Playtech has developed a lot of slots that are based around a wide range of themes, and they don't always need some kind of super-fancy motif or backing from an existing media brand to make a solid title that will give players a fun gameplay experience. This is the case with their Desert Treasure video slot, a game that is based on looking for treasure in a sort of desert landscape. It's also worth noting that they didn't fall back on the Egyptian tropes in this game, which is good for the originality of the symbol set.

Game Layout

This online slot has a pretty safe and straightforward layout. There are five reels with three horizontal rows. You'll also have 20 adjustable paylines, but keeping the RTP at its maximum for the best chances of winning will require you to keep the number of paylines at 20 as well. You have the option to bet between one and 10 coins on each of those lines for a betting range of 20 to 200 coins per turn with all paylines activated. The coin sizes can be set to values ranging from $0.01 to $5 as well, so there's a pretty huge range of bet sizes available that starts at the $0.20 level per turn.

Wild Golden Cobra Symbol

You never know where you'll see a cobra when you're in the desert, but in this game, it's a good thing to come across this scary animal. The golden cobra symbol is the wild, and it shows up on every one of the five vertical reels. You can win with just two of a kind of this symbol on a payline for a 10x win. Prizes of 200x and 2,000x are yours for three of a kind and four of a kind, respectively, as well. The largest individual payout in the regular gameplay for this slot comes with five of the golden cobra wild on an activated payline. If you get that, then you'll be rewarded with a massive 10,000x top jackpot. We will note, however, that there is one other winning combination that matches this total prize, and we'll get to that next.

Scattered Woman Payouts

The woman symbol is the scatter in this game. They can line up anywhere on the game board, no matter if they're on a payline or on consecutive reels or not, to give you pays. Five of a kind awards 500 times your total bet, which is the same total payout as five of the wilds, meaning it ties for the largest prize in the game. Four of a kind will get you 50x, which is like a 1,000x line bet win. Likewise, three of a kind is worth a prize of 5x, and you can even win 2x for two of a kind of this symbol.

Free Spins Bonus Round

Three or more of the scattered woman gets you a shot at the free spins bonus round. You'll always be given 10 free spins no matter how many scatters you use to trigger this feature. However, every one of your payouts (other than the bonus game winnings, which we'll look at below) will be tripled with a 3x multiplier in this feature. You can re-trigger the feature as well.

Treasure Hunting Bonus Game

Three or more of the bonus symbol with the map and compass get you a treasure hunting stage play. You'll need at least three on consecutive reels from left to right, but they don't have to line up on a particular payline. This is essentially a left-to-right scatter symbol. You'll have chances to dig up big treasures and receive serious payouts as a result in this feature.

Other Payouts and Wins

The scene with the oasis surrounded by palm trees earns players 500x for five, and five of a kind of the camels will earn players 400x. Each of these symbols pay for two of a kind or more, and the rest require at least three. This includes the bandit symbol, which awards you 200x for five on an activated payline.

The card rank symbols are decorated with various creatures that you would see in the desert. This list includes 150x for five of the A and 125x for five of the K. The Q symbol earns 100x for five of a kind, and pays of 75x and 50x are given for five of the J or 10, respectively.

In Summary

Desert Treasure is a video slot that Playtech put together with a high level of volatility but without a progressive jackpot. It also has a $1 side bet with the Dollar Ball game, which functions like a pick-five lottery that does have its own progressive, but you don't have to enjoy it to play the game. Overall, this is a solid title with good features that make sense based on the theme of the title and some pretty strong jackpots as well.
