Desert Treasure

Playtech’s Desert Treasure video slot is the first of two games in this franchise. Just like its sequel, this desert themed title is also a progressive jackpot slot. It is one of Playtech’s earlier progressives, containing the Dollar Ball feature. Desert Treasure conforms to the video slot standard, in that there are 20 paylines dispersed over 5 reels. Graphically, Desert Treasure hasn’t aged terribly well, although that hasn’t stopped it from being one of South Africa’s most loved and commonly played online slot machine games.

Players are in full control of their bets in Desert Treasure, having the ability to choose their coin sizes, the amount of coins they wish to stake per line, and the number of lines they wish to play with. Desert Treasure’s coin denominations start out at just 0.01, but you can increase them to be worth up to 5.00 per coin. As many as 10 coins can be wagered per active payline in this video slot, which will see players able to bet anything from the base minimum of 0.01 per line, per spin, up to no more than 1,000.00 per spin.

Special Features

In Desert Treasure, the Egyptian Cobra acts as a wild icon. When you’re not gunning for the progressive jackpot in this slot, you can win as much as 10,000 coins by lining up 5 wilds on any active line. Wilds count as substitute symbols for all icons, barring the scatter and bonus symbols, and they can appear on all of the reels of the game.

The scatter icon in this slot is the girl symbol. When she appears 2, 3, 4 or 5 times anywhere on the reels, the player will pocket wins of 2x, 5x, 50x or 500x their total bet. Scatter icons will also offer the player a free spins bonus of 10 free games, when 3 or more appear in any positions on the reels. During that free spins bonus, you can also bag more free spins by landing additional scatter symbols.

A compass and map icon make up the bonus symbol in Desert Treasure. If you are fortunate enough to land 3 to 5 such symbols on an active payline (not anywhere on the reels), then you will land a bonus round. In the bonus game, players will be taken to a map where they can select from various treasure boxes in order to win instant cash prizes.

Winning the Progressive Jackpot

Playtech’s Desert Treasure is a Dollar Ball progressive jackpot slot, as we have mentioned earlier. This means that you cannot win the progressive in the actual slot itself. Instead it operates as a side-bet. At the top right hand corner of the screen, players can turn the Dollar Ball progressive on or off. Enabling it will see a player pay a small side-bet. The resulting progressive game is rather like a lottery. If you match your winning numbers with those on the scrollbar, you will win the progressive. Matching fewer numbers will hand you a smaller jackpot win.
