Desert Shark Slot is an adventurous slot from Fantasma Games that features a stunning Arabian pirate sailor and his witty crew voyaging through the blazing-hot desert.
The theme of the game is somewhat confusing considering that you’ve got a shark-like ship sailing through the sands of the desert with a real-life shark on the other end swimming through the sands and heading straight to the ship. While this would sound like a head-on battle to claim the territory, both parties have full-on smiles as they go head to head.
Truly the only thing that makes sense about this slot is its stunning 3D graphics which is quite exciting considering the flopped backstory. Players can also enjoy an impressive set of bonus features and a max win of 16,000x their stake.
How to play
Desert Shark Slot is played on 5 reels with 40 win lines to form winning combinations. Punters can take a spin on the reels when they set a wager. Wager limits are from 0.20 to 100 per spin.
On the reels, you will find symbols of bottles, camels, compasses, and the pirate prince. The dashing pirate prince is the highest-paying symbol with up to 5x the stake for 5 in combination.
Desert Shark Slot Special Features
The game’s wild is the gold W symbol which will replace all standard symbols on the reels. It will payout if used to form a winning combination. 5 wilds on an active Payline will payout 7.5x your stake.
There are Swim Wilds and Dynamite Wilds symbols which activate the special features of the game. There is also a bonus scatter symbol which will trigger the free spins feature.
Swim Swim Feature
The Swim Wild symbol will activate a Swim Swim Feature. This feature is triggered when you land 2 or more of the wild symbols in the base game. The wild can only appear on reels three, four, and five.
Collecting 3 bonus scatter symbols on the reels will reward you 8 free spin. During the free spins bonus, you would need to land only 1 Swim Wild to activate the Swim Swim feature.
When activated, the wild symbol will upgrade a random number of symbols to its left on the same row including bonus scatters. These symbols are upgraded with an x2 multiplier.
During the free spins, 1-6 Dynamite Wilds will be placed on reels one to three which, when triggered, could upgrade additional symbols and make for bigger payouts.
The Dynamite Wild symbols will only appear on reels one, two, and three during the free spins feature.
There is no jackpot prize up for grabs but this slot offers a decent max payout of 16,000x your stake.
Return to Player (RTP)
Punters would enjoy a Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 96.33% on this slot.
Desert Shark Slot features impressive visuals with a good number of wilds that would make for exciting gameplay. Players might not find its payouts in the base game area to be very encouraging even with the highest combination.
However, the free spins feature and wilds will introduce multipliers that can generate huge wins of up to 16,000x the stake.
