Desert Treasure Slot

Play for real money

Desert Treasure is a desert-themed 20-payline video slot running on the Playtech software platform. Apart from the game’s sandy scenery and oasis imagery, its most important symbols are the wild card in the form of a Golden Cobra, a Princess, which is the scatter and a Bonus Map and Compass symbol. Players are welcome to try the slot on this page for free or choose any of the featured Playtech casinos to play the game for real money.

To explore the desert riches, players need to decide on their bet. Clicking on +/- in the lower right corner adjusts the coin size, ranging from 0.01 to 5. Each click on the “Bet per Line” button adds a coin to the line bet. To add a payline, players should push “Select Lines”. “Spin” starts the game and "Bet Max" wagers the maximum sum, immediately initiating the spinning of the reels. To play multiple times consecutively, players can click the wrench button in the upper right corner and then “Au­top­lay­”.

If 3 or more scatters appear on the reels, players are awarded with 10 Free Spins. All wins are tripled during Free Spins, bar from the bonus. More Free Spins can be re-triggered during the Free Spins.

When 3 or more Map and Compass symbols appear on an active payline, players are offered to pick an item to win an instant prize. Each prize has a different payout.

Additionally, there is a lotto-type sidegame called Dollar Ball wherein players choose 5 numbers out of 49. 5 numbers will be drawn at random and the more numbers match the player’s choice, the more they win. If all 5 numbers match, players win the Jackpot.

(Re-post) Desert Treasure is the original version 20-liner slot game from Playtech, before Desert Treasure 2 came along a few years later. My biggest ever single win on any slot game came from playing Desert Treasure, and is probably my third biggest total win contributor to this day! We'll come to this as we go along.

Desert Treasure offers the usual free spins game and a bonus game. The smiling golden Cobra is the Wild symbol, don't know if cobras can actually smile, but who cares, substituting all symbols except for the scatter and bonus symbols. An exotic, or erotic if you like, smiling winking Arabian gal is the scatter symbol. Maybe I should wink back at her too, who knows, she may give me many more wins, hehehe. The bonus symbol is a compass. Both the scatter and the Wild symbols carry a win value, with 5 Wilds paying the highest win possible, at 10,000x the line bet, whilst 5 scatters pay 500x the total bet. However, those bonus symbols do not carry any win value but award cash wins in the bonus feature game when triggered. 3 or more consecutive bonus symbols on any payline triggers this bonus feature game, whereby you get to choose 3, 4 or 5 treasure chests to get cash wins. 3 or more scatter symbols (the lovely Arabian gal), triggers the free spins feature game, whereby 10 free spins with a 3x win multiplier are awarded. More free spins can be retriggered with 3 or more scatters appearing anywhere on the reels and can be retriggered infinitely! Well, that's what Playtech says, but in truth, free spins cannot be infinitely retriggered of course! The most I ever got was only around 50 more free spins. How many more can anyone get, I wouldn't know! The Bonus feature game can also be triggered during any free spins game.

Big wins of 5 scatters and 5 Wilds are possible both in the base game and in the free spins game as well. Getting these in the free spins game would pay the highest wins possible due to the 3x win multiplier! And this was how I got my biggest ever single win of all time! I was playing Desert Treasure with my usual bets of between $0.20 to $1. The reels were paying quite well and the feature games were coming quite frequently. Like they say, when the reels are paying, play with bigger bets! And this was exactly what I did. From $0.20 bets per spin, I gradually increased it to $1, then to $2 bets per spin. The wins were still coming regularly and my balance shot up to over $1000! Not wanting to cash out yet, for one reason or another, I don't really know why, just by instinct I guess, I continued on playing but at bigger bets, until I had about $1600 in my balance, playing at $8 bets per spin! Even with such a big win already in hand, I still didn't want to stop and cash out! Inside my head a voice was saying "play on, play on"

