Cleo’s Wish is a NextGen Gaming slot set in ancient Egypt. It’s much less serious than other Cleopatra-themed slots, such as Legend of Cleopatra or Cleopatra Coins, however don’t be fooled into thinking its any less rewarding. There are riches to be had from this Ancient goddess, but she isn’t going to give them away easily. Enjoy a much more relaxed Cleopatra, with some fun elements and some rewarding bonus features.

NextGen, like many other developers, turned to a tried and tested theme with Ancient Egypt here. Cleo’s Wish is one of many hundreds of games taking inspiration from this part of the world. In this particular instance the game has a playful cartoony take on the theme, where as most titles have a bit more mystery and intrigue, examples being Cleopatra’s Gold from RTG and IGT’s Cleopatra Plus. What is strange is that Cleo’s Wish is likely to attract a very different player to other Cleopatra themed slots, due to the elements such as the music and graphics. Play this slot for free and find out how it works before depositing and playing for real. The free play version of Cleo’s Wish is available through this page.
Cleo’s Wish slot review
Cleo’s Wish is possibly Nextgen’s answer to Cleopatra from IGT but immediately you’ll see by the cartoon style graphics it doesn’t really cut the mustard in that respect. Nevertheless there’s usually a few treasures to be had in ancient Egypt and indeed we can see the Pyramids and desert behind the transparent reels although they couldn’t be bothered with any Egyptian style music so our ears are assailed by some hotel bar piano tunes instead. Not a great start so let’s hope we can do a Howard Carter here and find some undiscovered riches.
5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay lines is what Cleo’s Wish slot offer us but oddly we need to pay 30-coins per play. The top symbol is a Wild which features the same gormless-looking Cleopatra as we see standing to the left of the reels and is our top pay of 500 coins if we see a full line of 5. Aside from the low-pay card values we have a Game Logo, Scarab, Ankh and Vase paying from 400 down to 200 coins, plus a Pyramid scatter.
You’ll sometimes see a gold chest appear over the reels at the start of any spin which will transform all the top 4 picture icons on the reels to the same one. Rather better it may award random Wild reels, from 1 to all 5.
The proper bonus is free games when you see those pyramids on reels 1,3 and 5. The game will choose one of two variants for you – Cleo’s Parade gives free games with reel 5 Wild which migrates to the left each spin, but stacked Wilds are now on the reels too and any landing will do the same, so the spins run out when no Wild reels are left. A retrigger will simply add another stacked Wild to reel 5, guaranteeing at least 4 more spins.
If not, you’ll get Eternal Riches which is 5-10 spins and any Wild appearing adds 1-3 to the super multiplier meter which can go as high as 20. Any scatter adds up to 3 spins to a super spin meter. When the basic free games end, you then play however many super spins you collected with the multiplier accumulated.
Cleo’s Wish is OK for some gentle fun and plenty happens but don’t expect the streaks you can get on the older IGT Cleopatra or any substantial wins, as the super spins don’t deliver what you might hope, although the Cleo’s Parade version can produce a mid-range win or two. The best pay is just over 400x bet for a full screen of Wilds in that feature. The RTP is 95.15% and good luck!

Cleo’s Wish does not have a serious appearance as you expect with other ancient Egyptian themed slots, but the bonus features could make you think differently about it. What I like is the Guaranteed Wild Reels which can basically introduce Wilds on all reels at random during the base game but bigger wins will arrive in the Free Spins feature, specifically the Cleo’s Parade Free Spins where you can enjoy lots of stacked Wilds at any point.
