Take a trip down Africa's most famous river in A While On The Nile a 5 reel, 50-payline slot created by NextGen Gaming. This ancient Egyptian-themed title comes with plenty of extras including free spins, a pick me bonus feature and the Superbet feature which allows you to boost wins with a 10x multiplier. Play from between 50p and £20 per spin.

The first thing you'll notice about A While On The Nile are the visuals - the images are cartoon style and include symbols of the Cleopatra, the Eye of Horus, Pharaoh's staff and a stone tablet featuring hieroglyphics. There are also Egyptian styled playing card symbols from ace down to jack. The Pharaoh is the wild, substituting for all other symbols apart from the scatter.

The action is played out against a view of the Nile, complete with ancient sailing barges and palm trees on the river bank. The graphics are excellent, lovely and sharp against a clear, light backdrop. The action is played out to a thumping Arabic style soundtrack. No complaints then about the looks and sounds on show here. What about the features?

One quick way to give your winning chances a boost is via the Superbet feature. Here you can opt to pay extra on each spin and in turn receive a multiplier of 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x or 10x whenever the Pharaoh wild is part of a winning payline. While the multipliers are very enticing the extra bet can be expensive if you opt for the higher levels. Make sure you have the bankroll to cope with the wins here. For example, if you want the 10x multiplier you'll pay for the standard 50 lines plus the 300x your line bet. Use the free play mode to try things out first.

A While On The Nile also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered when 3 jewel symbols appear on the reels. You'll be awarded 5 free spins complete with added wild symbols and stacked wilds. The Superbet also applies during the free spins if you've opted to pay the extra in the base game. More free games can be re-triggered too.

3 scarab symbols will trigger the Scarab Bonus feature - it's a classic pick me round where you will be awarded a cash bonus after choosing a symbol. If you're feeling lucky there's also a gamble feature where you can double or quadruple your win by correctly identifying the colour and suit of a playing card.

The overall variance is in the medium range but opt for the Superbet feature and it becomes sky high. Expensive it may be but it can deliver massive rewards. The slick visuals, quality sound and array of features make A While On The Nile a tempting proposition.

If you've got the bankroll (and nerve) to battle with the Superbet feature this river cruise is one well worth taking. The SuperBet feature can also be found in other NextGen Gaming titles such as Judge Dredd. If you like Ancient-Egyptian themed slots, there’s no shortage online with Pharaoh’s Fortune by IGT or Book of Ra Deluxe by Novomatic being the most popular.
