The Cash Collect series of games grows even larger with this North African-inspired title! Of course, the Sahara Riches: Cash Collect slot is set in the middle of the most famous desert in the world, with sandy dunes taking up most of the screen. There are, however, a few different points of interest in the background, including a majestic palace and a watering hole. As for the audio, there is enchanting music and a range of interactive sound effects.
Sahara Riches: Cash Collect was produced by Playtech, meaning it comes with their popular user interface. This provider has a considerable portfolio of titles, including the likes of Age of the Gods: Apollo Power, Bee Frenzy Thundershots, and Sorcerer’s Guild of Magic. Playtech has also created a range of table games, such as Buster Blackjack and live Baccarat Squeeze.
First up in Sahara Riches: Cash Collect are the standard J, Q, K, and A symbols that can be found across many online slots. Next up is a sand timer, a dagger, a bottle of perfume, a camel, and a green treasure chest. If five of these premium symbols form a matching combination, players will be awarded with 2.5x, 2.5x, 3x, 4x, or 6x their stake size, in that order.
Special symbols consist of a wild symbol, shown as a veiled woman, which can replace any standard or premium symbol along a payline. Collect icons are also present in this release, simply displayed as the 'Cash Collect' logo. Finally, there is a selection of numbers, golden coins, and diamonds, all of which have their own associated bonus.
All of the different bonus modes in this slot are associated with the 'Cash Collect' mechanic. Should the collect symbol land on the fifth reel, any numbers, gold coins, or diamonds will be accumulated. If any gold coins are collected, their associated values will be totalled up and awarded to the player at the end of the spin.
The diamonds represent different jackpots, which can either be mini, minor, major, or grand, with values sitting at 20x, 50x, 200x, and 500x the stake size, respectively. If one is collected, a jackpot will be chosen at random before being awarded to the player. Multiple diamond symbols can land during the same spin, too!
Last but not least are the numbers, which can award players with free spins. If there is more than one of these in view and the 'Cash Collect' symbol appears on reel 5, they will be added together before the player is awarded with that number of free spins. This mode will play almost exactly like the base game; however, the 'Cash Collect' icon can appear on any of the reels for the duration of the round.
Many punters would agree that Sahara Riches is a fitting release for the Cash Collect series of slots. All of the regular features are there, including a free spins bonus and the four different jackpots. The audio in this slot is also particularly immersive, with an assortment of different sounds that can trigger at any time!
