We’ve come across the “everything is bigger in Texas” theme in many casino games, but Texan Tycoon slots by Realtime Gaming (RTG) is one of our absolute favorites.
If you’ve dreamed of hitting it big in the oil industry, if you realize this is never going to happen for you, there’s still hope. You can spin the reels, cross your fingers (and toes), and hope that the tycoon himself steps in and turns you into a big winner.
The oil theme is present throughout the game, including with the graphics, audio, and background images. This is also the case with the reel symbols, which include a tycoon, oil drums, oil wells, trucks, and a variety of playing card symbols.
A Standard Layout
This 5-reel, 25-payline online video slot machine is similar to many others in terms of how it’s configured.
You can wager anywhere from a single penny on one payline to $.25 on all 25 paylines. This works out to a maximum wager of $6.25.
Thanks to its flexibility, it suits low limit players as well as those who are more free with their money.
Play for Free Online
One of the biggest benefits of most RTG slot games is the ability to play for free. The Texan Tycoon slot machine is no different, as you don’t need any money in your account to get started.
Playing for free is all about having fun. You can’t win real money in return, but there’s nothing stopping you from having the time of your life.
A Mobile Experience
Well before the days of the iPhone, people throughout the state of Texas were drilling for oil. Many things have changed since then, and slot machines are now available for online play via mobile devices.
The mobile friendly Texan Tycoon game is designed for gameplay on both smartphones and tablets, allowing you to enjoy the experience even if you’re on the go.
Your Search for Black Gold
You don’t have to get your hands messy to play this game, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to win. Here are some things you should remember:
- Your payout is multiplied by up to 200x when you collect five oil well scatter symbols.
- The tycoon symbol is wild, allowing it to replace all others to help form a winning combination. Even better, it triggers a 10x multiplier.
- Five stacks of cash symbols trigger the biggest payout of 1,500 credits, plus a 10x multiplier.
As with most RTG games, there’s also a random progressive jackpot. You can be awarded this money at any time, with the payout regularly reaching $10,000.
This may not make you “oil tycoon rich,” but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.
Free Games, Too
Three or more scatter symbols take you to the pick me feature. It’s there that you’re asked to choose from one of several oil well symbols, with this revealing your number of free spins (up to 25).
Here are two interesting features associated with the free spin game:
- All wins during the free spin round are tripled.
- The feature can be retriggered an endless number of times.
We’ve found it kind of difficult to access the free spin bonus, but once you’re there you’re in for a good time.
You’re never going to find oil unless you keep digging. The same holds true with Texan Tycoon slots. If you want to win, you need to keep spinning the reels.
It’s not the only game with this theme, as others, such as Texas Tea by IGT, are similar in many ways. Even so, it’s definitely one of our favorites. We’ll leave you with our three top features:
- The option to play for free and real money, even on mobile devices.
- The free spin feature with triple payouts.
- The progressive jackpot that always seems to be above or around $10k.
