In today’s socio-political scenario, oil and petro dollar are two of the most significant economic instruments. Two gulf-wars have been fought and there has been significant struggle going in the Middle East to wrest control of the oilfields. The entertainment industry has taken to this conflict as a moneymaking opportunity and innumerable movies and documentaries have been made highlighting this issue. NextGen is no minnows when it comes to creating thematic slot machines and has been quick to jump into the bandwagon and has come up with an oil-themed online video slot game featuring four high valued symbols, set in a vast field with a setting sun in the background.
Oil Mania Bonuses with No Deposit
Although construed on a rather serious issue, free slot Oil Mania is a real fun game with a conventional 5-reel, 25 –payline combo. As is common with games from the NextGen Gaming Software stable, Oil Mania features a bet range of 0.01 to 2 with one being the maximum and minimum bet size. It also features a “Max Bet” symbol hitherto unseen in most of the online slot games. Players can chose the number of lines they want to play for while the “Lines” automatically selects all the 25 lines. As you click on the “Spin” button, the game is triggered and the “Autoplay” button allows the reels to spin without any intervention.
Set in an oil rig, a gleaming gold car, a profit forecast ,a green-garbed oil worker and a suitcase full of cash and represent the high-valued symbols while 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the lower values.
The “Oil” symbol is the wild, which turns all other bonuses on the reel wild except the “Oil Tycoon” – the designated Scatter symbol of the game, allowing the player to up their ante and be a little more cash rich. The Oil Tycoon symbol is configured to appear only on reels 2,3 and 4 and triggers the Upwild Feature which is basically a free spins feature. As the Oil Tycoon lands on the second, third or the fourth wheel, the player is awarded three free spins and a jet stream of oil gushing from the earth, which goes up one level with each spin until the entire reel, turns wild.
As is common with most slots across the world, Oil Mania features a Gamble feature denoted by the standard Hearts & Clubs icon. Guessing the color of the facedown card correctly doubles the winnings while guessing the color of the entire suit quadruples the bounty. The player can anytime claim their winning by clicking on the “Take Win” button.
Oil Mania may not one of the most technically challenging or one of the most rewarding online slots from NextGen’s stable of thematic online slot games, but with its off-the-road theme and moderate RTP of ~96% , and a ubiquitous setting makes it a pretty compelling game to play.
