The American Southwest may not seem like it has a lot to offer, but things are not always what they seem, and you will be missing out big time if you do not give Desert Kingdom slot a go. We recommend going on this unique adventure alone since the desert is a perfect place to collect your thoughts and ponder on the meaning of life.
Hiding behind the unforgiving nature is amazing wildlife, with cougar, falcon, fox and lizard just some of the wild animals appearing in front of you, where very good graphics and fitting sound effects create one-of-a-kind atmosphere that keeps you coming back for more.
Despite the fact it launched back in 2012, Desert Kingdom looks more appealing than most slot games available online, and we are not even talking about the special features that also include the Random Jackpot. The base line wins, however, are far from impressive and this is something you need to be aware of.
We really like the fact that Desert Kingdom offers UK casino players a choice between a total of 15 coin denominations, and chances are the favourite coin value of most players will be somewhere in the $0.01-$5 range. At the same time, they can select anywhere from 1 to 25 paylines to be active.
The game options panel is pretty straightforward and all you need to do is use up and down arrows to select preferred values. Clicking on any of the two Info buttons opens the Paytable, where you can check out Game Rules, Features and Lines format. As that is usually the case, three or more matching icons on an active payline awards an instant credit win.
Sunflower Wild substitutes for any game icon with the exception of Scatter, applying x2 multiplier to all wins. Meanwhile, Desert Kindgom Logo is Scatter and this is the only game symbol that pays in any position on the game screen.
Should you happen to receive three Scatters anywhere on reels I, III and V, the Desert Kingdom Feature will be unlocked. You then need to select one of the icons to reveal the number of picks in the second screen. The picks will determine the amount of free games and multiplier in the subsequent Free Spins round, with 3 free spins and x2 multiplier added to the values you win by picking from different elements.
Last but not least, each real-money spin on the Desert Kingdom slot can trigger the Random Jackpot progressive, although it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to wait for the jackpot to strike.
Desert Kingdom is probably one of the best looking Realtime Gaming slots we have reviewed, with excellent execution evident every step of the way. But, when we get past the visual appeal, the 2012 release doesn’t have a lot to offer, given that base line payouts are nowhere near good enough and the main bonus round can take quite some time to trigger.
