Cleopatra Online Slots: A Short History
International Gaming Technology’s Cleopatra-themed interactive online slot is deemed one of the most popular online slots of all time. Based in the United States of America, IGT has been at the helm in the development, design, production, sales and distribution of gaming machines (1975) and online/mobile gaming solutions (2005). One of the top slot games in IGT’s string of land-based games is the Cleopatra-themed slot machine played in top casinos in Las Vegas and Macau. Its popularity prodded IGT to create an online version when the company ventured into partnership with several online casinos.
IGT’s first Cleopatra venture in the world of online gaming is an e-version of the brick and mortar Cleopatra slot. The online version is a standard 20-payline slot with 15 free spins as a bonus feature. The low-risk equates to its not-so-great returns but, there are times when a larger hit was won by some lucky e-gamers.
Cleopatra II is a sequel to the first Cleopatra online slot. This version’s graphics and sounds are better tuned than the first and is made more interesting with a different bonus round. Instead of the 15 free spins, a player has the option to pick a box from a group of three which could present a player from 6 free spins to 15. The added bonus feature is that for every spin, the multiplier increases and can very well re-trigger the free spins up to 50. So a 50x multiplier is a possibility with Cleopatra II. This online slot’s variance is quite high so “fruitless” streaks in between great winnings are bound to happen.
Cleopatra Mega Jackpot
IGT in conjunction with Wager Works has created another Cleopatra sequel – Cleopatra Mega Jackpot. This online slot provides incredible winnings to its players through connected progressive jackpot networks. All players connected through the Mega Jackpots network contribute to the “pot” and one lucky winner gets them all. Jackpot could reach a staggering £2 million!
Other Cleopatra-theme online slots from other software providers followed suit such as Cleopatra’s Gold, Cleopatra’s Pyramid, Cleopatra’s Secret, and Treasures of Cleopatra. Developed by such software providers as Real Time Gaming, these games can be enjoyed by players from the US and around the globe. Other online slot titles derived from the same theme are Queen of the Nile I and II, Book of Ra and Pharaoh’s Fortune.
