Cleopatra MegaJackpots Review
After experiencing immense success upon porting Cleopatra to online casinos in 2012, iconic slot developers IGT decided to up the ante by releasing Cleopatra MegaJackpots just three years later. This jacked-up version of the classic 5-reel, 20 payline slot can see players wins on the jackpot seeded at £500,000.
Cleopatra MegaJackpots is near identical to its predecessor Cleopatra in terms of design. The game has retained the quintessential classic Egyptian theme that sees the reel surrounded by gold trim. Low paying symbols are your standard royal suit 9,10, J, Q, K, A and your high paying symbols are Lotus, Sphinx, Scarab, Gold Pendant, Crook and Flail and Eye of Horus.
Just like the original game, players are treated to a tense Egyptian drumbeat that builds tension during base gameplay. The music does pick up a notch when the bonus features are triggered though, becoming more intense.
We said it in the original Cleopatra review and we'll say it again, what you see is what you get with Cleopatra, it's as simple as they come and emulates classic slots you might find in an actual land-based casino.
Players can change their line bet on the far left-hand side of the action bar along the bottom. Spin the reels using the spin button in the centre, and set up to 50 automated spins using the autospin button on the right-hand side of the action bar.
Naturally, this medium volatility slot has a very low RTP of 88,98% due to the fact that it had a huge progressive jackpot tied to it, so no surprises there. Considering players can win well in excess of £1,000,000 there are not too many complaints from any of us about the fact that this slot is a bit sheepish to pay out.
There's not much to differentiate Cleopatra MegaJackpots from the original Cleopatra game other than the MegaJackpots progressive. Obviously, that alone is pretty impressive, but at the end of the day without this, it's a pretty straight forward ode to a true classic. It's engaging enough and has a huge win potential, so there's no reason not to give this game a spin if you're feeling lucky.
