During the later BC years, Cleopatra ruled Egypt with her father, then her brothers, and eventually as sole ruler. Although Cleopatra ruled Egypt, she actually came from a Greek family. When she became sole ruler, she made an agreement with Julius Caesar which helped grow her power. After his assassination, she sided with Mark Anthony in opposition of the legal heir to Caesar’s throne—his nephew. Thousands of years later, the only thing we have to remember her by is legends passed down from generation to generation.
And of course, the Cleopatra slot game by Arrow’s Edge. This slot game is filled with Egyptian imagery that’s almost always a sign of great treasure. The question is, will Cleopatra share with you?
Cleopatra has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. You can change the number of active paylines using the lines setting in the bottom right corner or with the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard. Your bet can be changed using the up and down keys on your keyboard. There is a double up feature which allows you to bet your winnings from last round, double or nothing. Choose from one of two coins for a 50/50 chance at winning. However, when I click this button, I get an error message (although I am still able to test the game out).
All but four symbols only pay for matches of 3 or more of a kind. This lower tier of symbols includes the 9 and 10, the J and Q, the K and A, and Bastet and the pharaoh statue. The maximum reward for these symbols is 250x your bet. The higher tier of symbols includes the sphynx, the egyptian king, and Cleopatra (the wild symbol.) The highest reward for these symbols is 10,000x your bet per line for a maximum total prize of $120,000.
Land 3 or more scatter symbols and you get 15 free spins. This feature can be retriggered during free spins, and all winnings during these free spins are tripled.
If you land a pyramid symbol on both the 2nd and 4th reels on an active payline, the Pyramid bonus is triggered. There are 7 different stages in which you get to choose a brick from a pyramid to remove. Some of these bricks will have awesome prizes behind them while others will reveal a snake and end the bonus game.

You can find Cleopatra by searching for it on Google or at one of your favorite online casinos. Most websites that have this game will allow you to play for free without registering, but you will need to create an account and deposit money to play for cash.
Since Cleopatra (and most, if not all of Arrow’s Edge’s slot games) uses Adobe Flash Player, you can’t play it through the web browser on your smartphone or tablet, and there is no app version of the game that you can download on your phone.
In many ways, Cleopatra is exactly what you’d expect from a modern 5×3 slot game. There are plenty of symbols, a free spins feature, and a bonus feature. However, the double up feature and having the ability to win up to 10,000x your line bet from matching 5 wilds gives this game a boost. It was a bit disappointing to see an error during the double up feature, but I assume that’s not a concern in for-cash versions of the game.
As far as design goes, this is a run-of-the-mill slot game. The symbols and background are all bright and shiny with a bit of detail. The sounds effects aren’t great but the music is nice.
But gameplay is what’s really important, and Cleopatra is definitely up to snuff in that category. With plenty of extra features and lots of opportunities for big payline wins, Cleopatra is always a fun choice.
