Has anyone heard of a Magic of the Nile slot machine? 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. 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...

it would help if you added an image:



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?

Since the ďcatís already out of the bagĒ

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.

The hustlers figured this one out the day it was released, because it's very similar to another title. I've seen hustlers successful at chasing with even 1 bar at 2. Personally, I have to have 2 at 2 due to the volatility.

It looked exploitable the moment I saw it. I appreciate the confirmations, which was the goal of this post. With my eyes open now, I have noticed other titles with similar bonus "meters" that can be preyed upon. Another tool in my bag of advantage plays, when the tables are too busy.
