Ruby of the Nile Review
From the first glance, the slot hardly impresses. It looks like one of hundreds games devoted to an Egyptian theme. Its visuals are pleasant to the eye, with rich and intensive colors and mosaic-shaped symbol backgrounds but its radical difference from all the other video slots lies in its bonus symbols. Virtually every five-reel slot has a wild and a scatter, one of each kind, while a large portion of the images consists of basic symbols that the player needs to match on a payline in order to win. This is not the case with Ruby of the Nile which has two wild symbols, four scatters and one free spin trigger. Basic symbols include only playing card values from Nine to Ace, which is fairly unusual for 5-reel slots.
Wagering options include the number of paylines (1 to 20), the number of coins per line (1 to 5) and a coin size ($0.01 to $0.50), therefore the minimum and maximum stakes are $0.20 and $50 with all lines activated. Payoffs for special pics are reviewed below. As for basic symbols, the top three prizes they can produce are $187.50 (five Aces), $150 (five Kings) and $125 (five Queens).
The slot has the Double Wild and Triple Wild symbols. Their names clearly reflect what they do: both wilds substitute and carry a respective multiplier of x2 or x3. If both wilds (Double and Triple) land on a payline, the multipliers are not combined as they do in some other slots. Instead, a winning amount is multiplied only once by the highest multiplier. The wilds can replace all symbols (even scatters), save for the one that activates free spins.
Four different scatters bring you profit if three or more of the same appear in any position. The four scatters are the Logo, Goddess Isis, Golden Amulet and Anubis. The top payout for five scatters varies between x75 and x100 or $5000 at the maximum bet on a spin.
Finally, you get free spins that are unlocked by the Golden Tomb that lands on the middle position of reel 5; this is the only place on the screen that qualifies for that symbol. 20 retriggerable free spins are awarded with all wins doubled until the end of the feature.
