A very popular slot game with an Egyptian theme, centered around the famous queen, Cleopatra’s Pyramid involves a simple red background with ancient-style colorful curtains dropping behind the game’s title. The background seen on the paytable as well as the game rules is far more impressive since it features the gorgeous queen in her royal outfit of blue, red and gold as she leans back on the landscape of the Great Pyramids, the Nile river and the endless Palm Trees glistening under the hot sun. The game features 5 reels with 3 rows and 20 paylines. Coin sizes start at 1 cent and go as high as 10 dollars. That puts the minimum possible total bet at 20 cents and the maximum one at 200 dollars, provided that all paylines are activated. Also, the slot will offer a great number of profitable symbols, including a wild, a scatter and a bonus symbol and a couple of excellent bonus features.
Payments in the Pyramid
The best paying symbol of the game is the wild Cleopatra. The Queen delivers 10 coins for 2 symbols, 200 coins for 3 symbols, 2500 coins for 4 symbols and the game’s top prize of 10 000 coins for 5 symbols. The scatter Scarab Beetle pays with multiplied on the total bet, offering 2 times the bet for 2 symbols, 5 times for 3 symbols, 20 times for 4 symbols and 500 times for 5 symbols. The golden shiny Eye of Horus symbol pays 2 coins, 25 coins, 125 coins and 1000 coins for 2, 3, 4 and 5 matching symbols. The Sphinx symbol delivers the exact same payouts as those of the Eye of Horus symbol. The Mummy sarcophagus as well as the Tutankhamun’s Bird symbol pay 2 coins for 2 symbols, 10 coins for 3 symbols, 75 coins for 4 symbols and 300 coins for 5 symbols. The rest of the symbols in the game are all the regular card letters and number and are in possession of just 3 winning combinations from 3 to 5 matching symbols. The Ace and the King pay 10, 60 and 300 coins. The Queen and the Jack deliver 5, 20 and 125 coins. The 10 and the 9 give 5, 15 and 100 coins.
Cleopatra’s Effects and Features
As a wild, Cleopatra is capable of replacing the rest of the symbols in the game in order to complete possible winning combinations and whenever a payout is acquired with the assistance of the substituting wild effect, it will be multiplied by 2. The only irreplaceable symbols are the scatter and the bonus symbol. The scatter Scarab Beetle is responsible for the activation of the free spins and when at least 3 Beetles show up on the reels, 15 free spins will be given to the gambler. Everything that is won during those free spins will be multiplied by 3 except for the earnings made during the free spins that were activated in an already initiated round of free spins. Naturally, the free spins can be restarted provided the right Scarab combination reappears. The main bonus round of the game can be started through the special Pyramid bonus symbol (the only one in the game that doesn’t offer individual payouts). Whenever the bonus symbol shows up on both the second and the fourth reel on an activated payline, the feature will start. If various different paylines are crossing the pair of triggering symbols, the earnings made during the bonus round will be multiplied by the number of those paylines.
Cleopatra’s Pyramid Slots is one of the best Egyptian-themed games available (even though they are all great), offering numerous profitable symbols, a wild and a scatter with helpful effects and a pair of solid, generous bonus games.
