The Sahara Riches: Cash Collect slot by Playtech is set on the Arabian Peninsula. The reels are set against a backdrop of a lush oasis surrounded by dry desert sands, with a mysterious white palace in the distance.
The online slot is played on a grid of 5 reels and 3 with 30 fixed paylines. Potential wins are formed with three or more matching symbols on a payline, starting on the first reel on the left. The betting range is vast, with a minimum of 0.10 and a max of 500. But with a maximum possible win of only 500 x your stake, you can only have the chance to win large sums of money on this game by playing at the higher end.
On the other hand, the game does have a long list of special features, as well as excellent graphics and an immersive soundtrack, to keep you entertained, making it a great choice for the casual player.
There are colourful lower-value royals appearing on the reels alongside the premium symbols of a sand timer, a dagger, a pink bottle, and an emerald statue of a camel. The most valuable symbol is a treasure chest full of gold that will pay you 6 x your stake for five of a kind.
A mysterious veiled woman acts as the slot’s Wild. She will take the place of any standard symbol on a payline to help you form wins. There is no Scatter in the traditional sense, but number icons combined with the Cash Collect symbol that can only land on reel 5 combine to trigger bonuses. The coins and the jewels that you will also see appearing on the reels come into play in these bonuses.
One thing there is no lack of in this desert is bonus features, Sahara Riches: Cash Collect has three of them in total;

Free Spins bonus
The Cash Collect symbol also plays a role in unlocking the Free Spins feature. If there are any number symbols on the reels when a Cash Collect lands on reel 5, they are added together, and you get that many Free Spins. For example, if you have a +2 and a +7 on the grid when a Cash Collect hits, you'll get 9 Free Spins. In this round, the Cash Collect can land on any reel to give you more chances at a cash prize or additional Free Spins.
Cash Collect Prizes bonus
There are four fixed jackpot prizes that can be won in the Sahara Riches: Cash Collect slot game. To do this, you need to land a diamond icon and a Cash Collect symbol on the same spin. You'll then be awarded one of the jackpots at random. Their values are;
