Treasure Nile 5-Reel Online Slot
The Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot game is a progressive slot that was developed by Microgaming. It was released in 2004 and is the first five reel and nine pay line online slot they ever developed. The online slot has remained a popular game due to its progressive jackpot.
The online slot game features scatter wins, wild symbols and a progressive jackpot but there are no free spins or bonus games. The betting options are limited to a coin value set at a denomination of 0.50. There is a maximum limit of nine coins per spin so one coin activates one pay line. Playing nine coins will mean all pay lines are activated.
Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot can be played in a regular or expert mode. Activated expert mode means auto play can be set. The control panel beneath the reels is where settings are accessed and adjusted.
Treasure Nile Theme and Symbols
Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot has an Ancient Egyptian theme which is represented by symbols that are colourful and simple Ancient Egyptian related images. The reels appear as scrolls and are set on a purple background. The background sound effects are also related to the theme.
King Tut’s Pharaoh Mask is the highest paying symbol. If not involved in awarding the progressive jackpot it will pay out the fixed jackpot of 6 000 coins for five.
The remaining regular paying symbols include the Sphinx, Anubis, Ankh, a necklace, a gold cobra, a hieroglyphic scroll, a pillar, a boat and wheat. These Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot symbols pay out for two or three to five identical symbols on a pay line which runs both left to right and right to left.
All of the Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot symbols pay out amounts that start from as little as one coin but five Sphinx symbols and five Anubis symbols pay out up to 3 000 coins and 1 500 coins respectively.
The Scatter Symbols and Wilds
Gold scarab beetles are the Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot game’s scatter symbols. These are the only symbols that pay out for landing anywhere on the reels. Three, four or five gold scarab scatters pay out 5x, 10x, or 50x the total bet amount.
A dusky view of pyramids is the image displayed on the Treasure Nile 5-Reel online slot game’s wild symbol. This is a typical wild symbol that will stand in as a symbol missing from a potential paying combination. The wild symbol cannot however replace a scarab beetle scatter symbol or help complete the combination of symbols needed to win the progressive jackpot.
How to Win the Progressive Jackpot
King Tut represents the symbol needed to win the Treasure Nile 5-Reel progressive jackpot prize. A spin must produce five of the King Tut symbols on the ninth pay line only in order to win and the maximum bet must be in play or the progressive jackpot will not be won.
The progressive jackpot amount is always displayed in an arrow above the five by three reel set. The jackpot amount constantly increases and can amount to hundreds of thousands.
