Cleopatra II Slot
Cleopatra II is a video slot brought to you by Virgin Gaming, and available at Virgin Casino. It’s an update on the most popular slot amongst their patrons, and has all the features of the original, plus a free spins bonus game that has a ever-increasing multiplier. The way the game has been set up is to pay out bigger amounts less frequently, so this is one that is more suited to the higher end player than those who are looking for many small payouts. But patience is handsomely rewarded – the bonus odds are improved, so although there are dry spells (as befit a game with a desert kingdom theme), when you do hit, it’s likely to be a bonus and likely to pay out well.
Cleopatra II Slot gives you 5 reels to spin, and up to 20 paylines to bet on – you can set it to play 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 lines at a time, and can bet from 1 to 5 credits per line, for a max bet of 100 credits. The Cleo II symbol is Wild – if you manage to get one or more of these on an active payline, not only does it complete the winning combination for you, it also doubles your payout. The Scatter Sphinx symbol is the one that contains the bonus power. It acts both as a win multiplier as well as a free spins trigger. If you get 3 of them, you win an extra 3x your total bet, and 5 to 15 free spins. Hitting 4 gives you a bonus of 10x your total bet plus 8 – 18 free spins, and hitting a Sphinx on all 5 reels will give you a lovely 200x total bet bonus plus 10 – 20 free spins. When you trigger the free spins bonus round you are given 3 boxes to choose from, which determine how many free spins you get.
In the Free Spins feature the action and payouts are significantly notched up. For a start, the Wild and Scatter symbols are still active and appear more frequently. The scatter rewards you more – up to 50x bet x a bonus multiplier – this multiplier can go up to 50 times! The way this multiplier works is that it increases by 1 for each spin – and because the free spins can be retriggered, this multiplier can grow to the aforementioned 50x.
With bonus upon bonus, multiplier upon multiplier, and free spins upon free spins, this is not only an exciting game to play, but also a very rewarding one – the max payout is a royal 250,000 credits. It’s a worthy successor to the royal line started with the original game, and for the more serious slots players looking for bigger payouts who are prepared to forego small frequent wins, Cleopatra II is a must.
