Cleocatra Pragmatic Play Slots
Pragmatic Play has been busy producing games lately, and they all have interesting themes. I love watching slot game developers try new things, and Pragmatic Play is without a doubt one of the most innovative software developers making online slots in 2022. Cleocatra is an online slot released on May 26, 2022. It has an egyptian feel to it. ancient with modern graphics. The game uses 40 paylines, has an RTP of 96.2%, and a maximum win of up to 5,000x your bet.
The Cleocatra slot game includes a respin feature that is triggered whenever a full vertical stack of cat symbols appears on the first reel. There is also a free spins based bonus round which is triggered by collecting three or more scatters during the base game.
We recommend you to try our free Cleocatra demo slot before playing the game for real money. This slot game is also quite interesting just for a little fun!
Cleocatra Themes and Payments
Cleopatra has become a character that is often found in dozens of online slots such as Eye of Cleopatra developed by Pragmatic Play, or Secrets of Cleopatra from PG Soft. Even Cleopatra-themed slots are still very popular in land-based casinos. The use of the play on the word “Cleocatra” is quite funny in my eyes. In this slot you can find the shining Egypt theme, but all the high paying symbols have been changed to the cat based pharaoh version which is usually featured in the Cleopatra theme online slot.
The elegant Cleocatra symbol is at the top of the payout list, returning 20x your stake for every 5 symbols collected. He is followed by his bodyguard symbol which returns 12.5x for 5 symbols in a row, then there is the skinless cat symbol which returns 7.5x the stake and the tabby which pays out 5x your bet. These payouts aren’t huge, but the large number of paylines along with stacked symbols and wild symbols sometimes including multipliers of up to 3x all combined can make for a game that can sometimes pay out some of the biggest wins.
For large bet settings, Pragmatic Play continues to use the same complex settings as before, Coin value which can range between one and ten, and “Coin Value” which can be set between one penny and fifty cents. Under these controls, you will see the “Total Bet” section which is updated when you change the bet and coin value controls. The problem is that you can easily change your total bet using the buttons to the left and right of this section, making the bet and coin value controls a bit overwhelming. The minimum and maximum bet is IDR 200 to IDR 1200,000 per spin.
Features and How to Play Cleocatra Slots
Play with 5 reels, 40 paylines and win up to 5,000x your stake in Cleocatra Pragmatic Play online slot. The base game is played on a slightly enlarged 5×4 playing field, leaving plenty of room for the game’s 40 fixed paylines. I felt as though the game could use a few more pay lines when I tested the slots; I regularly end up with combinations on the screen that I feel should result in a win, but I receive nothing.
During the base game, a vertical stack full of cat symbols that land on the first reel will activate the respin feature. When this happens, all wild and cat symbols of the same breed will become permanent during the respin.
Whenever another matched cat lands on the screen, it will also settle down and stay where it is until the end of the respin feature. The process will continue until you manage to get at least one winning combination that includes the stacked cat symbol on the first reel.
Basically, you want lots of cats to appear on reels three to five before anything lands on the second reel and eventually joins the winning combination. You might end up with just one payline of winning symbols, or you could end up with something close to full screen.
I love the fact that you never know what will happen with this bonus round. I honestly believe that this is one of the best base game changers I’ve seen in a long time. Good job, Pragmatic Play!
Free Spins Features
Land 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols seen during the base game in the Cleocatra video slot and the free spins feature will be triggered. Hitting three, four, or five scatter symbols during the base game will earn you eight, twelve, or sixteen free spins, respectively. I managed to hit the four scatters a few times during the test, although to be expected I never hit all five as such occurrences are almost always very rare, so I’m not surprised by this.
During your free spins, all wild symbols appearing on reels two through five will become sticky and stay in place during the free spins round. I’m not sure why they excluded the first reel from this – the most likely explanation is that the vertical stack of cat symbols can still land on the first reel during the free spins feature. When this happens, the game will add two free spins to your remaining counter.
Finally, the best part about this bonus round is that wild symbols that get sticky still feature the 2x or 3x multipliers they did during the base game. If you’re really lucky and land a ton of 3x wild multipliers on the screen, you’re sure to get some big wins out of every remaining spin.
The only problem, of course, is that the game cuts into your bonus round if you manage to hit more than 5,000x your current bet. I never set this up during testing, but with the number of wild multipliers I’ve seen popping up during this feature, I feel very confident that hitting 5,000x your bet will be easy when playing the Cleocatra slot.
Just to mention, if you want to skip the base game and head straight for the feature, the game does include a bonus purchase option at a cost of 100x your current bet. Many jurisdictions have banned this feature, something many gamblers feel is overreaching by regulators – why don’t we have fast spins, auto spins and bonus buy options? Apparently, it’s to protect us from ourselves. Did you know, UKGC? I can take care of myself. Stop messing with our slots!
Cleocatra’s Conclusion and Review
Cleocatra is not a complicated game. This is one of Pragmatic Play’s online slots that anyone can play, enjoy and win. I really enjoyed testing this game and can’t wait to see what Pragmatic Play has in store for us in the future.
There are some features taken from other slots, for example the Respin Feature is almost similar to Great Rhino, while the sticky wild feature comes from The Dog House slot. With these two features and coupled with more paylines, you will get a more theoretically satisfying playing sensation from Cleocatra than in The Dog House.
