Arabian exploration and desert adventures are the themes of Desert Treasure 2, an online slot created by the developers at Playtech. Desert Treasure 2 offers imagery of desert animals, palm trees and beautiful Arabian girls, along with 5 reels and 20 adjustable paylines.
A sequel to the popular original Desert Treasure slot, Desert Treasure 2 offers bonus features like free spins, expanding wilds, and multipliers. Players can also trigger a Treasure Bonus game, which offers cash prizes and more.
Graphics, Themes and Setting
Desert Treasure 2 is set in the heart of a scorching desert. The backdrop of the game is sandy dunes and a baking desert floor, with pyramids and palm trees just visible on the horizon. A funky Arabian soundtrack plays as players spin the reels of the game, and each winning combination has its own sound effects as well.
The symbols on the reels of this slot range from desert animals like lizards and scorpions to camels, green palm trees, and a pair of male and female nomads in traditional desert garb.
Desert Treasure 2 Reel Symbols
The reel symbols in the Desert Treasure 2 online slot consist of both playing card icons you might have noticed in POLi poker and themes symbols. The playing cards offer lower wins throughout the game, and include 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, each of which is accessorised by a tortoise, spider, lizard, scorpion or snake.
The higher valued symbols in the game include Arabian camels, oasis palm trees, and an Arabic nomad in a white turban and tunic. The nomad is the most valuable of these symbols, awarding a 10,000 coin fixed jackpot when players land 5 of his symbol in a winning combination. The palm trees are next, awarding 500 coins for 5 of a kind.
Wild, Scatter and Bonus Icons
The wild symbol in Desert Treasure 2 is a golden cobra. This wild symbol can fill in for all other symbols in the game to create winning combinations, except for the scatter and bonus symbols. The wild symbol also expands on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The scatter symbol in this online slot is a beautiful Arabian girl, who activates the free spins feature. There is also a bonus symbol, in the form of a desert treasure map.
Desert Treasure 2 Free Spins
Once 3 or more scatter symbols land in the base game, the Desert Treasure 2 free spins feature will begin. Here, players will be awarded 15 free spins, and all of their winnings in the feature will be doubled as well. It is also possible to retrigger the free spins by landing another 3 or more scatter symbols.
The Treasure Bonus Feature
Desert Treasure 2 also offers a Treasure Bonus game, which is triggered by 3 or more bonus map symbols on the reels. Players may choose 3 out of 7 treasure chests to claim cash prizes or reveal another treasure map.
If the treasure map is revealed, players can choose to visit either the Sanctum or the Secret Tent. More cash prizes will be on offer here, which players can claim by picking mystery jugs or plates of fruit from the display on the screen.
