I was home alone and itching for something to do. I had tons of online casinos at my fingertips and Grand Duke was like a tall drink of water in an oasis. I was drawn to play Desert Treasure II.
Desert Treasure II is full of all the things I love, free spins, expanding wilds and a bonus game. The thing that I don’t like about this slot is that the bonus can only be triggered when the symbols are on an active payline. This makes hitting it a little bit more difficult. Even with that in my way, I was doing quite well. I was awarded the bonus game right away. I did find a treasure map which took me on to another level. My reward was nearly £15.
Back to spinning and I hit 4 bonus symbols but this time I won £6.90 even with a treasure map. Next up was free spins for £15.66. I hit 2 stacked wilds on reels 2 and 3 for a win just over £90. The best part is that it happened twice in a row. I thought there was some sort of mistake. It was pure luck.
Now I was up just over £200 so I kept going. I wanted to keep no less than £150 of my winnings. That was the worst case scenario. The bonus came around again for £7.50. I couldn’t believe my luck. Spinning at £1.20 seemed to be the sweet spot for this slot game. Next I got 4 palm tree symbols and 4 “9” symbols for £10.38. Another round of free spins came my way and within it, I triggered the bonus game. I thought this would be huge but I ended with £29.04 which was still good.
After a slew of bonus games and free spins I had built up my bankroll with a total win of £350. The desert was definitely my scene.
