There’s plenty of treasure to find in Ancient Egypt, you only have to go searching through the ruins and buried temples and pyramids to come across gold and jewels from centuries ago. It seems as though Cleopatra may have been the owner of much of this treasure, or so this Rival Gaming slot would have us believe. The Cleopatra’s Coins game takes you back in time to the age of the Ancient Egyptians and the civilisations last ruler.
While the graphics in this slot game aren’t the greatest, that could have something to do with the time period that it was created in. You see, this Rival Gaming slot was launched in 2006, so it’s had several years of wear and tear. That being said, the symbols and other graphics are at least clear to understand. To begin with, the reels play host to five symbols of hieroglyphics, with each one a different colour. You’ll also see a symbol of Cleopatra herself, then another one of Marc Antony and a third of Julius Caesar (two of Cleopatra’s Roman lovers). The last standard symbol’s in this game are that of the pyramids and sphinx.
You’ll see that Cleopatra’s Coins takes place on a standard video slot interface of five reels and three rows in total. Rival Gaming has made sure to add a set of 15 pay lines into the slot, but you have the option of adjusting the active amount of these by utilising the “Select Lines” button below the reels. You can also customise the value of your wager, first of all by choosing a coin value between 1p and £1. Then, choose the number of coins you’d like in action per line between one and five to reach a maximum wager possibility of £75 per spin.
The theme of Ancient Egypt is often associated with the scarab beetle. In this game, it is the scarab beetle that operates as the wild addition to the reels. As a wild, this one will substitute for all other symbols within the game, except for the scatter icons.
If you manage to spin five of the wild symbol into view on a winning pay line, then you will see your bet multiplied by a total of 5,000x.
The gold coin is the symbol which will trigger the slot’s bonus round. At least three of these need to appear on the reels for the bonus round to begin, and when it does, Cleopatra will give you the chance to smash various urns.
A new screen displays these and whenever you smash one a reward is given to you. The total number of urn smashes that you get is directly determined by the number of gold coins present on the slot’s reels when it triggers.
Something else associated with Cleopatra is the deadly asp, which can be seen on this game’s reels as its free spins scatter symbol. You’ll need to ensure that at least three of this one come into view anywhere in order for the free spins round to start.
If you spin three of them into view you’ll get 10 free spins; four of them will grant you access to 20 free spins; and five of the free spins scatter symbol gives you a total of 100 free spins as a reward. During this feature round, all winning combinations come with a triple multiplier attached to them.
It’s always nice to see online slot games that take an overused theme and give it new life. Rival Gaming may have been one of the first to create a game surrounding Ancient Egypt way back in 2006, and it still stands out as being different to the rest. The bonus round makes it more entertaining, while the familiar inclusion of free spins and a wild symbol also bring extra appeal to Cleopatra’s Coins.
