Oil may be a finite resource in the real world but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the search for black gold in the virtual realm of the online slot machine; Texas Tycoon is the name of this game, it’s developed by Merkur Gaming and it’s full of southern stereotypes – read all about it below.
Texas Tycoon is a five reel slot with three rows and up to ten paylines; the Merkur design is easily recognisable with the game contained in a brushed metal box but behind the neat reels there’s a faintly foreboding view of oil wells stretching off into the distance underneath a threatening skyline.
There are five high value symbols including three characters – the be-hatted Tycoon, his wife and a scantily-clad girl draped over a posh car (perhaps his mistress?) – a gold watch and a cigar/brandy combo; 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values. The high value symbols can all appear stacked on the reels.
The wild symbol is a an erupting oil well which is always three reel positions high; it will substitute for all others to help form winning combinations.
There are no extra bonus features in this game but there is an opportunity to gamble any winnings.
Each win can be gambled and there are two options here:
- Card Gamble – bet on the colour of the next card drawn to double your winnings up to a maximum of £150.00.
- Ladder Gamble – work your way up a fruit machine-style ladder, again the maximum win is £150.00.
If you’re looking for bells, whistles and bonus features then Texas Tycoon probably isn’t your thing but it’s a neat enough slot with some smooth gameplay and a cigar-chomping main character. It comes with an RTP of 95.95%.
