Like many of Aristocrat's land-based conversions, Queen of the Nile II isn't very arresting visually. The graphics are fine but don't expect anything too flashy and certainly not glossy HD. Symbols on the reels includes the usual selection of Egyptian goodies including the Eye of Horus, scarab beetle and the Pharaoh.
Cleopatra is the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Any winning combination in which Cleopatra appears will be boosted by a 2x multiplier with the payout doubled. Find 5 of the queen and you can look forward to a very tidy bankroll boost of 3,000 coins.
The pyramid symbol is the scatter – 2 or more will result in a payout of between two and 100 times your total stakes. Three or more will get you access to the bonus feature. Once triggered, you'll be given a choice of 4 free spin / multiplier combinations.
You can go for 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier, 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier, 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier or 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier. Look out for the scatters during the bonus feature too as the free spins can be re-triggered.
The volatility in Queen of the Nile II isn't as high as sometimes found in slots created by Aristocrat. The variance here is in the medium range so expect a steady stream of smaller wins and plenty of play for your money.
It may not be the most visually appealing slot we've come across but the wild bonus wins and the multipliers in the free spins round make Queen of the Nile II worth a closer look. Get lucky here and this trip up the famous river could yet result in treasure galore. This game is a classic though and did inspire IGT’s Cleopatra – however, it you’re looking for something a little more modern, Pyramid Quest for Immortality by Net Entertainment is superb and highly volatile.
