Slot Name: Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold
USA Players: Accepted
Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold has both pros and cons to it, but the latter clearly outweigh the former. A con would be for me the theme choice, which is inspired by Ancient Egypt, the way a few dozen other titles are, from all developers. It seems to be quite popular, and I assume the players love it as well, otherwise it wouldn’t be so often chosen. The focus on Cleopatra makes it somewhat different from the rest, but not by a lot, and there is also the matter of that progressive jackpot which goes well into the six-figure range. Otherwise, it’s a 5 reel slot, it has 25 lines and fixed payouts go up to $500 only.
If the idea of getting rich while using $1 bets sounds like a winner to you, you will be pleased to hear that the game is available to players based in the US.
Betting & Jackpots
There is nothing for you to decide here. The game uses $1 bets all the time, with line wagers being fixed at $0.04. This covers all the lines and gives you a chance to win a progressive jackpot that could be worth a quarter of million US dollars or more. Land the right combo of five symbols with Cleopatra, and you get her gold or the progressive jackpot in this case. Otherwise, the best payout possible inside is at $500.
We have Cleopatra playing the big role in this game. She is the wild symbol, and at the same time she forms her own combinations and pays big. In fact, getting five Cleopatra wilds on a pay line will trigger the slot’s progressive jackpot. If she appears as just a wild, Cleopatra substitutes for other symbols and also doubles their payouts. She doesn’t have the power to take the place of a to scatter though.
A Pyramid was chosen to represent the scatter in this game. Having multiple symbols with Pyramids on them, in any position, will trigger payouts which range from 2x to 500x the bet ($2 to $500).
Get the minimum of three to scatter symbols to appear during the same round, and in exchange, you gain access to 15 free spins, where prizes are tripled (doesn’t apply to the jackpot). You can re-trigger the feature, 3+ Pyramids bringing you another 15 spins.
There is nothing special about the design of Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold. The Egyptian theme has been often approached before, so you need something truly special to stand out. While this game does this with its progressive jackpot, as far as the design is concerned you get the same pyramid walls in the background of the reels, with images like the Ankh, Eye of Ra, cats, scarabs or Cleopatra for the symbols.
It’s hard not to be impressed with a game that offers huge progressive jackpots and asking in return only for $1 bets.
