In the middle of the desert lays a secret oasis. There, a hidden treasure waits those who are bold enough to take it. Will you be the one to claim them? Countless others have tried, but this just might be your lucky day.
Just like other old-school slot machine games such as "Desert Treasure II" or "the captain's treasure", "Desert Treasure" offers stylish and sleek cartoon graphics based on exotic locals – this time, we are going deep into the Arabian Desert, with art depicting memorable characters and locals. The art, however, is merely a backdrop for an amazing game, one you should try at least once.
"Desert Treasure" is a 5 reel , 20 line slot machine game, where the goal of the game is to line up matching sets of symbols across one or more of the pay-lines. The game board is comprised of five reels, each emblazoned with the symbols of the game across its face. When you click the SPIN! button the reels rapidly spin, eventually stopping to create a random board of 15 symbols – if any of these symbols form a matching set, from left to right, across any of the 20 pay-lines, you win! The prize you win is based on the line bet, multiplied by a number based on the rarity of the matched set, with the highest prize being 10,000 times the line bet amount! And since each pay-line is agnostic to the others, you can win up to 20 times on each spin. With 20 potential wins, each being up to 10,000 times the line bet amount, this is one game that can change your life!
To add excitement to the game, any spin can also win the desert treasure bonus. To win this bonus, you must line up three or more bonus symbols across any pay-line. When you do, you travel to the desert treasure bonus screen, where the Sheikh will offer you a variety of treasures, each worth a different amount. You get to choose one treasure for each bonus symbol you lined up. Each of these treasures can be worth up to 10 times the total bet, or 200 times the line bet if you were betting on all lines – and you get to choose at least three! This bonus really is worth a lot of money for the lucky winner.
As an added bet for those brave lucky few, you can also play the dollar bell bet. To the top right of the screen you will see the dollar bell buy-in option. When you click it, you get to bet a fixed amount, and then choose 5 numbers out of a possible 49. When you spin the reels, 5 numbers will be randomly chosen – if some or all of those match the numbers you've selected, you win! And since this is a progressive jackpot, every time you bet on it, a small portion of the bet goes into the pot, and you have a chance to will it all back, as well as the seed money, with every spin!

Tips from the pros
"Desert Treasure" is a game that is easy to learn but hard to master. When you play, start low to familiarize yourself with the game – but remember that all prizes, including those in the bonus feature, are based on your total bet, so make sure to eventually rise the bet to make the game worthwhile.
