Cleopatra’s Secrets Slot
Cleopatra’s Secrets is an old-timer in a SkillOnNet garage that still looks decent and has quite a few interesting features to offer.
This is one of plenty video slots with Ancient Egyptian theme, there are at least a couple of similar slots in every provider’s portfolio, so you won’t find this one particularly original. As you might assume, there are Old Egyptian gods and hieroglyphs (Egyptian letters) displayed all around.
The game is played at 20 paylines on 5 reels and includes Wild, Bonus and Scatter symbols. There is a pick’em Bonus Game and up to 20 free spins can be achieved.
SkillOnNet knew one thing well when working on this slot – the pictographic letters of the Ancient Egyptians were so adorable that, if you copy-paste them and transfer to a slot game, it is impossible to look bad. And they were right, since Cleopatra’s Secrets doesn’t look too weary, in spite of the time that has passed. The reels are set inside the pharaoh’s tomb with a famous Sphinx monitoring the process from above. Amor, Anubis, Isis, Osiris and other gods and letters represent regular symbols, Bonus symbol is a Pyramid, Wild is a Sphinx and Scatter symbol is represented by Eagle.
The highest jackpot stands at 10,000 coins, and it is gained if an active payline is fully covered with five Golden Eagle symbols. All paylines go left-to-right, starting with the leftmost and you will need at least two matching symbols to claim a win. The game can be played on less than 20 paylines, but on a 5×3 grid like this one, less than 20 is simply not enough. Keep in mind that one coin is wagered for each payline.
There are a few things that can help you reach higher scores in this slot. Beside the standard Wilds that substitute for other symbols, Scatters can be awarding, since they trigger free spins with doubled wins. For 2 Scatters you will get 2 free spins, 3 Scatters = 5 free spins, 4 Scatters = 10 free spins and 5 Scatters = 20 free spins. Your free spins can last a little bit longer, since every Scatter that appears during free spins awards you one additional free spin.
Pick’em Bonus Game that is achieved by collecting Bonus symbols during the main game is SkillOnNet’s trade mark and Cleopatra’s Secrets video slot is not an exception. You need 1,000 bonus points to qualify for Bonus Game and then you will need to guess which Sphinx from the two presented to you contains the treasure. It’s a simple gamble game that goes on until your luck leaves you.
There is nothing very original in Cleopatra’s Secrets video slot: the theme is seen so many times, symbols are copied from Egyptian monuments, free spins and bonus game looks the same as in any other SkillOnNet slot from that time. Yet, the game is still on the market and many gamblers like to play it. There is one question we couldn’t answer: What does all this have to do with Cleopatra and her secrets?
