Where to play?
Texan Tycoon is one of the older Realtime Gaming (RTG) video slot machines. The reason why I decided to review it because it received glowing reviews from most of the top portal casinos. The slots comes with 25 paylines and 5 reels.
Based on my playing experience the average payout percentage is 96%. The theme of the game is about a Texan oil tycoon replete with a hillbilly soundtrack. What makes the game even more interesting is that it offers regular payouts during the base game.
It’s also loaded with free spins and offers a progressive jackpot. At the time of writing the total payout was $8,000 and counting. In my books this is a winner. I managed to notch up a win of $475 in the free play mode. Keep in mind when the game is played for real cash it becomes slightly more volatile.
The game graphics is pretty standard. Paying icons that play off across the reels are the Texan tycoon, oil drums, oil wells, rigger, stacks of dollar bills, trucks and card symbols from 9 to Ace. The scatter is the oil well and Texas oil billionaire the wild.
Don’t start drilling for oil until you selected the amount of coins you wish to bet per line. At 25 lines the minimum bet per spin is $0.1 and the max bet $6.25. The game is tailor-made for players with limited and large bankrolls.
Everything Is Bigger In Texas
I guess the old saying ”go big or go home” originated from Texas. Having played Texan Tycoon I tend to agree with this statement. When five oil wells appear bets are multiplied by the scatter pays up to a whopping 200 times, heeha! The wild icon is the Texan tycoon when it appears in a winning combination it pays out up to 10x.
When the 5 stacks of dollar bills appear any place across the reels 1,500 credits with a multiplier of 10 times will be paid out. Like all RTG progressive games; Texan Tycoon’s jackpot can pay out at any time. The slot’s current jackpot is displayed just above the reels.
Oil Wells And Multiplier
Multipliers make a slot game more fun since they double, triple or quadruple all wins. This rings true for the Texan Tycoon. The pick me bonus feature is triggered when 3 or more oil well symbols appear. When 3 of them appear you must pick one, up to 25 free spins can be awarded. The free spins bonus round can be re-triggered.
With a host of customization features Texan Tycoon is as good as it gets. The slots offers decent payouts during the base game. It’s relatively easy to trigger the bonus game where all wins can be tripled. What I like about this RTG slots machines is that even Grandpa can play it. But no game is perfect, it can become a bit monotonous after extensive play and the graphics are a bit dull.
