The Desert Treasure slot is a classic low volatility Playtech game, this old timer doesn’t do well in the transfer to mobile and tablet.
Playtech will always have the problem that all it’s slots will be compared to it’s latest releases (specifically the Marvel series such as The Incredible Hulk or the Fantastic Four). These are video slots that really pop. This Desert Treasure slot machine really doesn’t.
Don’t take us wrong, this low volatility slot machine has a few things to recommend it. With a 97.05% return to player rate, if you fancy a few spins but don’t have a large bank roll, you’ll be able to keep spinning for a while with this mobile slot. But if you are going to give us lots of little wins and no hope for a big jackpot win, then we expect entertainment. Which we do not get with this graphically poor and below average game.
The Click Me bonus feature will be the one that you’ll hit often, but gives unimpressive wins. At best 3x or 4x your bet. The free spins bonus feature on the other hand, is a different story, as here you’ll get some wins that can be 50x to 100x your initial bet. More than worth the feature when it hits, 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier certainly has a punch. However if you want a slot that is visually more interesting, a low bet limit with low variance/volatility, then we would much rather recommend Safari Heat mobile slot.
So why are we being so hard on Desert Treasure slot game? Good RTP, low risk, great betting range suiting conservative and big betters… what more could you want?
We want… one of the better Playtech slots that’s what. One that excites and innovates and gives us goose bumps at every spin. As it stands this, is at best an average mobile slot but a poor Playtech slot. To be kind, it suits the smaller smartphone screens far better than tablets, and will suit players who want some quick uncomplicated low bet spins with all the features you’ve come to expect from every slot out there in the market today.

Wild: The King Cobra strikes randomly, replacing all symbols except scatters or bonuses.
Click Me Bonus: 3 or more Map symbols will open up an oasis of pots that you get to pick for some small wins. An average feature that hits frequently.
Scatter & Free Spins: The real Desert Treasure, 3 Exotic Beauty Woman symbols will trigger 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Where you'll get the real wins, these can be re-triggered and give you some decent wins.
Desert Treasure mobile slot doesn't live up to it's online counterpart. That said, we were never a huge fan of the online version, appreciating the easy high payout rate of it only when we fancied a change. So it's no surprise that the mobile version thrills us less, with the graphics lacking excitement on the smaller screen.
However, with a 97.05% return to player rate and plenty of wins to refill your bank roll, this is certainly a mobile slot that will please players who need a few spins without the possible danger of losing it all in the first three minutes.
