A While on the Nile slot is another video slot designed by NextGen. Based on Merlin’s Magic Respin, the 5-reel, 50-payline online slot has plenty to offer in terms of bonus features, multipliers, free spins and fixed-coin jackpot. As the name would suggest, A While on the Nile is a Cleopatra Spin-off from the NextGen Australian based slot developers.
SuperBet Game Feature
The SuperBet feature presents players with the option to set the wild multiplier. In this instance: the higher the multiplier, the higher the bet. In essence, a player has to pay extra for the chance to win a higher pot prize. To get a 10X multiplier, the player has to invest 300x higher his base bet. This feature could break or make a player’s bankroll.
Wilds and Scatters
As this online slot is Egyptian-themed, one can expect the usual Egyptian symbols such as scarabs, Eye of Horus, Pharaoh’s staff, Princess, glittering jewels and other artifacts.
The Wild is the Pharaoh and appears exclusively on reels 2, 3 and 4. Since the Wild is stacked, opting for the SuperBet option could end with a sizeable pot prize.
The Scatters are the scarab and the diamond. When a player gets at least 3 diamond scatters, five free spins are triggered. When the scarab is hit, the player gets the chance to earn multipliers on the payout.
As mentioned earlier, the diamond scatter offers 5 free spins. This bonus feature is high-paying and quick-moving. After each spin, extra symbols turn Wild which is great since it is a sure win on each spin. If the SuperBet option is on, the multipliers will increase the player’s winnings. This bonus feature can be re-triggered.
The second bonus feature is triggered when the scarab appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. This feature is the scarab hunt and entails picking scarabs for cash prizes. It stops when the player picks “collect”. This is not as fun but the cash prize is quite impressive.
A While on the Nile online slot is well-designed and deserves to be a new favorite for fans of NextGen slots especially if you’ve got a soft spot for Egyptian themed Cleopatra spin-offs.
