Queen of the Nile 2 is an online slot game created by casino software developer Aristocrat. This game has been adapted for online play from the popular land-based casino game of the same name, and features the same game play with updated graphics and special features.
Queen of the Nile 2 has 5 reels and 25 paylines in a standard slot game format which has been created using a classic Egyptian theme. The game features both scatter and wild symbols, as well as free spins bonus games that feature 4 different prize options and can be retriggered. There is also a gamble feature in Queen of the Nile 2, and any winning combinations containing a wild symbol will be doubled with a 2x win multiplier.
Game Play and Graphics
The reel symbols in Queen of the Nile 2 all relate to the theme, which is centred on the mystery of Ancient Egypt and the power and wealth of the Queen of the Nile herself, the famed Egyptian queen Cleopatra. This online slot captures the majesty of the Nile and its beloved queen with simple but striking game graphics. Even the backdrop of the game resembles an Egyptian temple wall covered in detailed carved hieroglyphics, while the reels are covered in golden desert sand.
Symbols in the game include pyramids, golden pharaohs and scarab beetles, lotus flowers, Cleopatra’s thick gold bracelet, an eye hieroglyph and Cleopatra herself. There are also boldly coloured mobile keno symbols which appear as though they have been dug out of the sand, further adding to the Egyptian feel of the game.
Wild Symbol and Multiplier
Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile, is the wild symbol of the game, and can substitute all game symbols expect for the pyramid scatter. Additionally, any winning reel combination containing a wild will automatically be doubled thanks to a 2x wild win multiplier.
Scatter Symbol and Free Spins Feature
The glowing pyramids symbol is Queen of the Nile 2’s scatter symbol. Dropping 3 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the game’s free spins bonus feature.
Once the feature has been activated, players will be redirected to a screen where they may choose from 4 different bonus options, each displayed on a vibrant blue, red, purple or green pyramid. Players can choose from 5 free spins + 10x multiplier on those wins, 10 free spins+ 5x multiplier, 15 free spins + 3x multiplier or 20 free spins + 2x multiplier. Furthermore, the free spins feature can be retriggered by landing 3 or more glowing pyramids scatter symbols on the reels during the feature.
Queen of the Nile 2 also includes a gamble feature. Players can double or quadruple the value of their latest win by correctly guessing the colour or suit of a hidden playing card. A correct guess as to the colour of the card will result in double the bet being paid out, while picking the right suit will pay out quadruple the bet. 5 correct guesses is the limit on the gamble feature.
