The Queen of Nile is back! And this time, she brings even bigger multi-million riches. Time to rediscover the MegaJackpots Cleopatra mobile slot.
At first glance this looks like an exact copy of the original IGT Cleopatra slot machine. And you wouldn’t be wrong.
But there’s a reason we gave the old machine only 4 stars, whilst giving this MegaJackpots slot the full 5 stars. Because whilst it was a good game before, it’s even better now.
But when should you play to trigger the progressive jackpot?
The odds improve significantly when the Cleopatra MegaJackpots progressive goes above the 1 million mark.
Obviously, overall, the return to player rate is lower in the jackpot slot than in the original Cleopatra video slot (which stands at a steady 95% average). Reason being, the calculations have to account for that big prize at the top that doesn’t trigger as easily as all that.
And your odds increase as the jackpot get bigger. It seeds at 500,000, but between us, things only really start to get interesting when the MegaJackpots Cleopatra mobile slot hits 750,000 when the return to player rate increases from 88.98% to 92.02%.
And then when you get to the 1 million mark the odds increase yet again to 93.03%. That’s when you should drop everything else, and get playing here.
All it tells you is that after 750,000 this IGT slot starts to think about breaking. Then after a million, it really, really, really, seriously starts thinking.
She’s the queen of the Nile, she can take her time thinking things over after all.
But the game itself is still the same old ancient Cleopatra you know and love. You are no less likely to win big via a good free spins round, with those 3x multipliers, than you are on the original slot game.
So if you think about it, you might as well play on the MegaJackpots Cleopatra. Progressive jackpots have a habit of breaking at the craziest of times, and even 500,000 in cash would be life-changing enough.
Not that it’s easy to trigger. You’ll need 5 wilds in the centre row, which is hard enough to do without a multi-million jackpot. But if you can play on one of the greatest and well balanced IGT mobile slots around, and win big by either the game itself, or the jackpot, why not play on the version of the game that potentially offers more?
But then, we always did like to dream big.

Wilds: The main change from the original, the wild here is represented by the MegaJackpots slot logo, rather than Cleo herself. However, it still works the same, doubling any win when it shows up on a winning payline.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more sphinx symbols anywhere on the five reels and you'll trigger 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
Add the 2x multiplier on the wild, which gives you a 5x multiplier essentially, and you can get some truly decent wins. But you will need to budget for a good 150 spins to catch this bonus feature.
You can, theoretically, re-trigger the free spins up to 180 times.
How to win the Mega Jackpot: You just line up 5 wild symbols in the centre reel.
That's it. It can happen at any time whilst playing.
We've always been fan of the original game, and we have to say, it's only been improved in the MegaJackpots Cleopatra mobile slot.
Not because the graphics or sounds, or even how it plays, is any different. But because now you get a real thrill as you see the wilds show up in some vague hope for a life-changing win.
If you want a slot that's a little less classic and little more complicated, try the MegaJackpot Siberian Storm slot. It's equally good and both work superbly as iOS or Android slots.
