Gameplay

Hidden treasures of Cleopatra is set in the desert with pyramids at the backdrop and a small stream coming from the fruitful river Nile is flowing on the forefront. Both the explorer and the title heroine appear on either side of the grid and as symbols on the reels. The slot has 27 Win Ways in the base game. This increases to 256 Ways to Win when the grid is expanded to 4×4. You have no less than 3125 Ways to Win when the reels have expanded to a 5×5 structure. The positions of the reels have been designed as rolls of papyrus and each roll spins individually, rather than that the complete reel spins. This gives a fun effect of depth on the reels. In addition to images of the explorer and cleopatra, the latter being the highest-paying symbol, you find gemstones in different shapes and colours and holy animals on the reels. The animals deemed holy by the ancient Egyptians that make their appearance on the reels are the snake, the Anubis and the cat. When it comes to cats, you play images of two cat statues both with shining ankh signs around their neck. When you play at least 3 Free Spins symbols on the reels in one spin you are awarded free rounds. A 3 and 4-of-a-kind win respectively let the reels expand from a 3×3 to a 4×4 grid or 5×5 grid for one spin. If you don’t hit another 3 or 4-of-a-kind win in that one spin, the grid returns to a 3×3 structure.
