Quick verdict
Queen of the Nile is a solidly made slot, that doesn’t do much to impress and is let down by a miserly return to player.

Queen of the Nile review

Theme and Storyline

Cleopatra, the ancient Egyptian queen, is the main character of Aristocrat’s Queen of the Nile slot game. In it you are transported back to ancient Egypt to play for the hand of the Queen who was the lover of Julius Caesar.

Around you are the Pyramids of Giza, hieroglyphs, golden scarabs and papyrus plants inscribed on the reels which will decide if you will make your fortune in Egypt, or go home with your hands empty and a story to tell.

Ancient Egypt with its recognisable iconography is always a good setting for a slot machine, and here its rendered with rather more grace than some of Aristocrat’s other offerings.

Graphics, Sounds and Animations

The imagery of Ancient Egypt is rendered in a pleasing style against sandstone backdrops. It is not the prettiest slot out there but manages to be clear and inoffensive.

Sound design is very basic, just a few electronic bells and for a win and a brief snatch of music when the reels turn. This doesn’t particularly fit with the setting, nor is it all that appealing to listen to.

The animations are clean and simple. They do the job without drawing attention to themselves which is all as it should be.

Gameplay

Queen of the Nile is a five by three slot and has twenty win lines of which you can play one, five, ten, fifteen, or twenty on a spin.

The gamble feature allows you to risk your winnings from any given spin in a game of red or black. For the more adventurous Pharaoh you can also bet on the suit of the card for a quadruple or nothing bet.

Overall the gameplay is clean and smooth, if very basic.

Wilds, Bonuses and Free Spins

There are two special symbols to look out for when playing – the Wild symbol and the Scatter symbol.

Cleopatra herself appears on the Wild symbol. It not only plays as any symbol except for the Scatter, but it will also play as itself if it falls on a winline left to right. Get five in a row and you can take down 9,000 times your bet per line. If you win by using Wild symbol as a substitute for another symbol that win is doubled.

The Scatter pays a little bit if you hit two or more, but the real profit comes from the free spins you win when you land three or more Scatter symbols. If you trigger the bonus you receive 15 free spins during which all your wins are tripled, and if you land another spin with three or more Scatters you can retrigger the feature for an additional 15 free spins.

Bet Sizes, RTP and Variance

Queen of the Nile has a disappointingly low return to player of 94.88%, which is rather lower than the industry average of around 96%. This is a major detraction from this slot.

Queen of the Nile has medium to high variance. The site we tested allowed a range of bets from €/£/$0.01 to €/£/$200 per spin.

Conclusion

As a slot Queen of the Nile is not too bad, the design is unimpressive but does what it needs to to make the game playable. The lack of features is not necessarily a problem.

However, the RTP is far too low to recommend this slot, we suggest maybe hunting up a game with a lower vig elsewhere on our site.
