Tales of Cleopatra's greatness and beauty are legendary. Playson is honouring the irresistible ruler with their Legend of Cleopatra slot. You’ve been summoned by the Ptolemaic queen; will you answer her graceful call?
Legend of Cleopatra comes with 6 Reels and pyramid-based rows. Playson has been fairly fond of this format, as it is seen on some other titles of theirs like Rome: Caesar's Glory. Theme-wise Legend of Cleopatra resembles classic Ancient Egypt slot, but it would not be fair to throw it in the same bag, as the atmosphere and the setting sets a slightly different tone. Let us see if this slot is as great as Cleopatra herself.
Legend of Cleopatra Review
6 Reels with pyramid rows
Game Layout: 6 Reels with pyramid rows Release date: 24th of January 2018
Design and Payout System
Legend of Cleopatra visually is very inviting, we are not just talking about the spicy start screen, but the overall feel of it is very tranquil. It is a beautiful bathhouse with luxurious style pillars and purple flowers across the floor. We cannot let the visuals cloud our judgement of course, as there are many other aspects to take into consideration.
Staying on the topic of visuals - Legend of Cleopatra symbols are also well made. We do have our textbook royals, all equally valued, besides the 10, which is the sole lowest pay symbol. Upper-tier picture symbols feature a statue of an eagle, cat, and a dog/wolf. Two of the highest value symbols from the regulars are Cleopatra herself and a 'Legend of Cleopatra' symbol. Legend of Cleopatra also provides a Wild symbol.
Payout is the part where roads get a bit bumpy - quite frankly, the payouts on Legend of Cleopatra are not all that grand. If you are familiar with some Playson games, then you will not be surprised to see volatility being medium-high. It is probably their most used volatility setting. The irregular game layout ensures 100 different ways to win. These paylines are flipped during the bonus game, as the game layout turns to the other side as well. What makes the Legend of Cleopatra bumpy is the RTP and max payout. The Legend of Cleopatra RTP of 95.05% is quite low. It is not the end of the world low, but definitely lower than the average. The same goes for the max win, 500x is a great win to have, but the fact that the slot does not go higher can be displeasing.
Legend of Cleopatra Bonus Features
We’ve made clear that the visuals are top-class and payouts are slightly off, but what is the situation with bonus features you might ask. Though to say, we will take a look, and you be the judge. There are two bonus features on Legend of Cleopatra.
One of the features is randomly triggered during the main game – it is called the Double Wild Reel. Once you land a full reel with Wild symbols, the game randomly covers another reel with wilds. The two ensured wild reels can make up for some ridiculous combination lineups. It’s a very simple feature, but also very effective.
The other Legend of Cleopatra feature simply goes by the name of Bonus. There are three ways that this bonus can begin - 3, 4, 5 scatters respectively award 5, 10, or 15 Free Spins. For 3 scatters 5 spins may seem unfair, but keep in mind that it’s not too hard to land extra scatters, that award extra spins, 2 scatters give 2 extra spins, 3 give 5, 4 give 10 and 5 give 15. The total limit is 50 Free Spins. As stated, the reels flip to the other side, this leads to an increased chance of landing additional wins. The Double Wild Reel feature also is present, so you are given all the necessary tools to score impressive combinations on Legend of Cleopatra.
Legend of Cleopatra is a nice tribute to the godly ruler, but it does have some minor setbacks. The visual department did a spot on the job on this slot, Legend of Cleopatra is a real eye-candy. As you can guess, the payouts are the part where Legend of Cleopatra lacks that vigorosity we’ve seen on other Egyptian powerhouses. Bonus features are simple, but they create good opportunities to make some quick bucks. All in all, this is not the best release we’ve seen from Playson, but it’s a good slot, that should provide good hours of entertainment.
