Three Pyramids and that Familiar Sound
If you have ever been to any pub or club in Australia then you will be familiar with the dinging sound that signifies a Respin Feature on the Queen of the Nile Pokie machine. Get 3 Pyramids and you get 15 free spins - with all wins multiplied X3. Get 4 Pyramids and you get 25 Free Games. Get 5 Pyramids and not only do you get a huge initial payout of 100 times your bet, you also get 100 free games - with all wins multiplied by x3 of course!
The Queen substitutes all other symbols on the gaming panel (except the scatter symbol) to make winning combos.
The scatter symbol is represented by the pyramid icon. Landing more than three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the free spins bonus. In total, you will be awarded 15 free spins with 3x multiplier. This means that all the wins during the free spins are multiplied by three. The cream of the bonus games is experienced when you land 5 scatter symbols. You will be awarded 100 free spins. The free spins can be retriggered.
If you are lucky enough and land 5 scatter symbols, you could win up to 9,000 coins in a non-progressive jackpot. This being a slow variance game, you can expect to win frequently. Something to note though is that even the Pokies 90% winning rate algorithm cannot beat pure luck and as such choosing to double up your win (or multiply x4 with a suit gamble) means you have the potential to win upwards of $20,000 - the sky is the limit - well lady luck probably has something to say too. Summary Queen of the Nile The Queen of the Nile has been such a popular Australian pokies machine that it has spawned no less than three more editions, including but not limited to Queen of the Nile II, Queen of the Nile Legends, King of the Nile and then they started getting a tad silly and brought out Kings and Queens of the Nile - or something equally moronic.
Ever Seen 5 Cleopatra Substitutes in a row?! ... and they were only betting 40c ?!?!
Actually this raises a good point that all us pokie players know is true but the powers that be claim is simply not the case - that being that machines know what you bet and they sit and wait for you to lower your bet before giving you the feature or BIG WIN
