A While on the Nile Slot Reviews by Players


Write a review
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.
The ancient Egyptian theme is certainly one that belongs to the most popular themes among the developers of online video slots. Throne of Egypt, Egyptian Heroes, Treasure Nile and Egyptian Riches for instance are all slots that focus on that theme. There are of course much more that I can’t think of right now.

The slot in questing during this review here is the game A While On The Nile thought. This game has been produced by NextGen Gaming and offers 50-paylines, 5-reels and 4-rows. The minimum bet on this game is 50 cents.

That’s also the betsize I used when I played this game a very long time ago. What got me into playing it was the fact that A While On The Nile has stacked wild symbols (Pharaoh). These only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 however. During the base game I did find them to appear very often and helping me win between 15-30x bet quite often to keep my balance steady for a while.

Furthermore, this game has two main features to look forward to. One of them is some sort of Pick Bonus which can get triggered if you get the scarab scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. It makes you pick symbols until it says collect, then the bonus game ends. Had big expectations from it but unfortunately I didn’t win more than 10 euros (20x bet).

Then we also have the free spins feature. This one can get triggered by getting the Jewels Scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4. You then only get 5 free spins, which was kind of disappointing in my opinion. I like the free spins to last as long as possible and that certainly wasn’t the case here.

Random symbols can be turned wild though during the free spins, so the chance on a successful round is bigger. Despite this I didn’t win more than 13 euros I believe (26x bet). That’s when I decided to switch this game for another one.

Didn’t want to push my luck and I was already at loss since base game wins never went further than 30x betsize. One feature I forgot to mention is the Superbet functionality. With an increased betsize you can get a wild multiplier all the way up to 10x. I didn’t make use of it since it’s too expensive for me.

Overall A While On The Nile hasn’t been good to me and I probably will prefer other slots over this one.
Free spins feature isn't all that. Would have liked to see at least 10 or 15 free spins being awarded instead of 5. Remember NextGen Gaming, playtime is very important for players!

A While on the Nile slot game is one of the latest released one by NextGen and all I can say is I love it. It has an Egyptian theme and though I don’t think it would have amazing graphics quality but it still has impressive look. I like its colours which are properly used and power up the overall visual effects and also like the symbols it uses which are nice, charming and pleasure to play with. Of course they are the most commonly applied Scarabs, Pharaoh, Eye of Ra, hieroglyphs, Cleopatra characters but they have well-designed looks. The little motives and decorations on the columns and the whole background image with floating ships make the screen even more complete so I think there’s nothing here that players could complain for.

The game segment has some unique features but I appreciate some of them that give us some options to win more. The first I have to mention the game uses 4 rows instead of the 3 but the 50-paylines give the slot the chance to be profitable. The slot’s most distinctive attribute is the Super Bet feature which means that a win with Wild is multiplied by x 2, x 4, x 6, x 8 or even x 0. Naturally, the higher multiplier number means higher stake but it’s not proportional as for example calculating with an €1 total stake, getting x 6 multiplier Super Bet require only €5 and x 10 needs €7 bet. On the other hand I noticed using this feature if I play higher multiplier value and higher stake the Wilds are getting disappear so sometimes it’s not worth to use it even if the Pharaoh wild appears in stacked formula on the three inner reels.

I suppose because of this feature and the potential much higher wins the best paying 5 of a kind win pays just 1000 coins which is not so generous especially if a player doesn’t want to use the extra feature. Jewel is the Scatter of the game and pops up on the middle reels and if all three reels contain one of them 5 free spins are awarded while randomly picked symbols may turn into Wilds and even a whole reels can be transformed into substitutes symbols that could cause a nice win. My personal favourite among the features is the Scarab bonus game. This figure appears only on the first, third and fifth reels and if it happens at the same time the bonus starts when the all of the position of the reels becomes Scarab emblem and the player has to choose from them until the Collected labeled one is selected. They give instant cash prizes and using €1 total bet most of the times the won amount is never less than x 25-x 35 times of total bet and fortunately this extra is frequently occurs.

