NextGen launches Ancient Egypt themed slot Cleo’s Wish at online casinos

  • 5-reel video slot now available for desktop and mobile
  • High-variance game features tons of in-game bonuses

NextGen Gaming has unveiled its latest slot release for online casino players.

Cleo’s Wish is an action-packed adventure game set on the River Nile, and stuffed full of bonuses to keep players amused.

The Ancient Egypt-inspired slot celebrates Queen Cleopatra and her reign, though NextGen have added their own signature twists to the genre.

Cleo’s Wish uses bright, colorful cartoon graphics and a jaunty riverboat jazz d a jaunty riverboat jazz soundtrack to deliver a fresh take on a very popular game theme.

Base game features in Cleo’s Wish

This is a high variance slot that is all about the bonus rounds. There are plenty of chances to grab a bonus, with three reel modifier features along with two free spins rounds.

However, base game wins tend to come quite slowly, to compensate for the high paying features.

There are five reels and 25 open paylines, plus scatter symbols that can appear anywhere on the reels. Low-paying symbols are based on playing card ranks, while the higher paying symbols include ankh crosses, scarab beetles and jewelled bangles.

Cleopatra serves as the game’s wild symbol, while the Cleo’s Wish symbol prompts the free spins bonus.

During the base game, three bonuses can trigger at random. The Transforming Symbols bonus changes random symbols into one chosen higher paying icon, while the Add Wilds feature increases the number of wilds on all reels.

Finally the Guaranteed Wilds ensures there will be at least one wild on one or more of the reels, including all five.

Free spins rounds

There are two kinds of free games in Cleo’s Wish. In the Cleo’s Parade round, stacked wilds are introduced to the reels during the free spins, increasing the chance of a big multiplier win.

Additional free spins can be earned during the round by collecting scatter symbols. Wins are modest but relatively steady in this game.

In Eternal Riches, collecting Wild symbols builds up the Super Spins Meter, unlocking multiplier enhancers and more wilds for the reels. Players can start the Eternal Riches round with up to 20 free games, and they are almost sure to come away with a big prize.

As a high variance game, both bonuses are fairly hard to hit – but really very rewarding when they do land. The base game enhancers such as Transforming Symbols and Guaranteed Wilds are far more frequent, but they generally lead to smaller prizes.
