Desert Treasure II Slot
Desert Treasure II is a 20 payline, 5 reel slot from Playtech. It doesn't take a slots expert to work out that this slot is the sequel to Playtech's 2006 release, and features more fun, games and fortune-seeking in the sand. It also has two bonus features and a very happy-looking camel. One of the features is called 'Oasis Bonus' but don't worry, neither of the Gallagher brothers makes an appearance! And speaking of volatility, we're pleased to say that this game has a much higher volatility that its predecessor, which should see you finding wins more often when you pop your virtual coins into this slot.
The symbols in this game start with playing card values from nine to ace, plus a few other desert-themed items, including that camel we mentioned earlier and a very lovely-looking dusky beauty. You can choose your coin size from 0.01 to 10.00, and the number of lines you want to gamble with from one to the maximum of twenty. Your final decision is your bet-per-line, from one to ten. Once you've sorted all that out you can climb aboard your camel and start treasure-seeking by hitting the 'spin' button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout in this game is for three nines or tens at 5x your bet-per-line. The top jackpot is for five of the desert explorer himself, at 10,000x.
A nasty-looking golden snake with blue jewelled eyes acts as the wild symbol but only appears on reels two, three and four. It is an expanding snake/wild though, and substitutes for all other symbols aside from the dusky lady and oasis bonus symbols.
Speaking of the dusky lady, she acts as a scatter symbol in this game. You need to land at least two of her anywhere to secure a win, but land at least three and you win fifteen free spins with a 2x multiplier.
The 'Oasis Bonus' symbol triggers the bonus game, and you need to win at least three of them to play. You get to choose from seven very colourful treasure chests in which you will find a cash prize. If you're lucky, you will also find a treasure map to a secret location where more treasures await, and more valuable ones too.
Desert Treasure II is an improvement on the original, but just how much of an improvement is down to whether you prefer simpler slots such as this one, or more complex ones with better animation and features. If the former is the case, then this is likely to one Playtech slot that you're unlikely to ever 'desert' !
