sahara's Secret Slots

Sahara's Secret is an online slot machine game from Microgaming, one of the premier makers of online games. Inspired by the Greatest Desert, Sahara's Secret is a 3 reel, 1 pay line and 2 coin slot machine with a top prize of 3,000 coins. The game is as colorful as the Sahara. There are lots of blues, reds and gold that gives the game an exotic, old world feel.

The Desert's Secret

Sahara's Secret is easy to play because of its traditional feature of 3 reels and 1 pay line. The three reels form the winning combinations which are checked by the computer once the reels stop. Players can choose from coin values ranging from $0.25 to $5.00. Bet up to two coins across one line to play from one of the two pay tables. Of course, the more a player bets, the better the chance of winning the 3,000 coins jackpot.

Surviving the Desert

This 2 coin maximum game is ideal for players with a small bankroll. The pay out is not bad considering that hitting the prize with a one coin bet nets 1,000 coins. Players with maximum bets triple their prize with just an additional coin so playing with a max bet is a sound strategy. And like most slots, the game has a wild symbol. The Sahara's Secret logo is the wild symbol and substitutes for any other symbol to complete winning combinations. However, unlike most 2 coin max games, this game has no free spins, multiplier or scatter symbol. It also has no free practice or bonus games.

The Lure of the Land

Sahara's Secret can easily attract novices and the more experienced players because of the familiar feel to the game. Its interface and layout borrows heavily from traditional slot machines with the pay table on the right, the reels on the left and controls at the bottom. Granted, the colors and sounds can be mesmerizing but that's as far as this game's creativity goes. The woman holding sand in the palm of her hand looks regal but the icons are the usual ones except for the pot; the number 7 and the BARS icon are still present. Microgaming didn't do too bad with this game though. They maintained the features that made their other games popular while tweaking some graphics to make it look new. This in itself is enough to make slots aficionados content.
