The original IGT Cleopatra slot machine out of the Vegas Casinos gets the mobile treatment. Revamped and as great as the original game.
This IGT slot will always hold a special place in people’s hearts. There are not a lot of casinos that haven’t had this slot machine on their shop floor at some point, and many, in fact, still do. It’s one of the classic video slots for land-based gambling sites, and gamblers love it. Then Cleopatra 2 came along. And then Cleopatra 3. Each slot is an improvement on the other.
For mobile, we get the original Cleopatra slot game, and we have to say… the ol’ gal didn’t travel well at first, but then IGT released a second version which uplifted the game enough to get us to rewrite this review. And we are oh so glad they did.
For one, this Queen of the Nile now looks stunning as an Android tablet or iPad slot. On a smartphone, it’s nice, but it’s on the bigger screen that the fine details of the design really shine through. From the torn edges of the papyrus to the jewel-encrusted letters and numbers, this mobile slot feels like it can compete against its online counterpart. It also has original sounds that tie the whole slot together in one neat beautiful bow.
That said, Cleopatra video slot was old before she even made her way to the mobile world, so fans of the more complicated games such as Crown of Egypt or Siberian Storm may not remember what it feels like to spin a simple 20 lines bonus game slot.
She spins fast, and the wins come often, but it’s not a thrill a minute. All you have to wait for is the free spins, which overall give decent returns.
That doubling wild really helps, as though the chances of you getting the jackpot of 5 wilds in a row and getting 10,000x your line bet are slim, getting a five symbol win with a wild isn’t that crazy. It brings a few simple thrills to a simple game.
The Cleopatra mobile slot game played well on all the devices we tested, with few to no bugs. It’s a great mobile IGT game for when you are on the move and need a reliable spin or two. She’s a classic, but with so many harder hitting IGT slot games out there, her age shows often enough that many may not see what the fuss is about. Ultimately this slot is all about nostalgia.

Wilds: The Cleopatra logo is the wild symbol, replacing all other symbols except the scatter and bringing with it a 2x multiplier.
Free Spins: 3, 4 or 5 Sphinx scatter symbols in any position on the reels will trigger the Cleopatra free spins bonus. These give you 15 free spins where all wins are tripled, and it is a great bonus game to hit which can give you the big wins of the game. Theoretically, you can re-trigger this feature up to 180 free spins, but we wouldn't put up your hopes too high.
Cleopatra, old friend, when we see you on the casino floor, we will come and see you and take a few spins, reminiscing at what a great land-based machine you are. This still remains a slot machine for those wanting to experience the nostalgia of the slot game itself and, to be honest. We will play chilling in front of the TV with the iPad when we don't need to pay too much attention.
That said, if you are a mid-level better who is just starting out in the world of mobile slots and are happy to try your luck, there are worse machines to learn. With an RTP rate of 95.02%, this video slot won't pay out big often, but when it does, it can give you a potential 10,000x your line bet. Not a bad in-game slot jackpot.
For everyone else, there's Microgaming jackpot slots or IGT's Treasure of Troy mobile slot.
Four stars for nostalgia. Take away a star if you've never heard of this machine before.
