Another Cleopatra slot game but Queen of the Nile is one of the most popular

Apparently lost to American antiquity is the record of which old-fashioned one-armed bandit-type slot machine was the first to be based on Ancient Egypt and/or Cleopatra. Some sources suggest it was in the early days of the Golden Age of Las Vegas, when themes for slot machines were expanding beyond fruit machines filled with cherry and BAR symbols.

How old is the Queen of the Nile slot by Aristocrat, really?

All right, we’re exaggerating here. The online version of the Queen of the Nile slot from Australia-based casino game manufacturers/designers Aristocrat dates back to “only” 2007, but that’s ancient in online years. And the original “real-life” casino version of this game has got to go back a good decade and a half earlier. To put it plainly, Queen of the Nile is one simple no-frills, low-f/x slots game. To describe this slot in a single word, we’d go with “dated.”

What are the basics of the Queen of the Nile slots game?

The Queen of the Nile slots game is a 5-reel, 20-payline slots game in which between 2¢ and $2.50 per payline (or between 40¢ and $50 total when covering all paylines – and even in a slots game this simple, you must cover all paylines) per spin.

What are the Queen of the Nile slot’s symbols?

Within the Queen of the Nile slots game’s symbol set are all the usual suspects: jewelry, King Tut, scarabs, the Eye of Osiris icon and the desert rose. Also included are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 symbols because those Ancient Egyptians were so well-kown for their fondness of card games. (Hey, why do you think they invented papyrus?)

Since the Queen of the Nile slot is relatively low on excitement, you’ll definitely want to look out for the scatter (the pyramid) and wild (Cleopatra herself) symbols. Wild Cleopatra also pays a 2x bonus multiplier on wins and a 9,000-coin bet for lining up five on an active payline.

Does the scatter launch free spins in Queen of the Nile?

Yes! Land three or more scatters to launch 15 free spins with a 3x bonus multipliers with, sadly, no retriggering or extra bonus symbols. See? Dated.

Is this the only slots game called Queen of the Nile?

Are you kidding? Aristocrat has at east one sequel to this game (though we’ll tell, it ain’t much of a sequel at all), and “Queen of the Nile” has been since the 1950s a pretty generic name for a slot machine. This isn’t the only Nile Queen slots game out there by a long shot.

Such a connection makes sense, too, as the land of Cleopatra shared much in common with Sin City in terms of desert clime and decadence. Whenever the invention of the first Egypt-themed slot game, Queen of the Nile was probably among the first.
