Playtech does seem to have a certain fascination with the concept of treasure on the reels, something that comes to mind on the back of our previous review, which was Captain’s Treasure. Here, the scene has shifted from the high seas t what we can only assume is the middle of nowhere, with the only sign of life nearby being a trader and his wares – although we assume that those wares do indeed include some of the expected treasure along the way. Twenty lines and some standard features mean that there is nothing to fear when it comes to playing this game and we have covered all of the best bits in the full review below.
What to Expect
As noted, the action kicks off here on this game with twenty win lines and players have plenty of flexibility when it comes to deciding on the coin bets that they wish to place on each of them. That is always good news when it comes to mobile play and the wins will soon start adding up as many of the symbols are rather valuable in their own right. The snake symbol is always helpful as when it lands, it can cover for any other symbol on the board except for the bonus and scatter icons. Two separate feature symbols do of course make for two different bonuses, so let’s take a look at what they are all about.
The first feature, and the simpler of the two, requires players to land three or more maps on the screen at the same time. These maps seemingly lead to the oasis, as this is where players will be taken with the right symbol combination. Several pots are then displayed on the screen and players have a couple of picks to grab some quick and easy wins – although we have to admit that these prizes are not exactly massive. Nevertheless, the feature hits often and is a great way to keep things going while you aim for the main bonus round.
A rather nondescript female character serves as the main scatter on the game, and you will be on the lookout for three in view once more in order to bag a bonus. The resulting award is ten free games that can be retriggered, and every prize landed as part of this feature will be worth three times as much as the corresponding award in the base game.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
There is nothing overly complex about Desert Treasure, but that is certainly no bad thing when you are playing on a mobile device. The game is starting to feel a bit dated but the winning potential remains as strong as ever and we can certainly see a case for players enjoying what this one is all about. It is certainly one of the better games in the Playtech mobile range, which is relatively weak compared to other mobile developers, and that alone can be enough to warrant some close attention.
