Treasure Nile is just one of the many progressive pokies you will find on Jackpot City and other top Microgaming casinos. Released in 2008, this pokie comes with a life changing jackpot, but it offers very little else for pokie fans.
Unsurprisingly considering its name, Treasure Nile adopts an Ancient Egyptian theme, with artefacts, art and more reminiscent of that era. The graphics are a little simple, far from the beautiful visuals you will find on modern pokies, but it does have a good few years on those games.
There are only 9 paylines on Treasure Nile, and you can bet between 1 and 5 coins on each of them, with these coins costing as little as $0.50 each. Whilst this is well within the reach of many gamblers, it will be beyond what some are prepared to pay. This is often the case with lucrative progressive pokies, but Treasure Nile rarely offers more than $100,000 and is far from the biggest we have seen.
There are scatter symbols on Treasure Nile, but these do not trigger any free spins or bonus rounds, and merely pay out an instant win. This is a nice addition, but nothing notable.
Make no mistake about it, Treasure Nile is all about the progressive jackpot. The issue with this is that it isn’t the best jackpot around, and it seems to be very difficult to unlock. We don’t know how common it is, as that sort of information isn’t available, but as it can only be triggered when you land 5 of the highest paying symbols on the 9th payline, it doesn’t seem to be too common.
This is a very specific jackpot trigger, and this pokie doesn’t have much else going for it either. Still, you will find some high variance here, which is perhaps why it remains so popular.
