irresistible to players – and for good reason – but Cleo was by historical accounts a canny operator so it’s no surprise that she’s sought to enchant her loyal subjects with a tempting progressive jackpot game.
Cleopatra MegaJackpots very wisely keeps the Cleopatra slot basegame at its core, so that’s a beautifully presented five-reel, twenty-payline challenge. The Mega Jackpots symbol is the richest prize you’ll be hunting here, as it tops out the paytable with a jackpot of 10,000 times your stake for five on a payline (with a twist, of which more later) plus acts as a Wild that not only substitutes for all other symbols except the Sphinx Scatter, but also doubles any wins it generates in this way.
The Sphinx is excluded from the Wild’s influence for the reason that it has mystical powers too – operating as a Scatter you only need to see two or more instances of this beast’s inscrutable smile in view to earn a payout, whilst three or more will also grant you access to this online slot’s freespins feature. Initially gifted with fifteen free spins, a player can enjoy all wins being tripled in this feature (bar five Jackpot symbols) and the possibility of further retriggers from the Sphinx up to a stunning ceiling of 180 spins!
So Cleopatra Mega Jackpots clearly hasn’t lost any of the charms of its sister slots, but it does have very special allure for those treasure hunters looking for the rarer opportunities to excavate the biggest online slot wins. Linked into the network of other Mega Jackpot slots, Cleo Mega Jackpot can deliver truly life-changing wins on the moment a player lands five of the Mega Jackpot symbols on the centre payline. With a progressive prize substantially larger than the standard jackpot possible on the basegame, this would be tempting enough, but Cleopatra Mega Jackpot slot throws in a behind-the-scenes Second Chance to land this prize which can be triggered randomly after any spin.
It all adds up to a heightened sense of tense excitement on any spin since, even if the resulting combination of symbols doesn’t land you a paytable win, there’s the possibility that Cleo’s biggest prize could then unexpectedly drop in your lap. Also worth noting if you’re up for this slot machine’s progressive challenge, its odds are exactly proportional to your stake so doubling a stake will double the chances of winning the jackpot via the Second Chance route. That said, you don’t have to have deep pockets to enjoy Cleopatra Mega Jackpot so don’t make the mistake of ignoring this online slot because you think it only rewards high-rollers.
Cleopatra Mega Jackpot is very much progressive pleasure and although it might have a slightly less generous overall RTP (88.98%) than the other Cleopatra Slots, that’s more than compensated by the whopping headline jackpot this legendary Queen can bestow on her most loyal slot servants.
