Queen of the Nile is set on a gritty background shaded with various hues of brown, with darker hints carving out hieroglyphics, with bits of teal and palm tree silhouettes. The reels are a shade of cream which generates plenty of contrast. Ancient Egyptian-themed pokies are incredibly popular and are loved by many players due to the rich (literally) heritage of the nation. This is what makes Queen of the Nile an appealing pokie, despite it not having the best graphics.
Queen of the Nile is one of the few Aristocrat pokies that feature a dramatic soundtrack; however, it features generic sounds that don’t do the overall aesthetic of the pokie any justice.

Queen of the Nile Trivia
The most famous Egyptian queen/empress was Cleopatra; however, there were plenty of Egyptian queens such as Twosret, Nefertiti, Sobekneferu, Neithikret, and more. Wives of pharaohs were never referred to as queens but rather Great Wife, God’s Wife, or Royal Consort.
Unlike many ancient cultures, Egyptians had a lot of respect for women; however, when it came to inheriting the throne, the son of any of the pharaoh’s wives would be preferred over the daughter. This would be the only time where there would be a clear preference for men to rule.
