The Desert Cats slot promises something few other casino games dare to do; they give you at least 2 wild reels on every spin. But is that enough?
We weren’t sure how we felt after playing on this Desert Cats mobile slot. Mostly, because, on paper, this Williams casino game review should be amazing.
Desert Cats is basically a 7 reel 4-row slot with 50 paylines, with two reels wild at all times, and 4 reels wild during the free spin bonus games.
By default that should bring some brilliant gameplay.
How is this a criticism? Well, it’s a small one at that.
But basically, while the drama of having two reels wild at all times is wonderful to watch, the reality is that it makes 4 and 5 of a kind wins worth less on the paytables
Especially when you have 50 paylines, so you need multiple wins on multiple lines to get anything close to just 10x your bet.
So you are looking for 6 and 7 of a kind wins. Which is not easily done, especially in the base game. It’s a similar problem with the 100 paylines colossal slots like Kiss or Archangel Salvation by NetEnt.
But, all hope is not lost, mostly thanks to the fact that you do get two different ways of getting a top up to your wallet, both of which involve the free spins.
Why? Because during the Desert Cats bonus games, you get 4 out of 7 wild reels at all time. So suddenly, those multiple wins are more than possible.
We won over 200 times our bet here, which is why we couldn’t help to give this game 3 stars, even if we were edging towards 2 stars when we were playing on the base game.
You also are more likely to get one of the 5 in-game jackpots, as the gems that trigger the jackpots are on the wild symbols only. More wilds = more jackpots.
We suspect, much like us, how much you like this real money slot will depend on how quickly you catch those bonus games. If they don’t hit within 50 spins or so though, we’d recommend you move on to other ancient Egyptian god slots.

Wild Reels: The Wild Golden cats are the wild symbol and will replace any other symbols on the reels in order create wins over 50 paylines. They always cover 2 of the 7 total reels on each spin in the base game.
Free Spins Bonus: Land 3, 4 or 5 lion Symbols to be awarded 5 free spins, 15 or 50 free spins, respectively.
During the free spin, 2 sets of 2 adjacent reels (so 4 out of 7 reels) will be wild at all times.
How to trigger the Jackpots: There are 5 in-game jackpots you can win. How? Because some of the wilds will contain red gems. How many gems you land will match how much you can win.
We love Egyptian games and this Desert Cats online slot sits precariously somewhere between good and bad.
If we are honest, we can't admit loving this game, because we were bored as anything spinning 7 reels in the base game, even with the two wild reels.
But then we hit the free spins bonuses on multiple occasions, and we were impressed with some of the wins you can catch thanks to those jackpots and wilds.
But if you like mobile slot machines with big reels and big features, like Kronos Unleashed or the Mighty Black Night slot, then these Deserts Cats may provide you with a fun 10 or 20 minutes of casino play.
