Free Oil Mania Slots
There’s gold in them thar hills! Well, maybe not gold, but there are plenty of virtual chips to win when players mosey out west to see what’s under the rich Texas soil. Get ready to set up camp, break ground, and see if it’s time to make a fortune or surrender to the fickle hand of fate.
For those ambitious fortune seekers who aren’t afraid to slap on some rubber boots and grab a shovel, the stage is set for success with oil wells galore and barrels of money to be had. This game is all about striking it rich and though the graphics are somewhat less dynamic than other NextGen casino games, the theme is still clear. If the oil fields in the background weren’t enough, there are also flashing slogans at the bottom of the spin screen – “Look for the Oil Tycoon,” “Black Gold, Texas Tea,” “Time to Get Crude,” and “Grease the Wheels of Success” all wink at players while they’re waiting to spin.
Playing the Oil Mania Slot Game
Bets start at just 2c – perfect for budget players – but high rollers can crank it up to $2 per line. Players can also select how many lines they want to bet, from just 1 all the way up to 25. There are a whopping 25 different possible paylines in Oil Mania, proving that getting rich quick – or at least finding enough oil to keep the operation going – may be easier than it seems.
Players can initiate a spin by clicking on the green and brown play button on the right hand of the screen or they can leave the dirty work to the minions by selecting autoplay. The autoplay button has two swirling arrows and sits just to the left of the play button. Clicking on it reveals a choice of anywhere from 5 to 100 successive spins so players can watch their bounty pile up with lifting so much as a finger.
There are 10 symbols on the reels in the Oil Mania slot game but they’re nicely done. First there’s the hard-working oil driller, his overalls and hat splattered in so-called black gold, as well as a shiny gold automobile (the cool vintage kind), a case full of cash, a picture of soaring profit charts, and six different playing cards (9 through ace). The biggest payout is tied to the oil man – if he hits paydirt with 5 of his symbols on the spin screen, players can win up to 2500 times their bet. Those fancy cars are packing a trunkful of possible cash with a possible 1000x the set bet in store for anyone who finds 5 of the Oil Tycoon’s convertibles lined up on the spin reels.
The Oil Mania Upwild Feature
Anytime the nattily dressed Oil Tycoon appears on the second, third, of fourth reels, the Upwild Feature is triggered. Gushing oil wells spring up from the sides of the screen as well as the reel with the spray growing one position with each of the three free games. Each time another Oil Tycoon shows his grinning face during the Upwild Feature, the bonus is retriggered and the fun starts again with a full three free spins.
The oil well wilds are automatic stand-ins for any other symbols on the wheel and payouts can get huge. We’re talking massive potential payouts that’ll have players shacking up in shiny mansions in Beverly – Hills, that is. It all depends on how many wilds pop up in a round (anytime the bonus is retriggered payouts are exponentially larger).
Extra Oil Mania Gambling Feature
Oil Mania doesn’t get bogged down in fussy features – after all, this is all about cold hard cash and the sooner players get to drilling the quicker everyone gets paid. There is, however, a Gambling Feature for players who like to live dangerously. The button can be used after each spin win. Clicking on it reveals a pop-up window and a chance to bet on the color and suit of a face-down playing card. Guessing the card’s color correctly will double the win while guessing the suit correctly is worth a whopping 4x the winning amount.
Overall Play Experience
Oil Mania is a fun-filled game with a twangy banjo soundtrack and a whimsical theme. Oil Mania is all about handing out wins and it seems like the Upwild Feature is triggered fairly often. This makes for a fun and entertaining game with few lulls and even few distractions. No need to choose between SuperPay buttons or regular pay, just dial in a bet, just pony up the desired amount of chips and chase the big one. Who knows what you may hit!
