Egyptian-themed slot games are not uncommon and Cleopatra, being one of the most famous Egyptians of all time, often features heavily in those games. The original Cleopatra’s Pyramid slot machine was hugely popular and WGS Technology have now decided to cash in on that popularity by coming out with Cleopatras Pyramid II slot machine. The Egyptian-themed slot game is largely similar to the original with the addition of a few new bonus features and some jazzy new graphics.
The backdrop to this game is different to the original but still Egyptian-themed of course. The backdrop is a pyramid, naturally, etched with hieroglyphics. The higher-value reel symbols are also different from the original but still in-keeping with the overall theme.
Expect scarabs, ankhs, canine headdresses and the mystical eye of Horus. Somewhat unexpectedly, the scarab is the highest value symbol and can land you wins of a thousand coins or more for at least two of them scurrying across your paylines. The lower value symbols are playing card symbols that range from 9 through to Ace.
The features of this game are at first glance pretty standard: wilds, scatters and free spins.
It is Cleopatra herself who is the wild. She can stand in for any standard symbol to net additional wins for you. If the wilds are stacked on the middle three reels, that can potentially lead to multiple big wins across multiple paylines.
You need to spin in five Cleopatras to land the 5,000 coin jackpot. WGS Technology have included two different bonuses with this game, a Pick Em Bonus and a Free Spins Bonus Round.
To trigger either of the bonuses you need to spin in at least three of the Pyramid scatter symbols. Land any of them and you will bag a certain amount of cash. Land three of them and you will trigger the first bonus which will be either the Pick Em or the Free Spins Bonus Round. They launch alternatively each time you trigger the bonus.
In the Pick Em game, you simply select blocks from a pyramid that will then reveal either a cash prize or a mummy. The game continues up the pyramid until you either hit the top or come across a mummy. It’s an engaging little game.
In the Free Spins Bonus Round, you get ten free spins that are played on reels similar to the base game but slightly different colored.