But, nothing good lasts forever, and the spins started eating away my credits. From $1600 it went down to $1000, and down again to $500. I was getting really upset with myself for not cashing out when I should. As a final attempt at 'win or lose it all', I doubled up and played at $16 bets per spin, and waited for that free spins feature game to come on. It finally did, with less than $200 left to spare! I sighed with relief! The first few spins didn't pay much though, until the last few remaining spins, when 5 Wilds came together on a payline! At $16 bet per spin ($0.80 per line), and with that 3x win multiplier, those 5 Wilds paid out a whopping $24,000++!!! WOW! That was the biggest single win I had ever won in my entire gambling lifetime, all thanks to the 3 erotic, exotic, lovely winking Arabian gals and those incredibly smiling 5 golden cobras! Maybe those cobras were only smiling at me? Who knows, hahaha.

Desert Treasure is an older 20 payline 5 reel slot coming from Playtech. I can’t say that this game has anything special to offer when it comes to the overall graphic, symbols and music. Visually it looks like a very old slot and it reminds me more like some Microrgaming oldie than a Playtech slot.

Even when the reels spin it reminds me of Avalon, so one grade down due to the design of the game. I have to add it becomes very boring to play after a while. The paytable is good. The max combination of 5 wild Cobras pays 10 000 x bet and 5 scatters pay a high 500 x bet. Off course that’s what we all want to see on our screens one day. Off course I still haven’t seen my screen lit up with 5 wilds here but I hope to one day. If you play this game I can’t say you will be blown away from the base game wins.

When I play I have small to almost descent wins. I don’t think I ever had a 100 x bet win during base play.The only thing that puts you back in playing are the two bonus games that you can win here. The first is a classical pick up bonus which is triggered when you get 3 or more map symbols on a winning payline. This bonus comes often in the game so it’s a nice balance booster. Here you choose 3 or more items depending on the number of map symbols you won. The wins here aren’t very big and range from 5 to 10 x bet but it is enough because they come often. The second bonus is the free spins bonus which is activated when you get 3 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. You get 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier. In the free spins bonus I usually get 30 to 50 x bet wins. I have to say that the free spins are pretty hard to get and I have never managed to retrigger them. I hope my luck will change some day and I will win big on this slot.

Desert treasure it is an old game from playtech, but very popular, because later playtech released sequel of this game desert treasure II online slot, so lets see what this game have to entertain players and show to us.

I played this game couple of times only, because i am not big fan of it, and i did not like such games at all. This game has 20 paylines, and i am glad to say that this game have no any progressive jackpot, so RTP(return to player) here is slightly higher than on jackpot games. Game featuring bonus round by hitting bonus symbols on active payline, i played around 20+ bonus rounds, and never win more than 50 x total bet, so did not expect from it great and huge winds worth to make screenshot. Wilds involved in game, and pay great 500 x total bet in base game. Free spins can be triggered by 3+ scatters, and award 10 free spins with tripled prizes. 5 scatters here pay really huge, 500 x total bet, once i get 4 scatters on first 4 reels, and almost believe that 5 also lands, but no luck for me. Best hit in base game is not even close to x 100 total bet, but once i had free spins which retriggered 4 times, and i won around 200 x total bet, and this is my biggest win at this game, that was at eurogrand casino, because i play playtech slots mostly in this group of casinos.

game has medium variance, old graph, and nothing really interesting. No progressive jackpot, RTP is higher, but this means that it is hard to expect big wins from this game, most likely i will not open this one again, i did not like such games with good payouts only for 5 wilds or 5 scatters. Second part of this game is a bit better, but generally i think this two slots is not for me.

I remember the first time I received a bonus in Playtech casino I tried first all slots here playing for virtual money and I thought that the Desert Treasure slot was offering the most frequent wins and the highest return. Maybe it is just an opinion or maybe I was a lucky that day but whatever would be, Desert Treasure, along with Great Blue and X- Men is one of the sound slotswhen you enter into a Playtech casino.This slot has 20 paylines and one can play with a minimum total bet of 20 cents (1 cent/line). Getting a bonus of 5-10 Euro (which most Playtech casinos offer as no deposit bonus to the all new players) you will be able to play here over 200 spins.

