Cleopatra's Gold

4 replies • Last post

I finally was able to download a game to my computer. I had trouble doing that for some reason before that I couldn't figure out.

I tried to deposit money with my credit card and it was rejected. Is this a common problem with credit cards? I'm wondering if I need to deposit money from my credit card into another type of account and then deposit to the casino from there. Does anyone have any advice? I will continue reading here to see if I can find that info but there is a lot to read.

Since I couldn't play with real money, I played with "fun money". They gave me $1000 "fun money". I played several of the games on Lucky Red. The ones I had the most fun with were Food Fight, some shopping one and Cleopatra's Gold. You can throw pies at people (not sure what triggers the bonus round) and if you hit them you get so many credits.

The next one I played was some shopping one. That was fun too. I'm wondering if it's better to play 20 lines at 5 cents each ($1.00) or 10 lines at 10 cents each ($1.00). I've tried all types of combos and several times it seemed like I did better with the fewer lines. Any suggestions?

Also, since I was getting free "fun money" I thought it would be fairly easy to win but it wasn't. Are the fun money games set up just like the "real money" games? I thought they would try to sucker me in with winning easily but that didn't happen.

Lastly I played Cleopatra's Gold. I had so much fun with that one I won quite often playing 5 lines at 25 cents each. My favorite part was winning the scatter pay. If you get 3 pyramids (scatter) then you get 15 free spins. I got 15 free spins while doing the 15 free spins! That was fun. I played quite awhile on my "fun money". I may have to go back to that game to play for real.

I really appreciate being able to learn the games without using my own money up front.

The credit card problem is common for people in the USA. Unfortunately thats the result of the UIGEA law which has scared many of the banks and credit card companies into blocking transactions related to online gambling. However with confirmation from the Dept of Justice that online gambling isn't actually illegal made on December 24, hopefully that situation will change and fast!

Some cards will work and some won't. Unfortunately the only way you're going to know card which will is by trying. Some players have success with prepaid visa debit cards that you can buy at a gas station or store.

When you talk about depositing into another type of account, there are services known as "e-wallets" which are very similar to Paypal which you may have heard of. Some of the common e-wallets used for gambling transactions include Neteller and Moneybookers. However most of them won't accept U.S. funds. There are some that do but in my opinion they are a bit risky to recommend, as there have been ones in the past that have gone out of business, had funds seized, or just disappeared.

Re the "fun mode" - you have made a good move as that is the best way to get to know the games. All the casinos that we recommend here should have exactly the same payouts in fun and real money modes. If they don't and we find out about it, we blacklist them as it is not fair to suck someone in with a loose free game and then tighten things when real money is on the line.

20 lines at 5c vs 10 lines at 10c: that all depends on your appetite for risk because your total spend is still $1 per spin. Less lines at double the coin size means that your potential wins are twice as big. But of course you're only covering half the combinations on the reels so you're halving your chance of winning on a spin! In other words 10 lines at 10c is more risky, and generally you would expect to bust more often, but the potential rewards are greater. Taken to the extreme, on the same budget you could play 1 line at $1 per spin, but if you did you would expect to see longer periods of not winning anything interspersed with occasional bigger wins.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

At first I had problems using my credit card, but I never have a problem anymore. I use option number one and it has you buy like a gift card but it is the symbol for the credit cards and I click on the "express pay" option, which you will see when you click on the first option.

I always play ALL the lines at the minimum bet at Land Casinos. However, since for most of the games I play at the online casinos cost 25 cents per spin playing ALL the lines at the minimum bet, I usually play ALL the lines at the second one up, for 50 cents a spin. On those that go 40/60/80/1.00 I play either 40 cents or 60 cents per spin depending upon how much money I have.

I think it is smartest to play all the lines when you can. That is my own opinion. Smile

Sometimes I play on autoplay, too, for five to ten spins at a time and I don't look until it is done, lol.

I LOVE: Lucky Tiger, Loose Caboose, Fruit Frenzy, Basketbull, and Alladin's Gold. I used to like Mystic Dragon, too, but I never win on that much anymore. Loose Caboose has saved me a few times when I was down to my last few dollars, even cents. I play some others, but I go back to those, above, quite often.

Oh, a few more I like, sometimes are Lucky Last, Paradise Dreams, and sometimes the holiday ones like Naughty or Nice, Santa and Rudolph ones and the three reel slot "Bonkers" is kind of fun, too.

I am going to have to try Cleopatra again. I know I have played it before but not for a while.

For the three-reel slots, I LOVE the double diamond deluxe, although not all casinos have it. I don't think that Lucky Red has it, but Slot O Cash does.

LuckyMe, maybe you ARE lucky! I just signed into Slot O Cash and made my first deposit there (finished playing my free deposit now) and went to try out Cleopatra's Gold. I bet all lines for 40 cents and hit the free spins with ONE spin and got $14.00! Smile Not the best bonus round in the world, but hey, I will take it for FREE. I couldn't believe it hit on the first spin, lol! So, be sure to let me know what to play next, LM! Wink

Lol, I am so glad you won. I played the Fast Food one and did fairly well. I was winning several hundred credits at a time. Each time I won more credits, I would up the bid.
