Cobra Queen (Red Tiger)
Game developers do not seem to get enough of the Ancient Egypt theme. Many years after the first slot with this inspiration was created, we are still seeing many developers embracing it.
This ever-green theme may be common, but it always has something that captivates players, which could be the reason why many developers still go back to it.
In this review, we will take a deeper look at Cobra Queen, a slot that was developed by Red Tiger, in conjunction with Max Win:
Red Tiger has gone with the standard 5x3 reel-design, and only 10 ways to win. This is a good design, especially if you plan to play the game for real money.
The slot game has awesome features that include Free Spins, Sticky Wilds, and Locked Wilds.
Betting and Prizes
Cobra Queen allows bets ranging from $0.2 to $40 per spin. I was hoping for better payouts after seeing the volatility of the game which is at an all-time high.
However, Red Tiger has really disappointed with the low top payout of 2,040x the stake that they have offered for this title.
The RTP is fair though, and at 96.02%, it is within the average that is offered by other developers.
Cobra Queen Features
One thing that I noticed about Cobra Queen is that it relies heavily on Wild symbols.
These features will not land on the reels in the usual way, but rather, they will show up after each winning combo.
Each line you score on a win line, the last symbol to appear within this line will be turned into a Locking Wild. This will take effect in the next spin, but will also boost the value of the win.
Additionally, whenever the Wild acts as a substitute to a winning combo, extra wins will be added to the new wins.
If the Wild fails to participate in a new win, disappear.
The Scatter appears in the image of a pharaoh, and each time 3+ scatters appear at the same time on the 1st 3rd and 5th reels, the slot will reward you with some Free Spins.
At this point, you can now head on to the bonus where you will receive up to 10 spins.
If you get a reel that is entirely covered by Wild symbols, Cobra Queen will reward you with +2 extra spins.
Theme and Design
Cobra Queen has an interesting background setup, and I noticed something that looks like a tomb.
There are also vast hot sands with gigantic pyramids spread around. The illumination coming from the stars complete the beautiful scenery.
Red Tiger has used several symbols that include Cleopatra, scarab beetles, ankhs, Horus eyes, and A-10 royals that represent low-value icons.
Although the slot disappoints when it comes to pay-outs, I must commend the developer for creating a unique and engaging Ancient-Egypt themed slot, and not recycling the same old stuff.
Cobra Queen provides players with a fresh experience: it is an ideal game for all levels of layers, but its vicious volatility may be a huge challenge.
