There's no doubt in any player's mind who has been around the online slots industry for a while that there is a huge abundance of games that are based around different types of Egyptian themes. While there is a lot of mythology to pull from, almost all of them are actually based on Cleopatra or King Tut. The Asp of Cleopatra, a game produced by Red Rake Gaming, starts off with the most stereotypical of these motifs.

However, they manage to stand out quite a bit from what's usual in this sub-genre because they produced the game with extremely strong graphics and gameplay based on a feature dynamic that we can't remember having been used in any game we've seen before.

Slot Format

The format of this game is designed to be solid for delivering the feature-driven gameplay. This includes the usual 5x3 grid with five reels and three rows. You also have 25 paylines. There are no options to change the number of paylines, so they're all static, and the baseline wager is $0.25 per spin. However, the maximum bet will depend on where you're playing from, and that will usually be in the range of $50 to $200 per spin.

Bonus Symbols and Wheel Minigame

First off, you have an option to trigger a wheel-based minigame with three of the bonus symbols that show both Horus and Anubis. This is the Wheel of Gods Minigame, and it's much less complicated than it looks. You'll pick between the two gods, and a wheel will spin to choose a random win. If you guess right between the two gods (chosen at random), you'll get extra spins. You can win up to 100 times your total bet in this way, so it's a value-packed bonus feature for sure.

Re-spin Feature

The main feature that you'll encounter the most in this game is based on re-spins. The way this works is that every winning combination will lead to an extra chance to win by removing all of the winning symbols and allowing new symbols to fall down into place. When this happens, you can get more winning combos, which continues the process. Each time you get a re-spin on a given paid turn, the asp meter on the left-hand side of the reels increases by one as well.

Free Spins Bonus Round

If the re-spins get the meter up past the three zeros on the left side of the screen, then you'll get the number of free spins listed (10, 20, 30 or 50). You can continue to trigger more free spins added to your total up to a maximum of 1,000x with this feature. Moreover, the asp symbol itself becomes wild, giving you even more wins than you'd normally get, so the feature is a great value.

Wilds and Other Top Symbols

Cleopatra is the wild symbol, and she can appear stacked as well. Five of a kind earns a win worth 6,000x, but you can make it 1,500x for four of a kind or 200x for three of a kind. This symbol is important, but it's not the only wild since the asp can be wild in the free spins mode.

Speaking of the asp symbol, it's the next-highest symbol in the game. It awards 2,000x when you line up five on one of the paylines. A win of 1,800x is yours with a five-of-a-kind combination of the ankh symbol (it looks like a golden cross), and you can earn 1,600x for five of the scarab too.

Lower-Level Payouts

The lower level payouts in this game are higher than usual because the volatility and hit-rate are lower than what you'll normally see in most video slots. You can get 1,400x for five of the cat symbol, and five of the sphinx gets you a solid 1,200x win. It drops down to 1,000x for the eye of Ra when you get five of a kind. The bottom of the pay table consists of the map for 800x with five and the cup, which is good for 600x when you line up five of a kind.

Our Thoughts

The Asp of Cleopatra slot by Red Rake Gaming has an excellent, feature-driven style of gameplay that's as good as anything else you'll find in the industry as a whole. On top of that, they have a value-driven pay table with a tremendous set of high-quality graphics. Add this to the wheel feature and the action that comes from the combination of the re-spin and free spin features, and you have a tremendous experience on every level. It's clear to see that this is one of the best Egyptian-themed slots out there overall, and it would take quite a bit to beat it.
