Temptation Queen Slots
I had high hopes when loading this game up. The name was intriguing to say the least – what kind of temptation? And what kind of queen? It turned out that this slot from Williams Interactive is based on the popular Ancient Egypt theme. The queen in question is thus Cleopatra. Despite the title, she does not play a particularly tempting role in this game at all. There are some good features, which are headed up by a free spins round which can be retriggered (and in my limited experience does get triggered reasonably often). Overall this feels like a slightly older game – though like all WMS titles, it is very entertaining to play.
Cleopatra looks strange to my eyes. The same icon might have been used for many slots. The graphics in general are different to other Egypt themed games – though the symbols used are the old classics. You’ll find an ankh, scarab beetle, sphinx and pyramid. There is a strange bird statue too, along with a cat and very stylized playing cards. The expanding wild brings a reasonably good animation (a giant pyramid) though most of these involve flashing lines around the symbols. Mild computer melodies are the sound track to the main game, with a more up tempo Middle Eastern tune during the bonus game.
Playing Temptation Queen
Controls for this slot simply involve clicking on a button with the amount that you wish to spin. The smallest is 30c and the biggest $150. This gets you the fixed 30 win lines each time. You can start the auto-play, though this is not for a certain number of spins – it simply continues until you stop it, or until you hit the bonus feature.
When assessing the different prizes on the pay table, keep in mind that expanding wilds and 30 win lines mean you will often see several of these wins at the same time. Cleopatra (the original Temptation Queen) has the biggest prize. This pays out 50x your total bet size, along with the sphinx and the falcon. The ankh and scarab come next on the list, with the playing cards keeping your bankroll ticking over smaller wins.
There is a wild (pyramid) symbol which lands on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this one hits, it will expand to fill the entire reel it is on – often creating several more wins. You will sometimes get 2 or event 3 completely wild reels. These only expand if a win will get created.
The final symbol is a cat, 3+ of these anywhere on the reels will pay a scatter win, and also trigger the free spins game. Scatter wins are 2x spin amount for 3, 10x for 4 and 50x for 5.
Bonus Game in Temptation Queen
Other than a change of colour and the eastern music soundtrack, there is nothing different behaviour-wise for the free spins bonus game. You will start with 8 spins, and can retrigger these at any time during play with 3+ of the special bonus symbols. The expanding wild pyramids are still in play, and your wins can add up significantly – especially those times your bonus round does get extended.
