Hot on the heels of the release of Stampede Slots, BetSoft has released Legend of the Nile Slots; the developer’s use of HTML5 to build this slot gives it a polished look and makes it mobile friendly upon its release. Legend of the Nile is a 6-reel cascading slot title that uses cluster pays instead of paylines. BetSoft has made fine use of cascading tiles and cluster pays making Legend of the Nile a must play slot this season.
If any developer can take a tired, old and overused theme, its BetSoft; while some may groan over tet another Egyptian-themed slot two things that BetSoft does well, regardless of the theme. Bettors will see ankh, scarab, Eye of the Horus, pharaoh, birds, plants and water symbols on the reels. The Anubis, Isis and Ra icons trigger the title’s bonus content and the pyramid wild can replace any other symbol except any symbol that triggers a bonus feature.
Cluster pay games sometimes confuse online players that are more familiar with a payline system but BetSoft has a unique solution to the problem. The title is wagered as a fixed 30-payline; all 30 paylines must be wagered and bettors can choose to play up to five coins for each of the paylines. Coin sizes vary from $0.01 to $5; making $0.30 the minimum wager and $150 the max bet. This simplifies the process without compromising the wide variety of bet sizes that draw players of any size bankroll.
The Anubis, Isis and Ra symbols all trigger bonus games and features; while Anubis and Isis just trigger general bonus content, Ra can trigger that and can also award the progressive jackpot. The Anubis and Isis meters fill as the two symbols appear in conjunction with a winning combination and any progress obtained can be retained, even from one playing session to another. The Isis bonus awards free spins and up to 75,000 coins and the Anubis bonus has the potential to award up to 100,000 coins and free spins. Unlike the Anubis and Isis bonus meters, the Ra meter resets at the end of each spin of the reels; a cascading slot makes it possible for a bettor to find 20 or more Ra symbols in only one wager. The Ra meter can award up to 20X the bet, eight symbols nets eight free games, the ninth adds two more spins, the twelfth Ra gives an additional two spins and the fifteenth adds three more for a total of 15 free games. Players who manage to see the meter reach 17 Ra symbols will be awarded with 400X the original full bet and 20 or more symbols in the meter give the player the progressive jackpot.
Any game by BetSoft is worth a look and while this slot title may have the most used theme of all time, BetSoft takes something old and makes it new. There are multiple ways for players to see a large payday this slot and the progressive jackpot being triggered instead of randomly awarded is an idea that most no longer use. The Legend of the Nile is well-designed and fun to play; BetSoft has done it yet again.
