The Cleopatra’s Golden Spells slot has 5×6 reels with avalanching wins, cluster pays, and special cash symbols that could see you win as much as 6,500x your bet in the free spin bonus.
This is a beautiful-looking video slot. You are sitting in Cleopatra’s bath house, surrounded by the richness of all that ancient Egypt has to offer. The high-paying symbols are Horus, Bastet, ruby, emerald, and sapphire – the rest are boring grey Ace to J, which pay very little.
Cleopatra’s Golden Spells slot is a high variance Microgaming game with an RTP of 96.18% and with a decent betting range of 0.10 to 20 a spin. Symbols pay when 3 touch horizontally or vertically, exploding to leave more room for more symbols to fall behind.
It should make for a fast-based slot game, but it’s the Bazillion Cash feature, where you can see actual money fall down the reels and into your basket and your wallet. But as with the Wild Link Cleopatra slot, this is all about catching those free spin bonuses.
You can spin away 100 spins on Cleopatra’s Golden Spells and not realise that the paytable symbols were even there.
Why? Because the only feature that really matters is the golden or blue cash symbols. When they land on the reels, they fall down one row at a time, until they completely fall off the screen.
If they fall in the water, nothing happens. You collect the cash amount if they fall on the basket that moves one reel at a time. It’s a frustrating little basket that always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Thankfully Cleopatra can show up from time to time and add a whole load of cash symbols and even multipliers that you could catch. She shows up often, but that basket can still feel like it’s working against you.
Catch 3 scatters in this Cleopatra’s Golden Spells mobile slot, and you never quite know what you will get. The pyramid of fortune will turn and determine if you have a great or miserable time, as it will pick how many spins and (more importantly) how many baskets you get at the bottom of the screen.
If you catch four, you’ll finally be happy because the odds of catching those multipliers and cash symbols become almost guaranteed. The multipliers work a little differently, however, in that when you catch a cash symbol, the multiplier on the screen will then be applied to the win.
Despite a potentially large top win, this Cleopatra’s Golden Spells online slot is a little too frustrating to be fun for long, mostly because the paytable is mostly deocoration next to the cash symbols.
It does have four in-game jackpots, which can trigger random and get you 250x your bet, but that just makes us want to play on the Mega Moolah slots and get a proper prize by the end of it.
Not a bad real money slot machine to find at Microgaming casinos, but one that will be forgotten soon enough.

Wild: The purple wild will replace any other symbol on the reels to create a win.
Cluster Pays: A cluster is paid when 3 or more matching symbols land horizontally or vertically next to each other.
Bazillion Cash Feature: Land a golden or blue cash symbol to trigger the bazillion cash bonus feature. On each spin, the cash symbol will move a row lower. When a win is formed below the cash symbol, the symbol will move down the reel. The number of positions moved equals the number of symbols involved in the winning combination.
The cash value can increase on each move down the reels. You get the cash prizes when it reaches row 6 and falls into the basket. If it's not in the basket, it doesn't count.
Cleopatra's Spell: Land a Cleopatra symbol on the topmost right position on reel 5 to trigger this feature. This symbol will stay there for 3-7 spins and randomly trigger the appearance of multipliers or golden cash symbols.
Much like the cash feature, the cash feature falls down off row 6, you'll get the cash prize, but if you still have a multiplier on the reel, it will be multiplied by that amount.
The multiplier values are x1, x2, x3, x4 and x5.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 Pyramid free spins will trigger up to 12 free spins with up to four baskets, up to 3x initial cash symbols, and many multipliers. But first, you spin the pyramid of fortune, which assign random extras like:
If you land a free spin symbol, you trigger an additional free spin. Extra free spins will be granted until all cash symbols are removed from the reels.
The stone scarab symbol replaces the free spins symbols during the free spins - it's a non-paying symbol.
Cleopatra Jackpot: Randomly trigger the jackpot bonus when she is on the reels. You'll then win one of four in-game jackpots.
Just match 3 jackpot symbols to win one of the jackpots as you pick from 12 tiles.
With a top win of 6,300x your bet, this Cleopatra's Golden Spells slot has plenty to recommend it, even if you might as well throw away the paytable.
The only symbols that matter are the cash symbols, the multipliers, and those baskets at the bottom of the screen. If you are lucky enough to get more of these in the free spins, so much the better.
We weren't that impressed with it, to begin with, but we did win over 200x our bet on a good free spins round. Unsurprisingly this Microgaming slot review gained an extra star, reminding us that even we can be bought.
Review by Lucky Mobile Slots, last updated: August 3, 2022 - Rating
The theoretical return to player rate is 96.18%, which is above average for casino slots online.
The most you can win on the Cleopatra's Golden Spells slot is 6,300x your total stake which at min bet of 0.10 per spin is 630 and at max bet of 20 per spin is 126,000. You can also win up to 250x your bet in the Cleopatra Jackpot.
Cleopatra's Golden Spells is a high variance slot machine, which thanks to the cluster pays offers some frequent small wins, but the big wins and maximum win is hard to find.
