King of the Nile Pokie Game
King of the Nile was launched by Aristocrat in 2002 and almost certainly looked to build upon the success of Queen of the Nile, Aristocrat’s flagship title. This hugely popular pokie game can operate over a maximum of twenty win lines and offers adjustable coin bets. It was one of the first mainstream pokies to introduce a gamble feature, where any prize can be doubled in a 50/50 game of chance. Such features are now commonplace in both land based and online pokies and serve to once again illustrate the innovation that Aristocrat has always brought to the world of gambling.
The free spins feature is also somewhat different to what many players may be used to. As soon as the free spins have finished, players are presented with three options. Firstly, they can simply collect their prize, just as they do on any other pokie. Alternatively, they can claim a mystery prize which may be more or less than they accrued during the free spins. If the player takes the chance, then they risk their entire winnings to this point. Finally, if the player is not happy with the result, they get a single opportunity to play out their free spins all over again. The original prize is once again forfeited and the player must accept whatever they win on the second chance.
The bad news for fans of the pokie is that King of the Nile is not available in any online casino yet. However, Aristocrat is constantly devoting more and more resources to converting their games for online use and we feel that King of the Nile is bound to be near the top of their list of priorities. Eventually, it looks likely that the majority of the Aristocrat back catalogue will become available through online casinos, and the only real question that remains is how they go about implementing them. There is no current indication as to whether Aristocrat will licence its titles to existing manufacturers who are looking to expand into the Australian market, or even set up their own proprietary casino software.
As things currently stand, fans of King of the Nile are encouraged to try out both Avalon pokie and the Hellboy pokie machines. Both come from Microgaming and offer a superb gaming experience, including the familiar twenty pay line structure. The Avalon pokie also offers a bonus game which is among the most enjoyable of any pokie at All Slots or Royal Vegas Online Casino.
