Except for the layout of the control board, this slot saves an incredible similarity to slots created by Novomatic and Bally Wulff companies that are creators of a series of slots that begin with the words “Book of ...”
The main similarity with said slots it is its feature “Mystery Scatter,” which is a regular symbol chosen randomly prior to the start of free spins to be further expanded vertically and then form combinations with other matching symbols regardless of whether the respective reels are located in adjacent places or not.
During the round of 12 free spins, all our wins are multiplied by x2 and this makes this feature our best opportunity to get a decent win because payouts for the base game are usually tiny due mainly to the weak paytable established by “Oryx Gaming” for this slot.
Additionally, due mainly to the large number of regular symbols included in this slot, 10 in total, there is no guarantee a round of 12 free games will give us a big win at the end, in fact, my only big win in this video slot happened just in the last of my 12 spins when I got 5 symbols “K” located on different reels; this was my mysterious symbol and during the previous 11 spins I never managed to form a single line with the “K” even of 3 of a kind; finally my big win was about $83 equivalent to 310 times my total bet.
Henceforth, I could never get a big win again, but fortunately I could leave the game before returning all my winnings to the machine, however, I'm not sure if I will play “Sceptre of Cleo” again by considering it a rather boring game and see difficult the possibility of repeating that unique lucky spin I got among hundreds of poor turns, and I think this last sentence describes a little better my personal perception of the overall performance of this game.
