Pragmatic Play is no stranger to Egyptian-themed slots as the company has been churning out these games almost periodically for as long as one can remember. Queen of Gods is not a different case. Although the concept is quite unorthodox, combining Cleopatra, the famous royalty, with deities like Anubis and Sobek, the game provides a somewhat fresh take on the age-old theme. Whatever the case, players should look forward to winning the maximum prize of 1,839x the stake.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Queen of Gods features a background filled with ornamented pillars and Egyptian symbols as well as two kneeling jackal-headed figures holding golden canes. Coupled with a classic soundtrack, it couldn't be closer to the theme it's trying to convey. Coming from Pragmatic Play, players can expect symbols to be represented clearly. Indeed, the Premium symbols stand out from the rest as Ra, Anubis, Sobek, and Cleopatra pay anywhere from 10x to 20x the stake for a 5-of-a-kind.
Queen of Gods plays on a 5 reels, 3 rows grid with 10 paylines. The RTP is at a standard 96.38% while the game has a high volatility rating, standing at a 4 out of 5. Players will soon realize the game fires up the free spins slightly more than usual. This minuscule effect might have a domino effect on winning the jackpot of 1839x the stake.
Wilds can land on reels 2, 3, or 4 only and help replace any symbol that is not a scatter. And to make things even more interesting - they usually come in a stack. Wilds have no value on their own and are only there to help players create a winning combination.
Landing at least 3 Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 triggers the Special Free Spins Feature. Players immediately get rewarded 5x the stake and they are presented 4 options to choose from:
- 8 Free Spins and 3x multiplier Wilds
- 11 Free Spins and 2x multiplier Wilds
- 15 Free Spins and 1x multiplier Wilds
- Randomized mystery options
While the Special Feature remains active, only four Premium symbols are presented on the grid as all other symbols are removed from the screen. Unfortunately, the feature cannot be retriggered.
To be completely honest, the game could use more bonus features. Still, I do find the bonus game exciting, as the number of Free Spins provided is decent and the multiplier is not bad either. It doesn't take me long to reach the bonus round and I do get some good hits in the base game from time to time. Sadly, the max win is not impressive. Overall, it has decent gameplay but nothing earth-shattering.
