Having Cleopatra as the central figure in the Egyptian-themed slot comes as no surprise and Pragmatic Play’s reentry into the familiar slot scene with Eye of Cleopatra title does not disappoint. Featuring spreading wild with a wild pattern device, the game promises a thrilling journey to the summit prize of 4000x the bet.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Eye of Cleopatra is set against a background of Egyptian architecture coupled with the mystic-sounding soundtrack. The 5 reels, 4 rows, and 20 fixed paylines grid is situated on the left side of the screen while the pattern device sits on the right side. The symbols are drawn beautifully, popping out from the rest are the Premium symbols, which are the snake, the cat, the bird, the Pharaoh, and Queen Cleopatra whose worth are anywhere from 1.25x to 10x the stake for a five-of-a-kind.
Coming from Pragmatic Play, Eye of Cleopatra has a slightly above the studio’s RTP average of 96.5%. While the volatility is high, players should not worry too much while trying to win the maximum prize of 4000x the bet.
The first feature of the game is the Random Wild Pattern feature. On the right side of the screen, there is a circular device with 8 other circular positions. The outer positions will randomly turn blue with each spin. If a wild appears at the same time as the positions turn blue, all the adjacent symbols according to the blue positions at that moment will turn into wilds as well.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when players land at least 3 scatters on a payline. Before the round begins, players can choose 1 from 4 possible bonuses:
- 4 circular positions: 10, 20, or 30 free spins awarded for 3, 4, or 5 scatters
- 6 circular positions: 8, 16, or 24 free spins awarded for 3, 4, or 5 scatters
- 8 circular positions: 6, 12, or 18 free spins awarded for 3, 4, or 5 scatters
- Random circular positions and a random number of free spins are awarded from the options above
During the free spins, the chosen circular positions remain active throughout. The feature is extended by the initial number of free spins with every 3 scatters that land during it.
Last but not least, players can go for the Ante Bet option. With a 25% increase in the stake, the chance of scoring free spins is increased by 100%.
The game doesn't really stand out aesthetically but I have to give it points for its eye-catching visuals. The gameplay itself is good. As a free spins fan, I appreciate the game's focus on Free Spins. Being able to choose the type of bonus round you want to play is making the game more flexible and appealing. Overall, it’s a good game that I will happily keep returning to in the future.
