The design of the slot machine is basic, not much colour or design on display. When you launch the slot machine, you’ll notice that the screen is brown with the only colour coming from the reels. Left and right of the reels are 10 different coloured squares, these are not only there to brighten your screen, these are there to highlight the 10 different paylines. Theme wise, we couldn’t make out if it was Arabian or Egyptian, so we will go with a mixture of both. Symbols on the reels are; camel, treasure chest, tea set, prince, princess, iguana, scorpion and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
The came plays an important role in the Desert Tales slot machine, so keep your eyes open for him.
Beneath the reels is the control panel with the usual setting on, such as paytable, start and boxes to highlight your current balance, last win and selected bet. You can choose to play either 10 coins or 500 coins – you cannot play anything else.
Hidden Winning Potential
As with all slot machines, you have to bet maximum stakes in order to win the most cash. Bet 500 coins per spin and you will have a chance of winning the non-progressive 500,000-coin jackpot, with five of the camel symbols. The prince and princess can both offer 37,500 coins and 75,000 coins for five of a kind – the camel is what boosts the prizes in this slot game.
Trek Far for Features
The desert wouldn’t be the same without a camel and this slot machine wouldn’t be the same either. The camel is the wild symbol, so it will substitute for all other symbols (bar scatter) and it will also produce the non-progressive jackpot. Now, it has another capability, should you complete a winning payline of five of a kind with a camel being one of those substituted symbols, the amount on offer doubles!
Scatters are represented by the treasure chest – 3 or more and you’ll be awarded the free spins bonus. When you trigger the free spins bonus, you will be awarded 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier – this means all wins will be tripled.
Base game wins of less than 10x your total bet will initiate the gamble feature. Guess the colour suit of cards correctly to double your money. If you can guess the correct suit – you will quadruple your cash.
What We Think
When it comes to pilgrimages, they generally take a long time and that’s very suited to Desert Takes because you are required to play a long time before triggering a decent win or the free spins feature. When you manage to trigger the free spins bonus, any winnings will be multiplied by 3 – which can boost your bankroll drastically.
If it wasn’t for the non-progressive jackpot of the camel in the slot game, it wouldn’t be much fun at all Desert Tales is a high variance slot machine that may be basic, but it doesn’t require you to do much other than select your bet and spin the reels.
