How to Play it
Bright colours and joyful design, presented in a cartoonish style is what NextGen went for with Cleo’s Wish. With a five-reel grid set on the River Nile, this game has 25 fixed paylines.
The main aim of the game is to land at least three matching symbols on one of the 25 paylines in order to land a win. The game includes symbols such as classic playing card symbols from 9 to A, whereas a wide selection of traditional Egyptian memorabilia will offer significantly bigger payouts.
Here you’ll find scarab beetles, ankhs and bracelets, but also the Cleo’s Wish logo which is the single highest-paying symbol. In addition to all the symbols mentioned above, you’ll have a Pyramid Scatter and Cleo herself acting as a Wild. Cleo will reward you with a prize even if you land only two of her symbols on the reels and that’s what makes her special – in addition to the fact it substitutes all other symbols bar the Scatter.
The spin button is unobtrusively situated on the right-hand side of the playing screen and all you have to do is to hit it and hope for the best.
Cleo’s Wish comes with a great selection of engaging and rewarding features. First up are the Guaranteed Wild Reels which occur in the main game. Up to all 5 reels – starting with the leftmost one – could change to Guaranteed Wild Reels when you are sure to get a Wild on that spin, to increase your winning potential. Added Wild is another main-game feature, during which additional wilds can be thrown on any position of any reel.
Three Pyramid Scatters will trigger one of two special free games.
Cleo’s Parade – will see a stack of Wilds appear on the final – fifth – reel with each subsequent free game moving the stack one reel to the left. Free Games will last until the stack of Wild comes all the way over to the first reel. During the free spins another stack of Wilds can appear which will prolong the free-ride time.
Eternal Riches – will have anywhere from 5 to 10 standard free games being rewarded to players. A Wild during these games will add up to 3 to the Super Spins win multiplier which can go up to 20x. These Super Spins will be played at the end of the free games when the number of Super Spins will be determined by the Spin Meter.
The coin range to this wonderfully engaging game goes from $0.01 up to $1. The amount of total bet starts at $0.30 and goes all the way to $30.
Cleo’s Wish logo is worth 400 coins for five in a line and it’s the most rewarding symbol in the base game. The game has an RTP of 95.15% and the luckiest of players can hope to scoop the total of 200,000 coins.
When you think Egypt, the first association to slot game is a serious-looking slot, a divine-like presentation of sorts. But Cleo’s Wish is a complete contrast to this notion as it’s a cartoonish, jovial game with a bright and positive tone around it.
It’s filled with quite a selection of special features and thrill seekers will find it satisfactory, there is no doubt about it. Additionally, this game can be quite rewarding and we suggest you had a shot at it.
