Ruby of the Nile Review

Ruby of the Nile is visually like any of the several slot games that abound on the Internet with the theme of ancient Egypt. The images and graphics are ornately crafted in a manner that creates the period look. There are four main thematic symbols. These are the Treasure Chest with hieroglyphic painting, Egyptian Queen, the god Anubis and Bennu the bird. The high value card symbols from Ace to Nine are boldly crafted in gold and each is set in a precious stone of a different color. There are three other symbols, which are the Ruby of the Nile Logo, Double Wild and Triple Wild. The Double Wild symbol is set in the Ankh and the Triple Wild is set in the Eye of Horus. The symbols are very beautiful to look at but have special meaning for those with some knowledge of Egyptian mythology. For, example Bennu is said to posses the soul of the sun god Ra and in the symbol the red ruby represents the sun. Read Full Review

Full Review - Ruby of the Nile (8.43)

The animations in Ruby of the Nile are restrained in keeping with the theme. There are mainly different light effects that make the symbols more pronounced when they appear in paying combinations. The background music is also appropriate.

Players can adjust all three betting options in Ruby of the Nile slot game. The coin size range is reasonably large. The permitted coin sizes are 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.25 and 0.50. Unfortunately this advantage is somewhat negated by the maximum number of coins, per line, which is five. There are 20 paylines, which is neither very high nor very low. Together these betting options combine to give a maximum total bet of 100 coins or 50.00 credits. The Microgaming Expert mode is available for convenience in setting the betting parameters.

Though Ruby of the Nile has a common theme it has a very unusual structure. Only the six high value card symbols offer line payouts. And if this low number is a turn off then the payouts offered are a bigger turn off. The largest payout for getting five Ace symbols in an active payline is only 75 coins, which really does not amount to anything. But this is compensated in various ways. There are two wild symbols in the slot game. The Double Wild doubles payouts and the Triple Wild triples payouts. The low number of line payouts are made up for by a higher than usual number of scatter payouts. There are four symbols that offer scatter payouts. These are Ruby of the Nile Logo, Queen, Bennu and Anubis. Unlike the line payouts, the scatter payouts are not low. The largest is 100 times the total bet for getting five Ruby of the Nile Logo symbols anywhere on the reels. Another attraction is that the two wild symbols substitute for the scatter symbols and multiply scatter payouts as well.

If the Treasure Chest symbol appears in the middle row on reel five then the free spins bonus round is triggered. The players are awarded up to 20 free spins, the number being chosen randomly. During the free spins all payouts are doubled. The free spins can be retriggered. Ruby on the Nile does not offer a bonus game on the second screen or a gamble game. Also there is no progressive jackpot.
