5-Reel 20-line Slots
The object of Desert Treasure is to obtain a winning symbol combination by spinning the reels.
To play the game:
- Choose your coin size by clicking the + and – buttons on the right of the screen.
- Choose your line bet by clicking the Bet Per Line button. Each click adds a coin to the line bet. Once you’ve reached the maximum amount, clicking the button again will reset the line bet to one coin.
- Choose your paylines. You can click the Select Lines button to add a payline, or use the coloured buttons on both sides of the reels. Whenever you select a higher payline, you’ll also select all the lower ones (i.e., if you activate payline 18, paylines 1 through 17 will be active as well). You can also click Bet Max to activate all the paylines and spin the reels.
- The amount of money you bet on a game round is the line bet multiplied by the number of active paylines.
- Click Spin (if you did not press Bet Max) to spin the reels.
- If the reels show a winning combination after they stop (along a payline you bet on), you win according to the winning table. Click the Paytable button to see the paytable, if you wish. Close the paytable by clicking thePaytable button again. If you win on multiple paylines simultaneously, your winnings are added up.
Active paylines are represented by lines that appear over the reels. You can activate paylines and see their shape by progressively clicking the Bet One button.
Please note: You only win if a combination occurs on an active payline. There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much you're betting on a single payline. The total bet shows how much you're spending in this game round. The payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet, not by the total bet. If you get winning combinations on more than one payline, the winnings for each payline are added up.
Payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To find the possible win amount, multiply the line bet by the payout.
If two winning combinations occur on the same line, the higher of them is paid out. If more than one active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up.
The winning combination must occur from left to right, otherwise it is not paid.
The Wild symbol can stand for any other (except Scatter and Bonus), to make the best possible winning combination. There is also a separate payout for several Wild symbols on an active payline.
The Scatter symbols do not have to occur on a particular payline – if there are two or more of them on the game field, you get an additional win. The payout for scatter symbols is multiplied by your total bet.
If you get three or more scatter symbols, you get 10 free spins (no money is deducted from your balance for them). During free spins, all wins (except the bonus round) are tripled. You can win more free spins on a free spin.
When you get three or more Bonus symbols on an active payline, you are taken to the Bonus round. There, you get to choose as many prizes as you had bonus symbols. Each prize has a different payout. Bonus payouts are multiplied by the line bet.
This is a lotto-type progressive sidegame where you pick 5 numbers out of 49. Then once you start the main game, five numbers will be drawn randomly. The more numbers match your selection, the more you win. If all five numbers match, you win the Jackpot.
Dollar Ball resides in the top right part of the screen. Click Enable to play it. You will see a set of numbers, from 1 to 49. Click on any five of them to select manually (click again to deselect), or click on Random pick to have it done for you automatically. If you want to change the selected numbers, click on any number to start again. Click Activate to hide the numbers and confirm your selection. If you want to cancel the Dollar Ball game, click Disable.
Your numbers will be shown in a row of squares at the top of the screen. Once you start a round of the main game, the drawn numbers will appear just below them in the circles. If any of the numbers match your selection, the squares will change color and your win amount will appear below. It will be added to your balance along with any winnings from the main game round. You don’t have to win the main game round to win the sidegame.
Dollar Ball will be played along with every main game round, with the same numbers, until you either change the numbers or disable the sidegame.
The paytable for Dollar Ball can be found in the main game paytable. Click on the Dollar Ball Paytable button to access it.
One of the possible wins in this game is the progressive Jackpot. A small percentage of each bet, by every person playing this game in each of many online casinos, is added to a common pot. When a player gets the right result, that player wins the entire Jackpot (in some games you can also win part of it).
After a Jackpot has been won, a new pot is started, with the casinos contributing a base amount of money (called a seed). This ensures that even if you get a Jackpot result in a game right after someone else has won the Jackpot, you will still get a large win.
Each game has its own Jackpot, built up by all the casinos that offer the game.
- In some games you have to make a specific bet to be eligible for the Jackpot.
- If you get disconnected in the middle of a game round, your game does not change the value of the Jackpot. The state of the game up to that point is remembered by the casino; the next time you log in you can finish your game round with the same odds and without placing a new bet.
- If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino client), you will be notified of it by the casino.

|Seed (how much money the Jackpot starts out with):|| ||10 000 x bet size.|
