We’re heading back into ancient Egyptian territory with the latest of SpinPlay Games’ online slots called Wild Link Cleopatra, a casino game that offers up to 4,841x your stake as a possible cash reward. This is the optimum, but something more realistic that will no doubt intrigue iGamers is the bonus features that come with it. Free spins serve as the standard feature, but the Wild Link feature is the one that likely brings more of a pleasant surprise.
SpinPlay Games is a new-ish studio that was started by its big brother Microgaming, so for those worried about production quality, rest easy knowing Microgaming has their mighty resources behind this one. By now, it's evident that it carries an Egyptian theme, which is a bit repetitive seeing as this theme is the most used across casino games developers. You'll have 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 paylines on which the magic can happen, although reels 3, 4 and 5 can expand; but more on that later.
Most players will like the medium volatility, as it means wins shouldn't go missing for periods, but again, don't bank on that. Depending on what sort of budget you bring to Wild Link Cleopatra, there's a minimum stake limit of 0.20, with different stake options all the way up to 50.00 per spin.
As this is an Egyptian-themed slot online, the higher paying symbols are all themed around this ancient civilisation. There’s an amphora, an ankh, the eye of Horus, a scarab beetle and a cheetah. The lower paying icons are playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.
The sun and the bonus symbol are special icons and bring about bonus feature thrills in Wild Link Cleopatra. There's also a wild icon, Cleopatra, which substitutes all regular symbols – excluding the sun and bonus icons.
If you land either the sun symbol or the wild on reel 1 then you trigger the Wild Link feature. This is a collect feature, meaning that sun symbols landing during the feature do so with cash values, that are collected and paid to you. The feature also sees reels 2 – 5 expand, and you might also see the wild randomly boost the value of sun/cash icons by up to 5x their original values. There are also three different jackpots that could be collected, with the Mega being worth 200x your stake.
Free spins are triggered when you land 3, 4 or 5 bonus symbols on the same spin. For this Wild Link Cleopatra will reward you with 10, 20 or 50 free spins. You also get a 6th reel, and if suns land in that 6th reel, it's a guaranteed win.
Online slot machines such as Wild Link Cleopatra that come with collect features are always most welcome at our casino site, and the reason for this is that they provide excellent added value for all iGamers. The free spins are also very much appreciated, especially as there's a maximum of 50 free spins that landing 5 scatters will award. Definitely two thumbs up, in our opinion.
