Queen of the Nile 2 Theme
Queen of the Nile 2 builds on the success of the original by ensuring that all of the graphical and audio hallmarks of the first slot remain intact for this sequel. Players are once again sent on a quest of discovery in Ancient Egypt, with all manner of treasures dictating their success in scooping up huge piles of cash. Naturally, the Queen of the Nile herself makes a return to the reels, and fans of the first game will notice that both the Pyramids and a whole host of ancient treasures make their own returns, each with subtle graphical improvements. Even the standard playing card symbols have received something of an overhaul, appearing as they do to have recently been dug up from the sands.
Gameplay and Prizes
While the original Queen of the Nile was a slot that launched a whole host of new features into the slot gaming world, the sequel retains everything that made it so popular with only slight tweaks to bring it up to date. While the five reel format remains the same, a further five win lines have been added, giving players a choice of between one and 25 on each spin. The coin bet values have also increased, meaning that players can stake anything from $0.01 to $4 on each win line. In turn, these increases mean that the maximum bet on Queen of the Nile 2 is an enticing $100, which is $40 more than on the original and offers even more scope to attract players of varying style and budgets. In practice, of course, players here at Mr Gamez can play Queen of the Nile 2 purely for fun, meaning that their budget is unrestricted and they can opt either to test out realistic strategies or play like the highest of high rollers and scoop the prizes that go with it.
It would be remiss of Aristocrat to cut any features from the follow up to such a successful game, and fans of the original will be pleased to learn that both the Gamble and autoplay functions make a welcome return to the reels.
Features and Bonuses
Everything that we have covered so far in this overview will strike fans of the original Queen of the Nile slot as being somewhat familiar – the symbols in play are largely the same and in spite of a few tweaks, gameplay follows a similar pattern to before. However, what will quickly stand out to players that are moving on from the original to Queen of the Nile 2 is the combination of features, some of which are identical to the first game while others are brand new and bring a new perspective to the slot action.
First up is the Queen of the Nile herself. Not only does she make her second appearance as a symbol on the reels, but she also fulfils the same function. She is a typical wild card, transforming to fill in gaps in winning combinations. Some would say that the addition of five further win lines makes her slightly more valuable in the sequel as she can fill in multiple symbols at once – indeed, she can cover for anything other than the Pyramid scatter.
The free game round offered by the Pyramid is one of the most striking differences between the first and second Queen of the Nile slots. Whereas players of the original were awarded a set number of free spins when seeing three or more Pyramid symbols, the second game gives them more of a choice over how they approach their bonus round. Players have the opportunity to take either more spins with a lower multiplier or fewer spins with all prizes increased by a higher amount – a decision that is often based on practice, personal preference and how the reels seem to be landing. For example, if the player feels that they are seeing fewer winning spins but for higher amounts, they may opt for more spins at a lower multiplier for as many winning hits as possible. In specific terms, players have four options, ranging from twenty free spins and a two times multiplier to five spins with a ten times multiplier.
