Legend of Cleopatra Megaways Review
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways is the first Megaways slot game developed by Playson and has the theme of ancient Egypt. You could probably already deduce this from the name of the game, otherwise you will see it in the symbols and features. The game has only been playable at various online casinos very recently, as it was released on December 3, 2020. Incidentally, it is the first Megaways variant that Playson has made, but you can already know the title of the game. Legend of Cleopatra has been around for a bit longer. In this review you can read everything you want to know about this Megaways slot machine.

RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game will be 95.84%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
In the background you can see the sandy landscape of Egypt with a playing field of 6 reels. Incidentally, the middle 4 reels have an extra box on top, something we see more often. To the left of these boxes is the title of the game and to the right you will find the number of Megaways in effect. You will also see the ‘Buy a Bonus' Feature on the left side of the playing field, which we will discuss in more detail later. All other options and settings can be found at the bottom of your screen.
How does Legend of Cleopatra Megaways work?
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways works just like other Megaways variants with the Megaways principle, so that you can make combinations in almost any way. It is striking that with this game you are dealing with a maximum number of 200,704 Megaways. Normally, with 6 reel slots we often see a number of 117,649, but here the middle 4 reels have a maximum of 8 symbols. You form combinations from the first reel with symbols that lie on adjacent reels. For most symbols you need at least 1 on the first 3 reels. The more symbols in the combination, the bigger your prize. You can also increase the chance of bigger prizes by unlocking certain features or the bonus round. The betting range consists of a minimum of 0.20 and a maximum of 100, which is quite wide. Pick a bet that makes you feel good and the game can begin!
The Symbols & Payouts
Below is an overview of the symbols, which are divided into a few categories. The symbols will also be provided with information about what they look like and what they pay out:
- There are 6 basic symbols that consist of the usual card symbols 9 to A. For a combination with one of these symbols you need at least 3 symbols. For a 6 of a kind you get 0.5x (9 and 10) or 0.75x (J, Q, K, and A) your bet back.
- The premium symbols consist of Horus, Bastet, Anubis, and of course Cleopatra. For the latter you only need 2 symbols to form a combination. In the event that you turn a 6-of-a-kind you will get back 2x, 3x, 4x, and 40x your bet respectively.
- The last category consists of the wild symbol, as there is no bonus symbol. As always, the wild symbol can substitute for any other symbol. An important fact is that the wild can only appear on the middle 4 reels, but not on the extra bonus spaces.
A well-known feature is that of the Cascading Reels, or Collapsing Symbols as it is called here. The symbols of winning combinations will give way to new symbols. This gives you the chance to win another combination within the same turn and bet. This process continues until no more winning combination is made.
The symbols that appear in the top 4 squares can carry 1 to 3 so-called Scarab Badges. You can see this in the top left corner of the symbol. If one of these symbols occurs in a combination, each badge gives a multiplier of +1. Since 4 symbols with up to 3 badges can appear in the top boxes, you can create a maximum multiplier of +12 in 1 turn. This remains valid as long as you keep making winning combinations.
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways Bonus Round
The first way to reach the bonus round is to simply unlock it. You do this by using the top 4 squares in one turn in a combination, making them all disappear. However, this can also be done in consecutive winning turns, as the box then remains empty. You will then receive 12 free spins back for this. During the bonus round you can also earn 5 extra spins by clearing all the top boxes again. You take the multiplier with you from the basic game, and in the bonus round it is not reset if you do not manage to make a winning combination. Especially because of the latter, prices can be very high!
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways Buy a Bonus Feature
If you don't feel like waiting to clear the bonus round, you can also decide to buy it. This will cost you 100x your bet and you will also receive 12 free spins. However, you play the bonus round as if you were playing with your normal bet, so it is not a given that you leave the game with a profit.
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways Max win & Rating
The maximum win is 6,584x your stake and therefore we from Megaways Casino rate this slotgame 3 our of 5 stars.
The game is of course not completely new as Legend of Cleopatra preceded this. Furthermore, it is quite a reasonable game for a first Megaways variant of this game provider. Especially the game element with the Scarab Badges is fun and somewhat original, as the rest is pretty standard. Overall an average score.
