Treasure Nile Progressive
Few slots are as clean and dramatic looking as the excellent, vividly-coloured Treasure Nile Progressive slot. Taking its cue from ancient Egypt, as many other slots do, this is certainly one of the brightest and best looking of slots you can play either from a desktop, or via a mobile.
So what is it about Treasure Nile that catches the eye? Well first off, let’s start with the basics, which is that Treasure Nile is a 5x3 reel slot with 9 pay lines in operation on every spin. In addition, the coin size for each pay line is set at 0.50 and the number of coins you can play on each spin per pay line is also set at one.
The upshot of this is that regardless of how much you want to spend playing Treasure Nile, you have to factor in that every spin of the game will cost you 4.50.
Now of course, this does mean that those players who don’t want to risk so much money on this progressive slot may feel excluded from proceedings, but to be fair, there are other progressives available (such as Tunzamunni for example) which can be played for considerably less per spin.
As such, it is therefore important to note that the Treasure Nile slot is most definitely aimed at those slot players who are comfortable and have the bankroll to play for 4.50 on each spin, perhaps over a lengthy period of time, if they want to maximise their chances of a big progressive win.
While it can be argued that to have some choice in how much you want to wager on the slot would have been a better option, what can’t be argued is that the excitement for players knowing that every spin of the slot gives them a chance of winning the progressive jackpot, does give the game added appeal. This is somewhat diminished if players could play for say 0.05 per pay line but not have a chance of winning the progressive jackpot. At least the 4.50 price makes it easy for players to decide if they want to play the game or not.
If you do elect to play then you are in for a treat for the eyes. Rather than go with the usual playing card low symbols, Treasure Nile has gone full-on Egyptian with a host of symbols based on that theme populating the reels.
From ancient papyrus inscribed with the Eye of Horus, King Tutankhamun’s famous death mask, a River Nile sailing barge, the King Cobra, Amulets, the jackal-headed god Anubis, Egyptian pillars, The Sphinx with the Pyramids in the background, if it is linked with ancient Egypt, then it is likely on the reels.
Each of the symbols has been beautifully realised too, capturing the essence of this ancient civilisation across the reels.
When it comes to features, Treasure Nile doesn’t have a separate bonus game, or any free spins round, however it does boast Wild symbols. These are the Pyramid symbols and they can be used to substitute for any of the other symbols in the game to complete a winning pay line.
The only symbol that a Wild cannot substitute for on the reels is the in game Scatter symbol which is the Golden Scarab beetle. Land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels (they do not have to be on a single pay line) and you can win from 5 times to 50 times your total number of credits stakes on that spin (which is always 4.50).
Wins can be triggered from as little as two symbols on a single pay line on the first two reels, but the more of a symbol, or a substituting Wild, you can get on a single pay line, the higher the value of your win.
There are two jackpots available in the game. The first is the standard jackpot and this is triggered when you land five of the Tutankhamun Death Mask symbols on any of the first 8 pay lines of the slot. Achieve this and you will trigger a 6,000 coin payout immediately.
However, if you can land the same five Tutankhamun Death Mask symbols on the lucky ninth pay line of the slot (which is the bottom two symbols of reel two, the middle symbol of reel three and the top two symbols on reels four and five) then you will trigger the progressive jackpot win and take home potentially a good chunk of money as this lucky player did.
It is not unusual for the progressive jackpot on the Treasure Nile slot to grow upwards of 500,000 credits at times and when it is won, it reverts back to its seeded amount of 40,000 credits.
Treasure Nile may be a little on the expensive side for some progressive slot fans, but there is no doubting that it has instant appeal thanks to its Egyptian theme, great graphics, large standard jackpot and its potentially massive progressive jackpot. Add that together and you have a slot that not only looks great and plays great, but can sometimes pay great sums too.
