NextGen Gaming Create Cleo’s Wish, A New Slot Machine
Scenes of Ancient Egypt are old hat for a lot of iGaming fans, with the historical figure of Cleopatra being one of the main characters used again and again. So much so in fact, that she appears in NextGen Gaming’s new addition, Cleo’s Wish. Presented in a highly animated 3D graphics package, this isn’t the Queen of Egypt we all know, for she appears younger and more youthful, almost similar to a modern day teenage.
This burst of energy that comes from the interface is mirrored not only in the aesthetics of the title itself, but also in the gameplay, with NextGen Gaming having packed in various bonus features. The result is a medium to high volatility title that’ll keep you on your toes, no matter if you’re a paying customer or one who is enjoying the reels for free.
Vibrant colours and sandy dunes are what players are able to see prior to getting started, with the 3×5 matrix a sort of window overlooking the River Nile. Beside this stands Cleopatra, her big green eyes peering out at you, while her composure always remains demeure. Upon the 25 fixed paylines is a balance of both high and low value icons, with the latter easier to spot as they’re presented in a generic card value format.
To embark on your experience with Cleo at your side, and to discover her wish, players are able to wager from as low as 0.30 credits per spin. This not only grants you access to the paytable symbols we just mentioned, but also to the four bonus games lurking among the sandy landscape of Egypt. Some of these special extras are randomly triggered, providing a more thrilling means of making wins, as well as a way to keep your experiences unique to every playthrough. That being said, a lot of the time, specific combinations will need to be met for you to access those high returns.
One of these random acts is that of the Sands of Fortune Feature, in which a treasure chest will pop up on one of the reels, with a particular symbol hidden inside. Upon opening the chest and revealing this special tile, other icons on the winlines will change to copy that of the one revealed. It may seem ridiculously simple, but it can result in a lot of payouts, if the reels play nice and line up those matching symbols.
As for features activated by combinations, there’s the Special Free Games Bonus, which offers two options for users to choose between: Cleo’s Parade and Eternal Riches. No matter your selection, you’ll still receive between five and ten free games, all of which can be reactivated should you be so lucky. However, the main differences will be in how these spins play out, as well as the type of wilds you’ll find inside of each feature.
Having been launched in late December, on the 25th to be exact, you can easily play this new NextGen Gaming title as a freeplay version via the NextGen website. However, you can also seek out casinos that cater to NextGen games as well as various others. What is more, you’ll be able to do this on both your desktop and mobile, as all NextGen Gaming activities are mobile optimised.
