LeoVegas in Another PG Soft Exclusive
by Glenn Baird - November 23, 2020
It was only a matter of days ago that LeoVegas went exclusive with PG Soft and released the Circus Delight slot. Now they have done so again, this time heading to ancient Egypt with Secrets of Cleopatra.
PG Soft is relatively new to the market, having formed just a few years ago in 2015. The company is based in Malta but has offices all around the world. Their games can be played in over 100 different countries though more than 1000 different operators. They currently have 69 different slots, in 21 different languages and also offer 6 different table games.
We do not currently offer official reviews of PG Soft slots. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t take an unofficial look at what Secrets of Cleopatra has to offer.
If you happen to be unfamiliar with PG Soft’s work to date then it is worth noting that the majority of their slots are designed for play on mobile devices, hence the name Pocket Games. This slot is no different, which means if you do happen to play it on a PC or laptop you will notice that the interface is quite small.
The aesthetic is what we have grown to expect from an Egyptian themed slot. Plenty of browns, yellows and golds with Cleopatra taking centre stage. You should also not be surprised to see scarab beetles, pyramids and hieroglyphics.
There are Wild symbols and they come in the form of golden pyramids. The only symbol they don’t substitute for are the Scatters, which I will come to later. The Wilds will only appear on reels 2 and 3 and don’t do anything other than what is mentioned above.
The Scatter is a Scarab Beetle and as you will no doubt expect you need to land 3 or more of them to trigger a Free Spins feature. This will give you 10 spins and you will gain an additional 2 Free Spins for every Scatter that lands above the minimum 3 needed to trigger. Scatters can land on any reel.
Here are your important numbers:
3 reels, all of them are 4 symbols high. You don’t get paylines, instead you need to land 5 or more matching symbols starting from the left side of the reels but that can essentially land anywhere after that. The betting range is limited to 0.1 to 10 units per spin, meaning that this is a fairly low-risk slot for players.
The most important number of all is the house edge, and at 3.26% I’m going to give PG Soft some credit for giving its players more of a chance than just about every other developer out there.
The most important feature is the Infinity Reels. If you land a win a new reel will be added onto the right land side that will offer you the chance to win again. If you do win again then the same thing happens again and will continue to do so again and again as long as the wins keep coming. Additionally, each extra win will increase the win multiplier, which begins at 1x the bet but has the potential (like the expanding reels) to go on infinitely, hence the name infinity reels.
The Free Spins do exactly this as well, but you can choose to gamble the spins you have been given and increase the size of the win multiplier’s increments, with the potential to hit plus 4 on each win but also with the chance to lose all you Free Spins.
That really is all we can report on with this slot. PG Soft have kept things simple, which I guess is what we want from a mobile slot. You get everything you should expect from Wilds to Free Spins and few little extras here and there. But for the most part this is a typical slot, albeit, one that has been well designed and one that comes with much better value for money than most other slots being released today.
As an exclusive at LeoVegas we like what we see and we also like the fact that LeoVegas are clearly thinking more about the mobile market. Good work from everyone involved. P.S. The house edge is really good here.
