Bally’s Texas Tycoon Slot is a 5-reel slot with 5 or 10 variable paylines and a maximum jackpot of €5,000 per line. The exciting game will have you pumping for oil in the ground and standing at the top along with the Tycoon.
The graphics in this game include the poker symbols at the lower end of the paytable, but they quickly rise to symbols that relate to wealth and at the top of the table there is the Tycoon. The symbols are clearly and colorfully drawn, and the graphics of the game fit the theme quite nicely. The music and sound effects are a little better than average, but unfortunately, the music gets repetitive after a short while, so I turned it off.
The wagers in the Texas Tycoon slot range from €0.05 to a maximum of €50, and the theoretical payback to the players is 95.95%, which is quite useful for an online slot.
The special symbol in the game is the derrick, which can stand as a wild symbol for any other symbol. The symbol can expand to three spaces on the entire reel, which means that you can get between 1 – 3 wild symbols on a reel. While the game does not have any scatter symbols, free spins, or other bonus games, it does have two risk games where you can try to increase winnings from less than €150 up to a maximum of €150.
Unfortunately, Texas Tycoon is not yet available for mobile devices, and you can only play the game on computers. I liked that the game is quite easy to understand, and with the expandable wild symbols, your chances of winning increase dramatically. However, I would have liked a scatter symbol or bonus game since the game only has ten paylines, and wins may not be easily achieved as a result. Therefore, for the best chances of winning, we also recommend that you play with all ten lines simultaneously.
