Take a spin on Desert Treasure online casino slot, which features Free Games, Scatter Wins, Wild Symbols and a Hot Bonus Game. This casino game blends fun slot play with the chance of a big jackpot – up to 10000 times your Line Bet. Don’t forget players at William Hill Casino can also enter the Dollar Ball side bet game for the chance to win a massive Progressive Jackpot!
The basic aim when playing Desert Treasure online slot is to spin the reels in order to match symbols on active paylines. There are also Bonus Features that can add to your winnings in the game.
To Play the Game:
Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels in order to achieve a Line Win. You can view the paylines as they appear on the reels by actively clicking the Lines button, or by opening the Paytable and viewing the paylines graphic.
Only active paylines can register Line Wins. Scatter Symbols do not need to appear on paylines to pay.
Please Note: there is a clear difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount of money wagered on each individual payline, i.e. coin value x number of coins wagered. The Total Bet is the accumulative amount wagered on all paylines, i.e. Line Bet x Total Bet. The Total Bet is the amount deducted from your balance to play a spin on Desert Treasure online slot.
All the potential payouts for every winning combination are displayed in the Paytable. When calculating the win amount for a Line Win you must multiply the value displayed in the Paytable by the Line Bet. For example, landing 5 Camel Symbols on an active payline will pay 400 x Line Bet, if your Line Bet was 10 you would win 4000. For a Scatter Win multiply the value in the Paytable by the Total Bet. More details will be given on Scatter Wins in a section below.
All winning combinations (Line Wins) must occur in an unbroken chain of at least two consecutive symbols, beginning on reel 1.
The Wild Symbol – represented by the Cobra – substitutes for all other symbols, with the exception of the Bonus and Scatter Symbols, to help form winning combinations. The Wild Symbol also has its own unique award for matching Wild Symbols only on a payline.
If multiple wins occur on the same payline you will be paid for the highest winning combination only. Multiple wins on different paylines are added together, along with any Scatter Wins, and awarded as a Total Win.
The Scatter Symbol, which is represented by the Desert Lady, does not need to land on any particular payline to be regarded as active. If you land 2 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will be awarded a cash win. This win is calculated by multiplying the relevant value in the Paytable by the Total Bet amount.
If you land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels the Free Games Bonus will be activated. In the Free Spins Bonus:
The Bonus Symbol – represented by the Desert Map with Compass – does not have a monetary value. Its purpose is to launch the Desert Treasure Bonus Game. If you land 3 or more Bonus Symbols on a payline – in the same way as a Line Win – the Bonus Game will be activated. In the Bonus Game:
When you play Desert Treasure online slot at William Hill Casino you can also enter a side bet Jackpot game called Dollar Ball. The outcome of the Dollar Ball Jackpot game has no bearing upon the outcome of Desert Treasure slot and vice versa.
Dollar Ball is a lottery style game where the aim is to match your numbers (choose 5 numbers between 1 and 49) to the numbers drawn. Matching 5 numbers will land the Progressive Jackpot, which is normally a very large sum of money.
To Play Dollar Ball:
Please note: when you spin the reels again, you will be automatically entered into the Dollar Ball game again – and the entry fee deducted from your balance – unless you press the Disable button.
When you play Dollar Ball alongside Desert Treasure you are playing for a Progressive Jackpot award. Therefore certain information should be made known to you:
A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a small percentage of each player’s bets. This can be across a range of games and different online casinos. The idea is that it grows and grows until it is won by a single player. The casino will provide a base amount – called a seed fund – to ensure that the Progressive Jackpot is still large, even if won twice in quick succession.
The Dollar Ball Jackpot is awarded and funded as displayed in the table below:
Seed (the base fund provided by the casino) = 10,000 x bet size.
Contribution rate (percentage of each wager taken to fund jackpot) = 10%.
Win Condition (what is needed to land jackpot prize) = match 5 numbers.
Win requirement (how to be eligible for the jackpot) = enter the Dollar Ball game.