I think this slot is a fine example of a modern slot with lot of winning options what we’re all like and if it wouldn’t be enough what it provides at normal game session the slot also offers a great colours/suits type gamble feature which I frequently like to use because in my opinion the NextGen’s secondary gambling game is one of the best on the market. All in all, it’s a very good overall product with no real major shortcomings (but the top line win prize would be a little higher) and I easily can recommend this game for a try and I believe some of you will like it enough to play with it often when you visit a NextGen casino.

Just for the record, incidentally when I was less than 15 years old I read in one of the technical magazines (so many in those days) that the initial “lights organ” and the “rotating globe with mirrors” (both so popular in the discos from 30 years ago) were actually invented about 100 years ago by Egyptians to accompany the steps of the tourists on the way to the famous pyramids of Giza, with light games in the rhythm of the specific Arabic music. If you are fortunate to get to play at this slot (“A While on the Nile”) the Free Spins round, where the lights from an organ and a mirror globe in the background change the slot symbols into Wilds you will see the truth of what was said above.

To start with the beginning, the slot “A while on the Nile” from NextGen casinos is a slot weak in almost all aspects. I say this because both its theme and graphics are more than mediocre. Nothing would be attractive at this slot, if it would not had a unique feature that I never met before. The slot is designed so that the wins offered normally by aligning several symbols do not matter at all. But on the other hand, by activating a “super bet” you can have a Wild symbol when it enters a winning combination to offer also a multiplier of up to 10 x.And because the Wild symbols are Stacked just imagine how is like to have on reels 2 and 3, two columns of Wilds, each Wild multiplying by 10 x!. This is something super that will bring big wins of 10-50 Euros from a single spin (compared with only 2 cents won normally for 3 aligned symbols). It is true, by enabling the super-bet, the minimum amount payable for a spin is 3.5 Euro and easily you can lose up to 100 Euro before you have one of these wins of 50 Euro. But the slot is magnificent because of this! This is because from just two spins, after you have lost tens of Euros, you can gather even something extra to the initial amount of money.

And like if this was not enough, if you are lucky to enter the 5 Free Spins something extra is waiting for you. At every spin entire columns of symbols are transformed into Wilds (by the lights in the background of the slot) and from each of these 5 Free Spins you will win as much as 50-70 Euros! That is more like it! In addition to the Free Spins, the game brings also a Bonus game when the screen fills with “Scarabs” and you choose Scarabs (each for a payout) until “Collect” (However the payout of this Bonus Game is just symbolic).

The game is good only for these exorbitant winnings and you must have a special taste for risk and full pockets to play here.

A While on the Nile video slot it is another one new one in portfolio of nextgen software, this game themed with ancient Egypt and looks great, so i am glad to make this review!

A While on the Nile slot has 50 paylines and great thing here that this game has stacked wilds on reels 2 3 4, and also like at many other nextgen games here we can activate superbet feature, pay some more money but have wild multiplier up to x 10, i am rare use it since i am almost never have enough money to bet with superbet.

Also this game has two different features, first one is bonus game, it is triggered when bonus scarab appears on reels 1 3 5 and then player awarded with usual pick bonus game, my best result on this game is 50 x total bet, and this is not so bet, right? Much more better than most netent bonus games! also we can trigger free spins if 3 scatters will land on reels 2 3 4. In free spins we have no any multiplier, but more wilds can appear at random. My biggest win after this feature was somewhere around x 150 total bet. This is great and interesting game which will not make you sad, but i did not like that payouts here is a bit low, best 5 of a kind pays only 40 x total bet, and this is not very nice at all, i think it can be at least 100 x total bet, and then it will be much more interesting to play this slot.

Very nice looking medium variance game but unfortunately with low payouts. Everything seems fine and cool, and i will play this game again and many times, because i am addicted to stacked wilds in online slots. Once again, great game from nextgen, just try it yourself at any online casino and most likely you will be happy with it.
