Oil Mania is a 5 reel video slot from NextGen made up of 25 paylines with an added Bonus icon which can trigger a special free spins feature with something called Upwilds. Real-money players can look forward to wins of up to $5,000; everyone else is welcome to play the game with fun-money in the window above.
Oil Mania is themed around Texas oil and everything that goes with it. The design is done in a cartoonish style featuring themed symbols depicting oil rigs, workers and black gold turned into cold hard cash. The lucky Oil Tycoon acts as a Bonus symbol with the ability to share some of its wealth through a free spins bonus feature. The bonus free games have an added unique Wild symbol that will gradually expand to cover all three positions on the reel. The Wild icon is available only during the bonus feature.
The highest paying icon depicts a worker covered in oil-stains, which ironically resembles the real-life situation, if you know what I mean. With 5 of these icons on an active line you’re looking at 2,500 coins times your line bet. To start spinning the reels you need to have your total stake configured. You can do that by choosing lines and bet per line. There are 25 lines to be activated and bets run between $0.01 and $2. The control panel also includes an Auto Play option and a Gamble feature.
The game has an added bonus feature called the “Upwild” and it’s triggered with 3 Oil Tycoons anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll gain 3 free spins with the Oil Well below gushing Wild oil. This is basically a wild icon which expands onto the next reel position with every spin. Additional free games are awarded when Bonus icons appear again during the feature.
The added Gamble feature on the control panel becomes available after every win in the base game. If you decide to activate it you’ll get to gamble your last win for a chance to double or quadruple it.
