King of the Nile Slots
Aristocrat’s King of the Nile slot machine is a sequel to Queen of the Nile – a much-loved slot game that was released five years prior to the former, in 1997. King of the Nile comes with a few extra features making it more interesting than Queen of the Nile. When it was released in 2002, King of the Nile was anxiously awaited for by fans of Aristocrat’s first Nile-based slot game, and to their delight, the manufacturer did not disappoint. Slots players across Australia flocked to casino floors to get their share of the action before King of the Nile went on to receive worldwide acclaim.
Aristocrat has developed a fair reputation for developing some of the most engaging slot machines out there. The level of success experienced by the Queen of the Nile slot machine urged the manufacturer to design a sequel to provide fans and slots players with a better, more enriched version of the ancient and mesmerizing theme. The King of the Nile slots is a fine improvement on the Queen of the Nile in terms of graphics and gameplay. Although both games are quite similar, the minor glitches that were found in the first slot machine have been fixed in the sequel, and as a result, King of the Nile is a fairly simple game that can be enjoyed without any hassles.
The Theme of King of the Nile
If you’ve played Queen of the Nile, King of the Nile’s theme needs barely any introduction. The icons used in the latter are similar to the ones used in the former, and the theme revolves around Ancient Egypt, making for a fascinating atmosphere. The symbols include a gold ring, the scarab, Cleopatra, Pharaoh, and the pyramids.
The King of Nile slots machine comes with five reels and 20 paylines. 10,000 coins is the biggest jackpot prize that you can win playing this game. To do so, you will have to land five Pharaoh symbols on any active payline.
Features of the King of the Nile Slots
This wonderful slot machine has a wild as well as a scatter icon. The Pharaoh is the wild symbol, while the Pyramid serves as the scatter. The wild icon can be used to replace any other icon save the scatter, as you look to form winning combinations. A very interesting feature of the Pharaoh is that he also multiplies your winnings by 2x if he is part of any winning combination.
If you land more than two Pyramid icons on a given reel, the bonus round is triggered. When playing the bonus round, you can win free spins depending upon how many Pyramid icons you land on an active payline. Three symbols will reward you with 15 free spins, four will present you with 20 free spins and five of the Pyramid symbols across a payline mean that you can win 25 free spins. The Pyramid icon also appears when the free games are being played, thus giving you the opportunity to win an increased number of free spins. Each free spin is automatically multiplied by 3x before being added to your overall prize.
When you are done playing the free games, you will be offered three options – to collect your winnings and resume the core game; to play more free spins; or to withdraw your free spins rewards and opt for a mystery award instead. Although the third option is seldom used because it can, at times, lower the total amount of money you win, it also has the potential to multiply your bet amount by 500x and present you with fantastic cash prizes.
