Here’s a look at Cleopatra’s Chest, as Anthony might have said. Exploring all of the aspects of the game that you’ll be interested in.
There’s nothing all that exceptional about Cleopatra’s Chest, with the only noteworthy aspect of the game being the ability to win money for matching symbols.
If you match three or more symbols across the reels then you’ll receive some winnings. How much you’ll get depends entirely on how many symbols you match, which symbols they are and what the amount that you’ve staked is. The male Egyptian head is the best one to land, with five symbols resulting in your sake being multiplied by fifty-seven and a half thousand.
Cleopatra’s Progressive Jackpot
As soon as you start playing this game, keep your fingers crossed that you’ll see some Cleopatra symbols landing on your active lines. Find five of them and you’ll be winning a percentage of the progressive jackpot. How large that percentage is depends entirely on your stake. A 10p stake, for example, will payout two percent of the jackpot, moving all the way up to a one hundred percent payout for a stake of £5.
Gameplay & RTP
As we mentioned in the introduction, the Return To Player on this game is 93%. That’s what you’d euphemistically refer to as ‘acceptable’ rather than spectacular. It’s a perfectly fine amount, but the are many games with an improved RTP and several with a significantly better one. It’s never a good idea to base your decision of whether to play a game entirely around the RTP, however. After all, even games with an RTP of 88% have a jackpot that’s won by someone at some point. Instead you’ll want to consider whether or not the overall game play and style is to your taste.
On that front, Cleopatra’s Chest is at least consistent in its choices. The game screen appears to be placed in front of a pyramid, with leaves from exotic plants spilling in from the top. It’s a game filled with colour and vibrancy, though you can make your own mind up about whether or not that’s a good thing or makes sense with the story of the game. Down the two sides of the main game are the line numbers, stood inside multi-coloured pyramids.
The game symbols don’t have a huge amount of personality, looking instead like the sort of thing you might find in a children’s book about Egypt. The Eye of Ra, the head of Anubis, Pharaoh, a snake and, of course, Cleopatra herself all make an appearance. The problem is that the lack of bonus games means that it’s all a bit ‘meh’. You obviously want enough of the symbols to land to mean that you’ve won some money, but really it’s Cleopatra or nothing as far as the big bucks are concerned. The reels spin smoothly enough and if there’s a chance that you’re going to hit a winning line then the tension mounts a little, but all-in-all it’s a game that is found wanting because of it’s lack of internal features.
