The Legend of the Nile slot game has an Egyptian theme to it. It was made by Betsoft Gaming and is a video slot which has a progressive jackpot, with six reels and a cool 15 pay-lines. It is considered a low to medium variance machine, one which carries an RTP of 95.62%, a modest number for the player.
Just one look at the slot will tell you everything about the theme of this game. It is based on ancient Egypt with pyramids in the distance and a sphinx on the right side of the screen. As the name suggests, the River Nile is very much part of the game-play of this slot. The symbols are also based on Egypt and come in the form of hieroglyphics, forming a cluster-game style, like many slots we see today.
The symbols of note are the Ra, Isis and Anubis symbols, all of which have their own link to gods of ancient Egypt. They are the symbols which pay the highest, so these are the ones you want to see on the reels.
Betting and winning
The coins for this game come between 0.01 and 1.00 with bet levels of 1-5, so the most you can bet on any one spin is £75. Once you have chosen your bet level and the number of pay-lines you want to play, it is time to activate the game.
Similar to a game of Tetris, symbols fall down the reels, rather than the reels spinning like in a regular slot. Once you get a cluster of the same symbol, they explode to offer up space for bigger and better wins. Keep an eye on the Ra Power Bar on the left-hand side of the machine; this highlights how close you are to activating the features.
Ra Trail feature
This is the feature you want to activate, as it is the one which launches a shot at the progressive jackpot as well as free spins. Any winning combo with the Ra symbol on it triggers the free spins game and earns you the 400x multiplier on your original bet. Those who are extra lucky could smash the progressive jackpot.
Anubis Trail feature
One of the lesser features that can be worth activating is the Anubis Trail feature. This god of the underworld trail can earn you up to 10 free spins and can be re-triggered so the amount of spins you can win is endless.
Isis Trail feature
This feature is just like the Anubis Trail feature but with one significant difference. You will still get 10 free spins by launching this feature, but the payouts come along at a much higher rate. Isis is the Queen of Heaven and is worth more than any other symbol in the game. Any wins involving her translates into bigger proportions.
The negative of Egyptian slots is that there can be a sameness to them, but there is no escaping the fact that the visuals of the Legend of the Nile game are anything other than spectacular, and the game-play is decent enough. There is enough difference between this and the other Egyptian offerings to make it worth your while to play.
