As mentioned, ancient Egypt is the setting for this slot. The relative simplicity of Cleopatra’s Crown is brought to the user with no-nonsense graphics and clear, well sized symbols. The backdrop provides a slightly blurred vision of the Giza pyramids at sunset yet the grid and symbols are clear, colourful and well-proportioned. The slot’s symbols are also traditionally Egyptian including a red and gold piece of jewellery, Pharaoh’s staff, a cat statue, scarab, ankh and a fan. Special symbols include Cleopatra, who acts an expanding wild symbol and the pyramids are the scatter symbol. Background Egyptian music compliments the overall ambience of the slot.
The slot is packed full of bonus features that can help you on the way towards the biggest possible payouts.
During the base game Cleopatra has the potential to turn into an expanding symbol. To compliment a combination of symbols, excluding the wild symbol, Cleopatra will expand to fill the whole reel to hopefully complete a win.
For you to access the main free spin bonus feature, you will need to land three or more pyramid scatter symbols across the reels. This will grant you 12 free spins during which you will not be able to alter your stake or the number of paylines.
During the free spins feature Cleopatra is once again on hand as a wild card that forms part of an upgrade feature. The higher value symbols will be displayed across the top of the reels in order from the lowest value multiplier symbol on the left, to the highest multiplier symbol on the right. Each time Cleopatra lands there will be a symbol type that will be removed from the reels. For example, all Ankhs will turn into higher value scarabs and not return to the reels during the remaining free spins. If Cleopatra lands again all scarabs will turn into cats and so on. One additional bonus is that Cleopatra will grant you an additional free spin each time she lands during the free spins.
There are two gamble features in the base game. They are only available for lower value wins. The maximum payout available with the gamble features is €150.
In the Ladder gamble, players have the chance to work their way up the rungs of a ladder and increase the winnings as they go. However, if the gamble is unsuccessful it can lead to a partial or total loss of the initial win. At each stage, the gamble feature highlights the value of the potential win or loss. There is also an option to collect half of the initial base game win or the gamble win and continue to gamble with the remaining pot.
The Card gamble also gives players the chance to improve upon their win, only this time the gamble is on guessing the colour of the face down card at the top of the deck. After picking a colour, the top card is revealed and if players have chosen correctly then the payout is doubled. Selecting the wrong colour results in the gambled money being lost. Similar to the Ladder gamble, there is an option to collect half of the base game win or gamble win and then continue to gamble with the remaining pot. Both the ladder and card gamble have a maximum win limit and as such, they may not be available upon a big win in the base game.

How to Play
Cleopatra’s Crown is an easy to play slot. Before spinning the reels, all the player needs to do is set their total bet per spin and how many paylines they want to play using the control buttons beneath the reels. If using 10 paylines the total bet should be divided by 10 to calculate the individual payline bet.
