There are a few key changes to Queen of the Nile 2's predecessor's gameplay and we'll get the bad one out of the way first. Curiously, the jackpot has dropped to 3,000 coins, which is much lower than in the original Queen of the Nile.
The only good thing about this is that it means you can enjoy substantial regular wins more often than in games with larger jackpots, where the variance (and associated risk) is much higher. Cleopatra, the wild symbol, doubles any wins when substituting. Considering that some pretty decent wins are already possible during standard play, this is a great addition to the game.
For example, after just a few spins, we landed two Cleopatra symbols in the first two reels and almost doubled our starting bankroll as a result. The number of paylines has increased to 25, which doesn't make a huge difference, but might grab you a few extra wins.
The option to gamble your winnings is still here, and you can double or quadruple them by correctly guessing the colour or suit of a random card drawn from the deck.
