Where to play?
Cleo’s Wish from NextGen Gaming is a 25 payline, 5 reel high variance video slot with 3 Free Spin features, 3 bonus modes that are triggered randomly during the main game along with a Guaranteed Wild Reels feature where you can get up to 5 reels fully stocked with wilds! In total there are 6 in-play bonus games!
The top non-progressive jackpot that can be won on a single spin is 500 coins. To say the least it’s a busy slots with cartoonlike visuals teeming with in-play bonus features and it’s based on the legendary queen Cleopatra. Unfortunately things didn’t end well for her, if you’re a history buff like us you can read more about her colourful yet tragic life on this page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleopatra). Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see the pyramids, Sphinx and the majestic Nile river.
The RTP or average return to player percentage offered by Cleo’s Wish is 95.8%. Bets per spin start off with 30 pence up to £60. Symbols on the reels are Cleopatra, scarab beetles, ankhs, bracelets, Cleo’s Wish logo, 9 cards and cards from 10 to Ace. The wild is Cleopatra, 5 of them across a payline at the maximum wager pays 500 coins. Winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes symbols adjacent to it except the scatters.
The usual customization options such as Auto Play, Max Bet, Audio and graphics settings can be used to adjust game play. It’s best to play the game with all 25 paylines activated. The reason for this is simple, you want to gain the maximum payout on every single spin.
Sands of Fortune
During the base game players can sink their teeth into 3 bonus modes. The first one is the Sands of Fortune feature, when a scarab, ankh or bracelet appears they’re transformed into the same symbol – payoffs can be huge.
Guaranteed Wild Reels
Wild reels can pitch on any reel. The Guaranteed Wild Reels feature is just like the name implies, up to 5 reels can be transformed into Guaranteed Wilds. The potential for some big wins here is quite spectacular, it’s also one of our favourite features of the game.
Cleo’s Wish is kitted with 2 impressive free spins features. Both of them are triggered by 3 or more pyramid scatters regardless of their position on the reels. This is not all, for your trouble you’ll receive a cash prize of 125 coins for 3 or more scatters! A new screen opens up presenting you with a choice between the Cleo’s Parade or the Eternal Riches free spins feature (pick one).
Cleo’s Parade Free Spins
During this feature the stacked wilds rule the roost (appears on the 5th reel), they (stacked wilds) move one reel to the left with each free spin. Should another 3 scatters pitch not only will the feature be re-triggered, extra freebies will be awarded with stacked wilds. When the last stack of wilds reach reel 1 the free spin feature ends.
Eternal Riches Free Spins
This free spins feature gives you between 5 to 10 free spins, wilds (up to 3) along with a Super Wild Multiplier making this free spins feature more lucrative than the previous ones. Hit 3 or more scatters you’ll re-trigger the feature pocketing extra free spins again.
Upon conclusion of the free spins, the Super Free Spins feature is triggered. This is an interesting free spins bonus because the amount of free spins awarded depends on the ‘Spin Meter’ and the ‘Win Multiplier Number’. The free spins can be re-triggered should another 3 or more scatters pop up on the reels.
Of all the ancient Egyptian themed slots we’ve played this is one of our favourites. It’s flushed with free spins and a Guaranteed Wild Reel feature that adds a truckload of wilds to the reels. Of the free spins features the Super Spins is the most lucrative, you can win 1,200x your line bet on a single free spin! Just when we thought ancient Egyptian slots is a ‘washed up’ theme this one comes along – it’s a great slots with even better bonus features! Furthermore, look out for those stacked wilds during the free spins.
