Take a trip through the theme of Ancient Egypt as you embark on an epic journey to find the lost treasure of Cleopatra in Riches of Cleopatra, the visually impressive slot machine game from Playson.
While Playson is often regarded as a developer that doesn't worry too much about graphic design and instead focuses on gameplay and bonus features, this game marks an interesting change of pace. There are plenty of arresting images and beautiful sites in this game. But don't worry, this hasn't come at the expense of the gameplay, as the rather impressive range of winnings available in this game demonstrates.
Quite a few regular users of Playson slot machine games may be a little surprised to see the visual beauty that this game has to offer. From the shimmering desert wasteland at the bottom of the screen to the cloudless and bright blue sky, everything looks worthy of visual attention. This is before you even turn to the design of the reels themselves, which look like they have been carved centuries ago by the Egyptians themselves.
The symbols in the game also add a nice touch of Egyptian mysticism to the whole experience. The hieroglyphics and the image of Cleopatra herself all help bring Ancient Egypt back to life right in your computer or on your tablet screen.
The truly great thing about this game is the range of symbols. While they are all quite impressive to look at, they also have tremendous value as well. The letter and number symbols are the lowest value symbols on offer, but even they are worth up to 125 coins if you are able to get five of them in a line.
The two hieroglyphics symbols in the game also have quite a lot of value as well. Just four of them can get you up to 75 coins, which is quite an impressive win. Five of them in a line though will give you a massive win worth 250 coins. It's well worth playing just to see if you can get them, even though they are not even the most valuable symbols on the reels.
The beetle and the sphinx cat are also worth quite a lot. Four of these symbols in a line will give you 100 coins, while five of the beetle symbols will give you 400 coins and five of the sphinx cats are worth a massive 700 coins. While these are worth a lot, that is nothing compared to the symbol of Cleopatra herself. She is the wild symbol in the game, but she also carries a tremendous amount of value. Just three in a row will give you 300 coins, while four will see you upgrade to a massive 2,000 coins. That's nothing compared though to the huge 10,000 coins you get for five in a row. While it's unlikely you will get five of the Cleopatra symbols in a line, it's well worth trying when you consider how much you could win.
If you want to be able to get your hands on some really impressive prizes to present to Cleopatra, then you should try and get three of the scatter symbols to fall on the reels at the same time. When this happens you will be given an impressive 15 free spins to play with. The scatter symbol in this game is a picture of an Egyptian with the word scatter written underneath it. Make sure you search for them, as you never know when you may be in luck.
Not only does this give you 15 free spins, but it also gives you more than that. During your free spins, you will also be given a 3x multiplier on all of your winnings. This means that while you are playing in this game mode, you have a real chance to make some substantial winnings. This is especially true if you are able to get some symbols in lines of five. You can always try and win more spins with the scatter symbols as well during this bonus round.
With such a large amount of coins on offer in this game, you have the ability to earn enough riches to please even Cleopatra herself. There are some massive potential wins available in this game, along with some free spins to help you along the way. Throw in the impressive visual style of the game and you have a real all rounder of a slot machine game. Well worth playing just for the experience, even if not as popular as the many games in play-n-go's Ra series such as Riches of Ra.
