This 2002 pokie is an Aristocrat classic, still as popular today as it was on release and one of the best pokies of all time. It uses the Aristocrat MKVI hardware, has 5 reels and is a video slot with an eternally popular Egyptian theme.
Although the game was a spin of of the even more popular Queen of the Nile, King of the Nile has it’s own merits and set of hard core followers – it seems there’s just something about that Egyptian theme that gets us gamblers excited. We’ve talked about what it is here in the Online Pokies 4 U office and we think it’s the riches, the gold, the mystery and the aspiration of the theme that makes it so playable and enjoyable… Subconsciously we are thinking that we’re going to find hidden riches and the the reels will lead us to untold wealth!
As for the mechanics of the slot itself it’s classic Aristrocrat – it’s generally housed in a MVP cabinet with a fourteen button layout and the video resolution is a respectable 640×480 – the win lines pay left to right with the exception of the scatter symbols which pay any way. As for bonus rounds there’s a classic free spin feature (in which the wins count as triple for the player). There is also a players choice bonus round available at the end of the free game round in which players are able to cash in their winnings, take a hidden prize or take the free game feature again.
Overall King of the Nile is a great game and deserves its place among the list of modern poker machine classics.
