King of the Nile is one of the greatest poker machines created by Aristocrat Gaming and it features an Egyptian theme. The game is actually part of a so-called series, along with the very popular Queen of the Nile and Love on the Nile. In this game, the main character is the Egyptian King, who acts as the main symbol on the reels, thus bringing the highest payouts for players. This pokie machine is played on five reels and 20 paylines and it comes with special symbols and features, all of which contribute to keeping the player entertained while going for big prizes.
The Pharaoh symbol is used in this game as the wild symbol, which means that it can replace any regular symbol on the reels to help complete winning combinations. The wild symbol cannot be used as a substitute for the scatter symbol, which is represented by the Pyramid icon.
The Pyramid symbol is a scatter, which means that it can appear in any positions on the reels to trigger the special feature, as long as at least three scatter symbols appear simultaneously.
There are eight bonus features in this pokie game and they are linked together. When 3 or other than 3 Pyramid symbols are scattered in any position on the reels, the bonus round is triggered. For the bonus round, the player is awarded free spins, which depend on the number of scatter symbols used to trigger the feature – 15 free spins for 3 symbols, 20 free spins for 4 symbols and 25 free spins for 5 symbols. When the free spins feature ends, the player is presented three options: take the winnings, be rewarded with a bonus prize, or play the free spins again.
