I've never been to Egypt, but I've certainly been on the Nile. Not the river but the game, hehehe. Which game? A While On The Nile game of course, a 50-paylines game with a minimum starting bet of a high 0.50 EUR per spin. To me, any game that starts with 0.50 EUR bet per spin, or higher, is a game designed to gobble up any player's credits faster, all for the game provider's benefits of course. Hence, I've never liked such games, and this A While On The Nile game is one of them. Not only that, I've never really liked most of NextGen games anyway, but that's just my personal taste.

Looking at the game's paytable revealed nothing exciting at all! The Pharaoh is the Wild symbol, but is a non-paying symbol, which I have never liked in any game. It is stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4, so it could provide lots of Wilds on the reels, but getting wins from them is a totally different matter. It hasn't worked for me so far! The Green Gem is the Scatter symbol, appearing only on reels 2, 3 and 4, pays a lousy 2x total bet for all 3 of them, and awards 5 free spins without any multiplier. Yeah, no doubt the free spins can be retriggered, but what good would that do if all the free spins are without any multiplier, except for what have been chosen before starting the game, but more on this a little later.

The Scarab is the Bonus symbol, yet another non-paying symbol, appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5 to award a Pick And Win Bonus game. Keep picking on 1 item at a time, out of all that 24 items shown, to win cash prizes. Getting a 'Collect' symbol ends the picking. My picks always ended on the 3rd or 4th pick, so that paid damn poorly, to say the least! The highest paying symbol is Cleopatra, but only at 1000x the line bet for getting 5 of her, which is equivalent to 20x the total bet. All the other symbols pay from 300x down to 50x the line bet, making the paytable a very low one.

Before starting the game, there is an option to choose the fixed multiplier for the game, both for the base game as well as for the free spins. At the minimum starting bet of 0.50 EUR, the fixed multiplier is 1x. For a 2x multiplier, the starting bet is doubled to 1.00 EUR. For a 10x multiplier, it is 3.50 EUR! What a ridiculous option, if you ask me! This game is designed only for high rollers, to benefit from the 10x multiplier feature. Low rollers like me just have to live with the damn 1x multiplier instead! I really hate this!


Well, I did play this game a few times over the years, but maybe about 3 or 4 times only, neverthelessly, but all of my plays ended in disaster. Even at the lowest 1x multiplier mode, this game was like a destructive hurricane all the while - on the Nile or off the Nile! So the title 'A While On The Nile' was very appropriate indeed. Why? Simply because, that's as long as you can stay on the Nile - for just a short while. Within minutes after that, you'd most probably end up in the Nile, at its riverbed, as I did! Sheesh!

A While on the Nile is a slot game created in the software company NextGen Gaming and comes with 50 pay-lines. I do not play so often NextGen Gaming games but a few games of this software company I really like. One of these games is this. A While on the Nile for the theme of course has Ancient Egypt. Almost all software providers have in their offer at least one game with this theme. I love games that have Ancient Egypt for theme.

The graphics and sound are here quite ok. When it comes to features here are a few. There is also the wild symbol that substitutes all other symbols except the scatter symbol. Then, there is the Scarab bonus feature. This is a classic pick up bonus. You click on the symbols until you click the symbol below that says "collect". So here you have the free spins bonus. This bonus can be reached with at least 3 scatter symbols with jewel. You get 5 free spins and free spins can be retriggered. The most interesting feature in my opinion in this game is "Super Bet feature". This feature you can activate by clicking on the tab that says "super bet". Unlike the regular spin in a super bet spin the wild symbol can pay up to 10x bet if replaces some of the other symbols.

A While on the Nile is a game that I discovered some 2-3 months ago in the Casino Luck. I liked the game at first sight. Later, after playing here when I had a few decent wins, A While on the Nile has become my favorite NextGen Gaming game. For about half an hour I spent here, I earned more than 150 euros. After that, I returned a few times to the game in a number of different online casinos. When all is added up, I think I'm in a big plus when it comes to this great game. This is the main reason that for A While on the Nile I give a solid 8 out of 10 possible stars.

A While on the Nile is another game with ancient Egypt as a theme from NextGen Gaming. There are a few more other games with this theme from this software provider but this is the only one with 50 paylines. This game is also part of the group of games that have the superbet option.

When I first played this game I saw that it is very similar to Merlin’s Millions. The concept and features are the same, they even have the same number of paylines only the symbols and background music is different. The wild symbol here is the Pharaoh and he can come stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. With the superbet option enabled all wins that include a wild can go from x2 up to x 10 depending on the level you set it. At max superbet the minimum bet to play this game is 3.5 euros so if you want to chase some big win have a big bankroll prepared.

From the bonus features this game offers a free spins bonus and a cash bonus. The cash bonus is triggered when you get 3 scarab symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5. Here the entire screen turns into scarabs and you choose until you hit collect and the bonus ends. Here you usually get 3-4 choices so the wins are about 15-20 x bet.

The second bonus feature of the game is the free spins bonus. It is triggered when you get 3 Jewels on reels 2, 3 and 4. Here you are awarded with 5 free spins and you can get extra wild and full reels of wilds. Combined with the superbet option in theory you can have some nice wins here.


Overall I have played this game a few times but I can’t say that it is really worth your money. The paytable is pretty poor except the Cleopatra symbol. The wins are small to medium and sometimes it takes a lot of spins to get the free spins bonus. It is really disappointing to see that you lost 200 euros playing with max superbet just to win a small 20 euros in the free spins bonus.
