Slot Name: Texan Tycoon
USA Players: Accepted
The oil rig theme seems to be quite popular, as there are a couple of slot machines on this topic, from different developers. Texas Tycoon is RTG’s attempt at such a slot machine, and it gives the player a game that is inspired by the state with the same name from United States, which is known for its oil production. The game focuses on the oil rigs as much as it does on the tycoon that owns them. There are 25 bet lines, arranged on 5 reels, which can bring you up to $75,000 in prizes.
Given the US inspired theme of the slot, it’s naturally going to be available in that country as well.
Betting & Jackpots
Like most RTG slots do, this one also asks the player to use coins which have a maximum denomination of $5, with the minimum at $0.01. Since 25 lines can be active, bets of up to 25 coins are used, with a maximum value for them being at $125.
A 15,000x jackpot is possible, if you get the right symbols on the reels, mixing cash icons with Tycoon wilds. The value would be $75,000 in that case. Without the wild, the jackpot is at only $7,500.
Though you will find that the wild symbol only appears on the 3rd reel, there is actually a very good reason for that. Whenever this wild, represented by the Tycoon, substitutes for a symbol and forms a combo, it also applies a multiplier to the wins, which can be at 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x. It even applies to the top jackpot value.
The Oil Well is the scatter, and this symbol can reward you for getting enough of them on the reels, even if the position isn’t on the same line. They pay 1x to 200x the triggering wager, for up to five symbols.
Scattered Oil Wells will give you free spins as well. You trigger a picking feature with 3+ scatters, and you click on an Oil Well, to discover how many free spins you won. You can get up to 25. All prizes get multiplied by 3x if won during the free games.
The symbols which are related to the theme, to the oil industry, are all designed properly, showing the tycoon, workers, oil barrels, oil wells and cash, while the playing cards are inspired by Texas, and come in various colors, with metal outlines and with stars on them.
It’s not the only oil themed slot machine to be released, so you will find a few competitors as well to try out. I’d recommend this one over the others though, especially because of the prizes it can trigger.
