Queen of the Nile 2 POKIE
Queen of the Nile II is a 5-reel pokie themed around Cleopatra, a legendary ruler in ancient Egypt. The spirit of the great civilization is everywhere: on symbols and in hieroglyphs behind the reels. The highlight of the pokie is four selectable free spin modes where a multiplier of x10 gives you superb chances of winning big money. Wild symbols will not come amiss either, on the score of their being able to double the wins. Fast play, easy rules and a massive $15,000 jackpot are a wonderful incentive to join the trip down the Nile and try to capture the untold riches of the early civilization.

The pokie has 25 lines and you can decrease their number if needed. All winning combinations pay left to right when on dedicated paylines. The game is a bit outdated by today’s standards as it was released back in 2003 so its art and graphics will not take your breath away. Anyway, this is a nice old game that perfectly follows the Egyptian theme and offers some very big awards. The set of non-feature symbols used in the pokie consists of two subgroups:
- Six playing card icons from nines to aces. If you’ve ever played Aristocrat pokies, you certainly got accustomed to their using card values as low-paying symbols. This game is no exception. The six card symbols are at the low end of the paytable with the prizes ranging between x2 and x125
- Five thematic symbols that are widely associated with the history and culture of ancient Egypt. They are Lotus Flower ($1250), Eye of Ra ($1250), Scarab ($2000), Gold Ring ($3750) and Gold Pharaoh’s Mask ($3750). In brackets are given the maximum winning amounts for a combination of five matching symbols.
Regardless of a cluttered user interface, bet settings are adjusted by only four buttons not counting MAX. The number of lines is changed by “+” and “-“ buttons near the Lines indicator, while a bet cost per line is adjusted by another set of “+” and “-“ in the range of $0.01 to $5. So the minimum and maximum bets are $0.25 and $125 per spin.
Cleopatra, the centerpiece of the pokie, is a wild substitute that can be used as a replacement for any symbol when it is needed to complete a combination. The wild in Queen of the Nile II is a very useful component since it doubles payouts when substituting. Besides, it is able to create its own winning combos and five wilds will bring you the pokie’s first jackpot of $15,000.
Four free spin options
The main highlight of the pokie is a free spin feature that is activated when 3 or more scattered Pyramids land on the reels. On a new screen, you are prompted to make one of the four choices that would suit best your gaming style:
- 5 free spins with all wins multiplied by x10
- 10 spins at x5
- 15 spins at x3
- 20 spins at x2.
If you want to get the chance of hitting a big win, opt for the first option listed above. If you are adverse to risk, select the last option in the list which comes with the lowest multiplier.
Along with triggering free spins, the scatter has excellent payout capabilities. Rolling up two to five of them in any position awards x2 to x100 times a total bet. If you place the maximum wager, the top scatter win would be $12,500.
Gambling what is already yours is a great way to increase your wins by x2, x4 and greater. The gamble feature starts upon a Gamble button click and this is an option that you can ignore and continue the base game. In the Gamble feature you are to choose a card color or suit and double/quadruple winnings if guessed correctly.