The theme of the slot is the desert and its treasures, the „Camel“ and „Bedouin“ symbols paying here most. Playing on the long run, you will acquire very frequent small wins that will add together and the overall gain or loss will not be greater than a few (1-3) Euros in 100 spins. In this respect this slot is like a Swiss watch fine tuned by the watchmaker with a thin screwdriver. Otherwise, like in almost all Playtech slots you will have here the two standard features: Free Spins (triggered about once every 100 normal spins by 3 Scatters - „Girl“ - ) and Bonus game (triggered about 30-50 normal spins by 3 „Map and watch“ symbols in aligned on a payline). In the bonus game one is offered many pots and chests from which the player chooses at random three of them, each offering a certain amount of money. Overall, the bonus game is paying between 50 cents and 1 Euro and during Free Spins one can win about 3-6 Euro. The only way you can get in this slot with zero balance is to have The Free Spins round triggered after more than 150-250 normal spins.

Overall the slot brings the desert air, the spins are played very fast and total payout is the best possible.
Desert treasure slot attracted me a long time a go when i was just starting my online gambling adventures and i never played it again since that. I registered with my first playtech casino and saw desert treasure slot in the list, i thought this slot could be similar to book of ra my favorite slot in land casinos so that was the reason i opened it in the first place.

I did not had much money at my disposal so i started betting small so i can discover some bonus rounds this slot has to offer.It did not take very long time and i triggered free spins feature.Ten free spins ended in a blink of an eye and got me "amazing" win of around 1 dollars lol.I told my self it was just a bad luck and i should keep trying.

Next bonus that pope up was when i got three compasses.The Arabian dude told me i found hidden oasis and get to pick three items for my efforts.I was happy like child in a candy land.In my mind i could see bills of ten and fifty dollars coming out of those items but in reality i got next "amazing" win of little more than 2 dollars total.I must admit that my bet per spin was just one dollar but still those bonus round i won payed terribly.

Since i already wasted most of my money i continued playing and after few more spins i had lost it all.That was very nasty welcome to online gambling i had.I felt like new convict first night in jail.Ever since that i avoided desert treasure slot in fact i think i developed some kind of desert treasure phobia.Now to summarize i will rate this slot in my three categories.First payouts i give it 0/10,second fun i had playing desert treasure and this i will rate 1/10 and last win big bet small possibility and that is also 1/10

Desert Treasure features 20 Paylines of entertainment, 10 Free Spins at 3x multiplier, a normal wild cobra...watch out for those fangs and a simple but not so high paying bonus. Desert Treasure in my perspective is like the video slot for meeting wagering requirements on because the smaller wins are often recognized for coming about and easy to say this that the bonus, triggered when at least 3 compasses land on an active payline appear, boost winnings enough to make more wagers again and again. It gives me that status quo feel that both my cash wagers and the winnings coming from Desert Treasure are fighting each other...yet I don't even make note that they are because they are dueling from right under my nose.

The amount I usually win for a $1 triggering bet is about $17 inside the 10 free spins and I do find that retriggering them can be difficult to follow up. The bonuses for that matter can be just my average picking bonus to grab prizes close to my triggering bet. It's not at all like the picks I would see in Age of Discovery, Gift Rap or Pollen Nation under the Microgaming software where it literally lets my balance grow but here I'm begging for some water in a super dry desert instead of collecting gold. About $5 or less can be expected for Desert Treasures bonus. I have to say for a small bonus like this one, the new Desert Treasure II came a long way from the original version. The bonuses are more interesting, there are expanding wilds but......I will save my story for Desert Treasure II.

Frequent wins in a small scale, good enough to finish a good amount of wagering requirements, cobras bite only if I'm close enough to grab a good win, a little if they are hungry and overall the free spins look like they need some help getting out of the quicksand, it struggles to provide wins once it's trapped inside it.

Desert Treasure gets a 7.3 out of 10!
