The Desert Treasure slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Desert Treasure is 2.95% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
Poster 'thelawnet' from the CasinoMeister and Wizard of Vegas message boards has looked at these figures for the Dollar Ball and believes there to be an error. By their calculations given the seed level (10000 coins) and contribution rate (10%) the figures should be 36.43% at the point where the Jackpot is reset and the average house edge across all Jackpot values would be 26.43%. The house edge at any given point is dependent on the Jackpot size with a larger jackpot resulting in a smaller house edge.
Many treasures lie buried in the sands of the desert.
Desert Treasure had 5 reels, 20 paylines and you can bet 10 coins on each of the paylines.
The ‘Golden Cobra’ symbol is wild.
There are three bonus features when playing Desert Treasure. The first bonus feature is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Desert Maiden’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins with all wins tripled.
The second bonus features is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Map and Compass’ symbol in a row on an active payline starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing 11 containers at the hidden oasis. Pick 3 containers to reveal prizes.
The third bonus feature is the Dollar Ball feature. You activate this feature by click the Dollar Ball logo at the top right of the reels. When you activate this feature you select five numbers from the numbers 1-49. When you spin the reels some symbols come out with numbers attached. The more numbers that match the numbers you picked the more you win. The house edge of this side game/bonus feature is 27.59% - there is no other description for this other than suicidal.
Another Playtech game with a fantastically low house edge – not the best of the Playtech games, but still well worth a look.
