Treasure Nile Review



When you go on the adventure that comes about in the game called Treasure Nile, you know that the reward at the end of the journey, if you can attain it, is going to be plentiful, because this is what is known as a progressive pokie, and that gets a lot of people excited indeed.

This game consists of five reels and nine paylines, and there is just one coin six (AU$0.50). So if you want to bet the maximum, you are betting nine coins. And let's face it; a lot of people who play this game are going to bet that maximum number. There is a good reason for it, because there is no way the player is going to be eligible for the progressive jackpot otherwise. So how does this progressive prize work? Well, what Microgaming (the designer and developer) does is takes a little out of the Treasure Nile pokies in all of the casinos they service. So there is a massive amount of money coming in. This is what makes for the big jackpots, and consequently their attractiveness.

There is a wild symbol in this game, and it is the Wild Pyramids symbol. Anyone who is familiar with pokies knows that the "wild" can complete any winning combination, and that is the case here. However, wins that are produced with the help of a wild do not carry with them a multiplier. You will also notice a scatter, which is the Scarab symbol. Ordinarily, a scatter can appear anywhere on the reels, and if three or more of them are there, the player is taken to a bonus game of some kind (usually free spins). But there is no free spins game in Treasure Nile, so instead the scatters simply result in a cash prize.

The progressive jackpot symbol in this pokie is the Pharaoh, and that is what you are going to be hoping for. There are, as mentioned, nine paylines in Treasure Nile, and when five Pharaohs appear on a payline, you'll get paid. But there is a difference between getting those Pharaohs on any of the first eight payline and the ninth. When they are on Payline #9, they the progressive jackpot is then won. The starting point for the progressive jackpot in Treasure Nile is AU$40,000. It pays off more frequently than many other progressive pokies - an average of seven times per month, and it will often amount deep into six figures.

As we mentioned, there are some things about this game that make it perhaps something that "small game hunters' may not be all that interested in. When there isn't a free spins game, that takes away some of the extra chance for payouts, although the cash reward for the scatters isn't so bad. Microgaming customarily has a Gamble Bonus Game as part of its pokies, and that offers a chance to double any win, but you won't find it here. However, if you don't want to sit around and wait forever to be in line for a progressive jackpot, this is a better choice than most progressive poker machines.
