Playson first released this game in 2018, and in 2020, the developer decided to upgrade it to a Megaways. This gave birth to a slot known as Legend of Cleopatra Megaways.
Here is my review of the Megaways version of the slot, Legend of Cleopatra:
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways has 6 reels and up to 200,704 Megaways. This is a surprising move by Playson as a majority of slots using this set up provide fewer Megaways.
The game sues features like free spins, Collapsing Symbols, and Scarab Multipliers.
Placing a bet is straightforward, and easy, and all that you need to do is input the amount that you want to use. The betting range here is between $0.20 and $100 per spin.
Given that the slot offers more than 200,000 potential combos, combined with the multipliers, the slot offers great potential to players. However, Playson has placed a cap at 6,584x the stake.
The payout may not be as exciting as we have seen on other slots, and the developer has also maintained high volatility for the title.
For the RTP, I find it to be absolutely low, and at 95.84%), it is not near what other Megaways slots offer.
Most Megaways slots use the cascading reel's mechanism. On Legend of Cleopatra Megaways, this concept is known as Collapsing Symbols.
Collapsing Symbols work just like the cascading reels, and they remove the winning symbols and replace them new ones. A horizontal reel will appear at the top of the middle four columns.
Scarab Multipliers are great boosters, and they will increase the value of your wins.
Golden wilds will help you to form winning combinations, and they will also act as replacements for the regular symbols.
Free spins are present too! Initially, you will get 12 free spins, and you can retrigger them whereby, you will be given an extra 5 extra spins.
I love the fact that the multiplier will keep on increasing and not reset until the feature ends.
Playson didn’t put much effort into getting a new theme or story for this title. Cleopatra has already been overused in Ancient Egyptian inspired games, and the developer would have done better with something more creative.
Symbols include the usual beautiful Egyptian queen, images of the deities (Horus, Bastet and Anubis). Royals are present to represent the low-value symbols.
The design is generally good, and so are the graphics. Even if you are not a great fan of this kind of theme, you will love the beautiful work that Playson has given the title.
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways may offer a few changes, but there is nothing much to enjoy here as far as originality is concerned.
Additionally, the RTP offered by the developer is quite low and may work against its high volatility.
From the experience that I had with Legend of Cleopatra Megaways, I can only recommend it to casual players.
