Graphics and Sound
Keeping in mind that this game is a good few years old, it is definitely ahead of its time in term of graphics, which is no surprise coming from IGT. Great attention to detail has been paid, and even the lower value card symbols have been ornately decorated. The other Egyptian-themed symbols are stunningly executed and the entire background whisks you away to Ancient Egypt in a heartbeat. The graphics are by no means 3D but they are still somewhat realistic and definitely visually stimulating. The reels have been designed so that they are big, bold and wins and losses are easy to see and follow.
Sounds blend seamlessly with the images your presented with, and the cohesion is easy on the eyes and ears. The soundtrack for Cleopatra is undoubtedly Egyptian and the flowing acoustics are dramatic yet relaxing and there is definitely no reason to switch the sound off when playing this game.
Jackpots are always what everyone is truly chasing. And this is one of the few NZ online pokies that has two Jackpot opportunities for you, which work in the following ways:
Standard Mega Jackpot: This jackpot can be won by any player if they happen to land 5 of the Mega Jackpot symbols in a winning combo. The award for this is a cool 10,000 coins, which exact amount in monetary value will depend on your wager.

Unlike the standard jackpot in the game, the progressive jackpot’s keeps changing and you can see the current amount (which is usually far more than the standard amount) in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Your chances for winning this life-changing sum are much higher if you are wagers are higher. But you can always win this jackpot in the ‘Second Chance’ feature which will randomly give you a chance to win this jackpot even on a non-winning spin.
