Multi-channel developer’s latest blockbuster title goes live exclusively with William Hill before going network wide on 23 October 2020

Live5, the multi-channel slot developer behind some of this year’s biggest titles, has reworked another hugely popular William Hill retail slot, Cleopatra Queen of the Desert, which is now available exclusively to the operator’s online players before going network wide.

The 5×4 reel, 10 payline slot gives players the chance to win untold riches of their own through the game’s two bonus features, Wild Stacks Respins and Free Spins. With the former, any stack of four special symbols land at random, transforming into Wilds and awarding Respins.

The Free Spins bonus game is triggered when Scatter symbols land on three or more reels, with seven Free Spins awarded plus an additional spin for each Free Spins symbol that lands.

Cleopatra Queen of the Desert benefits from Live5’s unrivalled production quality, boasting stunning graphics, illustrations and animations which are combined with authentic sound to ensure that players are truly engaged and thoroughly entertained.

This is also achieved by setting the game volatility towards the higher end of the scale but with an RTP of 96.3% wins still land regularly. Cleopatra Queen of the Desert provides plenty of big win opportunities, too, with a x3,500 win potential.

The game is now available exclusively with William Hill before going network wide in 21 October. Cleopatra Queen of the Desert has been certified for launch in the UK, Spain, Sweden, Italy, Denmark, Malta and with Lotto Quebec in Canada.

Lloyd Butler, CEO of Live5, said: “The team has done an incredibly job with Cleopatra Queen of the Desert, taking a popular theme and giving it the unique Live5 treatment to create a truly compelling game that will keep players engaged and entertained.

“As with all Live5 slots, the production value is of the highest quality and our design team has really captured the spirit of ancient Egypt through the graphics and illustrations used in the game, from the backdrop to the individual symbols and buttons.

“Of course, the math and mechanics of the game have also been designed in a way that ensures players can feel the power of the pyramids and the anticipation of exploring them as they seek out treasures and big wins of their own.”

Craig Staples, Head of Gaming Content at William Hill, said: “We are really pleased to see our original bespoke retail title become the latest online offering from our partnership with Live5.

“We are thrilled to be able to launch Queen of the Desert online to William Hill players before anyone else and we are sure the game to will prove as popular as it did in our shops!”
