Treasure Nile is a clean, crisp Egyptian themed slot machine. With a Jackpot on tow, what’s not to like?
Well, actually, quite a bit. This 5 reel, 9 payline video slot from Microgaming felt dated online, never mind on mobile. That said; let’s see what’s great about this mobile slot. For one, it has a progressive jackpot hiding in its reels, which is one of the few available on mobile.
The graphics are, as mentioned, very well done, and we would even go so far as to say that it beats many of the standard Egyptian slots out there. We like the fact that instead of your usual high poker cards, you have the whole range of Egyptian symbols keeping you company. From the Sphinx on the Nile, to golden wheat, sacred Ankh’s and mysterious scrolls, with a few pyramids in there too, it ticks all the boxes.
What this should be is a great progressive slot for beginners. 9 paylines, nice theme, big jackpot and no features, it’s a simple mobile slot machine.
However, by over simplifying it, it’s taking away every choice, including your coin size. So every spin costs you 4.50, whether you like it or not. A little high for real beginners and, even for those of us more use to bigger bets, rather limiting.
We want choice! We want to be able to spin at 2, 10 or even 100. At least give us a range so we can decide what playing mood we are in.
Speaking of which, the jackpot isn’t random, and it can only be triggered if five King Tut symbols appear on the 9th payline with a maximum bet, not the easiest to accomplish.
