Desert Shark Slot Review – Fantasma Games

Fantasma Games are one of many underrated studios in the casino industry. Their games are available across 200+ sites and offer 10 games in total so far. There are new additions coming to add to their portfolio list. Their newest game is titled ‘Desert Shark‘, which is available to play now across all sites.

Sharks in the desert is definitely a new theme in the casino industry. The visuals are well designed, with hills of sand and sharks charging towards a ship. The artwork has a unique touch which I like. It is nice to see something unique for visuals, especially form a smaller studio.

Desert Shark has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 40 set pay lines. This game is high variance due to the set RTP of 96.33% and max win capped at 16,000x. You can bet from £0.20 – £30.

Desert Shark Symbols & Paytable

There are 14 symbols in total, this includes 4 low paying symbols. These are represented by star, skull, snake and sandcastle designed coins. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by lamps, bottles, compasses, camels and a character symbol. In addition to these paying symbols is a golden wild, scatter symbol, dynamite wild and swim wild golden shark symbol. The highest paying symbol is the golden wild, which pays 7.5x for 5 across a pay line.

Swim wild symbols can activate the swim swim feature, this symbol appears on reels 3,4 and 5. Dynamite wild symbols can be placed on reels 1,2 and 3 in the free spins feature. Multiplier wild symbols multiply line wins they are part of by their multipliers. The max multiplier is x9. If 2 or more multiplier wild symbols are part of the same win, the multipliers are multiplied by each other.

Desert Shark Features

The ‘Swim Swim Feature‘ is triggered when 3 or more swim wild symbols land during the base game or 1 or more during the free spins. Each symbol upgrades a random number of symbols to the left on the same row. Regular symbols and bonus scatter turn into wilds, wild symbols are turned into x2 multiplier wilds. If it is a multiplier wild symbol the multiplier will be increased by 1x.

Central to Desert Shark is the ‘Free Spins‘ feature. This is activated when you land 3 scatters on reels 2,3 and 4 during one spin. This will award 8 free spins, 1-6 dynamite wilds are randomly placed on reels 1-3 at the start of each spin. 1 or more swim wild symbols will activate the Swim Swim feature. A swim wild landing during spins activated all dynamite wilds in the same row, each randomly upgrades 2-6 symbols.


Overall, I think this game is an amazing creation by Fantasma Games. There is such fun while playing thanks to each feature and big potential on offer. I hope this game is successful as it is a great slot. Be sure to try the game for yourself and check out our exclusive casino offers.
