Winning the Jackpot
To be eligible for the Jackpot, you must bet max (5 credits bet on all 20 lines - 100 credits).
You win the Jackpot if you get 5 MegaJackpots symbols on the centre payline on a max bet play.
If you get 5 MegaJackpots symbols on an active payline other than the centre payline at max bet, then you earn the standard paytable award for a 5 MegaJackpots symbol win.
If the same Jackpot is offered in the same game with different denominations, the odds of winning the Jackpot are exactly proportional to the actual max bet amount. Therefore, the game is completely fair, offering the same odds per currency amount bet irrespective of the base denomination. For example, a player betting max in a 0.20 denomination game has twice the chance of winning the Jackpot as a player betting max in the same game and currency, but in a 0.10 denomination. The expected return to player is exactly the same for both players. So you can play in your favourite denomination, free from worrying about giving up any Jackpot odds relative to your total max-bet money staked.
The Jackpot can be won from within any Cleopatra Bonus free spin if that bonus was triggered with a max bet play.
Sphinx symbols appearing in any position on two or more reels earn you a scatter award relative to your total bet. The more Sphinx symbols appearing, the larger your scatter award multiplier. Please see the paytable for specifics.
In addition, Sphinx symbols appearing in any position on three or more reels triggers the Cleopatra Bonus which awards you 15 free spins.
Your effective bet for all of your free spins is exactly the same as the bet you placed when you triggered the bonus.
Free spins are played out automatically.
The paytable for free spins is the same as for the regular MegaJackpots Cleopatra game except that all line and scatter pays are tripled! Line wins completed with the MegaJackpots symbol enjoy a whopping 6x multiplier! However, Bonus multipliers do not apply to the top award (5 MegaJackpots symbols).
If you triggered the bonus with a max bet play, you can win the Jackpot with 5 MegaJackpots symbols on the centre payline.
If during a free spin, Sphinx symbols appear on three or more reels, you earn an additional 15 free spins, up to a maximum of 180 free spins.
After the last free spin, if you had one or more winning outcomes in the bonus, the total of all awards is displayed.
