Go searching for the Book of Cleopatra which could be the key to unlocking untold riches. That’s the theory at any rate in this 5 reel, 10 payline slot from Stake Logic. The highlight of this ancient Egyptian adventure is the bonus round that awards up to 20 free spins complete with special expanding symbols. If you can’t wait to trigger the feature, you’ll be given the opportunity to buy your way in. Play on all devices from between 10p and £50 per spin.
The colourful design here is rather nicely done. The stone-style reels are set within a pair of ornately decorated pillars. There you’ll find gold edged A to 10 royal values. More rewarding are the cat god Bastet and the bird god Horus, both of which offer payouts of 0.5, 3, 10 or 75 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The Pharaoh comes next, offering awards of up to 200 times your stake. Cleopatra is the most rewarding symbols. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of the Egyptian queen in combination and you can look forward to a payout of some 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your stake.
The magical book is both the wild and the scatter. It replaces all other symbols and also triggers the Free Spins Bonus Game feature if you land 3 or more of them on the same spin. Once active, you’ll receive a payout of 2, 20 or 200 times your stake as well as 10 free spins. These are played out on a new set of reels that come with special expanding symbols. Whenever this randomly selected symbol hits, it will fill the whole of the reel. You can retrigger more free spins here too.
If you don’t fancy waiting to trigger the feature, you’ll be offered the chance to buy your way in via the Buy Free Spins feature. The amount it will cost is shown in the meter above the reels (80 times your stake).
Book of Cleopatra is a simple but very entertaining take on the classic Egyptian-themed slot. Great care has been taken over the sound and visuals which are well done. The gameplay is pretty straightforward but the Free Spins Bonus Game feature offers some serious potential thanks to the expanding symbols. Land a high value expanding symbol and the Book of Cleopatra could help you discover some ancient hidden treasure – up to 5,502 times your stake on each free spin.
