Wins Worthy of Cleopatra in New Game Feather of the Nile Slot
Egypt; a mysterious land filled with raven-haired babes, untold treasures, and unfathomable buildings reaching up to the heavens from a granulated desert. Ah, what secrets do these ancient lands hold? Let’s explore them together as we take a journey with High 5’s latest offering, Feather of the Nile slot.
A feast for the eyes, but will it swell the pockets?
What a beautifully designed game! Wow! We have some ancient Egyptian buildings in the background, with the 5×3 grid nestled between two obelisks. The reels are unencumbered by gridlines so the symbols seem to float in the air. Above the reels are 3 multiplier icons.
A pants-tightening Egyptian beauty stares at us from the bottom left of the screen, while a golden box that houses the Scatter feather is on the right.
Features that’ll increase your chances at Free Spins and Big Wins!
The first of the features start like this. Collect 3 or more Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels during the base game and you’ll be into the Free Spins.
- 3 Bonus symbols = 7 Free Spins
- 4 Bonus symbols = 12 Free Spins
- 5 Bonus Symbols = 20 Free Spins
During the base game, each Scatter feather is collected and applied to the next Free Spins bonus round. These feathers only appear on reel 5.
Coming back to the multiplier meter we spoke about initially, each of the 3 multipliers corresponds to two symbols as we can see in the pic above. These differ depending on whether you’re in the base or bonus games.
Multipliers during the base game
Here, all 3 multiplier meters start with a value of 1x. Line wins with the round red, orange, or green symbols contribute points that are equal to the number of winning symbols on that line. And that increases the value of the corresponding multiplier meter. For every 33 points gained, the respective multiplier meter will increase by 1x.
After all of the points have been added to the meters, all of the wins with the other two symbols (the square-shaped ones and the ones framed in gold) get multiplied by the value of their corresponding meter.
Then, all wins with the Jackpot symbol are multiplied by the sum of their values of the 3 multiplier meters.
Multipliers during the bonus round
When you get into the Free Spins feature, all of the multipliers are set to a value of 2x. Then for each Scatter feather collected during the base game, a random multiplier meter gets increased by 1x. After the first Free Spin session, each multiplier also has the chance to increase by 1x.
All wins with the symbols that are in the pic above are multiplied by the value of the corresponding multiple meters. Also, all wins with a Jackpot symbol are multiplied by the sum of the value of the 3 multipliers.
Have we got a winner?
Alrighty, let’s sum this puppy up then. We’ve got a stunning-looking game with a decent RTP. Its medium volatility means a little less chance at the top prize (which is pretty darn good) but at least you’ll also experience some lesser wins to keep you engaged.
The Free Spins and Multiplier features are cool, too. There’s not much you can fault it for, so Feather of the Nile slot gets a thumbs up from us. If you’re after a bigger top prize and a high volatility, then try your hand at Book of Nile: Hold ‘n’ Link slot.
