We are just about keeping up with Pragmatic Play and their quick releases, with Eye of Cleopatra being just one in a long line of slots to come. Pragmatic Play has been throwing some pretty good parties recently in Barn Festival and Wild Beach Party, now it’s time to hop on a plane and see what Egypt has in store for us.
Like many slots, Eye of Cleopatra has a recurring Egyptian theme, which is very had to get excited about considering how often Providers opt for it. In terms of design, Eye of Cleopatra looks solid, with decent graphics and a stunning Egyptian background. Everything you would expect to see in an Egyptian themed slot, is all right here in Eye of Cleopatra.
The theme of Eye of Cleopatra may be a common one, but will Gameplay bring something new to the table? Let’s play on and find out!
Eye of Cleopatra Betting and Symbols
In terms of bets, Eye of Cleopatra has a selection for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £/€0.20 per spin (£/€0.25 per spin Ante Bet). For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin (£/€125 per spin Ante Bet), with plenty of other options in between the two.
The highest paying regular in Eye of Cleopatra is Cleopatra herself, followed by the Pharoah, Bird, Cat and Snake. Low paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack.
There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all symbols except Scatters.
Eye of Cleopatra Base Game and Features
Eye of Cleopatra is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. In order to form a winning combination, you will need to connect a minimum of 3 symbol types from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
Like other Pragmatic Play titles, Eye of Cleopatra has an interesting feature or two to keep you busy in the base game. More on these below.
At any point during gameplay, you will be able to activate and deactivate the Ante Bet feature.
Activating the Ante Bet feature increases your current bet by 25%.
Although your current bet increases with the Ante Bet active, so does you chance of triggering the Free Spins round.
Random Wild Patterns
On the right side of the reel set, you will see a device with 8 individual sections, this is part of the Random Wild Patterns feature.
During any base game spin, the device may light up so many of the 8 sections, forming a random pattern. Whenever a pattern of light appears at the end of a spin, all Wilds that are present on the reels will copy themselves to the surrounding reel positions, replacing any high or low-paying symbols in those positions.
Eye of Cleopatra Free Spins
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters in any position on the reels triggers the Free Spins round. Before the Free Spins round can commence, you will be given 4 Free Spins options to choose from, these are as follows.
- Option 1 – Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters awards 10, 20 and 30 Free Spins respectively. Choosing this option means that patterns with 4 Lights appear randomly.
- Option 2 – Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters, awards 8, 16 and 24 Free Spins respectively. Choosing this option means that patterns with 6 Lights appear randomly.
- Option 3 – Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters, awards 6, 12 and 18 Free Spins respectively. Choosing this option means that patterns with all 8 Lights appear randomly.
- Option 4 – Choosing this option awards a random amount of Free Spins and random Lights from the options above.
If you land 3 or more Scatters during the Free Spins round, you will be awarded the same amount of Free Spins from the intial trigger.
If the maximum win capacity of 4,000x is reached, the bonus round immediately ends and all remaining Free Spins are forfeited.
Eye of Cleopatra: Our Verdict
Not in the mood for another trip to Egypt? We don’t blame you to be honest, but Eye of Cleopatra may just be worth the journey. Eye of Cleopatra has brief moments of excitement thanks to the Random Wild Patterns feature, but is it enough to forgive Pragmatic Play for the recurring theme? That’s for you to decide.
Although Pragmatic Play has graced the base game with the Random Wild Patterns feature, we will be the first to admit it’s not the most thrilling of features, but it’s definitely better than nothing. The Free Spins round picks up a little, giving players a choice of bonus rounds to pick from. Less is more in this case, the less Free Spins you go for, the more Lights are awarded from the Random Wild Patterns feature. Once Eye of Cleopatra has shown you everything it’s capable of, it gets rather boring pretty quick.
Statistically, Eye of Cleopatra looks about right for a Pragmatic Play slot, with an above average RTP of 96.50% and a maximum win capacity of 4,000x. It doesn’t suprise us that Pragmatic Play are sticking well in their comfort zone when it comes to maximum win capacity, but wouldn’t it be great to see some extreme potential in their slots? Maybe one day.
All in all, what Eye of Cleopatra has to offer may just be enough for the average player, but for those who love a slot with plenty of features and huge amounts of potential, you won’t find what you’re looking for here.
