Prize of the Nile
Prize of the Nile is amongst the newest slot machines to be released by Greentube but is as you already might know, far from the first of it´s kind in terms of theme. Ancient Egypt has been a popular theme several developers keep on going back to again and again, slots filled with Pharaohs, pyramids, mummies and everything else you usually associate with Ancient Egypt. However, this time round Greentube has decided to combine Ancient Egypt with the classic fruit theme. Prize of the Nile might have some surprises in store for us after all.
Greentube has given the slot a standard set up with 5 reels and 3 rows, with a total of 30 fixed pay lines. The maximum and minimum bets are pretty unusual with the minimum set at a high of €1.20 per round while the maximum bet per spin only reaches a €9, making it not really ideal for either casual players or high rollers. Wins will be formed on the reels for three or more of a kind, while the maximum win of the game is 4 000x your total bet. Prize of the Nile is a high volatility slot and has an RTP of 95%.
There is more going on in this slot than we had expected, with a total of 6 fixed jackpots, a free spins round that can be re-triggered and a gamble feature. Wild symbols and scatter symbols are also a part of the game.
As mentioned above, you will be happy to know that there are some fun features going on in this slot. The wild symbol and the scatter symbol is part of the game, with the scatter being responsible for triggering the free spins feature. During the free spins feature you will also get multipliers. However, the main feature of the game is the Pay Day prizes, which are the six different fixed jackpots on offer.
The wild symbol is one of the more important symbols of the slot and is represented by Cleopatra herself. Cleopatra will be able to replace all other symbols in the slot whenever it can be of help, in order to create winning combinations. It is also the symbol that will give the highest wins, should you get the reels covered in wild symbols, this could result in wins up to 2 000x your total stake during the base game and even more during the free spins feature.
In this bonus feature, the scatter symbols are the ones to keep an eye out for. Should you get 3 Golden Pyramids anywhere on the reels 2, 3 and 4 then the feature will be triggered. The Pyramid Bonus feature will start out with a Golden Pyramid appearing to randomly award you with 10, 15 or 20 free spins. During the free spins, all wins will also get a multiplier of x3, meaning all your wins during the bonus feature will be tripled.
During the Pyramid Bonus feature, there will also be a re-trigger feature available. This will be triggered should another 3 Golden Pyramids land on the reels again, which will result in you being rewarded with even more free spins. Yet again, you will randomly receive 10, 15 or 20 free spins. The Golden Pyramid scatter symbols can only appear on reel 2, 3 and 4.
Pay Day prizes
During the main game, you should definitely cross your fingers in hope of landing some of the Pay Day symbols. Starting from 3 symbols on the reels and going up to a maximum of 10 Pay Day symbols on the reels at once. Depending on how many of these symbols you land on the reels at once, you will receive one of the six available jackpots which are shown at the top of the reel set. For 3 or the Pay Day symbols you will receive 1x your total bet, 5 of the symbols will get you 10x your total bet while 10 of the symbols will award you with a total of 4 000x your total bet.
Design and Symbols
In Prize of the Nile, you will be heading toward the famous river Nile, where you will be on the lookout for a Pharaoh queen as well as all the riches she possesses. In other words, this slot will be taking you into the very heart of Egypt and even though you probably are thinking exactly what we were thinking, which was “I have seen this before”, there is actually a little twist. Greentube has put together the well-known Ancient Egypt theme with another well-known theme, the classic fruit slot.
This, of course, means that you will be seeing slightly different symbols on the reels that what you would have expected from an Egyptian-themed slot. Instead, you will be seeing symbols such as cherries, the BAR symbol both single and double, golden bells and also single, double and triple red sevens. The triple red sevens are the symbol of the highest value amongst the regular symbols.
Of course, there are a couple of special symbols that are part of the game too. The wild symbol of the game shows Cleopatra herself and will be able to substitute all other symbols in the game aside from the scatter and the jackpot symbol. The wild is also the symbol of the highest value, paying up to 66.66x your stake on a single pay line. The scatter symbol shows off a golden pyramid and will trigger the free spins feature, as for the Pay Day symbols, these will trigger bigger wins and you can win one of six available jackpots.
Our Thoughts on Prize of the Nile
Prize of the Nile will certainly not top any top lists on our side and there are several reasons for this. Firstly, seeing that the theme of the slot is one that has been used over and over again, they do not get any points for originality, even though they did mix it up by using symbols from a classic fruit slot. Even though the slot does offer some pretty good payouts, it also has a low RTP and high volatility, which isn't great.
On a more positive note, there are some features going on here which make sure the slot is slightly more entertaining. With the free spins feature that can be retriggered and the Pay Day prizes that consist of a total of six different jackpots, there is actually some fun awaiting in Prize of the Nile. So if that is the most important part of a slot for you or if you maybe already liked the slot after trying it at a land-based casino, then it might be worth giving a spin or two.
