Queen Cleopatra is powered by Novomatic and has 5 reels and 10 paylines – the ancient Egyptian themed game can be played on all devices from 40p to £50 per spin. Like other popular Novomatic titles, it comes with a Free Games feature where you can get up to 20 free spins with a special expanding symbol. Will Cleopatra show you the way to her riches?

You are taken for a trip to the Nile where you come across the most powerful and beautiful rule of ancient Egyptian times. Set within a pyramid, it has typical Novomatic graphics in that it looks like a land based classic (think Book of Ra Deluxe). Symbols on the reels include Egyptian style A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, jewellery, Androsphinxes and Queen Cleopatra herself – she is the most lucrative symbol giving you 500 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

The game’s main attraction is the Free Games feature which is played when you get 3 or more magic book symbols anywhere on the reels – 3, 4 or 5 will give you 2, 20 or 200 times your stake as well as 10 free spins. Before you start playing, 1 symbol is randomly chosen to become the special expanding symbol.

When that selected symbol appears during the free spins, it will automatically expand to take over the whole reel. If you get a few of these, prepare yourself for huge wins. The good news is that these expanded symbols even pay out on non-adjacent positions/reels.

All in all, Queen Cleopatra is a clone of favourites like Book of Ra Deluxe, Lord of the Ocean and Red Lady – it offers nothing original unfortunately but it is a highly volatile offering so is appealing if you’re searching for that big win. You just need luck in the Free Games feature.
