Another Canadian player lands the biggest Treasure Nile slot win of 2017

There must be something in the air at the moment as Microgaming progressive slots are paying out jackpots like crazy!

Not content with the jackpot being triggered on the Mega Moolah progressive twice in the space of six days, another player won a big money jackpot on the Major Millions progressive just a short time later and now another lucky customer, also from Canada, is celebrating after landing another massive progressive jackpot win on the Treasure Nile progressive.

What is the Treasure Nile slot?

The Treasure Nile slot is based on an Egyptian theme and it is a 5x3 reel progressive jackpot game. It is a relatively simple slot to follow as there are just nine pay lines in play and you can select how many of the nine you wish to play on a spin. There is just one coin size, 0.50, for this slot which means you can wager from 0.50 up to 4.50 per spin, in your chosen currency.

However, the way the progressive jackpot is paid out is that you need to land the highest paying symbol, King Tutankhamun's Death Mask, on the ninth pay line. Therefore, to stand a chance of winning the progressive, you need to have all nine pay lines in play. So, to play for the progressive jackpot, this will cost you 4.50 per spin each time.

Now of course, some people may not want to wager so much money on each spin and for those customers that prefer lower stakes games, other progressive games like Mega Moolah and Tunzamunni offer them the chance to play for a big jackpot for less per spin.

The standard jackpot in the game is 6,000 coins, which when you consider you are playing for a coin value of 0.50, is still a 3,000 prize, which is not to be sniffed at however, when you consider that the progressive jackpot for the Treasure Nile slot is often in the hundreds of thousands in your local currency, then you quickly understand why people tend to play this slot and target the progressive rather than the standard jackpot.

Treasure Nile's only bonus features are a Pyramid Wild symbol which can substitute for other symbols (but not the scatter) to award wins, however you cannot use a Wild symbol to trigger the progressive jackpot prize. The Golden Scarab beetle scatter is the other bonus feature, offering pay outs of between 5x and 50x your stake depending on how many of the symbols you land across the reels on a single spin.

The Treasure Nile slot does not have any free spins or other bonus features other than those listed above and of course, the big progressive jackpot fund.

What do we know about the latest lucky Treasure Nile slot winner?

So far details on the winner are somewhat sketchy as with any big win it can take time to process. What we do know is that the lucky winner took home the biggest jackpot win of 2017 when they claimed 355,242.68 top prize in Canadian Dollars at the popular Zodiac Casino.

This jackpot win also came hot on the heels of another win as just three days earlier when a player claimed a 253,310.47 win.

So far, by our estimates the jackpot on the Treasure Nile slot has been paid out a staggering 38 times in 2017 so far, however this latest win is by far the largest single jackpot prize awarded in 2017, eclipsing the 209,431 prize paid out on June 25th 2017.

Indeed, it is the largest progressive jackpot amount any Treasure Nile slot player has won on the game in the past three years.

Why does the currency matter if it is a single progressive jackpot prize on Treasure Nile?

One thing that may be confusing to some slot gamers is if every player across the globe pays into the Treasure Nile progressive jackpot fund on each spin, why when the jackpot is triggered, does it not always reset back to its standard seeding amount?

The answer to this lies in the fact that there are exchange rates for each of the currencies used on the Treasure Nile slot, so a player playing the game for say £4.50 in British Pounds, would be paying slightly more than a player playing for CA$4.50. The actual progressive jackpot default currency is British Pounds, so when a player wins the amount in British pounds, then the slot will revert back to its seed amount.

However, when a player wins in a different currency, while the amount they win stays the same, the fact they played and get paid in a different currency can mean that not all the progressive fund may be used up when a player not based in the UK wins.

For example, if the progressive jackpot fund was 100,000 and a player won that amount is US dollar, at today's exchange rates, that equates to £75,960 British pounds. Therefore, there would be £24,040 remaining in the progressive jackpot balance, which is then added to the seeding amount to give you a larger initial progressive jackpot prize.

This same process is used on other progressive jackpot slots, such as Mega Moolah, in order to calculate how much of the progressive jackpot remains in the pot once a jackpot has been paid out in any currency other than British pounds.
