Cleocatra is a Pragmatic Play video slot with 5×4 reels and 40 paylines.
Leading developer Pragmatic Play takes you on a quick cat detour. We’re heading off to ancient Egypt again to celebrate the cat.
We’re not talking about lions, but the simple house cat. The ancient Egyptians venerated the cat so much, that they even named a god after them, Bastet.
Besides, they also saw the cat as the harbinger of good fortune. The visual side of Cleocatra slot is for lack of a better word, cute.
If you’re a cat lover you’ll find the game art smashing. We might add, with a touch of humour as well.
Pragmatic Play further mixes up the action with Respins, Free Spins, and Sticky Wilds.
There’s a Buy Option too for a quick dive into the Free Spins.
Cleocatra offers real money slots players a jackpot of 5,000x the stake. Throw in the max bet of $100, you’re looking at $500,000 on a single spin.
Note, there are RTP ranges as low as 94.50% at the top real money online casinos.
The RTP of Cleocatra is 96.20% which is well within the range of the industry’s average.
However, like the majority of the online slot games today. Cleocatra has RTP ranges that drop to 94.50%.
The volatility packs a 10’er on the Whizz’s slots scale. Despite all the cute stuff going on, this is one kitty with razor-sharp claws!
Betsoft Gaming just released a new slot titled Gemini Joker. The leading studio infuses it with colorful and vibrant game art.
For bonus rounds Free Respin, Twin Wild Symbols, and Multiplier Wheel.
Oh, and the jackpot you be playing at online casinos in the United States is 1,700x.
Let’s take a closer look at those kitty cats. The pyramids and the majestic Nile serve as the backdrop for the reels.
The high-value symbols are the cats. Next in line are the ankh, crook, and flail, multiplier wild and the pawprint scatter.
The values of the premiums range from 5x to 20x the stake for 5. Whilst the low-value cards from 10 to Ace pay up to 1.5x for 5.
To circle back to the wild quickly. It only pops on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5 and subs symbols when it forms a winning combo.
The wild carries multipliers values of 2x, or 3x.
You’ll catch a respin when a stack of cat symbols pitch on the first reel. The matching cat symbols remain whilst they offer a respin.
The respin feature continues as long as the cat symbols land.
To trigger the money pot or the Free Spins feature of Cleocatra. You need 3, 4, or 5 paw scatters.
Depending on the scatters that land; they award 8, 12, and 16 free spins.
There’s another interesting thing going on in the free spins. When the wild appears, it remains sticky until the free spin feature ends.
More importantly, the wilds boost wins with a 2x or 3x multiplier. A full stack of cat symbols on the leftmost reel drops additional free spins.
If you have enough cash to spare and you’re looking for a quick ‘big hit.
You can use the Buy Option to purchase free spins for a fee of 100x your stake.
The number of free spins you’ll receive depends on the scatters.
On our third attempt using the feature buy option, we struck it rich.
We managed a sensational win of $40,000 at the maximum wager of $100 per spin. The cat got the proverbial cream here.
Now, the first two buy options paid $2,500 and $1,750, as you can see, no good. Taking into account that every pop costs $10,000.
Upon conclusion of our free slots session; we showed a ‘tidy profit of around $17,000’.
The moral of the story here is two things. Test the slot with free credits, and test the buy option a few times.
As a parting shot, you’re more likely to score 8 free spins 80% of the time.
From ancient Egypt to online slots, kitties have come a long way since then. Pragmatic Play not only nails the theme but just about everything else that comes with it.
Cleocatra strongly resembles 3 Tiny Gods. Yet, Forxium outscores Pragmatic Play in terms of originality.
The slots studio also ‘borrowed’ the sticky wild feature from the likes of The Dog House.
The difference however with Cleocatra is that those sticky wilds pitch on the fifth reel; and not on the middle 3 reels only.
As we move on to the free spins the potential is 5,000x your stake which is cool.
To be honest, we would have liked a bigger multiplier other than the 3x max for the sticky wilds.
Luckily it all checks out in the end. Even the great Cleopatra will give it a nod as a worthy namesake.
Despite a few glitches such as the RTP ranges and the volatility. Cleocatra comes in bright and fresh. No matter which way we look at it, the slot always lands on its feet.
Just like the cat!
