Real Time Gaming’s Cleopatra’s Gold Video Slot Review
August 4, 2012
Australian gamblers are well-known for enjoying the pokies. The company Aristocrat is a popular manufacturer of slots and other games that are found in pubs, bars, shops and other places in Australia, and one of their popular games is the Queen of the Nile slot. Real Time Gaming saw an opportunity to gain favor with Australian players by providing a video slot that was heaviliy based on the ideas and concepts used in the popular Queen of the Nile slot. The end result was Cleopatra's Gold, a nice video slot with a good selection of features.
Cleopatra's Gold by Real Time Gaming is a five-reel video slot that features 20 paylines. You can only bet up to 20 coins on this game per spin, one coin per payline, and this seems like it could give the game a narrow selection of bet sizes at first glance. However, you can set the coin size anywhere from $0.01 to $5.00, so both low-stakes players and high-stakes players will be able to enjoy this game. Despite the fact that this game has a lot of bonus features and a good payout table, it still has a low volatility when compared to many of the popular online video slots out there.
The Cleopatra symbol is wild in this game. If you get five of the Cleopatra symbol on a single payline, then you'll get the jackpot 10,000x payout. This is the largest payout in the game. Aside from that, the next highest payout is 2,500x. A feature that Cleopatra's Gold borrowed from Queen of the Nile is that winning combinations that use the Cleopatra wild symbol receive a 2x multiplier. This allows you to get bigger prizes more often than what the payout table would initially indicate.
The Pyramid symbol is the scatter symbol in this game, and it's also the key to getting a set of free spins. By getting three or more of the scatter symbol on the reels at the same time after a spin, you'll win 15 free spins. These free spins have a 3x multiplier to all of your wins, and the base value of your spin will be the same as whatever amount you wagered when you won the free spins. On top of this, Cleopatra's Gold has a random progressive jackpot that you can hit on any spin since it's awarded randomly.
