Quote:masterflame98Has anyone heard of a Magic of the Nile slot machine? We have three banks of this machine, for a total of 18 units, here at the new Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. It looks like a variable State machine where there are three obelisks on the screen that fill up when a certain symbol is shown on the reel. Once an Obelisk fills up it will engage a bonus game. Each Obelisk is a different bonus game. One is Random wilds the other has Expanding reels and the third one is a Multiplier Wilds. It seems like you could take advantage of this if we come across the machine with one or more of the obelisks almost full. I am curious to whether there's some math that can be done to figure out what kind of edge you would have based on the condition of the obelisks. Thank-you.

Welcome! If it is like Golden Egypt the answer is yes, and yes. Sadly, I can't do the math, but maybe if the Wizard sees this he can...

We have three banks of this machine, for a total of 15 units, here at the new Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. It looks like a variable State machine where there are three obelisks on the screen that fill up when a colored scarab symbol is shown on the reel. Once an Obelisk fills up it will engage a free bonus spin, which will have a larger payout.

Each Obelisk is a different bonus spin upgrade. One is Random Wilds the other has Expanding Reels and the third one is a Multiplier Wilds. It is also possible to fill up 2 of the Obelisks at once, and you get a double-upgraded bonus spin.

anyway, the obvious one is all 3 columns fill up to 2 before you play it.

maybe 2 of the columns to 2 and 1 column to 1?

At minimum 2 at 2 seems to be a good entry point

However be aware that this is only a moderately good play. There is definitely a good bit of volatility.

I thought i had this one all to myself. LOL!
