Queen of the Nile Slot Machine Review
Queen of the Nile Slot Machine
Queen of the Nile slot machine is a classic 5-reel and 20-payline Egyptian-themed slot developed by Aristocrat. Created as long ago as in the 1990’s, it is still one of the most popular Aristocrat slots. So, don’t let its simple and classic design fool you, as this slot brings big prizes and bonuses; it most certainly hasn’t kept its popularity by chance. There are many adapted versions of this slot, such as Queen of the Nile 2 or Queen of the Nile Legends, but definitely the first original version remains the best true classic slot machine.
Design and Symbols
Both design and symbols of the slot reflect the ancient Egypt period, more precisely the reign of the glorious Cleopatra. Aristocrat developers put you on the ride through the ancient Egyptian culture, by implementing the symbols such as gold pharaoh mask, gold ancient bracelet, beetle, flower and the Eye of the Horus, the ancient Egyptian symbol of protection and royal power. Along with these main symbols, you will encounter the classic symbols such as ace, king, queen, jack, ten and nine. And most importantly, there are the Cleopatra or the Queen of the Nile icon, which functions as a wild, and a Pyramid symbol that functions as a scatter. Each symbol carries its own value; for example, the golden pharaoh mask and golden bracelet carry the highest value, while the card symbols have the lowest values. What adds to the whole Egyptian atmosphere is the mystical ambient music with the soothing and mesmerizing sound patterns.
Queen of the Nile is a classic 5-reel 20-payline video slot. The slot allows you to can keep control over your wagering amount, choosing the high or low limit, starting from $0.02 up to a maximum of $2.50 bet per line. And of course, the more you bet, the more you win. You can also choose to play 1, 5, 10, 15 or 20 pay lines. And if you are in for longer sessions, you may as well choose the AutoPlay option (the button below the reels) and just wait for your winning combos.
Queen of the Nile slot has two bonus symbols, and those are Cleopatra or the Queen of the Nile as a wild symbol and the Pyramid as a scatter symbol. Wild Cleopatra appears on all reels and substitutes for all other symbols except for the scatter Pyramid. And if one or more Cleopatra symbols substitute in a winning combo, then that win will be doubled. And the Queen is quite rewarding also, since if you land, for example, 4 or 5 of these symbols you will win 2000 or 9000 coins.
As with many video slots, more than 2 scatter symbols will unlock the bonus feature. Here, the major bonus feature is the 15 free spins bonus. In order to unlock free spins bonus, you’ll have to land 3, 4, or five scatter symbols, that is a Pyramid, anywhere on the reel board. And in free spins mode, all wins are tripled and don’t forget that Cleopatra symbols also doubles the win. So, you essentially get the chance to win really big. Furthermore, the free spins bonus can be retriggered during the free bonus feature. Wild icons are also rewarding, not as much as the Cleopatra symbol, but still, you can win up to 400 coins when you land 5 of these symbols anywhere on the reels, while at the same time triggering the bonus.
To sum up, the Queen of the Nile is a classic. A fine, popular slot which awards you with some great wins on the way. Just think of its 9000 coins Cleopatra prize, and not to mention the slot’s bonus feature which triples the prizes. Those are just the jams you would want from a classic video slot. And the game itself, based on the majestic Egyptian culture, is interesting, although it doesn’t have extraordinary graphics and design. But with its big prizes and various combinations for the win, you should definitely get acquainted with treasures of the Nile.
