The desire to strike it rich with black gold is the inspiration behind Oil Mania – a five reel slot, with three rows and up to twenty five pay-lines from NextGen Gaming. The slot is themed around oil, and though the subject might be a serious one since oil is the most declining natural resource in the present times, you can expect some good times and lots of fun when you take to the reels of this slot.
The setting for this slot is in a vast oil field, with rigs all over and the sun can be seen setting in the horizon. Four high value symbols are used and they include a suitcase full of cash, a green-garbed oil worker, a gleaming gold car and a profit forecast. The lower value symbols are represented by the normal card icons of J, K, Q, A, 9 and 10.
There are no scatters during the base game, and the oil tycoon acts as the bonus symbol responsible for activating one of the feature games.
Below are some of the game bonus features you can expect to find in Oil Mania slot:
Upwild Feature: The Oil Tycoon can make appearance only on the second, third and fourth reels and when it does appear, it will trigger the Upwild bonus feature – is an interesting and enjoyable bonus game. When this feature is triggered, an oil well wild will appear below the reels on which the tycoon appeared on and by doing so, the bottom symbol will be turned into a wild. You will also get up to three free spins, with each spin extending upwards until the entire reel turns into a wild.
If you manage to land to another Oil Tycoon scatter when the feature is on, you will get additional three spins as well as two wilds reels. This will go on until you exhaust all the spins, after which the prize will be calculated so that you know the total value of you what you have won.
Gamble Feature: You can decide to gamble any win you get by using the gamble feature located beneath the reels and which becomes active each time you have a winning combination. If you choose the feature, your task will be to guess correctly the colour of the next card or suit to be drawn for a chance to double or quadruple your wins respectively. If you get it wrong, you lose the winnings and you will be taken back to the base game.
