From Stakelogic, Book of Cleopatra Super Stake plays over a standard 5×3 format with just 10 Paylines. It was released in the summer of 2020 as an upgraded follow-up to 2018’s original game.
The action takes place in a tomb in Ancient Egypt, the walls decorated with hieroglyphs and paintings, as you set off to discover Cleo’s coins, not to mention other treasures along the way.
Expect a dramatic, tension-building soundtrack, along with vastly enhanced graphics in this new, improved version of Book of Cleo, along with an overall somewhat darker feel.
This game is all about the Super Stake option, giving you the choice to double your stake in return for the chance to land bigger wins.
How to play
The betting range here is a default 0.1 to 100. You’ll need at least three lower-paying symbols for a win, or two for the premium icons, while, unsurprisingly, the best prizes are for five-in-a-row hits.
The lower values are the usual playing cards A through 10, here given Ancient Egyptian decoration to suit the theme. Among the premiums are, in ascending order of worth, the snake or scarab, cat and Cleo herself, for whom the prize is 500x stake for five in a row.
Book of Cleopatra Super Stake Special Features
This game’s book icon is your Scatter and Wild in one. So it replaces all other standard symbols, while also granting you access to the free spins feature.
Super Stake Mode
Enable this to double your bet in the hope of triggering the bonus, which crops up roughly every 50 spins. This plays on a different reel set and features symbols bearing cash values.
Kick off with three respins. Each time you land a fresh icon, it’s held in place as the respins tally resets to three. The round ends when respins expire, or the whole grid fills with cash icons.
As ever, you’ll need three Scatter/Wilds to gain entry to this perk. You get a Scatter reward involving two, 20 and 200x stake for three, four and five Scatters respectively. Enjoy 10 freebies in the first instance. An icon is selected randomly to be an expanding Wild – whenever it lands so that a win could result, it fills out the whole reel.
The round can be retriggered with a further trio of Scatters, and when this happens you can gamble your free whirls for an odds-on chance of scooping up to 25 extra freebies. (Lose and you get five whirls, and then get sent back to the main game once your tally gets to zero.)
Retriggering bestows 10 further wager-free whirls, plus a Scatter reward, although not another expanding icon.
Finally, if you want to pay 81x stake for direct access to this round, and get right to the heart of the action, there’s a Buy Free Spins option.
This is something Stakelogic likes to include in games, and it means you can choose to pay to double or even quadruple your winnings via a card picking game in which you predict the next suit or colour revealed.
There’s no progressive jackpot in Book of Cleopatra Super Stake. However, you can win up to 5,521x stake from a single spin.
Return to Player
RTP or Return to Player in Book of Cleopatra Super Stake is a maximum of 96.7%, or perhaps a shade above the norm. At the same time, you should buckle up for a highly volatile game. So don’t expect wins every second you’re playing.
Both Ancient Egyptian and ‘Book of’ slots have, of course, been heavily done before. Indeed, it seems that just about every developer has at least one in their portfolio. But these slots remain popular.
And the Super Stake element definitely adds a fresh layer of interest and excitement, while the graphics have been significantly improved for this latest version of the game.
