The Wombat says: Battle Maidens: Cleopatra slot from 1×2 Gaming is the sequel to last year’s original Battle Maidens release with its Viking theme.
In this instalment, we meet that famous Egyptian empress in her fight against Anubis, the god of death and afterlife, as the Cleo and several of her bloodthirsty mates try to snatch up his endless riches. It’s a step up from the usual classical age game like our Augustus slot game, that’s for sure.
Aside from this weird and wonderful theme, you can also expect special scatters, expanding wilds and multipliers, plus a whopping great 10,000x your bet prize win.
Look And Feel
As you would expect, the graphics here step up to the ancient Egyptian theme; with swaying palm trees in the background and the elaborate golden reels flanked by 2 statues of jackal-headed God, Anubis.
The colour scheme is bright without being an eye sore, and the eerie soundtrack is quite soothing. All in all, it’s one of the better-looking Egyptian themed slots that we have seen. It really is a looker on par with Dark King, Forbidden Riches from NetEnt. Well done 1×2 Gaming!
Battle Maidens: Cleopatra Slot Game Play
Battle Maidens Cleopatra slot comes with 5 reels, 4 rows, and 1,024 pay-lines. Bets start at 0.10 and go up to the max of 50.00 per spin. We are in the realms of the Monkey’s Gold X Pays slot on this one, in terms of potential win combinations anyway.
Your symbols on the reels include the J, Q, K & A playing cards as your lower value symbols, plus the all-seeing Eye of Horus, a Sarcophagus, a sphinx and a jewelled amulet.
The Anubis icon is the wild symbol here and will replace all other symbols on the reels to make up extra winning combos for you.
Finally, the 5 brutal Battle Maidens are your scatter symbols and can land in any combination to trigger off the free spins bonus.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
Eye of Horus Feature
This is a base game bonus that can be set off whenever the Eye Of Horus icon lands. Next, it will take from 1 to 4 standard icons, and turn them into extra wild symbols potentially bringing you bigger and better wins. What a bonza bonus!
Free Spins Bonus
The biggest and best feature in this slot (and one that you can also buy if the fancy takes you) is the free spins.
Land 3x, 4x or 5x of any of the Battle Maidens on the same spin, you’ll trigger the Free Spins, receiving extra goes. But, here’s the best bit! The Maidens will help you out with the following modifiers:
• The sword-wielding Battle Maiden will be wild and come with a 2x multiplier
• The Battle Maiden with the bow and arrow will become a sticky wild wherever she lands for the rest of the spins.
• The Maiden sporting the gold headdress and blue hair will add one extra spin to your total
• The blood-thirsty Maiden wearing an animal skull will increases your win multiplier by 1x for any remaining spins.
• And finally, Cleopatra herself will transform into an expanding wild over all 4 rows for the rest of the bonus round.
FYI: You can also land all multiple modifiers on the same free spin, which can really boost that bank balance!
Plus, every time the Eye of Horus symbol lands during the bonus, you’ll be given an extra free spin and the multiplier will increase by x1. Ruddy hell!
Let’s face it wombat fans, with so many Egyptian-themed games out there in Slotland, will Battle Maidens: Cleopatra slot stand out from the crowd?
The answer is yes. Throw in with some good graphics and solid gameplay in the shape of those Free Spins modifiers, and you’ll find it really holds its own amongst classics like Book Of Dead and Ankh of Anubis.
