Texan Tycoon is one of the older RTG Bitcoin slots and has being a feature in online casinos since 2009. The game is so full of extras that even the fussiest slot spinners are sure to be impressed by the bonus action it has to offer. As the name suggests, this slot follows of the antics of a mustachioed, Stetson-wearing oil tycoon from the deep south of the US as he hunts for crude oil, known in this game as ‘Black Gold’. This Black Gold has definitely made the hero of Texan Tycoon very rich and promises to do the same for quite a few lucky players with its special features and progressive jackpot.
This is a five reel, 25 pay line Bitcoin slot game. Using the control settings beneath the reels, players are able to adjust the number of active pay lines from one to 25 and the value of the coins on each line. Once these betting stakes have been set, players will be left with an overall wager which could be as low as 1c or as high as $125 per spin. This level of variance is great, as it means that bettors of all playing styles and budgets can enjoy Texan Tycoon. The graphics themselves are fitting for the theme of the game but have been designed in a pretty underwhelming style – especially as RTG games usually stand out for their high quality artwork. Symbols include oil drums, oil wells, rig workers, stacks of dollar bills and – of course – the Tycoon himself. He is the highest paying symbol in the game and the trigger for some of the bonus features.
When the Texan Tycoon symbol forms part of a winning combination, it will automatically add a multiplier to whatever the winning amount is. Depending on how many Tycoon symbols have shown up on the reels, this multiplier could be 2X, 3X, 5X or 10X the prize. The scatter symbol in this Bitcoin slot is represented by the oil well. Just like striking oil in real life, finding this symbol can make for some massive amounts of money. The size of the prize given out by this scatter depends on how many appear on the reels at once; from two oil wells which award 1X the total bet all the way up to five oil wells which take it all the way up to 200X. Finally, the oil well scatter also acts as a trigger for the exciting free spins feature in Texan Tycoon. When three scatters show up on the reels, players are presented with a choice of three wells to choose from. Picking the right one will result in a top prize of 25 free spins.
RTG can always be relied on to produce enjoyable, high standard slots with fun-filled themes and Texan Tycoon is yet another great example of this. Over the years that this Bitcoin slot has been on the market it has been a big success, particularly among US players. The only negative aspect of Texan Tycoon is that the graphics are quite dull and, compared to some of the newer RGT numbers, the overall appearance isn’t great. However, the free spins and multiplier features on offer here are as good as any other game around.
