Treasure Nile has plenty of things going against it, especially as a slot machine that’s inspired by Ancient Egypt, but it has one big advantage as well, and that would be the progressive jackpot that it can award. Two very simple features are provided, a wild symbol and a scatter, which doesn’t help with the game’s appeal. The layout is a basic one also, placing 9 lines on the 5 reels filled with 3 symbols each. Besides the progressive jackpot, whose average win value was at $84.6k in the past, there is also the fixed prize of $3,000.
Betting and Prizes
Treasure Nile casino game will let you choose the number of lines, which will go up to 9, but it will have no option to select a number of coins or a value for it. There will be a fixed value coin used for each active line, and it will be worth $0.50. With all 9 lines used, the bet will reach $4.50.
The regular rewards will offer at most 6,000 coins, for five symbols in a combo. The value in that case would be $3,000. If the progressive jackpot is triggered, the prize will be significantly better, the average win being at over $80,000 in the past for it.
Both the fixed and the progressive jackpots are won through the same five Pharaoh symbols. The first 8 lines will pay the fixed prize, while the 9th line will deliver the progressive jackpot instead. The line on which the combo forms is very important in this slot.
Treasure Nile Slot Features
As for the features, they’re as basic as they get. A wild symbol and a scatter are introduced, but neither impresses the player. First, let’s take a look at the Pyramid wild. These are capable of replacing all other symbols, but not the scatters, and they can’t be used to trigger the progressive jackpot either. If you do get the wild on the 9th line, together with four Pharaoh icons, the fixed prize will be offered instead of the progressive.
The Scarab is also a feature, a symbol which appears in any position, and whose only role seems to be that of a trigger for prizes. If you have three, four or five Scarabs on the reels, will bring you a prize of 5x, 10x or 50x total wager.
Theme & Design
Treasure Nile’s theme doesn’t need a lot of explanations. Quite a few slots share the same theme and design style, and even the same symbols. I did appreciate that there were no poker cards used in this game, only Egyptian icons. Besides the scarab and the pyramid, there is the pharaoh, the Sphinx, Anubis, the Ankh, a necklace, cobras, scrolls, ships and grains.
Treasure Nile’s slot progressive jackpot is the only reason why this game might be worth playing, and the low wagering requirements will certainly help as well.
