The quest for black gold is the inspiration behind this industrial online slot from NextGen Gaming; it’s called Oil Mania and it if course themed around the the world’s foremost declining natural resource. The subject might be serious but this game is good fun so read the full review below for more detailed information.
Oil Mani is a five reel slot with three rows and up to twenty five paylines; a vast oil field below a setting sun fills the background, creating quite a bleak scene at odds with the entertainment we are expecting.
There are four high value symbols including the green-garbed oil worker, a gleaming gold car, a suitcase full of cash and a profit forecast; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.
The Oil Tycoon is the bonus symbol which activates one of the features; there is no dedicated wild symbol in the base game.
The Oil Tycoon appears only on reels two, three and four but if you can land him there he will trigger this enjoyable little bonus game.
An oil well wild will appear from below the reel that the Tycoon landed on and will make the bottom symbol wild. You will also be awarded three free spins and with each spin the oil well will extend upwards until the entire reel is wild.
If you can land another Oil Tycoon scatter during this phase you will receive another three spins and of course there will now be two wild reels.
Your prize will be calculated when the spins are exhausted.
Any win can be gambled by pressing the ‘Gamble’ button below the reels; you can now try and double or quadruple that win by guessing the colour or suit of the next card drawn There’s a maximum of five correct attempts but get any wrong and you’ll lose it all.
The graphics in Oil Mania look a bit simple but this is quite fun to play and the bonus feature fits in with the theme quite inventively. It’s certainly worth a few spins and has an RTP of 95.66%.
