Cleopatra Themed Online Slots

There are more online slots, eight at last count, dedicated to Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, than to any other person, historical or fictional. Cleopatra was a gutsy woman way ahead of her times. She had a Roman Emperor Julius Caesar and a Roman General Marc Antony eating out of her hands. Her suicidal death being bitten by an asp inside her pyramid was as drama filled as her life had been. Therefore it is hardly surprising that all software providers offer online slots games themed on her.

Cleopatra's Pyramid from software provider Vegas Technology is one of the most popular ones. The usual symbols from ancient Egypt are found on the reels. They include pyramid, scarab, sphinx, ankh and mummy. Cleopatra is the wild symbol, doubles payouts and offers a fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins. However this online slot game is liked for its bonus game on the second screen. Players start from the bottom row of the pyramid and move upwards, selecting one stone from each row. As long as they draw bonus credits they continue to move upwards. But when they draw the asp then it is game over for them.

The WagerWorks online slot game with this theme is called Cleopatra. The symbols are very similar to the Vegas Technology slot game, but the styling is a bit modern. Cleopatra is the wild symbol, doubles payouts and offers a fixed jackpot of 10,000 coins, but she is more animated and vocal when she offers payouts. WagerWorks also offers this slot game separately linked to its progressive jackpot network called MegaJackpots.

The Cryptologic slot game is the latest of the lot and is called Cleo Queen of Egypt. The graphics are therefore sharper and more life like, but they portray similar objects from ancient Egypt. The innovative feature of this slot game is the Crazy Jackpots. Each of the nine paylines has an independent progressive jackpot associated with it. When five Cleopatra symbols appear on an enabled payline then the jackpot for that payline is won.

By far the best Cleopatra themed online slot game is Cleopatra's Coins from Rival Gaming. One of the reasons is that Cleopatra's Coins is based on the specific theme of Cleopatra rather than the general ancient Egypt theme of the slot games described earlier. The introductory clip shows the Roman Galleons landing at Alexandria and Julius Caesar and Marc Antony being received by Cleopatra. Cleopatra, Caesar and Antony figure as symbols on the reels thus connecting with the history. Most of the other symbols are hieroglyphic images and this is also a welcome change. The scarab is the wild symbol and in the animation it changes from an ornamental one
to a real one and crawls off the reels. The asp, which was responsible for Cleopatra's death, triggers free spins. If there are five asp symbols scattered on the reels then players are awarded 100 free spins that can be retriggered. The bonus game on the second screen is entertaining and triggered by the Cleopatra's coin symbols. A very provocatively dressed Cleopatra comes on the screen and says "Not every Emperor or General will have my treasures". In the bonus game players have to smash urns to reveal and earn the wealth they contain.

The other Cleopatra themed slot games are Cleopatra's Chest from Virtue Fusion, Cleopatra's Gold from Realtime Gaming and Cleopatra's Secrets from Skillonnet.
