Take a cruise through ancient Egypt on Treasure Nile, Microgamings 5 reel, 9 pay line progressive jackpot slot. On your journey you will encounter powerful pharaohs, the symbolic ankh, lord of the underworld, Anubis, the historic pyramids and the mysterious sphinx – and you may just pick up a big win or two along the way.
Treasure Nile is a fixed coin 50 cents per line slot, with a $4.50 maximum bet. All nine lines must be played in order to qualify to win the progressive jackpot, paid when five pharaoh symbols appear on the 9th pay line. The Pyramid symbol is wild and can substitute for all symbols except the scattered scarab beetle and the Pharaoh symbol to win the progressive jackpot on the 9th line. However, the Pyramid can substitute for the Pharaoh on all other lines and wins.
The second highest winning combination pays 6000 coins – paid when five pharaohs, pyramids or combination of the two line up on an active pay line. The Sphinx is the next highest ranking symbol and the other symbols rank in order of importance – Anubis, the ankh, the necklace, cobra, scroll, pillar, boat and finally wheat which is the lowest paying symbol.
Treasure Nile also features a generous scatter bonus, triggered when 3 or more scarabs appear anywhere on the reels. 3 scarabs pay 5 times the total number of credits staked, 4 scarabs pay 10 times your stake and all 5 scarabs pay 50 times your stake. The scatter bonus appears often, and helps to offset the relatively high cost of each spin.
The slot is enhanced by excellent graphics, animated reel symbols and authentic sound bites; it also has a range of features to improve your playing experience including auto play, and a full breakdown of your play history.
Treasure Nile has made online casino history on several occasions – launched in 2001 it was the internets very first 9 line progressive jackpot slot. Just three weeks after its launch, it paid out what was then a massive jackpot of $389,843.85, breaking all previous progressive jackpot records. Altogether, in its first month online it paid out three jackpots in excess of $100,000 each. The minimum jackpot value is $40,000, and it resets to that amount whenever the progressive is won. An average jackpot win is between $85,000 and $95,000, however the highest jackpot ever paid out on the slot was in excess of half a million dollars.
In 2005 a new mobile version of Treasure Nile was launched, becoming the third progressive jackpot slot to join the Microgaming Mobile suite, the others being Major Millions and Fruit Fiesta. The mobile games share the same progressive jackpot as their casino counterparts, so you have the same chance of taking home a big win whether you are playing online or on your cell phone.
At $4.50 per spin, Treasure Nile may be the most expensive of Microgamings fixed coin progressive slots, but its frequent payouts and generous wins, make it an exciting and highly playable slot.
