The expression "Strike it rich" is not from a game, it stems from the Texas oil fields where lucky tycoons were and are still able to make their millions from the endless supply of oil that exists in the State of Texas. This Texas Tycoon Slots game that skims the surface of these lives offers players five reels and twenty five paylines of excitement and chances to win within the confines of the world of oil rigs and mining. Players are able to try out the game for fun and practice despite the random progressive jackpot that is offered with the game. During the play for fun mode the player does not have a chance to win the random progressive jackpot that can be won at the end of any spin in the real money game. The random progressive jackpot grows with every dollar that is invested in the game.
The Texas Tycoon himself is the wild symbol appearing only on reel 3 in the base game. When appearing the Tycoon can replace other symbols in a payline in order to complete that line. If the tycoon is used to replace a symbol multipliers of 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x the winning payline are applied. The scatter symbol is the oil well and this offers players multiplying payouts. Five of the oil wells reward players with 200x the coin bet placed, four of the oil wells reward players with 20x the coin bet placed and three of the oil wells reward players with 2x the coin bet placed. In addition three and more of the oil wells leads players to a pick and win game in which they can win up to 25 free spins during which all winnings are tripled.
The free spins can be triggered again, the player can also win a random progressive jackpot that can be won at any stage of the game and there are wild wins. This all gives players a small taste of the good life that these oil tycoons receive when living in Texas and making their mark in the world of oil.
