Treasure Nile from Microgaming: Slot Review - a great progressive jackpot on offer with this slot

This GamingRevolution review tests Treasure Nile, one of the most well-known online games on the market. Its progressive jackpot coupled with simplicity makes for a unique experience.

The bright design helps to amplify what’s really important, the progressive jackpot. The current jackpot amount is displayed in red above the reel and ensures that players know exactly what’s at stake in Treasure Nile.

Special Features

How could my favourite feature not be the jackpot? Indeed, that is most likely the reason why Treasure Nile is called Treasure Nile, but also why so many players love playing this slot game. However, many software providers have created jackpot slots, which only experienced minor success and have long vanished from many online casinos. What makes Treasure Nile’s jackpot better than most conventional jackpots is first and foremost the fact that it is progressive. Furthermore, this progressive jackpot due to the game’s popularity and clever engineering reaches high amounts frequently.

Aside from this feature, Treasure Nile provides next to none extras. Neither free spins nor multipliers form part of the slot machine. Therefore, Treasure Nile can be considered a pretty unique slot. It combines simplicity with a progressive jackpot, and what’s more, in this form it is available on mobile and on the tablet. That’s a rarity.

Theme and Graphics

As a first-time player of the video slot game Treasure Nile by Microgaming, I was surprised that the design of the slot machines is somewhat dated. This, however, sounds almost negative, which it isn’t meant to be. The surprise came due to the fact that we have gotten so used to slot machines with animations that rival the likes of Pixar. The slot machine Treasure Nile is tastefully designed but doesn’t quite match the heights of the beauty of the pyramids. Nevertheless, from a graphic design perspective, the team at Microgaming made all the right choices. The purple background works well with the reels and rows, which display somewhat one-dimensional, yet bright, symbols that follow an Egyptian theme.

Most importantly, the bright design helps to amplify what’s really important, the progressive jackpot. The current jackpot amount is displayed in red above the reel and ensures that players know exactly what’s at stake in Treasure Nile.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

Here’s some news: There is no need to use any features. In Treasure Nile the coin size is set at 4.50. Some players like this. It removes the idea that smaller bets, which in most slot machines do not qualify players for the jackpot, cannot be profitable too. That's only fair; progressive jackpot machines are mainly designed in such a fashion that the jackpot is the primary win, and all other winnings are minuscule. Some players, however, will not like that much paternalism. This is understandable, as applying strategy to your gameplay – whether it works or not – excites many players. Bearing all this in mind – the cost per spin and the odds of winning – I would encourage a gamble on Treasure Nile so long that you can afford to lose the amount you are betting with.

Our Verdict on Treasure Nile

Ha, I do like the slot. It’s different. The treasure in this slot machine is, however, not much of a mystery to be discovered. Instead, there is only one – very obvious – prize. That’s the progressive jackpot. The thrill of playing this game is certainly high, given what’s at stake. Throughout the history of this game, many players have won life-changing sums and the thought that this could be you excites.
