A 5×4 reels and 50 payline video slot, this Pharaoh lures you in with his great big smile, but before long you may find yourself wandering the dessert alone… until you find a city of gold.
A While on the Nile mobile slot can only really be described as one thing: dangerous. With 50 paylines and stacked wilds that show up on reels 2, 3 and 4 often, you’d think it be a pretty easy slot game to play, with wins on every spin. You’d be right. But that’s not what’s dangerous about it.
NextGen Gaming have added their Superbet Option with a high variance, which can render newbies to the game broke very quickly. But first things first…
We’re not huge fans of the theme. A While on the Nile slot game has all the Egyptian symbols you’d expect, from scarabs to Pharaohs and hieroglyphs, it’s nothing not seen before. But it’s not half as pretty as Crown of Egypt or half as well drawn as Microgaming’s Isis.
NextGen have tried to thrown in a modern twist to a classic theme which makes the whole thing more tacky and cheesy rather than light and fun. However, we are not experts in slot design and it may be that you like the disco ball twist during the free spins. Even if you don’t, there’s plenty of reasons to keep playing.
This mobile slot machine will eat your budget in a matter of seconds if you’re not careful. The reason is simple; you have to use the Superbet option to get the most out of A While on the Nile mobile slot. This allows you to set the wild multiplier from x0 (not recommended) to x2, x4, x6, x8, or a huge x10 multiplier (highly recommend). If you choose the last option, the minimum bet you can play on this slot is 3.50 in cash. So bear this in mind, as the bigger the multiplier, the bigger your minimum bet.
Without this multiplier, your wins on this slot game are zilch. You might as well throw your money away if you’re not using this feature. Better yet, find another slot. The Superbet option is the only way you’ll get any decent win on a slot machine that gives out wilds like beetle juice candy. Even with that, many of the wins will be without much impact unless you get a 4 or 5 of a kind.
It’s during the free spin games and click me feature where this game soars. We’ve had wins of 100x our bet on the latter and with the free spins you generally walk away with a minimum of 30 times your bet, many times more. But you’ll have to very carefully budget for that big win and not cry too much if you end up with a mouth full of sand by the end of the game.
For its light hearted and cheesy look, this machine is not for the faint of heart (much like the Book of Dead slot), but Indiana Jones adventurer willing to risk it all.

Wilds: The Pharaoh is the wild symbol, appearing stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It substitutes all other symbols except the bonus symbols.
Scarab Bonus Feature: Get three scarabs on the screen and you'll trigger a click me feature which will let you keep clicking until you hit collect. Harder hitting than it looks, but very hard to find.
Scatters & Free Spins: When three jewels appears you'll get what may seem like a measly 5 free spins. Yet this feature hits hard enough and comes often enough that you won't mind.
This is mostly because the disco ball on top (yes, disco ball. No we didn't get it either) grants random extra wilds across the screen, giving you the chance for some nice wins. The multiplier on the wild sticks to whatever you set on the superbet.
Superbet: Here's where this mobile game gets interesting. You can set by how much the wild will increase your win when he is used on a winning payline. You have to play all 50 lines to activate it, and by increasing your multiplier you increase your bet, so make sure you pick the multiplier that suits your budget.
The multipliers in question are x2, x4, x6, x8 and x10.
We like to go all the way up to 10, but we do love high risk, high thrill games. More conservative players who want to balance their budget may want to try the x4 or x6 multiplier.
A While on the Nile video slot machine isn't perfect. The theme is not the greatest and newcomers may find their budget disappearing like a mirage in the dessert.
And yet, with a little bit of luck and the right choice of multiplier, you could be in for some crazy wins as the stacked wilds and extra wilds fill your screen with Egyptian gold.
