Queen of the Nile 2 Pokies Review

No prizes for guessing which game this is the sequel of. You guessed it – Queen of the Nile. The second game in the series reprises the Egyptian theme but also makes a few important changes to its tried and tested gameplay.

Below we take a closer look at these changes to see whether Queen of the Nile 2 can depose the original, which is one of the most popular slots in Australia and across the world, from its throne.


If you've read our review of Queen of the Nile, you already know what to expect here. Queen of the Nile 2, like the original, has an Egyptian theme and stars Queen Cleopatra.

Most of the same reel icons – burial masks, pyramids, hieroglyphics etc. – are back, and the queen herself remains the wild icon. It's a shame that the graphics haven't been given a proper overhaul, as the game doesn't exactly look its freshest anymore.


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.

Added Value

In the original game, players get the (now) bog standard 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier when they trigger a bonus round. Queen of the Nile 2 instead allows players to choose from four different bonus features, offering anywhere between 5 and 20 free spins with multipliers ranging from 2x to 10x.

After beavering away to trigger a bonus round, it's great to be given this element of choice. Players who love a high risk experience will probably choose 5 games with a 10x multiplier, which remains a potentially very lucrative session even by today's standards, while those who prefer to take things slow and steady will probably take 20 spins with a 2x multiplier.

The jackpot may be lower, but there's plenty to recommend Queen of the Nile II over its original. We suggest giving both a try, as it will often come down to being a matter of taste.


You would think that one of the first things the creators of Queen of the Nile would address in its sequel is the original game's relatively low jackpot. Unfortunately, you'd be dead wrong. Aristocrat have actually LOWERED the maximum jackpot to 3,000 coins in this game. There are more paylines than the original and an element of choice in the bonus round, with up to 20 free spins and a multiplier of up to 10x available, but some players will just find it too difficult to get past the fact that this jackpot is seriously low compared to so many games out there.
